Privacy and security

Privacy is an important issue and we can imagine you have a few questions about how we ensure your privacy. If you’re a client, a candidate or if you contact us, you leave some of your personal information in our hands. We understand you would like know which data we keep, what we do with it and whether we keep this information safe and secure. We are transparent in our privacy and security policies to create a sense of trust and so that you, the client or the candidate, know your privacy is being safeguarded. If you have any questions after reading this article, feel free to contact us at We are more than happy to answer your questions.

Your data is in safe hands

You can rest assured that the information you have given us is very well protected. We secure our website with one of the newest and safest techniques: the Secure Socket Layer (SSL). People who have no business reading or processing your information cannot access your data. If we have given your information to a third party – you can read below why and when we give access to your information – we require third parties to process your data with the same care as we do, and to only use the information for the stated purpose. These agreements have been defined in so-called data processing agreements. If you should have any suspicion that your data is not processed correctly, please contact us as soon as possible.

What information do we process?

We process your information for various purposes. These purposes are explained below. We use information you have provided us as well as information that we have gathered over time, such as information about your visit to our website.

Clients and candidates

We collect and store data from clients and candidates. We need this information to manage our recruitment assignments. If you’re a candidate, we store your name and address, as well as your resume. If you’re a client, we store your company name and contact information, such as your name, address and email address. It is impossible to process recruitment assignments if we do not store this information. We save this data in a Catsone database, and we do not keep this information stored longer than required by law. We have entered into a so-called data processing agreement with Catsone. We, The Sustainable Recruiter and the parties we work with, have outlined rules which meet the regulations of the General Data Protection Regulation. We signed this agreement once we were 100% convinced that these parties comply with the rules set out in the GDPR, and that they apply the same standards as we do concerning the safety of your personal data.

Customer service

You can email us or fill in the contact form on our website. In order to quickly answer your questions, we use your information and keep notes. We only store data necessary for future points of contact such as your email address, unless otherwise specified. We will not ask for other information such as your address or your phone number unless necessary. We store emails for one month, unless the situation requires otherwise, for example during an ongoing conflict.

Analysis and remarketing

We use Google Analytics to analyze our website. We care about your privacy, so we configured Google Analytics in such a way that the information it gathers is completely anonymous. We also use Google Analytics for our advertising campaigns and associated remarketing campaigns. Since the entry into force of the GDPR we can only start collecting data if you have given your express permission to do so, which is why we have modified our cookie notification. You can read more information on cookies below.

Retention period

In principle, we do not store information longer than required by law. This means that we do not store data longer than necessary to finalize recruitment assignments. This could amount to a considerable time period given our work activities. Clients and client information is stored in our database until a client notifies us that he/she wishes to be removed from our database. We store data of candidates until we have concluded our recruitment assignment. We are legally obligated to retain our accounting for seven years in case of audits by the Tax Authorities. We keep our accounting safe and secured, no unauthorized persons can access our books. If you do not agree with how and why we keep your data, you have the right to request deletion of your information. Other information we store we only keep for as long as legally necessary. You can read more information under: Right to access and/or deletion.

Right to access and/or deletion

Is the information we have not correct and do you wish to alter it, or would you like to review the data? If you’re a client, or if you’re a candidate for a job, we have compiled a file with information about you. You have the right to access this file and to alter information if it is incorrect. You also have the right to request deletion of your personal data. Send us an email at with a request for deletion or contact us via the contact form on our website. We will review your personal data together, and we will delete it upon request.

Dutch Data Protection Authority

Do you have any doubts about the alteration or deletion of your personal data after we have been in touch? Are you concerned that we abuse the information you have provided us? Or do you have other complaints with regards to your privacy? You have the right to submit an official complaint with the Dutch Data Protection Authority (Authoriteit Persoonsgegevens). We of course hope that this explanation and/or our contact via phone or email has convinced you of the fact that your personal data is in safe hands.
