What is personal data and what does data processing mean? 

Personal data is information about an identifiable or identified natural person. Processing personal data is, in essence, when any action is taken on personal data, regardless of whether this is an automatic or manual process, i.e., for the purposes of: collection, storage, organizing, modification, reviewing, use, sharing access. Limited data may be deleted or shared. One processes personal data for various reasons; depending on the reason, the application of the data will vary regarding how it is collected, what the legal basis is for its processing and use, as well as the terms for its storage. 

What’s in this policy?

This policy tells you:

  • what information we might collect about you
  • how we might use that information
  • when we might use your details to contact you
  • what information of yours we might share with others
  • your choices about the personal information you give us

Information we collect

We collect information about you directly from you and automatically through your use of our website. We may combine information automatically collected with other information that we have collected about you or was provided to us by you directly. In order to help you protect yourself and your information, we encourage you to provide only the information that is necessary for using our website. If you or any other user of the website sends an email or provides an email address to Frontkom for any reason, we reserve the right to retain that email address to send future notifications in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

By providing Personal Data to www.frontkom.com and other websites belonging to Frontkom, you confirm that you have the necessary permissions to disclose Personal Data to be used by Frontkom in the manner described in this Policy.

Our services sometimes link to services run by other companies’ services. Those companies have their own privacy and cookies policies, so remember that the information you give them will follow their rules and not ours.

Frontkom conducts recruitment for its own needs and for its clients to whom, among others, Frontkom provides access to job candidates.

Cookies 

To a limited extent, we may also collect personal data automatically by using the cookies’ files found on our website. Cookies are small text files saved on the user’s computer or mobile device whilst using the Internet. These files are used to explore some of the functionality provided on the website or act as confirmation that a certain user has seen specific website content. We only use cookie files that are absolutely required for Frontkom’s Services to operate and are used to ensure (“Strictly necessary Cookies”)

  • the user’s session is maintained
  • utilization of data used to log into: www.frontkom.com

Another type of cookie category is for files that, whilst they are not necessary to use the Services, they facilitate enabling: 

  • saving the user’s choice to cancel visibility of their chosen notification, or screening the notification for a specified number of times
  • automatic login to the service (the “remember me” option)

Frontkom also uses third-party services (a list of which is constantly updated) that use cookie files to: 

  • monitor website traffic
  • create anonymity for collected statistics which help Frontkom understand how users visit the website and to constantly improve our products 
  • report on the number of anonymous users of our website to assist with website-visit analysis 
  • check the frequency that specified content is shown to the user 
  • check the frequency on user choice of a specified service
  • measure marketing effectiveness 

At the date of creation of this document, the following third parties provide services on the aforementioned basis:

Frontkom states that after cookie files are discarded, some functionalities provided by our Services may not act properly; in some cases, this can result in an inability to use certain products. 

Entry logs

We collect user information on our Services from their IP addresses by analyzing entry logs. We use this information to diagnose problems related to server activity, possible security breaches, and website management. IP addresses are also used for statistical reasons, namely, to collect and analyze the demographic data of people visiting the website (i.e., regional information to show where the connection was made). On this basis, in some cases, general statistical tables are created and are shared with cooperating third parties. These tables usually contain information about website visibility but do not, however, contain any data enabling identification of a single user (and their identity); we feel it important to highlight this fact. 

We also want to let you know that we may be obliged to reveal information regarding the IP address of a specified user, if demanded (and authorized by f the provisions of law) by state authorities who perform their own investigations and/or cases. 

Newsletter

We may also process your personal data if we send you the Newsletter – provided that you have previously given your consent.

Automated personal data procession 

Information that we collect regarding our Services’ activities may be automatically processed (including using profiling); however, this will not result in any legal consequences for any natural persons or affect their situation in any way. We state that with regards to profiling: 

  • we do not process any sensitive data
  • we only use the data we have collected 
  • data obtained through profiling does not always have to be pseudonymized (pseudonymisation is defined within the GDPR as “the processing of personal data in such a way that the data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, as long as such additional information is kept separately and subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure non-attribution to an identified or identifiable individual”)
  • if we cannot reach our target by profiling collected personal data, we use normal data such as e-mail, IP details, and cookies 
  • we do this for analysis or a prognosis of personal preferences and/or interests of anyone using our Services in order to match our content to their preferences 
  • we also do this for marketing reasons, i.e,. to match the marketing offer with the said user’s preferences

How can we use your personal information?

We have to have a valid reason to use your personal information. It’s called the “lawful basis for processing“. Sometimes we might ask your permission to do things, like when you subscribe to an email or newsletter. Other times, when you’d reasonably expect us to use your personal information, we don’t ask your permission, but only when:

  • the law says it’s fine to use it, and
  • it fits with the rights you have (described below)

We use your information for these types of things:

  • to deliver our services and to provide you with information about them
  • to deal with your requests, complaints and enquirie
  • to check if you’re using our product and to keep the licensing database accurate and up to date
  • to personalise services and give you things more tailored to your tastes

Security

We’re strongly committed to keeping your data safe. 

At the same time, no service can be completely secure – if you have any concerns that your personal information has been put at risk, please get in touch straight away.

Frontkom uses robust security measures to protect Data from unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and help ensure the appropriate use of Data. When the Services are accessed using the Internet, Transport Layer Security (TLS) technology protects Customer Data using both server authentication and data encryption. These technologies help ensure that Customer Data is safe, secure, and only available to the Customer to whom the information belongs and those to whom the Customer has granted access. Frontkom also implements other advanced technology measures to prevent interference or access from outside intruders. Frontkom offers enhanced security features within the Services that permit Clients to configure security settings to the level they deem necessary, such as forced password changes and IP-restrictions.

Some companies that provide services to us run their services from outside the European Economic Area. We only let that happen if we are satisfied with their levels of security. Keep in mind that when you give us personal information it could be being transferred, stored or processed in a location outside the EEA.
