• To assess your application for the job offered and to communicate with you within the recruitment process;

• Based on your consent to send you personalized information on current open job postings.
4. LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING
Personal data within the recruitment process will be used for the assessment of your application and, if an employment relationship is established, also for the execution of the employment relationship. Providing your personal data as part of the application process is voluntary. However, the provision of personal data is necessary for the processing of your application or the conclusion of an employment contract with us.
When you subscribe for our job boards to receive information on current open job postings the relevant legal basis is your consent.
Furthermore, we may process personal data about you where this is necessary to defend ourselves against legal claims arising from the application process that are brought against us. The legal basis for this is Article 10 (1) paragraph 2 and 6 of the Macedonian Personal Data Processing Act ("PDPA").
5. DATA SHARING
We may transfer your personal data to companies affiliated with us provided this is permissible within the scope of the purposes and legal bases outlined above. If you do not wish to be further considered for relevant job offerings, you can request the deletion of your candidate profile, see section “Data retention”.
Furthermore, your information may be shared internally for the purposes of the recruitment exercise. This includes members of the HR and recruitment team, interviewers involved in the recruitment process, managers in the business area with a vacancy and IT staff if access to the data is necessary for the performance of their roles.
Personal data may be processed on our behalf on the basis of contracts pursuant to Article 32 of the PDPA, especially by providers of systems for applicant management and selection procedures. We do not share data with third parties that have no reference to our application management and application procedures or other use cases we describe in section "Purpose of processing personal data".

We retain your personal data in that period in case there is a relevant job offering for which you will be a fitting candidate. You can request the deletion of your candidate profile or the withdrawal of your application by contacting us at email@example.com.
