2.2.1 What personal data do we process and for what purposes

As a contact person at one of our customers, suppliers, business partners, or other third parties, Klimate will process personal data about you when you communicate with Klimate, for example via emails in the context of Klimate's (potential) contractual relationship with the company by which you are employed or in the context of the conclusion or termination of a contract, contract negotiations or in relation to providing responses to your inquiries. Klimate will process general personal data about you, including your name, email address, telephone number, job title, etc. for these purposes.

Provided that you have accepted a LinkedIn invitation from Klimate, Klimate will process information on your LinkedIn businesss profile for the above-mentioned purposes and with the aim to strengthen the business relationship with you.

Subject to applicable law, Klimate may reach out to contacts at our customers, suppliers, and business partners with relevant updates and information on new projects, laws and regulations, case studies or similar latest news topics.

2.2.2 Legal basis

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is Klimate’s legitimate interests, which, in Klimate’s view, are not overridden by your fundamental rights and freedoms as provided in Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. The legitimate interests pursued by Klimate are the performance of our contractual obligations, the maintenance and strengthening of our customer relationships, marketing initiatives and image branding of Klimate, the invoicing of the services provided to Klimate by the company you are employed by and vice versa, and for documentation purposes where an agreement is concluded by email.

In certain cases, the processing of your personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation imposed on Klimate, for example in connection with the storage of accounting records under the Danish Bookkeeping Act. In such cases, the legal basis is Article 6(1)(c) GDPR.

2.2.3 Disclosure of personal data

Klimate will in certain cases disclose your personal data to business partners or other partners for business purposes. Such third parties include, inter alia, social media providers as specified in para. 4 below.

In certain specific cases, e.g. in the context of disputes, including where disclosure is necessary for the establishment, enforcement or defence of Klimate's legal claims, Klimate may disclose your personal data to advisors or other relevant third parties, if deemed lawful and necessary.

2.2.4 Storage of personal data

If you are a contact person of one of Klimate's customers, suppliers, business partners, or other third parties, Klimate will process personal data about you for as long as necessary, e.g. as long as Klimate is communicating with you because you are our contact person, for three years after termination of the contractual relationship, or until your personal data is no longer necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. Inquiries from potential customers will be deleted 6 months after the inquiry is resolved, unless a longer retention period is required for documentation purposes, e.g. to a dispute, including for the establishment, exercise, or defence of legal claims.

If your personal data are included in Klimate's accounting records, e.g. in connection with invoicing, your data will be stored for five years from the end of the financial year to which the accounting records relate. This is to ensure compliance with our legal obligations under the Danish Bookkeeping Act.

2.3 Job applicants

Klimate kindly requests that you only submit personal data about yourself in your job application, CV, or other relevant material you choose to provide to us, to the extent such information is relevant for the specific position you are applying for. For this reason, please do not include information on your CPR-number in the submitted documents and consider whether there is any other personal information, such as health information, information on family relations or similar, that is not necessary for Klimate's recruitment process.

2.3.1 What personal data do we process and for what purposes

Klimate processes the personal data you have provided to us by submitting your job application, CV, and other relevant material (such as diplomas, references, etc.). Further, Klimate may process personal data that are collected from third parties; for example, from public databases, via LinkedIn or other public social media platforms, or an online search. Klimate may also obtain statements from your former employers, such as information on your job assignments and qualifications, either by contacting references you have specifically stated or by contacting your former employer - in such case, Klimate will inform you that references will be obtained.

2.3.2 Legal basis

Klimate processes the personal data for recruitment purposes to pursue the legitimate interests of Klimate, such as administration of recruitment process and evaluation of the job applicants, including to hire the most suitable candidate for the specific position, cf. Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. If you are chosen for one of our vacancies, processing will also be necessary in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into an employment contract, cf. Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR. As mentioned above under the introduction, Klimate will not process any special categories of personal data (sensitive personal data) about you unless you specifically include such personal data in your job application or in your CV etc. If you decide to include sensitive personal data in your job application etc., the processing is based on section 12 of the Danish Data Protection Act.

2.3.3 Disclosure of personal data

Klimate may disclose personal data about you to certain third-party recipients, such as service providers in relation to recruitment process, such as recruitment platform. Such parties will only process personal data about you on behalf of Klimate and in accordance with the instructions given by Klimate. Thus, these third-party recipients are not permitted to process your personal data for their own purposes.

To the extent it is required by applicable law, Klimate may disclose your personal data to other third parties e.g., public authorities or similar.

2.3.4 Storage of personal data

Your personal data will be stored as long as it is necessary and relevant to pursue the purpose. In general, we store your personal data until the vacant position has been filled and the recruitment process has been completed. We regularly review the personal data we hold, and your personal data will be deleted sooner if we determine that continued storage is not necessary.

2.3.5 Mandatory processing of personal data

Pursuant to the GDPR, you must receive information on whether the provision of personal data is a statutory or contractual requirement, or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract, as well as whether you are obliged to provide the personal data and of the possible consequences of failure to provide such data.

In that connection, please note that under the Danish Health Information Act (helbredsoplysningsloven) job applicants must state, either at its own motion or by request, whether the applicant knows that she/he suffer from an illness or shows symptoms of an illness which will be of material importance for the applicant's capacity for work in the specific job. Further, in compliance with the Danish Health Information Act, Klimate may request the applicant to inform whether she/he has previously suffered from or showed symptoms of an illness which will be of material importance for the applicant's capacity for work in the specific job.

Further, if you are offered a position with us, Klimate must use certain personal data to draft the employment contract including name and address, cf. the Danish Employment Contracts Act (ansættelsesbevisloven).

Lastly, job applicants are subject to the general duty to disclose material facts in relation to the specific job, subject, however, to applicable exceptions under Danish mandatory employment law. Save for any mandatory statutory provisions, this means that you must not withhold information that may be relevant and of material importance to your future employer in relation to the specific job, and that you must answer relevant questions truthfully.

If you do not wish to provide material and relevant information as mentioned above, Klimate may not be able to offer you a position.

3. Transfer of personal data to third countries (countries outside the EU/EEA)

In certain cases, your personal data may be transferred to countries outside the EU/EEA. Klimate will ensure that the transfer takes place in accordance with applicable data protection law. This entails that any party outside of the EU/EEA that will receive your personal data will ensure an adequate level of protection, for example, by entering into the EU Commission's Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) with Klimate. Klimate will ensure the implementation of additional safeguards if deemed necessary on a case-by-case basis.

You can request a copy of the legal basis for the transfer by contacting gdpr@klimate.co.

4. Social media

Our website features integrated plug-ins and/or pixels from the social media Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn. When you visit any of our social media pages or our website with integrated plug-ins, the social media providers will collect and process personal data by means of cookies, provided you have consented to the use of cookies. Such collection and processing of personal data will take place whether you have a social media profile or not.

If you access our website, which features integrated social media plug-ins, your browser will contact the server of that social medium, load the visual presentation of the plug-in and present the content to you. While this is happening, the social media provider will receive information about your use of the website, as well as additional personal data, such as your IP address. Klimate will receive anonymous demographic and geographic statistics from the social media provider about visitors to our website and our social media pages.

Klimate is joint data controller together with the social media providers for the processing of personal data in connection with visits to our social media pages and our website. This means, i.a., that you can contact both Klimate and the social media provider if you wish to exercise your rights under the GDPR. Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn have primary responsibility for ensuring compliance with the GDPR and for responding to requests to exercise data subjects' rights. If you have a social media profile, you can exercise your rights through your account settings.

We have no influence on the amount of personal data that the social media provider collects via the active plugins. For details, please refer to the relevant privacy policy:
