Privacy policy for recruitment using Teamtailor

The service for handling recruitments and simplifying the hiring process is powered by Teamtailor on behalf of Hammer & Hanborg Group. It is important that the persons using the Service feel safe with, and are informed about, how we handle User's personal data in the recruitment process. 

The below terms and policies apply to all candidates registered in our candidate network. 

It is our standard routine that every employee at Hammer & Hanborg (H&H) who contacts a potential candidate via telephone or digital channel, always will refer to our web-based candidate database. When a candidate registers his or her infor- mation in the database a mutual contract is entered between us and the registered candidate regarding offering potential career paths.

By registering, you will be available for H&H when searching both publicly and non-publicly announced assignments that H&H believes fits your profile. You can search publicly available assignments yourself via our web. Alternatively, you will be contacted by us to confirm that you approve being part of our candidate processes regarding both public and non-public assignments.

What personal data is collected? As a candidate, you register your personal information in our candidate database. In a shorter form, you enter your contact information and your geographical preferences. Your registration is completed when you upload your resume and/or personal letter.

With the exception for food preferences (related to invitations to events et cetera), H&H will not actively collect or process any sensitive personal data. Such information includes union memberships, political opinions, sexual orientation, religious beliefs or any other information not relevant when recruiting or hiring consultants. It is therefore important that you as a candidate do not include such sensitive personal data that is irrelevant for the assignments you are applying for. 

Personal Identity Number. Personal identity numbers (Swedish: “personnummer”) will only be processed in conjunction with background checks. As a candidate, you should not provide your personal identity number in your resume, application or candidate profile.
