Cookies can, among other things, record: how long you stay on the website, which pages you read, whether you have visited the site before, and what operating system you are using.

The processing of your ordinary personal data, such as name, address, telephone number and e-mail address, is permitted, cf. GDPR article 6 (1) (f), to allow IT Optimiser to pursue its legitimate interests, for example, relating to recruitment, unless your interests take precedence. A specific assessment of such interests is always carried out.

IT Optimiser can also process your personal data on the basis of the consent that you specifically submitted, cf. GDPR article 6 (1) (a) and article 9 (1) (a), for example, in connection with you providing us with your personal ID number. Please be aware that you can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting IT Optimiser.

6. How does IT Optimiser share your personal data?

IT Optimiser will not sell your personal data on, and your personal data is not shared in any other way than described in this personal data policy.

We only use third parties (processors) in the EU/USA for digital storage and associated processing. (Transfer to the USA is approved by the EU Commission following implementation of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield.) These processors only process the data on behalf of IT Optimiser and may not use it for their own purposes. There is a data processing agreement in force between IT Optimiser and all processors, in which IT Optimiser dictates how personal data must be processed by the processors. In addition, IT Optimiser demands that all processors meet the data security requirements, see the applicable legislation.

If you are registered in IT Optimiser’s consultant database, your data, once you have consented to this, will be shared with IT Optimiser’s partners in connection with their recruitment process. In this context, your name, telephone number, address and CV will be shared.

Regarding consultants

Personal data regarding consultants, that are registered in our database, is retained for 5 years after the latest contact with the consultant. However, IT Optimiser continuously deletes personal data from the consultant database, if the data is no longer true or relevant, in relation to the purpose for which the data was collected.

Regarding job applications

Unsolicited job applications for employment with IT Optimiser will be stored for up to 6 months. Job applications received on the basis of job vacancies for jobs at IT Optimiser, are stored until employment takes place, the applicant is rejected or the position is rejected by the applicant.

In general

Personal data are kept as long as we have a contractual/customer relationship with the data subject and are deleted 6 months after the last contact with the data subject.

Parts of your personal data will be erased as soon as they are no longer relevant or true and fair.

In addition, your data will also be retained where other legislation gives cause for doing so, e.g. in order to exercise a legal claim, or to comply with applicable legislation, such as in connection with SKAT (Danish Customs and Tax Administration).

All personal data digitally processed by IT Optimiser is stored on servers, that are protected by firewalls. If processing involves personal data in physical form, such data is stored in locked cabinets.
