Podmínky ochrany osobních údajů

Bubenik Partners je přední executive search společnost ve střední a východní Evropě, kterou založil Jan Bubeník v roce 2001 v Praze.

Naše profesionální pověst byla vybudována spoluprací při obsazování nejvyšších manažerských pozic u našich klientů, a to napříč odvětvími v České republice, na Slovensku i po celém světě.

Kromě přímého vyhledávání manažerů na vrcholové pozice (executive search) nabízíme celou řadu dalších služeb manažerského poradenství včetně outplacementu, koučování, kariérního poradenství, on-boardingu, na míru šitých workshopů a individuálního i týmového posuzování kompetencí manažerů.

Jako poradenská společnost v kontaktu s kandidáty i klienty zpracováváme značné množství osobních údajů. Veškeré tyto údaje spravujeme výhradně v souladu s platnou legislativou.

Jaké osobní údaje shromažďujeme

Zpracováváme základní osobní údaje, jako jsou například akademický titul, jméno, datum narození a další informace, jež jsou běžně součástí životopisu, který s námi jako kandidát sdílíte (jako např. dosažené vzdělání, předchozí zaměstnání, profesní zkušenosti a kariérní aspirace). Shromažďujeme samozřejmě i údaje nezbytně nutné pro navázání a udržení vzájemného kontaktu (telefonní číslo, e-mail atd.).

Kde uchováváme osobní údaje

Osobní údaje shromážděné během komunikace a spolupráce s kandidáty uchováváme v zabezpečené databázi provozované na naší partnerské platformě Not Actively Looking, k níž mají přístup výhradně oprávnění zaměstnanci Bubenik Partners.

Alternativně kandidátům doporučujeme, aby si sami vytvořili vlastní osobní profil na platformě Not Actively Looking, a tímto způsobem s námi sdíleli nejen svůj životopis, ale také se sami rozhodli, jaké osobní údaje nám poskytnou a co nám řeknou o své kariérní historii a profesních aspiracích. Takto vytvořený profil si každý kandidát spravuje a aktualizuje sám.

Jak používáme osobní údaje

Tyto údaje se používají obvyklým způsobem pro naši profesi. Cílem je poskytnout našim klientům požadované služby v manažerském poradenství. To může zahrnovat prezentaci profilu vybraného kandidáta klientovi během diskuse o konkrétní příležitosti pracovního uplatnění pro tohoto kandidáta, oslovení kandidáta s nabídkou konkrétní pracovní pozice, anebo ověření detailů z profilu daného kandidáta či hodnoceného manažera.

Jak dlouho osobní údaje ukládáme

Osobní údaje uchováváme po dobu nezbytně nutnou k dosažení účelu zpracování osobních údajů či po dobu, po kterou máme s kandidáty či dalšími manažery, s nimiž spolupracujeme v konkrétním projektu, přetrvávající vztah. Po splnění smluvních povinností, anebo po vypršení platnosti souhlasu se zpracováním dat, jsou osobní údaje smazány nebo anonymizovány.
