At Misson Talent (that is Mission Talent in Germany and its partner agency Mission Talent cc in South Africa, in further text “Mission Talent”, or “we”), we place great importance on the security of your data and commit ourselves to protect the privacy and treat personal data of every person using our services as highly confidential.

You may visit our website without providing your personal data. During your website visit, we only save access data containing any personal details. The data is solely assessed to improve our website services and does not allow insight into your identity.

Personal data is only saved during your visit to our website if you voluntarily submit it to us, for example, by using our online contact form or by sending us an application through our application form.

As an executive search agency, we engage in active sourcing. By doing pro-active research, we identify potential candidates which might have an interest in the roles for which we are recruiting. Through networking, but also via organisational websites and portals such as Xing and LinkedIn, we find and obtain contact details of the potential candidates in order to contact them to see if they would be interested in our roles. If we have your contacts, this also means we might have been told about you, someone might even connect us to you or give us your contact details. We consider having a legitimate interest to process this data, but you may be assured that your name and other details will be secure in our systems and will not be shared with anyone outside Mission Talent. You can also ask us at any time to delete this data. If we feel you have an interest in hearing from us, we will contact you to enquire if you would be interested in speaking with us regarding a certain available position.

You also have the possibility to submit your data through our online contact form as well as to upload your résumé. Entry of this data is explicitly done on a voluntary basis.

In all our recruitment procedures (when we approach candidates or vice versa) the applications will go through the same process. All candidates submit their CV and motivation letter (Word documents) via Mission Talent’s online system. When doing this, they give written consent that we may store and review personal data for a specific period.

We use the application data we receive from potential candidates only to evaluate and process their application. This personal data shall be treated confidentially and shall be used solely for its intended purpose according to the respective valid data protection provisions and shall not be forwarded to a third party outside our organisation (Mission Talent Germany and Mission Talent cc in South Africa) without consent. If you are a potential candidate who have applied for a role, your data shall only be transmitted to our clients (the employing organisation) after an extensive screening call with you and having received your written consent.

Once Mission Talent has completed a recruitment process, your personal data will be deleted from our system unless we have obtained your written consent that your data may remain in our database. Thereafter, any transmission to third parties may only take place after another screening call and after having received your written consent.

Transmission of your data to another third party or for marketing purposes shall not take place under any circumstances.

For our marketing purposes, we only use data of potential clients that are publicly available, or data provided by our clients, based on legitimate interest ground.

During a recruitment process it may be the case that we have to transmit your personal data to a third party country/organisation whose data protections laws are inferior to those in the European Union. In those instances, we will do our best to offer a substantively similar protection of personal data shared with us.

Mission Talent cc (our South African partner agency) implements the same level of data protection as Mission Talent Germany as is required by EU law and General Data Protection Regulation. 

Certain data that we process, might be processed and stored outside the European Union, on locations determined by our processors.

We put special emphasis to employ technical and organisational measures in order to safeguard our website and other systems against loss, destruction, access, changes or the distribution of your data by unauthorized persons, taking into account the risks appropriate to each dataset or data-processing activity.

However, please note that notwithstanding our best efforts, complete data security and protection against all risks are not possible.

We will keep your Personal Data for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which they are processed. We have set out specific retention periods where possible. Where that has not been possible, we have set out the criteria we use to determine the retention period. 

You always have the right to get information about the ways in which we process your data, to obtain a copy of the personal data being processed by us, as well as the right to request that it be corrected or erased (the right to be forgotten). Under certain circumstances, you may also object to processing, or ask that processing of your data is restricted, or that it be transmitted directly to another controller (data portability). You may always withdraw consent previously given to us.  

In accordance with applicable laws, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a competent supervisory authority.
