The protection of your privacy is of particular importance to us, the Talent Club SAS in France, talent.io Recruitment GmbH in Germany, talent.io UK Ltd in the UK and talent.io Netherlands B.V. in the Netherlands (herein after ”talent.io”, “we”, “our”, “us”). Furthermore, it is important to us that you know, at any point, when we store your personal data and how we use it.
What is personal data?
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. A person is identifiable, if the person can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identification number, an email address, a photograph, a phone number or a mailing address.
talent.io is responsible for processing your data. The CNIL is the lead authority for all personal data processing implemented by talent.io.
We collect and process the following categories of data:
Talent club members' data
We process your personal data on the following basis:
talent.io collects your personal data for the following purposes:
When you register on our website, talent.io asks you to fill in a number of personal details (mainly your contact details) but also to answer some preliminary questions regarding your job research (What type of work? Open-ended contract? Part-time? Freelance? Which city? Paris? Munich? Brussels? What position?). The purpose is to build your profile, but above all, to determine whether talent.io Services can help you immediately.
These preliminary details are automatically processed in order to ensure that your research matches the Services we are able to provide in terms of sector, city, position, type of contracts. For instance, if you wish to work in a city or a country where we are not yet implemented, your registration will not be taken into account in order to minimize personal data we collect. You will however be able to submit your application at a later date.
Please feel free to contact us should you want further information or if you think our Services are likely to match your research.
We share the personal data we collect from you with:
We retain your personal data for as long as it is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it has been collected.
As a general rule, when your personal data are no longer needed, we will ensure that they are erased or anonymised.
A Cookie is a small file sent by talent.io – like many other internet services do – to the user’s browser which is then stored on the user’s device in order to recognize the user when he/she revisits our website the next time. Such Cookie usually contains the name of the domain the Cookie originates from, the durability of the Cookie until it expires, and a value in terms of a unique number generated by a respective random generator.
Using such Cookies enables talent.io to recognize the user, and to statistically record the use of the service as well as analyse it in order to improve it.
You can disable Talent’s cookies on your browser as further described below, and the website can be accessed with cookies disabled, but the Service may not be usable or its usability deteriorated without cookies. Cookies that are already on the device may be deleted by the user at any time, manually or doing so via the settings of the browser. We want to point out, however, that using the Service provided by talent.io may possibly be limited or not as convenient without Cookies.
These tools allow us to obtain information about the actual use of our website by collecting data related to the number of visits and the behavior of users during their navigation.
This information is particularly useful to us in order to measure and improve the performance of our website. We may create aggregated anonymized data for advertising, market research, improving existing products and creating new services.
As part of this, talent.io uses tools to optimise user experience by using cookies, text files, which are stored on the user’s device and which enable an analysis of the use of the Service by the user.
Users can prevent the installation of such cookies by a corresponding setting of the browser software. In this case, users will not be able to use the full functionality of the website.
We use elements from third parties including the social networks Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Xing and Whatsapp.
Suppliers of the said plug-ins are the companies Facebook Inc., LinkedIn Corporation and Twitter Inc, Xing SE and Whatsapp Ireland Limited or Whatsapp Inc.. Web page elements are e.g. buttons (so-called “social plug-ins”) or integrated content from the providers.
These plug-ins allow you to interact with social networks, trough so-called "share buttons". Social networks also have the possibility to use these plug-ins for analysis or advertising purposes.
Practically, your browser establishes a direct connection to the server of the respective provider when you visit a page from our website that contains such a plug-in. Therefore, the providers gain knowledge that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, and thus even though you do not have a profile with the respective provider or are not logged in at the time. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a server of the respective provider in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged into your profile, the respective provider can directly assign the visit to Talent’s Service to your profile.
You would need to log out of each provider’s services if you want to prevent providers from directly associating the data collected through Talent’s Services with your profile in that service. Finally, there is the possibility of completely preventing the loading of the website elements with browser add-ons.
We currently contract with several online partners to help manage and optimise our Internet business and communications. We use the services of marketing companies to help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising and how visitors use our Website. To do this, we use Web beacons and cookies provided by the marketing company. A “web beacon,” is also called a web bug or a pixel tag or a clear GIF. Used in combination with cookies, a web beacon is an often-transparent graphic image, usually no larger than 1pixel x 1 pixel, that is placed on a website or in an email that is used to monitor the behavior of the user visiting the website or sending the email. This information helps us learn things about, for example, what pages are most attractive to our visitors and which of our services most interest our customers. If you do not wish to help us learn how to improve our site, products and offers, you can Opt-out of this by changing your browser preferences directly in the search bar by clicking the “padlock” icon 🔒, or by following these instructions.
We implement all appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure the constant security, confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of our information system and of your personal data in order to prevent them from destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or unauthorized access.
Our servers on which your data is stored and a large part of the servers of the service providers we use to exchange and store your personal data are located in Europe.
However, we may also transfer some of your personal data to countries outside the European Union where some of our service providers are located. We ensure beforehand that they comply with their data protection obligations and provide with an appropriate level of protection (i.e., contractual protective clause).
You have a certain number of rights regarding your personal data. Each of these rights is explained in more detail below:
You also have the right to file a complaint to the competent supervisory authority concerning the processing of your personal data. For talent.io, the lead authority for personal data protection is the CNIL (www.cnil.fr).

We encourage you to read the privacy statements and terms and conditions of linked or referenced websites you enter. These third-party websites may send their own cookies and other tracking devices to you, log your IP address, and otherwise collect data or solicit personal data.
WE DO NOT CONTROL AND ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT THIRD PARTIES DO IN CONNECTION WITH THEIR WEBSITES, OR HOW THEY HANDLE YOUR PERSONAL DATA. PLEASE EXERCISE CAUTION AND CONSULT THE PRIVACY POLICIES POSTED ON EACH THIRD-PARTY WEBSITE FOR FURTHER INFORMATION.
Our Service is not intended for children under 16 years of age, and we do not knowingly collect or use any personal data from children under the age of 16.
