Data Protection Policy

Since the legislative framework has recently changed with the new European regulation on the protection of personal data (GDPR), EASYRECRUE has wished to use this opportunity to put in place the resources required to ensure that it remains a reputable player as regards the new rights and obligations of individuals and businesses.

To do so, we have appointed a Data Protection Officer (DPO) and initiated an important project to check our compliance, overseen by our DPO with the support of a firm specialising in data protection. This process will, in the near future, enable us to make changes to our Data Protection Policy.

EASYRECRUE’s commitment to personal data protection goes beyond simply complying with a legal requirement. It stems in particular from our desire to work with our customers and their future talented staff in a relationship of respect and trust. In accordance with this philosophy, in our view protecting your personal data is essential.

When you use EASYRECRUE products, services and websites, you entrust us with your personal data. This data protection and non-disclosure policy has been designed to inform you of the reasons why and the way in which we collect and process your data.
