Grounds for and limitation of processing

  • Fira processes personal data to the extent required by the recruitment measures and to fulfil the requirements of the legislation.

The employer representatives registered in the system are responsible for processing the application and job applicant data and for storing the applications submitted by the applicants with regard to open, targeted and substitute recruitment processes. Any physical material from the job applicant database obtained by Fira Group Oy as the controller will be disposed of once it is no longer necessary for the purposes of recruitment. Electronic material is stored for a maximum of two years, after which it will be disposed of. The disposal of all applications is carried out by the representatives of Fira Group Oy’s recruitment services using methods complying with the Archives Act.

The processed data and its sources

We collect data in the Job Applicant Register from the applicants themselves with their consent. The job applicant data recorded in the Register depends on what data the employer requests on the application form and what personal data the applicant enters into the system. It is possible for a job applicant to submit the following information through the open or targeted application form: name, contact details and possible attachment (for example a CV).
