Legal Grounds for processing your Personal Data


According to Articles 5 and 6 of the Act, we rely on the following legal grounds to process your personal data:


(a)  Performing a contract - where, in order to perform our obligations under a contract with you or to take steps at your request to enter into a contract with us, it is necessary for us to process your personal data; 


(b)  Compliance with a legal obligation - where we need to process your personal data to comply with legal or regulatory obligations.


(c)  Our legitimate interests or those of a third party - including:

  • providing our services to you;
  • responding to your requests and enquiries;
  • optimising the performance of our website and user experience;
  • informing you about our services and;
  • ensuring that our operations are conducted in an efficient manner.

 

(d) Consent In some circumstances, we will ask for your consent to process your personal data in a way. For example, if you create a user profile or register for our job alerts or other content. To the extent that we are processing your personal data based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.  Please contact us, if you would like to withdraw your consent.


Automated Decision Making


We use a CV parsing tool that enables us to filter through CVs when we receive many applications for roles that we advertise, and to enter relevant key words such as years of experience or field of practice. It then analyses all the CVs uploaded into it and delivers a smaller pool of candidates by matching the key words in candidates’ CVs and ranking the candidates according to their suitability for the role. By doing this, it also eliminates candidates who do not meet the search criteria. Our legal basis for this processing activity is necessity for entering into a contract. 


You have the right to object to the use of automated decision making and to request human intervention. If you would like to exercise this right, please contact us.


Who we share your personal data with


In certain circumstances we will share your personal data with: 


Other companies within our Group 


MPI is part of the PageGroup of companies which operates globally. We may share with or give access to your personal data to other companies within PageGroup which are among the Countries announced by the Turkish Personal Data Protection Board (“the Board”) as countries having adequate measures (“Countries”) or if you provided prior explicit consent to this sharing.


Furthermore, we have in place an intra-group data transfer agreement containing model clauses  approved by the European Commission which permit cross-border transfers of personal data from within the EEA to third countries outside the EEA, (as data protection laws outside the EEA may not provide an equivalent level of protection to EEA data protection laws), (“Model Clauses”). 


If you would like a copy of the Model Clauses, please contact us.


Here you may find a complete list of our European Page entities.

 

Where we need to transfer personal data to another PageGroup company outside the Countriesfor the purposes set out above, we may seek your prior explicit consent and we will comply with any local law transfer requirements.


Third Parties


If you are a candidate, we share your personal data with clients who have vacancies for jobs which you are interested in.


We also share your personal data and, where necessary, special category data with third party service providers who perform services and functions on our behalf, such as:

 

  • conducting employment reference checks;
  • conducting qualification checks;
  • verifying details you have provided from third party sources; 
  • conducting psychometric evaluations or skills tests;
  • hosting personal data for us;
  • providing professional advice to us;
  • providing data analytics to us;
  • carrying out testing and development work on our business technology systems;
  • administering surveys or competitions on our behalf; 
  • assisting us to communicate with you; and
  • providing research and mailing house or other direct marketing services. 


We contractually require minimum standards of confidentiality and data protection from our third party service providers. If we need to send personal data outside the Countries, we will ensure that adequate safeguards are in place, in accordance with the Act.

 

Other Disclosures
 

In addition, we may disclose your personal data: 

 

  • if we are legally required to do so; 
  • to law enforcement agencies, regulators or other government officials;
  • to enforce a contract with you; and
  • to the new business owners and their advisers in the event of a re-organisation, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, or other transfer or disposition of all or any part of our business.


Keeping your personal data secure

 

We have implemented and maintain appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect your personal data from accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access. Only authorised personnel and third party service providers are provided with access to personal data on a need to know basis, and these employees and service providers are contractually obliged to treat this information as confidential. 


How long we hold your personal data for


We will keep your personal data for as long as we need to in order to fulfil the purpose we collected it for, which may be an ongoing purpose. For example, if you’re a candidate, we will retain your personal data for the duration of our business relationship with you and beyond, as we often support candidates with job placements over many years and potentially throughout their careers. 


We keep some personal data for longer than others. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider factors such as the purposes for which we process your personal data, including any legal, regulatory, accounting and reporting  obligations, the nature and amount of personal data that we hold about you, and the potential risk of harm to you from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data. 


Where we process your personal data for direct marketing purposes, we will do so until you ask us to stop, and for a short period after this (to allow us to implement your request). We also keep a record of the fact that you have asked us not to send you direct marketing or to process your data indefinitely, so that we can respect your request.


Your rights in relation to personal data we hold about you 

 

You have several rights under art. 11 of the Act. These rights may include the right to receive confirmation on whether we are processing your personal data, as well as obtaining further information about such processing, and the right to know the purpose for the data processing and if your data is used for such purpose. Furthermore, you have the right to be informed on the third parties to which your personal data is transferred to (inland or abroad); to ask us to correct or delete your personal data and to objection to any adverse conclusion of your data being analysed through automated systems.In addition, you can object to the processing of your personal data in some circumstances (in particular, where we don’t have to process your personal data to meet a contractual or other legal requirement, or where we are using the data for direct marketing). 


These rights may be limited, for example, if complying with your request would reveal personal data about another person, where they would infringe the rights of a third party (including our rights) or if you ask us to delete information which we are required by law to keep or have compelling legitimate interests for keeping. We will inform you of any relevant exemptions we are relying on when we respond to your request.
