2. Purpose and the legal basis for processing personal data

We help the applicants to find the right job, suitable training or entrepreneurship opportunities. We help our customers to find suitable workers, entrepreneurs, or training participants. Users can choose to create a user ID for the service.

Laura Recruitment Ltd will also use personal data for the management and development of customer relations, the design and development of the business, PR, marketing, opinion and market research and analysis as well as statistics.

Legal basis for processing personal data:

  1. Registered User: Processing is based on agreement between the user and Laura Recruitment Ltd (GDPR article 6. 1b).
  2. Completion of the application form which opens directly from the listing: The processing is based on the request of the data subject in order to take steps prior to entering a contract (employment contract or training registration) (GDPR article 6. 1b). In these cases, the contract partner is the party responsible for the listing and in the end that party determines the actual legal basis.
  3. Listings: Job listings may include personal data that is provided by the advertisers. The publication and processing of personal data on these listings is the responsibility of the party responsible for the listing and the processing is based on the agreement (GDPR article 6. 1b).

3. Data processors

Laura Recruitment Ltd mainly handles personal data itself, and the development and maintenance of the service is done by its own experts. However, Layra Recruitment Ltd uses selected subcontractors to enable certain parts of the service to be implemented. Paytrail Plc is the payment service associated with the purchase of listings (Paytrail’s privacy policy: https://www.paytrail.com/en/data-privacy-notice-paytrail-payment-service). The cookie management service is provided by Truendo, a tool that allows visitors to manage their cookie settings.

4. Transferring of data outside the EU or EEA

Laura Recruitment Ltd uses ActiveCampaign platform for email marketing. ActiveCampaign collects ia. information provided through contact forms, information about used devices and browsers, time spent on pages, and page navigation. Data is transferred to the ActiveCampaign based to a customer relationship and according to user-provided information. In B2B marketing, personal data may also be collected from public sources, such as contact information on the company’s websites and different contact information registers. ActiveCampaign is an U.S.-based company, which means that personal data will be transferred outside of the European Union. However, personal data is protected as required by the GDPR with the use of standard contractual clauses. ActiveCampaign is also a certified company of the U.S.-EU Data Privacy Framework.

5. Retention of personal data

Personal data stored on Laura.fi site will be retained for as long as there is a need for data processing. The data will be deleted when they are no longer necessary for the operations of the controller or otherwise necessary. The data of a registered user will be deleted from the service after one and a half year if the user has not been active in that period. Also sections containing personal data will be deleted from listings over one year old.

6. Register content
