PRIVACY POLICY FOR GREAT PEOPLE APPLICATIONS 

We at Great People Applications believe in privacy and we do our best to ensure that your personal data is handled with utmost care and to make sure that you are aware of all we do with your personal data and about your rights. For this purpose we have written this Privacy Policy and we’d appreciate it if you would take a few minutes to read it.

Great People Applications AB is a Swedish company (reg no 559015-5270) located in Stockholm (in this Privacy Policy, we refer to Great People Applications AB as “Great People”, “Controller” “we” “us” etc.).

We are the “controller” of your personal data, meaning that we control the means and measures of the processing. There are some processes for which we are not the controller even though your personal data is processed by us if you have questions or complaints about such processing you will have to speak to whoever is controller in such cases (we’ll get to which processes this refers to).

If you have any questions, complaints or remarks regarding our processing of personal data, you may contact us at privacy@greatpeopleapp.com, or by regular mail at Engelbrektsgatan 5, 114 32 Stockholm, Stockholm, Sweden.

  1. If you have received an invitation to register with Great People

If you have received an invitation to register with Great People, this is either because your employer has provided us with your e-mail address (they may also provide information about you name, position, department and, of course, employer) so that you can use Great People to recruit great people to your workplace, or because someone else thinks you’re a great person and should join Great People.

Information about which of the above cases is at hand is provided in the invitation.

You can choose to accept the invitation to join Great People in which case you will become a user and what is said below (under “If you are a user of great people”) will start to apply.

If you don’t accept

If you do not accept the invitation to Great People and we have received your details from your employer, you will be able to suggest great people for your workplace via a web page where no login is needed. We will keep your e-mail address in order to provide you with important information (for example a link to the web page) for as long as your employer is our customer (or until your employer tells us to remove it). Your employer is the controller for this processing and you may direct any questions to your employer.

If you do not accept the invitation to Great People and we have received your details from another user, your information will remain in that users contacts (what we call their “Great People list”). The Great People list is a private contact list that the users of Great People can use to recommend you and others for certain job openings. The user is him-/herself the controller of such personal data (though privacy laws may not be applicable in these cases).

If you don’t answer the invitation at all, we will send you a few reminders and then stop processing your data, no later than six months after the first invitation was sent. If we continue to process your data, we will not do this as controller.

  1. If you are a user of great people

If you have chosen to accept an invitation or registered without an invitation you will become a user. When you become a user, you accept our terms and conditions and a contractual relationship is formed where we are obliged to provide the Great People Service (the “Service”) to you.

In order to fulfil these contractual obligations, we need the following data (and will continue to process it as long as you are a user):

  • Your name
  • Your e-mail address

We really don’t need more data than that to enable your use of the Service, but of course you can provide more information, such as 

  • Information about your current workplace, such as employer, your position etc (we may already have this information if your employer provided it, see above under “If you have received an invitation to register with Great People”,
  • Profile picture,
  • Other information.

All such information is completely voluntary to provide and by uploading it you consent to us processing it. You can always change or remove such information in the app, so to withdraw your consent, you simply delete the information. We use the information only to show it to other users of the Service and to analyse user behaviour in order to improve the Service.

  1. With whom do we share your data?

Some or all personal data on your profile might be visible to other users (depending on your app settings), so in this way we share your data with other users.

Apart from that we have a few processors who help us with certain tasks, such as CRM-systems (only contact persons with Customer Companies), analytical software, e-mail and chat services and storage providers (for the server).
