Rights of data subject

As a job applicant, you can exercise the following rights:

  • Right of inspection – by exercising this right, you can obtain both an inspection and a copy of what personal data we process about you.

  • Right to withdraw consent – exercising this right allows you to withdraw a previously given consent at any time. This will stop any further processing.
