1. Some terms to be clear about

First, we need to be clear about how we use some words in this Privacy Notice.

It may seem obvious, but in this Privacy Notice, you will be referred to as ‘You’.

When we talk about ‘us’ or the ‘Company’ we mean Adecco Outsourcing d.o.o. Beograd. We have our registered office at Bulevar Milutina Milankovića 1i, 11000 Belgrade, Serbia. The Company is part of the Adecco Group AG (Adecco Group) with company headquarters at Bellerivestrasse 30, 8008 Zurich, Switzerland, the largest HR services provider in the world. Through its various companies and business lines the Adecco Group provides several HR (Human Resources) activities like staffing, secondment, payroll services, recruitment & selection, testing solutions, career transition, talent development, training & education, outplacement and international mobility (‘our Activities’).

To carry out our Activities the Company uses several IT systems. In some cases, the Company provides a Self-Service Portal (‘Portal’) for its candidates/personnel. The Portal allows you to search and apply for jobs the Company and its sister companies advertise which match your interests, skills and/or experience, in the locations where you have expressed an interest in working.

Finally, this Privacy Notice is about how we process your information as an individual. It is not about how we process information about companies (although sometimes the two overlap). This type of information is sometimes called ‘personal information’, ‘personally identifiable information’ or ‘PII’. We use the term ‘personal information’ or ‘data’ in this Privacy Notice.

4. How do we collect your personal information?

The personal information we collect about you comes from the application forms, any documents we ask you to complete during the onboarding process or other documents you submit to us and your interactions with us and others during the course of your employment with us.

In some cases, we will also collect personal information indirectly from third parties, such as from recruitment agencies that we work with, other entities in the Adecco Group if you transferred to us from that Adecco entity, background check providers and other administration services providers, other employees in any complaints or disciplinary reports submitted about you, or from publicly available sources such as LinkedIn and Twitter in accordance with applicable law.

 

5. Do you have to give us the personal information we ask for?

The provision of your personal information is a requirement necessary to enter and/or maintain our contract with you. This means that you are obliged to provide your personal information to us.

If you do not provide your personal information to us, we will either not be able to conduct the employment relationship with you or, at least, you may not be able to perform the contract we have entered into with you (such as paying you or providing a benefit), participate in certain processes such as feedback or career development (which may also not be in line with your contract with us) or we may be prevented from complying with our legal obligations (such as to ensure the health and safety of our workers).

6. Do we use artificial intelligence?

Yes, we do use artificial intelligence (AI) at times. However, we do not use your personal information in any automated decision making (a decision made solely by the creation and application of technologies without any human intervention) or profiling (processing of personal information with a range of technologies that reduce human intervention to evaluate certain conditions about an individual) that produces a legal effect or similarly significant effect concerning you.

We use a range of technologies to analyse your data. In all cases, there is always human intervention in these processes, as we use these tools to support our expert human decision makers.

We use automated systems/processes with the conditions described in the previous paragraph to help our staff manage large volumes of data, like job offerings and profiles, and we might use AI (for instance machine- learning, logic- or knowledge based and statistical approaches) to provide you, and our clients, with the services you request from us (e.g. finding the projects with the best fitting conditions on both sides). While we do use AI systems, all decisions which may affect you are taken by our trained staff members. Accordingly, these AI systems do not have legal effect.

For example, when we are looking for new opportunities or projects for you, we can conduct a search of our lists of job offerings using machine- learning, logic- or knowledge based and statistical approaches which uses attributes such as your job title, availability, skillset, assessment scores and locations, to compile a shortlist which displays a list of job offerings that are most likely to fulfil your requirements.
