Talent Jam and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
Talent Jam is committed to helping our users understand the rights and obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which took effect on May 25, 2018.
We have introduced tools and processes to ensure our compliance with requirements imposed by the GDPR and to help our customers comply as well.
To learn more about our GDPR compliance, please read our GDPR Policy.
Without our users’ data, Talent Jam would not be able to function. That’s why we take the privacy of our users’ data very seriously and we have set a privacy protection policy in place that is robust, secure, and is in compliance with all applicable regulations. Below you will find more information on the types of data we collect and how we use it.
Talent Jam is incorporated in the European Union and registered with the Bulgarian Commercial Registry under the unique identifying number 205273364.
Legal basis for processing your personal data
We are processing your personal data based on the following grounds:
- a contractual relationship
- with your explicit consent
- based on obligations by law
- to protect our legal interests
The following paragraphs contain detailed information on the ways we process your personal data based on these grounds.
For the execution of a contract or in the context of pre-contractual relations:
We process your personal data in order to fulfil our contractual and pre-contractual obligations to you.
Objectives of the personal data processing:
- identification purposes
- managing and execution of a query of yours, and fulfillments of a contract
- transferring commissions to your bank account once a commission is received
- providing customer service and support
- in order to notify you of updates on your profile in relation to the services we’re providing to you
- establishing and preventing unlawful actions or actions in contradiction to our Terms and Conditions.
Data we process based on these grounds:
Based on the contract concluded between Talent Jam and you, we process data about the type and content of the contractual relationship including:
- Personal contact details: address, e-mail, phone number
- Identification data: full name, identification number or passport number
- Credit or debit card information, bank account number or any other banking or payment information
- IP address used to visit our page
- Information about your actions and user activity on our webpage
The processing of the above-listed data is necessary in order to enter into a contract with you and to fulfil it. Without providing the aforementioned data, we wouldn’t be able to perform our contractual obligations.
Providing personal data to third-parties:
We are providing your personal data to third-parties with the main objective to provide quality and efficient service. We are not sharing your personal data to third-parties before we are sure that all technical and organisational measures have been taken in order to protect your data. We are striving to exercise strict control over the execution of this objective and we remain responsible for the confidentiality and safety of your personal data.
We are providing personal data to the following types of recipients (administrators of personal data):
- mail operators
- companies responsible for supporting equipment, software and hardware used when processing your personal data
- individuals and companies providing consulting services in various areas including accounting and legal services
Deletion of the data that’s collected based on this objective:
The personal data we collect based on a contractual ground is deleted 5 years after the termination of the contract regardless of the termination reason (expiration of the contract, revocation or for other reasons).
In the event that you contacted our Customer Support representatives and did not end up entering into a contract with Talent Jam, your personal data will be deleted within 6 months of the inquiry.
Fulfilment of statutory obligations
It is possible that the law requires Talent Jam to process your personal data. Some of these obligations arise from:
- Laws regarding measures against money laundering
- Consumer protection laws
- Personal data protection laws
- Taxation and accounting laws
- Obligations related to providing information to courts or third-parties during court proceedings
Deletion of data collected on these grounds:
The data that we collect based on an obligation by law is deleted when the obligation for collecting and storage is fulfilled or dropped. For example:
- Bulgarian national provisions for storing and processing accounting documents (such as receipts or invoices) require such documents to be saved for a period of 11 years
- Some courts and national authorities may require such data to be shared up to 5 years after it is collected.
If required by law, we can share your personal data with international and local authorities, courts, and other third-parties.
After giving your consent
We process your personal data on these grounds only after an explicit, unambiguous, and voluntary consent on your part. We will prevent any unfavourable consequences to you in the event you decline the personal data processing.
The consent is a separate permission to process your personal data and the purpose of the processing is specified therein, and it is not covered by the aims listed in this policy. If you provide the respective consent and until its withdrawal or until the termination of any and all contractual relationships with you, we prepare product/service offers which are appropriate for you.
Data we process on these grounds:
On these grounds, we process only the data for which you have given your explicit consent to Talent Jam. The particular data are specified for every individual case. The data usually consists of an e-mail address and a name.
Provision of data to third-parties:
For marketing purposes, Talent Jam may provide your personal data to Facebook, Google, or other similar entities.
In connection with the technical securing of our advertising activity, Talent Jam may provide the data to Microsoft, Mailchimp, Typeform, Unbounce, SendGrid, Mailchimp, Hotjar, Google Analytics or other providers of similar services.
The granted consents may be withdrawn at any time. The consent withdrawal has no impact on the fulfilment of contractual obligations. If you withdraw your consent for the personal data processing for any or all ways described above, Talent Jam will not use your personal data and information for the purposes set out above. The consent withdrawal does not affect the lawfulness of the processing based on a granted consent prior to its withdrawal. In order to withdraw the granted consent, you only need to use our website or simply use our contact information.
When is the data collected deleted on these grounds:
We delete the data collected on these grounds upon a request from you, or when 12 months have elapsed from the initial collection of the data. Prior to the expiration of the 12-month period, Talent Jam will send you information regarding the forthcoming deletion and give you the opportunity to provide your consent for 12 more months. If you decline or do not express an explicit consent, Talent Jam will delete your data and no longer send messages to you.
Anonymised data processing
Talent Jam processes user data for statistical purposes, which means for analyses for which the results are only summarised and, as a consequence, the data are anonymous.
The identification of a specific person of such information is impossible.
Your data may also be anonymised. The annonymisation represents an alternative to the deletion of the data. In the event of annonymisation, all personal and identifiable element(s) enabling user identification will be irreversibly deleted. There is no normative obligation for the deletion of anonymised data since they do not represent personal data.
How personal data is protected
For the purpose of ensuring adequate protection of the data of the company and of our clients, Talent Jam implements all necessary organisational and technical measures set out by the Law for Protection of Personal Data.
The company has set rules for prevention of misuse and security breaches and has designated a Data Protection Officer who supports the processes of protection and ensures the security of your data.
For the purpose of maximum security while processing, transmission, and storage of data, Talent Jam may use additional protection mechanisms, such as encryption, pseudonymisation, and others.
