The EU (European Union) has implemented GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) on May 25, 2018, for regulations regarding new data privacy and protection. It summarises the company’s main responsibilities with the motive of ensuring that data of private individuals is processed only for particular purposes and transparently.

We assist our clients to get an automated evaluation of the candidates with the help of our assessment platform. As per GDPR, we act as a Data Processor and our clients act as Data Controllers. As a Data Processor, the entire information of the candidate which we collect will be securely handled through appropriate data protection. According to GDPR's regulation in Article 32, we will make sure that there will be an incident response plan to handle an unexpected incident that can put the personal information of candidates at risk.
As a Data Processor, we need candidates to use their login id for accessing our tests as well as we allow our clients to get the additional information such as location, gender, resume information, name, education, and many more. The entire information of the candidate's profile which is requested by our client for collection will come under GDPR purview.
As per the GDPR’s Article 5, personal data of any individual can be gathered for specified legitimate and explicit reasons but not further processed in a way which is not compatible with transparency, lawfulness, and fairness.
