3. Purpose of data processing

3.1 We process your personal data, as described in Clause 2.1 of this Policy, for the purpose of your application, to contact you and to maintain contact, to assess your suitability for a position within Ace & Tate, to answer your questions and/or to provide you with requested information. Personal data may also be processed by us to verify the information you provide and, if required for a specific position, to conduct antecedent checks and gather feedback from references.

3.2 We use automatically generated data, as described in Section 2.2 of this Policy, and your personal data, as described in Section 2.1 of this Policy, to perform aggregate analyses for internal research, statistical and strategic purposes. This aggregate information does not identify you. We use the aggregate information to optimise our Website and to learn more about the use of our Website in order to improve it.

4. Retention of data

4.1 If you are not selected for the position for which you applied, we like to retain your personal data for one (1) year after rejection, but only if we have received your prior consent for this.

4.2 If you do not give your consent, we will retain your personal data for four (4) weeks after you are not selected, you withdrew or you were removed from the job. If you apply for another position during that period, your profile and all related applications will be retained from the date of your last application.

Upon signing your employment contract, you will be informed in more detail about what additional personal data we need, why we need it, how we will handle it, how long it will be kept and what your rights are.

4.4 If you request us to delete your personal data (by contacting us as described in Article 7 of this Policy), all your personal data will be deleted. We will not delete your personal data if we are required by law or for internal use to retain such data.

5. Data Protection

All processed personal data is treated confidentially. We will therefore take appropriate technical and organisational measures to secure and protect personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access or against any other processing of such personal data. Given the nature of the data and the risks involved in the processing of the data, these measures ensure an appropriate level of security.

6. Sharing of Personal Data

6.1 Without prejudice to Article 6.2 of this Policy, we do not disclose personal information or personal data to third parties without your express consent, unless we are required to do so by law or by order of the competent supervisory authority.

6.2 We will only share personal data with third parties that are involved in the process of your application. These third parties will process your personal data according to our instructions and their use will be under our responsibility. The personal data made available will be stored and if necessary, data processing agreements will be concluded with these third parties.

6.3 A third party that in any case will be involved in the execution of your application is Smartrecruiters, Inc. (https://www.smartrecruiters.com/). SmartRecruiters provides Ace & Tate with a recruitment platform. Your personal data will be processed by SmartRecruiters as soon as you apply for a job. For example because Ace & Tate enters your personal data on the recruitment platform or because you enter your personal data on the Website (after which those personal data will automatically be processed by SmartRecruiters).

7. Your rights

7.1 You can have a look at your personal data and change it if needed in the candidate portal of SmartRecruiters. You can also request erasure in the candidate portal. The administrator will review the request and will delete your profile.

You also have the right to send a request to our HR Team to have insight into, receive, transmit, correct or delete your personal data, or to withdraw your consent for the processing of your personal data altogether. For all such requests, please contact us at recruitment@aceandtate.com. We will process your request in accordance with the GDPR. We will also respond to you without undue delay, at least within one (1) month of receiving your written request.

7.2 Additionally, you have the right to file a complaint with the relevant personal data protection authority.

7.3 Finally, you also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data by us at any time. In the event of such an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we demonstrate that: (i) we have compelling legitimate grounds for processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms; or (ii) processing is necessary to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim(s). We will send you a response to your objection without undue delay, at least within one (1) month of receiving your written request.

8. Cross-border Transfer

8.1 Since Ace & Tate is an international company that operates worldwide, your personal data may be stored and processed in any country where we operate. By using our Website or by giving us your consent (if required by law), you agree that your data may be processed in countries other than your country of residence. Other countries may have different data protection laws than your country of residence. We have taken appropriate contractual and other measures to protect your personal data when it is transferred to our subsidiaries or to third parties in other countries.

8.2 Some countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) are recognized by the European Commission as having an adequate level of data protection under the EEA standards (the full list of these countries is available here http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/international-transfers/adequacy/index_en.html). For transfers from the EEA to countries that the European Commission deems to have insufficient protection, we have ensured that adequate measures are in place, including ensuring that the recipient is bound by the EU Standard Data Protection Clauses (i.e. EU Standard Contractual Clauses) or an EU-approved code of conduct or certification to protect your personal data. You may obtain a copy of these measures by contacting our HR Team (recruitment@aceandtate.com) as explained in Article 7 of this Policy.

9. Revisions to this Applicant Privacy Policy

Please note that this Policy may be revised from time to time. Any revision to the Policy will be posted on our Website, where the most current version will be available at all times. We encourage you to check our Website and the Policy on a regular basis. If we make an amendment to this Policy that would affect your privacy rights, we will either seek your consent for the amendment or continue to honour our prior Policy for information that we processed when this prior Policy was in effect. The last revision took place in April 2022.

One of the kindest things we can do for our planet is to make the most of what we already have. For us, that means extending the life of our frames by giving our glasses another chance to shine with Reframe. Great quality eyewear at a lower environmental cost.
