  1. Personal Data processed

The Website’s operation, as is standard with any website on the Internet, involves the use of computer systems and software procedures, which collect information about the Website’s users as part of their routine operation. While Sofidel does not collect this information in order to link it to specific users, it is still possible to identify those users either directly via that information, or by using other information collected – as such, this information is also considered Personal Data.

This information includes several parameters related to your operating system and IT environment, including your IP address, location (country), the domain names of your computer, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of resources you request on the Website, the time of requests made, the method used to submit requests to the server, the dimensions of the file obtained in response to a request, the numerical code indicating the status of the response sent by the server (successful, error, etc.), and so on.

These data are used exclusively to compile anonymous, statistical information on the use of the Website, as well as to ensure its correct operation and identify any faults and/or abuse of the Website – the data is deleted immediately after processing, unless it must be used to identify responsible parties in the event of cybercrime committed which harms the Website or third parties, in which case information on web contacts may be kept for a period of 7 (seven) days.

While this should not prevent you from submitting your CV for a job application through the Website, Sofidel asks that you do not disclose any such types of Personal Data, unless you consider this to be strictly necessary. Indeed Sofidel remind you that if you disclose such special categories of Personal Data in absence of an explicit consent to process them, Sofidel may not in any case be held liable and cannot receive complaints in this regard because in such case the processing is permitted as it is based on the fact that you have publicly disclosed this information, according to Art. 9(1)(e) of the Regulation.

In any case, Sofidel would stress the importance of providing your explicit consent to process this sort of Personal Data, if you decide, nonetheless, to share it.
