The EOJD website is a platform for virtual (online) and on-site job fairs where employers can publish their company profiles and current job opportunities. Jobseekers can indicate their interest in specific job offers by making their user profile and CV visible for the employers they have selected. In virtual events, presentations can be streamed online and jobseekers, employers, and EURES staff can communicate with each other via live chats. Specific information regarding processing and protection of data submitted in the chats is provided in connection to the chat functionality.
Jobseekers and employers who register for a Job Day event will obtain a user account on the EOJD website for that specific event. Jobseekers can upload their personal profile and a CV to the EOJD website or request that a CV already published on the EURES portal becomes accessible from the EOJD website.
Employers registered on the EOJD website can only see the CVs and other information about a jobseekers if the jobseeker has indicated an interest in that particular employer.
Your data will be used for an automated decision-making, including profiling.
The modes of processing will be both automated processing and manual processing. About the automated processing a computer/machine will be used in online form/feedback but it does not include profiling.
Jobseeker: create an account, create a profile (with preferred options) upload their Cvs and apply directly for job offers. Possibility to schedule on-line or face to face interviews with employers. Online chat
Employer: create an account, participate into events, publish vacancies, get access to Cvs and organize their own events and interviews.

Access to your personal data is provided to ELA staff responsible for carrying out this processing operation and to authorised staff according to the “need to know” principle. Such staff abide by statutory, and when required, additional confidentiality agreements.

Information on jobseekers' CVs is made available, for display purposes, to EURES Members of the organising and co-organising countries and employers registered, verified by the external contractor acting on behalf of the controller. If these organisations reprocess the CV information obtained, this processing has to be in compliance with Regulation (EU) 2018/1725 and the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679), and they will be considered independent controllers.
Information on registered jobseekers or employers will not be disclosed to anybody external to the EURES network.
The data stored will not be used for sending out any kind of information to the registered users unless they have explicitly agreed to this apart from messages relating directly to the service, its availability and development, and surveys and the like conducted for evaluation purposes.
Only registered and accepted employers in which a jobseeker has explicitly indicated an interest - through marking an interest in one or several of this employer's job vacancies, or providing the jobseeker's registration code to the employer via the chat tool can view that jobseeker's CV.
The controller will transfer your personal data to the following recipients in a third country or to an international organisation in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2018/1725: We will transfer personal data to EEA countries and Switzerland . According to 2000/518/EC: Commission Decision of 26 July 2000 pursuant to Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on the adequate protection of personal data provided in Switzerland (notified under document number C(2000) 2304), Switzerland has an adequate level of protection of personal data.
