2.1.1 You have given your explicit consent

2.2 How it is collected?

The recruitment procedure and associated data processing starts at Loop when:

· you apply for a specific position

· you apply spontaneously;

· a third party recommends you (e.g. recruitment office).

Loop uses various channels to find the suitable person for a vacancy. This can be via our own website, via emails, but also via third parties such as social media (LinkedIn, Facebook), job websites/job boards, job fairs or recruitment and selection offices. For specific positions or profiles, Loop may engage a specialized office to find a suitable candidate.

If your CV is processed by these third parties, it is advisable to read their general terms and conditions and privacy policy to ascertain how they handle your personal data. Loop cannot be held responsible for the way these third parties handle your personal data, nor for the content published on their websites.

Loop requests that you check the accuracy and completeness of your data and contact us if any changes have occurred or if you are no longer interested in a job with Loop during the selection process.

2.2 Specific processing during the selection procedure

In the first stage of the selection procedure, Loop analyses your CV to check whether it meets the requirements of the job.

Applicants who do not meet the requirements and whose CV will not be taken into further consideration, will be informed accordingly. Personal data and CVs of applicants who are not

retained, will be kept by Loop in a recruitment database where you will have the choice whether to accept it or not.

In the next phase, depending on the position and your profile, a number of tests may be carried out, as Loop finds it important to conduct an objective recruitment and selection procedure.

These tests, which will not last longer than necessary to test the applicant's competence, may consist of:

· practical case

· personality test

· test of technical knowledge

· capacity tests (abstract and/or numerical and/or verbal)

These tests will always form an objective guide in the selection procedure and will always be accompanied by a professional assessment and comprehensive analysis by Loop. Loop can use an external assessment office to carry out these tests.

Loop or the assessment office will explain the results of these tests and/or trials orally or in writing, whereby you will always have the opportunity to express your comments and experiences.

Candidates who meet the requirements of the position, but whose test results are unsatisfactory, will be informed of this within a reasonable time. The data of applicants who are not further qualified will be kept in a recruitment database where you will have the choice whether to accept it or not.
