Privacy and cookie policy

Jobbnorge ensures GDPR compliance through dedicated and systematic information security work, rooted in all parts of our organization. Here you can learn how we process personal data and how we use cookies in the solutions.

Privacy policy

Jobbnorge AS (“Jobbnorge” and “we”) are committed to the trust you put in us and how we treat your personal information. We are responsible for the processing of your user profile with us and accordingly, we are responsible that the information we have about you is used in accordance with Privacy Laws.

This privacy policy gives you information about how we use and protect your personal information and what rights you have. Personal information is all information that can be linked to you as an individual.

What personal information do we have about you?

Depending on what information you provide, this is typically the information we have about you:

User information. Information that you provide when you choose to create a profile on Jobbnorge’s recruitment portal, whether you are a job seeker or you create a profile on behalf of an employer. For job seekers, we typically have contact information, home address, login details, date of birth, resume, diplomas, certificates and which positions you are interested in. For company employees, we typically have contact information, login details and other information that the employee submits to the profile on behalf of the employer.

Information about website usage. Information we receive when you use our website, such as your device (e.g. mobile or PC), IP address, which pages you visit and what features you use there.

How we use the information

Here are the main objectives for which we use the information:

  • Create user profiles for job seekers. We use information to allow job seekers to create user profiles on our recruitment portal. For this purpose we use user information.
  • Create user profiles for employers. We use information to enable company employees to create user profiles on our recruitment portal. For this purpose we use user information.
  • Customer Service. We use information when you contact us, to provide service and manage your profile. For this purpose we use user information.
  • Sending Information: We use your contact information (e.g. e-mail address) to send you information related to your user profile, as well as notifications of new positions you have requested. For this purpose we use user information.
  • Security logging: We log all requests to the recruitment portal (with IP address) at the server level to be able to provide documentation for any security breaches. For this purpose, we use information about website usage.
  • To improve our website. We use information to customize our website to the technical equipment you use and improve your user experience on the Jobbnorge website. We may also use the information to customize the content of our website to what we think is of interest to you. The information is processed in an unidentified and aggregated form. Unidentified means that we cannot track the information we collect back to the individual user. For this purpose, we use information about website usage.

Statistics: We develop statistics and chart market trends to improve and further develop our products and services. As far as possible, we do this with anonymous information without knowing that the information is specifically linked to you. For this purpose, we use information about website usage. 

The legal basis for objectives 13 and 4 is to fulfil our agreement with you and our legitimate interest in providing customer service and information. The legal basis for objective 2 is our legitimate interest in providing employers’ user profiles in our portal. The legal basis for objective 5 are our legal obligations and our legitimate interest in maintaining the security of the recruitment portal. The legal basis for objectives 6 and 7 is our legitimate interest in improving and further developing our services.

Who we share personal information with

We will disclose your personal information to potential employers that you have applied to through Jobbnorge’s recruitment portal or if you have chosen to publish your CV for employers. These businesses are responsible for processing your personal information.

We share personal information with companies that provide technical and administrative services to us, such as IT providers. We have agreements with these to ensure your privacy. You can find our list of subcontractors here

We may disclose information in individual cases, for example to public authorities, in case of suspected offenses.

How long we store personal information

We store information about you only for as long as it is necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was obtained. This typically means that we delete:

User information when you terminate your profile or you have been inactive for more than 36 months.

Information on website usage within the last six months.

Communication within the last 3 years.

We will store information for as long as the law allows and where a special need arises, i.e. in case of complaints or claims directed against us or by us.
