Privacy statement

Handling personal data of all people we work with carefully is important to us. We strive for a long term collaboration and have a high regard for the fact that you share your personal data with us. Your data is in good hands with us, we will treat them with care every day.

With this privacy statement, we would like to inform you about which personal data Mundialz processes for which purpose. We process personal data in the course of the performance of our service provision but also in relation to the use of our website. When processing personal data, we limit ourselves to the personal data required for the purposes for which it is processed.

We respect the privacy of our candidates, clients, business contacts and visitors to the website. Personal data is therefore handled and secured with the greatest possible care and processing takes place in accordance with the applicable privacy legislation.

Purposes of the processing of personal data

Mundialz is an international expats community and recruitment platform, we connect candidates and clients. Implementation of this service provision in a professional manner requires the processing of personal data of our candidates and clients. This covers issues such as sharing your contact information with other expats, processing your application and sharing your resume with our clients.

From a marketing purpose perspective we can use the collected personal data for the sending of information, invitations or announcements. For existing business contacts, this is done on the basis of the justified interest. In other cases, this is only done with express permission. It should be noted that it is always possible to request that such information be stopped from being sent. This can be done simply by using the unsubscribe link found at the bottom (in the footer) of our e-mails.

Use of personal data

For particular cases, to carry out our services we require specific personal data. The type of data we process is dependent on the type of service we carry out. Only the personal data required for the relevant service will be processed. For each situation, we will indicate to our clients and candidates which personal data is required or compulsory and what the (possible) consequences are if the data is not provided. In the performance of our work, the following data may be processed:

  • Name and address details
  • E-mail address and other contact details including telephone number
  • Birth details, age and gender
  • Position
  • Level of education
  • Citizen service number (BSN; only Dutch citizens)
  • Nationality
  • Identification details
  • Registration number
  • Financial details
  • Bank and payment details
  • Login details

To maintain business relationships, provide information about our service provision and provide information on online tools used by clients and candidates, we process the names, contact details and positions of the relevant persons who work at our business contacts.

In addition, Mundialz collects data about visitors to its website. This provides us with insight into information such as:

  • date, time and duration of the website visit
  • which pages the website visitor has viewed
  • the material the visitor has downloaded on the website
  • the used browser, the operating system and the service provider of the website visitor
  • the company name and address based on the IP address of the visitor
  • the place (municipality) where the visitor was located during their website visit
  • any (source) link used by the website visitor to arrive at our website

The listed data is anonymised; it is therefore not possible for Mundialz to identify a visitor to the website.

Mundialz only collects information traceable to actual persons that has been expressly made available by the relevant visitor to the website. This is the case if a visitor completes a contact form on the website, for example. This information can consist of the name, position, business address e-mail address, telephone number(s) and details in relation to the internet behaviour such as set out in this statement.

Analytical cookies

We use Google Analytics cookies for our web statistics. Google Analytics gives us information about how visitors use our website. This gives us insight into how we can improve our website. We have entered into a data processing agreement with Google. We have also set up our Google Analytics account in accordance with the ‘Google Analytics Privacy Friendly Setup Manual’ (drawn up by the Data Protection Authority). This means that the last octet of your IP address is masked, that the ‘data sharing’ option is disabled, and that we do not use any other Google services in conjunction with the Google Analytics cookies.
