GDPR – Data Collection
To comply with GDPR companies will need to state exactly how they will be collecting and processing candidate (data subject) data. With HireHive you can easily do that by setting up your data collection preferences.
There are two options when collecting candidate data:
- Legitimate Interest
Either option above will work for a hiring company that requires candidate data to process a job application. It is best to discuss your data collection basis with your legal team to see what best suits your company needs.
- If you choose Consent as your basis for collecting data you will need to add a ‘consent’ check box to your application form.
If you select the Consent option within HireHive this will automatically add a Consent check box for you.
