5. Processing of Personal Data
5.1 In the performance of their contractual obligations and in discharging their obligations under the agreement, the Client and Jobrapido shall act, each within their sphere of competence, in the capacity as independent Data Controllers under Regulation EU 2016/679 (“Regulation”), under Legislative Decree 196/2003, as amended (“Privacy Code”) and under the provisions issued by the Italian Privacy Supervisory Authority (“Supervisory Authority”).

The Client undertakes, by way of example and not limitation, (i) to adopt the appropriate security measures provided for under the Regulation and under any applicable legislation; (ii) provide suitable information to data subjects and request their free, specific, express, and verifiable consent, in the cases and within the terms of the Regulation or the Privacy Code; (iii) promptly address the requests submitted by the data subjects, under Articles 15 to 21 of the Regulation, and the questions or requests issued by any competent authority, including by collaborating with Jobrapido in case they should concern processing operations under the competence of both; (iv) process the data in compliance with the principles of lawfulness, proportionality, and necessity provided for in the Regulation and in the Privacy Code.
6. Privacy Notice
6.1 Under Article 13 of the Regulation, Jobrapido processes the Client’s personal data for the following purposes: (a) purposes connected or instrumental to the performance of the Agreement; (b) administrative and accounting purposes (e.g., organisational, financial, internal control purposes, etc.) including checking solvency by accessing public lists and/or authorised providers; (c) protecting the rights and legitimate interests of Jobrapido or third parties; (d) providing information on products and services offered by Jobrapido similar to those under this Agreement, sent via e-mail.

6.2 The legal basis for processing the Client’s personal data for the purposes under letters (a) and (d) is represented by the stipulation and performance of the Agreement and by the applicable provisions of law, and the provision of said data by the Client is required, and the Client’s failure to provide said data makes it impossible to properly perform the Agreement. As to the purposes under letters (b), (c), and (d), the legal ground for processing the Client’s data is the legitimate interest of Jobrapido and/or third parties: in these cases, though provision of data by the Client is not mandatory under the law, it is still required as the data are strictly connected to managing the contractual relationship, and the Client’s refusal to provide such data may make it impossible for the Agreement to be performed. Furthermore, with the Client’s consent expressed at the foot of the Agreement, Jobrapido may process the Client’s data for marketing purposes, as expressed under letter (e), such as, by way of example, communications containing information on the services offered by Jobrapido or by its commercial partners, invitations to events, market surveys, either via automated means (e.g., e-mail or fax) or non-automated means (e.g., phone, paper mail). The legal basis of such processing is represented by the free and optional consent which may be granted by the Client at the foot of the document and the refusal to provide this consent will only prevent the Client from receiving the above-mentioned communications.
6.3 For the above-illustrated purposes, the data may be communicated to the following recipients: (i) persons, companies, associations or firms providing advisory and assistance services to Jobrapido; (ii) banks and credit institutions and insurance companies; (iii) affiliated companies, companies within the same corporate group as Jobrapido. The list of recipients, Data Controllers or Processors to whom the data may be communicated is available on request. The Client’s data will be stored including after termination, for any cause whatsoever, of the Agreement, in order to discharge any obligation connected to or arising out of the termination of the Agreement, including those connected to legal obligations and to the limitation periods provided for such purposes by the law. Please also know that the data may be stored for longer periods as compared to the periods expressed in this paragraph for statistical and analysis purposes, using aggregated and anonymous data. The Client may exercise, at any time and sending a written request using Jobrapido’s contact information, the rights provided under Articles 15-22 of the Regulation, where applicable (e.g., right to rectification, right to be forgotten, restriction of processing, data portability), and the right to lodge a complaint with the Italian Privacy Supervisory Authority (www.garanteprivacy.it).
