We will keep this information in our files for a maximum of 1 year after the application process has ended. After this year, your data will be deleted. Would you prefer Knab not to keep your details for one year after the end of the application process? You can let us know by sending an email to [email protected].

Provision to third parties

We sometimes use third parties to carry out the application process, such as recruitment or assessment agencies. They must also handle your data properly and carefully. We have clear agreements with them to ensure this. For example, they may only process your data to the extent necessary for the application process, they must keep your data secure, and they must comply with applicable laws and regulations.

Your questions and rights

Objecting to the processing of (certain) personal data You can object to the processing of your personal data by Knab. However, you cannot object to every processing of personal data. Certain personal data is collected on a legal basis and we therefore have to process it.

If you object, we will process your request within the legally required time limit.
Transfer of personal data You may ask us to transfer the personal data you have provided to us to another organisation. We will then transfer that personal data within the legally required time limit.
Deletion of personal data In certain circumstances, you may ask us to delete your personal data. If we process your personal data on the basis of a legal obligation or in order to perform the contract, we will not be able to comply with this request.
