General Data Protection Regulation
LiveHire was founded in 2011 on our core belief that people, and in particular candidates, always have control and transparency over their own information and how it is used. As a LiveHire user you always have full control over your own profile, the accuracy of your data, and who it is or isn’t shared with. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) contains the most significant changes to European data privacy legislation in the past 20 years. It is specifically designed to give European Union (EU) citizens more control over their data and it seeks to unify multiple existing privacy and security laws under one comprehensive law. Given our roots and core beliefs in people’s rights to data privacy, LiveHire is committed to compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
What is the GDPR?
The GDPR is Europe’s new framework for data protection laws. It gives residents of the European Union (EU) more control over how organisations collect, process, store, and share their personal data. The GDPR requires organiszations to undertake certain steps to ensure they are adequately protecting the personal data they collect or otherwise process, and mandates that companies protect and uphold privacy rights when the personal data of EU citizens are collected and stored. The GDPR aims to make data protection regulations more relevant, comprehensive, and unified.
Key principles of GDPR
- Evident Compliance: GDPR requires organisations to document and be able to show how they comply with data protection requirements. This means additional documentation of systems, processes, and procedures.
- Enhanced Individual Rights: Such as the following:
- Right to access: The right for individuals to obtain confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning them is being processed, where, and for what reason.
- Right to rectify inaccurate data: The individual has the right to request correction of inaccurate personal data.
- Right to be forgotten: The right for individuals to request erasure of their personal data, cease further dissemination of the data.
- Right to block the processing of personal data: The right for individuals to request to restrict or suppress the processing of personal data, also from third parties.
- Right to data portability: The right for individuals to receive the personal data concerning them, which they have previously provided.
