The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was adopted in April 2016 to reinforce data protection laws for all citizens within the European Union (EU). Since 25th May 2018, GDPR is now in full effect and impacts all businesses working with personal data from the EU. That means all of us who has or will have candidates from the EU in their hiring pipelines. We will all have to comply with GDPR fully. As the chosen applicant tracking system (ATS) for many international companies handling EU data, we have a clear stance when it comes to GDPR.
If you use GoHire’s Applicant Tracking System then you are seen as a Data Controller. As a Data Controller, you have the responsibility for the protection of the personal data of your applicants. With such responsibility comes the need to have full control over how your Applicant Tracking System processes personal data.
GoHire is seen as a Data Processor for the personal data of applicants that are processed with our Applicant Tracking System. Our mission is to make sure our users have all the tools required to shape their data processing as they see fit.
We have developed a special product roadmap that addressed all areas in GoHire impacted by GDPR. With the aid of our Data Security Officer and external law firms, we have outlined out a GDPR-tailored product roadmap that will assist our clients in achieving 100% compliance in their hiring activities.
