YOUR PRIVACY IS IMPORTANT TO THE AMBITIOUS GROUP. BY MEANS OF THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT, THE AMBITIOUS GROUP WISHES TO INFORM YOU OF ITS PRACTICES WITH RESPECT TO THE COLLECTION AND USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION (“PERSONAL DATA”).
WHO IS YOUR DATA CONTROLLER?
The Ambitious Group works with ten (10) brands, that each focus on a specific segment of the recruitment sector (the “Brands”):
Each Brand encompasses several legal entities, incorporated under various jurisdictions. For your convenience, whenever we refer to one of these Brands in our Privacy Statement, we mean all legal entities that form that Brand.
The parent company of all Brands is The Ambitious Group, legally represented as Livius B.V., a private company with limited liability incorporated under the laws of the Netherlands, having its registered seat in Amsterdam and its office in (1072 SB) Amsterdam at Jozef Israëlskade 48 E, the Netherlands, registered with the commercial register of the Dutch Chamber of Commerce under number 86331787.
Why and how your Personal Data is processed, is ultimately determined by The Ambitious Group B.V. Therefore, we consider The Ambitious Group B.V. to be the sole data controller with respect to your Personal Data. For the remainder of this Privacy Statement, we will refer to The Ambitious Group B.V. as “TAG”.
If you have any questions regarding this Privacy Statement, or if you wish to exercise any rights under this Privacy Statement, you can contact the Data Protection Officer of TAG by e-mail at email@example.com or by phone at +31 (0)20 570 8128.
TO WHOM DOES THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT APPLY?
This Privacy Statement applies to everyone for whom TAG processes Personal Data, for example:
WHEN DOES TAG COLLECT YOUR PESONAL DATA?
TAG may collect your Personal Data:

TAG may collect the following Personal Data:
ON WHAT LEGAL GROUNDS DOES TAG PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
To process your Personal Data as described above, TAG relies on the following legal bases:
WHY DOES TAG PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
TAG processes your Personal Data for different purposes. Please find below the specific processing purposes, linked to the specific Personal Data that is collected in that respect (indicated by a letter corresponding with the section “What Kind of Personal Data Does TAG Collect?”) and the specific legal ground(s) therefore (indicated by a number corresponding with the section “On What Legal Grounds Does TAG Process Your Personal Data?”).
Each Brand uses aggregated information to analyze employment trends in various industries, for example the aggregate salary for certain job (categories). Such aggregated information cannot be used to identify an individual and, as such, does not qualify as personal data.
WITH WHOM CAN TAG SHARE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
TAG only shares your Personal Data to the extent (i) such is necessary for the provision of its services to you; or (ii) such is necessary to (legally) protect its legitimate interests in compliance with applicable law; or (iii) required by law.
TAG shares your Personal Data with the Brands of TAG in the following manner. To increase the chance of a match between you and a suitable job, TAG has created Brands dedicated to specific sectors. Therefore, if you apply for a Brand, your Personal Data is stored in the database of that Brand. However, it is possible that vacancies available at other Brands provide an equally suitable or even better match with your profile. For that reason, the databases of each Brand are accessible to employees of other Brands. TAG’s employees are instructed to only source the databases of other Brands in case of ‘cross Brand vacancies’: vacancies that fit the profile of more than one Brand.
TAG may also share your Personal Data with companies and/or organizations that engaged TAG or one of its Brands to fulfil vacancies on their behalf. TAG will only share your Personal Data with companies and/or organizations of which TAG knows, or has received confirmation that, or may reasonably expect that such company and/or organization will only process your Personal Data in accordance with applicable law. Upon receipt of your Personal Data, that company and/or organization becomes (joint) data controller of your Personal Data, as such organization determines the purpose and means of its processing.
Furthermore, TAG may share your Personal Data with other third parties, whom will process it on behalf of TAG for the purposes stated above. Such third parties include, but are not limited to, IT service providers, survey service providers, data hosting providers and custodians. TAG will not share your Personal Data with these third parties unless they have provided written assurances that the Personal Data shared will be protected in accordance with the provisions of this notice. Third parties will only be permitted to process your Personal Data for specified purposes and under our instructions.
In order for TAG to provide its services, it may be necessary to transfer your Personal Data to a recipient in a country outside the European Economic Area. Where Personal Data is transferred out of the European Economic Area, and where this is to an organization, Brand, vendor or other third party in a country that is not subject to an adequacy decision by the European Commission, Personal Data shall -in all cases- be adequately protected under appropriate safeguards such as European Commission approved standard contractual clauses, an appropriate Privacy Shield certification or a third party’s Processor Binding Corporate Rules. TAG is happy to provide you with more detailed information upon request.
WHAT IS THE TAG RETENTION POLICY?
Our business is recruiting. If you found your job through TAG at one point in your career, you may want to do so again at a later stage; even if you are not actively seeking a new job. Functioning as a career coach, TAG considers it unpractical to delete your Personal Data from the database of a Brand after a given amount of time without you having asked us to do so. The next vacancy TAG sends you may very well be your dream job! However, as removing your Personal Data from our database may not always be on the top of your mind, TAG will periodically send you a reminder about your Personal Data and the option of it being removed. In any case, TAG will remove your Personal Data from its database once you have reached the age of sixty-eight (68).
The Personal Data that is not included in our database, will be retained for as long as necessary to perform the purposes of processing as stated in this Privacy Statement. Each department within TAG is familiar with the retention policies and shall periodically review the Personal Data to ensure that the applicable retention periods are complied with.
WHICH TECHNICAL AND ORGANISATIONAL SECURITY MEASURES ARE IN PLACE?
In accordance with applicable data protection legislation, in particular the GDPR, TAG observes adequate procedures to prevent loss or any form of unlawful processing of your Personal Data. TAG uses appropriate business systems and procedures to protect and safeguard the Personal Data. TAG also uses security procedures and technical and physical restrictions for accessing and using the Personal Data on our servers. Only authorized personnel are permitted to access Personal Data in the course of their work.
TAG has implemented (at least) the following security measures across its organization:
WHAT ARE YOUR RIGHTS?
In accordance with applicable data protection legislation, especially Art. 15 through 21 GDPR, you have several rights regarding your Personal Data and the processing thereof. You have the right to (ask us to) correct, supplement, delete or block your Personal Data for convenience, if it is incomplete, incorrect or is being processed in contravention of this Privacy Statement or any statutory provision. You also have the right to request TAG to inform you of any Personal Data it holds relating to you. Furthermore, you have the right to receive your Personal Data, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit that Personal Data to another controller.
If you have any requests regarding your rights, or if you wish to exercise your rights, please contact TAG and/or its Data Protection Officer using the contact details provided at the top of this Privacy Statement. Please note that under certain circumstances, TAG’s statutory obligations or legitimate interests may take precedence over your rights as described in this section. For instance, in line with the GDPR and applicable member state data privacy laws, there can be statutory, contractual or other legal retention obligations of TAG for certain Personal Data which release us from our obligation to delete your Personal Data under certain circumstances. If this is the case, and if, as a result thereof, TAG cannot (fully) comply with your request, TAG will inform you thereof. Please also note that certain requests may affect our provision of services to you, your access thereto or may result in TAG not being to provide you with services at all.
CONSENT AND WITHDRAWAL OF CONSENT
You are entitled to withdraw your consent at any time by giving us written notice. Upon receipt of such a notice, TAG will -without undue delay- stop processing your Personal Data to the extent possible by law. If you would like to unsubscribe from group emails, please click here or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to delete your personal data, please send an email with the request to email@example.com.
