Legal basis for the processing of personal data
We have different legal bases for the processing of personal data. A significant part of your personal data that we process is processed because it is necessary for us to conclude an agreement with you and our customers.

In addition, we process your personal data on the legal basis of the legitimate interest of OTTO, which is to answer your question / message or to prepare an offer at your request.


If we receive a separate consent from you, we will be able to process your data for the purpose of:

  • contacting you, inter alia for legitimate marketing purposes, through available channels of communication, in particular e-mail and telephone,
  • sending commercial information by electronic means of communication;
  • conducting the recruitment process.

You may withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time by sending an application to the following address


What (personal) data do we collect about you?
When processing data, we are guided by the principle of minimalism, i.e. we process only those data that are necessary for the purpose of processing. In addition, we collect personal information that we need to provide our services. Some of this data is necessary for you to be able to use our services as well. In addition, we collect additional (personal) data so that we can adapt our services to your specific skills and wishes, or so that we can meet the specific requirements of our Clients. You are responsible for the correctness and usefulness of the transmitted data.

We collect, among other things, the following data and documents containing personal data:

  1. Personal data (name, surname, address, place of residence)
  2. E-mail address;
  3. Date of birth:
  4. Telephone number:
  5. E-mail address:
  6. Curriculum vitae and cover letter, often containing, among other things, data on education and experience.
  7. In the case of a targeted letter of motivation: the position you are applying for.


If you would like to contact us via this website, this includes your name, e-mail address, telephone number, company and country.

In addition, a person interested in our offers can send us their data such as: name, surname, telephone number and e-mail address. These data are used to contact and to present job offers.


How long the personal data collected by us are stored on the Website?
We use retention periods in accordance with the applicable legal provisions for the personal data that you have provided to us in the context of employment agency services.

In the case of the recruitment process, the data are processed for the duration of the recruitment process. After the recruitment process is finished, we delete the data. We will be able to process this data for 12 months after you have given us your separate consent.

However, data that we process for the purposes of direct marketing of our products and for the purpose of sending commercial information will be stored until you object to their processing. To do so, you must withdraw your consent. Otherwise, we may decide to discontinue the processing of such data if we determine that the consent received from you has become outdated. You can withdraw your consent by sending an e-mail to the following address:


How is the personal data collected by us on the Website protected?
OTTO prioritises your privacy. For this reason, we take various measures to avoid loss, theft or other unlawful use of your personal data. Therefore, if necessary, we work with encrypted messages and secure connections. In addition, we are taking the necessary measures for the physical and logical security of access.



Who receives your personal data?
OTTO receives your personal data. Under no circumstances will OTTO sell your personal data to third parties. In addition, OTTO will only pass on your personal data to third parties if this is required by contract or by law, or if this is necessary for the provision of our services or to draw attention to the fact of their provision, in order to present you to our clients, be able to submit offers and inform you about our services.

In addition, we may only share your data if you have given your consent or to authorised entities, if necessary. In addition, your data will be accessible to our employees, for whom it is necessary to perform their daily duties, and to subcontractors, i.e. entities that we use to process your data.


Do we transfer your data to countries outside the European Economic Area?
As a rule, we do not transfer data outside the European Economic Area; in some cases related to recruitment, it may happen that data are transferred outside the European Economic Area. If this is the case, OTTO guarantees that the data will be protected in the same way as in the EU. These guarantees arise in particular from the obligation to use standard contractual clauses adopted by the Commission (EU) or to participate in the ‘Privacy shield’ programme established by Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2016/1250 of 12 July 2016 on the adequacy of the protection provided by the EU-US Privacy shield.


Do we process your personal data automatically (including through profiling) in a way that affects your rights?

If your objection is justified and we have no other legal basis for the processing of your personal data, we will delete your data which you have objected to;
