Easy GDPR compliance for recruitment

Recruitee is the first recruitment software that offers dedicated features aimed to help you comply with the GDPR.

What is GDPR?

On the 25th of May 2018 the European Union will take a massive step towards better data protection by introducing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). GDPR will apply to organizations worldwide and non-compliance will result in massive fines of up to € 20.000.000 or 4% of your annual turnover.

Your role vs. Recruitee's role

If you use Recruitee’s ATS 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 ATS processes personal data.
We are seen as a Data Processor for the personal data of applicants that is processed with our ATS. Our mission is to make sure our customers have all the tools required to shape their data processing as they see fit. Our customers stay in control, we handle the technical side.
