HR Data Processing Charter 

Keyrus Group 

Hereafter referred to as the “Charter” 

As a player in the context of digital transformation, the Keyrus Group is involved in the construction of an innovative, virtuous, responsible and transparent work environment. 

We position ourselves in order to set up good practices when processing your personal data within the Keyrus Group, both with regard to our Employees and our Candidates.

As stated in the preamble herein, the Keyrus Group makes every effort to permanently comply with the essential principles of the GDPR and to assure all its Employees and Candidates that the personal Data collected are processed in a legal, fair and transparent manner. 

The personal Data are collected for specific, express and legitimate purposes and the Keyrus Group undertakes not to process them for purposes which are incompatible with these objectives.

As part of recruitment procedures, some personal Data may be obtained by a source other than the Data subject, specifically employment sites such as Monster or APEC, and also from social networks such as LinkedIn. 

If some of your personal Data have been processed by such companies, please refer to their data management policies. The Keyrus Group cannot be held responsible for any breach of the Regulations in force by one of these companies.

Working within the Keyrus Group, you will use its IT resources (platforms, Company Social Networks, applications, software, etc.) on a daily basis.

It is the Employee’s responsibility to read these documents and to implement the obligations incumbent upon them as a result therefrom. 

For specific Processing, particularly in relation to security (video surveillance, badges, etc.), the use of an IT resource made available to the Employee or individual supply of services and equipment (hardware, software, badges, cars, etc.), Employees shall receive specific information informing them about the way in which their personal Data will be processed.
