  1. When is this Privacy Statement applicable?

The Hup collects the personal data (“Personal Data”) that you (the “Data Subject”) provide and uses this to make you as fully aware as possible of our activities (“Service”).

This Privacy Statement applies to all the data collected and processed by The Hup from job applicants, customers, staff, clients and all users of its websites, apps and other services.

2. What do we mean by personal data?

The GDPR defines personal data as: all data concerning an identified or identifiable natural person. This means that the information is either directly about someone or can be traced back to that person. That it must concern a natural person means that the data of deceased persons or organisations do not constitute personal data.

There are many different types of personal data. The most common type being someone’s name and full address. But telephone numbers and postal codes with house numbers are also personal data. Sensitive information, such as someone’s race, religion or health status are also referred to as special personal data. These types of data are subject to additional protection by law.

3. What information does The Hup collect and process?

Personal data has to be stored and processed to be able to use the “Service” provided by The Hup. The personal data that The Hup stores and processes is obtained directly from the person concerned from a CV, for example, a personal meeting, or included in a contract with The Hup. But it may also be obtained indirectly, i.e. through automatically generated data from Google Analytics, Google Ads and LinkedIn Insight Tag. With both direct and indirect personal data collection, The Hup will explicitly ask for your consent for the processing and storage of your personal data. This data is necessary to conclude, administer and perform your contract with The Hup but will also be used in support of our marketing purposes. The precise type of personal data and the purposes for which it will be used by The Hup are set out in clauses 4 and 5, respectively, of this Privacy Statement.

Automatically generated data

The Hup collects automatically generated data about your browsing activity while using the Service. This information includes your IP address (the number which identifies your computer), the date on which the personal data was entered and “cookies”. Insofar as The Hup uses this data, it is always anonymised.


To provide its Service The Hup uses cookies which are stored on your computer by your browser. Cookies are little pieces of information which our server sends to your browser so that this information can be sent back to our server on your next visit. These tiny text files are stored on your computer’s hard disk or in its memory.  Cookies cannot damage either your computer or the files on your computer. The cookies store information (such as your PC settings, your preferences, as well as the tips and groups you have subscribed to) to facilitate your next use of the Service. Apart from your IP address, this information does not include your name or address, or any other personal data. To find out more about these functions, you can check your browser instructions or use its help function. If you want to use cookies, remember to log off after using a public computer.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers based in the United States. Google uses this information to track how you use the website, to compile reports on website activity for website operators and to offer other services related to website activity and internet use. Google may provide this information to third parties if Google is legally required to do so, or to the extent that these third parties process the data on Google’s behalf. Google will not combine your IP address with other data held by Google. You can refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings for this in your browser.

4. What will The Hup use the personal data for?

The Hup collects and processes the personal data that you (the “Data Subject”) provide:

  • To conclude, administer and perform your agreement with us and thus provide you with the Service;
  • Offering, maintaining and improving our websites and social media;
    • Providing information on and promoting our services;
    • Providing information on, organising and extending invitations for our activities;
    • Maintaining contact and answering your questions;
  • To provide your information to third parties on the basis of statutory obligations;
  • To modify and improve the Service;
  • To compile anonymised statistical data and to secure the Service;

To provide the Service The Hup uses cookies which are stored on your computer by your browser. Cookies are tiny pieces of information. You can find information about the use of cookies above.

The Hup uses automatically generated data for statistical purposes, as well as for security and to improve its website and Service. This data may be provided to third parties but will always be fully anonymised and not traceable to you personally (no Personal Data).

5. Consent for processing personal data

The Data Subject must give his or her explicit consent for The Hup to process their personal data. Article 4(11) of the GDPR defines the data subject’s right as: “any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her”.

6. Use by third parties

Without your explicit consent The Hup will not provide your personal data to third parties for direct marketing purposes (e.g. to send advertising). The Hup may provide your data to third parties to the extent that this is necessary to provide you with the Service and insofar as this data cannot be traced back to you personally (such as automatically generated information, not including your IP address). Finally, The Hup can supply your data to third parties if it is required to do so on the basis of statutory provisions, either further to legal action or in the event that this is necessary to protect its own rights.

7. Retention period

The Hup will not hold your personal data any longer than is legally permissible and necessary for the fulfilment of the purposes for which the data was collected and processed. How long certain data is stored depends on the nature of the data and the purposes for which it is processed. The retention period may therefore differ per goal.

8. Your rights

Under the GDPR you have the following rights concerning your personal data:

  • The right to withdraw your consent;
  • The right of data portability. The right to transfer Personal Data;
  • The right to be forgotten. The right to ‘have your data deleted’;
  • The right to access. The right to see the personal data we collect and process;
  • The right to rectification and completion when the personal data is incorrect, incomplete or not relevant.
  • The right to limit the processing of your personal data. That we retain personal data about you at your request even though we may not otherwise process it (any longer) or when it is in dispute;
  • The right pertaining to automated decision-making. The right under certain circumstances not to be subject to a decision which is purely based on an automated process without human intervention;
  • The right to object to the data processing;
  • The right to information on how The Hup processes your personal data. You can find this information in this Privacy Statement.

9. How does The Hup protect your Personal Data?

  • The Hup will handle your Personal Data in a proper and careful manner and, in conformity with the law, process it in accordance with the GDPR directive.
  • The Hup requires that you complete the data fields marked with an asterisk (*). It is not obligatory to enter the data requested where there is no asterisk (*).
  • The Hup will take appropriate technical and organisational measures to safeguard your personal data against loss or any form of unlawful processing.
  • The Hup shall not hold the personal data for any longer than is necessary.

10. Transfer within the EU

The level of data protection is the same within the EU. This is because the legislation of all EU member states has been brought into line with the European Data Protection Directive. The EU therefore forms one jurisdiction in terms of the protection of personal data. The organisation abroad only has to comply with the general requirements of the GDPR.

11. Transfer outside the EU

To the extent that personal data is transferred to third parties in accordance with this Privacy Statement, and these third parties are based outside the European Union, such transfer will only take place if that country can guarantee an adequate level of security or has been designated by the European Union as a safe third party. These countries will all be countries outside the EU with the exception of the countries in the European Economic Area (EEA).

12. Company transfer

It is possible that one or more parts or assets of The Hup are transferred to a third party or that The Hup merges with a third party. In such an event your personal data may also be transferred.

13. Can this Privacy Statement be amended?

This Privacy Statement may be amended. Such changes will be announced on the website.
