1. Data Controller
2. Personal Data processed
As you use the Website, we inform you that e-shock may collect and process information related to you as an individual and which allows you to be identified (either directly, or together with additional information), or which is related to other individuals (“Personal Data”), such as your name, an identification number, an online ID or one or more characteristic elements of your physical, physiological, mental, economic, cultural or social identity.
Personal Data which may be processed by e-Shock through the Website are as follows:
a. Browsing Data
The Website’s operation, as is standard with any website on the Internet, involves the use of computer systems and software procedures, which collect information about the Website’s users as part of their routine operation. While e-Shock does not collect this information in order to link it to specific users, it is still possible to identify those users either directly via that information, or by using other information collected – as such, this information is also considered Personal Data.
This information includes several parameters related to your operating system and IT environment, including your IP address, location (country), the domain names of your computer, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of resources you request on the Website, the time of requests made, the method used to submit requests to the server, the dimensions of the file obtained in response to a request, the numerical code indicating the status of the response sent by the server (successful, error, etc.), and so on.
These data are used exclusively to compile anonymous, statistical information on the use of the Website, as well as to ensure its correct operation and identify any faults and/or abuse of the Website – the data is deleted immediately after processing, unless it must be used to identify responsible parties in the event of cybercrime committed which harms the Website or third parties.
b. Special categories of Personal Data
In the "Work with Us" section of the Website, you are allowed to submit Personal Data which may fall under the category of Personal Data referred to in Art. 9 of the Regulation – i.e. “[...] data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, and the processing of genetic data, biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person, data concerning health or data concerning a natural person's sex life or sexual orientation”.
While this should not prevent you from submitting your CV for a job application through the Website, e-Shock asks that you do not disclose any such types of Personal Data, unless you consider this to be strictly necessary. Indeed e-Shock remind you that if you disclose such special categories of Personal Data in absence of an explicit consent to process them, e-Shock may not in any case be held liable and cannot receive complaints in this regard because in such case the processing is permitted as it is based on the fact that you have publicly disclosed this information, according to Art. 9(1)(e) of the Regulation.
In any case, e-Shock would stress the importance of providing your explicit consent to process this sort of Personal Data, if you decide, nonetheless, to share it.
Please note that, for purposes of selection of an applicant to a certain position, e-Shock may decide to analyse the professional social media profiles which you make freely available on the Internet (e.g. LinkedIn).
c. Data provided voluntarily by the data subject
When using some of the Website’s Services (e.g., when you apply for a job position in the "Work with Us" section), you are allowed to submit Personal Data related to other persons.
In any situation where you decide to share Personal Data related to other persons through the Website, you will be considered as an independent data controller regarding that Personal Data and must assume all inherent legal obligations and responsibilities. This means that you must also make sure that you have these third parties’ consent to their Personal Data being used in this manner before providing them to e-Shock, or another appropriate legal basis which may allow for lawful processing of this information.
To this end, you must fully indemnify e-Shock against any complaints, claims or demands for compensation for damages which may arise from the processing of this Personal Data, initiated by the third parties whose information is processed via the Website by your initiative.
d. Cookies, definitions, characteristics and application of the legislation
3. Purpose of the processing

4. Legal basis and mandatory / discretionary nature of the processing
e-Shock’s legal bases to process your personal data, according to the purposes identified in Section 3, are as follows:

It is not mandatory for you to give e-Shock your Personal Data for these purposes; however, if you do not, e-Shock will not be able to to answer any requests or assess any CVs you may submit.
Specifically regarding Section 3(b), in particular as to e-Shock’s analysis of professional social media profiles which you make freely available on the Internet, e-Shock relies on Art. 6(1)(f) of the Regulation – i.e., the necessity of the processing for the purposes of e-Shock’s legitimate interest in verifying whether there are any risks related to the candidate’s suitability for a given open position.
Section 3(c): processing for this purpose is necessary for e-Shock to comply with its legal obligations and, therefore, the applicable legal basis is the necessity of the processing for compliance with the data controller’s legal obligations – Art. 6(1)(c) of the Regulation.
