If we have your consent, we may also use your personal data to provide you with marketing messages about other products and services we provide which may be of interest to you.
Also, we may provide various third parties with anonymous aggregate information about our users (for example, we may inform them that 200 women aged under 30 have been seniors in Java on any given information). This data will not identify you as an individual.
Our legal basis for processing your data
The legal grounds for processing your personal data are as follows:
- It is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests, except where our interests are overridden by the interests, rights, or freedoms of affected individuals (such as you). To determine this, we shall consider a number of factors, such as what your expectations are about the processing of the data, the nature of the data, and the impact of the processing on you.
- In some cases, your consent (such as where we seek your consent to send you details of our products and services by email).
- It may be necessary for us to undertake processing in order to comply with mandatory legal obligations to which we are subject under EU or Romanian law.
Disclosure of your information
We may disclose some or all of the data we collect from you when you download or use Slashscore to the following third parties:
- Category of data Submitted Information.
- Social Information Recipient Recruiters’ users of Slashscore.
We may disclose your personal information to any member of our group, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company, and its subsidiaries.
We may disclose your personal information to third parties:
- In the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets.
- If Slashscore or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by it about its customers will be one of the transferred assets.

How long will we retain your data?
We will not retain your personal data for longer than is necessary for relation to the purposes for which the data was collected or otherwise processed. The criteria we use for determining this period data will be any legal or regulatory requirements, statutory retention periods, or guidance provided by regulatory bodies such as the Information Commissioners Office. For example, we delete any personally identifying Log Data when you disable your Slashscore account or 2 years after your last use of Slashscore. We use this 2 year period because in our experience users may wish to retain an active Slashscore registration to access information derived from the Services when they are searching for a partnership with a recruiter.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to or through Slashscore or the Services; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.
To assist us in providing an effective networking service, in addition to the data that you provide to us if you register, we may also obtain data from your usage of Slashscore to help us understand what you might be interested in, or who you might be interested in connecting with. This ‘matching’ activity is powered by a machine learning system in our software which makes calculations about a potential dream job. There’s no consequence for you of this matching other than hopefully refining and improving what we suggest to you in Slashscore.
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. If you are using a third-party-branded version of the App, this includes disclosure to the owner of, or companies doing business under that brand. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us at [email protected].

Transfers of data outside Europe

If we transfer your information outside of the EU in this way, we will take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this Policy.
