Security Measurements

We act according to the General Data Protection Regulation and have taken security measures to provide you with a safe environment.
  1. We have installed a SSL certificate to provide a safe, 256-bits encrypted connection.
  2. We have full control over the server and only grant our own technicians access to our servers once agreed with a non-disclosure agreement.
  3. All services are hosted on a virtual server with a sharply set firewall and access protocols.
  4. CV pictures from accounts are stored separately and are not accessible by using the URL without authentication (and thus won’t be indexed by any search engine).
  5. Access to the virtual servers is only granted to a combination of authorised persons, authorised devices and specific geographic locations established by the processor.
  6. Within the server application, we check at multiple levels whether the authorised user may view certain data.
  7. The server application and its dependencies are regularly updated.
  8. The root login is disabled from direct access and we blacklist IP addresses after too many false server login attempts.
  9. The server application is regularly checked for vulnerabilities as stated in the OWASP top 10 (the Open Web Application Security Project). Vulnerabilities found are immediately corrected.
We are committed to these principles in order to ensure that confidentiality of personal information is maintained. Exact information on which data we process and where this information is stored can be read in our processing register.

Changes in the Privacy Policy/Terms of Use/Disclaimer may change from time to time. We will post any change on this page and, if significant, we may send users an email concerning the changes.
