Data will be stored in a range of different places, including on your application record, in our HR management systems and our email system.

We may also need to process data from job applicants to respond to and defend against legal claims.
In some cases, we need to process data to ensure that we are complying with our legal obligations. For example, we are required to check a successful applicant's eligibility to work in Denmark before employment starts.
We will not use your data for any purpose other than the recruitment process of which you are a part.
Who has access to data?
Your information may be shared internally within the company for the purposes of the recruitment process. This includes members of the HR team, interviewers involved in the recruitment process, and managers in the business area with a vacancy.

DAMM takes the security of your data seriously. We have internal policies and controls in place to ensure that your data is not lost, accidentally destroyed, misused or disclosed, and is not accessed except by our personnel in the proper performance of their duties.

If your application for employment is unsuccessful (including when you have sent us an unsolicited application in respect of a role which is not available), we will hold your data on file for six months. At the end of that period, your data are deleted or destroyed (unless we need to retain them for longer to exercise or defend any legal claims).
