On the Investor and Media section of our website there is a template that permits you to enter your details and in particular, you can enter:
- Your e-mail address
- And which releases you want from us.
We store all this information internally so that we can then send out information to you when there are developments in the company that you may want to know about. We do not use this data for anything else and no one outside the investor relations function of Amniotics has access to this on a routine basis.
If you want to stop receiving this information from us, please let us know using the e-mail set out on that section of our website after which we will delete the information that is on the mailing list and ensure that you are not contacted again.
You are always welcome to sign up again.
Partnering Inquiries – Information that is collected and stored if you make a partnering inquiry
On the Partnering section of our website there is an e-mail address where you are invited to send any Partnering inquiries.
These e-mails are sent directly to our COO and Head of Business Development. Some of these e-mails can be forwarded to other people within the company, where it is relevant. The company stores a selection of these e-mails if they are relevant for the company’s present or future activities.
Except where specifically retained, the normal practice is to delete this e-mail once it has been responded to save for the normal back up of the IT system.
Employment – Information that is collected if you apply for a position.
Applications that are advertised on the website
On the career section of the website, we will occasionally set out positions that are open in the company and you are welcome to apply using the contact details that are set out on the advertisement.
In order to ensure compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we have a strict procedure for handling information that is supplied to us during an application process.
What is the legal basis for the treatment?
In order for Amniotics to be able to handle applications submitted by the registrants, conduct interviews and make decisions in a recruitment procedure, Amniotics must process certain personal data. The basis for this treatment is the balancing of interests and the conclusion of agreements.
What personal data is processed and who is the recipient?
Personal data processed by Amniotics includes name, date of birth, address, information about experience and skills, any photography, etc. In these cases, automated decision-making, including profiling, may occur.
Those who receive the information are mainly the HR manager, managers and hired recruitment companies. In cases where recruitment companies handle the recruitment, a personal data assistant agreement is always drawn up with the external actor, please see below about Amniotics routines for this.
For what purposes is personal data processed?
In order for Amniotics to be able to handle applications, interviews and decision-making in a recruitment procedure, we collect and process personal data.
How long is the personal data stored?
Amniotics never stores data longer than necessary for the purposes of the processing. Amniotics therefore performs regular thinning among stored personal data and deletes the data that is no longer needed. However, Amniotics may need to store the personal data after the recruitment process is completed if we deem it necessary to save them to handle legal claims that may be directed against Amniotics. The storage period is therefore 2 years.
General Contact Information – Information that is collected if you ask a general question.
On our website there is an e-mail address where you are invited to send any general questions that you have to firstname.lastname@example.org
This e-mail is sent to the COO and is reviewed periodically. The e-mail will be forwarded to the relevant person in the company if that is relevant. The e-mail is then deleted from the general in-box unless there is a specific reason to retain it.
Except where specifically retained, the normal practice is to delete this e-mail save for the normal back up of the system.
