Privacy policy

At IS IT A BIRD we respect personal data. Here is a quick overview of the personal data we store as a part of running IS IT A BIRD, and how we handle it.


We want to be sure that you can use our website in the best possible way and as personally as possible. Therefore, we can use statistics services such as Google Analytics to see how you use our site. Of course, we have security agreements with these companies, so IP addresses are anonymized. Cookies are used for Analytics and Performance.


We do automated marketing through our mailing list IIAB Newsletter. It is our way to reach people who are interested in our approach, what we do and who we are. As a member of this list you will receive no more than a single newsletter a month (right now we only send out 4 a year) and invitations for 6 events a year. The list is hosted by Mailchimp and is fully GDPR compliant and you can unsubscribe at any point.


If you do business with IS IT A BIRD (as a supplier or customer) we need to store your contact information for the duration of the project (and some time after as required by the laws of accounting). This information is needed for things like billing and to be able to contact you later on matters relating to the project. We will not send you marketing based on this information. We are in the process of updating our project management system to inform contacts when we store their data; and automatically delete the information when a period of time have passed since the project was concluded.


Here we specify why we want your data, and what we are going to do with it.
We are obliged to inform you of the following:

  • Name of our organisation
  • Why we want your data
  • What we will do with it
  • That you can withdraw your consent at any time, and
  • Any third parties who will receive your data

First of all, protecting personal data is essential to us, and we want to be as transparent and open as possible about the use of your data. This policy has been created to ensure transparency in our practices and principles as well as to inform you of your personal rights.

What information is collected about you
When you upload information in our recruitment system (SmartRecruiters), we collect the following information:

  • Non-sensitive personal data, i.e. name, position, contact details, educational and professional background and any other personal data which you as an applicant provide, including references.
  • Sensitive personal data from references regarding personal performance.
  • We might collect personal data about criminal offenses, including your criminal record if this is deemed relevant for a position you are being offered.
  • Publicly available information, including publicly available information on social media, if relevant.  

For which purposes the data are collected
The data are processed only in relation to our HR recruitment process for job applicants.
Processing of the personal data that you upload in our HR recruitment system is based on your consent, cf. GDPR article 6(1)(a).

During the recruitment process, processing of your personal data is also based on our legitimate interest, cf. GDPR, article 6(1)(f), where it is necessary for IS IT A BIRD to process data to recruit applicants to open positions at IS IT A BIRD.

We process personal data collected from references, provided that you have given your specific consent, cf. GDPR article 6(1)(a).

We process personal data on criminal records if it is necessary to ensure that the applicant is suited for the position in IS IT A BIRD, cf. GDPR, Article 10, and the Danish Data Protection Act section 8(3).

How and for how long we process the collected data
When you apply for a position in IS IT A BIRD, we are responsible for taking care of your personal data as a data controller, which basically means that we determine the purposes and means of the processing of personal data.
We store your data for a period of twelve months after the date on which your application was rejected.
If you as an applicant is employed by IS IT A BIRD, the processing of personal data will continue as part of the employment relationship.

Security of processing
Data security is a high priority for us. We work seriously and professionally with information security, and we base our work on internationally recognised security standards. We have implemented security measures to ensure data protection of customer data, personal data and other confidential data. We conduct regular internal follow-ups in relation to the adequacy and compliance of policies and measures.

We occasionally use other third parties, such as subcontractors, in connection with provision of our services. Such third parties may be granted access to personal data in order for them to be able to provide the agreed service. If such third parties process personal data and therefore become data processors, IS IT A BIRD enters into data processing agreements in order to ensure that security is in place to protect data and comply with our data protection obligations. Our HR system (SmartRecruiters) is delivered by SmartRecruiters Ltd, and as such SmartRecruiters Ltd hosts data and acts as a data processor on behalf of IS IT A BIRD or one of our consolidated companies.

All IS IT A BIRD’s data processors are located within the EU or the UK. IS IT A BIRD’s data processing agreements ensure that all processing takes place in accordance with IS IT A BIRD’s instructions and is subject to the necessary security requirements.

We do not disclose any personal data to other third parties unless we are under a legal obligation to do so.
