Website Privacy Policy

Verve Group, Inc. (“Verve”) is committed to protecting consumer privacy and to clearly informing users about the collection and use of information. The following describes information collection practices at this web site only. For information about Verve’s advertising and data services please contact us.

Personal Information

When we use the phrase “Personal Information” we mean contact information (e.g., name, address, email, or telephone number) as well as any other information that can be linked with you or your household.

Verve does not share your Personal Information except as provided in this Privacy Policy. We may disclose certain Personal Information:

  • To third-party contractors who help us provide the Services, in which case we will take reasonable steps to ensure that these parties comply with confidentiality obligations and contractually require these parties to only use the information as needed to provide services to us;
  • To third parties that you ask or to whom you have authorized us to send Personal Information;
  • To any subsidiary organizations, joint ventures, or other organizations under our control or under common control with us (collectively, “Affiliates”), in which case we will require our Affiliates to honor this Privacy Policy;
  • If we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to (a) resolve disputes or investigate problems (b) comply with relevant laws or to respond to lawful requests from law enforcement or other public authorities; or (c) protect and defend our rights or property or the rights and property of you or third parties; or
  • In connection with or during negotiation of any merger, financing, acquisition or dissolution, transaction, or proceeding involving sale, transfer, divestiture, or disclosure of all or a portion of our business or assets. In the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership, Personal Information may also be transferred as a business asset. If another company acquires our company, business, or assets, that company will possess the Personal Information collected by us and will assume the rights and obligations regarding your Personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy.

How Personal Information is Used

Information collected at this site is used to provide information and services for our business partners or prospective partners interested in utilizing our advertising or data services.

How Personal Information is Used in the Recruitment Process

a) Recruitee

For the recruitment process, Verve is using the services of Recruitee B.V., Johan Huizingalaan 763, (1066 VH) Amsterdam, the Netherlands (“Recruitee”). Recruitee is a web service implemented on the Verve website. Applicant data is stored by Recruitee on our behalf. The data is transferred in encrypted form and stored in data centers in Europe. We have concluded a data processing agreement with Recruitee pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR, which ensures that Recruitee processes the data exclusively in accordance with our instructions and guarantees the upholding of European data protection principles. We kindly ask for your understanding that due to data privacy reasons we can’t process applications received outside of Recruitee. Further information about data protection at Recruitee can be found in Recruitee’s privacy policy.

In order to receive and process your application, we collect the following applicant data: first and last name, email address, telephone number, citizenship and application documents (such as a resume). You may also provide us with additional information that you may want us to consider when you apply (e.g. your salary expectations, availability or additional documents). We will check your application and contact you if necessary, in particular, to make appointments or to clarify any questions.

If you apply for a position at Verve, in principle we will not pass on your applicant data to third parties.

For our European Companies and/or for European applicants the legal basis for the processing of your applicant data is Art. 6 (1) (b) and Art. 88 (1) GDPR in conjunction with Section 26 (1) of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). We store your applicant data upon receipt of your application. If we accept your application and subsequently employ you, we will store your applicant data for as long as the data is necessary for your employment and as far as we are legally required to retain it. If we reject your application, we will store your applicant data for a maximum of six months after rejection of your application, unless you give us your consent to longer storage (Verve talent pool). The data will be deleted automatically after this period. This also applies to applicant data stored by one of the ventures in our portfolio as part of the application process.

b) Verve talent pool

If you consent to become part of our talent pool, we will store the data you submitted for your application in our Verve talent pool for a further 24 months. This will allow us to identify any further jobs at Verve Group, which may be of interest to you and, if necessary, to contact you again using the stored contact details. You can withdraw your consent at any time with future effect by emailing us at hr@verve.com.

Newsletter and Marketing Updates

If you subscribe to our newsletter, we inform you about all offers, services and other activities by us or the other companies in the Verve Group and about all other offers, services and other activities by third parties in connection with the offers, services and other activities of one or more companies in the Verve Group (so-called Verve Group Newsletter). You can unsubscribe from this newsletter free of charge at any time using the link contained in the newsletter (“Unsubscribe Button”).

For sending the newsletter we use the marketing tool of a service provider. Your e-mail address, which receives our newsletter, and other personal data are stored on the service provider’s servers. This information is used to send and evaluate the newsletter. For this purpose, so-called tracking pixels are used, i.e. in our newsletter there is a non-visible image file which transmits technical information to the service provider when the newsletter is opened (e.g. whether the newsletter has been opened). Your data will not be used by the service provider independently to send the newsletter.

How Personal Information is Controlled or Corrected

In the event you provide us with Personal Information, you can review, correct, or request its deletion, by emailing us at privacy@verve.com. If you are a California Resident, please email us at: privacy@verve.com for instructions for how you can exercise your California access, deletion and Do Not Sell rights.

Cookies and Tracking

This site uses cookies, tracking pixels, and other device identifiers to track usage of this site and to help deliver the site’s content.

Security

Verve takes reasonable and appropriate measures to protect personal information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, taking into due account the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the personal data.
