We may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent where required by applicable law or regulation.

You will not be subject to decisions based on automated data processing without your prior consent.

Who do we collect your personal data from?

Contingent on the nature of our business relationship with you, we collect personal data from you, your employer, and public sites (e.g., your company website).

What is our legal basis for using your personal data?

We only process your personal data where applicable law permits or requires it, including where the processing is necessary:

  • For the performance of a contract between the company you represent and Cadeler.
  • To comply with a legal obligation that applies to Cadeler as part of the business relationship.
  • For our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of third parties (e.g., our clients), provided we have established that those interests are not overridden by your rights and freedoms, including your right to have your personal data collected. Legitimate interests may include optimizing our business processes; providing a safe system of work; and taking reasonable care of your health and safety and that of others.

In limited circumstances we may also need to process your personal data on the following legal grounds:

  • Obtaining your explicit consent for specific processing purposes.
  • Where it is necessary to protect the vital interests of you or another individual.

Some of these grounds for processing may overlap and there may be several grounds which justify our use of your personal data.

What about special categories of personal data?

Personal data relating to criminal convictions, offences and proceedings and the following special categories of personal data may receive higher levels of protection under applicable laws:

  • Racial or ethnic origin.
  • Political opinions.
  • Religious or philosophical beliefs.
  • Trade union membership.
  • Genetic data.
  • Biometric data.
  • Data concerning health.

We may only collect and process these types of data where:

  • it is needed in the public interest;
  • it is needed to assess your working capacity on health grounds (subject to appropriate confidentiality safeguards);
  • it is needed in relation to legal claims;

Where we have a legitimate need to process personal data relating to criminal convictions, offences and proceedings, and special categories of personal data for purposes not identified above, we will do so only after providing you with notice and, if required by law, obtaining your prior, express consent.

Where permitted by applicable law and as necessary for the purposes outlined above, we may transfer your personal data to recipients located in other countries that may not be deemed to provide the same level of data protection as your home country. In these circumstances, we will ensure that when we transfer your personal data we will protect it by using the appropriate contractual and technical controls applicable.

How do we secure your personal data?

We have implemented appropriate physical, technical, and organisational security measures designed to secure your personal data against accidental loss and unauthorized access, use, alteration, or disclosure. In addition, we limit access to personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties that have a legitimate business need for such access.

We require all third parties (including our third-party vendors and service providers) whom we need to share your personal data with, by written contract, to implement appropriate security measures to protect your personal data consistent with our policies and any data security obligations applicable to us as your employer. We do not permit third parties who process your personal data on our behalf to use your personal data for their own purposes. We only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes in accordance with our instructions.

How long do we store your personal data for?

We only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, as required to satisfy any legal, accounting, or reporting obligations, or as necessary to resolve disputes. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider applicable legal requirements, the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes we process your personal data for, and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means.

In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
