Ominee Privacy Policy Statement


Within this statement we try to give to our registered users (hereinafter referred to as "User" or "Users") of the Website www.ominee.com a description of the methods implemented to collect, use, share and, more generally, process of their personal data, identification and navigation data (the “Data”). Also we want to highlight the available options for accessing, modifying, deleting some Data or withdrawing consent to the processing of your Data. For the purposes of this statement, registered organizations are also referred to as "Users" or "User".

By using the Website, the User consent the collection, use and transfer of his / her Data as described within this statement.

The Data shared by the User shares on the Ominee Website, besides being available to be viewed by all those who registered on the Website, can be consulted, used and stored by others users around the world, including entities in countries that may not have a legislation that guarantees an adequate protection of personal information, as defined by your country of residence. Although Ominee adopts measures to protect User’s Data from unauthorized access or improper use, Ominee has no control over third parties and is not responsible for the use they make of the Data that the User provides. Therefore, the User must not publish sensitive information or any other information that he does not wish to publish on Ominee Website or on publicly accessible websites.

Through the Website, the User can make a direct search of profiles of other Users using multiple variables such as some skills, a specific degree or a particular role. Even those who access the Website without registering ("Visitor") can make research as well as view User profiles. However, in the latter case, a large part of the text linked with each User profile as well as the Users' Surname will be obscured.

The Website uses, both to interpret the meaning of the words and to be able to add information to the profiles of the Users, a computer ontology. This is a network of concepts that represents Ominee's knowledge base (hereinafter, "Knowledge Base"). This ontology, in addition to covering numerous professional and competence domains, is constantly evolving allowing Users to be able to complete their profile with updated data.

The search for each variable (skills, role, etc.) works by concepts and not by keyword. This means that to identify, for example, a specific variable, different linguistic forms can be used in different languages ​​(for example Finance, Finanza and Finanzas represent the same concept in English, Italian and Spanish respectively). Furthermore, the research uses automatic tools to interpret the meaning of the variables as well as different algorithms to classify and sort the results according to the higher or lower adherence to the required requirements. The result of the research is in few seconds, a list of Users who are compliant with the requirement searched for and using a dedicated chat ("Chat"), can quickly been contacted and possibly offered professional opportunities.

When the User accepts a contact or responds to a message to show the interest for a job opportunity, he consent the disclosure of his Data to those who requested the contact as well as to be contacted for the purposes related to the professional opportunity offered.

The Website allows you to make a direct search of profiles without having to look to the publication of job advertisements, without having to wait for applications and without having to carry out an analysis to verify whether the profile of the candidates actually corresponds to the requirements. This applies both in the event personnel is sought for recruitment purposes as well as professionals are sought to perform a specific service.

5) Cookies

Ominee collects data of users through the use of cookies and similar technologies. The description of the cookies used is given in the document called "Cookie Policy".

6) Scope of communication and disclosure

The Data being processed will not be disclosed. Users will be able to use their own data and / or those of other Users (in particular, the data contained in each profile) upon registration. The Data, within the limits of the purposes and methods described above, may be shared with other parties belonging to the following categories:

  • companies controlled or connected with Ominee, for administrative purposes and for the execution of the services requested by the Users;
  • third parties and customers of Ominee, for carrying out the services requested by the Users and, in particular, to facilitate the link between demand and supply of professional and work opportunities as well as, subject to consent, for marketing purposes;
  • subjects that provide services for the management of the Website and telecommunications networks;
  • collaborators and / or consultants that Ominee work with for the performance of technical and / or organizational activities or for marketing and communication purposes;
  • persons, studios or companies in assistance and consultancy relationships, with particular but not exclusive reference to issues of accounting, administrative, tax, legal nature, etc .;
  • authorities for the fulfillment of legal obligations and / or provisions of public bodies, upon request.

The subjects belonging to the categories mentioned before perform the function of Data Processing Manager, or operate in total autonomy as separate Data Controllers. The list of managers is available at Ominee's headquarters.

The User Data may be transferred to a third party who acquires Ominee, in part or in whole, regardless of whether such acquisition is the result of a merger, consolidation or purchase of all or a substantial part of Ominee's business. The User will be notified of the sale of all or a substantial portion of Ominee's business to a third party by e-mail or through a clearly visible notice published on the Website.

Any further communication or diffusion will take place only with the explicit consent of the User.

The Data will also be processed by employees and / or collaborators selected by Ominee, who carry out their activities as data processors, under the direct supervision of Ominee itself.

7) Legal basis of the statement

The User is free to provide his / her own Data. The provision of Data for the creation of the profile is necessary. In fact, the legal basis for processing Users' Data for activating Ominee's services is represented by the execution of the service requested by the User; therefore, the collection of such Data is necessary, since the eventual refusal to supply such Data involves the impossibility of Ominee to manage and perform the requested service.

For the purposes of carrying out aggregate analyzes and protecting Ominee's interests, the legal basis for processing the Users' Data responds to the "legitimate interest" of Ominee and of Ominee's customers. In such cases, although the collection of User Data is not mandatory under the law or essential for the provision of the service to them, it is still necessary as these Data are strictly connected and instrumental to the pursuit of such legitimate interests, which they do not prevail over the rights and fundamental freedoms of Users, and any refusal to supply them could make it impossible to provide the services requested.

Finally, in relation to the purposes of fulfilling the obligations of the law, although consent to the processing is not necessary, failure to provide the Users' Data entails the impossibility of obtaining the requested service.

8) Rights of interested parties

Users, as interested parties, may exercise specific rights as expressed by the art. 16, 17, 18 and 19 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679, being free, at any time, to access, rectify, update, supplement, delete, limit and oppose the processing of the data of their profile created on the Website (by writing their own authentication credentials). For example, they have the right to obtain:

  • confirmation of the existence or not of data concerning them and their communication in an intelligible form;
  • the origin of the Data, for the purposes and methods of the processing, of the subjects or categories of subjects to whom the Data may be communicated or who can learn about them as manager, appointee or designated representative;
  • updating, rectification or integration of Data;
  • the cancellation, transformation into anonymous form or blocking of Data processed in violation of the law.

Furthermore, the User has the right to object, in whole or in part, for legitimate reasons, to the processing of the Data.

Finally, where applicable, the User can exercise the right of rectification, the right to be forgotten, the right to limit the data processing, the right to data portability, as well as the right to lodge a complaint with the Data Protection Authority personal with reference to the data processing of the present Statement.

These rights can be exercised directly through the specific functions available on the Website or by sending a notice to the address privacy@ominee.com. If you contact the owner, the User is asked to provide the e-mail address, name, address and / or telephone numbers, in order to allow the correct handling of the request.
