We collect and process personal data about our suppliers, including individuals employed by suppliers.


What information is collected

For what purposes is the information collected

We process the personal data for contract management purposes, as well as to receive goods and services from our suppliers. Our basis is for the performance of agreements and contracts to which suppliers are party.



When you apply for a job with us, we receive and process a number of personal data about you.


When is the collection

When you send either an invited or unsolicited application to Jarnes, your personal data is collected. You can choose to send your application through several channels, including the form under the "Job" function at www.jarnes.net, to any specified email address, or directly to our address; Håndværkervej 34, 9320 Hjallerup.


What information is collected

The collection includes only general information typically linked to a CV, including name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. You decide whether to attach a portrait photo, references, certificates or diplomas. By submitting this information to Jarnes, you automatically consent to us recording and processing your information.


For what purposes is the information collected

The purpose of collecting personal data about you in the recruitment process is to assess whether you are a qualified candidate for a position at Jarnes.


Information from Social Media

When recruiting for positions with a focus on customer and collaborative relationships, it may be appropriate for us to conduct a search on social media, including LinkedIn and Facebook.

We use the balancing of interests rule in Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR as a legal basis to obtain information about candidates from social media. We do this in order to assess whether you have a profile that fits the company and the specific position.


Information from previous employer

For some positions, it is necessary to obtain references from previous employers. If we obtain references from one or more of your previous employers, we will record the information we receive.


We use your consent under Article 6(1)(a) of the Data Protection Regulation as the legal basis for processing this data and you will therefore be asked to give your consent before we contact one or more of your former employers. You can withdraw your consent at any time. You can do this by contacting us using the contact details above. If you withdraw your consent, it will only take effect from that moment. It therefore does not affect the lawfulness of our processing of the data up to the point at which you withdraw your consent.


Keep application for later recruitment

In some situations, even if you have been rejected, we may want to keep your application for future recruitment. If we want to save your application, we will ask for your consent to this.

We collect your personal data that you provide on Jarnes' websites; www.jarnes.dk and  www.jarnes-shop.dk.

When you visit www.jarnes.dk or www.jarnes-shop.dk, you will be informed about the collection of your personal data. Use of services on Jarnes' websites, such as ordering goods or applying for a job, requires you to provide certain personal data. The same applies if you subscribe to our newsletters.

Processor safety

Jarnes strives to protect the quality and integrity of your personal data to the best of its ability. Therefore, Jarnes has implemented special security measures to this effect.



Jarnes collects personal data directly from you.


Disclosure of personal data

Only selected persons from the administration have access to the personal data, and therefore personal data in Jarnes is only processed by employees for whom it is relevant. We only disclose personal data when we have a lawful basis to do so and the security measures are in place.

We also use third parties in the form of subcontractors, referred to as data processors, in connection with the provision of services, hosting, recruitment, IT and the sending of newsletters. Such third parties may in this context be entrusted with personal data necessary for them to provide the agreed service

Jarnes enters into the agreements necessary to ensure that security is in place to protect personal data and comply with our data protection obligations. If the transfer takes place to a third country outside the EU, the agreement will only be concluded with companies that are party to the Privacy Shield agreement.


Storage of personal data

Jarnes deletes personal data when there is no longer a legitimate work-related purpose for processing them. Personal data related to customers and suppliers are kept for as long as the relationship is relevant, while applications from candidates who are not hired by the company are generally kept for up to 6 months after the rejection of the candidates. Please note that we continue to store personal data on our backup, although personal data will be deleted from Jarnes' other systems.
