This Personal Data Privacy Policy describes why and how we process your personal data and protect it in connection with our business activities like conducting our business activities, operating our web sites (, “Web Sites”), and executing our recruitment, employment and contracting.

Data privacy aspects related to the operation of our websites are described in detail in our Cookies and Tracking Policy.
Data privacy aspects related to our recruitment, employment and contracting are described in detail in our Recruitment Privacy Policy.


The fundamental definitions as defined by GDPR are reiterated and commented here:

  • Personal Data: Personal data is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable living individual. Different pieces of information, which collected together can lead to the identification of a particular person, also constitute personal data. For example, in its recruitment activities, Your Edge collects, among other information, a name and surname, an email address and a mobile phone.
  • Data Controller: The data controller determines the purposes for which and the means by which personal data is processed. So, if a company/organization decides “why” and “how” personal data should be processed, the company is a data controller. Employees processing personal data within the company do so to fulfil the tasks of the company. Your Edge is a data controller of some of your personal data, as specified in this Personal Data Privacy Policy, our Cookies and Tracking Policy and our Recruitment Privacy Policy.
  • Data Processor: The data processor processes personal data only on behalf of the controller. The data processor is usually a third party external to the company. Being a data controller, Your Edge takes care of that a contract or another legal act effectively covers the duties of these third-party data processors towards Your Edge. For example, the contract must indicate what happens to the personal data once the contract is terminated.
Collected Personal Data

We collect visitors’ device identifiers, their IP addresses, web browsers and their passage through our Web Sites (i.e. what they have searched for and visited).

  • Recruitment and Employment: We collect personal data from third-party platforms, contact forms on our Web Sites or through the web sites of our Data Processors, and obtained directly from job applicants. Our Recruitment Privacy Policy covers this area in detail.
  • Third-party: We collect personal data you published on third-party platforms, such as professional or other networks. We respect the rules of these third parties to use the data. We do not affect the terms and conditions based on which you have provided your personal data to these third parties.
