Interview Intro (www.interviewintro.com) is a candidate ATS (applicant tracking system) used by employers to receive job applications from candidates who apply for specific job opportunities. The system allows companies to offer one-way video interview requests to candidates, as part of an initial screening process in the early recruitment stages, whilst giving candidates the opportunity to provide more than just a CV or cover letter to showcase their suitability for a job role.
Information for applicants:
Interview Intro takes data protection very seriously and understands the importance of protecting your privacy and Personal Information. ‘Personal Information’ is information that identifies you as an individual such as your name, date of birth, email address, CV and IP address.
We will ensure that the information you submit to us via our website, via online job boards, job adverts, by email, or through mobile apps is used only for the purposes set out in this policy.
What legal basis do we rely on to process your Personal Information?
Interview Intro processes your data with your consent. For example, we rely on consent when you apply to a position via a weblink direct to the Interview Intro / client portal. You have the right to withdraw consent at any time. Where consent is the only legal basis for processing, we will cease to process data after consent is withdrawn.
• Legitimate interest
Interview Intro is used by companies who recruit using numerous methods and platforms (job boards, newspapers, company websites etc), therefore when you apply directly to a particular position within your chosen company, they may use Interview Intro as their ATS system to store your application and request a one-way video interview with you. The legitimate interest is to assist in you getting an interview for the job and company for which you have applied.
How does Interview Intro protect the privacy of applicants applying for job vacancies?
We take the security and privacy of all Interview Intro users very seriously and have followed the GDPR guidelines to protect the privacy of all users of Interview Intro whether or not they are EU residents. Any data uploaded to Interview Intro is securely transmitted using 256 bit encryption. Our servers are hosted by DigitalOcean (New York). Applicants can request to have their video interview and any other personal data removed from our servers. To do so send an email from the email address you used to take the interview to email@example.com. Companies using Interview Intro review the application information to help them make a decision on the suitability of a candidate and whether to invite for a face to face interview. The information is only shared with authorised recruiting staff or other key members within the company looking to make the hire. These staff must first accept the Terms & Conditions and Privacy Statement enforced by Interview Intro.
The video interviews are only allowed to be viewed from our servers and we do not offer a facility for the video data to be downloaded to other computer devices. No data is processed or used for a secondary purpose.
Information for organisations:
Interview Intro acts as Data Processor and organisations using the service are Data Controllers.
