NIRAS has a policy for protecting personal information for everyone. Everyone who visits niras.com, HR recruitment and protection of the people whose data we store.
NIRAS collects a series of information to improve the experience for our users.
We collect information in the following ways:
Information provided through your use of NIRAS website. Users are anonymous when using NIRAS website. We do not automatically register any information that can identify you personally.
Data that we register automatically through website usage monitoring (Google Analytics):
These data are collected solely to chart the use of the site, and we use it to develop and improve the user’s experience on the website. The collection of these data is not used in any way that allows us to identify who the user is, which means that the user stays anonymous while the session is being logged.
If the user does not want to disclose information about the user’s behaviour during their visit to the website to Google, they have the option to opt out by installing a deactivation add-on in their web browser.
Deactivation Add-On can be found here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
The information is stored for 30 minutes, 6 months and 480 days respectively.
The user may, if interested, choose to sign up for NIRAS electronic newsletters, by registering their e-mail address, name, position and company name. By registering for the newsletter, the user agrees to the disclosure of information to the third-party provider, who hosts the newsletter. The newsletter features current news articles. A valid e-mail address must be used to receive the newsletter, and the user will be registered as a recipient immediately after submitting the sign-up form. The information will be deleted if the user opts out of the newsletter.
When participating in events, held by NIRAS, the user (participant) is asked to register their email address, first and last names, position, and place of work.
If the user is interested in job opportunities at NIRAS, they can submit an online application or create a profile in NIRAS resumeé database. There, the user will be asked to fill in their name, address, email, gender, phone number, education, resumé, cover letter and photo. The data that you put into online forms for a newsletter signup or job application, as well as the information you give in your resumeé and send through our online recruiting system will be processed by third-party service providers. These will have access to and process your data.
If you apply to our development consulting projects and positions, you will be asked to register your first and last names and your email.
We store this type of information to process the user’s request, and will ensure that the information is treated with care, e.g. by enforcing access restrictions on the systems, we use. However, we cannot guarantee 100 percent secure online data transfers, as these can be illegally intercepted. Ultimately, the user is responsible for sending data to us.
If the user submits name, address, phone number, and email to the NIRAS website, when applying for a job, that information is stored in our database for up to 6 months, at which point all personal information is deleted. This period may only be prolonged through permission by the user.
Only a limited number of employees at NIRAS have access to the user’s information. Employees in the HR department can access job applications, event organizers can access event attendee lists, and the IT system used to send email newsletters are only accessible by a specific group of employees.
Personal information is encrypted when sent over the internet.
We do not use the gathered data on social media such as Linkedin commercially. We only collect the information we need to make a given application work.
According to Danish law, NIRAS is obliged to comply with the user's request for insight, rectification and deletion of information stored in NIRAS, with certain statutory exceptions.
The user has the right to object to NIRAS' way of collecting and processing data. If the user wants information about the data that is registered or the user wishes to revoke written consent, the user must contact NIRAS at e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
