PRIVACY STATEMENT [Last updated: May 2018]


The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect on May 25. The GDPR requires companies and site owners to be transparent about how they collect, use, and share personal data. It also gives individuals more access and choice when it comes to how their own personal data is collected, used, and shared. This Privacy Statement describes the ways in which we, Shortcut, collect, hold and use information about individual persons who visit our website or have some type of business connections with us, and also provides other relevant disclaimer information. Please read it carefully.



Shortcut respect privacy and acknowledge that there are certain rights related to any personal information we collect. We will not collect or maintain your data without your consent.

The term "Personal Data or Personal Information" as used in this Privacy Statement refers to information such as your name, birth date, e-mail address, mailing address, or telephone number that can be used to identify you. Generally, we will only process your Personal Data as described in this Privacy Policy. However, we reserve the right, to conduct additional processing to the extent permitted or required by law, or in support of any legal or criminal investigation.

At Shortcut, we usually collect personal information directly from you, thought direct talks, over the phone, or by email. Our services may also collect information through your interaction with Shortcut websites, social sites and applications, such as our recruitment tool. In our recruitment tool you will be required to provide personal information when you create a profile and log in credentials. Instead of having to type in your personal information, some of theme functionalities may allow you to use third-party authentication tools, such as Facebook, Twiter, Google and Linkedin to populate certain fields. Using one of the social media authentication, you allow us to receive your personal data and other information that is accessible through these tools. This information may be incorporated in your profile. We encourage you to also review the social provider’s privacy and any terms and conditions. As a candidate, your curricula vitae (CV) will be considered as part of your register. In general, we will use your personal data for the process of providing to you the services you may have requested us, and/or during the lifecycle or your employment. These uses may include, but are not limited to, using your personal information for insurance or workplace claims, payroll, or providing information to customers who are seeking to fill an employment position that matches your profile. IT includes sharing your CV with potential clients. We may use personal information to allow your participation in live social media feeds.
