This website and our platform (available at: https://www.wiggli.io) is operated by Wiggli, a trading name of Hireme SA, situated at 2 Boulevard de la Woluwe, 1150 Brussels, Belgium registered in the Companies Database under number BE0678.483.029 (“Wiggli”). In this policy, references to “us”, “we”, “ours”, “our” refer to Wiggli.
We have developed an innovative cloud-based software platform and related services known as the Wiggli Platform or the Services. The Wiggli Platform comprises: (i) a total talent recruiting and management suite composed of a state of the art cloud-based: Applicant Tracking System, Vendor Management System and Freelance Management System and related services and cloud-based products including Employer Branding and Candidate Pools (Talent Acquisition Tool); (ii) a web-based job-board portal where registered companies are able to post vacancies and registered users can apply for them (CV Library); and (ii) an innovative web-based online marketplace for contractor intermediation and introductory services (Marketplace). For more information about Wiggli, what we do and the services we offer, please visit our homepage: https://www.wiggli.io
When you use the Wiggli Platform, our aim is to give users full control over their privacy rights and to allow them to update or amend their profile and status at any time, as further described in this policy and through use of our Services.
As part of our Services, we will process personal data. When we do so, we are regulated under the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR) which applies across the European Union (including in Belgium). Depending on the Services that we are providing to you, our role under the GDPR will change.
As a candidate or user of our Services, you will be required to create an account with Wiggli. We are generally the data controller of, and are therefore responsible for, all personal information processed via your Wiggli account, save in specific situations which we have set out below.
Finally, when we are providing our Marketplace, we act as data controller of any personal information about our users that they provide via the Wiggli portal in order to benefit from the Marketplace Services. If you are a candidate and you are introduced to a company by an agency via the Marketplace, the company and the agency are data controllers of your personal data, and in that case, we are only acting as a data processor (being the secure channel by which your information is shared). Therefore, you should consult the company you have been introduced to or the agency you are represented by to receive details of their privacy policies, if you have not already done so.
Throughout the Wiggli Platform, we may link to other websites owned and operated by third parties, and your data may be collected and processed by third parties (such as companies seeking to hire or recruitment agencies). These other third parties and their websites may also gather information about you in accordance with their own separate privacy policies. For privacy information relating to these other third parties or their websites, please consult their privacy policies as appropriate.
Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data). We collect personal information about you when you access our website, create a Wiggli account, contact us, send us feedback, use our Services or the Wiggli Platform, upload material to the Wiggli Platform, and complete surveys on the Wiggli Platform.
We collect this personal information from you either directly, such as when you create an account with us, contact us or use our Services via the Wiggli Platform or indirectly, such as your browsing activity while on the Wiggli Platform (see ‘Cookies’ below), or where we have obtained your details from third parties.
When you use our Services, such as the CV Library, our users have full control over their privacy rights and can update or amend their status as they see fit, and at any time.
Accordingly, you can set your visibility options via your Wiggli account. You can set your status to: active (enabling you to look for jobs and clients are able to search for your profile); passive (enabling you to look for jobs but clients will not be able to find your profile); or anonymous (which is the same setting as “active”, but you will be able to hide your personal information. You are in full control over what information you want to reveal to clients or other users.
The personal information we collect about you depends on the particular activities carried out through the Wiggli Platform, and whether you are a website visitor, a registered user, or a candidate, or a client.
This information may therefore include:
We use this personal information to:
The Wiggli Platform is not intended for use by children and we do not knowingly collect or use personal information relating to children.
We do not collect any Sensitive Personal Data (also known as Special Categories of Personal Data) about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health, and genetic and biometric data) unless we have obtained your express consent to do so, and you provide this information to us directly. You are also able to withdraw your consent to our processing your sensitive personal data at any time by contacting us. You are also able to remove sensitive personal data from your profile at any time via your personal space in the Wiggli Platform. You have full control over the information you share in your Wiggli account, your settings, status and who can see your profile.
When we use your personal information we are required to have a legal basis for doing so. There are various different legal bases on which we may rely, depending on what personal information we process and why.
The legal bases we may rely on include:
How and why we use your personal information The table below explains what we use (process) your personal information for and our reasons for doing so:
|What we use your personal information for||Our reasons|
|To provide our Services and administer them to you||For the performance of our contract with you or to take steps at your request before entering into a contract and in our mutual legitimate interests.|
|To prevent and detect fraud against you or Wiggli or our clients||For our legitimate interests or those of a third party, i.e., to minimise fraud that could be damaging for us and for you and our clients.|
|Conducting checks to identify our users and verify their identity||To comply with our legal and regulatory obligations and to comply with our client requirements (pursuant to the subscription contract we have with them).|
|Ensuring business policies are adhered to, eg policies covering security and internet use and IT||For our legitimate interests or those of a third party, i.e., to make sure we are following our own internal procedures so we can deliver the best service to you and our clients.|
|Operational reasons, such as improving efficiency, training and quality control||For our legitimate interests or those of a third party, i.e., to be as efficient as we can so we can deliver the best service for you, and where the services attract a fee or require a subscription, at the best price.|
|Ensuring the confidentiality of commercially sensitive information||For our legitimate interests or those of a third party, i.e., to protect trade secrets and other commercially valuable information|
|Statistical analysis to help us manage our business, eg in relation to our user base, Services or other efficiency measures||For our legitimate interests or those of a third party, i.e., to be as efficient as we can so we can deliver the best service for you at the best price, where our services attract a fee or require a subscription.|
The above table does not apply to special category personal information, which we will only process with your explicit consent.
We do not share your personal data with any third parties unless you expressly agree that we may do so.
For example, if you are a candidate using the CV Library, we will share your personal data with companies you apply to, or who reach out to you, if you give your consent to do so by clicking on the relevant button within the Wiggli Platform. Likewise, if you are a client or other third party using our Marketplace, we will share your personal data between the relevant stakeholders when you have mutually agreed to take a proposal forwards. All of this takes place within the Wiggli Platform, and the information shared is the data that you input to create your profile. You can modify your profile at any time within your private space on the Wiggli Platform. As part of this, you can change your status on your profile to active, passive, or anonymous, for greater control over the visibility of your personal data, as set out above.
We also share your personal data with our external suppliers and service providers to ensure the proper administration of our Services. For example, we may also share your data with third party service providers providing us with IT, development, cloud hosting and storage, marketing and customer engagement providers, legal, financial and tax services. This data sharing enables the relevant third parties to carry out their tasks and also enable us to properly perform our agreement with you, and/or provide you with our Services.
Some of those third-party recipients may be based outside the European Economic Area — for further information including on how we safeguard your personal data when this occurs, see ‘Transfer of your information out of the EEA’ below. We will only share personal information with law enforcement or other authorities if required by applicable law.
Aside from the scenarios referred to above, we will not share your personal information with any other third party without your consent. Furthermore, we only allow our service providers to handle your personal information if we are satisfied they take appropriate measures to protect your personal information. We also impose contractual obligations on service providers and all third parties to ensure they can only use your personal information to provide services to us and to you.
To deliver services to you, it is sometimes necessary for us to share your personal information outside the European Economic Area (EEA), e.g.:
with your and our service providers located outside the EEA;
if you are based outside the EEA;
where there is an international dimension to the services we are providing to you.
These transfers are subject to special rules under European and Belgian data protection law.
Some countries outside of the EEA do not have the same data protection laws as Belgium and other countries in the EEA. We will, however, ensure the transfer complies with data protection law and all personal information will be secure. Our standard practice is to use standard data protection contract clauses that have been approved by the European Commission (the Standard Contractual Clauses). For clarification, since the United Kingdom has now left the European Union, we currently conduct EU-UK data transfers in reliance on the grace period which has been accorded between the two territories, until such time as the UK Adequacy Decision is granted by the European Commission. If the grace period ends prior to a UK Adequacy Decision being granted or if this decision is not granted, then we will ensure that EU-UK transfers of personal data are protected by entering into the Standard Contractual Clauses for these transfers.
We will not otherwise transfer your personal data outside of the EEA or to any organisation (or subordinate bodies) governed by public international law or which is set up under any agreement between two or more countries. If you would like further information, please contact us (see ‘How to contact us’ below).
We will keep your personal information while you have an active account with us or while we are providing Services to you or for as long as you remain a user of the Wiggli Platform. Thereafter, we will keep your personal information for as long as is necessary:
We may have to keep your personal data for a longer period of time, in order to comply with a legal obligation or to establish, exercise or defend legal claims. However, when it is no longer necessary to retain your personal information, we will delete or anonymise it.
We would like to send you information about our Services and any latest news or updates which may be of interest to you. Where we have your consent, we may do this by post, email, telephone, text message (SMS) or automated call.
We may obtain your personal information from third party companies, such as suppliers, job boards and social media. We may also share your personal data with Wiggli’s associated companies, so that they may send you information about their services. When we do either of these things, we always ensure that we respect relevant requirements under e-privacy law. Accordingly, we will only ask whether you would like us to send you marketing messages when you tick the relevant boxes when you sign up to the Wiggli Platform, contact us, sign up to our newsletter or activate this option in your notifications tab within your account or respond to an introductory email we have sent you. If you have previously agreed to being contacted in this way, you can unsubscribe at any time by:
It may take up to 30 days for this to take place. For more information on your rights in relation to marketing, see ‘Your rights’ below.

Those processing your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality. We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so. If you want detailed information from Get Safe Online on how to protect your information and your computers and devices against fraud, identity theft, viruses and many other online problems, please visit their website.
We hope that we can resolve any query or concern you raise about our use of your information.
