Placing the basis and reading cookies
You do not require prior permission to place and read cookies for the sole purpose of communicating via the internet. The same applies to cookies that are strictly necessary to provide our services or analytical cookies that have little or no influence on your privacy. You cannot disable these cookies. This would seriously jeopardize the functioning of our website. For all other cookies, we ask your permission before we place and read the cookies. This is required by law. You can give this permission on the basis of the cookie banner. It states that you accept cookies by clicking further on our website.
Change your cookie settings?
If you have published certain information publicly on the internet, for example on your LinkedIn profile, we can view that information. We do this exclusively in the context of recruitment and selection. Based on this information, no decision is made whether or not to admit you to an application procedure or to reject you. We will not discriminate against you based on this information. We can process certain data about you if you send vacancies and activities to others via our website. With this so-called "share function", an e-mail is automatically created to forward the vacancy or activity. In addition to your own name and email address, the name and email address of the person to whom you want to forward the message will also be processed. This data is only used to generate the e-mail to be forwarded with the relevant vacancy or activity. If you choose to share content from our website via social media, your data may be visible to visitors of your personal page of the relevant social medium. We are not responsible or liable for the processing of your data via those social media.
Websites of third parties
AFG may refer to websites of other companies, persons or social media, for example by way of hyperlinks. AFG is not responsible or liable for the processing of your data via those websites. This cookie statement therefore does not apply to the use of third party websites.
Engaging third parties
AFG uses third parties to perform its services. Insofar as these third parties process your data on behalf of AFG, they do this as a processor. AFG has a processing agreement in place with those third parties, which includes security, confidentiality and your rights.
