Privacy statement Lift B.V.
We respect your privacy and your rights to control your personal data. Our principle guidelines are simple. We will be clear about the data we collect and why. We will make sure that your personal data are adequately secured. We do not and will not sell your data to third parties.
The prime purpose of collecting your data is to allow you to use the Lift apps and to provide you with personal recommendations which are relevant to your career.
This Privacy Statement (the ‘Statement’) explains the personal data we collect from you, either directly or indirectly, and how we will use it. Personal data is any information that can be used to identify you or that we can link to you. The Statement applies to all products and services offered by Lift, including the Lift app and the Lift Facebook app (the ‘Apps’), any Lift-controlled websites, as well as offline interactions, such as customer support (collectively referred to as, ‘Lift Products and Services’). Please read this Statement carefully to understand how Lift may collect, use and share your personal data. The terms ‘we’, ‘us’, or ‘Lift’ are each intended as reference to Lift B.V.
- What personal data do we collect about you?
1.1 Lift app
When you use the Lift products, we collect information that you voluntarily provide to us, such as your name, gender, interests and email address. We collect information from the usage of the apps and chatbot conversations. We collect the questions asked by the app and chatbot and your answers in response to those questions. We do not and will not create questions related to special categories of personal data, such as your political opinions or health.
We automatically collect information about your use of the Lift products or information collected by cookies and similar technologies when you use, access or interact with the Lift products. We may, for example, collect information about the type of device you use to access our app, the operating system and version, your general location (city, country and region/province), your time zone, and other usage data, such as the number of times you tapped the chat button, the date when the app opened for the first time, last time you used the app, number of consecutive days that you used the app, number of recommendations and number of vacancy URLs opened.
1.2 Lift Facebook app
When you use the Lift Facebook app, we collect your name, username, gender, country and the link to your Facebook webpage. We also collect information from the chatbot conversation, similar to the Lift app.
When you visit our websites, we may automatically collect information about your use of the website or information collected by cookies and similar technologies when you use, access or interact with the website. We may, for example, collect information about your browser type, IP address, your general location (city, country and region/province), as indicated by your IP address, and other usage data, such as the webpages you view on our websites.
We do not target and do not intend to attract children under the age of sixteen. Although visitors of all ages may navigate through our websites or use our Apps, we do not knowingly collect or request personal data from those under the age of sixteen without parental consent. If, following a notification from a parent, guardian or by other means, we find out a child under sixteen has been improperly registered by us, we will cancel the child’s account and delete the child’s personal data from our records.
- For what purposes do we process your personal data and on what legal basis?
2.1 Basic usage of Apps

This includes downloading the Lift app or befriending the Lift Facebook app, to register and maintain your account and to make sure that the Apps perform their basic functions in a secure way. This processing is strictly necessary for the performance of the agreement we have with you.
2.2 Improvement of Apps

This includes maintaining and improving the performance and security of our Apps, developing and adding new features or capabilities, to detect and prevent fraud, to resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.
