How we collect personal data

When you contact us regarding a specific job vacancy or in a general interest, either via mail, e-mail or online (such as through our website), we will collect and process the information that you provide us with. This could include sensitive personal data, if you provide us with such data.

Under certain circumstances we process personal data about you that originates from publicly available sources like social media. This is for example the case when you include on your cv a link to a profile on LinkedIn or a similar professional social network.

In addition, if permitted by law, we – or a third party – can under certain circumstances use tracking tools on our website (such as cookies) to collect information about you. More information about the use of cookies on our website can be found in the cookie policy.

Different types of processing activities


Hotel Mayfair processes your personal data based on the contractual obligation, as the processing is necessary to enter into contract.

In connection with an open statement of interest/spontaneous application, Hotel Mayfair will process your application for the purpose of seeing which positions fit your profile and whether your profile matches any needs that Hotel Mayfair has.

In case there is no current vacancy, Hotel Mayfair may keep your application for future vacancies if you sent your application in connection with an open statement of interest or if you consent to this, if the application was sent in response to a specific vacancy.

The purpose for the processing is to hire new employees and facilitate future applications (in case of spontaneous application).

Below you can find an overview of the personal data processed in the recruitment process. You are not obligated to provide us with any information and personal data about you. However, in some cases, we will not be able to provide you with some of our services or products if we are not allowed to process your personal data.

Job Application

The information we process may include but is not limited to your name, telephone number, e-mail address, education, skills and previous professional experiences, photographs, certificates, transcripts and other information which you provide to us from a former or current employer, data which is provided by the persons who you offer as references, any salary demands, notes from interviews, any responses that you have given and test results from proficiency and/or personality tests that you took as part of the recruitment process.

In addition, other personal data that you chose to provide in your CV, cover letter, or other documents will be processed.

In a number of cases, the hotel also receives data from third parties, such as social networks through which you use, e.g. LinkedIn, selection and recruitment agencies, which carry out tests in the context of the application, your previous employer, but only if you have given your consent to do so.

To the extent possible, Hotel Mayfair will avoid processing sensitive personal data about you. In the event sensitive personal data will be processed, consent is obtained before such processing begins.


Hotel Mayfair may process the responses you provide and test results from proficiency and/or personality tests as a step in the recruitment process in order to have a better and more secure basis for decision making decisions before any hiring of new co-workers.

Responses which are given in connection with tests, and test results, are used as a supplementary assessment basis in the recruitment process. The applicant’s participation in proficiency and/or personality tests is voluntary. Any such processing takes place after a weighing of interests, where Hotel Mayfair’s interest in processing the responses you have provided in completed proficiency and/or personality tests, as well as test results, overrides the applicant’s interest in protecting its privacy.

In exceptional cases, sensitive personal data may be processed and, in such case, Hotel Mayfair will obtain written consent from the applicant before the test begins.

Personal data from proficiency and personality tests may become the subject of profiling in order to enable Hotel Mayfair to generate test results and/or personality profiles, if any.

Reference persons

In connection with a recruitment process, Hotel Mayfair may process personal data relating to reference persons. Such processing takes place with the aim of obtaining information about the applicant’s previous work and other information that may be relevant to the recruitment process.

Camera Surveillance 

Hotel Mayfair uses camera surveillance. Camera surveillance is deemed to be particularly sensitive from a privacy perspective and it is of great importance that all camera surveillance take place in accordance with the relevant legislation in effect from time to time.

The camera images are processed on the basis of our legitimate interest to secure and protect our hotel and our guests.

The camera images are processed in accordance with the GDPR and applicable national laws such. The hotel has, where necessary, indicated the camera surveillance by means of a pictogram.
