We have a lot of information that can be considered valuable to you in our systems, due to us receiving CV and personal letters, work history, profile pictures and other relevant information we might need when we handle you as a candidate. You can always contact us if you wish to be deleted from our systems. This goes for any information that we do not need to save for legal reasons. (Tax law may require us to save personal information about previous employees such as salary information.)

If we have information about you in our system it’s most likely because of one of the following reasons:

  • You have applied for an assignment through us, our website or registered your information in our database CATSONE.
  • We have been in contact with you through LinkedIn, recommendations or previous employments.
  • You currently work with us or have previously worked with us at some point

The purpose of the information about your education, qualifications and experience, is to identify your competence as a candidate and match it with the assignments that Devoote get from clients. Devoote will process and store consultants personal data for as long as necessary for the purposes that applied when we collected the data.

We have received your information in one of the following ways:

  • You have provided the information to our network in connection with a recruitment or application process on our website (our CV database CATSONE).
  • We have collected data from others for example. referrals, customers and sources such as LinkedIn.

If you still want to be part of our network and receive job offers, you don’t need to do anything. (We will keep believing that the interest in us contacting you regarding relevant and potential assignments is mutual). Of course you always have the right to leave us whenever you want by simply contacting us requesting to be deleted from our base by sending an email to
