Privacy Policy


Trickle is the vacancy assistant for anonymous applications. We want to contribute to equality in the labor market through our job database. We do this by giving the applicant the opportunity to build up a resume without personal data that can be forwarded to the company in question. With this we want to avoid institutional favoritism on the basis of factors other than quality. Trickle offers a tool for the labor market in which factors such as ethnicity, gender and age are not visible to employers.

In order to offer our services, we process personal data within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). We believe the right to privacy and the protection of personal data are important. In this Privacy Policy we inform you how we handle your personal data, what your rights are and how you can exercise them. The capitalized terms below have the meaning as defined in the General Terms and Conditions in this Privacy Policy.


Trickle (“Trickle”, “we”, “our” or “us”) is the Data Controller for the processing of Personal Data as described below. Trickle is located at 1015 WV, Marnixstraat 128F in Amsterdam. Trickle is registered with the Chamber of Commerce under number 78662508 and the VAT number is NL86148761B01. You can reach us by email at

All personal data will not be shared with the Employer until the Employer has selected you and had an interview. We will inform you about this when this data is provided.

This data is used completely anonymously.

We may ask Users to complete a short survey in order to be able to research background, age and gender. This information is used completely anonymously.

We may only process Personal Data if there is a legal basis for this

Execution of the agreement

We can process Personal Data because we have an agreement with you. This can be an agreement of assignment or other agreements that we have agreed with you.

Legitimate interest

We can process Personal Data because we have a legitimate interest in this. This may be necessary to secure our systems or to monitor and improve the quality of our services. We also have a legitimate interest in bringing our products and Services to the attention of our (existing) customers. When we process Personal Data because we have a legitimate interest in doing so, we first carefully check whether your interests do not stand in the way of this.

Legal obligation

We can also process Personal Data from you because this is necessary in connection with a legal obligation that rests on us. This is the case when we process Personal Data to comply with privacy obligations, such as providing information (at your request). For example, we must also process Personal Data for the Tax Authorities.


If the aforementioned principles do not apply, we will ask for permission before we process your Personal Data. When we ask for your permission, we will clearly inform you what we are asking for this for. You can withdraw your consent at any time.


We do not store your Personal Data for longer than is necessary for the purposes for which they are processed.

We do not use the above retention periods if you have asked us to delete your Personal Data. You can read more information about your rights later in this Privacy Policy under “Your Rights”.


We may grant employees and other persons acting under the authority of Trickle access to your Personal Data. We only make our database available when necessary and there is no other option. In addition, employees and other persons acting under the authority of Trickle have a duty of confidentiality, unless they are required by law to make disclosures.

We can engage third parties in the implementation and / or delivery of our products and Services. Insofar as these third parties process your Personal Data on our behalf, they do this as processor and in that case we have concluded a processor agreement. This states, among other things, that processors must take appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your Personal Data.

We only provide your Personal Data to supervisory authorities, tax authorities and investigative authorities if this is legally required.


Trickle is located within the EEA. Your Personal Data will only be processed within the EEA.

  • Physical measures for access security;
