Policies & Ethics

Gathering and processing of personal data

Treschow&Son uses different methods in finding the right candidates for our clients. Every personal data gathered as part of this process (name, position, workplace and contact information) is processed and stored properly. This information will be stored as long as it is necessary for the specific assignment. We reserve the right to store information on people, that have clearly expressed a desire not to be contacted in the future, to avoid future interruption.

Treschow&Son informs about consent for storage and processing of resumes before receiving them from candidates. This means, that when candidates send their resumé, Treschow&Son obtain consent for storage and processing of that given resumé. This consent is held until further is agreed.

As part of the further recruitment process, personal data will also include e.g. personality- and IQ-test, certificates, diplomas and transcript of records, criminal record, references and notes from interviews taken by a Treschow&Son employee.

Storage of Personal data

Treschow&Son is both the controller and processor of every personal data, that is gathered as part of our recruiting process.

The personal data, mentioned above, is stored properly and in compliance with GDPR. Treschow&Son uses the following supplier for proper storage; Ponty and Tresorit.

Furthermore, there exist clear internal procedures for receiving, processing, storing, and disposing of personal data gathered by Treschow&Son. Every employee of Treschow&Son is familiar with and subject to these procedures.


Tresorit is a cloud-based service provider that allows Treschow&Son to share files and collaborate with partners and employees with cryptographic end-to-end security.

Tresorit encrypts all and every transmission of information using Secure Socket Layer technology (SSL). The encrypted content and corresponding encryption keys can only be decrypted by Treschow&Son and persons with whom, Treschow&Son explicitly chooses to share.

Disclosure of personal data

Upon receiving resume, the candidate gives Treschow&Son consent to pass on the resume with third party as part of a recruiting process.

Exchange of personal data (e.g. resumes) along with other communication between Treschow&Son and the third party will only happen through encrypted services previously outlined.

When a third party receives personal data from Treschow&Son, then the third party will independently be the responsible controller of the data.

Reserved rights

Treschow&Son stores personal data as long as it is necessary for the specific assignment unless otherwise agreed upon. Candidates can always and without cost:

  • Request insight on which personal data, Treschow&Son has stored on said person,
  • Demand correction of the registered information,
  • Object to the processing of said person’s personal data,
  • Get the processing of the personal data limited,
  • Get personal data deleted,
  • Retrieve consent either full or partial, and
  • Notify Datatilsynet (The Danish Protection Agency), Borgergade 28, 1300 København K, phone.: 33193200, or via e-mail: dt@datatilsynet.dk, about Treschow&Son’s processing of personal data.

Policies & Ethical guidelines


Integrity constitutes the quality and professional pride we take in our work that is characterized by thoroughness and authenticity. We stay true to what we say with genuine interest and provide credible information for clients and candidates. We only work with companies/organisations, who show the same level of respect and commitment to people. When representing our clients, we are authentic in what we do and what we say supporting their values. For this reason, we do not represent companies/organisations, whose business is based on unethical services or products.


Confidentiality is central in our role as trusted advisors. We represent both our client’s and our candidates’ best interest and ensure discretion throughout the hiring process. We ensure that all disclosed information is agreed upon with clients and candidates.


Treschow&Son is focused on equal opportunity and committed to the principle of diversity. We therefore agree with our clients to value and embrace diversity in all aspects of our client’s activities and respect others without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, or political affiliation.

Client off limits

Clients’ employees will not be considered as candidates for hiring projects within a given timeframe from the active search.
