Various Types of Data in the HR File

Background information

If you subscribe to our Poplee Core HR solution, you certainly want to manage the data.

The use you make of this data may be subject to the provisions of the RGPD if you fall within one of the cases defined in articles 2 "Material scope" & 3 "Territorial scope" of the RGPD.

The use of the data you create must comply with European regulations on the protection of personal data. You are responsible for the compliance of this use, so it is important before creating any data to ask yourself how you wish to use this data.

The processing of so-called sensitive data within the meaning of the RGPD, such as racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs or trade union membership, as well as data concerning the health, sexual life or sexual orientation of a natural person, is in principle prohibited except in the cases mentioned in Article 9 of the RGPD.

There are three different types of data in the HR file:

Simple data

Simple data may take several formats. You can choose between the following formats: text, multi-line text, checkbox, value list, date, attachment, hypertext link, whole number or decimal number.
