Which information do we collect?
When applying to a job or creating a profile in this recruiting platform, you are required to provide some personal information. The functionality to search for jobs is available without filling in any personal information. In order to create your profile or to apply to a job, you have to provide:
• personal data such as name, e-mail address and phone number
• your CV containing information like your education and work experience
We do not intend to collect any personal data concerning racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, sexual orientation or health, except if this is required by law in the country in which you are applying for a position.
You are responsible for ensuring that the personal data you provide is truthful, correct, non-ambiguous and up-to-date.
Why do we collect personal information?
We collect your personal information with the aim to enable you to apply online and to allow us to handle your application. If your profile matches the job, you may be contacted for further selection. Your personal data is processed on the basis of it being necessary in order to take steps at your request prior to and when considering the possibility of your employment and of entering into a contract with you.
We will be unable to consider you for employment if you do not provide us with these details. In some countries, we collect personal data about you from third parties, such as references supplied by former employers, subject to applicable local law requirements.
We might use your e-mail address to invite you to participate in a follow-up survey on the recruitment process. Your participation in such a survey is completely voluntarily.
How do we protect your personal data?
We take appropriate measures to maintain the confidentiality of your personal details. We use a variety of methods to help us to ensure the security of your data and to prevent third parties from viewing them, such as Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption, and firewalls. Nevertheless, we are not responsible if your personal data is suppressed or viewed by a virus, hacker, or system failure.
Where we engage third parties to process personal data, they do so on the basis of written instructions, are under a duty of confidentiality and are obliged to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the security of data.

FOR JOBS IN THE UNITED STATES ONLY, THE FOLLOWING APPLICANT STATEMENT APPLIES.
I understand and agree that:
Registering my personal data by creating a profile does not constitute an application. To apply for a position I must register my personal data by completing a Profile, link my Profile to a specific job opening and submit a completed Employment Eligibility Questionnaire. In addition, in the US, there are three further requirements that determine whether an individual is indeed an applicant:
Employment Eligibility Questionnaires older than 180 days will not be considered;
All information submitted in the Profile and Employment Eligibility Questionnaire indicates the individual possesses the minimal qualifications for the specific job opening; and
The individual has at no point in the company's selection process, prior to receiving an offer of employment from the company, removed himself or herself from further consideration, or otherwise indicated that he or she is no longer interested in the specific job opening.
