Job Applicant Privacy Policy

We respect your concerns about privacy and value the relationship we have with you. This Job Applicant Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes the types of personal data we collect about job applicants, how we use this information, with whom we share it, and the rights of applicants regarding our use of their information. We also describe the measures we take to protect the security of that information, how long we retain it and how job applicants can contact us about our privacy practices and how to exercise their rights.

You are about to provide personal data as part of a recruitment process for Deciem Beauty Group Inc. and its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, "DECIEM" or the "Company").

Data Controller(s)

The Data controller for the purpose of the recruitment process is the legal entity where the employer is located (i.e., where the job offer is proposed). The details of the legal entities acting as data controllers for the purposes of this Privacy Policy are indicated below in the section below called “How to Contact Us”.

Information We Collect

The types of personal data you may provide to us for recruitment purposes include:

  • “Contact information” (such as name, postal address, email address and mobile or other phone number)
  • Your “CV” or “resume”
  • Proof of your identity (such as “passport”, “driver’s licence” or “health card”)
  • Information to conduct a background investigation (such as “criminal background check”)
  • Other files or content you provide (such as “cover letter”, “references”, “transcripts”, “photographs”, “videos”, “articles” and “comments”)
  • Academic and “professional details” (such as work experience and level of education)
  • Information to conduct a credit check (role dependent)

The information described above, if requested from you, is necessary to enter into a possible employment contract. You are not obliged to provide this information. However, should you decide not to provide any of the requested information, you will not be able to continue your candidacy for the specific position(s) you have selected.

If we make and you accept a former offer of employment with us, we will require further information from you in order to meet our obligations as an employer, such as your bank details so that we can pay your salary. We will process your information in accordance with our regular data protection practices.

How We Use the Information about You

The information you provide in connection with the recruitment process will be used for the purpose of evaluating and assessing your experience and qualifications as it relates to specific position requirements. We will use your information for this purpose in order to take pre-contractual steps at your request.

How Do We Share Your Information

Information you provide us as part of the recruitment process is accessible only to those DECIEM employees, consultants and other third-party service providers involved with our recruitment, interview and onboarding processes.

Your information may also be subject to disclosure when required or permitted by law, such as pursuant to a lawful access request by foreign courts, police or other government authorities.

Data Transfers

We may transfer the information we collect about you to jurisdictions other than the jurisdiction in which the information was originally collected and your information may be processed and stored outside of your jurisdiction of residence. Those jurisdictions may not have the same data protection laws as your jurisdiction of residence and your information may be subject to applicable foreign laws. If we transfer your information to other jurisdictions, we will protect that information in the manner described in DECIEM’s Global Privacy Policy. For additional information, please contact us as indicated below.

Data Retention Period

We will retain your personal data as long as needed to fulfill the purposes indicated in this Privacy Policy. As a general rule, depending on country specific provisions, we will keep job applicant records for no longer than two years after our last contact. For additional information about data retention policies, please contact us as indicated below.

Your Rights and Choices

You may withdraw any consent you previously provided to us at any time with effect for the future by contacting us as indicated below. This will not affect the lawfulness of our use of your information based on your consent before its withdrawal. Subject to applicable law, you have the right to request access to and rectification or erasure of the personal data we maintain about you, or to request the restriction of our use of this information or to object to such a use, as appropriate. You also have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to processing of your personal data for recruitment purposes, including profiling. Subject to applicable laws, no more than twice in a 12 month period you have the right to receive, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, the personal data that you have provided to us about you with your consent, and the right to have this information transmitted to another data controller, where it is technically feasible. You may also lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.

How We Protect Your Information

DECIEM is committed to protecting the security of your information. We maintain appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal data you provide against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use.
