Applicant Privacy Notice

Scope and Overview

We are committed to protecting the privacy and security of your personal information. This Applicant Privacy Notice describes how we collect and process personal information about individuals who seek employment with us. This notice only relates to your interactions with us as an applicant.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

For purposes of this Applicant Privacy Notice, personal information means any information that identifies or can be used to identify an individual. Personal information excludes publicly anonymous or de-identified data that are not associated with a particular individual.

To carry out our recruitment activities, we have collected the following categories of personal information in the last 12 months:

  • Identifiers. This includes information such as your name, contact information, including phone number, and email address.
  • Professional or Employment Information. This includes information such as your CV, resume, profile, or cover letter that contain information about your employment history, work experience, and education history.
  • Sensitive Personal Information. In the course of your employment application, you may choose to provide to us your sensitive personal information such as your racial or ethnic origin, veteran status and/or health/disability status. If your application is successful, we will collect additional types of sensitive personal information, such as your date of birth, social security number, driver’s license number, other government-issued ID number, and/or citizenship/immigration status.


We collect the majority of the personal information that we use directly from you. In limited circumstances, we may obtain your personal information from third parties, such as former employers and others that assist with our recruiting activities.


We collect and use your personal information for the following purposes:

  • Assessing and comparing your skills, qualifications, and experience against other candidates and consider your candidacy for employment with us;
  • Communicating with you about the recruitment process, your application, recruitment events, and other potential career opportunities with us;
  • Informing our internal analysis and reporting on our hiring practices and making improvements to our application and recruitment process;
  • Maintaining security and detecting fraudulent activity;
  • Complying with legal obligations;
  • Verifying your information and identity;
  • Performing background checks;
  • Confirming your eligibility to work at a particular office;
  • Assisting, upon your request, with immigrant visas or work permits;
  • Evaluating potential conflicts of interest issues;
  • Conducting internal analysis and reporting on our hiring practices; and
  • Making improvements to our application and recruitment process.

We collect your sensitive personal information, such as your government issued ID number or social security number for purposes required by law and to process your job application, such as verifying your employment eligibility. When you voluntarily provide sensitive personal information such as your race or ethnic origin, we may use that information for reporting to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or towards the advancement of our Diversity & Inclusion initiatives.


In the last 12 months, we have disclosed your personal information with our employees, contractors, designated agents, or service providers who require such information to assist us with recruitment. Service providers may include, but are not limited to, employment background check providers, recruiting partners, and other service providers that help us manage our recruitment activities. When we contract with these service providers, we do not permit them to use or disclose your information for any purpose other than the work they are doing on our behalf or as required by law.

We may also disclose your personal information to third parties in order to comply with legal obligations or valid legal processes, to protect our rights and property, or for emergency/safety reasons. If a business transfer or change in ownership occurs, we may disclose information as necessary to complete the transaction.

We do not knowingly sell or share personal information of individuals under 16 years of age.

Data Security

We have implemented appropriate physical, technical, and administrative security measures designed to secure your personal information against accidental loss and unauthorized access, use, alteration, or disclosure.


We retain your personal information as long as it is necessary to evaluate your candidacy for employment with us and to comply with our data retention requirements. Even when you do not become our employee, we will keep your information for as long as necessary to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations, to make or defend legal claims, and to protect you and us against fraudulent activity of others.

Sales and Targeted Advertising

We do not sell your personal information or use it for targeted advertising (a concept known as “sharing” under California law).
