Privacy Policy Job Applications

As part of our recruitment process, Cloetta collects and processes personal data related to job applicants and open applicants. In this process, Cloetta is committed to its data protection obligations.


We need to process applicants’ data in order to process your (open) application, assess your capabilities and suitability for employment before we offer applicants’ a job. Data in the database is also used anonymously for statistical purposes.

We also need to process data to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract with you.


What information do we collect from you?

Cloetta collects the following information:

-          your name, address and contact details, including email address and telephone number;

-          details of your qualifications, education, skills, experience and employment history;

-          desired salary and other compensation and benefits;

-          information about your work permit.


This data is collected in several ways, such as in application forms, CVs or resumes, motivational letters or collected through job interviews or other forms of assessment. Only with applicants’ approval will we collect information from third parties, such as references.


Legal basis for processing your data

The legal basis for storing and processing your data is your consent. If you do not wish to give us a consent to process your data in our recruitment process, we unfortunately cannot process your job application. You can withdraw your consent at any time. However, the withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.


Storage of data

Your data will be stored in our ATS system and on other IT systems (including email).


By agreeing with this Privacy Policy we will save you data for a maximum of one year after applying.

If your application is unsuccessful, Cloetta will also keep your personal data on file for a maximum of one year in case there are future employment opportunities for which you may be suited.

In case the recruitment process leads to employment, your personal data can be processed in tasks related to employment.


Who has access to your data?

Cloetta has a partnership with Adver-Online (provider of our ATS System).


Your information may also be shared internally for the purposes of the recruitment exercise. This includes members of the HR and recruitment team, interviewers involved in the recruitment process, managers in the business area with a vacancy or third parties when working with an external recruitment partner in fulfilling the vacancy such as recruitment agencies or talent assessment tools (f.i. SHL or Management Drives).


Your data will not be transferred to third countries outside the EU.


Your rights

As a data subject, you have a number of rights. You can:

-          access and obtain a copy of your data on request;

-          require the organization to change incorrect or incomplete data;

-          require the organization to delete or stop processing your data, for example where the data is no longer necessary for the purposes of processing;

-          you have the right to data portability;

-          object to the processing of your data. However, if you do not provide the information, we may not be able to process your application properly or at all.
