This Job Candidate Privacy Notice describes what personal data GT Gettaxi (UK) Limited and its local affiliate relevant to the job in question (“Gett”, “we”, or “us”) collect and process on our job candidates and applicants (“Candidate(s)”, “you”) with respect to their application and recruitment process, why we collect it and how we use it. It also describes how candidates may exercise their rights to such data held with us.
We strongly urge you to read this Notice and make sure that you fully understand and agree to the practices it describes. If you do not agree to this Notice, please avoid providing us with your data.
You are not legally required to provide us with any personal data, but without it, we may not be able to process your application.
1. What data do we collect, how do we collect it, and how do we use it?
Throughout the application and recruitment process, you may provide us (or we may otherwise have access to) personal data about you, such as your identifying data, contact details, resume/CV, salary expectations, work-related data, social media activity, etc. We may collect this data directly from you, as you provide it voluntarily through your application and candidacy review process, or from other sources such as recruitment agencies, background check services (as applicable and subject to applicable law), or your references.
We may use such data to assess our Candidates’ skills, qualifications and overall to verify, consider and process their application and candidacy for any of our positions, and to communicate with them regarding such processes. We may also use it to manage risk and enhance our security and anti-fraud measures, and to create aggregated statistical or inferred data regarding our Candidates, for further development and improvement of our recruitment processes.
In addition, we may use it to act as permitted or required by any legal or regulatory requirements. Should we wish to conduct any additional activities that may require the use of your data, we will notify you in advance and, if required by applicable law, request your prior specific consent.
In some regions, we may also ask you to submit sensitive data relating to your ethnicity, gender, and whether you have a disability, to ensure our compliance with our legal obligations under applicable law, or otherwise to better analyze and improve our hiring practices. We may also collect sensitive data about your prior criminal convictions and offences as part of our background checks for specific roles if permitted or required by applicable law. To the extent legally required, we will obtain your explicit consent prior to any such collection and use.
2. For what purposes do we use our Candidates’ data?
We will use and process your personal data as part of the employment application process at Gett for the following purposes and in reliance on the lawful bases noted below:
If you reside in a territory governed by privacy laws under which “Consent” is the only or most appropriate legal basis for the processing of personal data as described herein, your acceptance of this Notice will be deemed as your consent to the processing of your personal data for all purposes detailed in this Notice. If you wish to revoke such consent, you may do so at any time by contacting us at email@example.com.
3. Where do we store our Candidates’ data?
Your personal data will be maintained, processed and stored by Gett and our Service Providers (as defined in Section 6 below) in the applied position’s location(s), in relevant Gett offices worldwide (including Israel and the UK), and in other jurisdictions as necessary for the proper handling of your candidacy.
While privacy laws may vary between jurisdictions, Gett, its affiliates and Service Providers processing personal data on our behalf are each committed to protecting personal data in accordance with this Notice, customary industry standards, and such appropriate lawful mechanisms and contractual terms requiring adequate data protection, regardless of any lesser legal requirements that may apply in the jurisdiction to which such data is transferred.
To the extent we transfer Candidates’ personal data originating in the European Economic Area (EEA), UK, or Switzerland to countries that have not been recognized as offering an adequate level of data protection by the relevant competent authority, we rely on appropriate contractual undertakings and data transfer mechanism as established under applicable law, such as the standard contractual clauses adopted by the EU (available here) and the UK (available here). You can obtain a copy of specific standard contractual clauses used by us by contacting us in accordance with Section 10 below. If we transfer Candidates’ personal data originating from the EEA to Israel or the UK, and if we transfer such data originating from the UK to Israel or the EEA, we rely on the respective adequacy findings of the EU and the UK regarding the level of data protection offered by Israel, the UK, and the EEA.
4. For how long may we keep your data?
We may retain Candidates’ data even after the applied position has been filled or closed. This is done so we could reconsider Candidates for other positions and opportunities at Gett; so that we may use their personal data as reference for future applications submitted by them; in case the Candidate is hired, for additional employment and business purposes related to their work; and as reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse, enforce our agreements or otherwise protect our legitimate interests.
5. How do we secure your data?
Gett has implemented physical, procedural and electronic security measures designed to protect the personal data of our Candidates. These measures provide sound industry standard security, confirmed also by Gett’s ISO 27001 and 27018 certifications. Please be aware that regardless of the measures we take and the efforts we make, we cannot and do not guarantee the absolute protection and security of any personal data stored with us.
6. Who will have access to your data?
Gett will share your personal data with several selected third-party service providers, whose services and solutions complement, facilitate and enhance our own. These include any recruitment firms that have referred you to us (or vice versa), candidate evaluation centers, applicant tracking and recruitment software providers, background checks providers, data storage and cybersecurity services, web analytics, and our business, legal, compliance and financial advisors (collectively, “Service Providers“). Such Service Providers may receive or otherwise have limited access to your personal data, depending on each of their particular roles and purposes in facilitating and enhancing our recruitment process, and may only use it for such purposes.
Additionally, we may disclose or otherwise allow access to your personal data pursuant to a legal request, such as a subpoena, search warrant or court order, or in compliance with applicable laws, with or without notice to you, if we have a good faith belief that we are legally required to do so, or that disclosure is appropriate in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding actual or suspected illegal activity, fraud or other wrongdoing. We may also share your personal data with others, with or without notice to you, if we believe in good faith that this will help protect the rights, property or personal safety of Gett, any of our customers or employees, or any member of the general public.
In addition, we may share personal data internally within our family of companies, for the purposes described above. Finally, should Gett undergo any change in control, including by means of merger, acquisition or purchase of all or part of its assets, your personal data may be shared with the parties involved in such event.
7. Which cookies and tracking technologies do we use?
Gett uses certain monitoring and tracking technologies, such as “cookies” and other downloaded data files, including ones offered by our Service Providers. These technologies are used to maintain, provide and improve our processes and operations on an ongoing basis, and in order to provide a better experience to our website visitors and Candidates.
For example, these technologies enable us to better secure our website and services and detect abnormal behaviors, to identify technical issues, and to monitor and improve the overall performance of our services and processes.
