If you are a resident of California, please see also the California Consumer Privacy Statement for Candidates that describes the personal information collected consistent with the relevant notice requirements of the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018.
By making available your Candidate Data, you confirm that:
- You have reviewed this Notice;
- You have provided any notices and obtained any consents needed to provide information concerning others (e.g., information about employment references); and
- Your Candidate Data may be transferred and processed worldwide, including in the US and other countries that may not be deemed to provide the same level of data protection as your home country, for the purposes and in the manner specified in this Notice.
We will process Candidate Data in accordance with this Notice, unless in conflict with requirements of applicable law, in which case applicable law will prevail. You are under no statutory or contractual obligation to provide data to TIBCO during the talent acquisition process, but if do not provide certain information, we may not be able to process your application.
This Notice does not form part of any contract of employment offered to candidates hired by US.
Candidate Data is identifiable information that an individual makes available to Us in connection with the talent acquisition process. Candidate Data may include a variety of information, such as candidate status, work history/job data, education, compensation, employer feedback, questionnaire results, contact information, previous addresses or names, additional information provided by the candidate (e.g., a cover letter), driver’s license number as required for certain positions, references, and criminal history where permitted by law.
Processing refers to any action performed on Candidate Data, such as collecting, recording, organizing, storing, transferring, modifying, using, disclosing, or deleting.
Sensitive Candidate Data is Candidate Data concerning nationality or citizenship, race or ethnic origin, criminal history, or trade union membership. We do not request or consider information concerning religion, or sexual orientation, or political opinions in connection with talent acquisition.
You may use various electronic and paper methods to submit Candidate Data to Us. The primary method is through our online application processing application (Hirebridge), through interviews and other direct interactions with you. In addition, to the extent permitted by law, We may collect Candidate Data from third parties, for example, from recruiters, in connection with a background, credit or employment check or an employment reference (subject to your consent where required by law), from a recruiting or other publicly-available web site, such as your professional LinkedIn profile, your professional profile on your current employer’s website, speaker bios on the websites of professional conferences where you have spoken, or articles you have published.
Processing and Retention
In addition to using Candidate Data for the position for which you have applied, We may retain and use your Candidate Data to consider you for other positions. If you do not want to be considered for other positions or would like to have your Candidate Data removed, you may contact Us as specified under Inquiries, Complaints and Objections below. Unless required for tax or other legal purposes or in connection with employment as specified above, or some other retention period is required by local law, we will retain your personal information for a period of 12 months after we have communicated to you our decision about whether to appoint you to a role to which you have applied. We retain your personal information for the purposes specified in this section, including without limitation so that we can show, in the event of a legal claim, that we have not discriminated against candidates on prohibited grounds and that we have conducted our talent acquisition and hiring processes in compliance with applicable law.
Sharing with Third Parties
We may share your personal information internally within Cloud Software Group and/or its affiliates for the purposes described in this notice.
We may transfer Candidate Data to external third-party service providers performing certain services on behalf of Cloud Software Group. Third-party service providers include talent acquisition operations, communication and verification providers used for the purposes of managing, coordinating, documenting and analyzing our talent acquisition efforts, facilitating communications, marketing and employment verification. Third-party service providers may also include external advisors (e.g., auditors and legal advisors), insurance carriers, benefits providers, and internal compliance and investigation teams (including external advisers appointed to conduct internal investigations). Such third-party service providers have access to Candidate Data solely for the purpose of performing the services specified in the applicable service contract, and We require the service providers to undertake security measures consistent with the protections specified in this Notice.
We may be required to disclose certain Candidate Data to other third parties (1) as required by law, regulation or legal process (such as a court order or subpoena) in or outside of your home country; (2) to law enforcement authorities or other government officials to comply with a legitimate legal request; (3) to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights, and in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual fraud, illegal activity, security or technical issues; or (4) in an emergency where the health or safety of a candidate or other individual may be endangered. In addition, in the event of a re-organization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, or other transfer or disposition of all or any portion of Our business, We may transfer Candidate Data to successor entities or parties.
Sensitive Candidate Data
We may perform background and criminal checks where permitted by law, and may process other Sensitive Candidate Data, such as citizenship or nationality information or health information, in order to evaluate a potential reasonable accommodation in the talent acquisition and hiring process where requested, for equal opportunity monitoring, when relevant for a position and permitted by law. We process personal data for these purposes when we are required to do so by law or if you have given your explicit consent.
If We intend to collect Sensitive Personal Data from third parties, you will be provided notice and the opportunity to consent. If you have a disability and would like Us to consider a reasonable accommodation, you may provide that information during the talent acquisition process. We do not intend to collect any Sensitive Candidate Data from you unless specifically requested for the purposes described above.
