CBR may sometimes be required to disclose your information to external third parties such as local labour authorities, courts and tribunals, regulatory bodies, and/or law enforcement agencies for the purpose of complying with applicable laws and regulations, or in response to legal process.
We will also share your personal information with other third parties if we have your consent (for example, if you have given us permission to contact your referees), or to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or to protect against harm to the rights, property, or safety of CBR, our users, applicants, candidates, employees, or the public or as otherwise required by law.
It is your responsibility to obtain consent from referees before providing their personal information to CBR.
CBR takes appropriate steps to protect information about you that is collected, processed, and stored as part of the application and recruitment process.
CBR will retain your personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfill the purpose for which this data was collected and any other permitted linked purpose (such as in the event of an unsuccessful application process, to find another potentially suitable role).
We retain this information for various reasons, including in case we face a legal challenge in respect of a recruitment decision, to consider you for other current or future jobs at CBR, and to help us better understand, analyze, and improve our recruitment processes.
If your application with CBR is successful, the relevant data you have shared with us will become part of your employee file.
In the event of an unsolicited or unsuccessful application, in order to be considered for future job vacancies, we will keep your data on file for one year. At the end of this period, we will either seek your consent to renew the period to store your personal data for an additional one-year period or delete and/or destroy your data, unless you have already withdrawn your consent to our processing of your data, in which case it will be deleted or destroyed upon your withdrawal of consent.
If you do not want us to retain your information for consideration for other roles or want us to update it, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, however, that we may retain some information if required by law or as necessary to protect ourselves from legal claims.
