(iii) Candidate’s section


The Website allows you to apply for a job with CAPZA. In this context, the communication of your Personal Data is a necessary condition for the conclusion of a possible contract, so if you decide not to provide CAPZA with your Personal Data necessarily required, your application will be rejected. In order to process your application CAPZA Processes your Personal Data for two purposes:


1.Firstly, CAPZA Processes your Personal Data for the proper implementation of its recruitment process.


For this purpose, CAPZA Processes the following Personal Data:

  • Identification data;
  • Contact data;
  • Data relating to your professional life;
  • Content of the application message.


The legal basis for this Processing is the legitimate interest of CAPZA, which is to carry out and manage its recruitment activities.


2. In addition, if your application is not successful, CAPZA may wish to keep your application file in order to contact you again if a subsequent job offer is likely to match your profile.


To this end, CAPZA will inform you of its wish and you will have the possibility to request the deletion of your file. If you do not object to the storage, CAPZA shall Process the aforementioned Personal Data in order to build up and manage its candidates database.


At the time of collection of the Personal Data, the legal basis for the Processing is the legitimate interest of CAPZA to carry out and manage its recruitment operations. Subsequently, if CAPZA wishes to keep your application file for more than two (2) years after the last contact on your initiative, your consent, which is then requested by CAPZA, will become the legal basis for the Processing.


CAPZA works with the service provider TALEEZ for the management of applications. By applying on the Website, you agree to share your Personal Data with TALEEZ, which acts as a subcontractor. The privacy policy of TALEEZ is available in the application tab of its site.



4. Recipients of your Personal Data


CAPZA may disclose Personal Data in any jurisdiction to:


  • Other CAPZA members;
  • Professional advisors (attorneys, consultants, etc.) or independent contractors who provide goods and services to any member of CAPZA (Custodians, banks, computer system providers, marketing service providers, etc.);
  • Any person to whom disclosure is authorized or required by applicable local or foreign laws or regulations.


These transmissions of Personal Data are always carried out in compliance with the regulations in force and only if they are necessary.



5. International Transfers of Personal Data


If the operation of its services requires it, CAPZA may have to deal with contacts located outside the country in which you reside or in which services are provided to you or to the organization or entity for which you work.


If the contact person of CAPZA is located outside the European Union, it is possible that the regulations in force are not equivalent to those applied within the European Union. In this case, CAPZA guarantees an adequate level of protection of Personal Data by ensuring that the country to which the Personal Data is transferred is considered by the European Commission to provide an adequate level of protection, or by putting in place contractual clauses that the European Commission considers to provide an adequate level of protection.



6. Retention of Personal Data


CAPZA keeps your Personal Data for the time necessary :


  • for the purpose for which it was collected;
  • to comply with legal, regulatory, accounting, reporting or internal policy requirements;
  • to exercise or defend legal rights.


Thus, the duration of retention depends primarily on the purpose of the Processing and in particular, with regard to the use of the Site, four particular cases of retention of your Personal Data are to be noted:


  1. Follow-up of questions via the contact form of the Website: CAPZA will not keep your Personal Data beyond five (5) years after the last contact at your initiative.

Candidate’s section: the Personal Data necessary for the management of applications are kept at least until the end of the recruitment process, or until the time necessary to verify an unsolicited application. If you do not want your file to be kept, CAPZA will delete it as soon as it is technically possible. If you do not request the deletion of your application file, CAPZA will keep it for two (2) years after the last contact on your initiative. After this period, you will be asked for your explicit consent to keep your file and you will be informed of the planned retention period. By applying on the Website, you agree to share your Personal Data with TALEEZ, which, as a subcontractor, may also retain your Personal Data. TALEEZ’s privacy policy is available in the application tab of its site.
