SAES may collect other data from you during any job interviews.

SAES collects and processes only data that is pertinent and does not go beyond the purposes of the processing and, therefore, only the data necessary to evaluate your profile and the opportunity of establishing a working relationship with SAES: we invite you not to communicate unnecessary data which will, in any event, be immediately deleted.

We also ask that you do not communicate to SAES personal data of third parties unless this is strictly necessary to achieve the purposes of the processing: in this case, we remind you to fulfil the legal obligations regarding the protection of personal data and, in particular, to inform the third parties of the communication of their data and obtain their consent, if necessary.
The Data includes personal data and “sensitive” data.

Personal Data
Personal data includes your personal and contact details, data relating to your education and work career, as well as the roles held.

“Sensitive” Data
We define “sensitive” as data that reveals racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, as well as genetic data, biometric data intended to uniquely identify a natural person, data relating to a person’s health or sex life or sexual orientation. Sensitive data corresponds to data belonging to the “particular categories” referred to in the art. 9 of Reg. (EU) no. 679/2016 (so-called GDPR).

SAES processes sensitive data such as, for example: those relating to trade union membership for the purposes of making withholdings and paying the contribution to the indicated trade union; data relating to the state of health (certificates relating to absences due to illness, maternity, accident, data relating to suitability for certain jobs and compulsory start-ups) for the purposes of verifying aptitude for certain jobs, justifying absences, insurance treatments and mandatory or contractual social security measures for accidents at work; data relating to membership of religious organizations for the purposes of permits for religious holidays.

We may collect sensitive data only to the extent that it is necessary to fulfill your obligations and exercise your and SAES’ specific rights in matters of labor law and social security and social protection, as well as for occupational health purposes and assessment of your work capacity and, in the latter case, under the responsibility of a professional subject to professional secrecy (i.e. the competent occupational doctor appointed pursuant to Italian Legislative Decree no. 81/2008, as well as by the nurse at the SAES’s infirmary, who act as data controllers upon written assignment received from SAES). The processing will take place in strict compliance with the general authorization n°1/2016 of the Garante Privacy, as subsequently extended, renewed and/or modified, as well as with the further ethical rules and guarantee measures adopted by the Garante Privacy pursuant to the articles 2-quater and 2-septies of Italian Legislative Decree no. 196/2003 and subsequent amendments.

4. Purpose of processing and related legal basis

Evaluation of your professional profile for the purposes of possible collaboration and/or hiring by SAES

Data will be processed to evaluate your professional profile for the purposes of possible collaboration and/or hiring by SAES.

This processing finds its legal basis in the need to carry out pre-contractual measures adopted at your request.

This processing finds its legal basis in your express consent: in the absence of your consent, we will not be able to transmit your data to the other companies of the SAES Group and, consequently, you will be able to participate in any selection processes initiated by affiliates only by directly transmitting the Your Data to the company of your interest.

In order to transfer your Data to our affiliates based in a third country, we ask you to express a specific consent: in the absence of your consent, we will not be able to transmit your Data to SAES Group companies established outside the European Union and, consequently, you will be able to participate in any selection processes initiated by these companies only by forwarding a specific applications and transmitting your data separately.

7. Data storage periods

Data will be stored and processed for 12 months from receipt on the basis of the legitimate interest of the data controller in the conservation of the candidates’ curricula for the purpose of a possible re-contact within the period of the following year from the conferral of the same: this interest was assessed as prevailing in relation to the data subject’s interest to delete his/her curriculum immediately after the end of the recruitment process (it is reasonable to believe that you have an interest in being contacted again for further professional opportunities).
