We recognize that privacy is important when you apply for a job at reMarkable, and we are fully committed to respect and safeguard your privacy and data protection rights throughout the recruitment process. You trust us with your personal information and we are responsible for living up to this trust placed in us every day.
We have developed this Applicant Privacy Notice to:
- explain how we collect, use and safeguard your personal data, and what rights you have, and
- demonstrate reMarkable’s commitment and accountability to protect and respect your privacy and your rights.
When processing your personal data, we comply with applicable national legislation, including the GDPR, as well as mandatory regulations and instructions issued by the competent authorities.
What personal data do we collect about you?
When you apply for a position at reMarkable, you will be asked to provide certain personal information such as your name and contact information, your education, work skills, employment history etc. You are also able to upload documents such as CVs and cover letters, containing personal data. For certain positions, you may also be asked to provide a declaration of interests if the position requires a high level of impartiality in the performance of their duties.
In some cases, you may be asked to take a cognitive ability test, personality test or complete a case assessment. We will process the results from these tests in order to make hiring decisions.
We may also collect information about you from other sources. These include:
- publicly available sources or registers such as LinkedIn, GitHub, StackOverflow, Google or Facebook, for instance if we decide to do a background check later on in the recruitment process.
- information from referrals that you have provided to us.
How do we use the information?
When you apply for a position at reMarkable, we will use the information to:
- evaluate your job application,
- review your qualifications and making hiring decisions,
- communicate with you, for instance providing information about potential interview dates, and
- prepare basic information material for use in the event you get hired.
In the above cases we process your personal data because it is necessary in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into an employment contract according to article 6.1(b) of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (the GDPR).
Processing may also be necessary for compliance with legal and regulatory obligations according to article 6.1(c) of the GDPR, such as compliance with anti-discrimination laws.
In order for us to make hiring decisions, you may be asked to take a cognitive ability test, a personality test or a case assessment. These tests may be conducted by third parties, which are data controllers with regard to the processing of personal data that these tests entail. However, the results from tests will be shared with us, and we are data controllers with regard to this information. The processing of personal data in this case will be based on a legitimate interest pursued by reMarkable according to article 6.1(f) of the GDPR. You may object to being part of these tests and also object to us getting the results from these tests. As a result, however, you might then not be eligible for the applied position.
At a later stage in the recruitment process, you may also be asked to provide a declaration of interests. This is done for certain categories of applicants whose positions require a high level of impartiality in the performance of their duties. The personal data you provide allows us to ascertain whether there is a conflict of interest at hand, and outline adequate mitigation actions. The processing of personal data in this case will be based on a legitimate interest pursued by reMarkable according to article 6.1(f) of the GDPR. You may object to the processing of personal data for this purpose. As a result, however, you may then not be eligible for the applied position.
You may also be subject to a pre-employment screening (PES) later on in the recruitment process. If so, additional information about the processing of personal data that this will entail will be given to you prior to the screening. The processing of personal data in this case will be based on a legitimate interest pursued by reMarkable according to article 6.1(f) of the GDPR. You may object to the processing of personal data for this purpose. As a result, however, you might then not be eligible for the applied position.
Additionally, we may also process your personal data for the following purposes:
- Producing recruitment statistics;
- Resolving disputes and/or as a part of a legal defense, if necessary;
- In order to ensure the information security of all our Services and communications networks.
In the above cases the processing of personal data is necessary for the purposes of a legitimate interest pursued by reMarkable according to article 6.1(f) of the GDPR.
Finally, we may also process your personal data for any other purpose you have given your consent to according to article 6.1(a) of the GDPR; for instance, we may want to retain your application for future job opportunities. In these cases consent will be requested separately and defined in more detail at the time of the request.
In all of the above cases, we process personal and data only to the extent necessary for the purpose, always taking into account the protection of your privacy.
