Privacy Policy for Job Applicants


EUROCAE is aware of its obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) transposed into French Law on 20 June 2018 and is committed to processing your data securely and transparently.

The protection of your privacy and personal sata is an important concern, to which we pay special attention throughout our recruitment processes.

We may collect this data

  • directly for the information you would normally put in a CV or application form, and any cover letter. It also includes notes made by our selection panel during a selection interview. We may collect further information from you as part of the recruitment process, for example reference details or right to work status.
  • indirectly for those personal data that you have made publicly available from professional social media or recruitment firms.

If you are offered and accept employment with EUROCAE, the information collected during the application and recruitment process will be part of your employment record, otherwise we will keep the information only for 6 months.



Your data will be shared with colleagues within the organisation, where it is necessary for them to undertake their duties. This includes, for example, the recruitment panel for assessing your suitability for a role and the HR department for maintaining personnel records.

Data may be shared with third parties in the following instances:

  • with the referees you provide in order to obtain references as part of the recruitment process
  • with external recruitment firms when they are used as part of the recruitment process.



We are aware of the requirement to ensure your data is protected against accidental loss or disclosure, destruction and abuse. We use technical and organizational security measures to guard against such.

Your personal data will be stored in secure IT systems with access restricted to those who need to view it. Any hard copy data will be stored securely in a locked filing cabinet.

Where we share your data with third parties, we provide written instructions to them to ensure that your data is held securely and in line with GDPR requirements. Third parties must implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the security of your data.



In line with data protection principles, we only keep your data as long as we need it.

Data collected as part of the recruitment process will be kept for no longer than 6 months from the date a decision is made to reject your application. This is to allow EUROCAE to respond appropriately to any claims made against us given the time limits for making such claims.



No decision will be made about you solely on the basis of automated decision making (where a decision is taken about you using an electronic system without human involvement), which has a significant impact on you.
