  1. Scope of personal data we collect, the purpose and legal basis for processing that data

The scope of personal data we process depends on what information you provide in connection with your application, especially: name, surname, email, phone number, work experience and education. It includes the content of documents, information on how you submit them, your feedback on the recruitment process as well as the content of our possible further communication and conclusions from the recruitment process. Provision of all data is voluntary, but if you decide not to provide us with some of them, we might not be able to assess your application, and as a consequence you might be excluded from the recruitment process.

Our processing may also include information we collect directly or through a third party, such as a recruitment agency, e.g. if we are conducting background checks (including upon request of our clients or pursuant to a legal obligation) in order to verify your personal suitability for a certain position. Such information may include for example output of background checks, other information publicly available, internal notes further to your interview with us.

We process your personal data in line with applicable data privacy requirements including, when legally required, basing the processing on an appropriate legal basis. Such legal basis can be, for example, your consent, a legal obligation to which we are subject, or another legal basis as regulated by applicable laws.

The purposes for which we are processing your personal data are:

  1. to assess your candidacy in respect of requirements for the position for which you have submitted your application, and/or for future recruitments for which a similar skill set and experience is required; this may also include a background check and the screening of relevant sanctions and restrictions lists;
  2. to verify your identity;
  3. to share your application with the Globallogic company that is best suited to consider your application and hire you;
  4. if you meet the requirements for a position – to present you an offer of employment and to conclude a contract;
  5. to demonstrate that the recruitment process is compliant with applicable laws;
  6. to ensure safety of our property – we may introduce video monitoring (CCTV) in our offices, placing the cameras in places requiring special protection, including the entrances to offices and communication routes. Thus, if you visit our offices e.g. for an interview, we may process your image captured on the video recordings. The monitored areas are appropriately designated and the recordings are stored for the time necessary for operational purposes depending on local specifics (unless they constitute or may need to constitute evidence in legal proceedings, in such case we may keep them until the proceedings have been closed).

Where legally allowed, some of the personal data provided by you, for example your name, surname contact address and feedback, may be used by us also for operational and marketing purposes, such as sending you thank you notes, seasonal greetings, satisfaction surveys, etc. or improve our recruitment process. 

We may also process your data for statistical purposes, in relation to defense against claims and to share your personal data with our group member companies listed here.

  1. Retention period

We will process your data for no more than 3 years, unless earlier you withdraw your consent or the purpose of data processing is fulfilled.

The exception to the above rule is when you are in the UK or Mexico and you decide to apply to a single vacancy only. In such case we will process your data for 6 months.

The above retention periods are counted from the last activity in your candidate profile: you applying to a vacancy, interview with you; presenting you with an offer and closing the recruitment process. 

If we hire you, we will continue retaining your data for the duration of the employment relationship and possibly thereafter in compliance with local laws, as described in the applicable Employee Privacy Notice.

The periods described above may be extended as appropriate in the event of any claims or court proceedings – for the duration of such proceedings and their settlement – and if the law obliges us in certain cases to process such data for a longer period of time.

  1. Who has access to your personal data

GlobalLogic operates internationally and, therefore, personal data may be used in countries outside of your country, which may not have data protection regulations as stringent as those in your country. We will transfer your data to third countries only in accordance with applicable privacy laws. This includes in particular data transfers to countries in which GlobalLogic conducts business, or has a service provider, for the purposes set out in this document. 

GlobalLogic applies all required safeguards, including standard data protection clauses adopted pursuant to decisions of the European Commission or relevant data protection authorities, where needed. We may also transfer your data to a country that is deemed ‘adequate’ by the European Commission in relation to data protection pursuant to the GDPR. 

If you are based in Argentina, Chile, Israel or Ukraine – by taking part in our recruitment process you also consent to such data transfers. 

Access to your personal data will be given exclusively to appropriately authorized employees or associates of GlobalLogic, vendors, partners, consultant or auditors and only to the extent necessary to perform their responsibilities. Your data may be transferred, for example, to providers of hosting services or ICT services, other entities that provide to us technical or organizational assistance and support of our recruitment process, including communication with candidates (e.g. recruitment agencies) or distribution of invitations / documentation etc. (e.g. couriers). GlobalLogic may also be required – if there is a legal basis to do so – to provide certain information to public authorities, for purposes related to proceedings they are conducting.

Our staff may work directly with our clients, that is why our client may be also involved in the recruitment process. In the final stages of the recruitment process we may share your data with our clients who could potentially work with you in the future.

  1. Local regulations


This section applies to the processing of personal data by a GlobalLogic group company that has its seat or establishment within the UK. In case of any doubts please contact us at  

Recruitment via third party (supplier, outsourcing/recruitment company, etc.) 

If we received your personal data from a third party that you work with or that you applied with, the name of that party will be specified in our email correspondence with you.  

The scope of data processed by GlobalLogic depends on the data you provided the third party with and includes, in particular, data identifying you, as well as information on your education, experience, professional qualifications, and conclusions from the recruitment process. 

In case you get involved in one of our projects via third party, we will also process data on your access to our buildings and systems, information about the project you are working on, your tasks and assessment of your work.

We may process some of your data (name, surname, email and the third party we got your data from) due to the contractual obligations towards that third party. 

Source of personal data 

We may also receive your personal data from our staff who may recommend you for a vacancy (“referral”).  In order to start a recruitment process, GlobalLogic will confirm if you consent to participate in it. If we do not receive confirmation within 5 business days, we will delete your data. Otherwise, we will store your personal data in line with retention periods specified in this notice. 

Who has access to your personal data?

If you were recommended as a referral, the person who recommended you may receive information on the stage of your recruitment process.

If our client is involved in your recruitment process, we will inform you each time before we transfer your data to them. If you do not agree, please object to our action immediately. Please note, however, that if you make such an objection, we will not be able to further process your application.

What is a legal basis of processing?

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is your consent (Article 6(1)(a) UK GDPR) and taking steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract with you (Article 6.1(b) UK GDPR) or the relevant provisions of national data protection legislation. 

In case we are processing your data for operational or marketing purposes, the legal basis for such processing is our legitimate interest (Article 6(1)(f) UK GDPR) – maintaining our relationship and promoting GlobalLogic brand – or, where we have obtained  your explicit consent for processing your data for operational or marketing purposes, your consent (Article 6(1)(a) UK GDPR).

Our legitimate interest (Article 6(1)(f) UK GDPR) is also the legal basis for processing your personal data for statistical purposes, for defense against claims, for sharing your personal data with our group member companies and/or our clients involved in the recruitment process or due to contractual obligations towards third parties.

To ensure the best standards, each application is verified by our recruiter. Please note, that considering the need to handle many applications and our legitimate interest, as part of our recruitment process we use the OCR technology for more efficient introduction of applications to our system, followed by an internal search engine that allows us to find suitable applications. If you do not agree to such actions, please do not take part in our recruitment process.

The processing of your personal data for background checks and screenings of relevant sanctions and restrictions lists is based on our legal obligation (Article 6(1)c UK GDPR) where we are legally obliged to run these checks or screenings. In other cases, we process your personal data on basis of your consent (Article 6(1)(a) UK GDPR) or legitimate interest (Article 6(1)(f) UK GDPR) – ensuring the integrity, security and compliance of GlobalLogic and its group companies and business partners with their regulatory requirements.
