How we store your personal data


We take appropriate measures to ensure that all your personal data is kept secure including security measures to prevent personal data from being accidentally lost, or used or accessed in an unauthorised way. We limit access to your personal data to those who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secured. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your data transmitted through any online means, therefore any transmission remains at your own risk.

Where we store your personal data

We store your personal data in our own systems. The data are stored in the United Kingdom or the European Union.

The data that we collect from you and process using Greenhouse’s services may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. By submitting your personal data, you do not object to this transfer, storing or processing.

In particular, your data may be accessible to i) Greenhouse’s staff in the USA or ii) may be stored by Greenhouse’s hosting service provider on servers in the USA as well as in the EU. The USA does not have the same data protection laws as the United Kingdom and EEA. The personal data shall be securely transferred upon the standard contractual clauses for data transfers outside the EEA, approved by the European Commission, and data processor agreements which have been signed between TransferGo and Greenhouse Software, Inc., also its overseas group companies, and between Greenhouse Software, Inc. and each of its data processors. These data processor agreements are designed to help safeguard your privacy rights and give you remedies in the unlikely event of a misuse of your personal data.

How long we keep your personal data

The date of the end of selection is considered the date of conclusion of the employment contract for a specific position or our decision to terminate the selection.

At the end of the data storage period your personal data will be deleted. If you withdraw your consent to process personal data, they will be deleted immediately after the withdrawal of consent, even if the data storage period has not yet expired.
