Expressing an interest in working for Gemalto

This section explains how your information will be used when you submit information via this site.

The provision of your personal data is optional: however, please be aware that your refusal to provide us with your personal data or to process them thereafter may result in the data controller not being able to carry out any activity related to your recruitment in relation to this online environment.

Who can access your information?

Access to your information is limited by need. All recruitment staff within the Gemalto corporate group worldwide have access to your profile on the database and are able to match your details to current vacancies.

We may need to share your information with third parties but only for the following reasons:

  • When it is necessary to involve a third-party service provider in order to facilitate or extend recruitment services
  • When explicitly requested by you.
  • As required by a court order or any other legal or regulatory requirement.

Gemalto does not collect or compile personal data or information obtained by this site for dissemination or sale to outside parties for consumer marketing purposes or host mailings on behalf of third parties.

Why do we need your information?

Your information will be used by Gemalto for administering the global recruitment program of its corporate member. This will include planning and monitoring recruitment campaigns and notify you from time to time of current vacancies.

Your personal profile and application progress.

You have a responsibility to ensure you submit accurate information and keep it up to date. This can be done via the "Candidate Portal." The Candidate Portal requires a valid e-mail address as a login, along with other information, some of which is mandatory. Mandatory information will be marked accordingly. Your email address allows us to communicate with you if your qualifications and/or preferences match job opportunities or if you opt to receive automated notifications of job postings at any member of the Gemalto corporate group.

Your personal profile also makes it possible for you to access the recruitment section of the site to monitor the progress of your application or amend your details should you wish to do so.

Applying for a job outside of your home country

If you wish to apply for a job in a country outside of your home country, we may need to ask you questions that are specific to the country where the job is located. This is because in certain countries, before we can offer someone a job, we have to ask certain additional questions. These questions will be relevant and necessary for the job advertised and consistent with our legal obligations.

You may wish to forward a job on this site to a friend. You can do this by clicking on the "Send this job to a friend" link, which can be found in each job description. We will require your e-mail address and the e-mail address of the recipient, your friend.

In addition, when we contact your friend, he/she will be provided with full details of how their information will be used, specifically in relation to their rights and details of the entity acting as a data controller, in line with this notice.
