Last updated: 2019/12/18

At Surfshark Ltd. we understand the importance of information security, thus, here you can find our Privacy Notice for Recruitment Purposes (hereinafter – Privacy Notice), which describes how we process data in the context of recruitment.

If you have any questions or comments about Surfshark Ltd.’s processing of your personal data, you are always welcome to contact us at [email protected].

Data you provide us with

When you apply to our open positions or contact us with an inquiry about the career options at Surfshark Ltd., we process your data for recruitment purposes. We do that on the basis of your consent that you affirmatively give us when you provide us with information about you.

You may provide us with your data through our website’s career page, online job site, via email, in person at interviews and/or by other methods. This could include your personal data, such as name, email address, qualifications, information relating to your employment history, skills and experience, etc.

Data from other sources

During the recruitment process we may look through your career-related social media accounts, for example, LinkedIn, but only as far as it is relevant to our open position. We may also process other career-related information about you provided to us as references by your former employers, colleagues or other acquaintances. We would do that on the basis of our legitimate interest to fill an open position and evaluate whether, based on your qualities, you would be a good fit for it.

Data sharing

We may share your data with other companies, which are related to us, if we see that you could be a great fit for an open position they have.

In order to manage our processes efficiently we may also share your data with our third-party service providers, such as email providers, web hosting providers, HR management tools providers and others. In any case, they can access the data only as much as it needed for the provision of their services.

If there comes up a lawful basis for doing that, we may disclose your data to other third-parties.

Information security measures

We take information security very seriously. We implement appropriate measures to protect the information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access or disclosure. Nonetheless, given the nature of communications and information processing technology, we cannot guarantee that information, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care, will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others.

Are you from California?

If you are from California, then, firstly, rest assured that we do NOT sell your data.

Please also note that you may have some additional rights:

  • to ask of us to delete your personal data;
  • to get a copy of your personal data processed by us.

Are you from the European Economic Area (EEA)?

If you are from the EEA, here you can find some additional information that could be relevant to you.

We are based outside the EEA and we may have third-party service providers that are located outside the EEA as well. These locations may have different data protection rules compared to the place of your habitual residence. Nonetheless, we ensure an adequate level of data protection, for instance, by adhering to the EU-US Privacy Shield or entering into the EU standard contractual clauses.

We may retain and use your data for as long as it might be necessary to fulfill our current and future recruitment goals (so that we could get in touch with you when a new position opens up and we see that you could be perfect for it).

Depending on the circumstances, we may also retain the data for a period that is required for fulfillment of our obligations, such as record keeping, and for us to be able to raise a claim or defend ourselves from one.

Furthermore, depending on your specific situation and the circumstances, you may have some additional rights:

  • right to get a copy of your personal data processed by us;
  • right of rectification of your personal data;
  • right of erasure of your personal data;
  • right to restrict the processing of your personal data;
  • data portability;
  • right to object to the processing of your personal data;
  • right to withdraw your consent.

If you would like to exercise any of these rights or have any questions or comments, you can always contact us at [email protected]. We believe that if there are any issues, we can always solve them together, however, you could also get in touch with your local data protection authority.
