Any Personal Data you provide to Gunnebo in relation to a job vacancy will be processed in accordance with our Recruitment Notice

The legal basis for Gunnebo processing your Personal Data

In order to comply with applicable data privacy laws, Gunnebo is required to set out the legal basis for the processing of your Personal Data. In accordance with the purposes for which we collect and use your Personal Data, as set out above, the legal basis for Gunnebo processing your Personal Data will typically be one of the following:

  • your consent;
  • the performance of a contract that we have in place with you or other individuals;
  • Gunnebo or our third parties' legitimate business interests; or
  • compliance with our legal obligations.

Who we share your Personal Data with

Gunnebo may share your Personal Data with people within the company who have a "need to know" that data for business or legal reasons, for example, in order to carry out an administrative function such as processing an invoice, or to direct a query that you have submitted to the relevant department within Gunnebo.

We may disclose your Personal Data to third parties including the authorities, Gunnebo's advisors, suppliers of IT services and third parties engaged by Gunnebo for the purpose of providing services requested by you; to protect any intellectual property rights in any materials displayed on or otherwise available from Gunnebo's website; for the purposes of seeking legal or other professional advice; to respond to a legal request or comply with a legal obligation; and to enforce Gunnebo's website Terms and Conditions of Use.

We may disclose your Personal Data to third parties in the event that we sell, buy or merge any business or assets, including to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets.

Because Gunnebo operates globally, we may share the Personal Data you submit to us with any entity within the Gunnebo group worldwide. These entities are required to maintain the confidentiality of your data and are restricted from using it for any purpose other than the purposes set out in this Policy.

We may decide to allow users to share comments, postings, testimonials, or other information. If you choose to submit such information to us, the information that you submit may be available generally to the public. Information that you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them.

Finally, we may share non-Personal Data with other third parties that are not described above. When we do so we may aggregate or de-identify the information so that a third party would not be likely to link data to you, your computer, or your device. Aggregation means that we combine the non-Personal Data of numerous people together so that the data does not relate to any one person. De-identify means that we attempt to remove or change certain pieces of information that might be used to link data to a particular person.

Transfers of Personal Data

Please note that any person to whom Gunnebo may disclose your Personal Data under this Policy may be situated in a country other than your own and that such country may provide a lower level of data protection requirements than your own country. By agreeing to this Policy, you consent to the transfer of your Personal Data to a country other than your own.

Whenever we transfer Personal Data across borders, we take legally required steps to ensure that adequate safeguards are in place to protect your Personal Data and to make sure it is treated in accordance with this Policy. If you are located in the EEA or the UK, you can request a copy of the safeguards which we have put in place to protect your Personal Data and privacy rights in these circumstances, using the Contact Us form available on our website http://www.gunnebo.com/find-contact-us/contact-form or by contacting us at privacy@gunnebo.com .

Security

Gunnebo takes all reasonable technical and organisational security measures to protect Personal Data from accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss and unauthorised access, destruction, misuse, modification or disclosure.

Records retention

Your Personal Data is not kept for longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it is collected. This means that data and records (including Personal Data) are destroyed or erased from our systems when no longer required. The amount of time that records are kept for varies depending upon the type of Personal Data they contain.

Applicable data privacy laws give rights to individuals in respect of Personal Data that organisations hold about them.  If you wish to:

  • request a copy of the Personal Data that we hold about you; or
  • request that we rectify, delete, or limit the processing of your Personal Data,

please submit your written request to Gunnebo AB via privacy@gunnebo.com
