U.S. Job Applicant Privacy Notice


Last Updated: May, 18th 2023

This U.S. Job Applicant Privacy Notice (“U.S. Job Applicant Notice”) explains how Dompé US Inc., and its affiliates (collectively, “Dompé,” “we,” “us”, or “our”) collects, uses, discloses, and otherwise processes personal information about our US-based recruits and job applicants. For information on how our affiliate companies process personal information about our EU based recruits and job applicants, please click here.

This U.S. Job Applicant Notice is not a contract and does not create any legal rights or obligations not otherwise provided by law. This U.S. Job Applicant Notice also is not intended to replace other notices or disclosures we may provide to you in connection with your role in our organization, which will supersede any conflicting disclosures contained in this U.S. Job Applicant Notice.


What is Personal Information?

When we use the term “personal information” in this U.S. Job Applicant Privacy Notice, we mean information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, to an individual within the context of the individual acting as a recruit or job applicant of Dompé. It does not include aggregated or de-identified information that is maintained in a form that cannot reasonably be used to infer information about, or otherwise be linked to, a particular individual. Where we maintain deidentified data, we will maintain and use the data in deidentified form and not attempt to reidentify the data except as required or permitted by law.


Our Collection and Use of Personal Information

Job Applicant

Collection of Personal Information

During the recruiting process and when you apply for a job with us, we collect personal information about you, which may include the following professional or employment-related personal information:

Contact Information: such as full name, email address (personal and work), home address, business address, telephone number, and emergency contact information.

Professional History and Qualifications: such as previous employers, positions and work experience, professional licenses, certificates or other qualifications, employment references or referrals, and information relating to potential conflicts with the role the individual is applying or being considered for. By providing us with information about these third parties, you authorize Dompé to contact them for the purposes of reference and verification of the information received.

Education and Training Information: such as highest level of education, schools attended and dates of attendance, degrees, certificates or other educational qualifications earned, and transcripts or training records.

Compensation Information: such as previous or desired salary, bonus, benefits, expenses, and stock or equity grants, as permitted by law.

Equal Opportunity Information: such as age, race, ethnicity, national origin, citizenship, sex, gender identity or transgender status, sexual orientation, religion, disability or accommodation request, or marital or veteran status when an individual chooses to provide them, but this equal opportunity information will not be used in employment-related decisions unless specifically permitted by law.

Background Check and Reference Check Information: When permitted by applicable law, we may choose to conduct a background check and/or a reference check in connection with an individual’s employment such as to verify professional and educational history and qualifications or identify criminal history that may be relevant for a position with us. The results of the background check and/or reference check may include personal information we do not already have about the individual who is the subject of the check.

Other Application and Interview Information: any personal information the individual chooses to share with us in their interview or application, CV, resume, transcripts, or other supporting documentation.

Inferences: We may generate inferences or predictions about the job applicant and their abilities, interests, or preferences based on the other personal information we collect and the interactions we have with them.

Although we often collect the personal information described above directly from our job applicant, we also collect this information from supervisors, colleagues, customers, vendors, publicly available sources, and other third parties they may interact with as members of our job applicant. In addition, we may also collect this information through service providers and other third parties that collect it on our behalf, such as communications providers, payroll providers, and benefits providers.


Use of Personal Information

We use the personal information we collect during the recruiting process and when an individual applies for a job with us to:

− Identify the individual as a potential candidate and review their application for a position with us;

− Verify the information provided to us in connection with their application or received from other sources;

− Determine their eligibility and suitability for the potential position or other opportunities with us;

− Facilitate the recruiting and interview process;

− Communicate with the individual about the status of their application or other opportunities within the Dompé      Group that may be of interest to them, including via email newsletters;

− Assess and improve the performance and success of our recruiting and hiring process;

− Conduct internal investigations, audits, compliance, risk management, problem resolution and security operations;

− Fulfill contractual obligations to recruits, applicants and other third parties; and

− Comply with applicable law, rule, regulation, legal proceeding, and government investigations, including relating to tax reporting and immigration.

Please note that if an individual accepts an offer from us, we may transfer the personal information we collected about them during the recruiting and job application process to their job applicant file with us.


Our Disclosure of Personal Information

We may share your personal information with the following third parties for the purposes described below:

Within Dompé: We share personal information relating to recruits and job applicants within our family of companies for internal administrative purposes and uses that are consistent with this U.S. Job Applicant Notice. For example, the Dompé entity responsible for the job posting may share personal information about an applicant with another Dompé entity that is responsible for our organization-wide recruiting and employment decisions.

Recruiters and Job Application Providers: We often engage recruiters and job application providers to assist us in identifying potential job applicants and processing job applications we receive. In order for these third parties to assist us in the recruiting and job application process, we share personal information about potential and current job applicants with them.

Depending on the function the third party serves, the service provider may process personal information on our behalf or have access to personal information while performing functions on our behalf.

Business Transaction or Reorganization: We may take part in or be involved with a corporate business transaction, such as a merger, acquisition, joint venture, or financing or sale of Dompé assets. We may disclose personal information to a third-party during negotiation of, in connection with, or as an asset in such a corporate business transaction. Personal information may also be disclosed in the event of insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership.

No Sales or Targeted Advertising

Except as otherwise described in our Privacy Notice in connection with job applicants acting in their capacity as website visitors, we do not sell personal information about individuals acting in their capacity as job applicants, and we do not share or otherwise disclose personal information about individuals acting in their capacity as job applicants to third parties for the purpose of displaying advertisements that are selected based on personal information obtained or inferred over time from an individual’s activities across businesses or distinctly branded websites, applications, or other services (otherwise known as “targeted advertising” or “cross-context behavioral advertising”).


Sensitive Information

The following personal information elements we collect about our job candidates may be classified as “sensitive” under certain privacy laws ("sensitive information"):

We use this sensitive information for the purposes set forth in the Our Collection and Use of Personal Information section above. 

We do not sell sensitive information about individuals acting in their capacity as job applicants, and we do not share or otherwise disclose sensitive information about individuals acting in their capacity as job applicants for the purpose of targeted advertising, nor use such information for the purpose of inferring characteristics about our job applicants. 


Retention of Personal Information

We retain personal information only for as long as is reasonably necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected. However, if necessary, we may retain personal information for longer periods of time, until set retention periods and deadlines expire, for instance where we are required to do so in accordance with legal, tax, and accounting requirements set by a legislature, regulator, or other government authority.

To determine the appropriate duration of the retention of personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of personal information, and if we can attain our objectives by other means, as well as our legal, regulatory, tax, accounting, and other applicable obligations. 

We will retain your personal information no longer than twenty-four (24) months from your last date of access to the platform. After two years of account inactivity, your personal information will be deleted. In any case, you may delete your account at any time.

As a result, we may require requests to include name, email address and physical address. We may at times need to request additional personal information from you, taking into consideration our relationship with you and the sensitivity of your request.
