  1. Personal data subject to processing 

The personal data processed are those provided by the Job applicant (i.e., name, surname, e-mail address, Curriculum Vitae, Cover letter, telephone number, position, and LinkedIn URL) while fulfilling the form “Leave your application” that is available on the “Work with us”/“Careers” section, as well as the personal data contained in the CV that can be uploaded on the above-mentioned section of the Website. 

In order to send the Job application, the Data Controller does not require or ask for personal data that belong to special categories, which mean personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, and/or genetic data, biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person, data concerning health or data concerning a natural person’s sex life or sexual orientation. 

If the Job applicant autonomously decides to provide personal data that belong to special categories in the CV, he/she must insert a formula similar to the following in order to allow the processing of those data: “I hereby authorize the processing of my personal data belong to special categories present in the curriculum vitae in accordance with Legislative Decree 30 June 2003, n. 196 and of the GDPR (EU Regulation 2016/679)”. 

Please note that the User is not expected or required to register on the Website in order to apply for the job. The Job applicant, therefore, will not have a personal account in which data and information referring to the same will be stored and accessible for consultation and/or modification.

The Data Controller shall process personal data in compliance with the Applicable Law, assuming that they refer to the Job applicant or to third parties who have expressly authorised the Job applicant to provide them or whose personal data the Job applicant was entitled to provide. With respect to these assumptions, the User undertakes to indemnify and hold harmless the Data Controller from any dispute, claim or request for compensation for damage caused by the processing of personal data that may be received from such third parties.

  1. Purposes and legal basis of the processing

The personal data of the Job applicant shall be processed for the following purposes:




Recruiting new personnel in order to satisfy the Controller’s needs. 

The implementation of pre-contractual measures taken at the Job Applicant’s request and/or the contract to which he/she is a party [Article 6, (1)(b) of the GDPR]. 

If the Job applicant autonomously decides to provide in the CV personal data belonging to special categories, the legal basis is the consent that the Job applicant has given to the processing of his or her personal data [Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR].

Complying with legal obligations to which the Data Controller is bound, included to respond to any requests to exercise the User’s rights as a data subject under current data protection legislation.

  1. Consequences of failure to provide personal data

Failure to provide the personal data, in whole or in part, may determine the impossibility to send the job application and, therefore, to participate to the recruiting process.

Consent to the processing of personal data belonging to special categories is always optional and not solicited. These personal data will only be evaluated to verify whether the candidate belongs to any protected categories. Therefore, failure to provide these personal data will have no consequences other than the impossibility of verifying the candidate's belonging of any protected categories.

In particular, the Website functionality is provided on HTTPS encrypted connection and personal data are collected, filed and stored on secure servers, protected by firewalls and physically located within the European Union.
