IPXO processes the personal data you have provided to us by submitting your job application and personal data that are collected from third parties via social media, an online search, and other sources, which may include the following personal data categories:
- identification, picture, and contact information,
- education information,

- references and referrals,
- your expected employment terms and conditions,
- information about interaction and communication with us,
- information necessary to comply with legal and regulatory requirements (including citizenship, visa, and work permit information),
- other information you provide to us.
You should only submit personal data about yourself in your job application and relevant materials you choose to provide to us, to the extent such information is relevant for the specific position you are applying for. Please do not share with us information that is not necessary for IPXO’s recruitment process, especially – sensitive information.
Recipients of your personal data
We may disclose personal data about you to certain third-party recipients, such as intra-group companies or service providers, in relation to the recruitment process. Such parties will only process personal data about you on behalf of IPXO and in accordance with the instructions given by IPXO. Thus, these third-party recipients are not permitted to process your personal data for their own purposes. IPXO uses certain service providers (processors) that process your personal data on our behalf.
We may disclose personal data to courts, governmental or law enforcement authorities to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims or other complaints. We can also respond to legal requests when we believe the response is required by law in that jurisdiction.
International data transfer
Since we operate as part of a global business, we may transfer, store, or process your personal data in a country different from where you reside. Your personal data may be processed in countries that are not subject to an adequacy decision by the European Commission or your local legislature or regulator and that may not provide for the same level of data protection as your jurisdiction. In these instances, we put in place appropriate safeguards (such as the Standard Contractual Clauses) to ensure that your personal data is adequately protected.
Storage of your personal data
IPXO will store personal data about the candidate throughout the recruitment and selection process for the particular position and for an additional 6 (six) months thereafter, unless extended retention is necessary to fulfill legal requirements or settle disputes. Hereafter, the personal data about the candidate will be deleted.
If you agree to be contacted with job offers in the future, your data will be kept for 3 (three) years following the receipt of your consent or until you withdraw your consent.
