Cookies and other information that we automatically collect
We may collect information about your computer or mobile device, including, where available, your IP address, operating system, log-in times and browser type. We use this information to better understand how visitors use our Platforms and for internal reporting purposes.
Some of the services that we provide are able to use information about your location. For these services, which are typically available on mobile devices or applications, you are provided with the opportunity to consent to the use of location services, which, for example, process information identifying your location derived from GPS or Wi-Fi access points. Your device will have settings that allow you to turn off these services should you no longer wish to benefit from them.
Sharing your information
We do not rent, sell or share personal information about you with other people or non-affiliated companies outside the Richemont group, except under the following circumstances:
- To third-party providers who provide services on our behalf.
- We may disclose your personal information to any law enforcement agency, court, regulator, government authority or other third party where we believe this is necessary to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation, or otherwise to protect our rights or the rights of any third party.
- We may disclose your personal information to any third party that purchases, or to which we transfer, all or substantially all of our assets and business. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to try to ensure that the entity to which we transfer your personal information uses it in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Notice.
Cloud hosting and international transfers
Information that we collect may be transferred to, stored and processed in any country or territory where one or more of our affiliated group companies or third-party service providers are located or maintain facilities. Some of these third parties will use cloud-based storage solutions. While other territories may not have the same standards of data protection as those within your home country, we will continue to protect the personal information we transfer in accordance with this Privacy Notice.
We have implemented standard contractual clauses to ensure adequate safeguards are in place to protect your information where it is transferred to our affiliated companies in territories outside the European Economic Area and Switzerland. Where we share your information with a third-party service provider outside of the European Economic Area and Switzerland (as detailed in the section entitled ‘Sharing your information’), we contractually oblige the third-party service provider to implement adequate safeguards to protect your information.
Our employees are part of a global family working in a fair, open and trusted environment. It is important for us to ensure that new employees joining Richemont have a strong commitment to our shared values.
We therefore reserve the right to ask all candidates in the final stages of recruitment to undergo a pre-employment screening check. Our approach to pre-employment screening is based on the principles of transparency and mutual respect and is conducted in line with all applicable regulations.
For applicants in the United Kingdom only: where any special category and/or criminal convictions data is processed by us or a third party service provider engaged by us, as a result of any candidate pre-screening checks, we hold such data in accordance with our Appropriate Policy Document. The Appropriate Policy Document explains the special category data and criminal offence data we collect and process, as well as our lawful basis for processing such data, together with our procedures for complying with the data protection principles and how we ensure compliance with A.5 of the GDPR.
Retaining your information
We keep your information for only as long as is necessary for our purposes, for example to send you information relating to current and future vacancies across the Richemont group and to protect ourselves in the event of a legal claim. However, the maximum time we will retain your information is a period of one year. After this period, it will be deleted or, in some cases, anonymised. Where we sought your consent to process your personal information and we have no other lawful basis to continue with that processing, we will delete your personal information if you subsequently withdraw your consent.
If you request that we no longer send you communications regarding future vacancies, we will keep a record of your request and contact details to ensure that your request is respected until such time as your information is deleted.
Protecting your information
We want you to feel confident about using our Platforms, and we are committed to protecting the personal information we collect. We limit access to personal information about you to employees who reasonably need access to it in order to provide you with products or services or in order to do their jobs. We have appropriate technical and organisational safeguards (physical, electronic and procedural) to protect the personal information that you provide us with against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, damage or destruction.
However, where we ask you to choose a password in order to access certain parts of our Platforms, you are responsible for selecting a secure password and keeping that password confidential. You should choose a password that you do not use on any other site, and you should not share it with anyone else.
