Personal data collected via this website and in the associated database (together called the “Database”) will be treated as strictly confidential and will only be processed as set out in this privacy statement. We will comply with all the applicable data protection and employment laws. If you have any questions or concerns in relation to this privacy statement, please contact us by email or by post:

Vifor Pharma Management Ltd.
(This is the “Controller” of the Personal Data)
The purpose of the collection of Personal Data in the Database is to support the recruiting process.
The legal basis for the collection and use of your Personal Data is our legitimate interest in operating an e-recruitment system.
We collect several types of information:
(In this privacy statement, we refer to the above information relating to you as your "Personal Data" or your “data”.)
Personal Data is stored in the Database provided by Avature Ltd. The Avature servers are maintained and housed by Avature’s subprocessor in the European Union. Insofar as we or Avature wish to use the services of further third parties for the technical maintenance, administration or processing of data, we or Avature, as the case may be, shall be entitled to forward your data to these parties to the extent required to ensure smooth and secure technical handling of your Personal Data. We and Avature (in its capacity as a data processor) shall ensure that such arrangements comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 of 27 April 2016 and Swiss data protection law.
Your data can be accessed by our HR department and hiring line managers of the Vifor Pharma Group companies worldwide, as well as by service providers engaged by the Vifor Pharma Group to support the recruitment process, such as for background checks or support with the interview process. In addition, members of the teams for which the position is being recruited may receive access to your CV.
Under exceptional circumstances we may also disclose your Personal Data to:
The persons or entities accessing your data may be located outside the country where you live, including in countries that are not regarded by the competent authorities as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data. In such cases, we ensure that appropriate safeguards are in place to protect your Personal Data, such as EU standard contractual clauses or Privacy Shield Framework certification (www.privacyshield.gov). A copy of the EU standard contractual clauses may be obtained from our data protection officer (GroupDPO@viforpharma.com).
You can always view, edit, update or delete the data you have entered into the Database at any time by logging in to the Database or asking our HR department to do this for you.
Your data will be retained in the Database until you delete it yourself or exercise the option to delete it by clicking on the link in the automatically generated email which you will receive every six (6) months while your data is still in the Database. While your data is in the Database, it can be accessed by personnel of the Vifor Pharma Group companies engaged in recruitment worldwide, who may contact you about suitable openings.
If you have any concerns about the use of your data, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority.
We and our data processors use a variety of methods, such as firewalls, intrusion detection software and manual security procedures, to secure your data against loss or damage and to help protect the accuracy and security of your Personal Data and to prevent unauthorized access or improper use. Please be aware that the transfer of your data via the internet into and out of the Database is only protected by SSL encryption if the key symbol on your button browser line is figured as locked and if the address starts with httpS://www----. Data transfer is then protected via the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) process in connection with a 128-bit encryption which prevents unauthorised third parties from reading your data. If this option is not active you might want to choose not to send certain data over the internet.
Please do not forward or disclose your user name and log-in details to any third party: You may be held responsible for any misuse of the Database carried out under your user name and log-in data if such misuse was due to your own negligence.
We may periodically update this privacy statement by posting updated versions on this page. If we make significant changes, we will display a prominent notice of the change on this website so that users are aware of the change. A revised privacy statement will apply only to your Personal Data collected after its effective date.
