We use this information only for the purpose of supporting and managing our application and recruitment process, including without limitation to verify your identity, qualifications and suitability for the position you have applied for and, where permitted by applicable law, to perform background or employment checks.
The CV data may be used for anonymous statistics in an aggregated form. No individual user of the Database can be identified from this information. We may also use IP addresses for the purpose of general and anonymous statistics showing for example the number of visitors, page impressions or similar information. We will not create individual user profiles from such information.
If you provide to us information about someone you know as part of our “Refer a Friend” program, please ensure that that person agrees to your sharing of his/her information with us. You should also make that person aware of the information in this privacy statement.
Personal Data is stored in the Database provided by Avature GmbH, our data processor. The data is stored on servers, which are owned and maintained by the Avature group and which are located in the European Union. Insofar as we or Avature use the services of further third parties for the technical maintenance, administration or processing of data, we or Avature, as the case may be, forward your Personal Data to these parties to the extent required to ensure smooth and secure technical handling of your Personal Data in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 of 27 April 2016 and Swiss data protection law.
Your Personal Data can be accessed by our HR department and hiring line managers of the Vifor Pharma Group companies worldwide.

In addition, members of the team for which the position is being recruited may receive access to your CV.
We may disclose your Personal Data to third parties in connection with the sale or transfer of all or part of our business, in which case we would require the third parties to treat those data in accordance with this privacy statement.
Under exceptional circumstances we may also disclose your Personal Data to:
The above persons or entities accessing your Personal 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.

You can access, edit, update or delete any other Personal Data that you have entered into the Database at any time by logging into the Database or asking our HR department to do this for you. You can also ask for the processing of your Personal Data to be restricted.
Your Personal Data will be retained in the Database until you delete it yourself, ask our HR department to do this for you, 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 Personal Data is still in the Database.

We and our data processors use a variety of methods such as firewalls, intrusion detection software and manual security procedures to secure your Personal 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 Personal 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 shown 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 Personal 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.
We may periodically update this privacy statement by posting updated versions on this page.
