Purpose

Your privacy is important to us. The purpose of this document is to set out how Conductor LLC and its affiliates (“Conductor,” “us,” “our,” or “we”) collect, use, store, or otherwise process personal data about job applicants and/or candidates (collectively, “you”), including when you access or use our careers websites, e.g., https://www.conductor.com/careers/, with whom we share it, and the rights to which you are afforded. This Applicant and Candidate Privacy Notice (“Notice”) does not cover your use of Conductor’s products or services as a consumer (for more information, please read our website privacy notice at https://www.conductor.com/privacy-policy/), or to any third-party websites and apps that you may use, including those to which we link in our websites. You should review the terms and policies for third-party websites and apps before clicking on any links. We recommend that you read this Notice in full to ensure you are fully informed about the manner in which we collect, use, store, or otherwise process your personal data as well as your privacy rights.
  1. Collection of Personal Data

Personal Data We Collect from You. Subject to applicable law, we may collect personal data from you in connection with your job application with Conductor and Conductor’s recruitment process, which includes the following:
  • Contact Information. We will collect basic contact information such as your full name, email address, and phone number.
  • Work History. As part of the application process, we may collect a resume, CV, cover letter, or job application which may include information about your education, experiences, and job history.
  • Educational Information. We may collect information including degrees awarded, transcripts, and other information in support of the job application.
  • Online Resources.  We may collect publicly available information from online sites, such as information contained within your LinkedIn profile, Facebook page, or other personal websites.
  • Diversity and Inclusion. Where allowed or required by law we may ask you to provide information such as ethnicity, gender identity, veteran status, or any disability or accommodation request during the recruitment process.
  • Candidate Assessments and Presentations. For certain roles, we may collect information from an assessment of your skills. You may also be asked to do a presentation during the recruitment process, which may be recorded and shared with the Conductor internal teams responsible for the hiring decision.
  • Other information. We also collect any additional information that you choose to include in your application materials or share with us during the application and recruitment process including information collected during phone screens and interviews.
Personal Data We Collect from Other Sources. Subject to applicable law, we may collect personal data about you from others, such as:
  • Third-Party Sources. Examples of third-party sources include employment screening agencies, background check agencies, recruiting agencies, service providers, former employers and/or schools and educational institutions, publicly available information on websites or social media (e.g., when applying through LinkedIn, where relevant for recruitment purposes and allowed by applicable law), and others where they are legally allowed to share your personal data with us. For example, if you register to be contacted by prospective employers on another website, the website may provide your personal data to us.
  • Individuals Who Refer You. Other individuals may give us your personal data. For example, if a friend thinks you may be interested in a job at Conductor, they may give us your contact details and resume.
  • Combining Personal Data from Different Sources. We may combine the personal data we receive from various sources with personal data we collect from you and use it as described in this Notice.
  1. Use of Personal Data

In general, and subject to applicable law, we may use your personal data for operational purposes to:
  • Process your job application for employment.
  • Manage your relationship with us (e.g., facilitating meetings, communicating with you, providing you with requested information).
  • Track an application through the recruitment process.
  • Contact (including by email) you or others on your behalf about suitable job opportunities as they may arise.
  • Contact references with your authorization.
  • Conduct background checks with your authorization.
  • Evaluate you in the recruitment and hiring process, including to assess your eligibility for available positions at Conductor.
  • Evaluate you for current and future job opportunities, including matching your skills and interests to applicable job requirements.
  • Conduct internal analyses to understand the job applicants and/or candidates who apply and to improve our recruitment process, including our diversity and equal employment opportunities efforts.
  • Comply with legal obligations (e.g., health and safety, anti-discrimination laws).
  • Analyze job applicants and/or candidate life cycle trends, including generating reports in an aggregated and de-identified or anonymized format.
Other Uses. We may combine the information we collect (“aggregate”) or remove pieces of information (“de-identify”) to limit or prevent identification of any particular individual to help with goals like research and recruiting. Once such information has been aggregated and anonymized such that it is no longer considered personal data under applicable data protection law, this Notice does not apply. Lawful Basis for Processing Your Personal Data. If applicable law requires a lawful basis for processing, our lawful basis for collecting and using the personal data described in this Notice will depend on the type of personal data concerned and the specific context in which we collect or use it. Depending on the jurisdiction in which you live, there may be other applicable lawful bases for processing your personal data that are not listed here. We normally collect or use personal data from you or others where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms (e.g., to communicate with you, to evaluate your application, to manage our recruitment processes efficiently and fairly), or where applicable, where we have obtained your consent to process for a specific purpose. In certain situations, we may have a legal obligation to collect or retain personal data (e.g., to comply with applicable employment and works council laws and regulations) or need the personal data to protect your vital interests or those of another person. When we process sensitive personal data about you, we will make sure that one or more of the lawful bases for processing sensitive personal data, as referenced above, applies. For instance, these include processing which is necessary for the purpose of satisfying our obligations in relation to employment law, processing related to data about you that you have made public, and processing which is necessary for the purpose of establishing, making or defending legal claims. If you have questions about or need further information concerning the lawful bases on which we collect, use, store, or otherwise process your personal data, please contact us using the contact details provided in Section 9 of this Notice.
  1. Personal Data Sharing

  • Internally. Your personal data may be disclosed to personnel involved in the recruiting and hiring processes, Human Resources, or third party administrators for recruitment or other legitimate business purposes.
  • Service Providers. We may share your personal data with service providers in connection with the provision of services including, but not limited to, the following: recruitment, talent acquisition and administration, technology services, background checks, where allowed by applicable law, and employment history checks. We have contracts with our service providers that address the safeguarding and proper use of your personal data.
  • Affiliates. We may share your personal data with affiliates under common ownership or control of Conductor for purposes of recruiting or evaluating job applicants and/or candidates, resource planning, and talent and recruitment as well as other legitimate business purposes.
  • Recruitment Agencies. We may share your personal data with recruitment agencies with whom you provided your personal data or make your personal data publicly accessible to recruitment agencies.

Subject to applicable law, your personal data may be processed in the countries where you have applied for a job, the United States, or any other country where Conductor or its affiliates have operations. Any third party processing your personal data on behalf of Conductor must comply with all relevant privacy laws in order to protect your personal data in any country where they process or transfer your personal data. If Conductor transfers your personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA) to our affiliates or to a third party, Conductor has and will continue to implement measures with any such recipients of your personal data to ensure it remains protected in accordance with this Notice and applicable data protection laws and to ensure that the transfer is lawful and that there are appropriate security arrangements in place, including, where appropriate, the usage of the EU standard contractual clauses.
  1. Retention of Personal Data

Unless a longer retention period is required by law, we will retain your personal data for as long as is needed to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Notice or for as long as we have a legitimate business interest that is not outweighed by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal data, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (e.g., because your personal data has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal data and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible. As such, we reserve the right to use such anonymous data for any legitimate business purpose without further notice to you or your consent.

These rights may be limited, for example, if fulfilling your request would reveal personal data about another individual, or if you ask us to delete personal data which we are required by law to keep or which we need to defend claims against us. If you are a California resident, please see Section 10 for additional disclosures and information about the personal data we have collected about you over the last 12 months and rights you may have regarding your personal data.

We will respond to requests to exercise your rights in accordance with the requirements of applicable data protection laws. Please note that in order to fulfil your request, we may need you to provide certain personal data to verify your identity. Depending upon applicable data protection and privacy law, individuals may also designate an authorized agent to exercise these rights on their behalf.

E. Your Rights Under the CCPA

As a California resident, you may have the rights listed below in relation to personal information that we have collected about you. However, these rights are not absolute, and in certain cases, we may decline your request as permitted by law.
Right to KnowThe right to request that we disclose to you the categories of personal information we collect, use or disclose, and information about our data practices.
Right to AccessThe right to access specific pieces of personal Information or categories of personal information collected about you and to know the source from which it was collected, the business or commercial purpose for which it was collected or shared and the categories of third parties with whom the personal information was shared.
Right to DeleteThe right to request that Conductor delete your personal information that we have collected from you.
Right to Correct The right to request that Conductor correct any inaccurate personal information that it maintains about you.
Right of No RetaliationThe right not to be discriminated against because you exercised any of your CCPA rights.
To exercise a CCPA consumer right as described above, you can submit a verifiable consumer request to us by emailing privacyrequests@Conductor.com.

Making a Verifiable Consumer Request:

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.  We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request. Using an Authorized Agent: If you use an authorized agent to submit a consumer request, the authorized agent must provide documentation or other proof indicating that they are authorized to act on your behalf. For requests to correct, access or delete, we may require you to verify your identity directly with us (for example, by emailing us directly from your email address associated with your application), and directly confirm with us that you provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request.  If you are an authorized agent, you may make a request by emailing privacyrequests@Conductor.com and providing documentation or other proof indicating that you are authorized by the consumer to act on their behalf. The agent must provide documentation necessary (as determined in Conductor's discretion) to verify the agent has authority to act on the consumer's behalf in relation to CCPA requests. Limitations on CCPA Requests: You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative; and
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
Response Timing and Format: We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing (email suffices). Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data access requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily usable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance, for example, through an Excel file format. We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
