- Personal Information we receive from someone who has referred you to us as a suitable candidate;
- Personal Information collected from publicly available sources, including any business social media platforms you use or other information available online.

How we may use your Personal Information
We may process your Personal Information for the following purposes:
- To assess your application for a job opening at Aviatrix to which you have applied.
- To consider you for other (future) job openings at Aviatrix.
- To communicate with you throughout the recruitment process.
As our lawful basis for data processing, we rely on the legitimate interest of finding suitable candidates for Aviatrix. According to Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, organizations such as Aviatrix can claim that collecting and evaluating candidate data is a legitimate interest as it pertains to selecting a candidate for employment.
How we handle your Personal Information
Aviatrix is committed to security of your Personal Information as such we employ industry standard procedural and technological measures that are reasonably designed to help protect your Personal Information from loss, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Aviatrix uses, without limitation, firewalls, password protection, encryption, and other security measures to help prevent unauthorized access to your personal data. We have internal procedures and policies, guidelines, and documented practices for the safe handling and protection of data and conduct audits of the same.
Your Personal Information will be shared and handled only by Aviatrix employees on a need-to-know basis. All Aviatrix employees handling your Personal Information are subject to appropriate confidentiality obligations.
Per default, we will retain all Personal for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we collected it (the Retention Period).
However, we will delete your Personal Information before this Retention Period ends in case you request us to do so by sending a request to [email protected]. If we wish to keep your Personal Information beyond the Retention Period we may seek your consent to do so.
Please note that for certain jurisdictions (such as the State of California) law mandates that we retain your Personal Information beyond the Retention Period. If applicable law, accounting requirements or other requirements compel us to do so we may keep your Personal Information beyond the Retention Period. Seek legal counsel to check whether this may apply to you.
Your rights and how to contact us
If the General Data Protection Regulation applies to you because you are in the European Union and if we are the controller of such personal data, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. You may be able to exercise these rights in relation to the Personal Information:
- Right of access – you may have the right to request a copy of the Personal Information we have about you and to request supporting information explaining how the Personal Information is used;
- Right of rectification – you may have the right to request that we rectify inaccurate Personal Information about you;
- Right of erasure – you may have the right to request that we erase Personal Information about you;

- Right to withdraw consent – where we process your Personal Information based on consent, you have the right to withdraw consent at any time.

Furthermore, even in case of a withdrawal we may continue to use your Personal Information as permitted or required by law; and
- Right to object – where we are processing your Personal Information based on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) you may challenge this. However, we may be entitled to continue processing your Personal Information where we can demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information (which override your rights and freedoms), or where continuing to process your Personal Information is relevant to the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
International Transfers for European candidates
The Personal Information we collect from you will be stored by our subprocessor Greenhouse and as such may be transferred to and stored in the United States of America.
Adequacy of data protection is instead ensured by Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission in accordance with Article 46(2)(c) of the General Data Protection Regulation, or any equivalent clauses approved by the authorities in the United Kingdom including any additional safeguards as required by EU / UK data protection laws that we have in place with that third party, which we have in place with our subprocessor Greenhouse.
In addition, the GDPR grants you the right to lodge a complaint with your competent regulatory authority.
