Sources of personal data

We mostly collect your personal data from you.  We may also receive personal data from recruitment agencies and service providers involved in the recruitment and screening process.  Personal data will also be generated by us during the recruitment process.

How we use personal data we collect about you

We use your personal data for recruitment-related purposes, including to:

  • Determine your qualifications and suitability for the role applied for, and potentially future job openings, and to make a hiring decision.
  • Contact you about your job application(s) or your inquiry.
  • Notify you about new jobs matching your preferences and other events and announcements if you have opted to receive such updates.
  • Conduct screening, assessments, and interviews.

  • Carry out analysis and reporting, and to ensure that our recruitment processes are fair.

We will only use your personal data fairly and where we have a lawful reason to do so. We are allowed to use your personal data if we have your consent or another legally permitted reason applies. These include to fulfil a contract with you or to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract, when we have a legal duty to comply with, or when it is in our legitimate business interest to use your personal data. We can only rely on our legitimate business interest if it is fair and reasonable to do so.

Sensitive personal data and information relating to criminal convictions

We may use your sensitive (or special category) personal data in the following ways:

  • We will use information about your disability status to consider whether we need to provide appropriate adjustments during the recruitment process, for example considering whether adjustments need to be made during a test or interview.
  • We will use information about your race or national or ethnic origin, religious, philosophical or moral beliefs, or your sexual life or sexual orientation, to ensure meaningful equal opportunity monitoring and reporting.

Depending on your country and the role you are apply for, we may carry out criminal record checks.  Please speak to your recruitment/HR contact for more information.

We do not use or disclose sensitive employment personal data to infer characteristics about candidates. 

Sharing personal data with third parties

We will only share your personal data with those who have a legitimate need to know, such as:

  • Our group companies.
  • Service providers and professional advisors.
  • When necessary to protect our rights, investigate fraud or breaches of law.
  • When necessary to respond to legal or regulatory process, or a request from a public authority.
  • In the event that IGT considers or undergoes a business transition such as a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of all or part of our assets.

We have disclosed personal data to the same categories of recipients as those listed above in the 12 months prior to the date of this Privacy Notice.  

We do not sell your personal data or share your personal data with third parties for the purposes of cross-contextual targeted advertising.

International Transfer of Personal Data

We maintain servers around the world, including in the United States, and your information may be stored and processed on servers located outside of the country where you are based. 

We may also share your personal data with group companies and service providers which are involved in the recruitment process, and which may be located outside of your home country.

Data protection laws vary among countries, with some providing more protection than others. Regardless of where your information is processed, we apply the protections described in this Privacy Notice. Where legally required, we also enter into data transfer agreements, such as the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses, with the third parties receiving personal data.

Retention and Security

We have security measures in place to protect against unauthorized access, use and disclosure of your personal data. As an example of such measures, we restrict access to personal data on a need-to-know basis.

To protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your personal data in our custody, we maintain physical, logical, and procedural safeguards in compliance with internationally recognized standards and other industry specific security best practices. As part of these best practices, we review our privacy policies on a regular basis to ensure our compliance with applicable data protection laws and regulations.

Please be aware, however, that no information system is 100% secure, and therefore we cannot guarantee against all potential security breaches. Moreover, the transmission of information over wireless and wired networks is not inherently secure, and we are not responsible for the transmission of information over networks that we do not control.

Your personal data is retained for one (1) year from the last record update / action submitted on the career portal or until you ask us to erase your personal data. After your candidate account is deleted, or you ask us to delete your personal data, your personal data will only be retained to the extent required by applicable law.
