Flex International USA, Inc. of 6201 America Center, San Jose, CA, USA, and all other

Flex group companies (hereafter Flex) takes its obligations to protect privacy and personal

information very seriously and is committed to complying with all applicable data protection

laws.


Collection and processing of personal data


When you apply for employment, Flex collects and processes personal information that

you submit to us through our Flex Careers website or in job interviews as well as

information of other sources (e.g. headhunters), if applicable and admissible according to

local law.


For submitting your application via our Flex Careers website, you can either create a user

account by entering a user ID and password or you can simply fill in your data in the

application forms. If you choose to create a user account, you will be able to monitor the

current status of your application at Flex.


During the recruiting process Flex may collect and process personal information such as:


  • Data that you enter through our Flex Careers website (e.g. in application forms, in the course of creating a user account or by linking your LinkedIn account);
  • Data that you submit in the CV or in other documents;
  • Data about you that is generated by recruiters in the recruitment process;
  • Data about your education, work experience, or other data revealed during

    background screenings as per the local law requirements;

  • Sensitive data about your health or disability where the data is relevant for your

ability to work or about your race / ethnicity / religion / gender/ veteran status where

it is required by government for reporting purposes and is admissible according to

local law. Flex has stricter rules that apply for collecting and processing sensitive

data which are in accordance with the Data Privacy laws and legislation in relation

to it.


If data fields are marked optional, you can freely choose if you would like to fill them. You

can always add any information you would like to submit via your CV or other documents

you attach.


Purposes of processing


The personal information collected is used only in the recruitment process in order to

assess your suitability for the job for which you are applying.

We will also use your personal information to assess your suitability for other open

positions within Flex that you may be interested in and to notify you about these.

If you are offered a job or become employed at Flex, your personal data will be processed

for HR management and other employment related purposes in compliance with local law.


Disclosures of Personal Data


Your Personal Data may be shared internally with authorized employees of Flex group

companies who are involved in the hiring process and have a legitimate need to access

and process your data for the purpose of evaluating your qualifications for the job

requisition you applied to or other current or future job openings. Because of the

multinational matrix organization of Flex, your personal data might be accessed by

employees of various Flex companies internationally.

Your personal data will only be disclosed to third parties or external Data Processors

where the disclosure is necessary in connection with recruiting and HR management,

corporate governance, legal or regulatory requirements and is compliant with local law.

When we use external Data Processors to process your personal data we make sure they

have implemented appropriate technical and organisational safeguards for processing and

we conclude contractual arrangements regarding data privacy, including rules to

confidentiality.


International transfer of personal data


Flex has implemented internal Data Privacy Standards and policies to safeguard

intercompany data transfers consistently with the European Union’s rules for data

processing. These so called Binding Corporate Rules make sure your personal data are

protected adequately when transferred between Flex companies nationally or

internationally.


In case we transfer your personal data in a country where applicable data protection and

privacy laws provide less protection than our internal rules, our internal rules apply.

However, if your country’s applicable data protection and privacy laws provide a higher

protection, we will ensure that we will comply with the higher standard.


If we disclose your personal data to third parties or external data processors as described

above that are located in a country outside the European Union, we will take appropriate

measures to ensure an adequate level of data protection (e.g. by conducting EU Standard

Contractual Clauses).


Your personal data will be stored in an application hosted by an external cloud provider.

Flex has conducted EU Standard Contractual Clauses with the provider to safeguard your

data appropriately.


Data Retention


Flex will store your personal data as long as necessary for the purpose of evaluating your

qualifications and suitability for the job requisition you applied to or other current or future

job openings as well as for compliance with applicable laws.


If you want to revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data and want to

withdraw your application and/or you don’t want to be considered for possible future job

openings, you can request deletion of your personal data at any time by contacting

GermanyRecruitingFlex@flex.com; we will delete your data as soon as possible in

accordance with local legal requirements.


If you become employed at Flex, your personal data will become part of your personnel file

and will be processed and stored in compliance with local law.


Data Security


We have put in place technical and organizational security measures to prevent the loss or

unauthorized access of your personal information. We train our employees in the proper

handling of personal information. However, while we’ve used our best efforts to ensure the

security of your data, please be aware that we cannot guarantee the security of

information transmitted over the Internet. If you have reason to believe that your
