Recruitment Privacy Policy
If you apply for a job at Schibsted your personal data will be registered with and processed
by us. The purpose of the registration is to enable us to handle the recruitment process in
question and to use the data for future recruitment. Lever (our Applicant Tracking System)
will process the personal data and only such data necessary for the purpose of the
recruitment may be processed, such as contact details and records to evaluate the
applicant’s suitability and career opportunities.

Schibsted will be responsible as a controller for your personal data and is committed to not
disclose it to unauthorized third parties.

Collection of data
Most of the data processed is supplied by you, yourself. Information may, however, be
collected using publicly available sources.

Any data collected is used solely for recruitment purposes, including statistical purposes, e.g.
demographic analyses of applicants, unless otherwise explicitly stated. Such statistic data is
processed in aggregated and non­identifiable form.

Please note that data in your application may be used for recruitment to other positions
within Schibsted than the one you’re currently applying for. If you’re not interested in any
other positions, please contact us and let us know you wish to be excluded.

Processing of data
Your personal data is processed in a conventional and regular recruitment­manner. The key
steps being collection, storage, evaluation, contacts and deletion after 24 months.
Such processing is necessary in order to facilitate the recruitment process, which is in the
legitimate interest of us as an employer.

You may be asked to provide data, which is not relevant to the recruitment process. If such
data is requested, it is voluntary and will not be used in the recruitment process. Such data
may be demographic information collected for statistical purpose (e.g. where you live or
where you went to school). The purpose of collecting such information will be provided in
connection to the request. By providing such information you consent to the information
being used for statistical purposes (or other purpose as provided in connection to the
request). Please note that such information will never affect the recruitment procedure and is
completely voluntary to supply.

Personal data is processed based on your consent, and therefore you may recall such
consent at any time by contacting Schibsted.

Your application will be automatically deleted 24 months after first registration unless
otherwise requested by you. An option to maintain your account beyond this timeframe will
be sent to you prior to deletion. For active candidates, this data is necessary in order to
facilitate the recruitment process, which is the legitimate interest of Schibsted.

Candidate data is kept in Lever 24 months after registration date for the following purposes:

  • To be able to match candidates with relevant future job openings.
  • To be able to evaluate interview data if the candidate re­applies. Stored data is used to
    create tasks, if the candidate wants to be marked as available for future vacancies.
  • Business value: To be able to use stored candidates as a database for sourcing.
  • Discrimination: In cases where Schibsted will need to show that the employment procedure
    was non­discriminatory.

Your rights
You may contact Schibsted and request information about which categories of personal data
is being processed, for what purpose, who has (or will) receive which data and if any
information has been collected from other sources than yourself (and if so, from where).

If you suspect, or consider, your personal data is being processed wrongfully, or that the
personal data being processed is inaccurate, you should contact Schibsted directly using the
contact information provided in the application procedure and request that the data is
rectified, erased or that processing is restricted (as applicable).

You may also contact Lever with your request by sending an e­mail to, please
note that Lever will only forward your request to Schibsted (who is the personal data
controller). You also have the right to file a complaint with the supervisory authority.

In certain situations, you have the right to data portability, meaning that your data is
transferred directly (or via yourself) from the employer to another controller in a structured,
commonly used and machine­-readable format.

You always have the right to request an excerpt of the personal data stored about you once
per year and to change the data if it is inaccurate as well as to get it deleted if the processing
lacks legal basis. Such demand must however be directed to the employer who acts as the
controller for your data.
