We’ve written it in simple language so you can easily understand our privacy practices avoiding any complicated legal terms.

Occasionally, its role may vary, but in any case, it retains responsibility for the data processing carried out by Intellias and other authorized persons.

Occasionally, we may receive your data from third parties, including those who recommend you for potential employment. When we receive data from third parties, we take appropriate measures to inform you about the information provided.

Usually, you provide us with your data voluntarily. However, if you choose not to provide certain data, we might not be able to assess your application, and you might be excluded from the recruitment process.

that is incompatible with such purposes.

We use such systems exclusively for staff administration purposes, such as identifying persons in the office, providing access to special areas, enforcing health and safety policies, and promptly responding to urgent requests or certain incidents.

However, if you visit our offices, e.g., for an interview or participation in our corporate events, we may process your image captured on the video recordings. Usually, you may find our systems installed in the entry point, office reception, or common places. The monitored areas are appropriately designated, and the recordings are stored for the time necessary for operational purposes depending on local specifics.

There is always a clear and visible signage in place to make sure you are informed that CCTV or other surveillance technology is in use.
