Processing Purposes

We use your information for the following purposes:

A. Assessing your skills, qualifications, interests and suitability against our career opportunities;

B. Communications with you about the recruitment process and/or your application(s);

C. To register you for FareHarbor recruitment events;

D. Assisting you with obtaining an immigration visa or work permit and/or assisting you with relocation where required;

E. As permitted by applicable law, verifying your information and carrying out reference checks and/or conducting pre-employment screening (where applicable) if you are offered a job, to verify the accuracy of the information as provided or implied by you, in order for FareHarbor to only employ people with proven records and sufficient level of integrity and trustworthiness;

G. To add you to our talent network, match open positions or send you job alerts informing you of other potential career opportunities at FareHarbor newsletters and information regarding upcoming recruitment events that may be of interest to you;

H. For analytical purposes, including making improvements to FareHarbor’s application and/or recruitment process including improving diversity in recruitment practices;

I. Complying with applicable laws, regulations and legal processes (e.g. administrative or court proceedings); and/or

J. For security purposes, including fraud detection and prevention and related investigations.

In view of purpose A to D, FareHarbor relies on the legal basis that the processing of your information is necessary in the context of the intention to enter into a contract with you. If you do not provide the requested information, FareHarbor cannot properly assess your application or enter into a contract with you. In view of purposes E to J, FareHarbor relies on its legitimate business interest to assess you during the recruitment procedure, to provide its recruitment services to you, to improve its recruitment process, and to prevent fraud and maintain security. When using information to serve its legitimate interest, FareHarbor will always balance your rights and interests in the protection of your information against FareHarbor’s rights and interests. For purpose I FareHarbor relies also, where applicable, on compliance with legal obligations. Where needed under applicable law, FareHarbor will obtain your consent prior to processing your information, such as for example when sending newsletters and to add you to our talent network.

If you wish to object to the processing set out under F to H and J and no opt-out mechanism is available to you directly (for example in the email we sent you), to the extent applicable, please contact

Talent Network

We may maintain a talent network, i.e. talent pool, of potential candidates. You may be added to our talent pool by actively registering via our Site or after an unsuccessful recruitment process. Please contact us as set out below in case you would like to be removed from our talent pool or your information should be updated. We retain information in our talent pool for a period of one year.

Online Assessment

Depending on the vacancy, you may be requested to perform an online assessment to establish whether you meet certain job requirements (e.g. language tests, availability to work at given times, job preview and competency test). Your assessment results shall be automatically transferred to FareHarbor and will be part of your application file. Your assessment results may be used to provide specific training and/or coaching during your employment with FareHarbor and your assessment results may be shared with managers and/or coaches for this purpose.

If you do not meet the assessment requirements, your job application will be rejected. Consequently, you may be blocked from applying for the same position within FareHarbor through the Site for 6 months. This is to prevent applicants from undertaking several assessments in too short time periods. After 6 months, you may apply again for the same position within FareHarbor, though you will be subject again to an online assessment.


If your application is successful, your information may be used for a pre-employment screening check by a third party as permitted by applicable law. Depending on the vacancy and applicable law, a pre-employment screening may include verification of skill proficiency (including professional licenses and drivers licenses), employment history, education, criminal history, financial history and other information (such as media information) that may be necessary for determining your qualifications and suitability for the open position at FareHarbor, such as education and employment verification. You will be informed thoroughly about the entire screening process beforehand separately.

Data sharing

Sharing with FareHarbor group of companies: FareHarbor is operating the recruitment process for positions across the FareHarbor corporate family. Therefore, in order to assess whether your profile fits with the vacancy, your information may be shared with group companies. As permitted by law, your information may also be shared for analytical purposes. If FareHarbor employs you, your relevant information will be shared with the employing FareHarbor Affiliate.

FareHarbor may need to share some parts of your information with members of the FareHarbor group of companies for compliance purposes as permitted by applicable law and strictly necessary to protect the FareHarbor group of companies from fraudulent activities and investigating and handling data security breaches.

International Data Transfers

The transmission of information as described in this Privacy Statement may include transfers of information to countries whose data protection laws are not as comprehensive as those of the countries within the European Union. For example, in certain specific cases, we transfer your data outside the EEA because it is in your interest or is necessary to conclude or perform the contract we have with you. For instance, after we receive your application we need to forward your application to the HR team of the office where the vacancy you have applied for is to be filled. This may include forwarding your application to FareHarbor offices outside the EEA. Where required by European law, we’ll only transfer information to recipients that offer an adequate level of data protection. In these situations, as may be required, we make contractual arrangements to ensure that your information is still protected in line with European standards.You can ask to see a copy of these contractual agreements by contacting us at


FareHarbor observes reasonable procedures to prevent unauthorized access to, and the misuse of, information. We use appropriate business systems and procedures to protect and safeguard information. We also use security procedures and technical and physical restrictions for accessing and using the information on our servers. Only authorized personnel are permitted to access information in the course of their work.

Data Retention

If FareHarbor or a FareHarbor Affiliate employs you, your information collected during the application and recruitment process – to the extent it is relevant – will become part of your personnel file. All information we retain as part of your personnel file will be subject to our internal retention policy for employees. You will be further informed via our employee privacy notice.

If FareHarbor does not employ you, FareHarbor will nevertheless continue to retain and use your information for as long as necessary for the purpose for which we are processing it or as long as we are required to retain it in accordance with applicable laws. FareHarbor may refer back to an earlier application in case you submit a new application in the future. FareHarbor may also retain your information in case you want to be part of our talent pool. In this respect FareHarbor will retain your information collected as part of the application for a specific job opening for a period of one year following rejection of the job application, unless otherwise required by applicable law.
