EU Data Policy

Amazon EU Candidate Privacy Notice

In this Amazon EU Candidate Privacy Notice (“Notice”), references to “Amazon”, “we”, “us” and “our” will mean the hiring Amazon company (as specified in the job description or as the context of the job description provides; see for respective contact details “Questions and queries” below). Amazon and its affiliated companies will be referred to collectively as the “Amazon Group”.

We know that you care how we use information about you and we appreciate your trust in us to do that carefully and sensibly. This Notice outlines how we collect, use and transfer (collectively “process”) the personal data of our candidates.

Who is the controller?

The controller is the hiring Amazon company; it determines how and why your personal data is processed. Our address can be found at “Questions and queries” below.

Processing of your personal data 

How and why we process your personal data?

Amazon will process your personal data for job recruiting and placement purposes, including notification of future job opportunities, and, for successful candidates, for employment purposes. You will find details on the personal data processed and the purposes for this processing below. Sometimes, these activities are carried out by third parties, including other members of the Amazon Group (see “Does Amazon share personal data with others?” below). We will inform you separately in case your personal data will be made subject to so-called automated decision-making.

If provided to us, we process the following categories of personal data about you:

  • identification data, including first name and surname;
  • contact information, including home address, phone/mobile/fax number, e-mail address;
  • gender, date of birth, citizenship;
  • data regarding responses to screening questions (where applicable);
  • background check information (where applicable);
  • previous employment information, including date of hire, job title, department and business unit, work location, work status (full time, part time), data pertaining to work preferences and abilities;
  • resume, including education, past work experience and references;
  • information on certain health conditions (only where required by law);
  • job interview notes;
  • assessment results.

Processing of this personal data is required to enable Amazon to administer the recruiting process, including the set-up of an electronic job applicant HR file, managing your application, organizing interviews – in short, the processing is necessary for us to entering into a contract with you. In case of legal proceedings, we will need to process your personal data to establish, exercise or defend us against the legal claim. We may also share your personal data with other Amazon Group companies to consider you for future job openings and will retain your data for a limited period of time beyond an unsuccessful application for this purpose. You can object to such use of your data (see below at “What are my rights under applicable data protection laws”).

Where does Amazon obtain my personal data from?

Most of the personal data we process is obtained from you when you file your application with Amazon, but we also obtain personal data about you in the course of the application process (for example, during interviews or via job assessments). Other data types may be obtained from third parties, including for example, recruitment agencies.

In most cases, you will be required to set up an Amazon candidate online account to be able to file your application. You have the opportunity to use your external social media account, such as Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, or Microsoft, to facilitate the set-up of your Amazon candidate online account. In that event, Amazon will be provided with the latest information from your social media account. Additional privacy terms of the social media service providers may apply.

Does Amazon share personal data with others? 

Our Group Companies

Personal data will only be shared across the Amazon Group in certain circumstances and where lawful to do so, for example with limited members of the human resources department or the IT department, both of which may be working for different Amazon entities. Whenever we need to share your personal data, we will only do so on a need to know basis and with selected employees for tasks within their job responsibilities. Amazon takes appropriate steps to ensure that such personnel are bound by duties of confidentiality with respect to your personal data.

Your personal data may in particular be shared with

  • Amazon Europe Core S.à.r.l. and Amazon EU S.à.r.l. in Luxembourg as various senior executive managers and HR functions are located here
  • Amazon.com Services, Inc. in the USA for storing and maintaining your personal data in our electronic database

Service Providers

We use third party service providers (e.g. iCIMS, Inc., SalesForce Inc. or work agencies) who provide technical and support services in connection with the application and recruitment process (such as hosting or “Software as a Service”). In providing the services, your personal data will, where applicable, be processed by the service provider on Amazon’s behalf.

We will confirm for any third party that we use that they can provide sufficient guarantees regarding the confidentiality and security of your data. We will ensure that any third party complies with our data security standards and international transfer restrictions.  

Disclosure to third parties

In certain circumstances, we share and/or are obliged to share your personal data with third parties outside the Amazon Group, for the purposes described above and in accordance with applicable data protection laws. These parties will act as controllers of your personal data in their own right, and they will be responsible for compliance with applicable data protection laws.

These third parties are:

  • insurances
  • police, public prosecutors
  • external advisors (such as legal advisors, accountants)
  • benefits providers
  • pension trustees

Does Amazon transfer personal data to countries outside the EEA?

We also transfer the personal data we process to countries outside the European Economic Area (”EEA”), for example, when one of our service providers (including Amazon Group companies) use staff or equipment based outside the EEA. We have put in place adequate safeguards with respect to the protection of your privacy, fundamental rights and freedoms, and the exercise of your rights, e.g. we establish an adequate level of data protection, usually through EU Standard Contractual Clauses based on the EU commission’s model clauses. If you would like to see a copy of any relevant provisions, please contact your hiring Amazon company (see “Questions and queries” below).

How is my personal data secured?

We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your personal data. We have in particular taken appropriate security measures against unlawful or unauthorised processing of personal data, and against the accidental loss of, or damage to, personal data.

How long does Amazon store my personal data? 

If your application for employment is successful and you commence employment with Amazon, your personal data will be transferred to your personnel file and will be processed for employment purposes.

If your application for employment is not successful, we will keep your personal data for a period of 4 years upon notification that your application was not successful for the purposes of (i) contacting you for future job vacancies and (ii) the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

What are my rights under applicable data protection laws?

You have the right to request access to, correction, or deletion of your personal data, to ask for data portability, as well as – depending on the laws of your country - to define instructions on your personal data after your death. You are also entitled to object to the processing of your personal data in certain instances. If we process your personal data based on your consent, you may withdraw it for the future at any time. For questions and queries please contact us at “Questions and queries” below.

Questions and queries

If you would like further information about your data protection rights please contact your hiring Amazon entity (or the respective data protection officer, where appointed) via EU-candidate-privacy@amazon.com or via the addresses as listed below. If you have any concern about privacy  or want to contact one of our data controllers, please contact us with a thorough description and we will try to resolve the issue for you. You can also lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.
