    A. Managing your job application. We have a legitimate interest to process your personal information so that we can assess who is most suitable for the position. In the job application process, we may want to check any references, but only after your consent. We may also want to view your public social media profiles, other public information about you, or perform a background check, but will only do so if such is necessary and relevant to the position you apply for.

    B. Onboarding. In case your application is successful, we have a legitimate interest to process your personal information so that we can offer you a position, you can enter into employment with us and to welcome you aboard.

    C. Future opportunities. If we would like to contact you in case of any upcoming employment opportunities for which you may be suitable, we shall ask you for your consent to keep your personal information on file for a maximum of one year. You may withdraw your consent any time.


    D. Legal purposes. Sometimes we need to use your information to handle legal claims, or to comply with applicable legal obligations or law enforcement agency requests.

    We have made a careful assessment of your fundamental rights and freedoms and our legitimate business interests and are continuously monitoring the balance. Should you however wish to object to the processing of your personal information based on our legitimate business interest, please see the section ‘Your rights’ below.

    What personal information do we process?

    Other than the information that you have supplied us with, we may process the following personal information about you:

    • Character and/or performance information from referees;
    • Background check information from public authorities;
    • Pre-employment assessment information from assessment service providers;
    • Personal information from the public section of your social media account(s), or other public information about you;

    Who are we sharing your personal information with?

    Your personal information shall only be shared with:

    • Relevant Kyocera employees who are involved in the job application process, this includes members of HR, interviewers involved in the job application process, managers in the business area of the application, potential internal clients and IT staff.
    • Your former employer(s) as referees, or other referees, but only after your consent;
    • An assessment service provider in case a pre-employment assessment would be part of the application process;
    • Public authorities for an employment background check in case the job application would be successful;
    • Other Kyocera group companies, such as Kyocera Document Solutions Inc. (Japan) in case the job application would be successful for the purpose of internal approval;
    • To the extent we are required by law, regulation or court order to disclose your personal information, we may have to share your personal information in compliance with that law, regulation, or court order.

    International Transfers


    We may transfer your personal information to a group company or third party that is located outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. If this country does not provide for an adequate level of protection by domestic law according to the European Commission, we have ensured this adequate level of protection by agreeing on additional appropriate safeguards with that group company or third party through the Standard Data Protection Clauses adopted by the European Commission.

    Where we use service providers from the US, such US based service provider has registered itself to be on the EU/US Privacy Shield list and has been self-certified with the US Department of Commerce.

    Alternatively, we may ask you for your explicit consent to the proposed transfer. You may request a copy of the Standard Data Protection Clauses by sending us an email, motivating your request.

    For how long do we keep your personal information?

    Where possible, we have set specific retention periods for keeping your personal information. These specific retention periods are stated below, or we shall communicate these to you at or before we start processing your personal information.

    Where it is not possible for us to use set retention periods, we have stated below the criteria that we use to determine the retention periods.

    Specific retention periods


    Purpose (A) Managing your job application. In case the job application is unsuccessful, we shall keep your personal information for a maximum of four weeks after the job application process has ended.

    Purpose (C) Future opportunities. In case you consent to us keeping your personal information for future opportunities, we shall keep your personal information for a maximum of one year after the job application process has ended.

    • The assessment of your fundamental rights and freedoms;

    Which technical and organisational measures have we taken?


    We take the security of your personal information very seriously and take all reasonable efforts to protect your personal information from loss, misuse, theft, unauthorised access, disclosure or modification.

    Your rights


    You have certain legal rights that we wish to inform you of.


    Access. You have the right to be informed on whether we process your personal information or not and to related information on that processing.


    Rectification. You have the right to have your personal information rectified or completed by us without undue delay. If you have set up an account with us, you have the possibility to rectify or complete your personal information yourself.


    Right to be forgotten. You have the right to have your personal information erased by us without undue delay. This right is limited to specific grounds, for example if you have withdrawn your consent, or if you object and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for us to maintain the processing. If you have an account with us, in many instances you have the option to erase your account yourself, in which case all your personal information is permanently deleted.


    Restriction of processing. You have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your personal information based on specific grounds. These are (1) the time for us to verify the accuracy of your personal information on your request; (2) instead of erasure of unlawful processing, you request restriction of use instead; (3) you need personal information in legal proceedings; or (4) we are verifying whether our legitimate grounds override your objection to the processing.


    Right to object. You have the right to object at any time to our processing of your personal information if such processing is (1) based on our legitimate interest (including us making a profile of you based on your consent); (2) for direct marketing purposes; or (3) necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or exercise of official authority vested in us. We shall cease to process your personal information based on your objection, unless we demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds overriding your interests, rights and freedoms or if we need your personal information in legal proceedings.


    Data portability. We are required to inform you of your right to receive your personal information from us so that you can transmit that personal information to another service provider. For KFS that means that at your request we shall supply you with your personal information related to your user account. It does not include any device data, including data that was transmitted to us in a log file.


    Consent withdrawal. If you have supplied us with your personal information based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw such consent at any time. You may do so by unsubscribing from the service that you have subscribed to if applicable. You may also do so by sending us an email to the applicable privacy email address as stated below. We shall then permanently remove your personal information from our database.


    Lodging a complaint. You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the country of your residence, about our processing of your personal information.
