We only collect and process your data for the purposes set out in this Privacy Statement or for specific purposes that we share with you and/or that you have consented to;

We aim to collect, process and use as little personal data as possible;

Your personal data will not be shared, sold, rented or disclosed other than as described in this Privacy Statement.

What Personal Data We Collect?

By personal data, we refer to any information about a person from which that person can be identified. This does not include data for which the identity has been deleted (anonymous data).

The personal data we collect varies depending upon the purpose of the collection and the product or service we are providing you.

Generally, we may collect the following types of personal data from you directly:

Personal contact details, such as your name, email address, telephone, country of residence, among others in case you subscribe to a job alert. We may also collect your social media identifiers if you provided consent to General Foods to use your social media posts (as provided in the Terms and Conditions);

Browser history, such as pages accessed, date of access, location when accessed, and IP address;

If ever you apply for employment with us, we will collect additional personal data, such as your professional experience, education, languages, jobs of interest, geographic mobility, etc…

We may also collect personal data about you indirectly when you share content on social media pages, websites or applications related to our services or in response to our promotional advertisement on social media.

Why Do We Collect and Use Your Personal Data?

We collect your personal data so we can provide you with the best online experience.

When we collect and use your personal data for purposes mentioned above or for other purposes, we will inform you before or at the time of collection. 

If in accordance with the applicable regulation of your country of residence consent is needed to collect and process your personal data, you agree and accept that by registering to our site for receiving information on available positions, you provide us with the necessary consent.  In these cases, we may also process your personal information, without your consent, but always as permitted by and in compliance with the applicable laws.

Why We Protect Your Personal Data?

We understand that the security of your personal data is important. We make our best efforts to protect your personal data from misuse, interference, loss, unauthorized access, modification or disclosure. We have implemented a number of security measures to help protect your personal data. Please note however that where you are transmitting information to us over the internet this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Sharing of Your Personal Data

When we share your personal data with our affiliates, other organizations or trusted third parties, we make sure we only do so with organizations that safeguard and protect your personal data and comply with applicable privacy laws in the same or similar way that we do.

Trusted third parties may assist us in providing IT services, such as platform providers, hosting services, maintenance and support on our databases as well as on our software and applications that may contain data about you or to perform on our behalf the statistical analyses associated with the use of the website.

Your personal data will not be shared, sold, rented or disclosed other than as described in this Privacy Statement. We may, however, share your data when required by law and/or government authorities. 

Personal Data Retention Period

We will only retain your personal data for the time necessary to achieve the purposes for which we collected it, including to comply with any legal or accounting requirement.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we take into account the quantity, nature and sensitivity of personal data, the potential risk of harm resulting from the unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and the possibility of attaining those purposes by other means, as well as the applicable legal requirements.

After the established deadlines, the data is either deleted or retained after being anonymized, especially for statistical purposes. It may be retained in case of pre-litigation and litigation. It should be noted that deletion or anonymization are irreversible operations, and that General Foods is no longer able, thereafter, to restore this data.
