Recruitment Policy

What purposes do we use your personal data for? 

Comgest S.A., as data controller, uses your personal data for recruitment purposes only, i.e. to evaluate your suitability for any position for which you may apply at Comgest.

Providing your personal data is necessary for us to review your application and aptness for a role in Comgest.  If you do not provide us with such information or if you choose to remove your details from our database, we may not be able to perform such review and potentially offer you to enter into an employment contract with us.

What is our legal basis for processing?

We use your personal data for recruitment purposes (i) in connection with us taking steps at your request prior to entering into a contract we may have with you and/or (ii) it is in our legitimate interest to use personal data to ensure that we can make the finest hiring decisions for Comgest.

We maintain in Paris, France, a recruitment database, which is accessible by our HR teams in any of Comgest affiliates so that we are able to approach you about possible opportunities in any part of our Group. A list of our Comgest affiliates current locations can be found here.

Some Comgest Group entities may be located outside the EU/EEA, in countries which do not offer the same level of protection to your personal data.  Internal transfers within Comgest Group from Comgest European entities to non-EU/EEA Comgest entities will be made pursuant to agreements that incorporate the European Commission-approved Standard Contractual Clauses.

Conversely, if you are retained for a position within Comgest, we will keep the documents (including personal data) you have provided for the duration of your employment relationship with us and applicable statute of limitation.

  • The right to restrict our processing of your personal data under specific circumstances; where your personal data is subject to restriction, we will (with the exception of storage) only process it with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
  • Right to object to processing: when the processing is based on legitimate interest grounds, you have the right to object to that processing at any time. If you object, we must stop that processing unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or we need to process the personal data for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
