ST Recruiting Privacy Terms (Privacy Terms)


The Privacy Terms are intended to describe the practices ST employs when collecting, using, and handling personal information about you in connection with our online and offline recruitment activities.

Please note that ‘ST’ is used to refer to any legal entities of the ST corporate group. Reading these Privacy Terms, you will notice that we also use ‘we’ to refer to ST.

If you have any questions or feel that your concerns have not been addressed by these Privacy Terms, or you just want to talk to us, feel free to contact us at

1. Expressing an interest in working for ST

This section explains how your information will be used when you submit information via this site.

The provision of your personal data is optional: however please be aware that your refusal to provide us with your personal data or to process them thereafter may result in the data controller not being able to carry out any activity related to your recruitment in relation to this online environment.

2. Who can access your information?

Access to your information is limited by need. All recruitment staff within the ST corporate group worldwide have access to your profile on the database and can match your details to current vacancies.

We may need to share your information with third parties but only for the following reasons:

  • When it is necessary to involve a third-party service provider to facilitate or extend recruitment services.
  • When explicitly requested by you.
  • As required by a court order or any other legal or regulatory requirement.

ST does not collect or compile personal data or information obtained by this site for dissemination or sale to outside parties for consumer marketing purposes or host mailings on behalf of third parties.

3. Why do we need your information?

Your information will be used by ST for administering the global recruitment program of its corporate member. This will include planning and monitoring recruitment campaigns and notifying you from time to time of current vacancies.

4. Your personal profile and application progress.

You have a responsibility to ensure you submit accurate information and keep it up to date. This can be done via the "Candidate Area". The Candidate Area requires a valid e-mail address as a login, along with other information, some of which is mandatory. Mandatory information will be marked accordingly. Your email address allows us to communicate with you if your qualifications and/or preferences match job opportunities, or if you opt to receive automated notifications of job postings at any member of the ST corporate group.

Your personal profile also makes it possible for you to access the recruitment section of the site to monitor progress of your application or amend your details should you wish to do so.

5. Applying for a job outside of your home country

If you wish to apply for a job in a country outside of your home country, we may need to ask you questions that are specific to the country where the job is located. This is because in certain countries, before we can offer someone a job, we must ask certain additional questions. These questions will be relevant and necessary for the job advertised and consistent with our legal obligations.

6. Send this job to a friend

You may wish to forward a job on this site to a friend. You can do this by clicking on the "Send this vacancy to a friend" link which can be found in each job description. We will require your e-mail address and the e-mail address of the recipient, your friend. We collect this information so that we can forward the job description and your e-mail address to avoid the possibility of the information being treated as spam. In addition, when we contact your friend, he/she will be provided with full details of how their information will be used, specifically in relation to their rights and details of the entity acting as a data controller, in line with this notice.

7. Data Retention

You may of course ask to have your information deleted at any time. Your information will remain on file with us as long as you are actively pursuing positions with ST. However please note that your data will not be kept more than six (6) months after the last contact with you.

8. Sensitive personal data

In the initial stages of the recruitment process, we do not seek to collect information that is considered as sensitive. Sensitive information is information about an individual that would fall into one or more of the following categories:

  • membership of a political association or religious beliefs, affiliations or philosophical beliefs;
  • membership of a professional or trade association or membership of a trade union;
  • sexual preferences or practices;
  • criminal record; and/or
  • health.

To the extent that you supply any information to support your application or as part of your personal profile you agree that we may use the information in accordance with local applicable law and in line with these Privacy Terms.

However please be aware that we may need to collect sensitive personal data at a later stage in the recruitment process if local employment regulations require us to do so. By submitting your sensitive personal information, you are agreeing to it being used in accordance with the details outlined in these Privacy Terms.

9. Referees

If you provide any information in relation to third parties or referees, you are responsible for obtaining their consent and ensuring they are aware that their details will be forwarded to, and used by, legal entities of the ST corporate group.
