  1. Legal basis

If the data protection law of a country of the European Economic Area or the United Kingdom applies to the processing of your personal data, our legal basis for collecting and using your personal data described above will depend on the personal data concerned and the context in which we collect it. In most cases the legal basis will be one or more of the following:

  • to comply with our contractual obligations to you or to take steps to enter into a contract with you;
  • to comply with our legal obligations;
  • for purposes connected to legal claims, for example for defending Treasure data’s legal rights;
  • to meet our legitimate interests, for example to conduct our recruitment processes efficiently and fairly or to manage applicants effectively;
  • with your consent, in specific circumstances. If we rely on your consent to process your personal data, you may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us using the details at the end of this privacy statement.

When we are required by local law to collect certain personal data about you, your failure to provide this data may prevent or delay the fulfilment of our legal obligations and may impact our ability to employ you.

If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal data, please contact us using the contact details provided in the “How to contact us” section below.

  1. Data sharing

We will share your personal data with third parties who have a legitimate need for it, including:

  • in order to carry out the purposes of our processing described above. Your personal data may be shared with Treasure Data, Inc. and its subsidiaries, for example for internal human resource management;
  • in order to enable our service providers to provide their services to us. Treasure Data uses service providers to perform some of the processing activities described above, for example background checks;
  • in order to comply with our legal obligations, regulations, government clearances, or contracts or to respond to a court order, administrative or judicial process or a lawful request by a public authority. Categories of recipients would include counterparties to contracts, law enforcement agencies, courts, regulators, government authorities or other third party;
  • as necessary to establish, exercise or defend against potential, threatened or actual litigation (for example, to seek legal advice from external lawyers);
  • in order to detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or to protect our rights, your rights or the rights of any third party;
  • otherwise in accordance with your consent (for example, if you have given us permission to contact your referees). It is your responsibility to obtain consent from referees before providing their personal information to Treasure Data.
  1. Data security

The security of your personal data is very important to us. We use physical, electronic, and organizational safeguards designed to protect your personal data from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, use, alteration, or disclosure. Please note that no system is completely secure. So, while we strive to protect your data, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss or a data breach will never occur.

  1. International transfers

Treasure Data operates globally, which means your personal data may be stored and processed outside of the country where it was originally collected. Your personal data may be processed in countries that are not subject to an adequacy decision by the European Commission or your local legislature or regulator, and that may not provide for the same level of data protection as your jurisdiction. For example, because we are headquartered in the United States, personal data collected in other countries is routinely transferred to the United States for processing. In these instances, we put in place appropriate safeguards (such as the Standard Contractual Clauses issued by the European Commission) to ensure that your personal data is adequately protected.

  1. Data retention

If you apply for a job at Treasure Data and your application is unsuccessful (or you withdraw from the process or decline our offer), Treasure Data will retain your personal data for a period after your application. We retain this information in accordance with Treasure Data’s data retention policy for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the personal data was collected, for example to defend any existing or potential legal claims.

  1. Your rights in respect of your personal data

In certain countries, you may have certain rights under data protection law. This may include the right to request access or to update or review your personal data, to request that it is deleted or anonymized, or object to or restrict Treasure Data using it for certain purposes. Please see Section 7 of our general Privacy Statement for specific additional information by region/country.

If you wish to exercise your rights to your personal data under applicable law, you can submit a request to us by using this Data Subject Request Form. We will respond to any requests in accordance with applicable law, and so there may be circumstances where we are not able to comply with your request.

We encourage you to contact us to update or correct your information if it changes or if the personal data we hold about you is inaccurate.
