The companies responsible for data processing (the Data Controllers) are:

  • INNOVMETRIC SOFTWARE INC., with tax identification number (SIN/NAS) R138293006, with registered address at 2014 Cyrille-Duquet, Suite 310, Québec, Québec, Canada, G1N 4N6, and with the following email address for these purposes: privacy@innovmetric.com

    It should be noted that INNOVMETRIC SOFTWARE INC. has appointed, as its representative in the European Union in compliance with the provisions of Article 27 of the General Data Protection Regulation the Company (either subsidiary or joint venture) belonging to INNOVMETRIC Group that operates (or, where appropriate, that makes the job offer) in the country where you are which also acts as a Data Controller in this case. The identity and contact information of this Company are available at the following link: https://www.innovmetric.com/find-contact

  • The Company (either subsidiary or joint venture) which belongs to INNOVMETRIC Group and operates (or, where appropriate, makes the job offer) in the country where you are, whose identity and contact information are available at the following link: https://www.innovmetric.com/find-contact

According to the provisions of article 6.1.b) of the European Regulation, the legal basis that enables and entitles these Companies to process your personal data is the express consent given by you for such purposes by accepting this Policy.

By accepting this Policy, you give your express consent so that your personal data may be retained and processed for a reasonable period of time (which we establish as 5 years), for future selection processes that may be carried out by the Company, or to cover eventual vacancies that may be opened in the future, where the required profile may correspond to yours; unless you expressly exercise your right to erasure or your right to object to the processing of your personal data under the terms set forth in section 5 of this Policy.

The Companies responsible for data processing (the Data Controllers) may disclose your personal data to third parties when so provided by law.

By accepting this Policy, you also give your express consent so that your personal data may be disclosed to other companies of INNOVMETRIC Group located within the European Union, partly or entirely owned by INNOVMETRIC SOFTWARE INC., and whose identity and contact information are available at the following link ( https://www.innovmetric.com/find-contact ). The purpose of these possible disclosures of data and the eventual processing of it by these companies is to enable them to take you into consideration as a potential candidate to provide your services as an employee in these companies.

We inform you that, in the event that any of these disclosures to other companies of INNOVMETRIC Group occur, everything provided for in this Policy in relation to the fulfillment of the duty of information established by the GDPR will be applicable, with the difference that, in such case, the particular company to which your personal data would have been disclosed will be also considered a Data Controller (company responsible for data processing). Therefore, in that case, you will be entitled to exercise the same rights as provided for in Section 5 herein by sending either a letter or an email to the postal address or to the email address that appear as contact information of said company in the link mentioned in the previous paragraph.

Besides, we must inform you that, where data processing is to be carried out by way of a Processor on behalf of the Controllers, your personal data may be accessed by Companies providing hosting services, HR Platforms or HR Software companies (such as iCIMS), and agencies providing labor management services (so, in case you are finally recruited by the Company, these agencies can manage your employment contract and your registration), in their capacity as processors. Some of these services are provided in particular by companies located in Canada and the United States of America. Both countries have a recognized adequate level of data protection according to both, the Commission Decision 2002/2/EC of December 20, 2001, regarding entities subject to the scope of application of the Canadian Law on Data Protection, and the Commission Decision (EU) 2016/1250, of July 12, 2016, on the adequacy of the protection conferred by the EU-US Privacy Shield.

Finally, we inform you that by accepting this Policy you also give your express consent so that the Data Controllers may ask for references to companies in which you may have worked in the last 5 years, when they deem it appropriate.

The Data Controllers undertake to respect and facilitate the exercise of the Data Subject rights: right of access, right to rectification, right to erasure, right to object, right to restriction of processing, right to data portability and the rights related to automated decision-making, under the terms and within the limits established in arts. 15 to 22 of the GDPR.
