The personal information provided in this form by the applicant (“you”) is collected for the purpose of assessing your suitability for employment with APL Logistics Ltd or any of its group companies (collectively “APL Logistics”). The personal information provided to and collected by APL Logistics will be used in accordance with APL Logistics Global Privacy Policy, particularly for the following purposes: (i) to process the application for the specific position you have applied for; (ii) to process the application for other open positions within APL Logistics which may be suitable for you; and (iii) to conduct necessary reference checks, background checks and verification. The personal information will be processed by the APL Logistics group company to which you are submitting your job application as a data controller for the purposes of evaluating your application to work for APL Logistics and for the inclusion in your personal records if you become an employee.

Some of the personal information that you may provide below, or which we may collect through background checks or verification, is sensitive personal data. We will only use such sensitive personal data for health, safety and information purposes as permitted by law.

The personal information may be shared within the APL Logistics group. APL Logistics may use other APL Logistics group companies or third party service providers with whom APL Logistics contracts as part of its business operations to carry out certain human resources-related functions and IT functions, including to store your personal information on secure servers. If your application reaches the later stages of any recruitment process, APL Logistics may disclose some of your personal information to third parties as necessary to perform background checking and verification services on behalf of APL Logistics. APL Logistics will ensure that all such third party service providers only use your personal information as instructed by APL Logistics and for no other purposes. If any background checking or verifications produce discrepancies, APL Logistics will notify you and allow you to explain or make representation in relation to the discrepancies. APL Logistics group companies and their third party service providers may not be based in your local jurisdiction and may be based outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). Such transfers and disclosures will be made in accordance with applicable laws.

Other than as set out above, APL Logistics will not collect or request from you any personal information for the purposes of your application.

APL Logistics will ensure the secure storage and eventual proper disposal of stored personal information it collects from or about you and will take, and will require its third party service providers to take, appropriate organizational and technical measures against unauthorized or unlawful processing of your personal data or accidental loss of, or destruction or damage to your personal data.

APL Logistics will not retain your personal information for longer than is reasonably necessary for the purposes detailed above and will remove your personal information from its database earlier at your request unless it has lawful reason to retain the information.
