Recruitment Policies

Updated 25-Jun-2019 - Honeywell International Inc. and, its affiliates (together, “we/us”) commit to process your personal data for recruiting-related activities in compliance with all applicable data protection legislation. We are the controllers of your personal data for the purposes of applicable data protection laws.

Personal data we collect about you

We collect personal data from you or from third parties involved in your recruitment (e.g., recruitment agencies). These categories of data include information relating to your identity (e.g., name, address, e-mail), your education (e.g., diplomas and certifications) and your work history (e.g., professional experience), notably as provided on your resume. We may also from time to time and when warranted by specific circumstances, collect publicly available information about you or where allowed by local law, information relating to your criminal record for pre-employment screening purposes (where allowed). Certain positions and certain locations may require us to process information about your country of citizenship or national identification if required for a particular position. We do not require you to provide us with sensitive personal data unless it is necessary for the purposes of carrying out our obligations or exercise specific rights according to legal and regulatory requirements, or unless you have provided your explicit consent in accordance with local legislation. For example, we may collect certain sensitive data to accommodate any disability you may have. If you choose not to provide the information necessary in order to process your application, we may be unable to process your application.

Why we process your personal data

The processing of your personal data is necessary in order to assess your recruitment, in order to comply with applicable legal and regulatory requirements and in order to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim. Where the recruitment process results in an employment, a new notice will be provided to you.

Who we share your data with

Access to your personal data is restricted to the personnel who may legitimately process your personal data for recruiting-related purposes. This includes personnel of Honeywell, and third parties involved in the recruitment process (e.g., recruitment agencies and entities involved in your drug screening and background check if applicable and where permitted by law, and entities involved in sourcing and screening of applicants).

Your rights and obligations

We rely on you to provide accurate information about you. Depending on the jurisdiction in which you reside, you may have certain rights in respect of your personal data, including the right to access and be given copies of your personal data. If required by law, we will comply with any request by you to exercise your rights in the time and manner required by law.

We take steps to ensure that all transfers of personal data outside the EEA and Switzerland are lawful. Such data transfers are normally subject to prior execution of EU Standard Contractual Clauses, although we may rely on other legal mechanisms for the transfer of personal data outside the EEA or Switzerland from time to time. Further information on, and where applicable copies of, these legal mechanisms are available upon request to the address set out below.
