This Privacy Statement and Consent to Use of Data applies to the personal data you enter in our CV database. The VELUX Group has a duty of care to protect your data privacy. VELUX A/S is responsible for this CV database. The personal data you enter in our CV database will be stored on a server in the UK and will be processed in compliance with Danish legislation, including the Act on Processing of Personal Data, with the exception of non-EU countries in which the VELUX Group operates and which may be comprised by other legislation.

This Privacy Statement and Consent to Use of Data pertains to the data collected by the VELUX Group and entered by you in our CV database; the manner in which they are processed; the purpose of such processing; information concerning any third parties to whom your personal data are disclosed; and other relevant information enabling you to protect your data.

CV database
If you apply for a job within the VELUX Group you will be required to enter certain personal details in our CV database as part of the application process.

The purpose of personal data processing
The VELUX Group uses the personal data you enter in our CV database for screening your qualifications in relation to vacancies within the VELUX Group, for giving you access to additional job opportunities, and for compiling statistics in anonymised form. In addition, the personal data you enter in our CV database will be used in troubleshooting technical problems, enhancing database content and maximising our system resources to ensure the efficient operation of our CV database and this part of our website.

Who has access to your personal data?
The VELUX Group is a global organisation. In entering your personal data in the VELUX Group's CV database, you thereby expressly request, and consent to, the issuance and transmission of your personal data to all companies within the VELUX Group, including the VELUX Group's data processors, who may be located either within or outside of the EU at any given time, and who may offer a lower standard of data protection than in Denmark, regardless of whether you have indicated a preferred place of employment.

Only trusted employees in our HR departments and staff involved in individual recruitment within the respective companies of the VELUX Group are granted access to your personal data for the purpose of processing your data in conformance with the aforementioned purposes. Your personal data will be processed under strict confidentiality and will not be disclosed to any third party outside the VELUX Group. Exceptionally, if you apply for a job for which the job listing states that an external recruitment agency will be processing the job applications, your personal data will, however, be disclosed to that recruitment agency.

If you are under the age of 18, we recommend that you talk to your parents or legal guardian before submitting an application to us.
