We have implemented this privacy policy to explain to you how we use and protect personal information we may gather from you by means of this Web site (“Privacy Policy”). By using our Web site, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your information, as described in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not use our Web site.

1. Data Security Regulation

1.1 Data collection, handling and use
Enterprise Rent-A-Car (Enterprise Rent-A-Car UK Limited in the UK, ERAC Ireland Limited in the Rep. of Ireland) and its affiliates and subsidiaries (Employer) and our 3rd party contracted employment-related vendor(s) (each, a Vendor) process personal data relating to applicants seeking employment at Employer solely for the purposes of managing the application and recruitment process, and for related human resources purposes.

The Vendor’s relationship with Enterprise is that of an independent contractor, and the Vendor does not serve as the Employer’s agent or employee. However, the Employer will retain control of and responsibility for the use of any personal data you disclose to the Employer or the Vendor.

While each Vendor and the Employer have instituted security precautions to protect the privacy of data you submit, Vendors and the Employer cannot guarantee security or confidentiality against all hackers, other attacks, or other security failures.

The Employer and Vendor will not use or disclose your information to any third party other than in accordance with this privacy statement.

In order that the Employer and Vendor can provide a personalised recruitment and selection service, you will be asked to submit personal information such as your name, e-mail address, postal address and telephone number, along with information relevant to your education, qualifications and experience. Employer and Vendor collect personal data only when you provide it to them, through registration, completion of forms or emails, as part of enquiries or requests and similar situations in which you have chosen to provide the information to them.

When you use the Employer’s Web site, data may be stored for various security purposes through the use of cookies, pixel tags, web beacons, log files and other technologies. This data may include the name of your internet service provider, the Web site that you used to link to the Employer’s Web site, the Web sites that you visit from the Employer’s Web site, your location and your IP-Address (the address which identifies your computer on the internet). This data could possibly lead to your identification, but the Employer does not use it to do so. Particularly, IP addresses are used to administer the Web site and to collect broad demographic information for aggregate use only. The Employer does use the data from time to time for statistical purposes, but does maintain the anonymity of each individual user so that the person cannot be identified.

  • for test data by Vendor in connection with their business of helping Employer select qualified job applicants.  As part of this validation research, the data may be processed by the Vendor and disclosed to their employees and professional advisors, including affiliate companies in other countries or locations;
  • for the Vendor to gather data submitted by you and to transmit this data to the Employer for purposes of the Employer’s equal opportunity monitoring;
  • to contact you regarding your application; or
  • for other purposes for which you have given your consent, except where otherwise provided by law.

In submitting personal information through this Web site you agree that this information may be transferred to countries outside of the European Union (“EU”) or of the European Economic Area (“EAA”) by the Vendor and Employer where this is necessary for the purposes set out in this policy.

These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the EU and EEA. In such cases, the Employer and Vendor will ensure that appropriate data privacy and protection measures are in place to require the data processor in that country to maintain protections on the data that are equivalent to those that apply in the United Kingdom and in Ireland.

In addition if you use the Web site while you are outside the EU or EEA, your information may be transferred outside the EU or EEA for the purposes set out in this policy.

Other than the disclosures referred to in this policy, the Employer and the Vendor will not disclose any personal data without your permission unless we are legally entitled or obliged to do so (for example if required to do so by Court Order or the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime).
