What personal data do you collect on prospective Relativians?

Whether you apply to us directly through our website, an outside website, or if one of recruiters reached out to you, then we will collect personal data about you, such as what you include on your CV, resume, application, or LinkedIn profile. We use this information to evaluate you throughout the recruitment process and it is only shared internally. We may also use the personal data you provide to evaluate you for other opportunities with Relativity.

We do not require sensitive personal data to evaluate your application, but if you provide us with such information, we may use it to help process your employment application and to comply with our legal obligations. For applicants within the US, we will ask you for certain sensitive data as so that we can fully comply with our Equal Employment Opportunity requirements. If you do provide us with any sensitive personal information, you consent to us processing such information as described in this notice.

In compliance with our security protocols, we will require you complete a background check upon being hired, or possibly during the recruitment process. Any information we acquire during your background check is used solely for employment purposes and will be kept confidential. If you fail to complete your background check or fail to supply the correct form, then we may stop considering your application or terminate your employment. Our background checks are carried out by a third-party provider and we ensure that both we and the third-party comply with all relevant laws in conducting any background check and handling of your personal data.

If you aren't offered a position with us, we may choose to retain your application information for up to three years after the application process is complete to consider you for other opportunities within Relativity you might be suited for. After that three years, we will delete your personal information if you haven't yet joined Relativity.

What personal data do you hold about current Relativians?

Some of the information we might ask for includes:

  • Contact information for your emergency contacts

  • National Identification Numbers (to process taxes and government benefits)
  • Personal financial data (for running payroll)

Any information we collect about you during your employment follows the relevant law and we hold onto this information only if required by our compliance obligations. We use certain third-party providers to help us with our HR functions. More details of who we use and why will be provided to you when you join.
