1 How we use your personal data

Personal data refers to any information that can be used to identify an individual (data subject), either on its own or when combined with other pieces of information.

With regard to the processing of personal data in connection with a recruitment, the applicant usually has interest in being able to apply and be eligible for the specific vacancy.

The provision of your personal data is voluntary. Failure to provide your personal data may prevent the invitation of the candidate to the further stage of the recruitment process or it may have impact on the job application processing and the candidate verification result in terms of meeting formal conditions for the recruited position.

Primarily, personal data is collected directly from you. Depending on the nature of the vacancy within Huawei for which you applied, some personal data may be collected from external or other sources to the extent permitted by applicable legislation.

1.1 Sources and Personal data we collect

1.1.1    Data you provide us with

To submit your application for a specific or prospective vacancy through our dedicated recruitment website and participate in the recruitment process, you need to create a Huawei account or profile. When doing so, you will be asked to provide account information, such as your email address and telephone number.

After setting-up your account, you may apply for the specific vacancy. The data you provide us directly as part of your application includes all data provided in your CV or resume and other personal data that we collect for the purpose of and during recruitment procedure. This data can include:

  • your name and surname, gender, address, postal code, contact information, age/date of birth, nationality, identity number;
  • work experience or other experience, education, qualifications, certificates, transcripts;
  • academic degree, professional titles, and other information required for a specific vacancy and provided by you;
  • background check information, only in cases where we have a legal obligation or a grounded reason for this data processing;
  • information from interviews and phone-screenings, if any;
  • details of the type of career prospective and employment you are or may be looking for, current and/or desired salary and other terms relating to compensation and benefits packages, willingness to relocate, or other job preferences;
  • details of how you heard about the position you are applying for; and
  • any other information you provide to us in support of your application and/or recruitment process (e.g., hobbies, personal interests, driving license).
  • Identifying and contacting potential candidates;
  • Evaluating candidates for potential employment and making hiring decisions;
  • Keeping records relating to recruitment;
  • Providing you with more suitable career opportunities at Huawei;
  • Identifying candidates for future positions that may become available;
  • Making improvements to Huawei’s recruitment process including improving diversity in recruitment practices as well as its recruitment platform;
  • Complying with applicable laws, regulations, legal processes or enforceable governmental requests.

In some countries, when recruiting for a special vacancy, we may ask your permission to collect personal data about your family members after giving you a specific reason for this and/or a legal basis. This will help us to decide whether there may be any conflict of interest.

Please make sure that you provide us only with information relevant for your recruitment application. If, in addition to the personal data listed above, you choose to provide us with further information and personal data, we will process such information and personal data only to the extent they are relevant for the recruitment process. Providing such additional personal data is voluntary and lack thereof will not affect the recruitment process.

In case you choose to submit your application for a specific or prospective vacancy through a social media platform (e.g., LinkedIn) or other local recruitment websites, you are not generally required to create a Huawei account or profile on Huawei’s recruitment website. In this case, the provisions regarding the Huawei account or profile included in this Statement shall not be applicable to you.

 

1.1.2    Data we get from your use of our services

When you apply through our dedicated recruitment website, we may collect system and application data from your devices, including the device name, system and application versions, regional and language settings, device version. We may also log your service access time, search query terms and the data stored in cookies on your devices.

 

1.1.3    Data from third parties

We may obtain data about you from publicly and commercially available sources as permitted by law. We may also collect data about you through third-party social networking services when you do things such as logging in to our websites using your Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter account, as well us from recruitment agencies that we cooperate with.

Huawei may also use service providers to perform some of the services described above, including for the purposes of the verification and running background/screening checks, as and when applicable.

 

Social Authentication - Apply with Facebook and LinkedIn feature

Please note that the recruitment platform allows you to use Social Authentication feature labelled as “Apply with Facebook” and “Apply with LinkedIn”. This is a form of single sign-on which uses existing information from a social networking service such as Facebook and LinkedIn with the sole purpose of pre-filling contact information section when you make an application to Huawei. The feature is designed to simplify the procedure for the User and is based on basic information from your social media account such as profile picture, name and surname, email address and mobile phone. In case you use Social Authentication feature, you will be forwarded to Facebook or LinkedIn website where you will be asked for explicit authorization to share limited these contact information with Huawei or Teamtailor (the provider of the recruitment platform) acting on behalf of Huawei. Huawei does not receive any other data from Facebook/LinkedIn. All data disclosed by Facebook and LinkedIn on your request is executed via so called authentication token which is encrypted and Huawei does not receive access to your account nor obtain other information than those mentioned above.

Usage of this function is fully optional. You may use this function if you do not wish to input the contact information yourself. If you decide to use Social Authentication function, please make sure that the contact information pre-filled based on your social media profile is accurate and up-to-date prior sending your application to Huawei. If you use Social Authentication but decide to turn it off prior submitting your application, please close the webpage where you make your application and restart the process – the settings will reset.

 

1.1.4    Data from internal sources

In some cases, if it is identified that you have shared the same previous employer during the same period as a current Huawei employee, or attended the same university/school, we may request that employee to provide feedback on you or otherwise consult this matter upon.

1.2 Use of your personal data

We collect and use your personal data for the purpose of recruitment, including:

We also process your personal data based on our legitimate interest in connection to our internal statistical analysis on recruitment. It is in Huawei’s interest to develop our recruitment processes and related services to make improvements to Huawei’s application and/or recruitment process including improving diversity in recruitment practice and ensuring that only appropriately qualified staff is offered with career opportunity at Huawei. To the extent possible, we will anonymize your personal data to execute analysis activities.

In case you are offered and accept employment with Huawei, the information collected during the recruitment process will become part of your employment record.

1.3 Collection and use of non-identifiable data

Non-identifiable data refers to data that cannot be used to identify an individual. For example, we may collect aggregated statistics, such as the number of visits to our websites. The aim of collecting such data is to understand how users use our websites, products, and services. This will allow us to improve our services and better satisfy customer needs. We may, at our own discretion, collect, use, process, transfer or disclose non-identifiable data for other purposes.

We endeavour to keep your personal data and non-identifiable data separate, and use each independently. If personal data is combined with non-identifiable data, it will be treated as personal data.

In case you decide to grant us with your consent, recruiters of Huawei and Huawei subsidiaries worldwide will be able to consider and contact you for other career opportunities.
