Retention The criteria used to determine our retention periods for job applicants’ Personal Information are: (i) the duration of the application process; (ii) as long as we have an ongoing working relationship with you; (iii) as required by a legal obligation to which we are subject; (iv) as advisable in light of our legal position (such as in regard of applicable statutes of limitations, litigation, or regulatory investigations). Your Personal Information will be added to NetApp’s international candidate database and can be retained and used to consider you for opportunities at NetApp and its affiliates other than the one(s) for which you apply. If you do not wish us to do this, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Law Applicable to Job Application The Careers Site allows you to apply for jobs worldwide, as a benefit of NetApp’s centralized global recruitment function. This Careers Site is operated from the United States. Accordingly, any Personal Information you submit to the Careers Site will be collected in the United States and will be subject to U.S. laws. However, if we share your Personal Information with an affiliate located in another country in the Interactions with Job Applicants context, the affiliate will handle your personal information in accordance with this Policy. Any hiring or other employment-related decisions will be made by the hiring affiliate in accordance with the law of the country where the job will be located.
Minors The Careers Site is not intended for minors under the age of 18.

Categories of Sources of Information Personal Information collected in the Interactions with Job Applicants context is collected from Original Sources and Third-Party Sources (such as LinkedIn and Indeed Career Builders), as well as from your prior employers and educational institutions you attended.
Third-Party Sources & Potential Candidates. We may use automated systems to enable us to find and recruit job candidates. These automated systems use personal information collected from Original and Third-Party Sources to determine whether an individual meets the requirements that apply for a specific job vacancy. Based on this analysis, our recruiters will be provided with an overview of the profiles that are potentially qualified for the relevant job and they will assess these recommendations and make individualized assessments as to applicant engagement and hiring.
Candidate Database. We may keep your Personal Information in our candidate database, including updating the database from linked Third Party Sources, even if you are not hired from your original application. If you do not wish us to retain your Personal Information for future job opportunities, please contact us at email@example.com.
Other sources may include your references, prior employers and educational institutions you attended.
