Last updated: 03 January 2020
Silicon Laboratories Inc. and its subsidiaries (“Silicon Labs”) collect, use and retain certain information about you to enable us to process your application. We do this for legitimate business purposes in compliance with region specific regulations including GDPR and CCPA. These regulations requires employers to tell their job applicants in more detail why we collect your data, what we do with it, and how long we expect to retain it.
We wish to obtain your informed consent about the data that we may hold about you. You are under no statutory or contractual obligation to provide data to Silicon Labs during the recruitment process, or to provide your consent. However, if you do not provide this data and/or your consent for us to collect, use and retain your data, or exercise certain rights, we may not be able to process your application properly, or at all.
The Information We Collect and How Long We Retain It
We collect a range of information about you. This includes the following, which is not a comprehensive list:
Examples: Your name, address, email address, phone number, previous employers, types of job held at other companies, previous salaries, skills and qualifications obtained, education, your legal eligibility to work for us.
Why we collect this data: This will help us to decide which job or department may be most suitable for you. This will allow us to assess your qualification for the job to which you are applying.
How long will we hold it: If your application is declined your data will be destroyed 6 months after completion of the application process unless you explicitly provide Silicon Labs consent to retain it. If a job offer is made, a more comprehensive consent form will be issued.
How Do We Obtain Your Data
We collect your data from the application forms that you complete online or in person, from documents that you provide to us, such as your CV or your passport, from interviews, and from online sources such as LinkedIn.
Who Has Access to Your Data
Your information may be shared internally for the purposes of the recruitment exercise. This includes members of the People and recruitment team, interviewers involved in the recruitment process, managers in the business area with a vacancy and IT staff if access to the data is necessary for the performance of their roles. Silicon Labs does not sell personal information to third parties. We will not share your data with third parties, unless your application for employment is successful and we make you an offer of employment. We will then share your data with former employers to obtain references for you, and employment background check providers to obtain necessary background checks.
Where is Your Data Processed and Stored
Your data is processed and stored primarily in Jobvite, which is an online recruiting tool used by Silicon Labs. It may also be stored IT systems used by Silicon Labs, including email. The recruiters and other employees who will process your data reside primarily within the United States.
