    Altia Oyj and its affiliates ("Altia") are committed to protecting your personal data in accordance with applicable data protection and privacy laws, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (“GDPR”). The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to describe the ways Altia collects, stores, uses, manages and otherwise processes personal data that you provide and Altia collects in relation to recruitment. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully before submitting your personal data to Altia. By submitting your data to Altia, you agree to this Privacy Policy.


    Altia Oyj, Kaapeliaukio 1, 00180 Helsinki, Finland, is the controller of your personal data. If you have any questions or comments regarding this Privacy Policy, please send a message to or contact Altia’s HR at +358 (0)20 207 013 013.


    1. Grounds and purposes of processing

      Altia processes your personal data on the following grounds:

      - consent (GDPR Art. 6.1(a)),
      - taking steps prior to entering into a potential employment contract (GDPR Art. 6.1(b)); and
      - legitimate interests pursued by Altia (GDPR Art. 6.1(f)).

      Based on your consent and to take steps prior to entering into a potential employment contract with you, Altia processes your personal data to recruit suitable candidate(s) and to manage other activities related to the recruitment process. Consequently, Altia processes your personal data for the following purposes: evaluating and selecting candidates, communicating with you during the recruitment process, setting up and conducting interviews and tests, assessing the results, making the final recruitment decision and as is otherwise necessary in the process. Altia may also process your personal data based on its legitimate interests for reporting and statistical purposes and for defending itself against claims for e.g. discrimination.

      Please note that if you intend to provide us with personal data of a reference or any other third party as part of your CV or otherwise, it is your responsibility to obtain consent from such third party.

    2. Collected data and retention

      Altia collects personal data from you and any information sources that you provide to Altia as part of your job application or in the recruitment process. Such data may include:

      - name, address, telephone number, email address, other contact information and your preferred ways to be contacted;
      - CV, cover letter, previous work experience, education, competences and skills;
      - preferred country/countries of employment, willingness to relocate, desired salary;
      - how you heard about the position,
      - information relating to references, and
      - personality or ability assessments.

      Altia retains your personal data as long as the data is required for the aforementioned purposes or as required by applicable laws. When such requirements no longer exist, the personal data will be deleted. Consequently, some of your data will be retained by Altia for a maximum period of two years after the relevant recruitment decision has been reached, after which it will be deleted in connection with the subsequent regular review of recruitment data. However, if you become an employee, any personal data that you have submitted in the recruitment process may become a part of your file and may be used for other employment/work-related purposes in accordance with the Privacy Policy for Employee Data at Altia.
    3. Recipients and disclosure

      The recipients of your data will be the human resources team and the manager(s) making the recruitment decision.

      Your personal data may be disclosed to third parties processing personal data on Altia’s behalf for the aforementioned purposes (including recruitment consulting services and services related to the recruitment software used by Altia). Your data is not processed outside the European Union or the European Economic Area.

    - Right to withdraw consent - You may withdraw your consent at any time. However, if you do, please note that we are not able to continue the recruitment process with you, as the processing of your personal data is necessary for the recruitment.

    - Right to object – You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of your personal data. Altia may decline the request and continue processing on statutory grounds.
    - Right to data portability – Under certain circumstances, you have the right to receive personal data that you have provided to Altia and to transfer such data to another controller.
