Privacy Policy for Recruitment Activities

LIFULL Co., Ltd. (“we” hereafter) has established this privacy policy (“Policy”) to ensure the protection of personal information concerning its job applicants (“Job Applicants”).

Scope of Personal Information

In this Policy, the term “Personal Information” refers to the following information directly or indirectly acquired by us during the course of our personnel recruitment activities based on which Job Applicants can be identified, regardless of the form in which it is obtained:

  2. (2) Communications between us and Job Applicants for recruitment purposes
  3. (3) Other information readily collated with other pieces of information to identify a particular Job Applicant

Purposes of use

We use Personal Information concerning Job Applicants to provide job information, carry out applicant screening, authenticate personal identification, and review application history records. For Job Applicants who have been accepted and are employed by us, we will also use Personal Information to notify them of what steps they must take to begin working for us and to manage employment issues.

Provision of Personal Information to Third Parties

We may provide Personal Information to third parties only in the following cases:

  1. (1) We have obtained the Job Applicant’s consent to provide his or her Personal Information to third parties;

Disclosure, Correction, and Deletion of Personal Information

At the request of a Job Applicant, we will disclose, correct, or delete his or her Personal Information in our possession to the extent reasonable.
