II.    INFORMATION COLLECTED ABOUT YOU

We collect your personal information from several sources in order to verify information about your credentials, follow-up on references provided, or where required and permitted by local law to conduct background checks.

Envista also collects and processes personal information which is a result of your navigation through our Site.

Envista monitors user traffic patterns throughout the Site according to a user’s domain name, browser type, date and time of access and pages viewed.  Web servers collect the domain names and other technical information associated with visitors to the site. This information is collected in order to measure the number of visitors to the Site and to determine which areas of the Site users find useful based upon the amount of traffic to particular areas. Envista uses this information to enhance users’ experience at the Site and to better prepare future content based on the interests of users.

Cookies are small text files sent to and stored on users’ computers that allow websites to recognize repeat users, facilitate users’ access to Sites, and allow Sites to compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements.  Web beacons are transparent graphic images, often just the size of a single pixel, that allow Sites to track activity on the site.

Envista uses both cookies and web beacons on this Site to collect aggregate and anonymous usage data so that it can improve the functionality of the Site.  Envista may also use cookies which can contain personal information to enhance your user experience.  For example, the Site may permit you to select a language and/or geographic location preference, which will be stored for future visits.  

This Site uses third-party cookies from Envista’s service providers to manage your activity during a session.  These cookies track sessions, user inputs, and user authentication.  These service providers also use cookies to determine whether you navigated to this Site from an external one to track the effectiveness of external postings.

If you do not want cookies to be accessible by this Site, you should adjust the settings on your browser program to deny or disable the use of cookies.  You can find additional information on cookies and web beacons at http://www.allaboutcookies.org/. 

The major browsers have attempted to implement the draft “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) standard of the World Wide Web Consortium (“W3C”) in their latest releases. As this standard has not been finalized, this Site is not compatible with DNT.

III.    HOW WE WILL USE INFORMATION ABOUT YOU

The application data you submit on our careers Site will be stored in the United States, and in the applicable jurisdiction(s) if the position is at a location outside of the United States.

If your application is successful, we will also need to process your personal information to make you an offer and enter into an employment agreement with you.

In completing the application process, you will create a profile that will allow you to self-manage your preferences, including asserting any data protection law rights you may have related to the continued storage and use (as described above) of your personal information in our systems.

Information about you will be added to Envista’s applicant database and will be used for the purpose of considering whether your profile meets the requirements of the vacant role at Envista.

If you become an Envista employee, your personal information will be managed in accordance with the Envista Employee Privacy Notice.

Envista may automatically reject your application if you are not legally authorized to work in the region, country or state of the job posting or if you are not of legal working age at the time of job application.

IV.    DISCLOSURES OF PERSONAL INFORMATION AND INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS

Personal information about you will be shared internally for the purposes of filling the vacant role. This may include sharing it with Envista employees and agents that have a business need to know; such as: recruiters, human resource personnel, interviewers, and managers or their designees, technical service personnel if access to the data is necessary for the performance of their roles.

Personal information about you will be shared with third-parties acting on our behalf, such as third-parties assisting Envista with the operation of our careers Site including but not limited to recruitment agencies,  human resources consultants, applicant tracking systems, background verification and assessments etc.. All third-party service providers are required to take appropriate security measures to protect your personal information in alignment with our contractual obligations and the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal information for their own purposes. We only permit them to process your personal information for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

Some such third-party service providers may be located in territories outside of your country of residence, and may not provide a level of protection to personal information equivalent to that provided by your home country. Envista will (i) exercise appropriate due diligence in the selection of such third-party service providers, and (ii) require appropriate contractual measures, that such third-party service providers maintain adequate technical and organizational security measures in compliance with applicable legal requirements, in order to safeguard your personal information, and only to process it as instructed by Envista and for no other purposes.

To provide adequate protection for the transfers out of the EU, Envista utilizes transfer mechanisms recognized by your home country, which may include executing appropriate contractual clauses based on and conforming to the EU model clauses.

In some instances, the Site may provide links to non-Envista controlled websites. These can include links to social media sites (via “widgets”) like Facebook or LinkedIn. However, Envista does not control such third-party websites, and cannot be responsible for the content or the privacy practices employed by other websites.

V.    DATA SECURITY

•    Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
•    Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal information to comply with local law.

•    Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
•    Request restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal information in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data's accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
•    Request the transfer of your personal information to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal information in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
•    Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal information. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
