  1. The subject of the agreement and the scope of the services

Alexion Global Talents offers various career services through its platforms, some of which you can use without registering. Registering a Candidate Portal account provides you with additional features and services. In order to provide you with the specific services for which you have registered, or to calculate the duration, we store the date of your most recent activity on the Alexion Global Talents platforms (“Date of Last Activity”), which may include the date of your registration and your most recent use of Alexion Global Talents services, e.g., the date of your last registration. For example, logging into your Candidate Portal account, clicking links in the Alexion Global Talents newsletter or on the Alexion Global Talents Career site, or using an Alexion Global Talents profile, or any other activity that indicates that you are still interested in using our services.

  1. Services available without registration

Without registering a Candidate Portal account you can use all the services available on our website without registering. In particular, you may browse job offers posted on our website.

4.Candidate Portal Account

You can register in our Candidate Portal. Then you will receive regular e-mails about entries that match your profile and/or your search behaviour on the Alexion Global Talents platforms. To ensure authentication, i.e. to avoid unauthorized subscriptions, and if we cannot otherwise identify you (for example, if you are not already logged into your Candidate Portal account), we will send you a confirmation email after your first registration asking you to confirm your registration again by clicking a link in the email.

Certain services are only available as part of a Candidate Portal account. If you enter into a Candidate Portal Account Agreement, you may use the additional services described below. How to register for a Candidate Portal Account is described in Section 3.

5.Saved entries

You can access job ads in your Candidate Portal account.

Candidate Profile

You may create a resume profile (“Profile”) within your Candidate Portal account that consists of various information related to your resume and attachments provided by you. If you provide attachments, we analyze their content and structure in a non-automated process and use this analysis to improve the services we offer you. You can use your profile to apply for jobs posted on Alexion Global Talents or other websites or apps. We use your profile information to automatically complete certain fields on the application form and you can upload additional files. Once you click on each button, we will either – store the information you provide on the application form on the Alexion Global Talents platform for the employee seeking company to access, or – submit it to the employee seeking company of their choice. When we store the application on our platform, the employee seeking company also has access to your profile and can view the information you have entered in your profile. Because Alexion Global Talents clients from all over the world can post job advertisements on our platforms, it is possible that the employee seeking company may be located outside the EU or the European Economic Area (“EEA”), and it is therefore part of the agreement that such companies from other countries may also have access to your data. We also use the information you provide as part of your profile to send you job recommendations based on your profile information and tailored to your needs. We may also use your profile information to automatically complete forms for any other service we offer you on our platforms.In addition, when you activate your profile, you grant Alexion Global Talents to customers who have purchased access to the Alexion Global Talents database or otherwise to use it or other services that allow recruiters to access or have provided resumes from our users, are authorized to fill vacant positions (“Applicant Profile Clients”), have access (including a search and download function) to portions of your profile and its attachments, and to the date of your most recent activity, and disclose such information to them, which Applicant Profile Clients may be recruiters or employers. We may also analyze a partially active profile to actively present it to Candidate Profile clients. As Alexion Global Talents clients from all over the world may purchase access to the Applicant Tracking System Zoho database, it is possible that the respective employee-seeking company is located outside the EU or the European Economic Area (“EEA”), which means that access and disclosure may also take place from and to such third countries. Current employers, names, e-mail addresses and telephone numbers are not displayed for partially active profiles, and only the first digit of the postal code is displayed. If you make your profile active and public, you will grant candidate profile customers access (including a search and download function) to your profile and its attachments, as well as to the date of your last activity, and you will disclose this information to them. In the case of an active and public profile, we may also use your profile data to find publicly accessible business-related social media profiles about you and to provide a link to such a profile to candidate profile customers. We may also analyze your profile to actively present it, in whole or in part, to candidate profile customers. Because Alexion Global Talents clients from around the world may purchase access to the Applicant Tracking System Zoho database, it is possible that the employee seeking company may be located outside the EU or the European Economic Area (“EEA”), and data may therefore be transferred to such third countries. We do not guarantee or warrant minimum storage capacity for your profile. We reserve the right to temporarily or permanently limit the data volume for data uploads, particularly if this is necessary for technical reasons, for example to maintain or optimise the service.

  1. Application for box number advertisements

A box number advertisement is a job advertisement in which the company searching for an employee is not specified. If you reply to a job advertisement with a box number, we forward your application, including the cover letter and all data contained therein, to the customer with this box number. We do not periodically review the content of your message. But we are entitled to do so. If the content of your letter violates these Terms of Use, we will not forward it. We accept blocking notices for certain companies if you have given us the detailed and correct name (name and legal form of the company) and address. Due to the time-consuming research involved, however, we do not accept blocking notices for an entire group of companies.

7.Application history

Within your Candidate Account, we store your applications (including their attachments such as resumes or cover letters) to job postings published on Alexion Global Talents platforms in a history that can be accessed through your Candidate Portal account. Information from such applications may be used to automatically fill in fields when you create an Alexion Global Talents profile.
