Employment Candidate Privacy Notice

If you are submitting your personal information in order to be considered by Synopsys for current or future job opportunities, you acknowledge that the information you provide to Synopsys may be transferred to Synopsys' offices including its corporate office in the United States, and that this personal data may be shared with certain Synopsys employees and service providers for legitimate business purposes, only to the extent permitted by applicable law. If you are offered a job or become employed by Synopsys, Inc. or one of its subsidiaries, it will also be used for other employment-related purposes. By submitting your resume and any other application materials to us, you agree that we may use such information for recruitment, hiring and employment purposes (including transferring the data to other countries, transferring your information to other companies authorized to perform specific services for Synopsys, and/or other processing relevant to recruitment purposes).

Resumes should include information relevant to your employment history and education. Candidates should not disclose sensitive personal characteristics (gender, height, weight, religion, philosophical or political beliefs, financial data, etc.) in their communications.

If you are located in the European Economic Area, this privacy notice is issued to you by Synopsys as the controller responsible for the processing of your personal data, and the following further information applies to you: 

What Categories of Data does Synopsys Collect? 

You may provide to us, or we may collect about you, contact information (name, address), employment and education history, membership in professional organizations, and location information such as country of residence and physical event attendance. Data that you do not provide to us directly is collected from publicly available sources such as professional networking websites. 

What is the Purpose of the Data Collection? 
We process this data to be able to evaluate your qualifications and match you with current or future job opportunities, to process your application, and to contact you.

What is the Legal Basis of the Data Processing?
We process your personal data based on legitimate interests (evaluating your qualifications and matching you with employment opportunities, processing your application, and contacting you). We may also use your data to comply with applicable regulatory obligations and to respond to lawful requests, court orders, and legal process. We consider your privacy interests in this regard and redact personal information to the largest extent practicable to avoid affecting your privacy rights.

What Are My Rights with Respect to My Personal Data? 
You can contact us to obtain copies of your personal data or information about its processing by us. Subject to the applicable statutory prerequisites, you can also ask us to correct or erase your personal data, object to processing based on legitimate interests, or request the restriction of processing or portability. You can exercise these rights by contacting us at privacy@synopsys.com. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. You should understand that while pursuing a career opportunity with us is voluntary, it would not be possible to consider your application without processing some personal data about you.

Who Sees My Personal Data?

We share your personal data with our affiliates and service providers such as our recruiting management and applicant tracking provider, Kenexa BrassRing.  We and our affiliates and service providers process and store your personal data on servers in the United States, which has not received an unqualified adequacy decision by the European Commission. We provide adequate protection for your personal data by having entered into data processing agreements and data transfer agreements that include standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission. Such data processing agreements and data transfer agreement are available upon request by contacting us at privacy@synopsys.com.
