Privacy Notice for Candidates (California Citizens)


Brewer Science is committed to protecting the privacy and security of your personal information. This Privacy Notice describes how Brewer Science (“the Company”) collects and uses personal information about you during the recruitment process in accordance with data protection legislations, specifically the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).

CCPA defines “personal data” as information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household (last name, first name, address, data of birth, etc.). Your personal data is collected and processed by the Company in a good faith, legal, and transparent manner.

The Company is required under data protection legislation to notify you of the information contained in this Privacy Notice.

It is important that you read this notice to ensure you are aware of how and why your personal data will be used in the recruitment process as you apply for a position with the Company and the duration for which it will usually be retained. It provides you with certain information that must be provided under the CCPA.

4. How we will use information about you

We will use the personal information we collect about you during the recruitment process to:


When we receive your CV or resume, application form, and cover letter (if applicable), we will then process that information to decide whether you meet the basic requirements to be short-listed for the role. It is in our legitimate interest to decide whether to consider you for the position by deciding whether your application is strong enough to move to the next stage of the recruitment process, i.e., phone or on-site interview. If we decide to invite you for an interview, we will use the information you provide to us at the interview stage of the process to decide whether to offer you the position. If we decide to offer you the position, we will then take up references and/or carry out a criminal records check and/or carry out drug screening before confirming your appointment. The requirements for checking references, carrying out criminal records checks, and conducting drug screenings are specific to hiring location and position being filled.


5. If you fail to provide personal information

If you fail to provide information when requested that is necessary for us to consider your application, such as evidence of qualifications or work history, we will not be able to process your application successfully. For example, if we require references for this role and you fail to provide us with relevant details, we will not be able to take your application further.


6. How we use sensitive personal information

If provided to Brewer Science through the application process, we will use your sensitive personal information in the following ways:


7. Information about criminal convictions

When recruiting for a position in our US operations, we may process information about criminal convictions where allowed by law.

If we would like to offer you the position, we may collect information about your criminal convictions history on the condition that checks and any other conditions, such as references, are satisfactory. We are entitled to carry out a criminal records check in order to satisfy ourselves that there is nothing in your criminal convictions history that makes you unsuitable for the role.


8. Automated decision-making

You will not be subject to decisions that will have a significant impact on you based solely on automated decision-making.


9. Data sharing

Why might BSI share my personal information with service providers or third parties?

We will only share your personal information with the following service providers or third parties for the purposes of processing your application:

All our service providers and third-party entities in the group are required to take appropriate security measures to protect your personal information in line with our policies. We do not allow our service providers or third parties to use your personal data for their own purposes. We only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

Brewer Science is a global organization, and we have offices and operations in a number of international locations; therefore, we share personal data between the Brewer Science organization for business and administrative reasons only and between internal employees for the purpose it was provided (i.e. for legitimate business purposes).

Brewer Science does not sell any personal information.

Brewer Science does not knowingly collect or share personal information of consumers under 16 years of age.


10. Data security

Brewer Science has put in place measures to protect the security of your information.

Service providers will only process your personal information on our instructions and where they have agreed to treat the information confidentially and keep it secure.

Brewer Science has put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered, or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those employees, agents, contractors, and other service providers who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal information on our instructions, and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality. To request details of these measures, please contact the Privacy Champion at

Brewer Science has put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable supervisory authority of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.


11. Data retention

How long will BSI use my information?

Brewer Science will retain your personal information as local legislation requires and defines after we have communicated to you our decision about whether to appoint you to the role.

We retain your personal information for that period so we can show, in the event of a legal claim, that we have not discriminated against candidates on prohibited grounds and have conducted the recruitment exercise in a fair and transparent way.

In addition, we will ask your permission to be considered for other job opportunities in the application process; this will retain your information in our recruiting system for future opportunities. If we wish to consider you, we will write to you separately seeking your explicit consent to retain your personal information for a fixed period on that basis.


12. Rights of access, correction, erasure, and restriction

Your rights in connection with personal information

Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:


If you want to access, correct, or request deletion of your personal information; limit the processing of your personal data; or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please contact the Privacy Champion directly in writing at
