Additional Information for Residents of the European Economic Area (the “EEA”)

The below information applies to any Data Subject resident in the EEA.  For purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27th April 2016 (the “GDPR”), we act as a “data controller” and our headquarters is located in the United States at 1001 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20004.  As a data controller, we are responsible for deciding how we hold and use Personal Data about you.   

GDPR Data Protection Principles

In respect of the collection, holding, storage, use, and processing of your Personal Data:

  • We will process the data lawfully, fairly and in a transparent way.
  • We will obtain the data only for valid purposes that we have clearly explained to you and not used in any way that is incompatible with those purposes.
  • The data we collect will be relevant to the purposes we have told you about and limited only to those purposes.
  • We will take reasonable steps to ensure that the data is accurate and kept up to date.
  • Subject to applicable legal or other requirements, we will keep the data only as long as necessary.
  • We will use appropriate technical and/or organizational measures to ensure appropriate security of the data.

Transfer of Personal Data Outside of the EEA

The transfer of Personal Data from the UK/EEA to the Carlyle entities outside the EEA is governed by data transfer agreements which are in the form of the standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission (a copy of which can be obtained from us via the contact details below).

Where your Personal Data is processed by third parties outside the EEA, we will ensure appropriate safeguards are in place to adequately protect it, as required by applicable law, including the execution of standard contractual clauses (referred to above) if the recipients are not located in a country with adequate data protection laws (as determined by the European Commission) or certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield framework.

GDPR Data Subject Rights

Under the GDPR, in certain circumstances, an EEA-resident Data Subject has certain individual rights with respect to the Personal Data that we hold about them.  In particular, you may have the right to:

  • Request access to any data held about you
  • Ask to have inaccurate data amended
  • Request data held about you to be deleted, provided the data is not required by Carlyle to perform a contract, defend a legal claim or to comply with applicable laws or regulations
  • Prevent or restrict processing of data which is no longer required
  • Request transfer of appropriate data to a third party where this is technically feasible

Additionally, in the circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your Personal Data for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.

To exercise any of these rights, please contact us using the contact details set out under the “Contact and Complaints” heading above.

Automated Decision Making

We respect your legal rights not to be subject to decisions that are based solely on automated processing of your Personal Data, including profiling, especially where such processing has legal or other significant effects on you.  In establishing and carrying out a business relationship, we generally do not use any automated decision making pursuant to the GDPR.  We may process some of your Personal Data automatically, with the goal of assessing certain personal aspects (profiling), such as to comply with legal or regulatory obligations to combat money laundering, terrorism financing, and offenses that pose a danger to assets.  [We also use assessment tools in order to be able to allow communications and marketing to be tailored as needed.]

Complaints to Local Authorities

As a resident of the EEA, you are also entitled to direct any complaints in relation to our processing of your Personal Data to your national or local data protection supervisory authority.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your Personal Data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive.

Additional Information for Residents of California

The information below may apply to Data Subjects who are residents of California.    

California Data Subject Rights

California’s “Shine the Light” law permits California residents to annually request and obtain information free of charge about what Personal Information is disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. For more information on these disclosures, please contact us using the contact details set out under the “Contact and Complaints” heading above.

In addition, Data Subjects in California may have a right under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) to request erasure of their personal data or access to personal data that we have collected in the last twelve (12) months.

You may submit requests for access or erasure of your personal information by calling 1-855-283-9736 (Domestic US only) or contacting us at dppc@carlyle.com.

Individuals who submit requests for access or erasure of personal information will be required to verify their identity by answering certain questions. We will not disclose or delete any information until identity is verified.

If you are making a request for access, we may not be able to provide specific pieces of personal information if the disclosure creates a substantial, articulable, and unreasonable risk to the security of your personal information, your account with us, or our systems or networks.

If you are making a request for erasure, we will ask that you confirm that you would like us to delete your personal information again before your request is addressed.

You may designate an authorized agent to submit a request on your behalf by providing that agent with your written permission. If an agent makes a request on your behalf, we may still ask that you verify your identity directly with us before we can honor the request.

Agents who make requests on behalf of individuals, will be required to verify the request by submitting written authorization from the individual. We will not honor any requests from agents until authorization is verified.

Under the CCPA, you cannot be discriminated against for exercising your rights to access or request erasure of their personal data.

The data controller, business, accountable entity or organization applicable to you is the Carlyle or AlpInvest entity to which you are applying. 

Please be aware that any relevant misrepresentation or false statements you make in your application or during the recruitment process may, as permitted by applicable law, be sufficient cause for: (1) disqualification from consideration for employment with us; or (2) discipline up to and including termination from employment should the relevant misrepresentation or false statements affect the basis of the employment relationship with us.

You may be requested to provide some or all of the personal data described in this Privacy Notice as part of the application and recruitment process. If you fail to provide the personal data when requested, and this personal data is necessary for us to consider your application (such as evidence of qualifications or work history) or otherwise to comply with our legal or contractual obligations, we will not be able to process your application or continue the recruitment process. In all other cases, the provision of your personal data is voluntary. 

HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA

We will only use your personal data where we have a justifiable purpose or purposes for doing so or the law otherwise allows or requires us to, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use the data for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. Where required by applicable law, we will not use or otherwise process your personal data for a secondary or unrelated purpose without first obtaining your consent. You should be aware that it is not a condition of your contract with us that you agree to any request for consent from us.

    This includes deciding whether to employ you in a specific role that would be beneficial to our business; keeping records related to our hiring processes; where permitted, for the purposes of “talent pooling” and contacting you about opportunities that may arise in future; protecting our legal rights; maintaining the security and integrity of our facilities, equipment and electronic platforms; maintaining information on the business and technical environment in which we operate; monitoring compliance with our protocols and policies; and taking reasonably necessary steps to ensure that we have appropriate and effective health screening measure in place.

    This includes conducting pandemic viral-related testing (such as thermal and symptom screening, temperature checks and medical attestations), symptom tracking and contact tracing (location) information (including any personal/business related travel location and quarantine information).
  • Where you have given consent
    Where required or permitted by applicable law, we may ask you for your consent to carry out certain processing activities, including verification and background checks, or as otherwise required by applicable law, where this is required in connection with your role. Where we process personal data based on your consent, you can withdraw your consent at any time where this is permitted by applicable law. 

Automated decision-making

We respect your legal rights not to be subject to decisions that are based solely on automated processing of your personal data, including profiling, especially where such processing has legal or other significant effects on you.

We inform our applicants about any such automated decisions. Subject to certain exceptions, we usually obtain the relevant individual’s explicit consent before making any decisions based solely on automated processing activities and put in place appropriate safeguards to protect their rights, freedoms and legitimate interests in these circumstances.

We will not make any automated decisions based on sensitive personal data unless we have obtained explicit consent from individuals to do so, or this is otherwise necessary for substantial public interest reasons based on applicable law.

HOW WE WILL USE SENSITIVE PERSONAL DATA 

We collect, process and otherwise use your sensitive personal data for the following specific purposes, including and to the extent that such purposes are required or permitted by applicable law:

  • Where necessary for the purposes of carrying out obligations in the field of employment, social security and social protection law

  • Where necessary for reasons of substantial public interest
    This includes conducting pandemic viral-related testing (such as thermal and symptom screening, temperature checks and medical attestations), symptom tracking and contact tracing (location) information (including any personal/business related travel location and quarantine information).
  • Where necessary to protect your vital interests where you are physically or legally incapable of giving consent
    This includes providing personal data to medical advisers if you were to fall seriously ill during a visit to our premises. This legal basis for processing is only relied upon in “life or death” type situations. 
  • Where you have given consent
    Where required by applicable law, we may ask you for your consent to carry out certain processing activities, including verification, background or criminal records checks, or to use your sensitive personal data where we do not have another legal basis to do so (for example, to share your sensitive personal data with investors or other third parties).

Subject to applicable law, where we have a legitimate business need to process sensitive personal data for purposes not identified above, we will only do so where permitted by applicable law and, if required, only after providing you with notice and obtaining you prior, express consent.

HOW WE WILL SHARE YOUR PERSONAL DATA 

We will only disclose your personal data to third parties where permitted or required by law or to our employees, contractors, designated agents or third-party service providers and data intermediaries who require the personal data to assist us with administering the recruitment process, including third-party data processors, service providers and data intermediaries who provide services to us or on our behalf. We may use third-party data processors, service providers and data intermediaries for various purposes, including but not limited to obtaining employment verification and background checks and data storage or hosting. These third-party data processors, service providers and data intermediaries may be located outside of the country in which you live or the country where the position you have applied for is located, including the United States of America, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Singapore, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and the member states of the European Economic Area.

We do not permit our third-party data processors, service providers and data intermediaries to process your personal data for their own purposes. We only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes in accordance with our instructions. In no other circumstances will we transfer or disclose any of your personal data to any third party, without your prior consent, unless permitted or required to do so under applicable laws or regulations. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your personal data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Notice and applicable law.

We and our data processors, service providers and data intermediaries may also disclose your personal data for the following additional purposes where this is permitted or required by applicable law:

  • To other Carlyle or AlpInvest companies and affiliates (including those located outside of your home jurisdiction) for the purposes set out in this Privacy Notice and as necessary to administer the application and recruitment process. In general, our group entities are not permitted to share your personal data with other non-affiliates entities, except as described herein or otherwise permitted by applicable laws.
  • As part of our regular reporting activities to other members of our group of companies.
  • To comply with legal obligations or valid legal processes such as search warrants, subpoenas or court orders. When we disclose your personal data to comply with a legal obligation or legal process, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that we only disclose the minimum personal data necessary for the specific purpose and circumstances.
  • To protect our rights and property or if we believe that your actions violate applicable law.
  • During emergencies or where necessary to protect the safety of our employees or other individuals.
  • Where the personal data is publicly available. 
  • If a business transfer or change in ownership occurs and the disclosure is necessary to complete the transaction. In these circumstances, we will limit data sharing to what is necessary and will anonymize the data where possible.
  • For additional purposes with your consent where such consent is required by law.

We do not sell your personal data and have not done so in the past 12 months, nor do we provide your personal data to third parties for those parties’ direct marketing purposes without having first obtained your consent where this is required by applicable law.

TRANSFERRING PERSONAL DATA ACROSS BORDERS

We may transfer your personal data outside of your country of residence or the country in which the entity to which you are applying is located. These countries (which can include the United States of America, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Singapore, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and member states of the European Economic Area) may not be deemed to provide the same level of data protection as in your country of residence. Where required by and in accordance with the measures permitted under the law that apply to our processing of your personal data, we will ensure that your personal data receives at least the same standards of data protection as would be the case in your country of residence, including by:

  • Transferring personal data to countries that are deemed by relevant authorities to offer adequate protection for personal data. 
  • Using standard contractual clauses approved by relevant authorities as ensuring adequate safeguards for personal data. 
  • Entering into agreements with recipient parties that require them to process the personal data to a standard that is no less than is required by the law in your home jurisdiction.
  • Obtaining your consent to transfer your personal data after first informing you about the possible risks of such a transfer. 
  • Where the transfer is necessary for the performance of a contract between you and us, or if the transfer is necessary for the performance of a contract between us and a third party and the contract was entered into in your interest.

DATA SECURITY

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need-to-know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions, and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality. We have put in place procedures to deal with any data security incident and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

HOW WE WILL RETAIN YOUR PERSONAL DATA 

We will process and store your personal data for at least as long as it is necessary in order to fulfil our applicable obligations. Subject to those qualifications, our goal is to keep such data for no longer than necessary in relation to the purposes for which we collect and use the personal data (we refer to the purposes as set forth above).

If you are offered and accept employment with us, the personal data we collected during the application and recruitment process will become part of your employment record, and we may use it in connection with your employment consistent with our Books & Records Policy and Employee and Member Privacy Notice, the latter of which will be provided to you on or around the time you accept the offer. If you have any specific questions in this respect, please feel free to contact us.

If you do not become an employee, we will retain and securely destroy your personal data. We will only retain your personal data for as long as is reasonably necessary in the circumstances and, where permitted by applicable law, for a period of 12 months after we have communicated to you our decision about whether to employ you, unless it is in our legitimate business interest to retain the personal data for a longer period, or we are otherwise required or permitted to do so by law. 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may seek your consent to retain your personal data for a longer period of time for the purposes of considering you for further opportunities that may arise with us in future. 

YOUR PERSONAL DATA RIGHTS 

It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during the application and recruitment process with us. You can do this by contacting us at dppc@carlyle.com or by updating your personal data directly using Job Portal.

You have certain rights in relation to your personal data, including the right to:

  • Request access to any personal data held about you. This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check we are lawfully processing it. In certain cases, we may also be required to provide details of how we have used or disclosed your personal data in the 12 months preceding your request.
  • Request correction of the personal data we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate personal data we hold about you corrected and/or updated.
  • Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. 
  • Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate business interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation that makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You may also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. 
  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal data about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it. 
  • Request the transfer of your personal data to a third party where this is technically feasible. 
  • Withdraw consent. Where the processing of your personal data is based on consent, you may have the right to withdraw your consent for processing for that purpose at any time. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your application and, subject to our retention policy, we will dispose of your personal data securely. 
  • Right to complain about our processing of your personal data to your national or local data protection authority. 

To exercise any of these your applicable rights, please contact us on the details provided below. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your applicable privacy rights. 

You may be required to verify your identity by answering certain questions and we may not fulfil your request until your identity is verified. You may designate an authorized agent to submit a request on your behalf by providing that agent with your written permission. If an agent makes a request on your behalf, we may still ask that you verify your identity directly with us before we can honor the request. Agents who make requests on your behalf will be required to verify the request by submitting written authorization from you. We will not honor any requests from agents until authorization is verified.

We keep this Privacy Notice under regular review and it may be amended from time to time. We will update the date at the top of the Privacy Notice accordingly. On some occasions, we may also actively advise you of specific personal data handling activities or significant changes to this Privacy Notice as required by applicable law. Where required, we will inform you of these changes by providing the updated Privacy Notice to you via email or by uploading it to the Job Portal.
