Why We Collect and Use Your Personal Information. Boeing collects and uses your personal information for the purpose of determining your qualifications for employment and reaching a hiring decision, as well as to comply with applicable laws and regulations, such as laws related to the evaluation of those seeking employment, or to defend ourselves in claims under such laws. Relevant portions of your personal information, if you are hired, also will be used to establish a basic employment record. We do not collect or use the personal information you submit as a job applicant for unrelated purposes.
How We Collect Personal Information about You. Most of the personal information Boeing collects about you is collected directly from your application and resume or curriculum vitae, which is stored on servers located in the United States. We may also collect this type of information from you through other channels and the data may be stored on servers in other jurisdictions. We may also collect information about you from third parties, in order to: (a) verify information about your credentials, such as education and prior employment, (b) follow-up on references that you may provide, and (c) conduct background investigations. It is Boeing's policy to collect such information from third parties only with your knowledge and agreement. Should Boeing wish to obtain such third party information about you, and you have not completed an employment application authorizing us to do so, we will contact you and request your authorization to proceed.
Disclosures of Your Personal Information. Access to your information will be restricted to those Boeing staff and designated agents who have a need to know the specific information in question in order to carry out their responsibilities with regard to recruitment or employment law. Your information may also be disclosed to governmental entities in compliance with applicable law in the US and other countries, such as to those agencies authorized to review and enforce equal opportunity laws. We do not disclose applicant information to job banks, or to other companies or external parties.
Your Access to Your Personal Information. If you provide your information through one of our recruitment channels, you will be informed how to access and update that information in that channel. Once you have established a Profile through the Boeing Careers@Boeing website, you will have online access to correct or update the information it contains. Once your resume is submitted for a specific opening, you will not be able to update the information contained in that copy of your resume. A new resume may be submitted when applying for other positions.
Retention and Deletion of Your Personal Information. Boeing retains your personal information only as long as is necessary for evaluation for employment, as well as to comply with applicable laws relating to the evaluation of those seeking employment. After this time, normally two years, your information is deleted, unless you consent to retaining the information for a longer period of time.
Safeguards. Boeing uses appropriate administrative, technical, personnel, and physical measures to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and unauthorized use or modification. In addition, we exercise special precautions in dealing with applicant personal data defined as sensitive by law. For example, when satisfactory completion of a medical examination is a condition for being hired, no medical information, apart from overall suitability or unsuitability for employment, is provided to hiring managers or stored in a new employee's personnel file.
Applicants from the European Union. As part of its commitment to privacy, Boeing participates in programs approved by the European Commission for the adequate protection of personal information transferred to and processed in the United States and requires all of its agents to abide by applicable requirements of these programs (these being the Safe Harbour program from 2004 until 2017 and the EU/U.S. Privacy Shield framework from 2016 to present). While applicant data is processed and transferred based upon the applicant’s informed consent, the personal data that is retained to maintain the employment records of successful applicants is the principles of these programs.
Communications from Boeing. Boeing may contact you, using the contact information you have provided, for purposes of responding to your application for a particular job or jobs. In addition, you may be notified about new jobs matching your preferences and other events and announcements if you consent to these types of processing.
Inquiries or Questions. If you have questions or concerns about Boeing's policies and practices for handling applicant personal information received through this website, you may call TotalAccess at 866-473-2016. If you provide data through another recruiting channel, additional contact information will be provided.
Consent to process personal information. Information you provide will be used based upon your consent to the provisions of this policy indicated by your submission of the data.
