Can I add my own privacy policy to applications?


By default, SmartRecruiters adds a disclaimer notifying candidates that that their personal data is bound by your privacy policy at the end of the candidate application. The disclaimer looks like this:

Please be informed that your application to this job offer will trigger some processing of your personal data by the recruiting company, the data controller. SmartRecruiters, the data processor, has no control over such personal data processing. For more information on these personal data processing, please refer to the recruiting company’s privacy policy.

In the Global Compliance setting, you will now be able to decide which line of wording you would like to use in the consent sentence for your privacy policy. Administrators will be able to choose between “read and understand” versus “read and agree”. Depending on what you choose, the change will be propagated in the application experience and the consent request screen. 

Once setup, "privacy policy" will be linked to the URL you have added in your country settings in addition to their Imprint (aka, Impressum or Corporate Information) as is commonly required in Austria, Germany and Switzerland among others.
