This Privacy Notice describes how Maxar Technologies Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively, “Maxar”) collect and process Personal Information about you during the application and recruitment process. This Privacy Notice also describes the Personal Information that we collect, how we use your Personal Information, when we may disclose your Personal Information to third parties, when we may transfer your Personal Information outside of your home country, and your rights regarding your access and deletion of your Personal Information.
We will only process your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Notice unless otherwise required by applicable law. We take steps to ensure that the Personal Information that we collect is accurate, relevant, not excessive, and processed for limited purposes. You understand that failure to provide or allow us to process Personal Information may affect our ability to recruit or evaluate your application or to offer you employment.
For purposes of this Privacy Notice, “Personal Information” means any information that identifies or can be used to identify or authenticate an individual. Personal Information excludes anonymous, de-identified and/or aggregated data that is not, and cannot be, associated with a particular individual.
We may collect Personal Information directly from you, as a job applicant, such as by your entry of Personal Information in support of an application on Maxar’s Careers website. We also may collect Personal Information received from third parties such as recruiters or executive search firms, as well as in connection with a background, employment, or reference checks, subject to your consent where required by law.
To carry out our recruiting and applicant evaluation activities, we may collect, store, and process the following categories of Personal Information:
We only process your Personal Information with your consent, where applicable law permits or requires it in connection with carrying out our application and recruitment process, to take steps necessary to enter into an employment contract with you, where the processing is necessary to comply with a legal obligation that applies to us, or for our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of third parties.

You will not be subject to hiring decisions based solely on automated data processing without your prior consent.
Only when necessary to carry out our obligations under employment law, where voluntarily provided, where we have a legitimate need, or as applicable law otherwise permits, we may collect and process sensitive and/or special categories of Personal Information, including:
We will only disclose your Personal Information to third parties where required by law or to Maxar employees, contractors, designated agents, or third-party service providers who require such information to assist us with administering the recruitment process. We may use third-party service providers for various purposes, including, but not limited to, obtaining candidate searches and initial contact, employment verification and background checks, and data storage or hosting. We require our third-party service providers to only process your data in accordance with our instructions and to implement appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your Personal Information. We may also disclose your Personal Information for the following additional purposes where permitted or required by applicable law:
We may transfer the Personal Information we collect about you to other jurisdictions that are outside your home country and may not provide the same legally required level of data protection. Therefore, we have implemented appropriate contractual and legally required safeguards to ensure the lawfulness and security of these transfers throughout all jurisdictions.
We have implemented appropriate physical, technical, and organizational security measures designed to secure your Personal Information against accidental loss and unauthorized access, use, alteration, or disclosure. In addition, we limit access to Personal Information to those employees, agents, contractors, and other third parties that have a legitimate business need for such access.
Except as otherwise permitted or required by applicable law or regulation, we will only retain your Personal Information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, as required to satisfy any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements, or as necessary to resolve disputes. Under some circumstances we may anonymize your Personal Information so that it can no longer be associated with you. We reserve the right to use such anonymous and de-identified data for any legitimate business purpose without further notice to you or your consent.
If you are offered and accept employment with us, the Personal Information 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 employee privacy policies. If you do not become an employee, we will retain and securely destroy your Personal Information in accordance with our document retention policy and applicable laws and regulations.
Please keep us informed if your Personal Information changes during the recruitment process. By law you may have the right to request access to, correct, and erase the Personal Information that we hold about you, or object to the processing of your Personal Information under certain circumstances. You may also have the right to request that we transfer your Personal Information to another party. If you want to review, verify, correct, or request erasure of your Personal Information, object to the processing of your Personal Information, or request that we transfer a copy of your Personal Information to another party, please first login and review the “Candidate Home” tab on the Maxar Careers website. There you can review, verify, correct, request deletion, or download a copy of Personal Information that you entered in connection with your application.

We may require specific information from you to confirm your identity and your right to access.

If we cannot provide you with access to your Personal Information, we will inform you of the reasons why, subject to any legal or regulatory restrictions.
Where you have provided your consent to the collection, processing, and transfer of your Personal Information, you may have the legal right to withdraw your consent under certain circumstances. To withdraw your consent, if applicable, contact us at email@example.com.
