This Job Candidate Privacy Notice (“Notice”) describes what personal data we, Rapyd Financial Network Ltd. and our associated companies (“Rapyd“, “we“, “our” or “us“), collect and process on our job candidates and applicants (“Candidates”, “you” or “your”) with respect to our application and recruitment process, why we collect it and how we use it. It also describes how Candidates may exercise their rights to such data held with us.
We strongly urge you to read this Notice and make sure that you fully understand and agree to it. If you do not agree to this Notice, please avoid providing us with your data.
You are not legally required to provide us with any personal data, but without it we may not be able to process your application.
1. What data do we collect, how do we collect it, and how do we use it?
Throughout the application and recruitment process, you may provide us (or we may otherwise have access to) personal data about you, such as your identifying data, contact details, resume/CV, work-related data, public social media activity, etc. We may collect this data directly from you, as you provide it voluntarily through your application and candidacy review process, or from other sources such as recruitment agencies, background check services (as applicable and subject to applicable law), or your references.
We may use such data to assess your skills, qualifications and overall to verify, consider and process your application and candidacy for any of our positions, and to communicate with you regarding such processes. We may also use it to manage risk and enhance our security and anti-fraud measures, and to create aggregated statistical or inferred data regarding our Candidates, for further development and improvement of our recruitment processes.
In addition, we may use it to act as permitted by, and to comply with, any legal or regulatory requirements. Shall we wish to conduct any additional activities that may require the use of your data, we will request your specific consent in advance.
2. Where do we store our Candidates’ data?
The main locations in which your Personal Data will be maintained, processed and stored by Rapyd and our Service Providers (as defined in Section 5 below) are Israel, the USA, Singapore, Iceland and the EU, or the Rapyd location where you are located.
Rapyd is headquartered in Israel, which is considered by the European Commission to be offering an adequate level of protection for the personal data of EU Member State residents.
While privacy laws may vary between jurisdictions, Rapyd, its affiliates and Service Providers processing personal data on our behalf (as discussed below) are each committed to protect personal data in accordance with this notice, customary industry standards, and such appropriate lawful mechanisms and contractual terms requiring adequate data protection, regardless of any lesser legal requirements that may apply in the jurisdiction to which such data is transferred.
3. For how long may we keep your data?
We may retain your data even after the applied position has been filled or closed. This is done so we could reconsider Candidates for other positions and opportunities at Rapyd; so we could use their personal data as reference for future applications submitted by them; in case the Candidate is hired, for additional employment and business purposes related to their work; and as reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse, enforce our agreements or otherwise protect our legitimate interests.
4. How will we secure your data?
Rapyd has implemented security measures designed to protect the personal data of our Candidates, including physical, procedural and electronic measures. These measures provide sound industry standard security. We also regularly seek new ways and tools for further enhancing the security of our system and the integrity of the personal data that we hold. Please note however, that regardless of the measures we take and the efforts we make, we cannot and do not guarantee the absolute protection and security of any personal data stored with us.
5. Who will have access to your data?
Rapyd will share your personal data with several selected Service Providers, whose services and solutions complement, facilitate and enhance our own. These include any recruitment firms that have referred you to us (or vice versa), candidate evaluation centers, background checks providers, recruitment software providers, data and cyber security services, web analytics, and our business, legal, compliance and financial advisors (collectively, “Service Providers“). Such Service Providers may receive or otherwise have limited access to our Candidates’ personal data, depending on each of their particular roles and purposes in facilitating and enhancing our recruitment process, and may only use it for such purposes. Rapyd remains responsible and liable for any personal data processing conducted by Service Providers on its behalf, except for events outside of its reasonable control.
Additionally, we may disclose or otherwise allow access to any Candidates’ personal data pursuant to a legal request, such as a subpoena, search warrant or court order, or in compliance with applicable laws, with or without notice to you, if we have a good faith belief that we are legally required to do so, or that disclosure is appropriate in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding actual or suspected illegal activity, fraud or other wrongdoing. We may also share your personal data with others, with or without notice to you, if we believe in good faith that this will help protect the rights, property or personal safety of Rapyd, any of our customers or employees, or any member of the general public.
Finally, we may share personal data internally within our family of companies, for the purposes described above. In addition, should Rapyd undergo any change in control, including by means of merger, acquisition or purchase of all or part of its assets, your personal data may be shared with the parties involved in such event.
6. Which Cookies and tracking technologies do we use?
Rapyd uses certain monitoring and tracking technologies, such as Cookies and other downloaded data files, including ones offered by our Service Providers. These technologies are used in order to maintain, provide and improve our processes and operations on an ongoing basis, and in order to provide a better experience to our website visitors and Candidates. For example, these technologies enable us to better secure our website and services and detect abnormal behaviors, to identify technical issues, and to monitor and improve the overall performance of our services and processes. In order to delete or block any Cookies, please refer to the “Help” area on your internet browser for further instructions, or look for optional third-party add-ons offering Cookie management assistance. For example, you can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting Cookies or to prompt you before accepting a Cookie from the website you visit.
On some pages of our website, online platform and services (“Services”), other organisations may also set their own Cookies. They do this to track the activity of their applications that are integrated with our Services to customize their services for you. Because of how cookies work, our Services cannot access these Cookies, nor can the other organisation access the data in Cookies we use on our Services.
Please note that we do not change our practices in response to a “Do Not Track” signal in the HTTP header from a browser or mobile application.
7. How can you access your data or request to delete it?

Please note that we may require additional information, including certain personal data, in order to authenticate and process your request. Such additional information may be then retained by us for legal purposes (e.g. as proof of the identity of the person submitting the request), in accordance with Section 3 above. We may redact from the data which we will make available to you, any personal data related to others.
Please also note that such rights are not absolute. There are instances where applicable law or regulatory requirements allow or require us to refuse to provide some or all of the personal data that we hold about you. In the event that we cannot accommodate your request, we will inform you of the reasons why, subject to any legal or regulatory restrictions.
