  • Job Applications

    • You can provide us with an application for open positions. The application process will be conducted by us, as well as SIBUR BSC LLC (located at 6 Kovalikhinskaya str., Nizhniy Novgorod, Russian Federation). The following data will be used: name and contact details, all the personal data you provide in your application, in particular training, further knowledge and qualifications, earlier employers and sent documents such as CV, certificates, test scores

    • Purpose: Recruiting of staff and processing of your application.

    • Legal basis: Processing is necessary in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract (Art 6 para 1 lit b) and your consent – Art 6 (1) lit. a) GDPR.

Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which SIBUR International GmbH obtains consent for a specific processing purpose.

If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6 (1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning products or services.

Is SIBUR International GmbH subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 (1) lit. d GDPR.

Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by SIBUR International GmbH or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data.

5.      Who receives your data?

Within SIBUR International GmbH only those departments or employees receive your data, as far as they need it for processing for the corresponding purposes. In addition, commissioned by us processors receive your data, if they need the data to fulfil their respective performance. All processors have been carefully selected and take appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure that your data is processed in accordance with data protection obligations and that your rights are protected. Above all, contract processors are not permitted to use your personal data for their own purposes.

Moreover, data regarding contact persons at customers and suppliers will be transferred to the following group companies in Russia, Turkey and China, which are third countries without adequate level of data protection:

  • head company of the group, PJSC “SIBUR Holding”

  • Subsidiaries of PJSC “SIBUR Holding” providing management, logistics and business support for SIBUR Group companies

  • Wholly owned subsidiaries of SIBUR International GmbH, responsible for supplying the SIBUR Group companies’ products to Europe and Asia

  • Subsidiaries of PJSC “SIBUR Holding, being petrochemical companies

  • Subsidiaries of PJSC “SIBUR Holding, being hydrocarbon and gas processing companies

  • And additionally, with regard to job applicants:

  • Our IT services providers

  • Talent Q Pro with regard to IQ tests

With regard to a transfer of data to other third parties (i.e. other group companies), we point out that such a transfer is made only on the basis of a valid legal basis and for pre-determined purposes.

Your personal data may be transferred abroad, including to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) where the level of data security is not considered sufficient by the European Commission. In such case, SIBUR International GmbH will take the steps to ensure adequate protection of your personal information to the extent required by applicable law (e.g. concluding standard data protection clauses). A copy of these standard data protection clauses will be provided by SIBUR International GmbH upon request.

6.      Update

The updating of your personal data takes place primarily on the basis of your direct feedback or change notices to us. However, updating is also possible due to information from third parties or the use of publicly available information.

7.      How long will your data be stored?

We process your personal data, as far as necessary, for the duration of our business relationship (initiation, processing and termination of a contract) as well as in accordance with the statutory storage and documentation obligations arising from the Austrian Commercial Code (UGB) and the Federal Tax Code (BAO) or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

In addition, the storage period is also judged by the statutory limitation periods, which may be, for example, under the General Civil Code (ABGB) usually 30 years, in some cases, but only 3 years.

Basically, your data will therefore be deleted after complete execution of the contract, revocation of your consent or your objection, if the storage for the fulfilment of a legal obligation or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims is not required. Further processing will only take place if you have expressly consented to the further use of your data or if we have reserved any further data processing that is permitted by law.

Job application data will in any case be stored for the duration of the recruitment process and exceeding this for the additional duration of 5 years to be kept in evidence for future recruitment processes and job offers.

There is the possibility that anonymization of the data is carried out instead of a deletion. In this case, any personal reference is irretrievably removed, which is why the data protection cancellation obligations no longer apply. In this case, no personal reference can be restored.

8.      Your rights

Under the GDPR you have the following rights:

  • Right of access – Art. 15 GDPR: the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning yourself are being processed, and, where that is the case, access to the personal data;

  • Right to rectification – Art. 16 GDPR: the right to obtain without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning yourself;

  • Right to erasure (‘right to be forgotten’) – Art. 17 GDPR: the right to obtain the erasure of your personal data concerning yourself without undue delay;

  • Right to object – Art. 21 GDPR: the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning yourself which is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. e) or f) GDPR.

If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or if your data protection claims have otherwise been violated in a way, you can complain to the supervisory authority. In Austria the data protection authority is responsible.

You are also required to notify us of any changes in your data. Without this data, we will usually have to refuse the conclusion of the contract or the execution of the contract or an existing contract can no longer be performed and consequently terminated.
