The information submitted during the selection process will be used solely for that purpose. The legal basis for the processing is found in the Rules governing the traineeship scheme of the European Chemicals Agency.
The European Chemicals Agency will ensure on its part that applicants' personal data is processed as required by Regulation (EC) No 45/2001 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data by the Community institutions and bodies and on the free movement of such data. Only ECHA staff directly involved in the selection procedure in question shall have access to this data. In some cases an external contractor, equally bound by the same data protection principles, might assist the Agency in the pre-selection of candidates.
Documents related to recruited candidates are kept in the trainee's file, and some limited data is kept until 50 years after the end of the traineeship for the purpose of providing traineeship certificates.
Any party submitting personal data to ECHA is entitled to access and rectify that data (after the closing date of the application deadline, rectification is limited to identification data however). To exercise these rights, contact the data controller at firstname.lastname@example.org. Furthermore, you also have the right to recourse at any time to the European Data Protection Supervisor.
