2. PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT – SOURCES AND CATEGORIES

We will collect your personal data to process and consider your application for employment; to comply with legal obligations; to pursue legitimate interests of the Company, such as sharing your personal data with Dover Corporation for internal administrative purposes and use related to the employment opportunity; and when you otherwise voluntarily provide information to us.

This information will be used for internal analytics purposes, in an anonymized fashion, to assist the Company with initiatives around diverse talent attraction, and in the event that the Company is required to respond to inquiries, investigations, or proceedings, by governmental, administrative, judicial or regulatory authorities, including civil litigation.

  • Professional/Employment information: CV, résumé, cover letter, descriptions of your skills and previous work experience (including internal and external work history), language skills, work authorization status, and whether you will need sponsorship for an employment visa.
