With your consent (or, where required to process Sensitive Personal Data, with your explicit consent), which will be requested and given via the Sources or otherwise.
Withdrawal of Consent
In certain countries, you may have the right under certain circumstances to withdraw your consent to our Processing of your Personal Data where we process your Personal Data based on your consent or your explicit consent. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer Process your Personal Data for the purpose(s) to which you originally consented unless there are compelling legitimate grounds that override your interests, rights and freedoms (for example, to comply with a legal obligation), or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims. If we processed Personal Data for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time, in which case we will no longer process your Personal Data for such purposes. The withdrawal of your consent does not affect the lawfulness of such processing that occurred before its withdrawal. Should you withdraw consent to future processing of your Personal Data, we may not be able to contact or interact with you as originally planned when you first provided your consent.
Syneos Health operates on a global basis, and your Personal Data may be transferred, accessed and stored globally as necessary for the uses stated in this Privacy Notice, or in another notice or agreement provided to you. We have taken measures to protect the confidentiality, integrity, availability, and security of Personal Data when it is transferred. By using the applicant portal (and if required by law), you consent to the transfer of information to countries outside of your country of residence.
For applicants based in the European Union, Switzerland and the United Kingdom:
Certain Syneos Health entities (Syneos Health Clinical, Inc., Syneos Health, LLC, InVentiv Clinical, LLC, InVentiv Health Clinical Research Services, LLC, and InVentiv Health Clinical, LLC) comply with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks (“Privacy Shield”) as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of Personal Data transferred from the European Union, United Kingdom, and/or Switzerland, as applicable, to the United States in reliance on Privacy Shield. These entities have certified to the Department of Commerce that they adhere to the Privacy Shield Principles with respect to such information. To learn more, please see our Privacy Shield Statement.
To the extent that your Personal Data is shared with service providers or other third parties processing Personal Data on our behalf which are located outside your country of residence, it is our practice to enter into appropriate contracts that require such third parties to comply with applicable data protection laws.
Retention and Deletion
When you create an account, Syneos Health will retain your Personal Data in our applicant tracking system. While your information is active, you may still be considered for other positions at Syneos Health. If you do not wish to be considered for future positions, you may deactivate your account at any time by using the tools provided in the applicant portal. This action will result in a “soft delete,” which will remove your Personal Data from the applicant tracking system. Even if you delete your account, however, Personal Data associated with jobs to which you have applied will be retained for compliance and record keeping purposes, and will be subsequently permanently deleted in accordance with the Company’s retention practices. If you are hired by Syneos Health, your information will be retained as part of the information we process about you in connection with your employment.
Protection of Information
The security of your Personal Data is important to Syneos Health. We use commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards that are designed to protect your Personal Data from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. However, regardless of our efforts and the device you use to access the applicant portal or other online resources, it is possible that third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications over an unsecured transmission.

Some of the third-party cookies we use relate to Tracking Technologies we have licensed from third parties, including Adobe Experience Cloud and Google Analytics.
