This Privacy Statement covers your rights under applicable data protection and other laws. For the purposes of this Privacy Statement, "Personal Data" is any data which relates to an individual that may be identified from that data, or from a combination of a set of data.

1. Who is the data controller?

The data controller responsible for the processing of your Personal Data collected via our recruiting and application processes, including through the Website, is Corel Corporation, 333 Preston Street, Suite 700, Ottawa Ontario, K1S 5N4, Canada. Our main establishment in the EU is Corel GmbH, Siemensstraße 30, 63755 Alzenau, Germany. You can reach our data protection officer for any questions or feedback by emailing

Depending on the job and the Alludo Group company posting the job, the data may be processed by other Alludo Group companies as a joint controller. Please see this link for an overview of local Alludo Group entities. While Corel Corporation is primarily responsible for your data subject requests, you may also contact the hiring company of the Alludo Group with your inquiries.

2. What type of personal data do we process and how do we collect it?

Information you actively provide to us when you apply for a job ("Application Data"):

When you apply for a job you provide us with certain Personal Data such as name, email address, and phone number, as well as your resume/CV and cover letter which may contain additional Personal Data we need to process your application.

We are always looking for the best applicants regardless of racial and ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or ideological beliefs, trade union membership, health or sexuality, or sexual identity (together "Special Categories of Personal Data"). We will never ask you to submit Special Categories of Personal Data, however, if you do so voluntarily, we may also process this data for the purpose of processing your application.

If you are identified as a successful candidate, depending on the position to which you are applying, and subject to legal requirements, we will carry out background checks, either through “public” sources or, where background checks are carried out by our third party provider, Hire Right (provider’s privacy policies can be found here), based on your explicit prior consent. In order for Hire Right to contact you to perform a background check, we will transmit your name and email to them. You have the right to revoke consent with future effect for us to transmit your information to Hire Right at any time.

We use Application Data for the recruitment, evaluation, and selection of applicants for current and future employment opportunities with us. Thus, your Application Data will be processed for the purposes of managing our recruitment related activities, which include setting up and conducting interviews and tests for applicants, including evaluating and assessing the results thereto, and as is otherwise needed in the recruitment and hiring processes.

Our processing is based on the necessity for us to perform a contract with you or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering a contract with you unless otherwise stated above.

Information gathered from third parties ("Third-Party Applicant Data"):

To evaluate your candidacy for employment with us, we might process data that is not collected directly from you but from third parties. Your Personal Data will either be obtained from publicly available sources (e.g. LinkedIn) or provided to us by someone who referred you for potential employment, such as a recruiting agency, or an external recruiter. In those cases, your prior consent will be sought by the agency or other third party or the transfer will be otherwise admissible under applicable privacy laws. Your Personal Data will be processed solely for the purpose of managing our recruitment related activities, which include setting up and conducting interviews and tests for applicants, evaluating, and assessing the results thereto, and as is otherwise needed in the recruitment and hiring processes.

3. When and how can we disclose your personal information?

  1. On the Website we have embedded the online recruiting service of ADP LLC (“ADP”). Accordingly, your Personal Data will be processed on behalf of Corel Corporation by ADP, a cloud services provider located in the USA and engaged by Corel Corporation to help manage the recruitment and hiring process on our behalf.

  2. We may also disclose information we collect to other Alludo Group companies located in different countries. These companies may only process and use this information to assist us for purposes described above and are bound to honor this Privacy Statement.

  3. Where necessary, we may disclose Personal Information to third party vendors (for example, website management vendors, information technology and related infrastructure suppliers, third party recruitment agencies engaged by us, background or employment check service providers, auditing, and other similar services) in order for those third parties to perform business functions on behalf of us.

  4. We do not disclose Personal Data about our applicants to any other non-affiliated third parties unless we have your specific permission to do so, to enable us to fight fraud and abuse on our network, to investigate suspected violations of law, to fight any other suspected breach of our terms of service, or to law enforcement/government when legally obliged to.

  5. We do not sell, rent, or trade Personal Data in the traditional sense (i.e., in exchange for payment). Certain U.S. state privacy laws define the term “sale” broadly and may encompass some of our data processing activities, outlined in the “Applicants Located in California” section in this Privacy Statement.

  6. In the event that our business or a division of our business is reorganized or sold and we transfer all or substantially all of our assets to a new owner, your Personal Data may be transferred to the buyer to enable continuity of service.

4. How long do we retain your data?

Unless you are starting your employment with us after your application, with your consent, we will, where we are allowed to by law, store your Application Data for future consideration unless you request that we delete your information.

We keep all other Personal Data no longer than necessary for the purpose for which we obtained them and for any other permitted purposes, including compliance with legal obligations in the field of employment law.

5. How can you manage or delete information about you?

For applicants that have created an account with us on the Website, you can access, correct, or delete the information you provided by accessing the Website and following the deletion instructions for your CV. You are responsible for keeping the data you provide or post on our network accurate. Please note that by deleting information about you on the Website you may be removing yourself from consideration for jobs at the Alludo Group.

Third Country Data Transfers

If you apply from Europe, your personal data will be transferred to ADP LLC in the USA once you submit it through the Website.

ADP is bound by binding corporate rules, as certified by a competent data protection authority in Europe.
