Purpose of the Privacy Statement.
Information We Collect and How We Use It.
A. Personal Information You Provide.
Some areas of the Site may require you to submit information in order for us to respond to your request or for you to have access to specific areas, contents, functionalities or participate in a particular activity. Some of the information that you submit to us may be personal information. If you decide to apply for one of the jobs listed on the Site, you will be required to submit personal information so that you may access the job application functionalities of the Site and so that we may review and respond to your application.
You may always choose not to provide the requested information, but you then may not be able to participate in the particular activity that requires such information or have access to the particular content, area or functionality. If you do not provide us with certain personal information, you will not be able to complete and submit job applications via the Site. We will not use personal information that you provide to us in a manner inconsistent with the purposes for which we collected it, as set out below. Here are the ways you may be requested to provide personal information, the types of personal information you may submit, and how we may use the information.
- Recruitment Purposes
If you use the job search and application functions of our Site, we may ask you to provide personal information for our recruitment purposes, in order to contact you about opportunities with Bristol Myers Squibb and to assess your suitability for a role with us. Such information may include your name, contact details, employment and education history, references and other information about you that could be deemed sensitive personal information (e.g., race, ethnicity, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, health-related data or data relating to your sexual orientation), to the extent necessary or allowed by applicable law.
- Other Uses of Information
We may use the personal information you provide through the Site for our internal purposes. These purposes include administration of Site, data analytics and compliance with our legal obligations, policies and procedures.
B. Personal Information from Public or Third-party Information Sources.
From time to time we may supplement your personally identifiable information with information we obtain from third party sources in order to verify your information and/or to provide you with more tailored information, communications or products/and or services.
Verification covers the process of checking that details supplied by individuals are accurate and complete. Please be aware that our recruitment process includes a verification process for such things as your contact information, identity, professional status, employment references, academic qualifications, right to work, financial searches, as well as criminal disclosure checks. This information will be verified by our vendors that specialise in background checks.
D. Web Beacons.
A Web Beacon is a clear GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) image or pixel tag that companies place on their Web sites to allow an audience measurement company to help them analyse the general usage patterns of visitors to their Web sites. Bristol Myers Squibb uses Web beacons on some of its Web sites. Subject to the transfer of control described below, Bristol-Myers Squibb will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information.
E. Web Server Logging and IP Addresses.
An IP address is a unique identifier that certain electronic devices use to identify and communicate with each other on the internet. When you visit our Sites, we receive information regarding the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet.
With or without cookies, our Site keeps track of usage data, such as the source address that a page request is coming from (i.e., your IP address, domain name, date and time of the page request, the referring Web site (if any), and other parameters in the URL (e.g., search criteria)). We use web server data and other technologies to better understand Web site usage on the whole and to determine which areas of our Site users prefer (e.g., based on the number of visits to those areas). This information is stored and used by Bristol Myers Squibb for statistical reporting.
Our Legal Grounds to Use and Process Your Personal Information.
Our legal grounds to use and process personal information about you include that the processing is necessary for:
- The operation of the Site and the provision of the Site’s features, content, tools, services or activities;
- Bristol Myers Squibb’s legitimate interests to establish and manage our employment relationship with you and for related functions including for human resource and administrative purposes, such as recruitment and record maintenance;
- The performance of employment and services contracts, including human resource administration and payroll; and
- The purposes of carrying out the obligations and exercising rights under applicable employment laws and regulations.
Information We Share.
A. Service Providers.
We may share information with service providers for them to perform data processing services on our behalf and/or for internet-based delivery purposes, in compliance with the applicable laws (for example, to process online registration forms for events or to administer our blogs). These service providers are not authorised by us to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements.
B. Recruitment Partners.
Personal information collected in our recruitment process will be made available to our outsourced recruitment partners in the European Union, hosted in the United States by Workday or iCIMS and processed by our data processors Workday and iCIMS outside of the European Union. Additionally only Bristol-Myers Squibb personnel responsible for managing the particular job to which you have applied will have access to your personal information. This may require us to share your personal information with appropriate Bristol-Myers Squibb affiliates in or out of the European Economic Area (EEA), for the purposes of making a recruitment decision, recruitment policy, equal opportunities monitoring and selection. We will disclose your data only where necessary for legitimate business purposes (e.g., for human resource and administrative purposes relating to our recruitment and employment processes) and such disclosures will be carried out in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
C. Law Enforcement.
In rare situations, we may be required by court order or other legal or regulatory process, or as otherwise required by law, to divulge personally identifiable information to law enforcement authorities, the courts, or regulatory authorities. We may also be required to make such disclosure when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity. Bristol-Myers Squibb will cooperate in responding to such requests, in accordance with the regulatory or legal process, and will take appropriate measures to ensure that the requester understands the sensitive nature of any health-related personally identifiable information they receive.

How We Protect Personal Information.
We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards for the Site designed to protect against loss, misuse or unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration or destruction of the personal information we collect through our Site, in accordance with the applicable laws.
Storage of Your Personal Information.
We will only hold your personal information for as long as it is necessary to fulfill the above-stated purposes or to comply with any legal obligation. When your personal information is no longer necessary for these purposes, the personal information will be securely deleted. This may mean that your personal information is stored by Bristol-Myers Squibb for a number of years, depending on the purpose and need for that data to be processed.
You are entitled to request access to, rectification or erasure of personal information relating to you or restriction of processing or to object to certain types of processing of such information or to data portability and other rights, such as a right to erasure of your information, in certain circumstances in accordance with applicable law. Bristol-Myers Squibb may refuse to provide such information in limited circumstances under applicable local law.
If, having considered the personal information we hold about you, you find that it is inaccurate or you otherwise have any concerns, you may request that your information be amended, erased or restricted in accordance with applicable requirements.

In addition, Bristol-Myers Squibb is committed to assigning a data protection officer who will be responsible for overseeing our compliance with the new EU data protection regime under the General Data Protection Regulation.

If you would like more information on GDPR and BMS’ EU Office of the Data Protection Officer (DPO), which provides oversight for data protection and compliance to the GDPR, please email EUDPO@bms.com.
