As guaranteeing the reliability, professionalism and security of its organisation is important to ABN AMRO, the final phase of the application process consists of pre-employment screening. Personal data obtained from public sources may also be used for this purpose.ABN AMRO's pre-employment screening consists of the following as a minimum:
The screening process consists of internal and external screening. ABN AMRO performs the internal screening, and in that context it will request, access and verify information relating to you. In the case of external screening for a role at ABN AMRO that is based in the Netherlands, ABN AMRO uses a specialist screening agency, Validata (for more information go to www.validatagroup.com). We do not transfer your personal data to that agency: you must enter and upload your personal data on that party's website yourself. If you apply for a role in a country other than the Netherlands, a local screening agency performs the screening or, alternatively, the organisation in the relevant country follows its own screening procedure.
ABN AMRO may also use your personal data for a purpose other than the purpose for which you initially provided it. This is, however, subject to the condition that the new purpose must be in line with the purpose for which you initially provided your personal data to us. To determine whether this is the case, ABN AMRO looks at the following aspects as a minimum:
ABN AMRO may share your personal data with companies that help us with recruiting and selection of candidates, like recruitment agencies.
Also ABN AMRO may share your personal data with suppliers of assessments, for instance so that a personality test can be conducted.
If ABN AMRO decides to hire you, your data will be shared with Raet so that it can draw up your employment agreement. Raet takes care of HR-related matters for the bank.
ABN AMRO takes due care when selecting the companies with which it works. ABN AMRO reaches clear contractual agreements with these companies on how they are to handle your personal data. ABN AMRO continues to be responsible for your personal data when it engages another company to carry out work on its behalf.
ABN AMRO goes to great lengths to ensure the highest possible level of protection for your personal data. In connection with this, ABN AMRO invests heavily in its people, systems and procedures. The way of working is constantly geared to the sensitivity of the relevant data. Employees are trained how to keep data safe and secure.

ABN AMRO and its group companies may decide to share personal data with each other. even when the group companies are located outside Europe.

The sharing of personal data with group companies outside Europe is governed by the bank's global internal policy, the Binding Corporate Rules (BCRs). This policy has been approved by the Dutch Data Protection Authority (Dutch DPA).
ABN AMRO may also make use of IT suppliers that are based outside Europe or that also offer services from countries outside Europe. In that case, ABN AMRO will ensure that personal data is transferred in accordance with the data protection legislation.

The data protection legislation does not stipulate specific storage periods for personal data. Other legislation may specify minimum storage periods, however. If it does, the bank must observe these periods.
In principle, ABN AMRO keeps the personal data of rejected candidates for a period of one year starting from the date on which their application is rejected.
