Careers Privacy Policy
Personally Identifiable Information Privacy Statement At Reed Elsevier, we comply with our obligations relating to the collection and storage of Personally Identifiable Information ("PII"). In particular, we understand the importance of maintaining the confidentiality of your CV and other information collected from you while using the site. As part of this application process, Reed Elsevier will collect information about your skills and interests, which will be matched against our current job requirements. If a match is found in the online preliminary screening, you may be invited to complete an online assessment that measures your experiences and accomplishments as well as your attitudes and preferences on various work-related subjects.

The profile created from this assessment will be stored in the Reed Elsevier candidate database, which is hosted in the United States of America. You will be able to access, correct, update, modify and delete your PII on the Reed Elsevier candidate database. You may withdraw from active candidacy for employment by Reed Elsevier at any time by advising us at careerqueries@reedelsevier.com. Unless deleted by you, Reed Elsevier will retain your PII for up to two years from the date it is last actively used, as required by applicable laws.

While your record remains active we will use the PII you provide to assess potential matches to vacancies in our organisation and to send you announcements relating to employment opportunities available in Reed Elsevier for which we believe you may be suitable.

For these purposes Reed Elsevier may share your candidate record and PII with other Reed Elsevier companies and employees located in our offices around the world.
