How will Application Information be used?
The Application Information you submit is used for the following purposes:
- To assess your skills, qualifications and interests against our career opportunities;
- To verify your information and conduct reference checks;
- To conduct background checks if you are offered a job;
- To communicate with you and inform you of career opportunities;

If you accept employment with Google, the information collected will become part of your employment record and will be used for employment purposes.
Google conducts criminal background checks on all employees once they have completed the application process and are offered a job at Google. Employment at Google is contingent upon the completion of a satisfactory background check. If something on your background check appears to be a reason that Google cannot hire you, we will notify you that we may not be able to offer you a position because of that information. We will also provide you with a copy of your criminal background check, and we will provide you with information on the process for correcting a criminal record.
You can choose what types of Application Information, if any, to submit. Submitting your Application Information is voluntary. However, if you choose not to submit your Application Information, our ability to consider you as a candidate may be limited. We will ask for your consent before we obtain additional information from third party agencies, and will, where required by law, notify you of the information received from those third parties. If you wish to anonymize your submission information from our active databases, then please contact us at this address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, however, that some personal information may be retained as required by law.
Who may access your data?
Google employees, affiliated companies or entities acting on behalf of Google process Application Information for the purposes listed above. Google takes appropriate technical, organizational, and legal steps to protect Application Information. For instance, information on your criminal background check will only be shared with those who have a "need to know." Affiliate companies or entities acting on behalf of Google with whom we share your Application Information will be bound by terms of confidentiality and this Policy.
Does Google keep your data?
Application Information is retained in accordance with local law. We may also retain Application Information to consider you for other jobs for which you may be qualified.
