LHV’s principles for the processing of personal data in the recruitment of staff

For us to be able to acknowledge you as an applicant and arrive at the successful conclusion of an employment contract, we must process your personal data. These terms and conditions provide information on the processing of your personal data in our recruitment process and how you can exercise your rights.

By applying for a job at AS LHV Pank, AS LHV Finance or AS LHV Varahaldus (LHV’s enterprises), you agree to the terms and conditions of the processing of such personal data.

Who is responsible for the processing of your personal data?

The enterprise of LHV where you applied for a job will be responsible for the processing of your personal data. LHV’s contact details are available on the website of LHV at www.lhv.ee.

From where may we obtain your personal data?

LHV’s enterprises mainly obtain your personal data from yourself, but in certain cases we may collect personal data from external sources. Such sources include public internet sources, public registers (Äriregister, Karistusregister), private registers (Creditinfo Eesti AS) and your former employers. We make queries to public and private registers in relation to the candidates we pick. These queries are carried out as part of the background check, regarding which we also notify the successful candidate in the background check form.

Your former employers will only be contacted when you are a successful applicant. We presume that the references and former employees given in the application documents have agreed to be addressed by LHV to obtain information.

If you apply for a job with us through a job portal, your data that you have presented will be sent to us through the respective job portal.
