Upon creating an account within the careers website, either upon applying for a specific position or creating a general profile for future positions that will meet your requirements; the following privacy statement will apply:

To apply for a position with a company in the Kingfisher Group of companies, Kingfisher plc will collect personal information about you in order to deal with your application.

The "My Account" section of this website enables you to record your personal information so that you can search for vacancies with a Kingfisher Group company. This allows you to: save any job search that you make for reuse in the future; create and modify a personal employment profile; request an email notification to be sent to you whenever a new position matching your profile is posted; make multiple selections in relation to your preferences; and make selections about how we correspond with you in relation to applications.

Your personal information will be provided to the Kingfisher Group companies that you select in the "My Account" section of the careers website. For example, if you are applying for a position with B&Q, your personal information will be provided to B&Q plc. If you are applying for a position with Screwfix, your personal information will be provided to Screwfix Direct Limited. If you select all Kingfisher companies, your personal information will be provided to all applicable companies in the Kingfisher Group from time to time, both current and future.

We and the relevant Kingfisher Group companies will hold all the personal information you have given for the purpose of assessing your suitability for the role, and for the purposes of personnel administration, obtaining references, and statistical analysis including equal opportunities and diversity monitoring.

If you become an employee of a Kingfisher Group company, certain information you have provided on this online application will be transferred to your employment record.

If you wish to deactivate your account you should click "Deactivate" which automatically withdraws all of your active job submissions.

If you do not de-activate your "Account" and there has been no activity on your "Account" for 2 years, it will be automatically de-activated.

We use third party organisations including Taleo Corporation and reference checking service providers to provide services on behalf of the Kingfisher Group. Your personal information may be processed outside the European Economic Area in countries that do not have the same standards of protection for personal information as the UK. If your personal information is processed outside the European Economic Area we will take steps to ensure that your personal information will be adequately protected as required by UK data protection law.
