Thank you for your interest in working at HARMAN International ("HARMAN").

With leading brands including AKG®, Harman Kardon®, Infinity®, JBL®, Lexicon® and Mark Levinson®, Harman is admired by audiophiles across multiple generations and supports leading professional entertainers and the venues where they perform. Recruiting the right talent is crucial to our goals. Because we gather certain types of information about applicants during the recruitment process, we want to help you understand our practices surrounding the collection, use, disclosure, transfer and other processing of your personal information.
This Privacy Statement addresses the following topics:
This Privacy Statement applies to HARMAN International Industries ("Harman"; www.harman.com) and HARMAN Connected Services ("HCS"; www.services.harman.com). In this Privacy Statement, "the Company" refers to the HARMAN entity to which you are submitting your application for employment. Where Harman and HCS process your personal information differently, this Privacy Statement will describe the different processing by each company. Each HARMAN entity is responsible for handling applicants' personal information in accordance with this Privacy Statement.
By agreeing to the terms of this Privacy Statement, you consent to the collection, retention, use, disclosure, transfer across borders and other processing of your personal information as described below. Before you agree to the terms of this Privacy Statement by clicking "I agree to the processing of my personal information, including the retention and cross-border transfer of my personal information, as explained in this Privacy Statement", please read this Privacy Statement carefully. Once you agree, your consent will continue to apply to our collection, use, disclosure, cross-border transfer and other processing of your personal information unless you withdraw your consent by contacting us at email@example.com or delete your profile. The Company will not process your personal data for purposes other than as described in this Privacy Statement unless (a) you consent, or (b) such other purpose is compatible with the purposes described in this Privacy Statement to which you have given your consent.
This Privacy Statement applies to information collected for recruitment purposes through this Careers Site and from other sources. The other sources might include information that you provide other than through the online application page as well as information provided, for example, by recruiters, referrers, on-boarding professionals, staffing agencies, and other sources. This Privacy Statement does not apply to any other site or page that the Company owns or operates. Our other sites have their own privacy policies.
The Company's Careers Site provides information about careers and vacancies. The Company's Careers Site collects personal information thatyou as an applicant voluntarily submit or personal information that you voluntarily submit for recruitment processing purposes. A summary of the personal information collected by the Company follows.

This Privacy Statement refers to this information as your "Profile Information."

Harman will retain your Profile Information for two years after the date on which you set up your profile.
Please note that, if you submit an expression of interest in employment in the United States, the Company must comply with U.S. Government regulations to maintain your information. To do so, the Company will maintain your application and information concerning your expression of interest for a period of three years, unless a longer period is required by law. By submitting your resume and other expression of interest in a position in the U.S., you agree to allow the Company to maintain your information. If you are hired for a position in the United States, the Company will retain your information for the duration of the employment relationship and for the number of years thereafter specified by the Company's data retention policy.
With regard to non-U.S. applicants, the personal information submitted in connection with your application for employment on the Company's Careers Site will be retained in accordance with local law. Personal information submitted for applicants who are not offered employment with the Company will be retained for the duration necessary to conduct the recruitment process and/or evaluation and for one year unless a longer or shorter period is required by law. If you are hired for a position outside the United States, we will retain your information for the duration of the employment relationship and for as long thereafter as required or permitted by applicable, local law.
The Company does not make any decisions concerning applications of applicants within the EU by automated means. We have the capability to engage in automated decision making with respect to non-EU applicants, but will only do so for the purpose of evaluating whether to enter into an employment agreement with you.
The Company will not sell, lease, or license your personal information to any third party. There are limited circumstances when the Company may share the information that you submit on-line with third parties, most notably:
The Company will make such disclosures only as permitted by applicable data protection laws.
If you are hired and your applicant information becomes part of your personnel file, the Company will provide you with a notice, where required by law, that describes how your information will be shared and otherwise processed.
Authorized employees of the Company at locations worldwide may have access to your personal information as part of the recruitment process. These employees may use and disclose your personal information only for recruitment purposes, and must handle that information in accordance with this Privacy Statement and applicable data protection laws. The data protection laws in the countries in which these authorized employees are located may be less stringent than the laws of your home country. You may contact us if you wish to find out more information regarding the countries in which the Company is located and from which the Company's authorized employees may access your personal information.
The Company has implemented reasonable technical and organizational measures for the purpose of protecting applicants' personal information against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access and against any other unlawful forms of processing. However, these measures are not absolute, and the Company cannot guarantee the security of your personal information. In addition, the transmission of data over the Internet by its nature entails the use of systems under the control of third parties. As a result the Company cannot ensure the security of such systems.
You may have the right, to the extent permitted by applicable law, to access, update, correct or delete the personal information the Company has collected about you. You can exercise these rights, consistent with applicable law, as follows:
You can exercise these rights by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. HCS will respond to such requests in accordance with applicable data protection law.
You can review or update your information at any time by accessing your profile on Harman's Careers Site. You may also delete your profile from Harman's Careers Site by clicking "Delete Profile" on the "My Candidate Profile" and by visiting https://jobs.harman.com/talentcommunity/managePII/ and entering the email address associated with the profile that you wish to be deleted.
You can update your profile information as described above. To withdraw your application from any particular job to which you applied, you must select "withdraw application" directly on the Harman Career Site "Job Application" page. You also can submit a request to exercise your rights to email@example.com.
If you are an EU resident, you also have the right to restrict, or to object to the processing of, your personal data as well as the right to data portability. Subject to certain limitations, the right to data portability allows you to obtain from the Company, or to ask the Company to send to a third party, a copy of your personal information in electronic form that you provided to the Company with your consent.
Applicable law may provide you with the right to object to the processing of your personal information based solely on the Company's legitimate interests. If you do object in these circumstances, the Company will stop processing your personal information unless there is an overriding, compelling reason to continue the processing or the processing is necessary to establish, pursue or defend legal claims.
EU residents can exercise their rights by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org for further information and assistance. The Company will respond to such requests in accordance with applicable data protection law. You may also opt out of future email communications from the Company by contacting email@example.com.
You can contact the Company at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to withdraw your consent to the Company's use, disclosure, transfer or other processing of your personal information as described in this Privacy Statement. Any withdrawal shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal, and the Company will continue to retain the information that you provided before you withdrew your consent for as long as allowed or required by applicable law. Please understand that if you withdraw your consent and the Company does not have an alternative, lawful basis for processing your personal data, the Company may not be able to consider your application for employment.
If you are an applicant in the United States with a disability or a disabled veteran, you may request a reasonable accommodation if you are unable or limited in your ability to use or access a HARMAN Careers Site as a result of your disability. You can request reasonable accommodations by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
This option is available only to those needing an accommodation related to a disability. Information related to existing profiles or applications will not be provided via the above e-mail address. In order to express interest, it is helpful if you provide the information related to the specific position you are interested in (for example, requisition number, job title, location, etc.). Applicant profiles can also be submitted.
Nothing contained in this Privacy Statement creates, or is intended to create, a contract or agreement between any HARMAN entity and visitors visiting the Careers Site or with any persons who submit personal information through this site. Nothing on the Careers Site shall constitute an offer of employment.
The Company seeks to recruit and maintain individuals having the necessary skills, knowledge, and experience essential for the function the applicant is applying for and therefore enforces a thorough and fair recruitment process. When you submit an expression of interest in employment with the Company for a position in the United States, you will be prompted to voluntarily disclose certain information that the United States government requests the Company to collect, including race, ethnicity, age, veteran status and gender information. Such information will not be used to make interviewing or employment decisions, and it will be maintained separately from your resume and expression of interest in employment. The voluntary disclosure form is the only proper means for you to disclose race, ethnicity, and gender information. If you choose not to submit such voluntary disclosure form, this will not influence the recruitment process.
Your resume and your expression of interest for a United States position must not include information that explicitly identifies your age, race, color, ethnicity, gender, disability status, or other status protected by laws in the United States. Do not submit a photograph of yourself.
US Federal law requires all employers to verify the identity and employment eligibility of all persons hired to work in the United States. The Company participates in E-Verify. Click here (http://www.uscis.gov/files/nativedocuments/PrtcpPstr-SWA-ENG-NoPhotoTool-v8.pdf) for more information.
Please direct any questions, request for removal of personal information, and comments or complaints you may have about this Privacy Statement to firstname.lastname@example.org. Residents of the EU have the right to lodge a complaint with their local data protection authority concerning the Company's processing of their personal data.
The Company may change this Privacy Statement from time to time in its sole discretion. If the Company makes a material change to this Privacy Statement, we will inform you by posting a notice on this site. Those changes will go into effect on the effective date posted in the revised notice. The new privacy statement will apply to all current and past users of the online application page and to all information collected before the date of the change. The new privacy statement will replace any prior privacy statements that are inconsistent. Please check periodically for changes to this Privacy Statement, and especially before you provide any personal information to the Company. If the Company materially changes how we use, disclose or otherwise process your personal information, we will contact you before doing so and obtain your consent, where legally required to do so, before using, disclosing or otherwise processing your personal information other than as described in this Privacy Statement.
