Last update: Februrary 10th 2022

What personal data do we process?

A candidate in civil service recruitment examinations is a natural person who participates in Petrobras processes for selecting new employees, for internships, or for apprenticeship programs.

The personal data that is processed reflects the information the holders reported during registration and/or collected along the process, and may include: Name, date of birth, gender, home address, nationality, e-mail, landline and mobile phone numbers, data related to documentation that allows for identification, such as the identification number and taxpayer’s ID, as well as data on academic background. Sensitive personal data, such as race, color, ethnicity, and information about people with disabilities may be collected to comply with regulatory aspects, such as the quota legislation in force in the country.

If the candidate signs a labor contract with Petrobras, he/she must also observe the Privacy Policy for the Internal Audience on the subject.

What do we use your personal data for?

Petrobras only processes personal data for legitimate and specific purposes, following the best practices for the protection of personal data and privacy. Depending on the candidate’s stage in the process, there will be a need to collect additional personal data, such as the application of medical and psychological tests to meet legal issues.

Data related to candidates in civil service recruitment examinations are processed for these purposes:

  • Managing the candidate’s records in the selection process;
  • Managing communication with the candidate;
  • Assessing the candidate’s eligibility and aptitude;
  • Ensuring compliance with the company’s regulatory and normative requirements.

What are the legal assumptions used for the processing of personal data?

Petrobras processes the personal data of candidates in civil service recruitment examinations based on these assumptions provided for by law:

  • To meet a legal obligation with the Federal Government;
  • To execute an employment contract or pre-contractual procedures;
  • For Petrobras’ legitimate interest in compliance with the company's internal regulations.
  • To exercise ordinary rights in lawsuit, administrative, or arbitration proceedings.

With whom may we share personal data?

Personal data are only shared in specific situations for legitimate purposes.

Petrobras may share personal data with other companies in the Petrobras Group and/or third party service providers. The Company may also share your personal data with government control bodies that are subject to the same domestic legislation regarding the privacy of the users’ personal data.

Other institutions, including other Petrobras Group companies, have their own personal data privacy policies and operate independently, and they must be specifically consulted if questions come up.

Do we transfer data internationally?

Petrobras does not make international transfers of data related to candidates for civil service recruitment examinations who are not hired in the company’s selection processes.

If the candidate signs an employment contract with the company, the information on international data transfers featured in the Privacy Policy for the Internal Audience will be valid.

How long will we keep your personal data?

The candidates’ data are stored to meet existing legal deadlines and to enable the statistical analysis of the company’s selection processes, such as attractiveness, candidate approval levels, etc.

How can I exercise my rights?

Subject to trade and industrial secrets, the holder of personal data or his or her legal representative may request such data at any time, based on the General Personal Data Protection Law.

Additionally, Petrobras allows full access to the holders’ personal data, allowing updates, when applicable, upon proof. The holder or his or her legal representative is responsible for updating the personal data.

Petrobras reserves the right to deny requests that (I) do not adequately fill in the fields on the forms; (II) do not reasonably allow it, at its discretion, to confirm the applicant’s identification; (III) generic requests; (IV) similar or duplicate requests within a period of 30 consecutive days.

If Petrobras deems that the request made by the holder of the Personal Data may be more adequately answered by another company in the Petrobras Group, he or she will be advised to contact the relevant company.
