What is the legal basis for our processing of your personal data?

The legal bases in the GDPR for our collection and processing of your personal data are (may be supplemented by local law):


  • GDPR art. 6(1)(f) (“the balancing of interest test”). It is Lundbeck’s assessment that the processing of your personal data is necessary for the determination of whether Lundbeck can offer you the position as specifically applied for.

Will we share your personal data with data processors?

Lundbeck uses IT systems and service providers who will have access to your personal data. Your personal data will also be disclosed and shared with our test providers, for instance in relation to personality tests in the case we decide to invite you for a second interview. All data processors will process your personal data on our behalf and solely in accordance with our instructions. Unless you are interested in or applying for a job in H. Lundbeck A/S in Denmark, H. Lundbeck A/S will also act as a data processor on behalf of affiliates.


Will we share your personal data with third parties?

For applications for positions in one of Lundbeck’s affiliates, we will share your personal data with the given affiliate. For certain positions, we may also share your personal data with
recruiting companies for the purpose of obtaining assistance in relation to a
specific position.



If you are a resident of the EU/EEA, will we transfer your personal data to recipients in countries outside the EU/EEA?

In cases where you are interested in or applying for a job in Lundbeck’s affiliates, your data will be transferred to the relevant affiliate. Some affiliates are located outside the EU/EEA and have not been determined by the European Commission to have an adequate level of data protection (see the full list of ‘secure countries’ on the EU Commissions website). If the country where the affiliate is located has not been determined to have an adequate level of protection, the transfer will be based on the Lundbeck Intra Group Agreements (or the Binding Corporate Rules, once approved and implemented). More information regarding this can be obtained by contacting Lundbeck or Lundbeck’s Data Protection Officer using the contact information set out below.

In other situations, we have ensured that EU Standard Contractual Clauses are in place with the recipient.


How long will we store your personal data?

We will store your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes described above.

You will receive a notification fourteen (14) days prior to the expiration.
