  • information you provide during the application process provided in your cover letter and motivations for wanting to work in Lundbeck; and
  • other information you choose to include in your job application or otherwise share with us, even if we have not requested such information. 

Please refrain from providing us with information thatis not relevant to the job for which you are interested or applying. For example, unless required by local legislation, please do not provide us with sensitive information or national identification numbers in your application documents.  

When the personal data is not collected directly from you, we may collect the below categories of personal data from the following sources:

  • references from others, e.g. your previous employers;
  • background checks performed by third-party vendors pursuant to your written consent; and
  • test results and information obtained as a result of any assessment(s) you may take in connection with our pre-offer screening process.

We process your personal data in connection with our recruitment, retention and placement activities so that we may consider your application for employment and comply with applicable local, state, and federal laws.  In addition, we use your personal data to create and/or submit reports as required under any local laws and/or regulations, where applicable; to respond to any of your requests; to assist you with obtaining an immigration visa or work permit where required; to provide you with relocation assistance; to conduct research about your educational and professional background and skills; and to contact you if we think you would be suitable for a role with us.

b. Will we share your personal data? 

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 (such as our vendor responsible for conducting pre-employment drug testing) and any third-party responsible for conducting post-offer, pre-employment background checks.  We contractually obligate all such vendors and data processors to process your personal data on our behalf and solely in accordance with our instructions.
