Who may have access to your PI

Your PI will be processed and stored on the systems used by us in the United States and in other countries. Only authorized personnel worldwide, including human resources, legal, and appropriate managers, will have access to your PI for legitimate business purposes such as management and analysis of job applications. If you have been referred for a job at Constellation by a current Constellation employee, with your consent, we may inform that employee about the progress of your application and let the Constellation employee know the outcome of the process. In some cases, if it is identified that you have attended the same university/school or shared the same previous employer during the same period as a current Constellation employee we may consult with that employee for feedback on you. However, wherever PI may be stored, used, processed, accessed or disclosed, Constellation has taken appropriate steps to ensure that your PI is adequately protected in accordance with Constellation policies and applicable laws and regulations. In particular, where PI is transferred to countries that may not provide a level of protection to PI equivalent to that provided by your home country, Constellation has entered into certain data transfer contracts, including appropriate contractual clauses based on the EU Model Clauses where appropriate.
