Candidate Data Privacy Protection


The objective of these Candidate Data Protection Standards (“Standards”) is to provide adequate and consistent safeguards for the handling of candidate data by ARAMARK entities. These Standards are designed with the intention of defining ARAMARK’s protection of Candidate Data. ARAMARK is committed to fair information practices that are compliance with applicable, local law.

The identifiable information about yourself that you or someone else provides (on your or ARAMARK’s behalf) to an ARAMARK entity will be used for recruitment purposes and the Candidate Data will be protected in accordance with ARAMARK’s Standards outlined below and applicable law.

By submitting your Candidate Data, you confirm and agree that:

  • you have reviewed ARAMARK’s Standards and Privacy Policy;
  • ARAMARK and/or its third party service providers may process the Candidate Data according to the recruitment purposes set out in the Standards;
  • the Candidate Data may be transferred to other ARAMARK entities consistent with ARAMARK’s Standards; and
  • Your consent is required in order to complete the submittal process. If you do not agree to abide by these terms and conditions do not use the site.

ARAMARK may periodically collect further information with your consent or in accordance with applicable laws. For example, ARAMARK may require additional information to perform background checks or obtain approvals which may be a condition to employment. In addition, ARAMARK may collect your feedback and opinions (e.g., surveys) for business purposes, such as improving processes.


ARAMARK and ARAMARK entities process Candidate Data for legitimate human resources purposes. Such processing will be conducted within such purpose limitations and in accordance with applicable law.


ARAMARK entities are committed to taking appropriate technical, physical, and organizational measures to protect Candidate Data against unauthorized access, unlawful processing, accidental loss or damage, and unauthorized destruction.

Equipment and Information Security 

To safeguard against unauthorized access to Candidate Data by third parties outside ARAMARK, all electronic Candidate Data held by ARAMARK entities are maintained on systems that are protected by secure network architectures that contain firewalls and intrusion detection devices. The servers are stored in facilities with comprehensive security and fire detection and response systems.

Access Security 

ARAMARK entities limit access to internal systems that hold Candidate Data to a select group of authorized users who are given access to such systems through the use of a unique identifier and password. Access to Candidate Data is limited to and provided to individuals for the purpose of performing their job duties (e.g., a human resources manager may need access to a Candidate’s contact information for the purposes of setting up an interview).


ARAMARK entities will not disclose Candidate Data outside ARAMARK to offer any products or services to a Candidate for personal or familial consumption (“direct marketing”) without his or her prior consent. The restrictions in this section apply only to contact data obtained in the context of applying for a position with ARAMARK and not, for example, to data obtained in the context of a customer relationship.
