CDW is committed to protecting the privacy and security of your personal data. We encourage you to read this privacy notice in its entirety. If you have any questions, you may reach out to the CDW privacy team at [email protected].
As a recruit or job applicant to CDW, we process personal information about you during and after your application. This privacy notice (“Notice”) explains how we may collect, process, store and sometimes transfer personal data to third parties to support your application or recruitment process with CDW and our business operations.
CDW has prepared this Notice for its current and former job applicants and recruits who reside in the United Kingdom or the European Economic Area, and it applies to anyone whose personal information CDW may collect in the context of applying to or being recruited to work at CDW (such as references). This Notice explains how and why we collect, use, store, disclose and otherwise process personal information. We may update this Notice from time to time, for example if we start to use new systems or processes that use your personal data. This Notice is not a contract, and does not create any legal rights or obligations, and is not intended to replace other notices or disclosures we may provide to you in connection with your relationship with our organization. If this Notice conflicts with any of those other notices or disclosures, they will take precedence.

We also process information based on our legitimate interests to hire qualified and appropriate candidates to develop our business. Where we need to comply with a legal obligation, we may also process your information. Depending on where you live, certain laws may require us to obtain your consent for the processing of certain personal information.
Under these circumstances, the provision of your information is voluntary, failure to provide it will not affect your working relationship with CDW, and you can withdraw your consent for further processing at any time by contacting the privacy team at [email protected].
