How ALDI May Share Your Personal Information

ALDI will not knowingly disclose, sell or otherwise distribute to any third party any Personal Information without your knowledge or prior permission, except under the following circumstances:
  • At your direction: ALDI may disclose Personal Information when an applicant directs it to do so.
  • ALDI Subsidiaries and Affiliates: ALDI is part of an international group of affiliates and subsidiaries, and certain services or business functions may be centralized by one or more affiliates for the whole or part of the ALDI group. As such, ALDI may share Personal Information with its affiliates and subsidiaries for business, analytical, and operational purposes.
  • Third-party service providers: ALDI may outsource some or all of the operations of its business to third-party service providers and may use third parties to act as ALDI’s agents to provide services. Services provided by third parties may include background checking, accounting, legal, recruiting, and other professional services. In such cases, it may be necessary for ALDI to disclose Personal Information to those service providers. In some cases, the third parties may collect data directly from applicants on ALDI’s behalf. ALDI restricts how such third parties may access, use and disclose Personal Information.
  • Legal requests and investigations and to comply with law: ALDI may be required to disclose certain Personal Information to comply with government reporting requirements, laws, or regulations. ALDI may disclose Personal Information when, in its opinion, such disclosure is necessary to prevent fraud or to comply with any statute, law, rule or regulation of or any legal process issued by any governmental authority or any order of any court of competent jurisdiction. ALDI may also disclose Personal Information when necessary to exercise and defend legal claims and enforce its rights.
  • Business Transfers: As ALDI continues to develop its business, it might sell or buy companies, subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, applicant Personal Information, including data relating to prospective employment and recruiting, is typically one of the transferred business assets. Any data transferred will, to the extent required by law, remain subject to the promises made in any pre-existing privacy statement unless you consent to the new privacy policy, which may be required as a condition of employment or of continuing the recruitment process, subject to applicable law in your jurisdiction.

Security of Your Personal Information

ALDI has adopted commercially reasonable security procedures and practices designed to protect Personal Information in its possession from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, including physical, technical and administrative controls. However, no data transmission over the Internet, wireless transmission, or electronic storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.  ALDI cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information it collects.  You provide ALDI personal information at your own risk.

Location of Your Personal Information

ALDI is based in the United States. By providing ALDI with any Personal Information, you fully understand and unambiguously consent to the transfer to, and processing, usage, sharing and storage of your information in the United States, for which the privacy laws may not be as comprehensive as those in the country where you reside and/or are a citizen.  As a result, this Personal Information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement in United States jurisdictions according to the laws in those jurisdictions.


Retention of Your Personal Information

The length of time ALDI retains your Personal Information depends on the status of ALDI’s relationship with you and applicable legal requirements. ALDI will retain your Personal Information for as long as your prospective employment (and, if applicable, employment) with us lasts, and for a certain period after your employment or recruitment process with ALDI has ended. To determine that period, ALDI considers applicable legal and regulatory obligations (such as financial reporting obligations and equal opportunity or anti-discrimination reporting obligations) and whether ALDI needs to retain Personal Information to resolve disputes, make and defend legal claims, conduct audits, pursue legitimate business purposes and/or enforce its agreements.

Changes to this Policy

ALDI reserves the right to amend this Policy from time to time within its discretion. If ALDI makes any material changes to the way it uses or discloses Personal Information, it will notify you were required by law. If required by applicable law, ALDI will afford you the opportunity to consent or to opt out of any new use or disclosure.
