Application for Employment (the “Notice”)

SEGA Europe Limited and our group companies (together, “SEGA Group Companies” or “SEGA Group Company”) are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. We will treat your personal data confidentially and will comply with European data protection legislation in respect of our processing activities.

By clicking the "I Accept" button you agree to the processing by the SEGA Group Companies and Jobvite Inc. of your personal data and you acknowledge that you have read and understood the following:

Information we collect from you

The types of personal data, that we may collect from you include, but are not limited to, first and last name, contact information, and career history data. We may also refer to information set out on your LinkedIn profile when considering your application.

Pre-employment screening checks

We do not perform criminal background checks or other such screening as part of the application process, although, following an offer of employment, your role may be subject to pre-employment screening, if permitted by applicable law.  The type of screening (if any) will depend on the role for which you've applied.

How we use your information

As part of your application for employment at one of the SEGA Group Companies, the data you provide in your application, including that from any interviews, pre-selection processes with which you engage and references that you provide (with the referees’ consent), will be held on our computers or manually in our files. The data will be used by the SEGA Group Companies to process your application and ultimately, where your application is successful, so that SEGA Europe Limited can make an offer of employment.  

We will send you the results of your application at the e-mail address that you have provided to the SEGA Group Company.  If your application is successful, the data which you provide will be used to administer your personnel record at the relevant SEGA Group Company and will be subject to our staff privacy policy. We take security very seriously and we use appropriate technical and organisational security measures to help safeguard your personal data.

Sharing your information

The SEGA Group Companies use a third-party solution (Jobvite Inc.) to administer our recruitment processes online. You can find information about how Jobvite Inc. processes your personal data here.

The SEGA Group Companies do not disclose your personal data to unauthorised third parties. However, as a global corporation consisting of several offices in various countries, we will use resources located throughout the world. To the extent necessary as part of the recruitment process, your personal data may be transferred and/or disclosed to any SEGA Group Company as well as to third parties acting on our behalf. This may also include transfers to servers and databases outside the country where you provided us with your personal data. Such transfers may include for example transfers to countries outside the European Economic Area such as the United States of America. Where we transfer personal data, we will seek to take account of any applicable statutory obligations relevant to data transfers and, in the absence of a European Commission (EC) adequacy decision, we will seek to rely on appropriate safeguards, including Privacy Shield certification or EC approved standard contractual clauses.

Retention of recruitment records

If your application is successful, we will move your recruitment information to your employment files. We will only move data that is relevant to your on-going employment. Once you are employed at a SEGA Group Company, how we handle your personal data is governed by the staff privacy policy and, if applicable, your employment contract.

If your application is unsuccessful, application forms and related documentation will be kept on file for twenty-four (24) months from your application date, so that the SEGA Group Companies may contact you in respect of future vacancies that may be of interest to you.  The SEGA Group Companies will also retain your personal data as needed to comply with any legal or document retention obligations.

If you do not wish for the SEGA Group Companies and/or Jobvite to continue to process your personal data in the ways described in this Notice, you can request in writing that you do not want us to do so by contacting us at is

After your personal data is no longer needed, we will dispose of your records in a secure manner and in accordance with our records management policies.

Your rights

You have a right to request a copy of the personal data that we hold about you at any time and can have that information corrected if it is inaccurate. If you wish to exercise your right to view, update and/or correct data which you have submitted to the SEGA Group Companies as part of the recruitment process, please contact: Data Protection Officer, SEGA Europe Limited, 27 Great West Road, Brentford, Middlesex, TW8 9BW or at
