We most often collect personal data about you directly from you in the course of your application.  We may also use sources such as your profile on business networking services (e.g., LinkedIn).  We will not check your accounts or profiles on non-business social media like Facebook, Instagram, etc. nor contact any of your work-related acquaintances without your consent.


PayU is an international organization and the amount of data that we collect, and use might differ depending on the hiring entity and local laws that are applicable, especially in terms of background checks (pre-employment screening).

In the final phase of the recruitment process, subject to the role and Applicable Law, PayU may engage a third party to complete pre-employment screening. In such case, you will be specifically informed, and you will be requested to provide your specific permission to complete such pre-employment screening activities.


We process your personal data because it is needed for the employment agreement between you and the organization, based on a role that you have applied for.  In such situations it is necessary for us to collect this information so we can enter into a contract.  In some countries where we operate, it is a requirement for us to collect your consent before obtaining this information.  In such situations we will request your consent.  We will keep your data as long as it is necessary to finalize the employment contract or to close the recruitment process.

In limited circumstances, we may process your personal data where it is necessary for us to defend, prosecute or make a claim in a court of law. We may also process personal data for something called “legitimate interests” under Applicable Law, in particular in the context of protection of security of our IT assets, our premises and our members of staff. In practice, this means that we must put in place appropriate privacy safeguards to ensure that we are respecting your interests, as well as your fundamental rights.


Your personal data will be used for the following recruitment-related purposes, based on a legal ground in accordance with Applicable Law:

  • to manage recruitment of employees, including legal eligibility for work, vetting, hires, promotion and succession planning.
  • to perform background checks when required.
  • to keep personal data for future recruitments if you give your explicit and voluntary consent.
  • to store emails and documents generated in the context of the recruitment activities.
  • to manage the PayU Group recruitment activities, in particular in the context of ensuring diversity, benchmarking remuneration, ensuring proper succession planning and HR strategy.
  • to comply with our legal obligations in the context of recruitment, in particular regarding monitoring and ensuring equal employment opportunities, in respect of gender, ethnicity and racial origin.
  • for statistical analysis and research purposes in the context of recruitment, including predictive modelling and people planning.


Your personal data will be shared within the PayU Group (subject to your consent where necessary as per the Applicable Law) for the purposes described in Section 5 above to the extent necessary to carry out these purposes, and as permitted by law.

We are a global Group with a global footprint. Note that your personal data may be processed either locally in the jurisdiction where you work or reside, or in any other jurisdiction where we or our approved third-party service providers operate, worldwide, depending on the needs of the business over the course of the recruitment process, to the extent necessary and as permitted by law. Should your personal data move outside the European Economic Area or another jurisdiction that restricts the international transfer of personal data, we ensure that the appropriate transfer mechanisms under Applicable Law are in place.

Your personal data will only be shared outside the PayU Group with third parties, under the following circumstances: (1) where a third-party service provider retained by us is under contract to assist in administering our Human Resources activities, subject to appropriate confidentiality obligations (2) with private or government authorities only when we have determined that we are required to do so under Applicable Law; (3) to investigate suspected fraud or illegality, to anticipate or defend legal claims; or (4) where you have given us your prior permission to do so.
