Airbus Atlantic places great importance on the protection of your privacy and your data. This Policy explains how Airbus Atlantic collects, processes and protects your personal data when you consult our website or other sites and/or applications related to it, as required by the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation 2016/679, known as the “GDPR”) and the national laws on data protection in force in the countries where Airbus Atlantic operates. The present Policy applies to websites and applications which include a link to it.
However, this website has links to other websites or applications which are not necessarily covered by the present Policy. In this case, we encourage you to read the privacy policies of these websites carefully.

We have implemented a data protection programme, which includes the adoption, on a global scale, of the very strict policies required by the GDPR. This programme includes:

  • the adoption of internal procedures and policies that aim to guarantee compliance with the laws and regulations on personal data protection;
  • the adoption of appropriate organisational and technical procedures allowing data protection principles to be applied.


Which kind of personal data do we collect and how?

Personal data is information that can be used to identify a person, directly or indirectly. This definition covers a wide range of information constituting personal data, such as a name, a postal address, an email address, an identification number, location data or even an electronic identifier.

We can collect the following kinds of personal data:

  • Identification data: last name, first name, email address, phone number
  • Professional data: company, town, country, curriculum vitae (via the candidate space in the Careers section)

  • Location data: location via the Internet connection

We may collect this personal data:

  • directly from you via our contact form and via your browsing activity on our website. It may also be collected via CV submission websites which are external to Airbus Atlantic and have their own privacy policies, which we suggest that you consult; the data concerning the candidates are, however, sent to us directly.
  • indirectly, in particular via media platforms and social networks (for example, when you follow the pages of Airbus Atlantic on social networks, the personal information that you have made public and that can be viewed by everyone from your profile on those social networks).
