We never sell your information
We do not, and will not, sell any of your personal data to any third party – including your name, address or email address. You can rest assured that you can put your trust in us.

We work closely with our WBA Global Brands recruitment partners and may share your information internally for recruitment purposes only. We may also share your personal information with external companies, such us our third party retail partners that host our counters, or external companies that provide services on our behalf. Where we do this, we ensure internal and external partners give your information the same level of care and security as we do.

We use a number of agencies to help us recruit. The agencies will share candidate details with us where they believe the candidates are suitable for roles and have agreement from the candidate to do so. We will encourage agencies to always share our Candidate Privacy Policy before sharing candidate details with us.

Some assessments that candidates may be required to take mean that their data will be passed to our assessment providers. We pseudonymise data where we can, but where this isn’t possible we limit the information that we share to only the minimum that is required.

We may share your personal information with third parties where required or permitted by law, if we believe we need to do so to protect our rights, or to comply with legal proceedings. In such cases we will always do so legally and with due regard to your privacy.

If ownership of all or part of our business changes or we undergo a reorganisation (including a merger or transfer between Walgreens Boots Alliance companies), we will transfer your personal information to the new owner or successor company, so we can continue to provide our services.
