1. How does INDAQUA recruitment via the website work?

A list of job opportunities within the INDAQUA Group can be found on the INDAQUA website ( This gives applicants an idea of the employment needs provided by the different INDAQUA Group companies and helps to manage applications and the recruitment process.

Candidates may also choose to submit a speculative application.

In both cases, the candidate gives express consent for his/her personal data to be collected and processed for recruitment and selection purposes.

INDAQUA guarantees the security and protection of personal data, in strict compliance with Regulation (EU) 2016/679, of 27 April, 2016.

2. Who is responsible for processing personal data?

The application information or curriculum vitae submitted via the INDAQUA website (either by applying for a specific vacancy or through a speculative application) may be used by the various companies partially, totally, directly, or indirectly owned by the company INDAQUA – Indústria e Gestão de Águas, S.A.

INDAQUA – Indústria e Gestão de Águas, S.A. is the company responsible for the processing of personal data. It assumes its obligations as regards procedural design, purposes, means of processing, procedures, subcontracting the processing of personal data, risk mitigation measures, recording of processing activities and checking tools.

No decisions will be made by automated means. Other data necessary for the evaluation of the candidate may be processed during the application procedure.

4. Purpose

The data collected will only be processed for the purpose of recruiting and selecting candidates.

In the event of being selected, INDAQUA will request additional personal data, which is necessary for the issuing of the contract and mandatory transmission of data to official entities, namely tax identification number and Social Security beneficiary number.

The communication of personal data is not mandatory by law or otherwise, but it is a necessary requirement for applying for employment.

You are not therefore obliged to provide us with your details, but if you do not, the only consequence will be that your job application will be invalid.

6. What is the retention period for personal data?

If you have applied for a specific vacancy: the data will be stored for the duration of this selection process and (if you are not selected) until 31 December of the third year following the submission of the application, to be used in future job offers, identical to the one you applied for.

If you have not applied for a specific vacancy: until 31 December of the third year following the submission of the application.

The candidate may, at any time, request the cancellation of their registration on the INDAQUA website, in which case your personal data will be deleted immediately. If not, the registration will be cancelled, and the data deleted after 3 years.
