In this notice, we explain what categories of personal information we collect from applicants for employment and other individuals who apply to work for or to provide services to Paramount, including its subsidiaries (“we,” “us,” “our,” or the “Company”) , in the United States as contractors directly or through our casting and production company partners, and how we use the personal information we collect. For purposes of this Privacy Notice, “Personal Information” means any information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular individual or household. Personal Information does not include information that does not and cannot reveal an individual’s specific identity, such as information that has been de-identified or aggregated, which is not subject to this privacy notice.
If you accept an offer from us, we will process further information from you in your capacity as an employee or contractor. We will provide you with a full workplace privacy notice as part of the onboarding process.
Please also note that we will comply with all applicable local laws in relation to processing your personal information and if anything in this privacy notice conflicts with such local laws, those local laws will take precedence.

  • Payroll and benefits administration.
  • Physical and system security (such as with your CCTV images from attendance at an interview).
