OFS Privacy Policy

Keeping your data safe


Oilfield Solutions Limited and its connected companies in the OFS Group (“OFS”) is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected when using the OFS Careers Portal. We take appropriate security measures against unlawful or unauthorised processing of personal data, and against the accidental loss of, or damage to, personal data. We have put in place procedures and technologies to maintain the security of all personal data from the point of collection to the point of destruction

This Privacy Policy sets out how OFS uses and processes any personal information you provide to OFS when using the careers portal and website. You are recommended to read this Privacy Policy carefully to understand OFS’s views and practices regarding your personal information and how we will treat it. Any personal data is collected and processed in accordance with Irish and EU data protection laws.

(Download full document below)


By registering your interest on the portal, you voluntarily choose to provide OFS with your personal information and you explicitly consent to the collection, processing and use of this information as described in this Privacy Policy.

You hereby acknowledge that OFS as a global organisation operates across multiple jurisdictions sharing human resources information so that we can operate a cohesive approach to recruitment. Therefore, your personal data may be stored and processed and shared internally by OFS worldwide within the scope of the recruitment purposes and for contacting you about job opportunities at OFS, unless you request otherwise. Personal information may be processed manually or automatically by authorised employees of OFS and other authorised third parties for recruitment related services.


By registering you are expressly confirming your interest in employment opportunities at OFS. You therefore freely provide your personal information to be used for recruiting purposes, in particular for filling and matching your profile with any and all open positions at OFS, including beyond those for which you specifically applied unless indicated otherwise. You are responsible for ensuring that the personal information submitted by you is correct and true. The full registration process is a default setting of the application process, but you also have the ability to apply for a specific job opportunity which will limit the scope of use of your information provided. OFS will use the information provided to complete our obligations arising from any engagement which we may enter into with you such as assessment tests or background checks if relevant.

By releasing your profile to the website, you agree to OFS contacting you for HR marketing purposes. If you no longer wish to be contacted by OFS you can update your user details as outlined in the “Controlling Your Personal Information” section below. Unless you specifically elect to amend or delete it, your personal information will not be deleted by OFS for period of up to two years.

OFS does not sell your personal information to third parties. If there is a job opportunity at OFS which matches your profile, OFS may forward your profile details to a third-party Customer for further review and to potentially contact you for interviews.

You have the option of withdrawing your application at any time. Your data will be deleted in accordance with the applicable laws once the application process ends or if you withdraw your application.


We collect two types of information:

* “Personal data” means any information relating to and identified or identifiable natural person.

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for and during the period of time needed to complete our legitimate business operations, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.


OFS are committed to ensuring that your personal information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Our Security Information Standards are applied globally to ensure compliance with applicable data protection and privacy laws. Any third parties appointed to process your personal information on our behalf shall be obliged to maintain the same confidentiality and security measures of OFS.


We will not disclose your personal information to third parties other than where required in connection with our recruitment processes, unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so. Where personal information is processed by our service providers we will take steps to ensure that the processing complies with applicable data protection laws. Where you have consented, we may use your personal information, or permit selected third parties to use your personal information, to provide you with information about job opportunities or in connection with HR marketing purposes which may be of interest to you and we or they may contact you about these by email.

We may provide your non-personal data to third parties, where such information is combined with similar information of other users of our website such as the number of unique users who visit our website or the demographic breakdown. These third parties may include web developers, researchers or providers of advertising services.

We use the following categories of data processors in the course of our business: Cloud Service Provider, Cloud-based Support Services, Cloud-based Email Notification Services. These categories may be updated from time to time and for an updated list of categories of data processors you should check this Privacy Policy on the OFS website.


We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission. For further details, see European Commission: Adequacy of the protection of personal data in non-EU countries.

Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe. For further details, see European Commission: Model contracts for the transfer of personal data to third countries.

Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the Europe and the US. For further details, see European Commission: EU-US Privacy Shield.
