Information We Collect


We may collect the following information from you in connection with your application:

Any information you submit through the Careers Sites must be true, complete and not misleading. Submitting inaccurate, incomplete, or misleading information may lead to a rejection of your application during the application process or disciplinary action including immediate termination of employment. In addition, it is your responsibility to ensure that information you submit does not violate any third party’s rights.

If you provide us with personal information of a reference or any other individual as part of your application, it is your responsibility to obtain consent from that individual prior to providing the information to us.


Fox may obtain information about you from other sources, such as from your references in connection with your application, as permitted by applicable law, or other information such as background checks, as permitted by applicable law.


Please do not submit any information that could be considered “sensitive personal data”. Sensitive personal data includes personal data regarding your racial or ethnic origin; your political opinions, religious beliefs or other beliefs of a similar nature; whether you are a member of a trade union; data regarding your physical or mental health or condition; your sexual orientation; and data regarding the commission or alleged commission of any criminal offense.

Only for certain limited positions and/or in selected jurisdictions, you may be asked to provide certain sensitive personal data, such as identification of veteran status or information relating to convictions of a criminal offense, to the extent provided and authorized by the applicable law.

Use of Information

The information that you submit on the Careers Sites will be used to consider your application for the specific position you applied for and in particular to: (a) process your application; (b) to assess your capabilities and qualifications for a job; and (c) to respond to your inquiries and communicate with you about your application.

If we hire you, personal information we collect in connection with your application also may be used to pre-populate some fields in our human resources system. Any such information may become part of your employee file and will be subject to Fox’s privacy statement for employees, if required under applicable data protection laws. You will be allowed to amend this information at any time.

We will use your information as permitted by local law, to protect our rights including to: (a) enforce this Statement; (b) to protect our rights, privacy, safety, or property, and/or that of our affiliates, you or others; and (c) to allow us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain.

Where required, we will use such information to:

Providing personal information to us through the Careers Sites is necessary for us to fulfill all of the purposes listed above. If you fail to provide sufficient information, Fox may be unable to consider your employment application.

Please note, that your personal information also will be used for Fox’s global personnel recruiting function, should your profile be suitable for positions other than the one for which you applied. In such case, the information about you will be added to Fox’s international candidate database and may be used to consider you for opportunities at Fox and its affiliates other than the one(s) for which you applied. Such additional processing will be carried out with your consent, if such consent is required by applicable law, or on the basis of Fox’s legitimate interest in maintaining applicants’ records to facilitate recruiting within its global operations; such legitimate interest is adequately balanced with your interest in being considered for other positions that may suit and interest you. If you no longer wish to be considered for other positions within Fox, contact us by email or mail using the details in the “Contact Us” section below. In particular, if you are a resident of the European Economic Area, you can withdraw your consent or object at any time to this activity as described in the “Your Rights under GDPR” section of this Statement.

Finally, your personal data may be used by Fox to complete a corporate transaction, such as a proposed or actual reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of Fox businesses, assets, or stock (including in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings). Such activity also is performed on the basis of the legitimate interest of Fox and its possible counterparties to perform such economic activities (corporate transactions). That interest is adequately balanced with your interest, since the data processing is performed within the limits strictly necessary to perform such economic activities. If you are a resident of the European Economic Area, this data processing activity is not mandatory and you can object at any time, as described in the section of this Statement titled “Your Rights under GDPR.
