Collection and Use of Your Information
AmerisourceBergen will primarily rely on you to provide us with relevant information regarding the position(s) for which you are applying.

To the extent appropriate in accordance with applicable law, we may seek additional data and/or verify your information by contacting your references and other reputable third parties (including publicly available sources). By clicking the "Submit" button on any of the job application pages and submitting your information, you agree that we may use third parties to verify your information or to collect additional data to assist AmerisourceBergen in the evaluation of your job application.
Any or all of these types of information collected from you or from others referenced above may include “Personal Data”. This means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, where an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more other factors specific to that natural person, whether provided by you, your references or the third parties referenced above.
Information We Collect Directly From You
We may collect information directly from you when you visit the Web Site or otherwise provide information directly to us. We do not require the disclosure of sensitive information (e.g., data relating to gender, race or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious beliefs, trade union or works council membership, or sexual orientation) from initial candidates. But to the extent you supply any information of sensitive nature with your application, you agree that we may use such information in accordance with applicable law, including for statistical and reporting purposes.
If we do not employ you, your Personal Data will remain in our database for a period of time in order to use the information that we obtain in relation to your application so as to be able to consider your application later if a suitable position becomes available and, if appropriate, to refer back to this application if you apply again, subject to the rights discussed below, to the extent required by applicable law.
We may use Personal Data that we collect directly from you or from the third parties referenced above to verify your information or to:
Information We Collect About You via Cookies

communicate with you regarding the status of your application;
ensure that content from the Web Site is presented in the most effective way for you and your computer; or
