Last updated February 15, 2024
This Applicant Privacy Notice (“Privacy Notice”) describes the collection, use, retention, and sharing of your personal information when you apply for a position at CVRx, Inc. (“CVRx”, “we”, “us”, “our”). This Privacy Notice does not apply to third party sites or services outside of CVRx’s career’s page and application process.


When you apply for a position at CVRx, we collect personal information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, to you when you:

  • Complete an application. When you apply for a position at CVRx, we collect from you your personal identifiers (name, email address, physical address, and telephone number), your professional or employment information (resume/CV, cover letter, non-compete or employment contract, and employment history), your educational information (college or university, level of degree, and your discipline) and any other information you choose to include with your application. We use this information to review your background and skills, to determine your qualifications for the role you are applying to, to communicate with you to coordinate the application process, e.g., set up interviews, and to confirm information related to your employment and education. For certain positions, we require you to provide us “Yes” or “No” responses involving your protected classifications (citizenship). We use this information to comply with legal requirements, such as determining if a visa is required, and to determine if we are legally allowed to employ you.
  • Conduct interviews. When you participate in an on-site interview with CVRx we collect from you your personal identifiers (name) and we collect automatically your visual identifiers (video recordings via CCTV systems). We use this information to ensure the security and safety of CVRx personnel and property and to verify your identity.
  • Information from references. When you provide references with your application, we will obtain from your references your professional or employment information (work skills) and will draw inferences from your references, such as their thoughts on how your skills might enable you to succeed in the position for which you have applied. We use this information to assess your suitability for the position for which you have applied.
  • Monitor work-related licenses and credentials. If you apply for a position that requires specific licenses and credentials, we collect from you, as well as from educational institutions, personal and professional references including your personal identifiers (name) and your professional information (licenses, credentials, employment history, educational history, resume/CV). We use this information to verify and manage your work-related licenses and credentials.
  • Verify your education. If you apply for a position that requires a verification of education, we collect from you, as well as from background check providers and education institutions, your non-public education information (verification of education level completed, verification of dates enrolled in educational institutions, certifications obtained, 2 report cards, transcripts). We use this information to verify your education for employment purposes.
  • Conduct a background check. When a background check is requested as part of the candidate review process, we will collect, from you, your personal identifiers (name, date of birth, and physical address) and sensitive identifiers (Social Security number). Social Security number is considered sensitive under the CPRA. We share this information with a background check provider in order to conduct a background check to verify your identity, credentials, and criminal history, and to facilitate the background check. For positions where a pre-employment drug test is required, we share your personal identifiers (name, date of birth, email address, telephone number, physical address) with a third-party drug screening provider to facilitate and arrange the screening. We will subsequently collect your health information (drug test results) from this provider. We use this information to confirm you adhere to CVRx’s drug policy and qualify to work with the health care providers and institutions with whom you are assigned to work, when applicable.
