The data processing operations concern two main areas: the implementation of three EU programmes and Chafea personnel selection and recruitment activities.
Personal data processing operations in the area of implementation of the EU programmes
The Consumers, Health and Food Executive Agency processes personal data for the performance of its tasks e. g. for the implementation of the Health Programme (2008-2013), the Consumer Programme (2007-2013) and the Better Training for Safer Food Initiative. The personal data of applicants and tenderers are processed solely for the purpose of the calls for proposals and direct grant agreements, calls for tenders or the other activities of the Executive Agency (such as organising meetings) according to its mandate.
For more information, please read the privacy statement for grants (calls for proposals).

Personal data processing operations in the area of personnel selection and recruitment
The purpose of processing of the data submitted by candidates for vacancies is to manage job applications in view of a possible pre-selection and recruitment at the Executive Agency. The personal data of candidates are processed solely for the purpose of personnel selection and recruitment.
For more information, please read the privacy statement for recruitment.
Unless specified differently in the call documents, in the vacancy notice and/or in the privacy statement,
- in line with Article 5(a) of Regulation 45/2001, the personal data processing operations at Chafea are necessary for the performance of tasks carried out in the public interest on the basis of the EU Treaties or other instruments adopted on the basis thereof and for the legitimate exercise of official authority vested in Chafea;
