Allegro MicroSystems, Inc.,a Delaware Corporation, is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.  This “Notice” explains what Personal Data we collect, why we collect this Personal Data and how we use and protect it in relation to our recruitment activities and the rights you have in connection with that information.  This Notice refers to all Personal Data we collect and that we could use to personally identify you.  Please read this Notice carefully.  We are happy to answer any question you may have on this.   

In this Notice, “Personal Data” means any information on its own or combined with other information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person (“Data Subject”).  

This Notice applies to Allegro Microsystems Inc. as well as its wholly-owned direct and indirect subsidiaries and affiliated companies, including Voxtel, LLC, (“Allegro”), for which Allegro is a “Data Controller”.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any Allegro affiliated companies have published their own privacy notice, such notice will take precedence over this Notice with respect to that entity.  If you have any questions about this Notice, please contact Allegro at its registered address:  955 Perimeter Road, Manchester, NH 03103, United States of America or alternatively you may email us at  When this Notice refers to “we”, “us” or “our”, it refers to all Allegro entities which collectively or individually may act as a Controller of your Personal Data, in other words those entities who may be deciding why and how your Personal Data is being processed.

This Notice applies to all Personal Data we collect about you when you interact with us as a job candidate.

The term “Candidate” is used in this Notice to refer to anyone who applies for a job role, or who otherwise seeks to work with or for us, whether on a permanent or non-permanent basis.

The Personal Data We Collect

When you apply for a job role with us or otherwise seek to work with us, we may collect certain information automatically, from you personally, or from third party sources (for example from a recruitment agency acting on your behalf or from references supplied by former employers or agencies and where applicable information from criminal records checks permitted by law).

Personal Data we may collect automatically

You can visit the Careers section of our website (“Website”) and search for job roles without providing any Personal Data.  However, we do collect certain Personal Data automatically from your device when you visit our Website.  For further information, please see our Privacy Notice.

Personal Data we may collect from you

We need to use your personal information to decide whether to enter into an employment relationship with you. In connection with your application for work with us, we may collect, store, and use the following categories of information from you:

  • Name, title and other personal details such as gender, date and place of birth and nationality;
  • Personal contact details such as addresses, telephone numbers and personal email addresses;
  • Your curriculum vitae (CV)/résumé, cover letter or any other supplementary document included as part of the application process where requested or not (which may include details of any memberships or interests constituting Sensitive Personal Data (as that term is defined herein));
  • Past employment history (including previous employers, job titles or positions) and references in order to evaluate you for potential employment;
  • Other academic, professional, training and salary-related information, such as academic degrees and professional qualifications;
  • National identifiers such as nationality, national IDs/passport, social security/insurance numbers, immigration information and visa status;
  • Information relating to previous applications you have made to us and/or any previous employment history with us;
  • Photographs if included on CV’s or otherwise on supplementary documents submitted as part of the recruitment process;
  • The results of any personality profiling assessment that we may carry out as part of the recruitment process;
  • Your bank account details (if these are necessary to reimburse reasonable travel expenses); and
  • Any other information you voluntarily provide through the recruitment process, including through interviews and other forms of assessment.

However, in some circumstances, we may need to collect or request on a voluntary disclosure basis some Sensitive Personal Data for legitimate recruiting-related purposes. For example, information about your racial/ethnic origin, gender and disabilities may be collected for the purposes of equal opportunities monitoring, to comply with anti-discrimination laws and for government reporting obligations.  Any reports prepared for this purpose would not contain Personal Data, i.e. the data would be aggregated and anonymized.  Furthermore, information about your physical or mental condition may be collected in order to consider what special adjustments/accommodations we need to make for the recruitment process and/or subsequent job role.

You may provide, on a voluntary basis, other Sensitive Personal Data during the recruiting process.

Personal Data we may collect from other sources

If your application to work for us is successful, we will hold additional information about you as your employer in accordance with our Employee Privacy Notice, which will be provided at the relevant time.
