As identified in the table above, under EU and UK data protection laws, there are various grounds on which we can rely when processing your personal information. Similar grounds may apply outside the EU and UK or some grounds may be inapplicable in some jurisdictions, e.g., Mexico. In some contexts more than one ground applies.

The personal information we collect from Applicants, including any sensitive personal information voluntarily provided by Applicants, and, subject to the terms of the applicable law, will be retained until we determine it is no longer necessary to satisfy the purposes for which it was collected and our legal obligations. In determining how long to retain information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of the personal information, the purposes for which we process the personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes in other ways, the applicable legal requirements, and our legitimate interests.

For example, we will keep certain information about former applicants (e.g. your address and phone number) for as long as necessary for our legitimate interests in keeping this information as part of our organizational history and to confirm the facts of your recruitment with us and to comply with law. The purposes we process information (as well as the other factors listed above) may dictate different retention periods for the same types of information. For example, applicant names in email headers may be kept indefinitely depending on the nature of the email.

We may also retain certain information to deal with and resolve requests and complaints (for example, if there is an ongoing dispute surrounding Brex's hiring decisions this information would be retained until the legal claim had been concluded); or to protect individuals' rights and property (for example, we will retain information about a data subject access request for five years after the request is dealt with in case there is a subsequent complaint and the information is needed to demonstrate how the request was handled).


California residents have certain rights regarding their personal information. Subject to certain exceptions, if you are a California resident, you may request:

  • correction of the personal information that we have or will hold about you that is inaccurate;
  • deletion or removal of your personal information.

You also have the right not to be discriminated against (as provided for in California law) for exercising your rights.

Exceptions to Your Rights: There are certain exceptions to these above rights. For instance, we may retain your personal information if it is reasonably necessary for us or our service providers to provide a service that you have requested or to comply with law or to detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity or prosecute those responsible for that activity.

Exercising Your Rights: To exercise one of the rights above, you may contact us as provided below.

California law places certain obligations on businesses that “sell” personal information to third parties or “share” personal information with third parties for “cross-context behavioral advertising” as those terms are defined under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). We do not “sell” or “share” the personal information covered by this Policy and have not done so in the twelve months prior to the effective date of this Policy.

This means that you have the right to receive your information in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format and to share it with a third party. [E.g. Applicants can download copies of their completed application form from the Applicant Portal].
  • Object to the processing of your information. You also have the right to object to the processing of your information in certain circumstances. This right applies when we are pursuing our legitimate interests or those of a third party. In submitting an objection request to the People Team, please provide all relevant information, including the processing activity you are objecting to, why you want to object and how the processing activity affects you, and any additional information that you think will help us review your request. We will stop the particular processing if we don't have compelling legitimate grounds to continue that processing or don’t need it for legal claims.

If we have collected and processed your personal data with your consent, then you can withdraw your consent at any time by using the contact details provided under the "How to Contact Us About This Policy" heading below.

For more information, please contact your local supervisory authority[ies].

Automated decision-making
In some instances, our use of your personal data will result in automated decisions being taken (including profiling) that legally affect you or similarly significantly affect you.

Automated decisions mean that a decision concerning you is made automatically based on a computer determination (using software algorithms), without any human review. For example we may use automated decisions for:

  • automated screening of CVs. This involves processing automated scanning of CV documents to screen out applications lacking mandatory requirements (e.g. no legal qualifications for a legal counsel role). To safeguard your rights and interest, all CV screening suggestions must be reviewed by a human supervisor before being approved.

When we make an automated decision about you, you have the right to contest the decision, to express your point of view, and to require a human review of the decision. You can exercise this right by contacting us using the contact details provided under the "How to Contact Us About This Policy" heading below.

International Data Transfers
In some cases, where your personal data is transferred to another Brex company or third parties, it is processed in countries other than the country in which you are resident. These countries may have data protection laws that are different to the laws of your country (and, in some cases, may not be as protective).

Specifically, we are headquartered in the United States and may use service providers that operate in the United States and other countries. Therefore, we may transfer your personal information to recipients outside of the UK and EU. Some of these recipients are located in countries which have been formally recognized as providing an adequate level of protection for personal information by the Secretary of State in the UK and the European Commission in the EU, in which case, we rely on the relevant "adequacy decisions".

Where the transfer is not subject to an adequacy decision or regulations, we take appropriate safeguards to ensure your personal information remains protected in accordance with this Privacy Policy and applicable laws by entering into appropriate data transfer mechanism permitted under Article 46 of the UK GDPR, such as the European Commission's Standard Contractual Clauses and the UK International Data Transfer Addendum.

Our Standard Contractual Clauses entered into by our group companies and with our third party service providers and partners.
