This Site and its Services have been developed for use by Amgen and individuals seeking employment with Amgen and/or its subsidiaries. Amgen will not knowingly collect, maintain, disclose or otherwise process Personally Identifiable Information of any individual who is deemed a minor in the jurisdiction where he or she resides. If you are a minor, please do not provide us with any such information about yourself.
I. Information We Collect
We have access to the following categories of information about you and your use of Our Services. Only some of this information identifies you directly, but some information that does not identify you directly could be used to make inferences about you and, if combined with other information, might be capable of identifying you.
Information That You Provide
Personally Identifiable Information. “Personally Identifiable Information” is information that could be used to identify or contact you and includes data such as your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and biographical information. There may be many other kinds of Personally Identifiable Information, the foregoing list is provided by example only.
Site Registration. You may browse jobs on this Site without registering. To apply for a job, make your resume available for future jobs, and/or set up a Search Agent, you must register for a new User Account. The new User Account set up requires an e-mail address, password, and security question. You must then set up a Career Profile where you are required to provide the following Personally Identifiable Information: first name, last name, country, home phone number, e-mail address and source that referred you to Amgen. You may also submit additional information, such as your employment and educational history, to provide a more complete Career Profile. You have the opportunity at any time to update your Personally Identifiable Information contained in your Career Profile. Within the Career Profile is a button titled Delete Profile. Clicking on this button will delete your User Account – however it will not terminate Amgen’s access to your Career Profile. Even if you click on the Delete button, your Career Profile will remain available to Amgen. Further, use of the Delete button will not remove or retract any job applications you previously submitted or remove your Personally Identifiable Information from the system. If you wish to re-enter the system after using this functionality you will be required to set up a new User Account.
Any Personally Identifiable Information provided by you contained in the Career Profile is kept in our system as allowed by applicable law, unless you send Us an e-mail asking Us to delete it - even then, we will keep your information in our system as required by applicable law and any legal holds. For more information, see the section below entitled Access, Correct, Update, or Delete* Personally Identifiable Information.
You may be given the opportunity to provide information on your gender and race/ethnicity where permitted by applicable law. We may gather this information from job candidates for reporting and record-keeping requirements. You should understand that, if provided, We will only use this information in accordance with applicable law and will not use it in making any employment decisions. Providing this information is strictly voluntary, and you will not be subject to any adverse action or treatment if you choose not to provide it. Such information will be kept in a confidential file separate from your application for employment.
We encourage you to exercise good security practices by memorizing your e-mail address and password or keeping them in a safe place (separate from any Personally Identifiable Information), and logging out of your User Account and closing your Web browser before leaving your computer. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your User Name and password. You may not share your password with anyone else, temporarily or permanently, and you will be responsible for all uses of your User Account, whether or not authorized by you. You agree to immediately notify Us if you become aware of any unauthorized use of your User Account.
Amgen Recruiters. Even if you do not complete a Search Agent, and even if you only apply for a single position through the Site, Amgen recruiters (including both Amgen employees and Amgen contractors that act as recruiters for Amgen) may contact you about other jobs for which you have not applied but that may be of interest to you based on information you provide about yourself through this Site.
Correspondence with Amgen. You may report problems with the Site by e-mailing us at email@example.com. If you send us e-mail, We will have your e-mail address as well as all other information you include in your e-mail. Any feedback you submit becomes Our property, and We can use such feedback for business purposes or to contact you for further information.

Cookies. We collect information about your use of Our Site through cookies and similar technology. A "cookie" is a unique numeric code that We transfer to your computer so that We can keep track of your interests and preferences and recognize you as a return visitor to Our Site. Cookie technology allows Us to collect "clickstream" data, which is not Personally Identifiable Information but which reflects your activities on the Site, including the pages you view. Our cookies do not collect or keep your name or other Personally Identifiable Information. We use the information collected by cookies for general statistical purposes, such as to track how many candidates run job searches, how many click to apply for a job or jobs, and how many actually submit an application for a position.
Web Beacons. Web beacons are tiny graphic image files embedded in a Web page or e-mail that send information from your browser back to the beacon’s originating server. The information collected by Web beacons allows a Web site to statistically monitor how many people are using the site. A third party service provider used by Amgen places Web beacons on this Site to track a user’s activity on this Site or across sites, or to let Us know if a user has opened an e-mail that We sent. The third party service provider uses web beacons to track which job board(s) (e.g., Monster.com), if any, you visited before arriving at this Site; whether you clicked through to this Site from a job board where an Amgen job was advertised, and/or whether you applied for a position and, if so, for which position(s) you applied. The information collected by the Web beacons is not personally identifiable.
