Candidate Privacy Policy

Last updated on: May 10, 2023


Hello! We’re Avalanche Studios Group. If the name rings a bell, it may be from high-octane AAA action games where stuff blows up left and right, like Just Cause and Mad Max. Maybe you’ve just heard of the equally explosion-laden gem that is Generation Zero. Or, you’re more of an outdoorsy type, in which case you’re probably more familiar with theHunter: Call of the Wild and Call of the Wild: The Angler. Thanks for exploring our job openings – maybe you will be creating these worlds beyond limits together with us!

Across all three of Avalanche Studios Group’s divisions – Avalanche Studios, Expansive Worlds, and Systemic Reaction – we take player privacy and security very seriously. And no wonder, because it’s the bedrock for all the fun stuff we build on top. It’s also exactly what we’ll discuss below. So if you’re anything like us (and our lawyers,) you’re surely chomping at the bit to get started!

But before we get into the nitty-gritty, a few details for the record. Avalanche Studios Group is based in Stockholm, New York, Malmö, and Liverpool. Our home base is our Stockholm office in Sweden, which is located at Västgötagatan 5 in beautiful Södermalm. The postal code is 118 27 if you ever want to send us a cheeky love letter. For the purposes of this document, Fatalist Development AB is the data controller.

This Privacy Policy outlines how Avalanche Studios Group process, manage, use and protect your data when handling the recruitment and hiring process, including through our recruitment service Lever, which we call the “Service” in this Privacy Policy. “Personal data” is any information that can identify an individual, directly or indirectly. This could be your name, location, or online identifiers (like IP address, web browser version, that sort of thing).

Just one more thing. We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time by posting an updated version to the Service (again, Lever). We might do this to adapt to changing legal, technical, or business requirements. Please review the Privacy Policy from time to time so that you’re aware of any changes. It can help to check the “Last updated” line at the top of the document. If we make an especially important change to the Privacy Policy, we’ll provide you with a notice through the Service or by email. Those are not our favorite emails to receive either, so we’ll try to keep them to a minimum.


If you live within the European Economic Area or the United Kingdom (hello, neighbor!) you have some crucial rights: the right to access, correct, update, or request deletion of your Personal Data. You may also have the right to object to the processing of your Personal Data, ask us to restrict the processing of your Personal Data, request portability of your Personal Data or withdraw consent to the processing of your Personal Data. If you wish to exercise any of the above rights regarding your Personal Data as mentioned above, please contact us at [email protected].

If you have any questions about your privacy, your rights, or how to exercise them, please contact us using the information provided to you in the “How to contact us” section of this Privacy Policy.

If you have concerns regarding the processing of your Personal Data, we hope you can work with us to solve them. However, you can also decide to contact the Swedish Data Protection Authority or your local Data Protection Authority. The Swedish Data Protection Authority can be reached through the following address:

Phone: +46 (0)8 6576100

Mail: Integritetsskyddsmyndigheten, Box 8114, SE-10420 Stockholm, Sweden

Email: [email protected]

We understand that you may be located in a country where you are granted similar rights in relation to your Personal Data.


Below, we describe the Personal Data we collect and how we collect it. We also explain why and how we process your Personal Data.

3.1 When and how we collect Personal Data

We collect personal data about you when you make an application through the Service or otherwise and when you interact with us during the recruitment process, including by email or in interviews taking place digitally or physically.

We also collect data from third parties, such as Twitter, LinkedIn and through other public sources. This is referred to as “Sourcing” and may be performed by our staff.

In some cases, our employees may refer potential applicants to us, and will add Personal Data about such potential applicants. In these cases, we will inform these potential applicants about the processing of their Personal Data and this Privacy Policy.

3.2 The Personal Data we collect

The categories of Personal Data about you that we may collect includes name, email, picture and video, education, information from third party accounts such as Twitter, Github and LinkedIn-profiles, answers to questions asked throughout the recruitment process, titles, education and other information that you or others provide.

Only data that is relevant for the recruitment process is collected and processed. Thus, we ask you not to provide any sensitive or otherwise confidential Personal Data that is not relevant for the recruitment and hiring process.

3.3 How we use your Personal Data and our legal basis

The purpose of the collecting and processing of Personal Data is to manage the recruitment and hiring process. Our legal basis for this processing is: Necessary for our legitimate interests, Consent.

We will ask you for your consent to tell you about future opportunities.

Personal Data that is processed with the purpose of aggregated analysis is always made unidentifiable. Such data cannot be used to identify you and is not considered Personal Data.


We will never share or sell your Personal Data to another company, except as described in this Privacy Policy. Do read on, it’s not sinister. We may share your Personal Data with third parties as described below;

a) with other members of the Avalanche Studios Group, for use consistent with this Privacy Policy;

b) our contractors and sub-contractors, acting as our Processors and Sub-Processors in accordance with our instructions;

c) authorities or legal advisors, in case criminal or improper behavior is suspected; and

d) authorities, legal advisors or other actors, if required by us according to law or authority’s injunction.

In relation to any Personal Data submitted via the Service, Lever Inc. is our Data Processor.


We transfer and share your information to third parties (including service providers operating on our behalf) which are located in countries outside the European Union (“EU”) and/or the European Economic Area (“EEA”) which may not have the same level of data protection laws as those in the country where you are located. When your data is sent to a country outside the EU/EEA that is not subject to an adequacy decision by the EU Commission, the transfers will only occur if we have entered into EU Commission-approved standard contractual clauses with the receiving entity, which is deemed to offer sufficient safeguards with respect to the protection of the privacy and fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals, and we judge that your Personal Data enjoys equivalent protection as if in the EU/EEA.


We care about privacy and security. To that end, we have implemented the appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure that your Personal Data is collected, processed, and stored as securely as possible. For instance, we have implemented various policies including pseudonymization, encryption, access, and retention policies to guard against unauthorized access and unnecessary retention of Personal Data. On top of this, we enforce contractual measures by way of non-disclosure agreements, data processing agreements, and other contractual clauses designed to keep your Personal Data safe in accordance with the GDPR legal framework.


If your application leads to employment with Avalanche (congratulations!), your Personal Data will be retained in accordance with our Employee Privacy Policy. If your application is unsuccessful, but you have consented to be contacted about future opportunities, we will retain your Personal Data for two (2) years. Otherwise, your Personal Data will be retained for as long as necessary to comply with our legal obligations s or to resolve any disputes related to your hiring process.
