  • to carry out a responsible selection procedure,
  • to address you with other job opportunities after the selection procedure.

A copy of your passport is collected by the Controller only for the purpose of undertaking the BASE TRAINING until the moment of verification of accuracy of the data you provided, all that in order to secure access to the SRA zone if such access is required by circumstances, based on its legitimate interest.
