Data Privacy Notice
In accordance with the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act, the City of Becker is required to inform you of your rights as they relate to the private information collected from you. Private data is information that is available to you. Private data is information that is available to you, but not the public. The personal information we collect about you is private. Minnesota Statutes 130.04 and 13.43 are two sections that govern what affects you as an applicant for employment with the City of Becker. All data collected is considered private except for the following:
(1) Your veteran’s status.
(2) Relevant test scores.
(3) Your rank on our eligibility list.
(4) Your job history.
(5) Your education and training.
(6) Your work availability.
Your name is considered private information; however, if you are selected to be interviewed as a finalist, your name becomes public information.
The data supplied by you may be used for such other purposes as may be determined to be necessary in the administration of personnel policies, rules, and regulations of the City of Becker. Furnishing social security numbers, date of birth (unless a minimum age is required), sex, age group, and disability data is voluntary, but refusal to supply other requested information will mean that your application for employment may not be considered.
Private data available is available only to you, appropriate City employees, and others as provided by state and federal law who have a bona fide need for the data. Public data is available to anyone requesting it and consists of all data furnished in the application for employment that is not designated in this notice as private data.
Except for race, sex, age, and disability rate, the information you give us about yourself is needed to identify you and to assist the Becker Assistant City Administrator’s Office in determining your suitability for the position which you are applying. Race, sex, age, and disability data are used in summary form by the City of Becker to monitor protected class employment and to meet federal, state, and local reporting requirements.
I declare that I have read and understand the information given above regarding the Minnesota Data Privacy Practices Act.
