About the use of Artificial Intelligence

How does Artificial Intelligence work?

During the process of posting a new vacancy, the recruiter establishes various essential and desirable requirements, such as education, experience, field of work, whether the position is in-person or remote, among others.

Analyzing such requirements, the profile of the Client Company, the resume, and other information provided by the candidate (in their profile and during registration for that specific process), Gupy's artificial intelligence presents to the recruiter the candidates who have applied for that position, organizing them based on the affinity that such criteria have among themselves, in order to give more opportunities to the most compatible candidates with the position.

This organization of candidates is not static and changes throughout the Selection Process, according to new applications or withdrawals and, especially, with the interaction of the recruiter regarding the resumes, which gives Artificial Intelligence more information about the company's preferences.

It is worth noting that Artificial Intelligence does not eliminate any resumes analyzed, nor does it make approval or rejection decisions regarding them. Every decision made during the Selection Process is made directly by the recruiter and/or the manager responsible for the position.

In addition to this support to the recruiter in the resume screening stage, AI also evaluates candidates registered in a company's talent pool and, for each available position, makes recommendations of the most suitable candidates. Such recommendations serve only as a suggestion to the recruiter, and the decision to include or not include a candidate in a specific selection process is the responsibility of the professional conducting the recruitment.

What data does Artificial Intelligence analyze and for what purposes? 

Gupy AI only analyzes the resume information of candidates and analyzes the job information to determine, based on such data, how compatible a candidate is with a particular position - presenting this result to the recruiter in the form of resume sorting.

Sensitive data and/or information about gender, sexual orientation, age, race, and ethnicity are not read (in fact, we exclude textual gender markers to avoid any bias in this aspect). For example, if the candidate indicates that their current position is "lawyer," the AI will only read "lawyer," making it impossible for it to identify gender.

Attention! Gupy AI does not read identification data or diversity data, nor does it use them for learning or improvement.

How does Gupy prevent the occurrence of biases in Artificial Intelligence? 

A bias is a biased way of thinking, i.e., a disproportionate weight against or in favor of a particular group of people, culture, or action, which can often be considered unfair due to unequal treatment.

To prevent biases in Artificial Intelligence, Gupy adopts several measures, such as:

a) Adoption of guiding principles that guide the development of Gupy AI;

b) Our data science team is composed of diverse individuals to ensure the representation of different social segments in the development of AI;

c) Does not analyze gender markers of the words you enter. For example, Artificial Intelligence will read "engineer," regardless of whether the resume contains the word "engineer" or "engineer." This means that, for Artificial Intelligence, your gender identification does not matter; this information will not be considered;

d) Constant human monitoring of Artificial Intelligence activities through audits and bias analyses, conducted by a diverse and inclusive team of data scientists, to ensure the safety and reliability of its results.

What does Artificial Intelligence not do?

Gupy AI acts in a specific and targeted manner in its activities and will never:

i) Eliminate, approve, or move a candidate in the selection process. No decision is made by AI in screening candidates. Decisions related to this stage of the selection process are made by the recruiter, who is supported by the information provided by Artificial Intelligence but is free at all times to ignore it and follow their own criteria. It is the recruiter who decides who will proceed to the next stages, who will be interviewed, and who will be hired or not;

ii) Behavioral profile analysis;

iii) Correction of tests performed by you - the scores assigned to various tests are considered by Artificial Intelligence, but the relevance of such scores in sorting applications depends on the company's previous behavior when analyzing the results of previous tests. Gupy AI does not analyze behavioral profile tests, tests of behavioral factor indicators, and the Integrity indicator;

iv) Sending automatic messages about the result of the selection process. The feedback on the processes is provided by the Client Company.

As the Data Controller, Client Companies may share your information with their partners and other Operators contracted by them, depending on the characteristics and strategies of their selection processes and people management. In this case, for more information about the processing of your data, you should consult their respective privacy notices.

International transfer of personal data 

Gupy may transfer your personal data outside of Brazil, specifically to the United States or countries of the European Union, if the Client Company or the Operators have servers in those countries.

We observe all guidelines established by current legislation and adopt best practices in security and privacy to ensure the integrity, confidentiality, availability, and privacy of your personal data throughout the process. Our relationships with such companies are governed by contracts that include obligations for the protection of data and information security appropriate to the nature of the personal data processing we perform and compatible with the requirements of Brazilian legislation.

Information security measures 

We are deeply concerned with the privacy and protection of your personal data. Therefore, we adopt technical, administrative, and organizational security measures and best practices to protect our systems and databases, using the best technologies available on the market – including the use of antivirus software, data encryption, anonymization of personal data, access control, firewalls, implementation of information security policy, software solution architecture with intrusion prevention, and HTTPS usage, institutional measures (Privacy and Data Protection Governance Program), training and awareness of employees, protection against unauthorized access, among others.

However, despite our efforts, considering the nature and architecture of the internet (which includes elements that are not under our control), it is impossible to guarantee that malicious actors will not gain access to or misuse personal data, as it is an inherent risk in the use of computerized systems.

Where and for how long will we keep your data?

Your Personal Data is stored in the cloud by Amazon Web Services, whose server is located in the state of Virginia, United States.

We store your Personal Data only for as long as necessary to achieve the purposes for which they were collected.

When you apply for a Selection Process, you become part of the Talent Bank of the Client Company, and your Personal Data will be kept there even after the Selection Process is completed. If you wish to leave a Talent Bank of a specific company or want to stop sharing your resume with Gupy's Client Companies on Gupy's Talent Portal, you can change the privacy settings directly in your profile.

At any time, you can also request the deletion of your account, and thus, your data will be removed or anonymized.

If your account remains inactive, meaning no access or login for a period exceeding 5 years, your data will be anonymized, and your account will be permanently deleted.

For more information on the procedures for deleting your data here at Gupy, check the complementary material available in the Help Center, by clicking here.

Important! The processing of personal data is an essential condition for you to participate in the Selection Processes for which you have applied. If you request the deletion of your account, you will immediately lose access to our Platform's services and will be prevented, for security reasons, from registering again for a period of 10 days. This measure is necessary to prevent fraud in the selection and recruitment processes, as well as to prevent the duplication of a candidate's registrations.

Even after the account deletion request, some information may be retained for legal or regulatory compliance purposes or to protect Gupy's or third parties' rights, including in any judicial disputes.

Additionally, when you are hired by a Client Company, Gupy needs to keep such information stored to enable companies to fulfill their labor obligations or for the regular exercise of rights in any judicial disputes. In this case, we can only delete your data with the express authorization of the Client Company that hired you.

Also, consult the Privacy Portal, where you will find easily accessible information on how Data is used by Gupy.
