We comply with the Personal Data Protection Act 2010 (“PDPA 2010”), which regulates how we collect, use, disclose, store, correct and protect your personal information.  

By providing your personal information to us, interacting with us, submitting information to us, using the website that is accessible from the URL: careers.decathlon.my (the “Platform”) and/or any other pages on which  this Privacy Policy or a link to this Privacy Policy appears, you are deemed to have read the following policy and expressly consent to our collection, storage, use,  and disclosure and/or processing of your personal data in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Please check our Platform regularly for updated information on the collection, storage, use, disclosure and/or processing of your Personal Data.


Personal data shall have the same meaning accorded under the Personal Data Protection Act 2010 of Malaysia. Personal data is any personal information from which an individual would be identifiable, and it includes information such as name, date of birth, email address, telephone number, NRIC or passport number, address et cetera (hereinafter referred to as “Personal Data”). 

3.1 In accordance with the principles of the PDPA, we will notify you of the purposes and obtain your consent for the collection of your Personal Data, unless an exception under the law permits us to collect and process your Personal Data without your consent. Consent may be express, if it is given through specific words or acts, or implied, if it can be deduced from the conduct of the person whose Personal Data is collected, used or shared.

That information is subject to computer processing for the purpose of managing your application. Your data may also be included in a library of resumes that will enable us to inform you of other opportunities, where applicable.

3.4 Given its ultimate purpose, which is to process the Personal Data of applicants who apply for positions and to include candidates’ data in Decathlon’s library of resumes, processing of your Personal Data is required in order for us to pursue our legitimate interests: managing our recruitment processes and carrying out pre-contract measures that may exist between Decathlon and applicants for employment opportunities.

Such measures include the use of encryption where Personal Data is entered on our Platform as well as limited access to your Personal Data. 

5.2 The Personal Data submitted to us will only be retained for as long as is required for the purpose for which it was collected or as permitted by applicable laws. 

5.3 As we may outsource some of our data processing, your Personal Data may be transferred to, accessed in and stored at a destination outside Malaysia. Where such a transfer occurs, we ask that the third parties provide sufficient guarantees to implement appropriate and adequate technical and organizational measures to such a degree that will ensure the security and protection of your Personal Data. By using the Platform, you hereby expressly consent to the transfer of your Personal Data outside of Malaysia. 

5.4 In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your Personal Data has been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If we have your email address, we may notify you by email. By using the Platform, you consent to our use of email as a means of such notification. 


6.1 As a general rule, Decathlon processes your Personal Data and ensures the security and confidentiality of your Personal Data. We will take the necessary and appropriate measures to obtain your consent prior to the use or disclosure of your Personal Data. 

6.2 The exceptions are where Decathlon engages service providers to perform specific services on our behalf and for purposes mentioned in clause 4.1 above. In such situations, the service providers are authorized to use your Personal Data only to perform the specific services entrusted by Decathlon. As part of our agreement with them, they are required to take all reasonable measures to ensure and maintain a high level of security of your Personal Data. 

6.3 Your Personal Data may also be shared or disclosed to third parties such as our professional advisers, regulatory and government authorities, on a need-to-know basis, where we are under a duty to do so.
