By accessing and browsing and/or using the pages in this Site, you agree to these terms and conditions (“Terms and Conditions”) and you attest that you are at least the minimum employment age required in the State or Province in which you are located. These Terms and Conditions contain disclaimers and other provisions that limit our liability to you. If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions, immediately exit the Site and do not browse or use this Site.
Additional terms and conditions may apply to specific functions provided through the Site and are additional terms and conditions of which you should be aware while browsing and using this Site.
While we make reasonable efforts to provide accurate and timely description of the duties and responsibilities of the employees working for the independently owned Subway® restaurants located in the United States and Canada (“Subway® Restaurants”) and a method by which you may complete and submit an application for employment to one or more Subway® Restaurants on this Site, you should not assume that the information is always up to date, that this Site contains all the relevant information available about employment with Subway® Restaurants or that any employment opportunities are available at any Subway® Restaurant.
Purpose and Use of the Site
This Site provides available employment information regarding various positions at Subway® Restaurants. Each Subway® Restaurant is independently owned and operated and the Franchisee-owner is responsible for establishing its own hiring procedures and practices. As such, the employment information provided on the Site is a general overview and may not be applicable to each and every Subway® Restaurant.
This Site allows you to complete and submit an Employment Application and Job Assessment Questionnaire (collectively, the “Employment Application”) to one or more Subway® Restaurants within the United States and Canada. By identifying the Subway® Restaurants to which the Employment Application is to be sent and providing your name and email address, you consent and agree to the delivery of your completed Employment Application to the selected Subway® Restaurants and that the Employment Application, and the personal information contained thereon, may be retained on the servers hosted by IPC. Furthermore, by submitting your Employment Application to one or more Subway® Restaurants, you consent and agree that the Employment Application, and the personal information contained thereon, may be uploaded and stored on a cloud platform (the “Platform”) licensed to IPC by a third party service provider.
Disclaimer: All contents of the Site are offered as a convenience to a person seeking employment with a Subway® Restaurant and are presented without any warranty whatsoever either expressed or implied. IPC makes no representations, express or implied, as to the fitness of any Subway® Restaurant as an employer, as to the availability of employment with any Subway® Restaurant, or as to the fitness of any applicant as an employee. IPC does not guarantee that any Employment Application submitted through this Site will be viewed by the selected Subway® Restaurants, nor that the submission of an Employment Application will result in communication from, an interview with or employment by the selected Subway® Restaurants.
In operating and maintaining this Site, IPC is providing a website that serves solely as a conduit through which Employment Applications are completed, submitted and delivered to the Subway® Restaurants.
This is not an employment website for careers at IPC. IPC does not participate in the hiring process of the Subway® Restaurants. IPC is not provided with a copy of the completed Employment Application or Job Assessment Questionnaire or the results thereof. IPC does not, and will not, view, review, assess, evaluate, comment on, consider, or in any other manner look at the information you provide on the Employment Application or Job Assessment Questionnaire or the results thereof.
Once you complete and submit your Employment Application it will be uploaded and stored on the Platform and an email is automatically generated and sent to the Franchisee-owner or designated hiring manager of the selected Subway® Restaurants (the “Hiring Manager”). This email notifies the Hiring Manager that an Employment Application has been submitted to the Subway® Restaurant. The Employment Application will be identified as an active Employment Agreement for a period of thirty (30) days beginning on the date of receipt of the notification email by the Hiring Manager, during which time the Hiring Manager may retrieve, download, view and/or save the Employment Application from the list of active Employment Agreements submitted to the Subway® Restaurant. The Employment Application will be archived thirty (30) days after the notification email is sent to the Hiring Manager, whether or not it has been viewed by any or all of the Hiring Managers of the selected Subway® Restaurants. The Hiring Manager may retrieve, download, view and/or save archived Employment Agreements; however, archived Employment Applications will not appear in the list of active Employment Agreements.
Each Subway® Restaurant has developed and conducts its own hiring process and practices. IPC does not control, educate, train or inform the Hiring Manager how the Subway® Restaurant’s hiring process and practices should be conducted. All hiring decisions are made in the separate and independent discretion of the Hiring Manager. The Employment Application is provided to the Hiring Manager to be used in conjunction with the hiring process and practices of the Subway® Restaurant.
The Job Assessment Questionnaire was developed by an independent third party retained by IPC (“Behavior Analyst”). IPC does not endorse the Behavior Analyst or guarantee the results determined by the Behavior Analyst. IPC does not have any control over and is not responsible for the appropriateness of the questions, relationship between the answers you provide and the results you receive, or the evaluation and scoring of the answers provided by you on the Job Assessment Questionnaire. IPC does not guarantee, represent or warrant the correctness or accuracy of the evaluation and scoring of your answers on the Job Assessment Questionnaire. Additionally, IPC does not receive or view your answers or the results and IPC does not control, educate, train or inform the Hiring Manager how the results should be interpreted or used in evaluating your Employment Application or your fitness as a potential Subway® Restaurant employee.

Independent Purchasing Cooperative, Inc.
9200 South Dadeland Boulevard, Suite 800
Miami, Florida 33156
Technical Support: firstname.lastname@example.org
Independent Purchasing Cooperative, Inc. (“IPC”) is the host of and manages www.ipcoop.com and www.mysubwaycareer.com (together, the “Websites”). IPC is an independent non-profit purchasing cooperative which is owned by and provides services to Subway® Franchisees around the world (the “Subway® Franchisees”).
IPC’s privacy practices are consistent with U.S. law, Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act, and other applicable law, including the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), which governs the collection, storage, use, and transfer of personal information for European Union residents. IPC’s privacy practices are also consistent with U.S. Department of Commerce Privacy Shield requirements regarding the collection, storage, use, and transfer of personal information from the European Economic Area, and it is Self-Certified under the Privacy Shield Framework.
IPC acts as both a controller and processor of your Personal Information within the meaning of the GDPR. The legal bases for IPC’s processing of your Personal Information is your general and express consent as detailed herein and IPC’s pursuit of legitimate business interests.
General and Express Consent Regarding Information
B. Consent to Share and Disclose Information. By submitting Personal Information to IPC, and or/by accessing and using the Websites, you expressly consent to IPC sharing your Personal Information as follows:
IPC shares Personal Information with the following Subway®-related entities and third-party agents or service providers who perform functions on our behalf:
(1) IPC’s wholly-owned subsidiaries Value Pay Services LLC and PLXIS LLC;
(2) Subway® international purchasing cooperatives that are owned by Subway® Franchisees and which provide services to the Subway® Franchisees (the “Co-op Group”);
(3) the franchisor of the Subway® line of restaurants Doctor’s Associates Inc. (“DAI”), and Franchise World Headquarters LLC (“FWH”), which provides core business-related services to DAI (the “Subway® Group”); and
(4) Subway® Group advertising entities that are members of the Subway Franchisee Advertising Fund Trust (the “FAF Group”).
All of these entities are “Third Parties”.
In addition, IPC may also share Personal Information with companies that provide support services to it, such as credit card processors, mailing houses, web hosts, technical support providers, fulfilment centers, or other service providers, as well as companies involved in enforcing or investigating transactions or business operations, because these companies may need information about you in order to perform their functions. IPC limits the use of information shared with these companies to the purpose for which IPC hired them, but IPC does not control these companies. These companies are “Service Providers”. In this policy, both Third Parties and Service Providers are “Recipients”.
C. Consent to International Data Transfers. IPC and the Recipients are multi-national entities with operations throughout the world. In order for those entities to be able to provide you with suitable goods, services, and promotions, you expressly consent to your Personal Information being transferred and disclosed internationally, including within and outside the U.S., Canada, and the European Union. Some of these jurisdictions may have laws that provide less protection to your Personal Information than you receive under the laws in our own jurisdiction. The U.S., for instance, has not received a decision from the European Commission determining that it provides adequate protection to Personal Information. Canada, by contrast, has received such a decision. IPC will take reasonable steps to ensure that any transfer or disclosure of Personal Information to or within any jurisdiction is in compliance with applicable law and receives the level of protection required by the Privacy Shield Framework referenced above and the GDPR. Such steps will include reliance upon the Privacy Shield certification process, other similar processes where applicable, and/or GDPR-compliant data transfer agreements incorporating approved standard contractual clauses for the protection of Personal Information. You can obtain additional details regarding those safeguards by contacting IPC’s Privacy Officer, as set forth below.
D. Consent to Electronic Notice If There is a Security Breach. If IPC or a Recipient is required to or wishes to provide notice of unauthorized access of their data security systems or unauthorized or unlawful access to or processing of your Personal Information, you agree that IPC and/or the Recipient may do so by posting notice on the Websites or sending notice to any email address which IPC or the Recipient has for you.
E. Right to Withdraw Consent. You have the right to withdraw your consent to IPC’s collection, storage, use, and transfer of your Personal Information at any time. You also have the right to request that IPC provide you with access to, correct, delete, or restrict the processing of your Personal Information. If you wish to exercise any of those rights, please contact the IPC Privacy Officer as set forth below.
