Personal Information

Exceptions which are not considered personal information include business contact information and other publicly available information, such as names, addresses and telephone numbers as published in telephone directories.

Where an individual uses his or her home contact information as business contact information, we consider that the contact information and not therefore subject to protection as personal information.

Individuals presenting themselves as doing work as sub-contractors are considered to be self employed and the same as a business. Contact information is therefore considered to be business contact information unless explicitly specified below.

We include a privacy protection clause in contracts to ensure that third parties provide the same level of protection as We do.

Disclosure of information to Third Parties

The only circumstance under which personal information may be disclosed to third parties is for the fulfillment of any purposes identified above, or as required by law. If personal information is disclosed for the fulfillment of any purposes identified above, We will ensure that appropriate security undertakings, such as confidentiality clauses in contractual agreements, are employed to protect the transfer and use of personal information. We do not sell, trade, or rent information to third parties.

We will always seek consent when collecting, using, or disclosing personal information. Consent may be withdrawn at any time, subject to contractual or legal restrictions and reasonable notice.

Consent to Collection, Use, and Disclosure for Applicants, Sub-Contractors and Employees

In certain circumstances (e.g., sending a resume, agreeing to the terms of engagement, or agreeing to the terms of employment) We will assume consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information unless notified otherwise.

Consent can be withdrawn at any time, subject to contractual or legal restrictions and reasonable notice.

Personal information is retained only as long as is necessary for the fulfillment of the purposes for which it was collected, or as required by law or best practices. Guidelines are in place for retaining and destroying personal information.

When you send us a resume or other information regarding job or career opportunities, identifiable information about you is kept for a minimum of one year in our Resume Database.

Back-ups of Our servers and databases occur bi-weekly. Back-up tapes are overwritten every ten cycles with an occasionally archived backup being kept indefinitely in locked facilities.

If access cannot be provided, We will provide notification, in writing, of the reasons for the refusal.
