Your Personal Information
The type of information we gather from candidates may include full name, physical and e-mail address, information about employment objectives, past and current professional experience, educational background, language skills and other information relevant to a job search.

We do not collect any sensitive information such as racial or ethnic background, age, political or religious beliefs, sexual orientation, health or medical conditions, or criminal records unless legally required for recruiting purposes.
Using Your Personal Information
We provide personal information regarding candidates to clients and prospective employers only if the candidate has requested or given us permission to do so. Occasionally, we may contact candidates to confirm that the information collected is current and accurate, as well as to solicit names of other potential candidates for a search we are conducting. We may also use personal information gathered about candidates to identify professional opportunities that may interest them. In this case, we may contact candidates concerning such opportunities. If candidates and clients contact us by e-mail, we may keep a record of such information and use it to respond to the inquiry. Occasionally, we may also send promotional or informational e-mails regarding our services.
