The collection of personal information is necessary in order to evaluate individuals as candidates for consideration as part of the executive search process. This information is usually collected directly from the data subject and includes:
- career history
- contact information
- full CVs/resumes
In order to align our processes with our commitment to ensuring equal opportunities, we may collect information about you (in the appropriate circumstances and in accordance with applicable local law) which may be classified as diversity information (or protected legal characteristics under California or federal law), such as your racial or ethnic background, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, religion or beliefs, and/or socioeconomic background. Additionally, as some of our clients may be subject to employment diversity requirements, Pltfrm may be required to share such information insofar as it pertains to the assignment you are a part of. Providing this additional information is voluntary and declining to do so will not affect any assessment or search.
Pltfrm may also collect information about individuals from company websites, LinkedIn, and industry publications. Pltfrm may also collect compensation information from candidates, as well as market views on candidates from third party sources.
If you provide a personal reference or feedback for an individual (depending on the circumstances we may classify you as a Referee or Source), we may collect and process your name, contact details, certain professional and employment details (such as title, occupation, qualifications and employment history), references and feedback, and your connection to the individual. We may collect this information directly from you, the individual, or publicly available sources. Any reference or feedback you provide about an individual would not be attributed to you if shared with third parties unless you allow us to do so.
If you are a Pltfrm client, data collected will typically comprise your contact details (such as name, email address and job title).
Information is collected and used on the basis of “legitimate interest”. If an individual becomes a candidate, engaged in a search process, the basis moves to “consent”.
We do not collect more information than is necessary and we do not use such information for purposes other than those specified.
Using & Sharing Information
We use information collected to match a candidate’s skills, experience, education and professional qualifications with a potential employer.
We delete all information no longer deemed necessary.
Pltfrm ensures that personal information collected is protected from unauthorised access, loss, manipulation or unauthorised disclosure. This is done via appropriate IT and security measures.
Access to Information
Individuals have the right to request access to the information that we hold about them. This can be done by emailing us at email@example.com. Pltfrm may ask individuals to verify their identity before processing this request.
If an individual believes that the information that we hold about them is incorrect then he/she is welcome to contact us so that Pltfrm can update the information and keep it accurate.
If an individual wishes Pltfrm to delete information about himself/herself then he/she can contact us at the email address above to request this.
