Ascender offers executive search and other recruitment services. In our processes we collect personal information about candidates. When we refer to personal information we mean information or an opinion, from which the candidate’s identity is apparent or can be reasonably ascertained. We are committed to promoting confidence in the manner in which personal information is handled by us, and are highly focused on how we collect, use and disclose such information.
We collect personal information about candidates (such as name, e-mail address and physical address) when they provide it to us through registration of personal information through our website, submitting a resume or answering online assessments. We use the information we collect to support our services. The candidate’s provision of personal information to us is voluntary, however if they do not provide such information they may not be able to participate in our processes.
By using our online system for application and registration of personal information all candidates agree with our policies regarding privacy and information security. All personal information will be retained for a period necessary to complete our processes, or longer if required by law.
We protect the quality and integrity of personally identifiable information and we have implemented appropriate technical and organisational measures to do so. We have implemented security policies, rules and technical measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control from:
• Unauthorized access
• Improper use or disclosure
• Unauthorised modification
• Unlawful destruction or accidental loss
All our employees and data processors, who have access to and are associated with the processing of personal data, are required to respect the confidentiality of our candidate’s personal data.
However, no security system, or system of transmitting personal information over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If there is any reason to believe that interaction with us is no longer secure, please immediately notify us of the problem.
