Jericho HR Group makes every effort to comply with the European Union Directive, the Australian Privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2000 and other applicable national legislation on data privacy. As part of this effort we have implemented a firm-wide data privacy policy relating to the way in which we process the information provided by clients, candidates and anybody else on whom we hold data. Following is a summary of our policy and procedures:


Information collection

Jericho HR Group collects personal data from individuals in the course of our work in order to be able to provide services as an executive search firm. Typically this data comprises what is included in a standard curriculum vitae/resume, (e.g., name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, employment history, degrees and other qualifications, languages and other skills). It also may include interview notes and a record of our contacts with individuals. In addition, our data may include biographical details found in the public domain as well as information gained from private sources.


We make every effort to ensure that any information held is accurate and kept as up-to-date as possible. We do not obtain information under false pretences.


As a matter of policy, we do not solicit sensitive information (e.g., data on racial/ethnic origin, health, sexual orientation, political opinions, religious/philosophical beliefs, trade union membership). If an individual provides this information, he or she will be required to give explicit consent for us to hold such information.


Use and disclosure of information

All information collected/provided to us is entered into our proprietary database. Only Jericho HR Group employees have access to this data, which is used only for the purposes of executive recruitment and related services.


Any individual who sends us an unsolicited resume or enters his or her personal data into our Candidate Profile System on our Website should be aware that this information might be added to our global database. If an individual does not wish this to happen, we regret that we will be unable to assist him or her in efforts to find a new challenge.


Data transfer among Jericho HR Group offices

In order to provide a truly international service, our proprietary database is accessible to all Jericho HR Group offices worldwide. A complete list of our offices can be found in our company brochure. Some of these countries may not have data privacy laws that meet the high standards of protection that apply in a given individual's country. Nonetheless Jericho HR Group is committed to respecting the same consistently high standards of data privacy throughout its operations worldwide. Any individual who might object to his or her data being made accessible to our colleagues in other offices should inform us of this concern. If this should be the case, we regret that we will be unable to hold that individual's data and/or consider that individual as a potential candidate on any of our searches.



Data transfer to third parties

An individual's personal data will only be disclosed to specific and named client companies with an individual's prior agreement. An individual's data will not be disclosed to any other third party unless Jericho HR Group is required to do so by law.


Information security

Jericho HR Group takes appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect against the loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction of personal information under our control (e.g., multiple levels of user authentication, industry standard security).


All Jericho HR Group employees undergo training on data privacy and security and are required to comply with our strict internal standards in these areas.


All documents provided to clients contain a statement reminding them of the confidential nature of the information they receive as well as their obligation to comply with applicable national data privacy legislation.


Please note that the Website may contain advertisements placed by third-party advertisers and may contain links to other sites that that we believe you might find useful.  Advertisers or the operators of linked sites may sometimes gather information from you.  We wish to caution you that you must take the responsibility for investigating, and must rely upon, the privacy policies of advertisers or of linked sites.  Jericho HR Group has no control over such privacy policies or information submitted to advertisers or linked sites.


Your rights

In accordance with applicable national data privacy legislation, an individual may have the right to contact Jericho HR Group in his or her country of residence to establish whether or not we hold personal data on him or her and the names of any people or organizations that may have received a copy of this data.


Any individual with a record in our database has the right to request a copy of any of his or her personal information accessible by means of a search on his or her name in our systems.


Any individual with a record in our database has the right to request that we rectify any inaccuracies in his or her personal data or that his or her record be removed from our database and other systems.


If for good reason we are unable to comply with such a request, we will let the individual know.


An individual may direct any such requests or any questions relating to data privacy to the Data Privacy Officer at the Jericho HR Group office in his or her country of residence. We may need to ask the individual to provide appropriate confirmation of identity before processing a request.


All requests will be acknowledged and dealt with as quickly as possible and within the time stipulated by the applicable data privacy legislation for the individual's country of residence.
