WQS’s online service is committed to protecting the privacy of our users. We want to provide a safe and secure user experience. We will ensure that the information you submit to us via our website at www.wqs.com (The WQS Site) remains private, and is only used for the purposes set out in this policy.
Information we collect and how we use it
Your personal details, including your name, e-mail address and resume, are held and used by us for the following purposes:
For matching your coded details with job vacancies, to assist us in finding you the position that most suits you;
For keeping you informed of WQS services, news and wider developments in your chosen field;
For tailoring the version of our website you see when you log on to make it relevant to you; and/or
For compiling salary and other surveys of our candidates.
Disclosure of your information
We will share your information within the WQS group of companies where necessary in order to provide you with our recruitment services.
It is possible that WQS could merge or be acquired by another business. If this happens, we may share the information that relates to you with the new owners of the business and their advisers. You will be sent notice of such an event.
Your resume and related information will be sent to prospective employers but only where you give your consent.
We may also release information relating to you to regulatory or law enforcement authorities, if required to do so. We also reserve the right to disclose the information we have collected about you to our professional advisers and to other persons to the extent that WQS contracts out any aspect of the operation of its recruitment, human resource management, integrated project management and training agency services. These third parties will be acting under similar undertakings of confidentiality as WQS.
To subscribe to job alerts emails, you will be required to provide your e-mail address, which will be used for the purpose of keeping you informed, by e-mail, of the latest jobs in your nominated industry and/or industry news via job alerts.
Should you decide that you no longer wish to receive this information, unsubscribe links are provided in every job alert email that you receive.
Job alerts can also be received via RSS feeds without having to provide your email address.
We give you the option of submitting your resume via this website. You can do this either to apply for a specific advertised job or for consideration by our recruitment consultants for positions as they come up. Although your resume will be stored online, it will only be accessible by WQS group recruitment consultants. Your resume will also be e-mailed directly to our recruitment consultants who review your details and enter them onto our central in-house database.
You can update your resume at any time, simply by following the same procedure to submit a new resume. Your old resume will automatically be replaced.
Aggregate information about WQS online visitors
We gather information and statistics collectively about all visitors to this website and all of the WQS websites worldwide, for example, which area users’ access most frequently and which services users’ access the most. We only use such data in the aggregate form. This information helps us determine what is most beneficial for our users and how we can continually improve our online services to create a better overall experience for our users.
You have the right at any time to ask us for a copy of the information supplied by you that we hold. We have the right to charge an administrative fee for this service. If you would like to make a request for information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. You also have the right to ask WQS to stop using your information.
Please note that clicking on to links and banner advertisements may result in your transfer to another website, where data privacy practices may be different to that of WQS. Visitors should consult the other websites’ privacy policies as we are not responsible for, and have no control over, information that is submitted to or collected by these third parties.
