Your Privacy is Important to us

In the course of serving you as an individual client or as someone associated with a corporate or institutional client, Congentis may obtain personal information about you. Obtaining this information is important to our ability to deliver the highest level of service to you, but we also recognise that you expect us to treat this information appropriately.

We respect the privacy of the users of our website and services and are committed to protecting their personal data and information according to the applicable law including Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation). We do guarantee both 'Privacy by Design' and 'Privacy by Default'.

This policy describes the types of personal information we may collect about you, the purposes for which we use the information, the circumstances in which we may share the information and the steps that we take to safeguard the information to protect your privacy.

The Information We Collect

Congentis is a human capital agency and collects a variety of personal data necessary to provide related services in a proprietary and highly confidential database accessible only by Congentis. Categories of personally identifiable data include your contact details such as your name, email address, birthday or phone number as well as information about your professional education and experience, skills, preferences, membership in professional organizations.

Providing any Candidate Information is purely voluntary on your part. By choosing to enter your personal information on this website, you indicate your willingness to disclose this information to Congentis and to be considered, when appropriate, for one of Congentis' confidential human capital services. If you do not wish to disclose your personal information, Congentis will be unable to provide you the services offered by this website, since employment, educational and other personal information is necessary in order to assess your employment opportunities.

It is not Congentis' policy to seek any sensitive information through our website unless legally required for recruitment purposes. Sensitive information includes data relating to race or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or similar beliefs, trade union membership, physical or mental health, sexual life, or criminal record. We suggest that you do not provide sensitive information of this nature. If you do wish to provide sensitive information for any reason, Congentis accepts your explicit consent to use that information in the ways described in this Privacy Policy or as described at the point where you choose to disclose.

How We Use and Disclose Personally Identifying Information

In order to present you as a potential candidate to potential employers (our clients), your personal information may be shared with clients and/or transferred between Congentis' worldwide affiliates, subsidiaries and licensees. Each Congentis entity is committed to implementing the appropriate data integrity and security measures required of the country in which it resides in order to protect your information.

By choosing to enter your personal information on this website or submitting your application, you indicate your willingness to confidentially share and have your information transferred between Congentis' worldwide affiliates, subsidiaries and licensees and to be considered, when appropriate, for one of Congentis' confidential human capital services. If you object to your information being shared and transferred in such manner or if you do not wish to participate in this service and benefit from the career searches that Congentis provides, please do not enter your personal information into the website or explicitly state accordingly in the correspondence.

Your personal information is used only for the intended purposes stated at the time of collection. Congentis does not sell or share your personal information for related or unrelated purposes to non-licensee third parties, unless otherwise stated at the time of collection or required by law. If at any time we decide to use personal data in a manner different from that stated as the time it was collected, we will notify you and give you a choice as to whether or not we use your information in this different manner. No notification and choice will be sought, however, if Congentis is compelled or required by applicable law, statute, regulation, ordinance or court order to disclose personal data.

Equally, in order to provide for the confidentiality, integrity and reliability of our professional services, you agree that your application be exclusively presented to our clients by Congentis and to abstain from individual agreements and potentially resulting employment relations.

How We Use and Disclose Non-Personally Identifying Information

Your personal information may also be used anonymously and in the aggregate in order to put together industry, marketing and employment statistics. Used in this matter, your personal information becomes non-identifying. Congentis also monitors IP addresses for security purposes, trend analysis, website administration, user movement tracking and broad demographic information gathering for aggregate use. The IP address of the computer you use to access is not linked to any personal information you provide on the website.

Information Security and Integrity

To prevent unauthorised access, maintain accuracy of data and ensure proper use of information, has put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial security procedures to safeguard all information collected online. In addition to requiring all users to sign in with a unique username and password (used for user authentication only), all sections of the website in which personal information is submitted or exchanged employ industry-standard SSL encryption.

We will not process your personal information in a way that is incompatible with what is outlined in the Privacy Statement, and will use our best efforts to ensure that data is accurate, complete, current and reliable for its intended use. We also will use our best efforts to protect your information from loss, misuse, unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.

Access to Information

Subject to the applicable law, you have the right to (a) obtain information about your personal information we process, and to (b) request the correction, deletion or blocking of incorrect personal information or personal information not processed in line with the applicable legal requirements. If you need further assistance accessing, updating, correcting or removing your personal information, or if you no longer desire our services, please e-mail
