Privacy Policy

Pursuant to our obligations under applicable data protection laws, Elite Executive Search provides the following statement to summarize and inform you about the manner in which we collect, use, disclose, retain and transfer Personal Information (as described below).

 Personal Information. By “Personal Information” we are referring to your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, resume information (e.g., employment history, education, job qualifications, professional credentials, memberships in professional organizations, skills, language skills, hobbies, social media links, personal website, personal or business blog links), citizenship, any photographs of you that are provided by you, information from former employers, background searches, background checks and other references, and any other information relating to you, to the extent we have acquired or you have provided us with such information. We encourage you not to provide sensitive information to us. To the extent you elect to include sensitive information on your resume, we will retain that information. If you submit an inquiry or question via an online form or email, we may collect your name, email address, or other Personal Information contained in that correspondence. By choosing to enter your personal information on this web site, you indicate your willingness to disclose this information to Elite Executive Search and to be considered, when appropriate, for one of Elite’s employment searches. If you do not wish to disclose your personal information, or if you do not agree to our collection, use, disclosure, retention and transfer of Personal Information in the manner set forth in this Privacy Policy, please do not submit your resume or CV online or via email, mail or any other method of delivery which will cause your information to be added to our database.

Our Use of Personal Information. We will collect, use, disclose, retain and transfer Personal Information for purposes such as: (a) for an executive search assignment being conducted by us under an agreement with one of our clients which involves assistance with the identification, evaluation and/or selection of qualified candidates to fill an executive position with that client; (b) to gather statistical diversity and other information about our business, placements and candidates, increase the diversity of our database, provide diversity training to our employees, and/or develop and use marketing materials regarding our placement of diversity candidates; (c) to check or confirm references; to verify the accuracy of Personal Information and conduct appropriate credit and background checks; and (d) to generally develop and improve our services. We will not use Personal Information for any other purpose incompatible with the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, unless it is required or authorized by applicable law, authorized by you, or is in your own vital interest (e.g., in the case of a medical emergency).

Employees of Elite Executive Search may be provided with access to your information for the purpose of fulfilling all of the purposes listed above. We may also disclose Personal Information to: (a) our clients (in most cases with your prior consent); (b) reference sources; (c) our search consultants and research consultants throughout the world; (d) third parties who provide services to us, including assessment services, data analysis, resume verification, background checking, and other administrative and security services; and (e) our strategic partners. We reserve the right to disclose Personal Information to third party subcontractors, including information technology providers and business process outsourcing providers, in order to help support our business operations. We also reserve the right to disclose Personal Information in connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of all or part of the business, or where we believe such disclosure may be required by law or may be appropriate in connection with any legal claims.

 Transfer of Personal Information. We may transfer Personal Information to one or more of our offices and/or wherever our employees, consultants, clients or service providers are located throughout the world, including countries outside of your country of residence which may not provide the same level of data protection as in the country where you reside. In addition, your information may be stored and secured in a database outside of your country of residence and may be maintained by employees located in the United States of America.

 Website Usage Data. Like many websites, we passively collect data about website usage through various means. We use Internet protocol (IP) addresses to identify server problems, administer the Website, and compile aggregated statistics for marketing and research purposes. We have the ability to view navigational data, including log files and click-stream data, to identify information about your web browser and operating system, and the time period in which you visit the Website or a portion of the Website. This information is used to administer the Website, improve site content, and compile aggregated statistics for research purposes. We typically do not combine passively collected data with actively collected Personal Information, and therefore passively collected data should not become linked to your identity.

Links. Please be aware that this web site may contain links to third-party web sites. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by this web site. This Privacy Policy does not apply to, nor is Elite Executive Search responsible for, any content, privacy practices, or conduct of such web sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our web site, take note when the URL indicates you are no longer on this Website, and to read the privacy policy of each and every Internet web site the visit, including those that collect personal and personally identifiable information.

 Protecting Personal Information. Elite Executive Search will take appropriate technical, organizational, and legal measures to secure Personal Information. When Elite Executive Search retains a third-party service provider, that provider will be carefully selected and required to use appropriate measures to protect the confidentiality and security of Personal Information.

 Data Integrity. Elite Executive Search takes reasonable steps to insure that Personal Information we process is reliable for its intended use, accurate and complete as necessary to carry out the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

 Your rights. You always have the right to request that we rectify erroneous or inaccurate Personal Information related to you that we have retained and stored by contacting us and demonstrating such inaccuracy or incompleteness to our satisfaction. If you would like to exercise one of these rights or if you no longer want us to retain Personal Information, or contact you for suitable employment positions, please make your request in writing by contacting us at: info@eliteexecsearch.com.

Please check back to this Privacy Policy from time to time to stay informed. If you do not wish to continue using this web site after reading the revised Privacy Policy, or if you no longer want us to retain your Personal Information, or contact you for suitable employment positions, please make your request in writing by contacting us at: info@eliteexecsearch.com.

If you reside in a jurisdiction outside the United States, by using the Website or submitting any Personal Information, you expressly consent to the transfer of Personal Information to the U.S. and other jurisdictions as described in this Privacy Policy, some or many of which may have data protection laws that differ from the laws in your country of residence.
