Your privacy is important to us. We respect the confidentiality of the personal information provided to us in context with our executive search assignments, and have developed this Privacy Policy to demonstrate our firm commitment to our clients and to candidates and other users of this Site.

This Privacy Policy explains how Acertitude collects, uses, and discloses individually identifiable information (“Personal Information”) that we obtain through our Site. Please read this information carefully. By using the Site, and/or submitting any Personal Information, you expressly consent to the terms in this Privacy Policy.

Acertitude is committed to continuously improving the Site experience for our visitors. Therefore, we collect aggregate data about our visitors such as page views, visitor frequency, Internet browser usage, and length of time spent on the Site. This information is analyzed internally to understand the effectiveness of our Site.

Like many websites, we collect data about Site usage through various means. Information regarding how a user accesses the Site may be automatically collected through the use of cookies. This information is used to improve Site performance and is not shared with other organizations. If you continue without changing your cookie settings, you consent to the use of cookies on this Site. You may change your cookie settings at any time by adjusting the cookie settings in your individual browser. If you do so, you may not be able access certain parts of this Site.

We collect various categories of Personal Information on this Site. If you submit an inquiry, response, or question via an online form or email, we may collect your name, email address, or other Personal and Business Information contained in that correspondence. If you are a potential candidate, we may collect your name and contact details, information about your employment objectives, past and current employment and professional experience, educational background, language skills, and other data that you provide online through a form or a resume or CV. If you are a Client or potential Client, we may collect your name, contact details, title or position, products or services requested, or other information that you provide via online forms or email correspondence.

With respect to all Site visitors, we do not wish to collect any “sensitive” Personal Information, such as racial or ethnic origin, age, political, religious, or philosophical beliefs, sexual life, social security or other government identification numbers, trade union membership, health or medical conditions, or criminal history unless legally required for recruiting purposes. This Site is not directed at children 13 years of age or younger. Acertitude, therefore, will not intentionally collect information about anyone under the age of 13, and requests that no such information be submitted to us.

We may use Personal Information to respond to your inquiries and answer your questions, to provide you with requested information, and to undertake activities in connection with the conduct and management of our executive search or other services, such as evaluating candidate qualifications, contacting potential candidates for further Personal Information, contacting named references, and communicating with Clients about potential candidates. We may share Personal Information with our offices and affiliates worldwide where necessary or appropriate in connection with the performance of our executive search or other talent services. We also may use Personal Information for the purposes of testing and maintaining our company databases, networks, and computer systems, and for our marketing, sales, training and other internal purposes.

We reserve the right to disclose Personal Information to third party subcontractors, including information technology providers, marketing, 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. We may also use, disclose, or otherwise process any information for statistical or any other purposes that we choose in our sole discretion, as long as such information is not in personally identifiable form.

Acertitude has implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operational security in order to protect your Personal Information from loss, misuse, alternation, or destruction. Despite these precautions, however, Acertitude cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will not obtain access to your Personal Information.

Acertitude reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to alter and update this Privacy Policy form time to time; therefore, we urge visitors to our Site to review the current version of the Privacy Policy when visiting our Site.
