- Information we collect and how we use it
Talentism collects personal data from you when you request information from Talentism and/or supply information through the Sites, such as when you fill out a subscription form or contact form, opt in to receive emails from Talentism, agree to participate in surveys, or apply for a role at Talentism.
Personal data we collect might include your name, email address, title, occupation, company affiliation, industry, region/country, relationship to Talentism, reason for contacting Talentism, topics you are interested in, any other background information provided with an application and any other information contained in messages you send us.
Talentism will use your personal data to fulfill your request, provide you with the information you requested and/or send you marketing communications. If you have applied for a job at Talentism, your data will be processed for the purposes of evaluating and processing your application and candidacy for the position to which you have applied. We may also use your information to analyze and improve our recruiting and onboarding processes as well as to communicate with you about Talentism events and to send you publications that we think may be of interest to you. More detail can be found in the Job Applicants section.
Talentism may collect personal data and may disclose such information to third party service providers in aggregate for marketing and promotional purposes. However, in these situations, we do not disclose to these entities any information that could be used to personally identify you.
You do not have to provide us with any personal data. However, if you do not, we may be unable to handle your request or to provide you with the services you are requesting.
Talentism will keep your personal data for as long as needed to handle your request or for as long as we have a relationship with you. If you have applied for a role with Talentism, Talentism will keep your personal data associated with your application.
Please note that Talentism is not responsible for any information you may disclose publicly in any chat rooms, message boards, or similar web pages, including those hosted on or linked to our Sites. You should keep in mind that, whenever you publicly disclose information about yourself online (for example, via message boards or chat rooms), such information could be collected and used by people whom you do not know. In addition, certain message boards and similar user forums may display IP addresses along with the message poster’s name and message. Talentism bears no responsibility for any action or policies of any third parties who collect any information users may disclose on the message boards, chat areas or other user forums, if any, on the Sites.
- Who we share your personal data with
We may share your personal data with others, such as:
- selected third party service providers, such as marketing service providers (if you have subscribed to our marketing communications), IT systems providers, recruitment service providers, background check providers, data cleansing providers or event organizers, so they can provide services to Talentism;
- our advisors;
- law enforcement authorities or other government bodies when we are required to do so.
Third parties, other than law enforcement authorities or government bodies, will only handle your personal data on behalf of Talentism for the purposes described in this Policy. Talentism will not sell or otherwise share your personal data with such third parties for their own use.
The companies of the Talentism group and other third parties we share your information with may be located in other countries, including countries that do not offer the same protection to your personal data as the country in which you reside. Where that is the case, Talentism ensures that your personal data is protected by using appropriate legal mechanisms. If you reside in the European Union, such mechanisms include using contracts or wording approved by the European Commission (called “Standard Contractual Clauses”).
- Links to other websites
- Security of your personal data
Talentism has implemented appropriate technical and organizational security measures in order to protect your personal data from loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Such measures include anonymizing  or pseudonymizing data where possible. Authorized Talentism personnel and third parties mentioned above will only have access to your personal data to the extent they need it to do their job or provide their services. Despite these precautions, however, Talentism cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will not obtain access to your information.
- Your Rights
Depending on where you reside, you may be entitled to certain rights regarding the personal data Talentism holds about you. For instance, you may have the right to request access to your information, obtain a copy of it as well as information about how we use it. You have the right to request that we correct incorrect, inaccurate or out-of-date information about you. You may also have the right to request that we stop processing your information and/or withdraw your consent to such processing and to ask us to delete your information.
In the event that Talentism holds personal data about you and you no longer wish for this data to be processed as described in this Policy, or if you wish to access, rectify, cancel or oppose such processing, please submit your request using our data subject request form.
If you receive marketing communications from Talentism, you can opt out of receiving future emails from Talentism or unsubscribe from participating in our programs through the “preferences” page, which is accessible in every marketing email you receive from Talentism. You can also submit an opt-out request by using our data subject request form.
If you think we are handling your information unlawfully, we encourage you to get in touch with us using our data subject request form. You may also have the right to lodge a complaint with your national supervisory authority.
Please note that we will take reasonable steps to check your identity before handling your request.
- Job Applicants
If you apply for a job at Talentism, you will be asked to submit information to Talentism such as your name, contact details, information about your education and work history and any other background information that might be relevant for your application or that you choose to share with Talentism. If you do not provide this information to us, we might not be able to process your application.
Talentism will use this information to assess your application and candidacy for the position to which you have applied. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, this may include: (i) evaluating your skills and experience in relation to the qualification required for the job to which you have applied; and (ii) tracking feedback and interactions we have with you throughout the recruiting process. We may also use your information when analyzing our internal recruiting processes to determine (1) which recruit sources to focus on; (2) how to improve integration and training programs for new hires with different educational backgrounds and work experience; and (3) how to enhance our interview model to improve hiring quality. The information you provide may also be used to communicate with you about Talentism events and to send you publications that we think may be of interest to you.
We might share your personal data with other companies in the Talentism group as well as with third parties such as recruitment service providers, background check providers and IT system providers. These Talentism companies and third parties might be located in a different country than your country of residence.
We will keep your application data for an indeterminate period of time. If you no longer wish for Talentism to process your data or if you wish to exercise your rights, please complete the data subject request form.
Our Sites are not directed at children 16 years of age or younger. Talentism, therefore, will not intentionally collect information about anyone under the age of 16, and requests that no such information be submitted to us.
