What information do we collect?

RGP collects certain personally identifiable information from you when, for instance, you apply for a job, request information, register for a seminar or other event or participate in a discussion forum.  Some of this information is provided directly by you, such as your name, email address, phone numbers and details of your resume.  You provide this information to us directly and voluntarily.  RGP does not use Cookies or Web Beacons, or any other indirect electronic means, to collect personally identifiable information on any individual. Cookies are small files containing a string of characters to identify your browser.  RGP does use Cookies to provide a better user experience for those users who register to download publications and then return to our website.  You can reset your browser to refuse cookies or to warn you when they are being sent.  Please note that by turning cookies off, you will not have access to all features available on our website.


How do we use your information?

RGP uses your personally identifiable information only to respond to your direct requests for information, requests to participate in or attend a seminar or other event, to consider your application for employment or, once employed, to internally process your personally identifiable information.  Personally identifiable information will be kept only as long as the original purpose for which it was collected remains applicable.


Will we share your information with third-parties?

As a global professional services firm, we may share your personally identifiable information with our affiliates for the purposes of responding to your application for employment or your other direct requests of us.  However, RGP will not sell or otherwise intentionally provide your personally identifiable information to any third party for sales or marketing purposes.  The only instances where RGP may provide a third party with your personally identifiable information are when you have expressly agreed to such disclosure or where RGP is compelled by court order or other legal process to disclose your information.


What about sensitive personal information?

Sensitive personal information or data refers to certain personal information that European and other data security laws afford special protection because of the nature of the information and the increased risk to the individual if compromised.  Sensitive personal information includes social security or other identity numbers, data about your personal life (including health, genetic and biometric information), racial or ethnic origin, nationality, political membership, religious affiliation, sexual orientation or other similar information.  RGP does not generally collect sensitive personal information.  If we did collect sensitive personal information from you, we would only do so with your prior express permission and understanding of how we intended to use such information.  However, if you voluntarily provide us with sensitive personal information on an unsolicited basis, you agree to allow us to use that information for purposes that comply with applicable law and this Privacy Policy.


Do we allow you to access or change your personal information?

Yes.  RGP allows you to access, correct, update or delete any personally identifiable information that you have provided us through our website.  If you would like to access your personally identifiable information, or correct, update or delete it, please contact Resources Global Professionals, Privacy Team, 17101 Armstrong Avenue, Irvine, California 92614 USA.

What happens in the event of a Data Breach?

In the event that a breach occurs and unauthorized access, collection, processing, release, or any similar unjustified disclosure of information occurs, RGP will take all reasonable steps to mitigate the incurred damages.  RGP will notify the affected individual of the breach, and where necessary, the appropriate authorities.  The aforementioned notification may include a report concerning the circumstances in which the breach occurred, any damages that might have arisen as a result of the breach, and the steps that RGP took to mitigate damages. 


Treatment of Personally Identifiable Information transferred from the European Economic Area and Switzerland to the United States

RGP will protect and safeguard personally identifiable information in accordance with the same standards it uses to protect its own confidential information, and in all cases, it will provide no less than reasonable care.  RGP is implementing a framework consistent with the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) which ensures safe and protected transatlantic data flow.  Additionally, RGP complies with the criterion under the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework with respect to personably identifiable information collected, transferred, and processed from Switzerland. Information regarding the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework can be found at http://export.gov/safeharbor/.


What about Unsolicited Information?

RGP will treat all unsolicited information – information we received, but did not request – with all reasonable safeguards to maintain the security of the individual who provided it.  RGP will determine if the information is necessary to satisfy the purpose(s) for which the unsolicited information was collected, and if the information was provided with the consent of the individual.  If the unsolicited information does not meet the above standards, then it will be destroyed or de-identified (made anonymous so that the information cannot be attributed to a specific individual) in order to protect the privacy of the individual.

 

Links to websites outside of our own

Our website may contain links to other websites, however, RGP does not control these sites or their privacy practices.  Please be aware that any personally identifiable information you provide to websites, other than our own, is not covered by this Privacy Policy.  We encourage you to review the privacy policy of any company or website before submitting any of your personal information.

 

What about Data Security?

RGP has implemented commercially reasonable technological and operational security measures designed to protect personally identifiable information.  Only authorized RGP employees have access to your personally identifiable information, and those employees are required to treat such information as confidential.
