Collection of Personal Information
We consider your data to be private and confidential, and we hold ourselves to the highest standards of trust in its safekeeping and use. Our website employs a variety of mechanisms to ensure that data you provide is not lost, misused, or altered inappropriately (e.g., storing all data in a secure location, using passwords, etc.).
Personal information will typically be acquired directly from you via voluntary submission of documents relevant to the search process, e.g., resume or curriculum vitae (including name, address, telephone number, email address, degrees and qualifications, employment history, and other details). It may also include interview notes and comments resulting from reference checks. Additional information may occasionally include biographical data readily available in the public domain.
Apart from verification of employment history, education, and other qualifications, together with subsequent reference testing, Renaissance Search and Consulting will assume that the information provided by you is accurate, complete, and up-to-date at the time of submission.
We collect various categories of personal information on this website. 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. 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, resume or curriculum vitae. If you are a client or potential client, we may collect your name, contact details, title or position for which you are conducting a search, products or services requested, or other information that you provide via online forms or email correspondence. With respect to all website visitors, we do not wish to collect any “sensitive” personal information, such as age, religion, racial or ethnic origin, sexual orientation, government identity numbers such as Social Security or other numbers, health or medical conditions, or criminal history, unless we are legally required to do so for recruiting purposes.
Use of Personal Information
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 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.
The information we collect will be used primarily to support your application for a defined open position. The information assembled will be confined to information provided by you and your third-party references. Disclosure of the assembled information of a particular individual will be made solely to the specific, named client organization we represent, and unless specifically approved by you, will not be transferred to any other third party.
We also may use personal information for the purposes of testing and maintaining our company databases, networks, and computer systems, and for training and other internal purposes.
Disclosure of Personal Information
We may share personal information with our offices and affiliates where necessary or appropriate in connection with the performance of our executive search or other services. 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. 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.

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 use 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 also use small text files called “cookies” that are sent to the hard drive of your computer to store bits of information related to your use of the website. You may configure your Internet browser to reject cookies. However, if you do so, you may not be able to access important functions or enjoy certain conveniences at this website.
Security of Personal Information
Renaissance Search and Consulting maintains reasonable technical and organizational measures to protect personal information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. To the extent that we disclose personal information to third-party subcontractors, we require that such third- parties also maintain reasonable security and confidentiality measures and use the personal information in accordance with our instructions. In addition, where we disclose personal information to clients and other third parties mentioned in the preceding sections, we will request that they properly protect the security and confidentiality of such information, and otherwise process such data in accordance with applicable law.
