1. Collection of Personal Data

ADAPT may collect information about you such as your name, contact details, skills, qualifications, accreditations and your employment history.

Where practical, the purpose for which we collect personal information and the consequences of not providing it will be made clear at the time of collection.

When you visit our website, we may collect information you gave us when:

(a) subscribing to our services or requesting further services on our website; and/or

(b) make any enquiry or query or comment or contact us to report a problem with our website

ADAPT may also collect information from public record and third parties.

2. Use and Disclosure of Personal Data

ADAPT holds, uses and discloses your personal information for the purpose disclosed at the time of collection, or otherwise as set out in this Privacy Policy. We will not use or disclose your personal information for any other purpose without first seeking your consent, unless authorised or required by law. Generally, we will only use and disclose your personal information for the following purposes:

(a) to provide our services to you;

(b) to maintain our business relationship, where you are a user of our website, a client or candidate;

(c) to enable you to submit your CV generally or to apply for specific jobs

(g) to trusted third parties where we have retained them to provide services that you have requested, such as psychometric evaluations or skills tests, and who also provide services to us, such as professional advisers, IT consultants, mailing houses and function co-ordinators. These third parties must comply with similar undertakings of privacy and confidentiality as ADAPT;

4. Accessing Information

You can gain access to your personal information as required by law. All requests for access to personal information will be treated seriously, dealt with promptly and in a confidential manner. ADAPT Executive Search & Advisory aim to acknowledge access and correction requests within 30 days from your request.

5. Right to be Forgotten

Candidates have the right to ask ADAPT to delete and stop processing their personal data. ADAPT will locate every place that it keeps the candidate’s information (e.g. candidate database and spreadsheets) and delete it within one month after receiving the candidate’s request.

6. How we protect your information

There are a number of measures used to keep candidate information secure;

  • Personal information is stored in secured offices on a computerised database which requires a login and password to gain access
  • Access to the database is only available to those who require such access
  • All staff and third-party suppliers are bound by confidentiality agreements regarding company and customer information
  • Visitors to our premises are always accompanied by a member of staff for the duration of the visit
  • Passwords are changed frequently
  • Hard copy information is disposed of in secure bins
  • There is a mandatory password policy for laptops, mobile phones and portable storage devices

7. Complaints

You have a right to complain about the handling of your personal information if you believe that we have interfered with your privacy. Please make a complaint to us in writing in the first instance. We aim to acknowledge receipt as soon as possible and commit to resolve all complaints no later than 30 days. However, there may be instances where this is not possible due to the contents of the complaint. In such circumstances, we will respond to your complaint in a reasonable and practical time. You may wish to contact the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) if you are not satisfied with our response to your complaint.
