This policy lets you know how Ascend HR Corp and its affiliates and subsidiaries ("Ascend" or "we") collect and use your personal information in connection with HR Maximizer and Ascend's recruiting efforts more generally, both online and offline. This policy describes the broadest potential use of personal information; we may make less use of your personal information than is described here.
Your provision of personal information in connection with the recruiting or job application process confirms your consent for Ascend to collect that information and to use, transfer, retain and share it with third parties as specified in this policy.
Collecting Personal Information :
You may provide personal information to Ascend. Ascend HR Maximizer asks for certain data, including educational and employment background, contact information and preferences, job qualifications, and jobs for which you would like to submit an application. You also may choose to provide Ascend additional information, such as your CV, resume, or transcripts; employment references and related information; and compensation requests. In addition, Ascend may collect information from third parties, for example, in connection with a background or employment check and/or an employment reference.
Sensitive Personal Information :
Ascend does not request or require sensitive personal information concerning religion, health, sexual orientation, or political affiliation in connection with recruiting. If you have a disability and would like Ascend to consider any accommodation, you may provide that information during the recruiting process. As well, in some countries we ask for information such as race or ethnicity for the purpose of monitoring equal opportunity; however, we do not require applicants to provide race or ethnicity information, and if you provide this information it will not be viewable in the hiring or selection process.
To the extent information you provide contains details of your racial or ethnic origin; political opinions or beliefs; religious beliefs; membership in a trade union or political party; physical or mental health or condition; sexual orientation; commission or alleged commission of an offense or related proceedings; job evaluations or educational records, you expressly authorize Ascend to handle such details as specified in this policy.
Voluntary Disclosure :
Your provision of personal information in connection with recruiting is voluntary, and you determine the extent of information you provide to Ascend; please note that if you decide not to provide information, it may affect our ability to consider you for employment.
Using Personal Information :
The information may be used to communicate with you, to manage Ascend's recruiting and hiring processes, and for compliance with corporate governance and legal and regulatory requirements. If you are hired, the information may be used in connection with employment and corporate management.
Data Recipients and Sharing with Third Parties :
Ascend may share your personal information internally and with service providers and other third parties as necessary in connection with recruiting, employment, corporate governance, acquisitions and legal or regulatory requirements, to respond to requests from public and government authorities, including public and government authorities outside your country of residence, for national security and/or law enforcement purposes. Ascend requires that its service providers and such other third parties keep your personal information confidential and that they only use the personal information in furtherance of the specific purpose for which it was disclosed. Ascend and its service providers may use your personal information in an anonymized format (in a form in which your identity cannot be determined) for other purposes not specified above, including in the development and testing of products and services.
Security and Confidentiality :
Except as otherwise stated in this policy or as required for legal or regulatory purposes, Ascend treats your personal information as confidential and will not disclose it to third parties without your consent. Ascend maintains, and requires its services providers to maintain, reasonable administrative, physical, and technical controls designed to protect the confidentiality and security of your personal information. Ascend employees who may have access to personal information are required to keep that information confidential.
Ascend may employ security procedures at its facilities and on its computer systems to monitor and maintain security, including the use of closed circuit television. Any monitoring of Ascend facilities, systems or assets is performed in accordance with applicable law.
Retention and Access :
Ascend may retain your information to consider you for other job opportunities. To the extent permitted or required by law, Ascend may delete data at any time; accordingly, you should retain your own copy of any information you submit to us.
You may access and correct personal information you have submitted online using Ascend HR Maximizer. You may submit other requests by emailing us using our online contact form or by mail to 8807 W Sam Houston Pkwy N., Ste 250, Houston TX 77040, USA, Attn: Vice President.
