Privacy Policy

Providing a recruiting service involves the collection, evaluation and disclosure of personal information to Corporate Clients seeking to recruit new employees. Protecting this personal information and ensuring its integrity is therefore a high priority. At BlackShire we are dedicated to protecting your privacy and safeguarding personal information.

Security measures are in place to protect personal information against unauthorized access or disclosure. Our employees have been trained to respect privacy and those employees with access to personal information may only use such information in accordance with the law governing Privacy of Personal Information.

Personal Information Collected
BlackShire maintains a Confidential Database of resumes received from qualified technical professionals and applicants wanting consideration for employment. This Resume Database, along with current addresses, telephone numbers and related contact and interview information provided by applicants when inquiring about employment is maintained in a secure environment.

BlackShire will periodically ask an applicant to update their personal information when conducting a search for a qualified applicant to fill a new position. Applicants are also asked to take the initiative to update their personal information when there are significant changes to qualifications, experience, employment preferences or contact information.

Candidate personal information is retained only as long as necessary to fulfill our recruiting responsibilities and legal requirements governing retention of such records. When dated and no longer of use such records are removed from the Confidential Database.

Use of Personal Information
Personal information, resumes and contact information provided by you, to BlackShire, will only be used for the purpose of evaluating your suitability for employment in current and future employment opportunities received by our recruiters. We present your resume, on your behalf, to our corporate clients ONLY AFTER discussing the particular job opportunity with you, revealing the name of the company and some basic information about the job requirements. If your skills do not match current requirements, we will endeavor to consider your application for all relevant future staffing projects at BlackShire.

The personal information provided by you, is used for the sole purposes of assisting you in your search for employment; we do not sell or otherwise distribute applicant/candidate lists or personal information to any other party.

Consent to Use and Disclosure
By applying for a position through BlackShire and providing us with your resume or other personal information, you agree that we may use and disclose such information to a prospective employer, for the purpose of having you considered for employment.

You may withdraw your consent to future use and disclosure of this information at any time, but when you do, we will not be able to consider you in any search for future employment opportunities.
