Privacy Policy & Electronic Messages Consent

The Finance Department Limited respects and protects the privacy of individuals in all aspects of our business operations. We are committed to protecting the personal information of candidates when providing services to our clients. Your personal information is only collected, used and disclosed by The Finance Department Limited in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Why do we collect your personal information?

As a potential candidate using The Finance Department Limited’s services, we request that you provide certain pieces of information in order for us to provide you with the best possible service. In addition to your contact details, your resume, and a description of the type of work you are looking for, your file may also include our interview notes, information obtained through reference and background checks, educational records, reference letters, and other test results. If you were to work through The Finance Department Limited on a temporary basis with one of our clients, we would require information to provide our payroll service, including banking details and tax deductions.

The Finance Department Limited uses your personal information to understand your qualifications, needs and preferences. We, in turn, seek to find the best job opportunities for you that will give you the job satisfaction you are looking for. Your information is also used to fulfill our clients’ requests for information about potential job candidates and to assess and develop our business and operations to better service job seekers and our clients. We will also use your personal information to send you email messages about our company and/or job postings that may fit your profile. Should you choose to not receive these emails, you may opt-out at any time by contacting our Privacy Officer.  We never use or share the personal information you provide to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

The Finance Department Limited never collects more personal information than is needed to fulfill these purposes, unless requested by the client and consented to by the candidate.

In order to tailor our subsequent communications to you and continuously improve our services, we may also ask you to voluntarily provide us with information regarding your personal or professional interests, demographics, experience with our services, and contact preferences.

When do we disclose personal information and to whom?

Your information is only disclosed for The Finance Department Limited’s legitimate business purposes or as required to meet legal and regulatory requirements. For example to comply with a court order.

In the normal course of business, we disclose your personal information to our clients when we feel there is a potential for a job placement. As a potential candidate, you are relying on us to share such information. We will only provide your information to employers if there is a job opening that is well suited for you, and we only provide information required and requested to make an informed decision regarding a job candidate. At no time will we release your personal information to clients without your verbal or written consent.

We may share information with our affiliates, partners, contractors or other companies (collectively “representatives”) that we use to provide full staffing services. However, we only disclose limited information as required for the function that will be performed by the representative on our behalf. We also ensure that every contract we enter into with a representative clearly outlines the representative’s obligation to protect your personal information.

Wherever possible and when necessary, we obtain your express consent for particular uses and disclosures.
