What is ‘personal information’?
Personal information means information about an identifiable individual. If you choose to use our services, we may ask you for some personal information such as your: name, contact details, educational background, work history, personal and professional skills and attributes. If you are using our services to assist you to find placement in a job, you may also be required to submit your curriculum vitae and other documents which may contain further personal information. In some situations, we may also ask for details such as your Inland Revenue Department (IRD) number.
We will only obtain your personal information from you directly except where you are required to undergo any pre-employment or pre-engagement check, in which case we will obtain your consent for us to collect information from other agencies or people for that purpose.
How will the information be stored and who will be able to access it?

All personal information will be stored on our secure database, which may only be accessed by authorised people who work for Jackson Stone & Partners. If you are using our services to assist you to find placement in a job, we may also provide your personal information to clients of JacksonStone & Partners. We will not release any of your personal information to any other person or agency unless you consent or unless we are required to by law.
