This Job Applicant Privacy Policy is intended to describe processes for collecting, distributing, and protecting Personal Data, as well as your rights with regards to your Personal Data, specifically in connection with your application for a job through our websites. On our websites, you will be required to indicate that you have read and agree with this Job Applicant Privacy Policy before you will be allowed to apply for a job with us.

This Job Applicant Privacy Policy is intended to apply only to those persons who are residents of the United States of America.

In connection with your application for a job with us, Personal Data collected by us includes information that you voluntarily submit to us, and may include the following:

 

COLLECTION OF PERSONAL DATA

Providing Personal Data to us in connection with your application for a job with us is voluntary. However, if you do not provide us with certain information, or do not provide sufficiently detailed information, we may be unable to consider you for a job with us.

To the extent you voluntarily provide us with your Personal Data in connection with your application for a job with us, or make such Personal Data available to us through a third party, we may collect such Personal Data in the following ways:

 USE AND SHARING OF PERSONAL DATA

We may use your Personal Data in several ways, including the following:

RETENTION OF PERSONAL DATA

At the time we collect your Personal Data in connection with your application for a job with us, we may store such Personal Data for the purposes of evaluating your eligibility and suitability for one or more positions with us. In addition, after the job application process, we may continue to store such Personal Data for the purposes of evaluating your eligibility and suitability for future positions with us. We may also retain certain information obtained from your Personal Data where such information has been aggregated, de-identified, anonymized, or pseudonymized such that it is no longer capable of identifying you, for the purposes of evaluating and improving our recruiting process.

PROTECTION OF PERSONAL DATA

We take precautions to protect the Personal Data we collect and store. All of our employees, as well as all of our service providers who have access to Personal Data, are obligated to protect it and keep it confidential. However, no system or electronic data transmission is completely secure. If you give us your Personal Data, you do so at your own risk. We expect that you will use appropriate security measures to protect your Personal Data.

YOUR RIGHTS REGARDING YOUR PERSONAL DATA

 Rights of California Residents (this section applies only to California consumers)

 California consumers have certain rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”). Your rights and our obligations under CCPA are explained below.

Access and Disclosure Requests: Under CCPA, California consumers have the right to request, up to two times in a 12-month period, that a business disclose what Personal Data it has collected, disclosed, and sold about them in the 12 months immediately preceding the request. Here are the specific types of information California consumers may request, as well as an explanation of TNS’s practices for each one:

The categories and specific pieces of Personal Data that the business collected about them in the preceding 12 months, the business purpose for such collection, and corresponding categories of sources from which the business collected the information.

    • In the last 12 months, TNS has (or may have) collected the following Personal Data:
      • TNS has (or may have) collected the Personal Data you provide to us, or that you make available to us through a third party, in connection with your application for a job with us as described in the “TYPES OF PERSONAL DATA COLLECTED” AND COLLECTION OF PERSONAL DATA” sections (above).
    • You may send an access request to TNS through the following channels:

 

  1. The categories of Personal Information, and the categories of third parties to whom the business disclosed their Personal Information in the preceding 12 months, and the business or commercial purpose for such disclosure.
    • In the last 12 months, TNS has disclosed no Personal Data in connection with job applications with us to any third parties.

 

  1. The categories of Personal Information and the categories of third parties to whom the business sold their Personal Information in the preceding 12 months, and the commercial purpose for such sale.
    • TNS does not sell any Personal Data in connection with the job application process.

 

Deletion Requests: Under CCPA, California consumers may request that a business delete any Personal Data that the business collected from or about them. Each such request is subject to reasonable verification of the consumer’s identity by the business. Note that there are some reasons a business will not be able to fully address a California consumer’s request, such as if the business needs to complete a transaction for the consumer, to detect and protect against fraudulent and illegal activity, to exercise the business’s rights, for the business’s internal purposes, or to comply with a legal obligation.

 Opt-out Requests: Under CCPA, California consumers may direct a business that sells Personal Data about the consumer to third parties not to sell the consumer’s Personal Data.
