Information We Collect
GICC Management Consulting collects personal data, including some client services, during its business operations. We also gather personal data on specific areas of the Sites when you register for or apply for jobs through the GICC Recruitment Portal, create a user profile, subscribe to GICC newsletters and alerts, sign up for conferences and events, and/or participate in public user posting areas (such as bulletin boards, discussion forums, and surveys). The personal data collected may vary and can include information you provide, like your name, mailing address, email address, phone number, fax number, and background details needed for job applications.
We may also automatically collect information about the devices you use to engage with our Sites. This automatically collected information can include IP addresses, device identifiers, web browsers, and browsing data gathered through cookies, web beacons, pixels, clear gifs, and other similar technologies (collectively, “Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies”) on our Sites. Additionally, we may automatically collect information about how you utilize the Sites, such as what you have searched for and viewed on the Sites. The information gathered automatically may be linked to a unique identifier and any other personal data you have provided.
GICC may also obtain personal data about you from third parties, like data brokers or aggregators, during its business operations, including in connection with some client services. This comprises demographic, professional, and other publicly available online information, including details you decide to make public through social media platforms and other public online forums. We may merge this data with existing information about you or use it independently for purposes such as benchmarking and data analytics activities (e.g., analyzing recruiting practices across industries, detecting fraud patterns in financial transactions, and foot traffic in retail environments). We will always strive to verify that the third party has provided transparent information about its use of this data, including its disclosure to third parties like GICC, in compliance with applicable laws.
Use of Information
Our Sites do not track you by gathering personal data about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. Therefore, we do not modify our data collection and usage practices in response to “do not track” signals transmitted from web browsers.
The legal grounds for processing your personal data
Our processing of your personal data for the purposes outlined above is based on the following:
- Our legitimate interests in promoting and safeguarding GICC, fostering and maintaining relationships, recruitment, and delivering our services;
- Your consent, for instance, when you create a user profile, sign up for our newsletters or alerts, or for business purposes that support web operations, such as enhancing and understanding the quality of your experience on our websites;
- Compliance with the law when specific information is required to fulfill our legal or regulatory obligations.
Disclosure of personal data: data recipients and international data transfers
Personal data collected during GICC’s business activities, including in connection with some client services, as well as on the Sites, may be transferred from time to time to GICC subsidiaries and affiliates and their personnel throughout our global organization, as well as to our third-party service providers located worldwide, including in countries where local law may provide you with fewer rights than those in your own country. Additionally, the Sites may be viewed and hosted by GICC and our third-party service providers anywhere globally. When required by law, we have established legal mechanisms to ensure adequate data protection of your personal data processed by GICC subsidiaries, affiliates, and third-party service providers, including the transfer of your personal data to countries other than the one where you reside. If you would like more information about these legal mechanisms, which may include the EU’s Standard Contractual Clauses, please get in touch with us at the address below. By using any of the Sites and providing information on any of them, you voluntarily consent to the such cross-border transfer and hosting of such information.
We may also share your personal data with third-party service providers who perform services and functions on our behalf to support our interactions with you, such as processing recruitment materials, administering surveys or contests, or communicating with you.
Furthermore, we may disclose information about you:
- If we are required to do so by law or legal process;
- To law enforcement authorities or other government officials;
- When we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity;
- If disclosure is necessary to protect the vital interests of a person;
- To protect our property, services, and legal rights;
- To prevent fraud against GICC, our subsidiaries, affiliates, and/or business partners;
- To support auditing, compliance, and corporate governance functions; or
- To comply with all applicable laws.
Additionally, we may disclose or transfer your personal data in the event of a reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, or other transfer or disposition of all or any portion of our business.
The Sites may enable you to sign in and link your social network accounts, including, but not limited to, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and YouTube, with GICC. The Sites may also allow you to log in to a GICC account using certain social network account credentials.
If you wish to disconnect a social media account from us, refer to the settings of that social network account and its provider.
GICC has adopted generally accepted technology and operational security standards to safeguard personal data from loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Only authorized GICC personnel and third-party service providers are granted access to personal data, and these employees and service providers are obligated to treat this information as confidential. However, GICC cannot guarantee that unauthorized individuals will not gain access to your personal data.
GICC retains personal data as necessary for the duration of the relevant business relationship.
We may also retain personal data for longer than the duration of the business relationship if we need to protect ourselves against legal claims, use it for analysis or historical record-keeping, or comply with our information management policies and schedules. If you request that we delete your personal data, GICC will make reasonable attempts to delete all instances of the information in its entirety.
