Privacy Policy


Introduction
Hartstone Rochette is committed to protecting the privacy of your personal data. This statement summarizes our policy regarding the collection, use and transfer of your personal data, the security measures Hartstone Rochette employs to protect such data and your rights in relation to it.

The Information We Collect
Hartstone Rochette is an international, specialist hospitality executive search company which collects, uses and stores a variety of personal data necessary to provide such services.

Executive Search Data
If you are a potential candidate for one of our executive search assignments, categories of personal data we collect may include: contact information (e-mail address, address, telephone number), career history, education history, social activities, compensation details (where permitted by applicable legislation), professional experience, languages, photographs, individual capabilities and preferences, personality, character traits, professional style profile, executive competencies, interview notes (if applicable), identification data (civil/marital status, gender, nationality), and contact history. This data may be obtained directly from you, through publicly available sources and/or third parties such as sources/referees, your professional networking profile, news reports and our authorized background check providers.

It is not Hartstone Rochette’s policy to seek any sensitive information about you unless done for legitimate recruitment purposes and we suggest that you do not provide information of this nature unless necessary.

Referee or Source Data
If you are an individual who provides a personal reference or feedback for a candidate (depending on the circumstances we may classify you as a Referee or Source), we may collect and process your contact details, certain professional details (such as title, occupation, qualifications and employment history) and your connection to the candidate. We may collect this information directly from you, the candidate or from publicly available sources. We will use this information to gather information on the relevant potential candidate such as your connection to, experience with, and opinion about such potential candidates. Any reference or feedback you provide about a candidate would not be attributed to you if shared with third-parties. We may also use your contact details to contact you in relation to any of our services that we believe may be of interest to you.

Client or Supplier Data
If you are a Hartstone Rochette client or supplier, we will collect and use information about your company and individuals within your company for the purposes of fulfilling our obligations to you and furthering our business relationship. Data collected will typically comprise your contact details (such as name, telephone number, email address, job title, and business record related to our services).

 

Where the Personal Data is Held – Binding Corporate Rules
Personal information collected is held on Hartstone Rochette’s global proprietary database, which is accessible to all Hartstone Rochette offices worldwide. A complete list of our offices can be found on our website. In order to guarantee that the appropriate and suitable safeguards for the protection of your personal data are in place, in addition to the privacy practices set out in this Privacy Policy, Hartstone Rochette has established a set of binding corporate rules, approved by a number of European Union privacy regulators. These Binding Corporate Rules are a commitment by Hartstone Rochette to adequately protect personal information of candidates and assessed individuals we process regardless of where the data resides. A full copy of our Binding Corporate Rules can be found here.

Your personal information may also be shared with third parties who we have engaged to provide services such as education checks and/or background checks, to the extent that the checks performed are appropriate and in accordance with local legislation, as well as our third party service providers who perform functions on our behalf such as outsourced document storage providers, all of whom will be required to process your personal information in accordance with applicable data protection laws and this Privacy Policy. Your personal information may also be shared with Referees or Sources in order to obtain additional information about you so we can provide a more accurate profile to our clients.

Finally, your information may also be shared with any competent law enforcement, regulatory or governmental body, or a court of law if necessary to exercise our legal rights, protect your interests or as a matter of applicable law.

We will use the data collected to obtain information regarding your experience with, and thoughts and opinion on a particular candidate or potential candidate. If a candidate provides us with your details as a Referee, we may share your contact information with our clients in order to allow our clients to evaluate a candidate for a specific position. Any reference, opinion or feedback you provide as a Referee or Source shall in no case be attributed to you if shared with a client. We may also use your contact details to contact you in relation to any of our services that we believe may be of interest to you.

Client or Supplier Data
The data collected will be used in the context of the provision of our or your services. We may also use the data for other business purposes, including data analytics, benchmarking and statistic purposes.

Convening
From time to time we may contact you with an invitation to attend an industry- or role-specific event, such as a dinner or charity event. You may opt out of receiving these invitations at any time.

Legal basis for processing your personal information
Hartstone Rochette’s legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described in this policy will depend on the personal information involved and the context in which it was obtained.

We will process basic personal information from you, such as your contact details (name, address, email, phone number) and information that would normally be included in a curriculum vitae (education history, employment history, professional experience, compensation history where permitted by local law, etc.), and competencies, as well as any additional information that may assist us in connecting you to an executive search assignment (such as professional interests or relocation interest) or data that we may have obtained in the context of our leadership advisory services, on the basis of legitimate interests, provided the processing of such information is not overridden by your own privacy interests or your rights and freedoms as provided by law.

Once we proceed to further stages of the search process, we will ask you to sign a consent form for additional processing activities, such as additional information that may come to light during the search process, information you may provide during interviews, information obtained through the use of our proprietary assessment techniques and tools, sensitive personal information (should you decide to voluntarily share this) as well as any insights that we may provide to our clients.

If you require any further information concerning the legal basis on which we process your personal information, you may contact us at privacy@hartstonerochette.com.

These measures will be reviewed over time and upgraded to remain up to date with legal and technological developments.

Retention
Hartstone Rochette will retain your personal data only for as long as the data is needed in connection with the purposes for which is it being collected and used. The following criteria will be used to guide us when retaining your information:

 

Your Rights
You have the right to access, erase, correct, update or complete your personal data, to request the transfer of your personal data to a third party, or to request no further contact from Hartstone Rochette.

Similarly, if we have collected and processed your personal information on the basis of your consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect any processing performed prior to your withdrawal nor will it affect processing on the basis of lawful processing grounds other than consent.

Finally, you have the right to bring a complaint to the relevant data protection authority in your jurisdiction about our collection and use of your personal information. For more information on how to lodge a complaint, please contact your local data protection authority.
