TYPE AND USES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM YOU:
Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”)
Generally, you can visit our Site without revealing any personal information about yourself. At times, though, we or vendors operating on our behalf may need information about you, such as when you apply for a job or request information from us. Unless otherwise indicated, the information we request is optional, but you may not be able to use parts of our Site without providing such information. We may gather certain personal information from you to help us better serve you through transactions and promotions, as well as to respond to inquiries, requests for information, and opportunities. We only collect personally identifiable information when you choose to reveal it to us.
Our Site collects information from our web forms that may be displayed on our Site. At these places, we may ask you to give us contact information (like name, company name, title, email address, phone number, and address, along with answers to questions topical to the web form and an ability to state additional information).
When you email a question to one of our team members, we receive your email address and any other information you choose to include in your email. If you use other web forms to submit inquiries or sign up for mailing lists or other information, we will collect the information you submit.
When you submit an inquiry about a job through the Site, we may ask for information such as your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, career selection or job interest, work experience, and other information related to employment opportunities including an option to upload your resume. We may use third parties to collect and process such employment related information. We may use the information you provide to match your experience and preferences with the job openings we have, and someone from Howden Tiger may contact you about a possible employment opportunity. Please note that by submitting your information regarding employment opportunities with the Howden Tiger, you authorize us to transmit and store your information in our recruitment database.
