2. Data collection

Witena Leadership Advisory collects a variety of personal data necessary to provide services to its clients. Browsing the website does not require personal identifying information, and the website does not offer a career portal where a person’s record can directly be submitted to Witena’s database. The information we collect may derive from direct requests to individuals, or from publicly available or third-party sources. Typically, the categories of information we gather include: record/CV and contact information, career history, educational history, and professional experience, including interview notes or comments from third parties. Witena has the following principles governing the collection of personal and confidential information:

• Witena Leadership Advisory is the sole owner of the data. The information is stored in the firm’s database.
• by submitting a record or any other information to Witena Leadership Advisory, the person indicate his willingness to share and have his information transferred to be considered for suitable and confidential search assignments. We will store and retain personal information in our database for present or future consideration.
• we use personal information only as permitted or required by law for the purposes of Leadership Advisory.
• Witena Leadership Advisory makes every effort to ensure that any information held is accurate and kept as up to date as possible.

3. Data release

We disclose personal information to parties outside Witena Leadership Advisory only under the following circumstances:

• to clients who engage us to recruit an individual or mandate us to identify individuals with a similar background to a required search profile. In the context of specific international executive search assignments, we may disclose selected records to the preferred collaborators of our international network and their clients.
• under no circumstances do we sell, share or rent personal information to other organisations.
• in exceptional circumstances only it may be necessary for us to disclose personal information if we believe, in good faith, that disclosure is otherwise necessary or advisable to protect Witena Leadership Advisory’s interests. If so, we will seek to ensure that we disclose only the information required.
