Data privacy is important to Ridgeline. This Privacy Statement describes the information we collect about you as a job applicant, how Ridgeline will use the information provided, and with whom we may share the information. The Statement describes your choices and rights related to the information that is provided to or collected by Ridgeline.

Ridgeline, Inc. and its affiliates (“Ridgeline”) are committed to handling personal information that we gather when you apply for a job or other role with us responsibly and in accordance with applicable law. This Privacy Statement (“Statement”) describes how Ridgeline will handle your personal data when you apply for a job or other role with us (whether full-time, part-time, temporary, consultant, internship, etc.) and the rights you have in connection with that information.

We may collect and process personal information from you when you apply for a role at Ridgeline or sign up for product news, including information such as:

  • Name and other personal information, such as gender, date, and place of birth;
  • Contact information, such as address, telephone number, and email address;
  • Past employment history (including previous employers, job titles, or positions) and references;
  • Other academic, professional, training, and salary-related information, such as academic degrees and professional qualifications;

  • Information relating to previous applications you have made to Ridgeline and/or any previous employment history with Ridgeline; and
  • Any other information you voluntarily provide throughout the process, including through interviews or other forms of assessment.

How We Use and Retain Your Personal Information

Ridgeline processes your personal information to administer recruitment activities, such as using your information to contact you about potential job opportunities and to take the steps necessary prior to entering into an employment relationship. As part of the recruitment process, Ridgeline may process your personal information in the following ways:

  • Establishing, administering, and managing all aspects of the employment application process (travel, expenses, development, training, and human resources-related processes);
  • Where necessary to comply with applicable legal or regulatory requirements;
  • Evaluating and reporting the demographic makeup of our workforce, where allowed by
    law (e.g., diversity reporting);
  • Communicating with you; and
  • Other purposes described to you at the time we collect your personal information.

The personal information collected will be stored in accordance with applicable laws and kept as long as needed to carry out the purposes described in this Statement or as otherwise required. Generally, this means your personal information will be retained until the end of your employment application review period, plus a reasonable period thereafter to respond to application-related inquiries, to deal with any legal matters (e.g. judicial actions) or as applicable. If your application for a position at Ridgeline is successful, the personal data collected during the recruitment process will be added to your human resources file and retained as reasonably necessary for the purposes of administering the employment relationship.

Disclosure

As part of the recruitment process, Ridgeline may disclose personal information to the following recipients:

  • Your personal information may be shared with Ridgeline affiliates, with Ridgeline personnel, contractors, and vendors who require such information to assist Ridgeline with establishing, administering, and managing the recruiting process such as members of the recruitment team, interviewers involved in the recruitment process, and other Ridgeline employees if access to the data is reasonably necessary for the performance of their roles;
  • Third-party service providers that process personal information as data processors on behalf of Ridgeline to provide certain services; third parties with whom you instruct Ridgeline to share your personal information;
    law enforcement, other government entities, or authorized third parties where Ridgeline has a good faith belief such disclosure is required to comply with applicable law or to respond to a valid legal process;
  • Other third parties to act on a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to protect your, or other third parties’ safety;
