We use the following criteria to determine retention periods:

  • whether any law, statute, or regulation allows for a specific retention period;

These include tax authorities, credit reference agencies, anti-fraud databases and agencies, and screening agencies.

As a result of the global scope of Insight Global’s operations, the sharing of your information with other Insight Global entities, service providers, suppliers, and customers may result in your data being sent to countries outside of your country of residence, which may have data protection laws that differ from those in your country of residence. The areas in which recipients are located will vary based on the nature of the services but may include the United States and Canada. Regardless of the source or destination location of your information, Insight Global will at all times protect your information as described in this Privacy Policy and abide by all applicable data protection laws. Insight Global remains responsible for information that we share with third parties for processing on our behalf.

Data Subject’s Rights

We respect your right to access and control your information and comply with applicable data protection laws and regulations. The amount of personal information you are required to supply when engaging our services is consistent with Insight Global’s interests in providing our services to you.

We process personal information about you for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, including to provide recruitment, placement, employment, outsourcing or related professional services, operate our business, comply with our legal and contract obligations, and fulfill other legitimate interests of Insight Global. In most countries in which Insight Global has an employment contract with you, the processing of contact, payroll, and benefit information is a contractual or statutory obligation, and failure to provide information to allow processing may restrict your ability to be employed by Insight Global.

You may have certain rights in relation to your personal information. The availability of these rights and the ways in which you can use them are set out below in more detail.

California Privacy Rights

For individuals located in the State of California, Insight Global complies with the data protection laws in your state, and if applicable, you have the following rights:

  • To know what personal information is being collected about you.
  • To know whether your personal information is sold or disclosed and to whom.
  • To say no to the sale of personal information.
  • To access your personal information.
  • To request the deletion of any personal information.

Insight Global adheres to applicable data protection laws and will respect individual rights requests under those laws.

Because processing your information is necessary to the performance of recruitment, placement, and employment, outsourcing and related professional services that Insight Global provides to you, a request to exercise certain rights may result in Insight Global being unable to continue providing its services such as recruitment, placement, employment, outsourcing or related professional services. Subject to applicable law, Insight Global also may limit or deny requests or charge reasonable fees.

When your interactions with Insight Global have resulted in your registration for multiple services or resources it may be necessary to opt out from each service separately.

You can opt-out of receiving direct marketing from us at any time. Each marketing communication will provide instructions on how to opt out of receiving similar e-mails from the registered service or resource.
