Where we receive custody of personal data belonging to a citizen/resident of the European Union, we use, protect and process it in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and for California residents in accordance with the California Consumer Privacy Act, and for residents of other States in accordance with applicable State laws.
This Statement provides a framework of understanding about the personal data that is collected by Morson and its affiliates listed here (as applicable, hereinafter each separately and/or jointly called the “Data Controller”). Personal data collected by the Data Controller will be controlled and processed in accordance with the terms of this Statement.
Morson respects your privacy, and this Statement provides you with information about the policies and practices Morson follows when it collects personal information. This Statement is available on the Morson homepage, and through a link on every Morson web page, and applies to the collection of personal information by Morson. It provides details about the choices you may make about the collection of your information and how that information is used. By providing your personal information to Morson you permit Morson to use and share that information in accordance with this Statement.
This Statement does not apply to the collection of personal information by third parties, even when Morson provides you with links to the websites of third parties. Morson does not control these third parties, their sites or their policies, and as links are provided solely as a convenience to you without endorsement or representation of any kind, we encourage you to review the posted privacy policies and practices at these sites before submitting any personal information there.
1. Collecting Personal Information
Morson uses personal information with consent.
If you are a job seeker the information collected from you may include contact information (name, address, telephone number, email address); online identification information (user IDs, passwords, security questions); personal history (resumes, education and employment history, work or job interests, reference and background checks); and other information reasonably linked to finding you a position (preferences, choice of contact methods, etc.). In the event that temporary employment is offered to you, we will request financial information from you that is necessary to satisfy the Internal Revenue Service payroll requirements.
Morson also collects information from commercial providers, such as online job boards, and other sources it believes are credible. This information may be used to supplement the information you provide to us.
Morson may collect similar information from other sources in accordance with this Statement, such as from a reference you provide or from a corporate customer but will not collect information that is not reasonably required for the purpose of finding you contract, temporary or permanent employment. Collection may include information of a corporate customer and its personnel.
Morson may also use automatic data collection tools, such as web beacons, cookies, and other common tools that collect standard information that your browser sends out, when you connect to some of our websites. This information may be collected in addition to the information that you provide to us.
2. How we use your information

•Understand your qualifications, needs and preferences;
•Verify your qualifications and background;

•Assess and develop our business and operations so that we may better service job seekers and our corporate customers; and,

3. How we share your information
Morson does not sell or lease your personal information to others and your information is only shared with others in accordance with this Statement.
As a job seeker you rely on Morson to match your information with potential opportunities, so we only share your personal information with corporate customers when we feel there is a potential opportunity that fits your skills. We seek your consent before sharing your information and then only provide the information we believe is needed to allow a corporate customer to make an informed decision regarding you as a job candidate.
To the extent we enter into arrangements with service providers, agents and contractors to store, handle or process personal information on our behalf, such as for data processing, document storage software support and office services, our policy will be to require such parties by contractual or other means to provide comparable privacy protection while the information is processed or handled by them.
Morson uses third party service providers to deliver some of its services. We share with these service providers only that information which is required for them to perform their services, and each service provider is required by contract to keep confidential and secure the information we send them.
As a requirement of providing our services, Morson will store and process your personal information in the US, using US based third party service providers in accordance with this Statement. Any personal information stored or processed outside of the US will be subject to the laws of that jurisdiction.
We may also share your information with our Morson affiliate in Canada if and when we believe it is necessary to support our services, and only where they agree to protect it in the manner set out in this Statement. Except as set out in this Statement, Morson will not share your personal information with other third parties without your consent, unless required by law or a duly authorized legal process, such as a court order.
4. Retention and security of personal information
Morson retains your information only as long as required for the purposes it was collected. For job seekers that would be for as long as you are seeking placement and wish to remain on our systems or as long as legally required by statute or contract.
We maintain the security of your personal information through access control, logical security (security of applications, hardware and data), and physical security of our facilities. In addition, we strive to keep your personal information accurate through processes and policies that help maintain the accuracy of recorded information.
5. Access to your information and accuracy
Morson provides you with reasonable access to the personal information you provide to us. We will provide you with the opportunity to update or correct that information, provided that you can verify your identity to us through the use of user IDs, passwords and/or applicable security questions.
Morson strives to maintain accurate records, but this cannot be achieved without your help, so we ask you to provide us with your most up to date information. To view and change the personal information that you provide to us, or to opt out, you can either contact the Morson person you normally deal with or, contact our Privacy Officer as set out below.
