  • Individuals who communicate with VRG about a specific job opportunity posted by VRG on internet job and recruitment websites or respond to a communication from VRG about possible interest in a job opportunity;
  • Individuals who, in their public-facing online and social media postings, indicate an interest in learning about, or demonstrate possible suitability for, job opportunities in certain careers, businesses, professions, or areas of experience; and
  • Individuals who a client identifies and engages VRG to contact regarding a job opportunity.

Other Individuals’ Information.  In the course of its business, VRG also collects and processes certain personal information of:

The following categories and sources of personal information collected and used by VRG are summarized below.

This information may include: contact information including first and last name, e- mail address, postal address, telephone number, and communications preferences; resumés and categories of personal information generally presented on a resumé or voluntarily provided in a job interview including, but not limited to, current and past employment experience, functions, and employers, education, skills, professional or other licensure, employment and career interests and preferences including location and compensation objectives, and similar information.

VRG does not collect or process confidential personally identifying information (such as social security numbers, other government-issued identification numbers, or financial account information); nor do we collect medical, health, origin, beliefs, or other personally sensitive information. 


Our clients determine the job position, scope of search, screening questions, and qualifications for each candidate search we conduct on behalf of that client. We share with the client any useful information about a candidate we collect from online and other research sources. However, only with the candidate’s consent will we disclose the personal information that a candidate provides directly to VRG. Clients are able to review the information collected about a candidate using their Client Portal and the client may add comments, download, or copy a candidate’s information. The handling of a candidate’s personal information by the client is covered by the privacy practices of the client. Candidates should review the privacy policy or privacy statement of the prospective employer (identified in advance by VRG), which is generally available on that company’s website.

In addition, VRG may disclose personal information to the following categories of third parties that process personal information on behalf of VRG for the purposes identified under the section titled “Purposes of the Processing and Legal Basis.”

  • Service Providers.  We share information with third-party service providers who provide support for our business operations.  These may technology services such as network management and data storage, and cloud-based business management software such as email marketing services and e-commerce contact management services.  We use commercially reasonable measures to select service providers who demonstrate their commitment to protecting the personal information we entrust to them and who maintain privacy guidelines that are consistent with our Privacy Policy. 
  • Website analytics. We use cookie-based tracking such as Google Analytics and other third party services to generate statistics about website activity.  Information about how Google Analytics collects and uses this information is available at: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en . These tools help us better understand the ways in which visitors use our Website and identify users who may be interested in receiving marketing communications about our products and services.  For more information, see the section titled, “Cookies and Analytics Tools.”
  • Direct Marketing.  We use third-party e-mail marketing services to assist us in sending e-mail marketing messages to prospective clients. These services will have business contact information. A recipient may unsubscribe from these marketing communications at any time.
  • Legal Compliance, Safety and Security.  We may disclose personal information to law enforcement, legal authorities, and other third parties in order to comply with laws, regulations, court orders, or other legal obligations or to assist in an investigation, to protect or defend our rights and property or the rights or safety of candidates and others, to enforce this Privacy Policy or agreements with third parties, or for crime-prevention purposes.

VRG has implemented organizational and technical measures to protect personal information from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction, and to keep personal information accurate and up-to-date as appropriate. Personal information is stored by VRG on our servicers, and on the servers of the cloud-based database management services we engage. Our service providers are expected to implement reasonable measures to protect the personal information they process in providing support services to VRG. We use reasonable technical measures to protect the personal information that is accessible through our Client Portal and the online response link we make available to candidates to facilitate communications with VRG. However, no security system or system of transmitting data over the internet can be guaranteed to be entirely secure and individuals need to be careful about the information they transmit electronically or share online. VRG does not collect or process sensitive, special categories, or directly identifying personal information (such as social security numbers, other government-issued identification numbers, or financial account information). 


VRG retains personal information for the duration of the candidate’s business relationship with VRG and for a period of time thereafter to allow clients to recover candidate data for their internal review purposes and in furtherance of VRG’s own operations including possible future communications with the candidate, analysis and improvement of business performance, and for backup, archival, and/or audit purposes. A shorter retention period will apply if required either by law or by the client who originated the search in which the candidate was identified. Where VRG retains personal information provided directly by a candidate for a specific job opportunity, that information will not be disclosed to any other client unless the candidate gives consent to such other disclosure. Where required by law, VRG will not retain a candidate’s personal information for future communications purposes unless the candidate gives prior consent.

VRG retains client records and employee contact and other information for the duration of the contractual relationship and so long as permitted by applicable law and VRG retains a legitimate interest in the information (particularly for reasons of ongoing business relationships, future marketing, business analytics, as needed for legal claims, and documentation of compliance with legal or other requirements).

These technologies allow VRG (and third parties we authorize) to obtain information about a user’s browser and visits to our Website and Client Portal, which can be used to identify credentialed users and to analyze individual and aggregated visiting patterns.

Session cookies support the functionality of the Website and track which pages and links the user visits and for how long. Session cookies are automatically erased when the user closes the Website. However, any access to the Website is logged automatically during use and connection data (such as the IP address) cannot be deactivated for individual users. 

Persistent cookies, which are erased after two years, enable saving certain settings for future sessions and allow for an automated log-in. The user consents to the application of persistent cookies by using the Website and selecting the specific functions that allow persistent cookies (e.g. automated log-in).

Persistent cookies and other internet technologies also enable VRG to measure and analyze the visits to the Website and collect data on the activities of users of the Website and the Client Portal. For data analytics involving the Client Portal, a VRG affiliated company located in Bangkok, Thailand controls the use of cookies and other internet technologies. For Website analytics, VRG uses Google Analytics and/or other third-party data analytics providers to place the cookies, record usage data, and provide reports to VRG.  These third-party services may be located in any country worldwide. Google Analytics, which is operated by Google Inc., is located in the U.S. and Google states that it complies with the data protection rules of the EU-US Privacy Shields and the Swiss-US Privacy Shields. 

VRG does not disclose any directly identifying personal information to a third-party data analytics provider. However, the provider may monitor a user’s visits to the Website and combine this data with data from other websites monitored by the same service provider and then use these findings for its own commercial purposes. The provider may have means of correlating data from our Website to an identifiable individual, in which case the processing of personal information will be the responsibility of the service provider. 

By using the VRG Website, the user consents to the processing of personal information by both VRG and the Website analytics services provider, including Google Analytics. Information about how Google Analytics processes information is available at the following link (https://google.com/analytics/answer/3450482? hl=en).
