Why We Collect and Use Your Personal Information. MDW collects and uses your personal information for the purpose of determining your qualifications for employment and reaching a hiring decision, as well as to comply with applicable laws and regulations, such as laws related to the evaluation of those seeking employment, or to defend ourselves in claims under such laws. Relevant portions of your personal information, if you are hired, also will be used to establish a basic employment record. We do not collect or use the personal information you submit as a job applicant for unrelated purposes.
How We Collect Personal Information about You. Most of the personal information MDW collects about you is collected directly from your application or resume. We may also collect information about you from third parties, in order to: (a) verify information about your credentials, such as education and prior employment, (b) follow-up on references that you may provide, and (c) conduct background investigations. It is MDW’s policy to collect such information from third parties only with your knowledge and agreement. Should MDW wish to obtain such third party information about you, and you have not completed an employment application authorizing us to do so, we will contact you and request your authorization to proceed.
Disclosures of Your Personal Information. Access to your information will be restricted to those MDW staff and designated agents who have a need to know the specific information in question in order to carry out their responsibilities with regard to recruitment or employment law. Your information may also be disclosed to governmental entities in compliance with applicable law in the US and other countries, such as to those agencies authorized to review and enforce equal opportunity laws. We do not disclose applicant information to job banks, or to other companies or external parties.
Your Access to Your Personal Information. Once you have submitted your resume for a specific opening, you will not be able to update the information contained in that resume. A new resume may be submitted when applying for other positions.
Retention and Deletion of Your Personal Information. MDW retains your personal information only as long as is necessary for evaluation for employment, as well as to comply with applicable laws relating to the evaluation of those seeking employment. After this time, normally two years, your information is deleted.
