Your Privacy is Important to Us
Protecting the privacy and confidentiality of personal information has always been a fundamental principle in our business relationships. We want you to know that Quartech adheres to privacy legislation that governs what information may be collected, how it is used, and how it is protected. This Privacy Statement explains our privacy policies and information handling practices.
Protecting your privacy means
- We keep your personal information and the business you do with us in strict confidence
- We do not sell, divulge or distribute your personal information except to parties who have a legal right to know
- You have control over how we obtain, use, and give out personal information about you
- You have reasonable access to the personal information we have about you
- We respect your privacy when we market our services
Why we collect personal information
We collect information to represent you for employment opportunities with our clients and to provide information about our services. We understand that some of this information is personal. We collect, use, and disclose personal information only for purposes that a reasonable person would consider appropriate in the circumstances. We will obtain your permission before using your personal information and agree to how it will be used. The information we will collect from you includes but is not limited to the following:
- Your personal profile through your resume and skills profile and information supplied by you
- Your employment preferences, such as work location, salary, and other personal factors important to you
You can visit our website without sharing any personal information. While visiting our site, you may choose to provide information in the form of a resume or by creating a user profile. To be considered for opportunities with our clients, you may choose to provide references.
What we do with personal information
When you provide personal information to us in the form of a resume or references or complete a profile, the information will be stored in our secure database. We may use your personal information to do the following:
- Match your profile against our client’s requirements
- Contact you regarding profile matches
- Contact and obtain information about you from references supplied by you (upon your approval, see “Your information is obtained or used only with your consent” section)
- Provide your information to clients (upon your approval, see “Your information is obtained or used only with your consent” section)
- Improve our site and, where applicable, the services we offer
- For other similar or related purposes that are reasonably necessary for the proper management of Quartech
We may send you information about our company and promotional material from some of our partners from time to time. Your consent may be implied or you may provide your express consent to receive information from us when you submit your application. You can also unsubscribe at any time using our online form on the contact us page.
When you are placed with one of our clients, we will collect additional information to complete the placement process. In addition, we will survey you to ensure that we are offering our consultants the best possible opportunities and to provide our clients with constructive feedback. We will survey clients to verify and confirm that the information we currently have in your file is accurate and to ensure our consultants are consistently meeting client expectations.
Your information is obtained and used only with your consent
We want to assure you that any personal information you provide to Quartech will remain completely confidential until you request otherwise, unless required by law. We do not sell or provide candidate or client information to third parties. We will always obtain your authorization to contact references, and we will always contact you by email or telephone before we submit your profile to a client.
Your consent can be expressed or implied
Consent can be verbal or written. Implied consent means that you have provided your contact information, profile or other personal information to Quartech. You are therefore granting consent to Quartech to use your information in the job placement process and to contact you regarding any matching opportunities. Expressed consent means that you have checked the “Yes, I am providing Express Consent” checkbox.
You may withdraw your consent
While we would like your consent to continue to collect and use your information as outlined above, we want you to know that you do have choices. In addition, you can request to have your information removed from our database or opt-out of receiving optional future mailings at any time by unsubscribing using our online form on the contact us page.
We protect your information from error, loss, and unauthorized access
Quartech shall take appropriate and reasonable steps to protect personal information against such risks as loss or theft, unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, modification or destruction.
Our employees who have access to your information are made aware of how to keep it confidential. Each employee is governed by policies regarding information handling. Only employees who require access to your information in the course of their duties will have access to your information.
We respect the confidential information that we receive from others and therefore will not release any personal information provided to us by third parties without their explicit authorization.
As a member of the Quartech group, you have access to your own information, information about positions that match your profile, plus additional information and tools. Select Quartech personnel have password-protected access to your information. No client or employer contact may view your personal information (identity or contact information) without your prior permission.

You can update your personal information at any time through your account on our website or by contacting our Resource Management Team using our online form on the contact us page.
