The Information That We Collect About You and How We Use It
If you are interested in a job at IDQ and you choose to create an account at our online application page, you will have the opportunity to complete an online application and to submit additional information to us. You are responsible for providing information that is accurate, complete and up to date when you submit it through the online application. If you apply for a position, the Company also may collect personal information about you from third parties, such as those listed above, by telephone, letter, fax, email or other means.
We will not request or otherwise collect information about your health, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade-union membership or sexual orientation through the online application or during the application process unless the law, as an exception, requires us to do so.
When you apply for a position in the United States, or indicate the U.S. as a preferred location when registering your profile, you will have the opportunity to provide information about your gender and ethnic origin in order for us to conduct equal opportunity monitoring. The provision of this information is entirely voluntary. If you choose not to provide it, your application(s) will not be affected in any way. If you do choose to provide this information, you consent to our using it for equal opportunity monitoring purposes. This information will be held stored and anonymously.
We will use the information that you submit to evaluate your application for employment and for related recruiting, reporting and recordkeeping purposes, such as to check references or to conduct pre-employment screening.
If Company hires you, the information that you submitted through the online application and the information that we collect during the application process will become part of your personnel file and may be used to administer the employment relationship and for related reporting and recordkeeping purposes. Company will retain this information for the entire duration of your employment relationship with the Company and for as long thereafter as permitted or required by applicable law.
Company will retain information of applicants who are not hired for one year after the hiring decision has been made unless a shorter or longer retention period is legally required. These records will be retained for our internal recordkeeping and reporting purposes. During that time, we may use your personal information to consider you for positions in addition to the position(s) for which you initially applied. If you wish to withdraw your application from consideration at any time during this retention period, you can do so by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may also choose to receive automated emails about positions with IDQ at the e-mail address you provided informing you of positions that may fit your profile. You can do this by setting up a job agent found on the Company career site. To stop receiving these emails at any time, you can click the "update job agent" link on the Company career site and then click “Delete Agent” at the bottom of the page. To make changes to the frequency or type of emails, click Modify Agent at the bottom of the page.
Company employees involved in the evaluation of your application and, if you are hired, in the administration of your employment relationship with the Company will have access to your personal information on a need–to-know basis.

Company will make such disclosures only as permitted by applicable data protection laws.
IDQ’s online application page may contain links to third-party sites. Your use of each of those sites is subject to the conditions, if any, that each of those sites has posted. We have no control over sites that are not ours, and we are not responsible for any changes to, or content on, them. Our inclusion on our sites of any third-party content, or a link to a third-party site, is not an endorsement of that content or third-party site.
Persistent cookies may be used on this website. These are pieces of information or data sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. We use this information to analyze traffic patterns and improve our website. If you prefer not to accept cookies, the help portion of the toolbar on most web browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, disabling cookies may result in certain parts of the website not operating correctly or prevent you from taking full advantage of some of the features of our website.
We want you to feel confident about providing your personal information through the online application page, so we have implemented a security program to keep information that is transmitted to our systems protected from unauthorized access. Your submissions of information to our secure server are protected by Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology, utilized by many popular browsers to safeguard transmissions. This technology allows us to use encryption tools to protect information transmitted between your computer and our server. Through encryption, the personal information you enter, including your name, address, and Social Security number (if requested), is converted into code that is then securely dispatched over the Internet. Once our secure server receives your encrypted personal information, it is translated back into its original form and stored in our service provider’s off-line database. After we have received your information, access to it is limited to those with a need to know.
While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information that you submit through the online application, and you do so at your own risk. We urge you to keep your username, password and any other log-in credentials in a safe place as you share responsibility for maintaining the confidentiality of the information that you submit to us. It is a good practice to sign off your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit to our online application page.
