Revised and effective September 24, 2019

1) Introduction

Perspective LLC (“Perspective,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) is a leader in executive search and human capital advisory services.  Our work for our clients focuses on executive and director recruitment and related board advisory, organizational development and other consulting services (“Services”).

This Privacy Policy applies to personal data that Perspective collects about our clients and website visitors (“you” or “your”) through your access to and use of our website – www.perspective.com (the “Website”) – and our Services, and is intended to transparently convey how we collect, use, disclose, and store your personal data.

By accessing and using our Website or Services, you acknowledge that you have read, understand, and agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy.  If you do not agree to the Privacy Policy, do not access or use our Website or Services.

2) What personal data we collect

We collect several categories of personal data:

  • Personal information that you provide us, including when you interact or correspond with us by telephone, e-mail, video or in-person meetings, or otherwise. The information you give to us (and information we may generate using that information) may include contact information (e-mail address, address, telephone number) and information relating to your professional and educational history and other matters relevant to our Services.
  • Personal information we collect automatically when you access or use our Website, using Google Analytics and our server logs to help us analyze how users interact with and use the Website, compile reports on the Website’s activity, and provide maintenance and other services related to the Website’s activity and usage.
    • Log Information: When you interact with the Website, our servers automatically record usage information that your browser or device sends such as IP address, browser type, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamps, and related data. This information may be stored in log files.
    • Google Analytics: Our Website uses web analytics service Google Analytics, which uses cookies and other tracking technologies. Cookies are bits of text that are placed on your computer’s hard drive when you visit certain websites. Cookies may identify, for example, whether you have visited us before or if you are a new visitor and which site features in which you may find interesting or useful.

  • Information we obtain from other sources, including your employer or other organizations with which you are affiliated, referral sources and background check providers, our clients with whom you may be exploring a placement and our other business partners, and our research of publicly available sources (including organizational or corporate websites, LinkedIn profiles and other social media, and conference brochures and similar materials). We will treat such data in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We are not responsible or liable for the accuracy of the information provided by third parties or for third-party policies or practices.
  • Information from and about our referral sources. If you are an individual who provides a personal reference or feedback for a candidate, we may collect and process your contact details, certain professional details (such as title, occupation, qualifications and employment history) and your connection to the candidate. We may collect this information directly from you, the candidate or from publicly available sources.

3) How we use and share your personal data

If you are a potential candidate, we use the information we collect to present you to potential employers (Perspective’s clients) and to inform and conduct our executive placements.

If you are an individual who provides a personal reference or feedback for a candidate, we will use the information you provide, such as your connection to, experience with, and opinion about the candidate, to gather information on the relevant potential candidate and to inform and conduct our executive placements, and we may share this information with our clients. We may also use your contact details to contact you in relation to any of our Services that we believe may be of interest to you.

If you are a client or supplier, we will collect and use information about your company and individuals within your company for the purposes of fulfilling our obligations to you and furthering our business relationship.

Other ways we may use or share your data:

  • Operating our Website and Services: In order to provide the Website or Services, we may share your personal data with our service providers, including cloud-based information service providers whose products we use to store, manage and access personal data.
  • Improving our Website and Services: To better understand opportunities to improve the quality of the service we provide to you.
  • Compliance and investigations: We reserve the right to use data in connection with suspected inappropriate use, fraud, violations of our terms, or any other activity that threatens to impede Perspective’s and/or its users’ ability to use our Website or Services efficiently and effectively, and as necessary to comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas, governmental orders, or court orders.
  • Communicating with you: We will occasionally send you communications, including marketing communications, based on information you provide or include in your profile, or your use of our Website or Services.
  • We may share or transfer your personal data in the event of a business transaction, such as a merger, acquisition, reorganization, or liquidation, including negotiations of such transactions.

4) How we store your personal data

We will store your personal data for no longer than is necessary for the performance of our obligations or to achieve the purposes for which the information was collected, or as may be permitted under applicable law. To determine the appropriate retention period, we will consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the data; the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of the data; the purposes for which we process the data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means; and the applicable legal requirements.

5) Safeguarding your personal data

We take reasonable measures to protect your personal data from loss, theft, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Nevertheless, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal data.

6) Contacting us regarding your personal data

You can contact us at any time at the email address listed at the end of this Privacy Policy to ask that we do any of the following:

  • Erase or delete all or some of your personal data.
  • Change, update, or correct your personal data.
  • Restrict how we use all or some of your personal data.
  • Provide you with a copy of your personal data.

We will consider and respond to any such requests promptly and otherwise in accordance with applicable laws.

7) Transferring personal data to the United States

Perspective is located in the United States. Please be aware that any personal data we collect may be transferred to and processed in the United States and be subject to United States law. The privacy and data protection laws in the United States may not be equivalent to the laws in your country of residence.

8) Note for European residents

While our focus is generally on the United States, insofar as we may from time to time process personal data of individuals in the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, or the United Kingdom, which processing may be subject to the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), please note the following:

  • We will only process your personal data to the extent applicable law allows us to do so.
  • The United States has not sought nor received a finding of “adequacy” from the European Union under Article 45 of the GDPR. We rely on derogations for specific situations as set forth in Article 49 of the GDPR. In particular, we collect and transfer to the U.S. personal information only: with your consent; to perform a contract with you; or to fulfill a compelling legitimate interest in a manner that does not outweigh your rights and freedoms.
  • If you have any complaints regarding our privacy practices or how we handle any requests you make in accordance with Section 7 above (which requests you may have a legal right to make and we may have a legal obligation to honor, as dictated by applicable law), you may also lodge a complaint with your national data protection authority.

9) Children’s privacy

Our Website and Services are not intended for, nor targeted to, children under 18, and we do not knowingly or intentionally collect information from children under 18. If we learn that we have received information directly from a child who is under the age of 18, we will delete the information in accordance with applicable law.

10) Privacy policies of other websites

Our Website contains links to other websites. Our Privacy Policy applies only to our Website, so if you click on a link to another website, you should read their privacy policy.

11) Changes to our Privacy Policy

We regularly review our Privacy Policy and post any updates on our Website.  This Privacy Policy was last updated on the data written at the beginning of the Privacy Policy.
