Resumes and Applications
Since www.whistler-jobs.com is a staffing site, you may send us your resume. Resume and application information may be stored on the site and digitally in our secured database. Only WPS employees access your personal information and are fully aware of WPS’ privacy policies. WPS does not sell this information to any group or company outside of WPS. It can, however, with your permission, share applicant information with a third party at WPS’ sole discretion if you are responding to a job posting. We do not send your resume to any party without your consent to do so.
Effective January 1, 2004, the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act requires that individuals provide consent to the ongoing use of their personal information. Our Application Form contains a Consent option and must be checked in the affirmative in order to have you on our file. We imply this provides permission to use your personal information for purposes that are obvious to you. For example, if you list references on your resume, we will not seek additional permission before checking with these individuals.
How Long is Your Information Retained?
We retain your information as long as we are offering placement services to you, or longer if required by law. For permanent placements and temporary employees, we retain your information for seven years after you accept a position.
Update or Remove Personal Information
In the event you do not wish to continue receiving occasional information from WPS, or to change, remove, or modify information previously provided, please e-mail details of your request to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with “remove” in the subject line.
WPS does not collect information from minors under the age of 16. All individuals under the age of 18 must obtain parental permission before providing any information to this web site.
