We may make changes to our Privacy Statement at any time. Any changes will become effective immediately and will be posted on our Web site.
We gather information about users through optional, voluntary submissions. As is common with other websites, log files are stored on the encrypted web server, where details such as the visitor’s IP address, browser type, referring page and time of visits are saved. Cookies may be used to remember a visitor’s preferences when interacting with the website. Where registration is required, the visitor’s email and a username will be stored on the server. If you have concerns about disclosing your personal information online, please contact HQI, or your local office for assistance in setting up an appointment to register or apply in-person.
This stored information is used to enhance the visitor’s experience when using the website to display personalized content and possibly advertising. E-mail addresses will not be sold, rented or leased to 3rd parties. E-mail may be sent to inform you of news of our services or offers by us or our affiliates.
If you have subscribed to one of our services, you may unsubscribe by following the instructions which are included in e-mails that you receive. You may be able to block cookies via your browser settings but this may prevent you from accessing certain features of the website.
HQI offers you the option to engage in SMS text conversations about your job application. By participating, you also understand that message frequency may vary depending on the status of your job application, and that message and data rates may apply. Please consult your carrier for further information on applicable rates and fees. Carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages. Reply STOP to cancel and HELP for help.
By opting-in to receiving SMS text messages about your job application, you acknowledge and agree that your consent data, mobile number, and personal information will be collected and stored solely for the purpose of providing you with updates and information related to your job application. We are committed to protecting your privacy and shall not share or sell your consent data, mobile numbers, or personal information to third parties under any circumstances.
We give users options wherever practical.
Cookies are small digital signature files that are stored by your web browser. They allow your preferences to be recorded when visiting the website. They may also be used to track your return visits to the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
We take reasonable steps to protect your personally identifying information as you transmit your information from your computer to our site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or free of error. The processes of our business include, with your consent, sharing your personal candidate information with our employees and clients on a need to know basis in order to carry out our staffing services, that is, to try to find job matches for applicants and fulfill staffing service requests of client companies.
For the most part, communication with us through the Web site is via e-mail transmission. E-mail transmission is not private or encrypted and may be intercepted by others. Please contact us by a method other than e-mail, if you want to keep certain information confidential.
