Privacy Policy

RISQ Group incorporating Aim Screening ("RISQ Group") is committed to safeguarding the privacy of information we receive. RISQ Group will collect, use, disclose and store, personal information only in compliance with applicable laws.

RISQ Group will only collect personal information that is needed for it to operate its business activities effectively. RISQ Group will only use or disclose personal information for the purpose(s) originally explained when the information was collected and for any related purpose that would reasonably be expected by both the individual concerned and RISQ Group.

If you have provided your personal information in connection with a background screen ordered by RISQ Group's client – RISQ Group may use your personal information to perform your background screen for that client. RISQ Group also may disclose your information to certain third parties as necessary to conduct the background screening (such as government agencies, law enforcement bodies, public registries, court or tribunal records, ratings agencies, educational institutions, regulatory and licensing bodies, prior employers and other persons or entities that may provide or verify information about you).

RISQ Group is committed to protecting the personal information that we receive against loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.

All personal information that is collected and stored by RISQ Group is protected by complex security technologies as well as detailed internal security measures. All databases are protected by secure network links, which are complemented by firewalls, hardware and software encryption, password protection and virus protection. All our staff are rigorously screened and subject to strict confidentiality undertakings.

RISQ Group will take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information it uses is accurate, complete and up-to-date. If an individual advises RISQ Group that personal information held on them is inaccurate, incomplete or not up to date, RISQ Group will take reasonable steps to update the information accordingly.

A candidate may apply in writing, to the contact details below to obtain details of their personal information which is held by us. RISQ Group reserves the right to levy a reasonable charge to meet the costs of providing access to personal information.

From time to time, we will need to transfer personal information overseas in order to liaise with verification sources. RISQ Group will not transfer personal information overseas without the consent of the individual unless:
The transfer is necessary for the performance of a contract between RISQ Group and the individual, or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken in response to the individual's request. The transfer is necessary for the performance or conclusion of a contract between RISQ Group and a third party that is in the interests of the individual concerned.

The transfer is for the benefit of the individual; it is impractical to obtain the individual's consent and, if it was, the individual would be likely to give it.

RISQ Group has taken reasonable steps to satisfy itself that the recipient of the information will manage the information consistent with this policy.
