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

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).

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

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.
