Effective Date: November 23, 2020.
This policy applies to CarrierBid and its affiliated companies (collectively “CarrierBid”).
CarrierBid understands that your privacy is important to you and is committed to safeguarding the confidentiality and privacy of personal information entrusted to it.
This policy applies to personal information which is collected and/or used by CarrierBid in its capacity as a controller as that term is defined in the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other similar laws (e.g., Brazil’s Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados). California residents should also review the section of this policy addressing their rights. The contexts in which this might occur are explored under “When do we collect personal information below.
When we provide Services to clients, we sometimes handle personal information as a processor. This means that we process the information solely on the instructions of our clients, who retain control of the information.
Therefore, if our use of your personal information is not covered by this policy, you may need to contact the client (and controller) on whose behalf the processing of your information is carried out.
CarrierBid collects personal information from and on behalf of its clients (e.g. about their employees and customers) to provide business advisory services to those clients. It also processes client personal information to manage its relationship with those clients. Further, CarrierBid also collects some personal information from visitors to this website, recruitment applicants, and attendees at CarrierBid events.
CarrierBid uses personal information to deliver its Services to clients. For its own purposes, it also uses personal information to analyze and improve how it delivers those services, to contact representatives of its clients or prospective clients and to market to them, and to administer recruitment and events.
If CarrierBid uses your personal information, you may have certain important rights which you can exercise. The rights you will be able to exercise will depend on how and why CarrierBid uses your information.
The primary point of contact at CarrierBid for questions regarding your personal information is firstname.lastname@example.org.
The CarrierBid entity responsible for your personal information will be the entity that originally collected information from or about you. If you have a direct interaction with CarrierBid (for example, you attend an CarrierBid hosted event), the identity of your controller may be disclosed to you in connection with that interaction. If we process your personal information while providing our Services to clients, your controller will be the CarrierBid entity providing the Services (assuming those Services are provided as a controller, see above for an explanation). Please note that the contact details for all CarrierBid entities in respect of data protection or privacy issues are the same and are as set out below.
We collect information about you if:
The following is a summary of the types of personal information we collect, and the purposes for which that information is used.
CarrierBid collects your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number and any other personally-identifiable information which you voluntarily provide when you submit an inquiry through the “Contact Us” tool. CarrierBid also collects other background information about you in connection with career-related inquiries that you submit through its website.
If you submit an enquiry to CarrierBid about our Services (either over the website, or by emailing, telephoning or meeting with one of our colleagues), then we will process information such as your name, job title and contact information in order to respond to your inquiry.
If you attend an CarrierBid event or webinar, or if you associate with an CarrierBid colleague at, for example, an industry event, then CarrierBid may collect basic personal information, such as contact details, which you voluntarily provide (for example, by filling in a form or handing over a business card) in order to facilitate your participation in the event, and for the management of our relationship with you as an actual or prospective client.
If you or the organization you are associated with becomes an CarrierBid client, then we may process your personal information in order to:
Taking account of applicable marketing laws, we also process personal information about our clients (former, current, and prospective) in order to:
As discussed above, many of our Services involve the processing of personal information. In the majority of cases, personal information is provided to us in strict confidence, subject to restrictive undertakings on its use / disclosure.
Illustrative examples of the use of personal information in connection with our Services, and the legal bases we rely upon for using personal information, are set out in Annex 1 (Use of Personal Information for our Services).
If you apply for a position with CarrierBid, we will need to collect personal information in order to consider your application, and during any interview and assessment phase.
Finally, if you contact us for any other reason, we will collect basic contact details, as well as any other personal information relevant to the reason for your inquiry, in order to resolve that inquiry.
All processing (i.e. use) of your personal information is justified by a “lawful basis” for processing. In the majority of cases, processing will be justified on the basis that:
In limited circumstances, we will use your consent as the basis for processing your personal information, for example, where we are required by applicable law to obtain your prior consent in order to send you marketing communications.
Before collecting and/or using any special categories of data (as that term is defined in the GDPR), or criminal record data, we will establish a lawful exemption which will allow us to use that information. This exemption will typically be:
CarrierBid may also disclose your personal information for the purposes of:
CarrierBid has reasonable technical safeguards, security policies and procedures in place to protect personal information from unauthorized loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Measures we take include placing confidentiality requirements on our staff members and service providers, limiting access to your personal information on a “need to know” basis, and providing training to appropriate CarrierBid personnel. We also maintain comprehensive policies addressing data incident response protocols. Our IT Security Program is audited on a regular basis.
Despite CarrierBid’s best efforts, however, security cannot be absolutely guaranteed against all threats.
CarrierBid retains your personal information for the period of time required for the purposes for which it was collected, any compatible purposes which we subsequently establish, or any new purposes to which you subsequently consent, or to comply with legal, regulatory and CarrierBid policy requirements. This period of time will usually be the period of your, or the relevant client’s, relationship or contract with CarrierBid plus a period reflecting the length of time for which legal claims may be made following the termination of such relationship or contract. Some information (such as call recordings, tax records and certain information required to demonstrate regulatory compliance) may need to be kept for longer. Personal information will be kept for a shorter or longer period of time if so required by law or an CarrierBid policy, if the information becomes subject to a legal hold (for example, following a communication from our regulator) or if we have identified through a data protection impact assessment that a different retention period is appropriate.
You have the right to access personal information which CarrierBid holds about you, together with certain information about how and why your personal information is processed.
You have a right to request us to correct your personal information where it is inaccurate or out of date.
You have the right under certain circumstances to have your personal information erased. Your information can only be erased if it is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected, and we have no other legal ground for processing the information.
You have the right to restrict the processing of your personal information, but only where:
You have the right to data portability, which requires us to provide personal information to you or another controller in a commonly used, machine readable format, but only where the processing of that information is based on (i) consent; or (ii) the performance of a contract to which you are a party. Please note that CarrierBid rarely relies upon consent as a legal basis, and the performance of a contract basis will only be relevant to the extent that you, as an individual, are party to a contract with CarrierBid or a client, and our use of your personal information is necessary for the performance of that contract.
You have the right to object to the processing of your personal information at any time, but only where that processing is based on our legitimate interests. If you raise an objection, we have an opportunity to demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate interests which override your rights and freedoms.
If you reside in the European Economic Area (EEA) and would like to exercise your right to access, review, correct or discuss how your personal information is processed by CarrierBid please contact us at email@example.com.
If you reside outside of the EEA you can also make a request to update or remove information about you by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.CarrierBid will make all reasonable and practical efforts to comply with your request, so long as it is consistent with applicable law and professional standards.
In addition, under applicable local law you may have the legal right to lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority or local data protection authority.
This section provides information for California residents, as required under California privacy laws, including the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). The CCPA generally requires that businesses provide California consumers information about how we use their personal information, whether collected online or offline, and this document is intended to satisfy that requirement. However, the CCPA notice requirement does not apply where we are providing services to our clients, receive personal data and use it solely to provide service to a client and function as a “service provider” within the meaning of the CCPA.
In addition, this policy does not apply to information that we collect regarding employees or in the course of providing or receiving business-to-business services (job applicants should review the CCPA Applicant Privacy Notice on our Careers page).
Under the CCPA, “personal information” is any information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular California resident or household.

We will respond to verifiable requests received from California consumers as required by law.
Right to Non-Discrimination, and Incentives. The CCPA prohibits discrimination against California residents for exercising their rights under the CCPA and imposes requirements on any financial incentives offered to California residents related to their personal information.

*In all cases where legitimate interests is relied upon as a lawful basis for processing Personal Data, CarrierBid takes steps to ensure that its legitimate interests are not outweighed by any prejudice to the rights and freedoms of the underlying data subjects. This is achieved in a number of ways, including through the application of principles of data minimization and security, and by taking steps to ensure that personal information is only collected or otherwise obtained where it is relevant to the provision of Services to a client, and where access to personal information for CarrierBid is reasonably necessary for the provision of those Services.
