Health Advances values the privacy of personal information. California residents have the right to receive notice of the personal information collected about them and the purposes for which we collect this information. Accordingly, this notice is to inform you of the data collection practices related to personal information as a job applicant when engaging with Health Advances.

We usually collect personal data directly from you when you apply for a role with us. We also may collect personal data about you from third parties, such as recruiting agencies, job platforms like LinkedIn, Indeed, and Glassdoor; university recruiting platforms, referrals, your references, prior employers, Health Advances employees with whom you have interviewed, pre-employment assessment tools, and employment background check providers, to the extent this is permitted by applicable law. The categories of personal information collected include identifiers, such as your name, address, and contact information; professional and employment-related information including education history and affiliations, work authorization, inferences drawn from assessment results, prior work experience, salary expectations, and any achievements. We may also collect internet and other electronic network activity when you visit our website, including session cookies and information regarding your interactions with the website. Additional categories of personal information that you voluntarily choose to include on your resume provided to us by you may include protected classifications under California or federal law, including gender, physical characteristics or photos, date of birth, health or vaccination status, and any other information.

Health Advances also collects non-personal data and anonymous information from users to be used in an aggregate fashion. For example, Health Advances may collect system-related information, such as browser type and operating system type, to be used for system administration purposes, to help diagnose problems with our servers, to monitor traffic patterns, to determine which services are used most frequently, and to assess site usage. This information can and will not be used or combined with other information in a way that could identify an individual user.

Sensitive personal data is a subset of personal data and includes protected classifications under California or federal law, such as racial or ethnic origin, gender, age, genetic or health information, political opinions, religious and philosophical beliefs, sexual orientation, biometric information, as well as trade union membership. We do not seek to obtain and will not collect such data about a candidate unless required to do so by applicable laws (e.g., government reporting in the US), with your explicit consent, or where it is voluntarily shared via your resume.

We collect and use your personal data for legitimate human resources and business management purposes including:

  • Identifying and evaluating candidates for potential employment, as well as for future roles that may become available;
  • Contacting references;
  • Recordkeeping in relation to recruiting and hiring;
  • Booking and arranging travel for candidate interviews;
  • Contacting new hires prior to their start date;
  • Ensuring compliance with legal requirements, including diversity and inclusion requirements and practices;
  • Conducting criminal history checks as permitted by applicable law; or
  • Protecting our legal rights to the extent authorized or permitted by law.

We may also analyze your personal data or aggregate data to improve our recruitment and hiring process and augment our ability to attract successful candidates. Unless you tell us otherwise, we may retain your personal data to consider you for future employment opportunities.
