Sensitive Personal Information: In connection with the various services we provide, or if you are applying for a job opportunity with us or one of our customers, you may be asked for types of personal information that are viewed by some countries as sensitive personal information. Sensitive personal information includes, for example, government-issued identification numbers (such as national insurance numbers), information relating to a person's race or ethnic origin, political opinions or religious or philosophical beliefs, physical or mental health or condition, sexual orientation, trade union membership, genetic data and any related legal actions, or the processing of biometric data for the purposes of uniquely identifying an individual.

For the most part, we collect and use personal information to effectively provide and improve the Allegis Services (such as our Sites and related staffing and recruiting services, or search, workforce management or talent advisory services) and to comply with applicable laws and government regulations (such as, to comply with mandatory employment, tax, and insurance requirements).

Personal information collected online through the Allegis Services may also be supplemented with information you provide to us through other Allegis Group services, as well as other online and offline sources (such as recruitment fairs, social media platforms (like LinkedIn), trade shows, or other events) and other data appending methods (such as spot tags, tracking, and cookies as referenced below).
We may also use the personal information we receive for the purposes of creating anonymised and aggregated statistics that do not reveal the specific identity of any person.
In most cases, Allegis Group will process personal information for a variety of business purposes which are in our legitimate interests (for example, to operate its business and provide you with services you have requested), in order to enter into or perform a contract with you and/or for compliance with our legal obligations (as described above). However in some cases, and always where required by applicable law, Allegis Group will seek your consent to process your personal information (including any Sensitive Personal Information).

What is HotJar?
Hotjar is a technology service that records user sessions anonymously and captures information—such as what links users are clicking on, or how much time users spend on a page—to help us understand how our users interact with our website. HotJar compiles this information across multiple user sessions and displays it as a visual “heat map” that shows where user interactions occur on a given page. This enables us to see “hot spots” of where users are trying to navigate to and evaluate if our website is serving the needs of our visitors.
How does HotJar work?
Does HotJar record, capture or store any sensitive information or personal data?
What pages of this website use HotJar?
We will only use HotJar on a small subset of its U.S.-based website where content is most relevant to finding jobs and providing jobseeker services. We uses analytics to identify the most-trafficked pages of its site related to finding jobs and uses HotJar on a representative sample of those pages to further improve the user experience.
How can I opt out of being tracked by HotJar?
