Borderless Commitment to Data Protection

The Company has enacted internal procedures that are reviewed and monitored on a regular basis to ensure the protection of personal data in accordance with applicable laws. These procedures comply with data protection principles under EU General Data Protection regulations (GDPR EU 2016/679).

The Data We Collect

We collect relevant personal data when we interact in the course of leadership advisory or executive search consulting projects, when you register via our web portal, sign-up for our newsletters, or when you contact us directly. We may also collect personal data about you from publicly available sources, licensed databases and business partners.

Data collected includes names, contact details such as email, phone numbers, address as well as professional background, compensation, personal assessments, and any data you have provided in your resume, CV, or in any other communication with us.

The Way We Use Your Data

The Company collects and processes personal data to conduct its services, and to communicate with you directly or through electronic means.

We will not use your personal data for purposes other than those for which you have specifically given your consent.

Access, Edit and Delete Your Personal Data

You have the right to access, edit and delete your personal data.

Our web portal enables you to access, edit and delete your personal data, as well as customise the purpose for which the Company may use it.

You can request access or entirely remove all of your personal data from our database, at any time, by sending an email to the Company Data Controller:

To safeguard these rights, the Company periodically requests the renewal of your consent and choices. In the event that you do not respond to our renewal request, Borderless will no longer use or process your personal data.

Data Retention

Your personal data is not retained by Borderless for longer than necessary for purpose for which it was originally collected, or for which it was further processed.

We ensure that your personal data is reviewed within three years and deleted, unless it has been updated by you or the Company within that timeframe.

Sharing Your Personal Data with Third-Parties

In addition to sharing your personal data with authorised Company personnel, we may also share it with third-parties. These include clients of the Company, service providers to the Company, or regulatory agencies; these data processors are selected by the Company and have confirmed that they comply with the terms of this Privacy Policy and applicable laws.

Your personal information is safely stored in our systems, which may be hosted and accessed by service providers outside of the EU. These providers are required to comply with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework to guarantee the protection of your personal data.

The Company discloses data to third-parties solely in compliance with the terms of your expressed consent.

The Company’s personnel follow regular training on data protection, and are committed to safeguarding your rights.

The Way We Secure Your Information

The Company employs reasonable precautions – to the highest current technical standard – to prevent your personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction.

This is achieved by storing your information in secure electronic systems that have physical, electronic and supervisory procedures in place that comply with all applicable data security regulations.

In the event of a data breach, the Company will notify you within 72 hours of a breach having been identified.

How Your Dispute or Complaint May Be Resolved

Any questions regarding the use of your personal data should be directed to the Data Controller. We will attempt to resolve any complaint relating to the misuse or improper disclosure of personal data by investigating it in accordance with the principles contained in this Policy. Appropriate corrective and preventative action will be taken and follow-up on such action will be conducted to verify that the complaint has been resolved.
