Collection and Retention of Information
In order to provide you the services of the Génome Québec Human Resources Portal, Génome Québec requests personal information (name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, contact information) and any other information from which your identity is discernible.

Since we believe that career management is an on-going process, your job application history is retained by Génome Québec’s Human Resources Portal for a maximum of six (6) months.

Use of Information by Génome Québec
Génome Québec uses the information it gathers to manage and improve its Human Resources Portal.

Génome Québec may also use the information gathered to inform you of other services available (from Génome Québec or its partners) or to request your opinion of current products and services or potential new services that may be offered.

Génome Québec may use your contact information to send you e-mails or other communications regarding updates on the Génome Québec Human Resources Portal (new opportunities, additional listings etc.).

Disclosure of Information to Other Parties
Génome Québec may disclose information collected through its Human Resources Portal if it is legally required to do so, if requested to do so by a governmental entity, or if we believe in good faith that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with the legal process; (b) protect the rights or property of its Human Resources Portal or partners; (c) prevent a crime or protect national security; (d) protect the personal safety of users or the public.

As a career Website, the Génome Québec Human Resources Portal offers its users the opportunity to post their resumes in our database.

Génome Québec limits access to our resume database (or copies thereof) only to the selection committee and human resources department, as well as law enforcement and national security agencies. You can withdraw your resume from our database at any time. However, members of the selection committee and human resources department may have retained a copy of your resume in their own files or databases. Génome Québec is not responsible for the retention, use or privacy of resumes in these instances.
