As sole owner of all information collected by it, 4C | Continuous Career Counsel & Co (‘4C’) is committed to protecting the privacy of your personal data. This statement summarizes our policies regarding the collection, use and transfer of your personal data, the security measures 4C employs to protect such data and your right to access.

The Information We Collect

4C is a continuous career counseling firm and collects a variety of personal data necessary to provide its services, using a proprietary and highly confidential database accessible only by 4C, derived from information collected directly from you, publicly available sources and third parties (‘personally identifiable data’).

Categories of personally identifiable data may include: name, date of birth, marital status, contact information (address, telephone, email), nationality, education/career information, information derived by professional aids and tools (a.o. assessments, 360°, motivation compass) and evaluation data and scores. By submitting your information to 4C, by whatever means, you indicate your willingness and permission to disclose this information to 4C. If you do not wish to disclose your personally identifiable data, 4C will be unable to provide you with the services it offers, since this personal information is necessary in order to provide professional counseling.

It is not 4C’s policy to seek any sensitive information, unless legally required, for counseling purposes. Sensitive information includes data relating to race or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or similar beliefs, fiscal identity (BSN) or -situation, trade union membership, physical or mental health, sexual life, or criminal record. We suggest that you do not provide sensitive information of this nature. If you do wish to provide sensitive information for any reason, 4C accepts your explicit consent to use that information in the ways described in this Privacy Policy or as described at the point where you choose to disclose.

How We Use and Disclose Personally Identifying Information

By choosing to provide 4C with your personally identifiable data, you indicate your willingness and give your permission to share and have your personally identifiable data stored by 4C and transferred to any personal 4C relationships that may be relevant in the counseling process. 4C will always let you know in advance if and when it shares or transfers your personally identifiable data in such manner. If you object to your personally identifiable data being shared and transferred in such manner or if you do not wish to participate in this service and benefit from the counseling that 4C provides, please do not provide your personally identifiable data to us.

Your personal information may also be used anonymously and in the aggregate in order to put together marketing and employment statistics. Used in this manner, your personal information becomes non-identifying.

We will only use your personally identifiable data in accordance with this Privacy Policy, or where we are required or authorized by law to disclose your personally identifiable data to others, or have your permission to do so. We will use our best efforts to ensure that such data are accurate, complete, current and reliable for its intended use. We also will use our best efforts to protect your personally identifiable data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.

4C does not make use of automated decision-making or profiling.

Information About Others

If you provide us with information about other individuals, for example details of a referee or other personal contact, you must ensure that they have agreed to your providing us with their details.  We would advise you to keep a record of their agreement and provide them with a copy of, or link to, this Privacy Policy to avoid any concern.

Keeping Your Personally Identifiable Data

We keep your personally identifiable data for as long as required to provide the relevant service, and in accordance with legal, tax and accounting requirements. Where your personally identifiable data are no longer required, we will ensure it is disposed of in a secure manner.

Keeping Information Secure

We invest significant resources in protecting your personally identifiable data, from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, modification or disclosure. However, no operating system can be 100% secure and we cannot be held responsible for unauthorized or unintended access that is beyond our control.  

Access Rights

You have the right to request copies of your personally identifiable data which are within our custody and control. If you think any of the personally identifiable data we hold about you are inaccurate, you may request it to be corrected. You also have the right to require us to stop processing and using your personally identifiable data and you have the right to withdraw your previously given permission to process and use your personally identifiable data at any time.

In relation to all of these rights, please email us at the address below. Please note that we may charge a reasonable administrative fee and/or request proof of identity. We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe.

In certain circumstances (for example where required or permitted by law) we may not be able to provide you with access to some of your personally identifiable data, but where appropriate we will notify you of the reasons for this.

If you need assistance accessing, updating, correcting or removing your personally identifiable data from our systems, or if you no longer desire our services, please contact 4C’s Data Protection Officer.
