What personal information do we collect?
When you fill out our online form to submit your application, we collect and store the personal information that is disclosed to us in one digital file. In addition to the information you provide us, additional information may be added depending on what appears in your resume or communications and the positions for which you are applying or based on interviews, evaluations and surveys we may conduct with you or your previous employers.
In addition, we use the Google Analytics audience analysis tool (hereinafter « Google ») to obtain certain information about users of our website.

This information is intended to inform us about the demographic and geographical data of our users (e.g. age, sex, language, territory, etc.) as well as their behaviour on our Site and their affinities (e.g. lifestyle). Finally, it also informs us about the technology used by them to access our Site (e. g. browser, operating system, devices used, IP address, etc.).
What technologies do we use to collect your personal information?
We use digital forms to collect the personal information listed in section 2.1 and keep it in a database that allows us to retrieve your information quickly. We also use cookie files (commonly known as « cookies ») to allow you to use the job cart without losing the data you have saved.
As for the information collected by our audience analysis tool, Google enters a number in your browser using a cookie file to remember your visit. This then allows Google to associate your browser with the demographic category to which you appear to belong based on other sites you visit. Google also uses your IP address to identify the country, region and city in which your computer connects to the Internet to access our Site.
