Privacy Policy


Janet Wright & Associates Inc. (JWA) is committed to protecting the privacy of the individual personal information that we collect, use, and disclose.

JWA is an executive search firm and collects such personal information as is necessary to provide service to our clients.  By choosing to provide us with personal information, an individual has indicated his/her willingness to disclose this information to JWA, and to be considered, when appropriate, for recruitment opportunities offered by our clients.  As part of our business, when we feel an individual would be an appropriate candidate for a position with one of our client organizations, we request the individual’s permission to disclose his/her personal information to that client.

In the course of providing service to our clients, we also collect personal information from third parties – such as educational institutions or individuals’ previous employers – in order to verify candidates’ credentials.  We also perform reference and background checks on behalf of our clients and collect and disclose to clients such information as is necessary for these purposes. The personal opinions and evaluations given by referees are supplied to JWA in confidence and will not be disclosed to candidates.

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain accuracy of data, and ensure proper use of information, JWA has put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and organizational security procedures to safeguard all personal information.  Maintaining the confidentiality of personal information is a key principle upon which our business is based.  Except as described in this policy or as permitted or required by law, we do not disclose an individual’s personal information without first obtaining his/her consent to do so.

We will use our best efforts to ensure that individual personal information in our possession is accurate, complete, current, and reliable for its intended use.  We will also use our best efforts to protect that information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, and alteration.  We retain information that we collect in accordance with our document retention policy.
