Artificial Intelligence (AI) / Machine Learning (ML)
Some Job Search functionality provided on Company platforms apply AI and ML technology to identify, extract and structure information coming from the text of the CV/resume you upload and use to create your job search profile. A limited set of CVs/Resumes are used to train and evaluate the AI parsing algorithms annually, to ensure a service offering that is accurate and free from bias.
The search and match component uses the structured data from the job profile you have created to perform queries, create search queries, and rank results. The search and match component is not AI powered and is not trained on user behavior or other signals for machine ‘self-learning’. The search and match component is a transparent normalized search engine that does not learn from user interactions or other user data. The only ML algorithms used in the search and match offering are for the purpose of effective parsing and making the search facility more robust and relevant for users.
No automated decisions are made via Job Search functions that produce any legal or similarly significant effects on you. The job search functions are just one of the numerous ways you can approach the job market to search for opportunities.
How We Protect Personal Data
We maintain technical and organisational measures designed to protect the personal data we collect against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use. Such measures are designed to provide a reasonable and appropriate level of security taking account, on one hand, the technical state of the art and, on the other hand, the sensitivity of the personal data and the evaluation of potential risks.
To provide reasonable and appropriate security and confidentiality of personal data, we apply to the following non-exhaustive list of measures:
- Encryption of data at rest and in transit using industry standard encryption algorithms with appropriate key lengths.
- Strong user authentication and role-based access controls.
- Network monitoring solutions with events logging.
- Hardened network infrastructure.
- Measures for ensuring physical security of locations at which personal data are processed.
- Business continuity and disaster recovery plans with periodic testing.
- Incident management policy and processes.
- Periodic vulnerability and penetration testing.
- Certification/assurance of processes and products.
- Periodic employee privacy and security training and awareness program.
- Third party privacy and security assessments.
- Robust data processing and confidentiality agreements.
- Organizational measures for ensuring data minimization, purpose limitation, retention, data quality and accountability.

How We Will Verify Your Requests
The processes that we follow to provide access to our “Secure Online Portal” and verify the identity of the person making a request to know, update or delete data about whom we have collected personal information are described below.
All consumer requests require multiple verifications to confirm both the email of the consumer making the requests and the “Secure Online Portal’ access requested.
For each new request via our “Online Request Form“, a consumer will receive an email requesting confirmation of their email address to enable access to our “Secure Online Portal”. Once the “Secure Online Portal” is accessed, we will require that you re-authenticate yourself by completing a “Request an Access Code” process and entering the code sent to enable access to the “Secure Online Portal” and two-way communication with the Manpower Group Privacy Team.
You are responsible for protecting the security of your credentials and codes for the “Secure Online Portal” so please do not share your access credentials or codes with anyone. If we suspect fraudulent or malicious activity on or from your account, we will not respond to any request until we have been able to confirm, through further verification procedures, that you made the request.
As an additional access point, a phone number is available for any assistance you may need in making your request via the “Online request Form” and “Secure Online Portal”
All Consumer Requests require verification of a consumer’s identity to confirm they are who they say they are and additional documentation if you are submitting requests on behalf of someone else.
Under Privacy Legislation, a business is only required to respond to requests that are “Verifiable Consumer Requests”. A verifiable consumer request is defined as a request that is made by a consumer, by a consumer on behalf of the consumer’s minor child, or by a natural person or a person registered with the Country of Origin or Secretary of State, authorized by the consumer to act on the consumer’s behalf, and that the business can reasonably verify to be the consumer about whom the business has collected personal identifiable information.
- All Consumer Requests for Personal Information:
- Consumer will need to provide one of the following to verify their personal identity: Scanned Driver License, Birth Certificate or a Utility Bill. A Passport can be used but will require additional address verification documentation when making a request for themselves.
- Consumer will additionally need to provide a scanned Power-Of-Attorney if the consumer request is on behalf of someone else for any reason.
- All Consumer Update Requests To Personal Information also require:
- Consumer will additionally need to provide proof of the changes requested.
We have implemented the following additional procedures when verifying the identity of Consumers making requests:
- If we cannot verify your identity based on the processes described above, we may ask you for additional verification information. If we do so, we will permanently delete the verification information that you provide promptly after we have completed the verification process. We will not use that information for any purpose other than verification.
- If we cannot verify your identity to a sufficient level of certainty to respond to your request, we will let you know promptly and explain why we cannot verify your identity and process your request.
