Southpaw Kitchen (“Southpaw Kitchen,” “we” or “us”)  is committed to protecting the personal information you include in your resume submitted using our online resume submission resource. We have created this Resume Submission Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) to inform you of how we will use the personal information you submit through the online resume upload, job search and/or job application functions of the “Chef Application” section (the “Section”) of our public website (the “Site”). Please read this Policy carefully. Personal information submitted elsewhere on the Site will be used in accordance with our general Privacy Policy.

Personal information you submit through our Section, including through our online job search tool or to one of the email addresses provided in the Section, will be collected by Southpaw Kitchen in the United States and/or in the jurisdiction where the position contact is located and may be shared with our affiliated entities or joint ventures in other jurisdictions. This Policy is governed by United States law.

You are free to decide what types of personal information, if any, to submit to us. Submitting your personal information is entirely voluntary. However, if you choose not to submit your personal information, this may limit our ability to consider your candidacy. Please read this Policy carefully.

  1. What types of information does this Policy cover?
    This Policy covers any personal information you submit through the Section, including through our online job search tool or to one of the email addresses provided in the Section, as part of the job application or job search process, such as:

    • resume, cover letter, previous work experience, education, transcripts;

    • employment preferences, willingness to relocate, desired salary;

    • how you heard about the position; and

    If you intend to provide us with details of a reference or any other third party as part of your resume, it is your responsibility to obtain consent from that third party prior to passing their personal information to us.

    You are responsible for the content of the information you provide to us and you must ensure it is legal, honest, truthful, accurate and not misleading in any way. You must ensure that the information provided by you does not contain material that is obscene, blasphemous, defamatory, infringing on any rights of any third party, or otherwise legally actionable by such third party.

    The personal information you submit here will be used for the following purposes:

    • to assess your capabilities and qualifications for a job;

    • to conduct reference checks;

    • to conduct background checks if you are offered a job;

    • to create and submit reports as required by law or regulation; and

    • to contact you about career opportunities.

    If you are hired by a client, any personal information that you submit may become a part of your file and may be used for other employment/work-related purposes.

  3. Who may access your data?
    The personal information you submit here may be stored in the United States (and in relevant jurisdiction(s) if the job is outside of the United States) and will be reviewed by hiring employers working with Southpaw Kitchen, and employees and consultants of Southpaw Kitchen in order to evaluate your qualifications and experience for career opportunities with our organization.
    In addition, we may contract from time to time with various third party service providers to provide us with recruitment tools that enable us to manage our recruitment process more efficiently. These third party service providers may collect and maintain our recruiting database for some geographic regions according to our instructions.

Personal information of candidates applying for jobs in other parts of the world will be retained in accordance with local law. We will retain information you submit to consider you for other jobs for which you may be qualified. If you would prefer that we not retain your information for such purposes, please let us know by contacting us as indicated below.  We may delete your personal information at any time (including your resume and cover letter), without any reason. Therefore, you should retain your own copy of all personal information provided to us.

In some cases we may ask applicants for Protected Information for the purpose of monitoring equal opportunity or complying with applicable law. This information will be recorded and separated from your application before the selection process begins. If you have a disability and would like to indicate as part of your application any relevant effects of your disability and any adjustment which you consider should reasonably be made to the process to assist your application, please do so in the relevant field during the application process.
