This policy applies only to information we collect on sites and applications owned or controlled by (AGC). (AGC) is not responsible for the data use practices of social or professional networks, online job boards, employment agencies, or third party companies not associated with (AGC), or any other companies independent of (AGC) who you may also have forwarded your personal contact details to.

We collect the personal information you choose to provide us. This may include your personal contact name, email address, web site address and curriculum vitae or resume. It may also include information which you have entered into an (AGC) online application form. If you are a consultant, learning provider, or a client of (AGC), then you will have a communication and service support file which is stored offline.

In some cases personal information about you may be published online within our web sites online.
