The information you submit will be stored in the United States and will be reviewed and used for the above mentioned purposes by employees, consultants and/or service providers, such as recruiters for Hertz legal entities.

Personally identifiable information about you may also be disclosed by Hertz to third parties who provide services such as Web site hosting or information technology consulting services; Web site management; data analysis; legal services; accounting services; and other administrative and back-up and security services.

Service providers or consultants acting on Hertz’s behalf will be obligated to protect your personally identifiable information. Access to your personally identifiable information will be limited to individuals who have a business need to access such personally identifiable information and may include recruiters, human resources personnel, technology support, and managers or their designees.

Data Retention

We are required to retain information of candidates applying for jobs within the United States. Personally identifiable information of candidates applying for jobs in other parts of the world will be retained in accordance with local law. All candidates are encouraged to update their data when appropriate.

If you accept a position with Hertz, the information collected on this Site will become part of your personnel record and will be used for employment/work-related purposes.

We have security measures and tools, such as firewalls, in place to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, although we strive to protect personally identifiable information we collect, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us through or in connection with the Site. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of your account has been compromised), please notify us immediately of the problem by contacting us in accordance with the section entitled "Questions" below.

Hertz will take appropriate technical, organizational, and legal steps to secure personally identifiable information about you.
