Applicant Privacy Policy

AMD Law is a law firm that respects the privacy of its job applicants and employees, and is committed to complying with applicable privacy laws in the United States and abroad.  Our Applicant Privacy Policy is intended to inform you about how the personal information you submit as an AMD Law job applicant through this website will be handled and protected by AMD Law.

How We Collect Personal Information about You.

The personal information AMD Law collects about you is collected directly from your application or resume, and stored on company servers located in the United States. We may also collect information about you from third parties, in order to: (a) verify information about your credentials, such as education and prior employment, (b) to follow-up on references that you may provide, and (c) conduct background investigations as necessary and required by law. It is AMD Law’s policy to collect such information from third parties only with your knowledge and agreement. Should we desire to obtain such third party information about you, and you have not completed an employment application authorizing us to do so, we will contact you and request your authorization to proceed. If you elect not to comply we reserve the right not to hire you.


Why We Collect and Use Your Personal Information

AMD Law collects and uses your personal information for the purpose of determining your qualifications for employment and reaching a hiring decision, as well as to comply with applicable laws and regulations, such as laws related to the evaluation of those seeking employment, or to defend ourselves in claims under such laws. We will also use relevant portions of your personal information to establish a basic employment record if you are hired as an employee of AMD Law. We do not collect or use the personal information you submit as a job applicant for any purposes other than for employment.

Information Disclosure

Access to your information will be restricted to those AMD Law staff and designated agents who have a need to know the specific information in order to carry out their responsibilities with regard to recruitment or adherence to the applicable laws of employment. Your information may also be disclosed to governmental entities in compliance with applicable law, such as to those agencies authorized to review and enforce equal opportunity laws. We do not disclose applicant information to job banks, or to other companies or external parties.

Your Access to Your Personal Information

Once you have established a Profile through this website, you will have online access to correct or update the information it contains. Once you have submitted your resume for a specific opening, you will not be able to update the information contained in that resume. A new resume may be submitted when applying for other positions.  This information also applies to the submission of online applications from our website.

Retention and Deletion of Your Personal Information

AMD Law retains your personal information only as long as is necessary for evaluation for employment, as well as to comply with applicable laws relating to the evaluation of those seeking employment. After this time, typically two years, your information is deleted.

Information Safeguards

AMD Law uses appropriate administrative, technical, personnel, and physical measures to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and unauthorized use or modification. In addition, we exercise special precautions in dealing with applicant personal data defined as sensitive by law.

Communications from AMD Law

AMD Law may contact you, using the contact information you have provided, for purposes of responding to your application for a particular job or jobs.

If you have questions or concerns about AMD Law’s policies and practices for handling applicant personal information received through this website, you may email AMD Law

From time to time AMD Law may revise this Applicant Privacy Policy. Should we do so, we will also change the date indicated below. We encourage you to check back at this website periodically, because applicants will be bound prospectively by the then-current version of the Applicant Privacy Policy.
