Privacy Policy

Effective 1st August 2022

Your privacy is extremely important to us. At Monroe Partners we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We are thoughtful about the personal information we ask you to provide and the personal information that we collect about you through the operation of our services.
  • We store personal information for only as long as we have a reason to keep it.
  • We aim for full transparency on how we gather, use, and share your personal information.

Below is our Privacy Policy, which incorporates and clarifies these principles.

Who We Are and What This Policy Covers

Monroe Partners is a specialist talent consultancy sourcing talent to Global Hedge funds. We value your privacy greatly and are committed to protecting your personal data.

This Privacy Policy outlines how we use and protect any information that you provide when using our website (monroe-partners.com) or when you contact us directly and can assure you that your data will only be used in accordance with this privacy policy.

Information We Collect

We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so — for example, to provide our Services, to communicate with you, or to make our Services better. We collect this information from three sources: if and when you provide information to us, automatically through operating our Services, and from outside sources.

Information You Provide to Us (Direct & Indirect Data)

Contact information:

  • When making direct contact with us or when visiting our site, you may voluntarily provide us with certain information. This may include your contact information, your CV, employment history etc. This information is all passed to us as a direct action by you. Your information will never be passed to a third party without mutual written or verbal consent.
  • Occasionally we might be passed your data by a third party as a recommendation for a particular role and only then would we use this information to contact you.
  • We use LinkedIn to contact potential candidates we feel may be suitable for a particular role.

Information We Collect Automatically

  • Log information: We collect information that web browsers, mobile devices, and servers typically make available, including the browser type, IP address, unique device identifiers, language preference, referring site, the date and time of access, operating system, and mobile network information. We collect log information when you use our Services.
  • Location information: We may determine the approximate location of your device from your IP address. We collect and use this information to, for example, calculate how many people visit our Services from certain geographic regions.
  • Information from cookies & other technologies: A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Pixel tags (also called web beacons) are small blocks of code placed on websites and emails. Monroe Partners uses cookies to help us identify and track visitors, usage, and access preferences for our Services. For more information about our use of cookies please see our Cookie Policy.

How and Why We Use Information

We use information about you for the purposes listed below:

  • To provide our Services. To ensure our services are delivered effectively we store your information on our database and use it to work with our select Global Hedge Funds.
  • To communicate with you. For example, by emailing you to ask for your feedback, share tips for getting the most out of our service, or keep you up to date on Monroe Partners.

If at any time you would prefer not to be contacted by us, please let us know by emailing info@monroe-partners.com

Sharing Information

We will never share or sell your information with third parties unless we are required to do so by law.

Protecting Your Information

We work very hard to protect your information against unauthorised access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so. We monitor our Services for potential vulnerabilities and attacks.
