If your application for employment is withdrawn or unsuccessful, we will retain your information for a period of time after your application. We retain this information for various reasons, including to consider you for other potential jobs, to help us better understand and improve our recruiting processes, and in case we face a legal challenge to our recruitment processes.

If you would like to access, correct, or request deletion of your information, please contact privacy@homeaware.com.  We will do our best to comply with your request, although we may retain some information if required by law or as necessary to protect ourselves from legal claims.
