Tallgrass uses online platforms like LinkedIn.com and other public web-based job distribution platforms to advertise job openings broadly, share information about Tallgrass, learn about, and communicate with potential job applicants. During the recruitment process, Tallgrass will store and process comprehensive data about job applicants that the job applicants have made available publicly on sites such as LinkedIn and Twitter, and privately, by receiving resumés, CVs, cover letters, and other materials through web-based submission portals, or by communications made by candidates and recruits directly to Tallgrass hiring managers and recruiting personnel. Because the data submitted by candidates may vary from job to job and candidate to candidate, it is not possible to provide an exhaustive list of all data categories Tallgrass may obtain from any candidate.
The following list is provided to suggest the categories of data Tallgrass routinely processes from job candidates:
For certain jobs, there may be additional personal information gathered. Additionally, certain candidates may voluntarily provide additional information about themselves, not listed above.
