Lateral Link collects certain personally identifying information regarding a user to administer its placement services and related legal search consulting activities. Lateral Link requires different information at different stages of the placement process. First, in order to initially register as a user and establish an account, Lateral Link requires basic contact information and other placement related preference descriptions. Second, in order for a Candidate to submit information to an Employer (i.e., resume and/or transcripts), or an Employer to reach out to a Candidate (i.e., job postings), Lateral Link requires additional information.
