And who controls what HiQ can say about you to your own Company ? And if they supply erroneous data which gets you fired, what can you do about it ? .... Absolutely nothing!

And who controls what HiQ can say about you to your own Company ? And if they supply erroneous data which gets you fired, what can you do about it ? .... Absolutely nothing!

If they provide erroneous data to your employer that gets you fired, you certainly can do something.

You can sue for libel, and win a great deal of money.

Strange. Under EU right to be forgotten laws publicly available information can be removed upon request.

@garypen - you will first have to prove what information HiQ gave, directly led to your dismissal - which is going to be very difficult, if not financially impossible for the individual.

Different countries have different Personal Privacy Laws, and this is where HiQ possibly could fall afoul - to Linkedin we give permission of data retention for our personal details, but not to HiQ.
