My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: California or New Jersey (Head office)
I met a company at a career fair and gave them a hard copy. They went and created a profile of mine in their system and sent me the password. I never logged in with the password. I never signed a consent form or any other forms waiving my rights. They just took the hardcopy of my resume and did whatever they wanted to do with it. It was just a telephone interview. I was mislead of a job and they also had interview email copied to apparently a client company of theirs. One possibility is if the employer interferes with my ability to earn a living.
I was disappointed with their i/v process. So I asked them to delete me from their system and to those they shared it with.
They tell me that they are required by US law to maintain this information for a period of two years! I never worked there. Just had one phone call and they stopped responding to me. I have reasons to suspect them and I want my info removed fully.
What are my rights? Who are the agencies that I can take it up with?
