The information you provide on the applicationÊform will be used to process and administer your membership of XBHR. Your name, address and contact details will be included in the XBHR members' directory accessible by members of XBHR via the XBHR website. As a result, you may receive emails from (and will be able to send emails to) other members on relevant cross-border human resource matters, either individually or as part of a group or subgroup mailing. Rules apply to all members using the member directory and mailout facilities and access may be withdrawn if abused.

Occasionally we may notify you about important changes to the site and new information or services which we think you may find valuable as a cross-border HR professional.
