This section describes what information is collected by EasyWeb from Candidates, and how that information is used by EasyWeb.

When you register with us (whether via the Website or otherwise), we collect and store certain pieces of Personal Data and other information relating to you, including:

  • Full name
  • Contact details, including email address
  • Work history, education, skills, experience, and any other information included in your CV

Where, how and for how long we store your Personal Data

The information that we collect from you (including any Personal Data) may be transferred to, and stored at, various destinations. This will not include destinations outside the European Economic Area (EEA). It may be processed by staff operating at various locations outside the EEA who work for us, or for one of our website development, website penetration testing (also known as “ethical hacking”), hosting, connectivity or telecommunications service providers. By providing us with your information (including Personal Data), you agree to this transfer, storing and processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your Personal Data, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to our Website; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

We will store your Personal Data for no more than one year after you stop actively using your Account, at which time your Personal Data will be irretrievably deleted.

  • Where you are applying for a job with a prospective employer, to contact you to ask whether you want to provide that prospective employer with information that you provided in connection with a previous job application.
  • To communicate with you on matters relating to your Account or to the Website, or to send you promotional emails about new products, special offers or other information that we think may be of interest. You may request that we stop using your information for direct marketing purposes at any time and without giving any reason.
  • To help us improve the Website.
  • To help understanding recruitment behaviour and improving processes. This involves us combining your anonymised information with anonymised information provided by other Candidates.

What information we share with third parties

We may invite you to share your Personal Data and other information in your Account with third parties (e.g. other recruitment companies), but we will always ask your permission before doing so and explicitly state who the third parties are. If you decide that you want to share your Account Data with a third party, then you understand that the use of your Account Data by that third party will be outside the control and responsibility of EasyWeb and, if applicable, subject to the privacy policy of that third party.

We may disclose your Personal Data to any member of our group of companies.

  • If EasyWeb or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case Personal Data held by us will be one of the transferred assets.
  • If we are under a duty to disclose or share your Personal Data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce our contractual rights; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of EasyWeb, our stakeholders, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

Except as set out above, we do not share your Personal Data with any third parties.
