Privacy Policy (updated 1st January 2017)

This privacy policy applies only to this website (the “Site”). The Site is owned and operated by C21 Media Ltd.

At C21Jobs we make every effort to comply with our obligations under the Data Protection Act 1998. Additionally, we understand the importance of maintaining the confidentiality of your CV and other information stored about you while using the site.

By using the site you consent to the collection and use of information in accordance with this privacy policy. You can remove any of the information that C21Jobs stores about you, at any time, by logging in to your account and choosing to close the account.

Collection of Personal Information
We collect personal information from you (for example, name, address, telephone number, email address, photo etc) when you make an application, complete registration forms, submit comments to the Site, participate in message boards, blogs or any other user generated content facilities or send emails to us. We may also extract relevant personal information from other data that you provide, for example, from your CV. Please do not submit such personal information to us if you do not wish us to collect it.

Registration Details
Contact and other details you supply as part of the registration process are stored by us and used to provide you with the information you have requested. Please note that although we require customers who use our services, such as employers seeking to recruit staff, to agree to use the information made available solely for recruitment-related purposes, we do not control their use of any information that they have access to as part of receiving our services.

Profile and CV Information
When you complete your totaljobs profile, including your CV, it can be made available for searching and viewing over the Internet and downloading by any direct recruiter, employment consultant or other person or organisation who requests CVs matching your profile to be sent to them. C21Jobs does not verify the identity or the nature of the business of such organisations.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Your current employer may be a customer of C21Jobs, or a client of one of our customers. We cannot restrict the customers who access profiles on our database and cannot be held responsible for any eventuality.

C21Jobs will also use the aggregate data to identify employment trends across different industries, such as salary averages. This information will not be capable of being linked to any personally identifying information about users.

Some of our customers may be located in countries outside the European Economic Area.

If you choose to create a profile and upload a CV to our database, we rely on you to ensure that your details are kept up to date. You should update your CV at least every six months, particularly if your contact details have changed.

Please note that we reserve the right to remove from our database, CVs which include any content that we consider to be illegal or offensive.

IP Address Information
Like many websites, we routinely capture your IP address information to determine your location. An IP address, or 'internet protocol address', is a unique identifying number given to every device connected to the internet. Like a car number/license plate, an IP address is a special serial number used for identification. This helps us work out whether you are visiting the site from within the UK, EU or rest of the world, and means we can show you content that's specific to your location and ask the right questions about your eligibility to work in the UK or EU should you wish to apply for a job.

Statistical Information
We provide aggregate statistical information about site visitors and users to recruiters (such as the number of CVs on the database, or the number of visitors to the site) and for other lawful purposes. We provide this information to customers, advertisers, suppliers and other reputable third parties. This will not include any information that enables them to identify individuals.

Push Notifications
If you use the C21Jobs website, you may also consent to push notifications, text messages, alerts, emails or other types of messages directly sent to you outside or inside your mobile device or desktop browser. If you declare your consent to receive such messages a device token will be generated, which will be associated with your device.

Sharing Your Information
Personal data which you supply to us may be transferred to third party service providers to be stored or processed on our behalf, including third parties located outside of the European Economic Area in countries where there may be a lower legal level of data protection. However, we will always endeavour to handle your information in accordance with this privacy policy, wherever it is processed.

Security
We take the security of your personal information very seriously and have appropriate technical and organisational measures in place. The site is protected against unauthorised access using the latest security devices and 'firewalls'.
