The benefits of data sharing

Why do you need my data anyway?

Data sharing improves our services to you, it also allows our sites to provide personalised and improved content, performance, features and services.

For example, our sites may use and share your previous search or browsing history (e.g. the opportunities you click on) and your resume or profile information to determine relevant search results and job alerts. Data sharing may also help provide career insights such as company reviews, opportunity listing salary data, interview tips and more.

This sharing also helps improve data analysis, testing, research and service improvement across our sites.

Data sharing facilitates better security

Sharing data allows our site to better protect our users. In particular it allows affiliated sites to improve user security and internal operations. It also facilitates troubleshooting and detection and prevention of fraud and spam.

Site activity recording

What we do with the data

We process your activity on the affiliated site to help us better understand how you use them. This helps us improve and inform the services we offer. All of which allows us to help you find opportunities.

It’s important to note that our sites can’t work as intended without this data collection and sharing. This includes processing, collecting, analysing, storing and sharing your data amongst each other or with third party service providers, including in real-time. Data collected can include any and all interactions and communications you have on our site. It may also include without limitation the areas of the affiliated sites you visit and where you click, scroll, hover, mouseover or otherwise interact with our sites. It may also include when and for how long each activity occurs.

Because it’s critical to how our site operates, if you do not want your actions to be collected, processed, or analysed, you will need to cease using our site.
