Privacy Policy

Data Protection and Privacy Policy

BIPO’s online service is committed to protecting the privacy of our users. We want to provide a safe and secure user experience. We will ensure that the information you submit to us through our website (The BIPO Site) remains private, and is only used for the purposes set out in this policy.

How We Use Collected Information

Your personal details, including your name, e-mail address and resume, are held and used by us for the following purposes:

  • For matching your coded details with job vacancies, to assist us in finding you the position that most suits you;
  • For keeping you informed of BIPO services, news and wider developments in your chosen field;
  • For tailoring the version of our website you see when you log on to make it relevant for you; and/or
  • For compiling salary and other surveys of our candidates.

 

Disclosures of Your Information

We will share your information within the BIPO group of companies where necessary.

It is possible that BIPO could merge or be acquired by another business. If this happens, we may share the information that relates to you with the new owners of the business and their advisers. You will be notified of such an event.

Your resume and related information will be sent to prospective employers but only when your consent is given.

We may also release information relating to you to regulatory or law enforcement authorities, if required to do so. We also reserve the right to disclose the information we have collected about you to our professional advisors and to other persons to the extent that BIPO contracts out any aspect of the operation of its recruitment agency services. These third parties will be acting under similar undertakings of confidentiality as BIPO.

Newsletter

To subscribe to our Newsletter, you will be required to provide your e-mail address, which will be used to keep you informed, by e-mail, of the latest jobs in your nominated industry and/or industry news via Newsletter.

Should you decide that you no longer wish to receive this information, unsubscribed links are provided in every job alert email that you receive.

Newsletter can also be received via RSS feeds without having to provide your e-mail address.

Resume

We give you the option of submitting your resume via this website. You can do this either to apply for a specific advertised job or for consideration by our recruitment consultants for positions as they come up. Although your resume will be stored online, it will only be accessible by BIPO recruitment consultants. Your resume will also be e-mailed directly to our recruitment consultants who review your details and enter them onto our central in-house database.

You can update your resume at any time, simply by following the same procedure to submit a new resume. Your old resume will automatically be replaced.

Aggregate Information about BIPO Online Visitors

We only use such data in the aggregate form. This information helps us determine what is most beneficial for our users and how we can continually improve our online services to create a better overall experience for our users. We also publish some of this information on the BIPO websites worldwide.
