Where do we collect personal data about you from?
Candidates: The following are the different sources we may collect personal data about you from:
- Directly from you: This is information you provide while searching for a new opportunity and/or during the different recruitment stages. It may include information that you provide via emails, phone conversations, face to face meetings and website submissions.

We use the following public sources:

Where we collect your information through publicly available sources as set out above, we may do this with the aid of software programs. These programs are given parameters on the requirements of a role and search through publicly available sources to find such candidates. These programs are designed to only output information on candidates that meet the search criteria. The parameters of these programs are restricted to only searching for candidate information such as name, job role, key skills and current/previous employers from public sites where there is a reasonable expectation that such information may be collected and further processed by job recruiters for the purpose of sourcing candidates for different job roles.
Employees, Workers and Contractors: We collect personal information through the application and recruitment process, either directly from candidates or sometimes from an employment agency or background check provider. We may sometimes collect additional information from third parties including former employers or other background check agencies.
