We collect a variety of information from visitors to our website, some of which can be confidential. This document explains the types of information we collect, how we collect it, and what we do with that information (among other things).
Like most website operators, Recstra collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Recstra’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to understand better how Recstra’s visitors use its website. The data collected will also help us troubleshoot problems, analyse our resources and improve our services. There is nothing in that kind of information that could enable anyone to identify who you are.
Recstra also collects potentially personal information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. Recstra only discloses logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personal information as described below.
In certain circumstances, we may be required or permitted by law, court or tribunal order to collect certain personal information about you.
Visitors to Recstra’s website choose to interact with Recstra in ways that require Recstra to gather personal information. The amount and type of information that Recstra gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. We collect personal information in several ways, including:
In each case, Recstra collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Recstra. Recstra does not disclose personal information other than as described below. Moreover, visitors can always refuse to supply personal information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities and we may not be able to provide our services or assistance to you or on your behalf.
Where relevant you consent to Recstra posting and using any photographs, content and personal information, you might upload on our website or have otherwise provided permission to publish on our site, blog, in our marketing collateral or social media channels. These may use to deliver our services, the marketing of our services or for our functions and activities.
We collect your personal information so that you may receive the benefit of our website and services.
Your personal information will also be used by us to enable more direct connectivity between Recstra Certified Recruiters™ and Clients, and between Recstra Certified Recruiters™ and members of the public, for the services.
Recstra may disclose your personal information to other entities or individuals to facilitate the purpose for which data was collected. Such entities and individuals include:
If you conduct any transaction that requires a payment by you, some of your details may be provided to a third-party payment processor to allow the transaction to be completed.
Specific information will be disclosed to Clients to allow them to determine which Recstra Certified Recruiters™ might be suitable. Contact details will only be shared between Clients and Recstra Certified Recruiters™ insofar as is necessary or appropriate to facilitate the Services that Recstra provides to Recstra Certified Recruiters™ and Clients.
If Recstra, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Recstra goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that are transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that any acquirer of Recstra may continue to use your personal information as outlined in this policy.
From time to time, we may use the personal information we collect from you to identify particular Recstra services that we believe may be of interest to you. We may then contact you to let you know about these services, new features and how they may benefit you, solicit your feedback, or keep you up to date with what’s going on with Recstra and our products.
Electronic marketing is where we use your personal information to send you marketing information by email, SMS, MMS or other electronic means we may do so with your express or implied consent. You may give us your express consent by, for example, ticking a box on an electronic or signing in paper form where we seek your permission to send you electronic or other marketing information. Consent may be implied from our existing business relationship or where you have a reasonable expectation of receiving electronic marketing communication.
Every directly addressed marketing contact sent or made by Recstra will include a means by which Clients may unsubscribe (or opt out) of receiving further marketing information. Additionally, you may instruct us at any time to remove any previous consent you provided to receive marketing communications from us. Requests must be sent to us via the channels provided under ‘Contact us’ below.
Recstra may also collect personal information from you if you apply for a job with and become employed or engaged by us. In these circumstances:
You may review, edit, correct or delete any personal information you submit to us at any time. You need to log into your account to do this.
You may access the personal information we otherwise hold about you. Access to your personal information may be denied on specific grounds including, for example, it is unlawful; it may have an unreasonable impact upon the privacy of other individuals, or your request is frivolous or vexatious. If we deny you access, we will provide our reason for doing so at the time of your request.
If you wish to access the personal information we hold about you or request correction of it, you should contact the Privacy Officer on the details below who will respond to your request within a reasonable period after the request is made.
