Your personal information is collected as a result of you submitting your personal information to us.
Personal information is held by us electronically and may, on occasion, be held by us in hard copy if we require to print information for administrative purposes.
We take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is safe and secure from unauthorised use and disclosure whether such information is stored electronically or in hard copy.
For what purposes do we collect, hold, use and disclose your personal information?
We collect, hold, use and disclose personal information obtained through our recruitment on-boarding platform to provide a range of recruitment related services for our Candidates and Clients and to comply with our legal obligations.
The purpose of collecting personal information is to allow Clients to manage the recruitment process and on-board suitable Candidates for employment with the Client.
Protecting your information
We take commercially reasonable steps to protect the information we collect from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Please understand, however, that no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases or mail systems, nor can we guarantee that information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to and from us over the internet. In particular, email may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email. If we or any of our affiliated companies are acquired, we expect that the collected information would be transferred along with the other business assets. To the extent permitted by law, we may also disclose the information that we collect when required by law, court order, or other government or law enforcement authority or regulatory agency; or whenever we believe that disclosing such information is necessary or advisable, for example, to protect our rights, property, or safety, or those of others.
Can I refuse to give Praxis my personal information (including sensitive information)?
You can refuse to provide us with your personal (including sensitive) information. However, if you refuse to provide us with this information, we may not be able to provide our services to you. For example, if you are Candidate, a Client may not be able to consider your application for work.
Do we disclose your personal information to others?
If you are a Candidate, by submitting your personal information to us, you consent to us disclosing your personal information to:
If you are a Referee we may disclose your personal information to our Clients or potential Clients. We may also be required to provide some of your personal information to the Candidate that you provide a reference for.
However, we understand that personal information including your opinions about a Candidate is often provided on a confidential basis by you as a Referee and we will endeavour to only provide information that will not breach this confidentiality.
If you are a Client we may disclose your personal information including your opinions of a Candidate by way of feedback to Candidates if requested by the Candidate. We may also disclose your company or organisation’s contact details for Candidates to request feedback directly from you.
There may be times when we need to disclose your personal information to third parties for the purpose of allowing us to carry out the activities listed above.
We may disclose your personal information if we are required or authorised to do so by law.
How do I access, update or correct the personal information held by us about me?
You can request to access the personal information we hold about you by contacting our Privacy Officer.
We will not charge you for making the request. However, we may charge you for our time to answer your request. We will advise you in advance if there are to be any charges associated with complying with your request.
We will respond to your request in a reasonable time frame (usually not more than 30 days). When you request access we may need further information from you to verify your identity.
There are a number of reasons we may be unable to give you access to your information. If we are not able to provide access to your information we will provide you with our written reasons.
Importantly, if you are a Candidate, information provided by Referees or from Clients about you is often given on a confidential basis. Accordingly, disclosing the opinions given by a Client or Referee is likely to have an unreasonable impact on the privacy of those individuals. When determining whether to provide access to such information we will consider the nature of the personal information about the other individuals and the reasonable expectation of those other individuals.
We may also refuse access to personal information if to do so would reveal evaluative information generated by us in connection with a commercially sensitive decision making process.
If you believe any of the personal information that we hold about you is incorrect you can ask us to correct it.
If asked to correct your personal information we will take reasonable steps to correct the information to ensure that it is accurate, up to date, relevant and not misleading. If we refuse to correct your personal information we will give you written reasons.
