Discovered is committed to protecting your privacy and ascribes to the national privacy principles under the Privacy Act.
Collection of information
The personal details we will collect from your application includes information such as your name, email address, telephone number, education, employment history, skills as well as your CV. This list, however, is not conclusive and is open to change. For example, in the course of identifying suitable employment opportunities for you, we may make enquiries of referees whose names you have provided to us. This information will be added to that which we already hold on you. We will always provide a copy of all personal information we hold on you should you request it. If you request us to delete all information we hold on you, we will do so.
Use and disclosure of personal information
In some circumstances, we may collect personal and sensitive information. This personal and sensitive information will be used in connection with your actual or possible work opportunities as well as our assessment of your prospects. As mentioned above, this information could be in the form of results of inquiries that we might make of your former employers, work colleagues, professional associations or registration body, and additional information about you which you have provided to us.
Your personal information may be disclosed to potential and actual employers and clients of Discovered, other consultants within Discovered in connection with possible employment opportunities, and any person or body with a lawful entitlement to obtain information.
If you do not provide Discovered with the information we seek we may be limited in our ability to locate suitable employment for you.
Your details will not be disclosed to any person, body or organization for any purpose other than the primary purpose of us holding your information, that being the securing of employment for you.
We may contact you by the email or other address which you provide to us in order to advise you as to the progress of your application, respond to a request for information or a product or service, seek your permission to pass on your CV for a potential placement or employment opportunity, provide you with updated information about our website, and provide you with information about our products and services which you may find of use.
Storage and security of your personal information
Discovered will endeavor to take all reasonable steps to keep secure any information which we hold about you, and to keep this information accurate and up to date. Your information is stored on secure servers that are protected in controlled facilities. We require our employees and data processors to respect the confidentiality of any personal information held by Discovered. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so we cannot give an absolute assurance that the information you provide to us will be secure at all times. Discovered will not be held responsible for events arising from unauthorized access to your personal information.
You can also play an important role in keeping your personal information secure, by maintaining the confidentiality of any password and accounts used on the Discovered website. Please notify us immediately if there is any unauthorized use of your account by any other internet user or any other breach of security.
