2.4 Storage of Your Information
We store your Personal Data until it is no longer necessary to provide our services or until you ask us to delete your Personal Data.

As another example, after an application has been delivered to an Employer, we may retain a copy of that application for a limited time and then delete the copy. We are also required to retain certain information in order to comply with local laws.

We collect and process your Personal Data on the basis of different legal grounds, depending on the nature of the Personal Data being provided and the type of processing involved.
– Performance of a Contract
Some of the Personal Data processed by us is performed on the basis that it is necessary for the performance of our agreement with you, or in order to take steps at the request of the user prior to entering such an agreement. An example of this would be where we send a Job Seeker’s application to an Employer.
– Legitimate Interest
A second ground relied upon by us for other types of processing of your Personal Data is that it is necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests pursued by us or an Employer. Examples of such legitimate interests will include where we send you marketing about our products and services, where we believe you have a reasonable expectation that we will perform a particular type of processing on your behalf, where such processing is strictly necessary for fraud detection and prevention, or where we share your Personal Data with affiliates as detailed in section 4.14 below. We will only rely on such a ground where an assessment has been performed balancing the interests and rights involved and the necessity of the processing in order to provide our services, products and features to you.
– Compliance with a Legal Obligation
A third ground relied upon for certain types of processing is that it is necessary in order to allow us to comply with a legal obligation. An example of this would be where we are required to retain business records for fixed periods of time in order to comply with local legal requirements.
3.1 Where a Job Seeker Wants to Close a Job Seeker Account
When a Job Seeker closes an account, the Job Seeker will no longer have access to any of the data we make available under that account, including but not limited to, search history, job search preferences, saved jobs, jobs the Job Seeker has applied to, Job Alerts, profile, and any other data associated with the account. If the Job Seeker uses the same email address to set up a new account, this data from a previous account will not become available to the Job Seeker again. Please also note that closing your Job Seeker account may result in you losing access to some of our products and the ability to utilize the “log in with” feature found on certain third-party sites.
We reserve the right to keep any materials in a closed account as necessary to preserve and protect its rights to the extent permitted by law (for example, to preserve records of a dispute) or to comply with its obligations under local law (for example, if requested to retain by law enforcement). A closed account does not mean that all of the data is expunged from our systems, although it will not be readily available under the Job Seeker’s original account. When the Job Seeker presses the close account button on the dashboard, we will begin to process that instruction within 24 hours and will have completed the operation within 40 days.

We use this information to help you find a job. Our candidate search tool allows Employers to find great candidates by searching public profiles. By posting a public profile, you authorize us to make your entire profile available to any user who searches for you on our Sites, to associate your desired job preferences with your public profile and share this information with Employers who search for profiles on our Sites, and to allow employers to see if you were recently active on the Sites, your readiness to work, and your available contact methods.

If you do not wish your information to be transferred in this way you should not use the Sites.
– Improved Services
Data sharing with affiliates provides Job Seekers with more personalized and improved content, performance, features and services. For example, we and our affiliates use your previous search and browsing history (e.g., the jobs you click on), IP address, or profile information, to determine relevant search results, Job Alerts, display and moderate career insights, such as company reviews, Job Listing salary data, interview tips and more. Such sharing is also performed to facilitate improved data analysis, testing, research, and service improvement.
This sharing also allows Employers to have better insight into the performance of their Job Listings. For example, we may share data related to user clicks on their Job Listings which in turn allows Employers to understand the extent to which they are attracting candidates. By providing Employers with the information, they need to better utilize our platform, they can provide stronger Job Listings.
– More Employers, More Job Listings and More Job Seekers
Such data sharing allows Job Seekers to access an even broader database of Job Listings and Employers, and for Employers to access more Job Seekers. For example, this allows us to recommend jobs or Employers on our Sites or on websites of our affiliates. It also facilitates applications and the display of Job Listings from the Sites to affiliates’ websites and vice versa.
For example, GetTradeJobs.com and its affiliates recommend a Job Seeker to an Employer, and a Job Listing to a Job Seeker. This applies to Job Seekers, Employers and Job Listings on GetTradeJobs.com and any of its affiliates. GetTradeJobs.com and its affiliates also share Employer data (such as account information and behavioral data) to provide a better experience to those Employers.
– Better Security for Users
Such data sharing allows us and our affiliates to process your Personal Data for the purpose of improving user security and internal operations, troubleshooting, and detecting and preventing fraud and spam.
