How we use your personal data

Lawful basis

We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to do so. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:

Where you have consented before the processing.

Consent means processing your personal data where you have signified your agreement by a statement or clear opt-in to processing for a specific purpose. Consent will only be valid if it is a freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of what you want. You can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us.

Where we need to perform a contract that we are about to enter or have entered with you, including our T&Cs.

Performance of contract means processing your data where it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request before entering into such a contract. This includes complying with our T&Cs.

Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights to not override those interests.

Legitimate interest means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/product and the best and most secure experience. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). You can obtain further information about how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on you in respect of specific activities by contacting us.

Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.

Complying with a legal obligation means processing your personal data where it is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation that we are subject to.

We will only send you direct marketing communications by e-mail, SMS, or the App if we have your consent. You have the right to withdraw that consent at any time by contacting us.

We will not sure your personal data with any third party for marketing purposes.

Disclosures of your personal data

When you consent to providing us with your personal data, we will also ask you for your consent to share your personal data with our job posters. Our job posters will only see your Profile Data if you have applied for a job that they have posted. If you communicate with a job poster through our App or our site then you may also disclose Communication Data that relates only to that job. If you accept a job posting, then our job posters may also receive Identity and Contact Data about you. Our job posters may only use your personal data for the purposes of our Services.

We may also disclose your personal data to third parties to whom we may choose to sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or our assets. Alternatively, we may seek to acquire other businesses or merge with them. If a change happens to our business, then the new owners may use your personal data in the same way as set out in this privacy policy.

International transfers

Many of our third party partners, such as Stripe and Mailchimp, are based outside of the European Economic Area (the "EEA"), so their processing of your personal data may involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.

Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

- We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the United Kingdom or the European Commission. For further details, see European Commission: Adequacy of the protection of personal data in non-EU countries .

- Where we use providers based in the United States of America, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield program which requires US companies to provide similar levels of protection to personal data as within the United Kingdom and the European Union. For further details, see European Commission: EU-US Privacy Shield .

- Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the ICO or the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe. For further details, see European Commission: Model contracts for the transfer of personal data to third countries .

Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA

We currently have three third party partners located within the United States of America. Each of these organisations is registered with the EU-US Privacy Shield program that enables the transfer and protection of your personal data in accordance with certain rules and guidelines approved by the European Commission. You can find out more about each of these organisations' certification with Privacy Shield below:

Data security and storage

Other than the information collected or received from Google, Stripe, or Mailchimp, we endeavour to store all personal data within the United Kingdom and the European Union. The personal data we receive from you is stored and hosted by Amazon on its Amazon Web Services/AWS platform. The majority of personal data is stored within AWS datacentres within the United Kingdom, however, we may store e-mail information at the AWS datacentres in Ireland, see Amazon Web Services compliance program - which includes ISO 27001 ISO 27018, and Cyber Essentials Plus .

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions through our App and our site are carried out by our chosen third party payment provider Stripe and will be encrypted using industry standard technologies such as Transport Layer Security (TLS) in accordance with Stripe's Security Policy .

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password that enables you to access our App or certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share this password with anyone.

Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent your personal data from being accidently lost, used, or accessed in an unauthorised say. We use a number of industry standard security features such as encryption-at-rest and encryption-in-transit to protect your personal data.

We may also collect and store personal data on your Device using application data caches and browser web storage (including HTML5) and other similar caching technologies.

Certain Services include communication features such as chat/messaging. Please ensure when using these features that you do not submit any personal data that you do not want to be seen, collected, or used by other users, such as job posters. Our platform is designed to enable job posters to see the relevant Profile, Contact, Identity, and Communication Data about you without requiring you to submit further information on your own.

If you have been asked by anyone to provide any personal data about you, please get in touch with us as soon as possible.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breaches and will notify you and any applicable regulator when we are legally required to do so.

Due to the nature of our App and our Services we have to keep basic information about you, including Contact Data and Identity Data for a period of five (5) years after you cease being a user of our Services and our App. Feel free to get in touch with us if you would like more information about why we retain your personal data for this period of time. But in short, we need to ensure that the users of our App and our Services are legally allowed to work within the United Kingdom, are valid and current users of approved educational institutions, and to assist in protecting the health and safety of our users.

In the event that you do not use our App or our Services for a period of more than [twelve (12) months] we will suspend and limit access to your account. After a further period of [four (4) years] we will treat the account as expired and your personal data may be deleted.

In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your personal data, please the section 'Your legal rights' below for further information.

Your legal rights

Under certain circumstances you have the following rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data.

You have the right to:

Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it. Data subject access requests must be in writing. Please see our contact details at the top of this page if you wish to submit a request.

Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully, or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:

o If you want us to establish the data's accuracy;

o Where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it;

o Where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or

o You have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

You also have the right to ask us not to continue to process your personal data for marketing purposes.

You can exercise any of these rights at any time by contacting us at 137 Garthdee Road, AB10 7AT or
