Information we Share

We share the information that we collect from you or from third party sources with recruiters, educators and service providers.

Recruiters may use your information to contact you directly.  Additionally, when you apply for a job with a company through the Site, the information supplied by you or shared through Australian FinTech Jobs products and services may become part of such company’s database.  Similarly, if your Australian FinTech Jobs resume or your Profile is downloaded by a recruiter, your information may become a part of their database.  In these instances, the use of such information by the recruiter will be subject to the privacy policy of that company, and we are not responsible for that company’s use of your information.

Where you have provided Personal Information on a Site that is “hosted” or “co-branded” by another company then that information will be made available to both Australian FinTech Jobs and the hosting/co-branding company.  Australian FinTech Jobs is not responsible for what the hosting/co-branding company, or any third party with whom you may share your Personal Information, subsequently does with your information.  You should review the privacy policy of the hosting/co-branding company to ensure that you are comfortable with how it intends to use and disclose your information.
All users should be aware that when they choose to display or distribute Personal Information (such as their email address or other contact information on a public resume) via the Site or any other distribution method, that information can be collected and used by others. This may result in unsolicited messages from third parties.

We also may share Personal Information with our service providers who help us in the delivery of our own products and services to you. These service providers may only use or disclose the information as necessary to perform services on our behalf or as otherwise required by law.

Australian FinTech Jobs also may disclose specific user information when we determine, in good faith, that such disclosure is necessary to comply with the law, to cooperate with or seek assistance from law enforcement, to prevent a crime or protect national security, or to protect the interests or safety of Australian FinTech Jobs or other users of the Site.

In addition, Personal Information we have collected may be passed on to a third party in the event of a transfer of ownership or assets or a bankruptcy or other corporate reorganisation of Australian FinTech Jobs.

Analytics

We may combine certain non-personally identifiable Aggregate Data, or otherwise anonymised or de-identified data about our users and use such data to prepare reports for our users (typically recruiters or educators).  “Aggregate Data” is the demographic information (such as postcode, age, gender, race or ethnicity) and employment information (such as occupation, education and experience) of many individuals that is combined together.  Aggregate Data is used to analyse the characteristics of various populations and does not identify any specific individuals.  We may also use and share anonymised or de-identified data to track trends in the employment market as well as use of our products and services.  Some Aggregate Data analytics reports can be used to better understand individual Profiles.

We also use third party analytics services to help better understand the use of our sites, which is further described in the Cookies section below.

Privacy Options for Resume Database

Posting your resume on the Site puts you in front of thousands of recruiters and FinTech companies with open positions each day.  When you post your resume, we automatically create a registration for you using the email address and password that you supply.  When you return to the Site in the future you will use that same email address and password to access and edit your existing resume.
We attempt to limit access to our searchable databases to legitimate users, but cannot guarantee that other parties will not gain access to these searchable databases.  While we limit access and use of information from our products and services in our Terms and Conditions, we cannot control the use of information by third parties once they obtain that information from our products and services or other publicly available sources.  Accordingly, you should not put information you would not want made public in your resume or to a public website.

Review, Update or Delete your Account Information or Profile 

You may access, update and amend Personal Information included in your online Australian FinTech Jobs account at any time by logging into your My Account profile and making the necessary changes.  Should you wish to delete your account from our system please send an email to [email protected] with the subject line delete my profile. In the email provide the email and username you used to setup your account and we will delete your account within 2 business days.

Please be advised that, even in the event of a successful account or Profile deletion, recruiters and others who have paid for access to our databases, as well as parties who have otherwise gained access to our databases may have retained a copy of your resume or Profile information in their own files or databases.  Additionally, if you have applied to a job at a particular company in the past, that company will still have access to your resume.  We cannot control the retention, use or privacy of resumes or Profiles that have been downloaded by third parties, and, you will not be able to delete data held by third parties that already have accessed and downloaded your Profile information or resume.  In addition, we will retain anonymous Aggregate Data for uses described in this privacy policy.

Please allow up to thirty days to process your account or Profile deletion request.

A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor‘s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser.

Australian FinTech Jobs uses cookies and other similar technologies for the convenience of our users.  Cookies enable us to serve secure pages to our users without asking them to sign in repeatedly.  Australian FinTech Jobs also uses cookies to store non-personally identifying information about you such as past jobs viewed and job searches conducted by your computer in a cookie that it places on your computer.  We do this in order to present you with job recommendations based on your interests as expressed previously through your searches.  Lastly, Australian FinTech Jobs uses cookies to ensure the proper functioning and efficiency of our Site.  Most Internet browsers enable you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored.  Please be aware, however, that some Australian FinTech Jobs features or services may not function properly without cookies.

Australian FinTech Jobs permits third party cookies on its Site.  For example, third party tools located on the Site, including those that allow for social media sharing, may use cookies to remember user preference settings.  Australian FinTech Jobs also uses web analytics services provided by third parties, which use cookies to collect non-personal information about details of our users’ visits to the Site (including IP addresses) and the resources they access on the Site.  These third party web analytics services provide us with reports based on this information in order to help us understand how visitors engage with the Site.

We use third-party advertising companies who may place or access cookies on your computer hard drive to distinguish your web browser uniquely and to keep track of information relating to serving ads on your web browser, such as the type of ads shown and the webs pages on which the ads appeared.

These companies may use information about your visits to these Site and to other sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you on our Site or on other, third party, sites.  We also may give third party advertisers the ability to tailor their advertisements on our Site using demographic and preference information we provide to them in aggregate form.  This information does not identify you individually.
These companies operate under their own privacy policies and Australian FinTech Jobs encourages you to be aware of the privacy policies of such companies.

Australian FinTech Jobs does not have control over or access to any information contained in the cookies that are set on your computer by third party advertisers.
In addition, some of the recruiters that use our Site may place cookies on your computer through their job postings and may use such cookies to distinguish your web browser uniquely.  Often, recruiters use such information to track the effectiveness of their job postings by measuring how many users who view their postings later became job applicants.
Links to other Websites

Our Site may contain links to other sites for your convenience and information.  These sites may be operated by companies not owned by Australian FinTech Jobs.  These other sites or linked third-party sites may have their own privacy notices, which you should review if you visit those sites.  We are not responsible for the content of any sites not owned by Australian FinTech Jobs, any use of those sites, or those sites’ privacy practices.

Some Important Tips to use when dealing with Recruiters 

  • You should use your own careful judgment about whether and what information to provide to recruiters.
  • DO NOT PUT SENSITIVE INFORMATION, SUCH AS YOUR TAX FILE NUMBER, ON YOUR RESUME.
  • If restricted or prohibited by the local laws in the jurisdiction where you reside, do not provide Australian FinTech Jobs, or otherwise include in your resumes or Profiles other sensitive information that reveals racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, union memberships, health or sex life, genetic or biometric data, the commission of criminal offences or proceedings or unlawful or objectionable conduct and associated penalties or fines.
  • The Australian FinTech Jobs website is open to the public, and we cannot guarantee that all users of our services have a legitimate need to the information they seek.
  • Do not provide your Tax File Number, passport number or any state, territory or other local identification number to any third party via online application.  Identity thieves may attempt to trick you into providing sensitive information.  Do not provide any non-work related personal information (i.e., your Tax File Number or any other state or national identification number, eye colour, marital status, etc.) over the phone or online.
  • Job seekers should never provide credit card or bank numbers or engage in a monetary transaction of any sort.
  • Be cautious when dealing with contacts outside of your own country.
