How we use this information
We use this data primarily to deliver a better, more relevant jobseeker and employer experience, and for the following purposes:
- To fulfil our contractual obligations to our clients who are advertising their job vacancies through our services (i.e. share job application details and the application CV)
- To personalise your job search experience on the MeetYourBarista website through on-site job recommendations, site banners and through our emails.
- To send you marketing communications in line with your marketing preference data, including newsletters and job alerts by email.
- To respond to your questions, provide you services you select, send you updates about services offered by MeetYourBarista and send you email messages including about Site maintenance or updates.
When you create or upload a CV, we will make your personal information available to Recruitment Agencies and/or Companies. We collect profile and CV data to save you time when applying for jobs, to tailor the types of jobs we might send in email marketing campaigns (if you have opted to receive them) and so that recruiters and employers who have been granted access to our CV database are able to contact you for relevant jobs.
If you submit a job application on our site we will disclose your information to the advertiser of the job. Advertisers are either Recruitment Agencies or Companies. Recruiters and Advertisers sign MeetYourBarista’s Terms and Conditions of Business agreeing to process your personal information lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner following data protection law.
We may share your personal information on to a third-party service/software provider that MeetYourBarista use to provide you with services you have requested. Any third-party that we share your information with are obligated to keep your details securely and to only use them to fulfil the service they provide you on our behalf.
We may disclose your personal information with a third-party to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation or court order, or if we enter into a joint venture with or is sold to or merged with another business entity.
When you post a job on our website we may in turn distribute the listing to multiple job boards to provide more publicity.
We will not sell or distribute any of the information you provide to us without your consent. We will not pass your information to third-parties to enable them to contact you themselves about products and services they offer.
Information submitted with the Contact Us form is stored by us so that we can respond to the sender’s inquiry. The CV contact form allows prospective employers to contact jobseekers who have posted their CV/Resume on our website. The information contained in this form (including Name, Email and Message) is sent to the email address associated with this CV/Resume. We do not store the information contained within this form, and we don’t reveal the email address of the recipient to the sender.
Embedded content from other websites
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
Third Party Credit Card Processing
MeetYourBarista provides you with the ability to pay for our services using a credit card through a third party payment processing service provider. Please note that our service provider – not MeetYourBarista – collects and processes your credit card information.

Your information may be accessed by our staff working within and outside the UK and third-party companies that we may use to provide part of our services and who may be located outside of the European Economic Area. Both our staff and third-parties are obligated to keep your information safe and private. If you submit a job application for a job on our site that is located outside of the EEA we will disclose your information to the advertiser of the job. This could be a job in USA, Australia, Canada etc. Advertisers are either Recruitment Agencies or Companies. Advertisers sign MeetYourBarista’s Terms and Conditions of Business agreeing to process your personal information lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner following applicable data protection law.
