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 communicate with you about your job search, update you on the latest vacancies, and send any other necessary information relating to usage of our site (e.g. changes to our privacy policy).
  • 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.

Contact forms

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

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely.
