Privacy Policy.


1. Introduction

Welcome to the Finance Careers website or mobile application (“Site”). Finance Careers (Pty) Ltd (“Finance Careers”, “we”, “us”, and/or “our”) operates this Site, and its mobile application, to provide our users (“you” and “your”) with information about Finance Careers and its platform.

Finance Careers is used by professional candidates (“Candidates”) who wish to offer their development, engineering and other services (“Services”) and clients who need the Services (“Clients”). Candidates that have passed our screening process and are admitted to our network of professional Candidates (“Network”) are referred to as “Talent”. For purposes of this policy the term “Candidates” is broader in scope and includes both Talent and Candidates who are not Talent. The Personal Data we receive from Candidates and Clients and how we handle it differs, so we explain our data practices for Candidates and Clients in two distinct sections below. Navigate to the section that applies to you: CandidatesClients.



2. Scope

This Privacy Policy sets out how Finance Careers collects, retains, and uses information, including personal data (“Personal Data”) about Candidates, Clients, and other Site visitors and individuals, which include our vendors, partners, blog readers, and job applicants. The Privacy Policy also applies to users of Finance Careers software offerings such as our image sharing and editing tool, affiliated sites, and data that Finance Careers collects in-person, for instance, at business conferences and trade shows.



3. Candidates
3.1. Information We Collect


A. Information That You Provide To Us

When you apply as a Candidate on the Site, you are asking to be admitted to our Network. In order to admit you to the Network and match your qualifications with our Client’s needs, we need to perform a screening process, which evaluates your language skills, personality, domain-specific knowledge, competence and professionalism. We may also need to screen potential Candidates for specific technical skills, as required by our Clients. In this context, you will be asked to provide information about yourself, which includes:

·      your name

·      contact information

·      address

·      location

·      work experience

·      education

·      photo

·      identification

Our provider of background check services may collect additional data about you (including information about criminal convictions or offences) if and when we undertake vetting/background checks. If applicable to you, your consent to the collection of such additional data will be solicited at such time, pursuant to applicable laws.

When you participate in the community of Finance Careers’ experts on our Site or mobile application, we will collect the information that you elect to share in that context. We will use certain of your Personal Data to enable you to create a profile to be displayed within the Services; this profile is searchable and may be viewed by Clients seeking Candidates. Our mobile application is also accessible by members of our Talent network. The mobile application may collect location information in an effort to tailor the user experience.

Once you are admitted to the Network and you are matched with a Client, we will receive from our Clients information regarding the performance of your services to that Client, as necessary for maintaining standards of integrity and excellence in our Network.

In addition, Finance Careers may record video and/or phone calls for quality assurance and training purposes.
