Privacy Policy

Effective Date: [4th April 2019]

This privacy notice provides a framework of understanding about the personal data that is collected by Get My First Job Ltd (“hereinafter called the Data Controller”), as required by law including the provisions of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Collection of your Personal Information

GetMyFirstJob collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, address or telephone number. GetMyFirstJob also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your postcode, age, gender, preferences, education and interests.

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by GetMyFirstJob. This information can include your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by GetMyFirstJob for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the GetMyFirstJob website.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through GetMyFirstJob public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: GetMyFirstJob does not read any of your private online communications.

GetMyFirstJob encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from GetMyFirstJob so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. GetMyFirstJob is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the GetMyFirstJob and GetMyFirstJob family of websites.

Use of your Personal Information

GetMyFirstJob collects and uses your personal information to operate the GetMyFirstJob website and deliver the services you have requested. GetMyFirstJob also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from GetMyFirstJob and its affiliates. GetMyFirstJob may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

GetMyFirstJob may sell, rent, license or lease its customer lists to third parties. GetMyFirstJob may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) may be transferred to the third party. In addition, GetMyFirstJob may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

GetMyFirstJob does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

GetMyFirstJob keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within GetMyFirstJob, in order to determine what GetMyFirstJob services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customised content and advertising within GetMyFirstJob to customers whose behaviour indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

GetMyFirstJob websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on GetMyFirstJob or the websites; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of GetMyFirstJob; and (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of GetMyFirstJob or the public. For these purposes GetMyFirstJob may send your personal information internationally, including to countries outside the European Economic Association. Other countries offer differing levels of protection for personal information, not all of which will be as high as the levels of protection offered in the United Kingdom.

Accessing Personal Information

You can contact GetMyFirstJob to ask whether it is keeping personal data about you by sending an e-mail to [email protected]. Upon request, GetMyFirstJob will provide you with a readable copy of data which it holds about you. GetMyFirstJob may charge a fee of £10.00 to cover its administration costs. If you ask GetMyFirstJob to delete, correct or amend that personal data it will do so within a reasonable time.

Use of Cookies

The GetMyFirstJob website uses “cookies” to help you personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise GetMyFirstJob pages, or register with GetMyFirstJob websites or services, a cookie helps GetMyFirstJob to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same GetMyFirstJob website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the GetMyFirstJob features that you customised.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the GetMyFirstJob services or websites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

GetMyFirstJob secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. GetMyFirstJob secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Statement

GetMyFirstJob will occasionally update this Privacy Statement to reflect company and customer feedback. GetMyFirstJob encourages you to periodically review this Privacy Statement to be informed of how GetMyFirstJob is protecting your information.

Acquisition of GetMyFirstJob

GetMyFirstJob may need to disclose your personal information in the event that it disposes of its business, in which case it may disclose your personal information to the prospective buyer of its business.
