International Transfers of Personal Information

Personal Information which you supply to us is generally stored and kept inside our dedicated servers located in the United States.

However, due to the nature of our global business and the technologies required, your Personal Information may be transferred to third party service providers outside the United States, in countries where there may be a lower legal level of data protection. Therefore, as far as you make your profile searchable to recruiters, a recruiter could also be located outside of the South Pacific. That means that as part of the contract between you and us, it might be necessary that your profile is accessed from a country that does not have the same level of data protection as the United States. In such situations, we transfer the minimum amount of data necessary, anonymise it where possible and enter legal contracts to aim to ensure these third parties handle your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the United States levels of data protection.
