By registering or by using this site, you explicitly accept, without limitation or qualification, the collection, use and transfer of the personal information provided by you in the manner described in this Policy. Please read this Policy carefully as it affects your rights and liabilities under law. If you disagree with the way we collect and process personal information collected on the website, please do not use it.
Personal information is information that can be used to identify you, or any other individual to whom the information may relate, personally. We do not collect personal information unless you choose to provide it to us. Some examples of personal information that we collect in some areas of our Site, depending on the services you use and law, are:
Demographic information is information that is not unique to you in the sense that it refers to selected population characteristics, such as your area code or postal code, age, preferences, gender, race or ethnicity, occupation, career history, interests and favorites. We also collect behavioral information regarding how you use our sites and mobile applications, the areas of our site that you visit, what services you access, and information about your computer hardware and software including your IP address, geo-location, browser and operating system type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is necessary for analysing the use of resources, troubleshooting problems, preventing fraud, and improving our services.
In addition, uhired.me may collect indirect information about you when you use certain third party services on our web site. For example if you provide a title of ‘Mrs.’ we will assume you are female.
We may personalise the advertising that you are shown on our sites or other sites with which we have a business relationship. In order to provide this personalisation, in addition to information we collect about you on our sites, we acquire information (including personal, demographic, behavioral and indirect information) about you from third parties who provide it to us.
Information you post in public areas of the site or placed in the searchable Curriculum Vitae (CV) database will be accessed, used, and stored by others around the world. We strive to provide a safe, secure environment by attempting to limit access to our database to legitimate users, but cannot guarantee that unauthorised parties will not gain access. We also cannot control how authorised users store or transfer information downloaded from the database, so you should ensure that you do not post sensitive information to uhired.me.
We use the information we collect about you to deliver the products and services we offer, and to operate and improve our sites. Our services include the display of personalised content and advertising on our site or other sites with which we have a business relationship. We may use your information to contact you about uhired.me site updates, conduct surveys, or informational and service-related communications, including important security updates.
By registering with uhired.me, by managing your profile, or opting in when presented with choices, you have consented for us to use your information, subject to Kenyan law, in the following ways:
Some of our products and services, such as our searchable CV database and networking, enable third parties to see your personal information and to contact you. Profile information may be used for networking with other community members or may be visible to employers who are using the uhired.me Sites. In addition, portions of your searchable CV (but not your contact information) may be made public in your networking profile.
BY PROVIDING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION FOR INCLUSION IN OUR DATABASE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU CONSENT TO YOUR INFORMATION BEING USED AS DESCRIBED HERE. WHILE UHIRED.ME TAKES MEASURES TO SAFEGUARD YOUR INFORMATION FROM UNAUTHORISED ACCESS OR INAPPROPRIATE USE BY THIRD PARTIES, UHIRED.ME DOES NOT CONTROL THESE THIRD PARTIES AND WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR USE OF INFORMATION YOU POST OR OTHERWISE MAKE AVAILABLE IN PUBLIC AREAS OF THE UHIRED.ME SITE. ACCORDINGLY, YOU SHOULD ENSURE THAT YOU DO NOT POST SENSITIVE INFORMATION, INCLUDING PERSONALINFORMATION, TO THE UHIRED.ME SITE.
We share your information with third parties who help us in the delivery of our own products and services to you. These third parties may not use that information for any purpose other than assisting us in providing those products and services.
If you have consented for us to do so, we may use your information to contact you about other products or services available from our affiliates.
If you have consented for us to do so, we may also share your information with third parties who may contact you about their products or services. For example, if you make your CV searchable, then all parties with access to our searchable CV database (or copies thereof) will have access to your CV. If you indicate by configuring your profile that you would like to receive information about the opportunities, products or services of third parties, we supply your contact information to select third parties such as employers, recruiters, data aggregators, marketers or others for the purpose of sending you e-mail or otherwise communicating with you. We use data we have about you (such as the interests and preferences you have expressed) to determine whether you might be interested in the opportunities, products or services of a particular third party.
We also share information where legally required. Information collected on our Sites is stored in whole or in part in Kenya, and may be subject to Kenyan law. We may disclose and transfer information if our business is sold or acquired.
You may review, correct, or delete the personal information you submit to us at any time. Simply log into your account, go to your account profile, and make the necessary changes. We will delete your personal information, but will retain logs, demographic and statistical information about you and keep an archival copy of your information in an anonymised form. If your personal information was previously accessed by others using the Sites, we are unable to delete the information from their systems.
uhired.me has no control over the information that Ad Networks or other third parties may have about you. We encourage you to visit their web sites and review and read the privacy policies and opt-out practices that govern their usage.
If you change your mind about receiving communications from uhired.me or other parties, you may change your preferences by logging into your account.
You may also turn off cookies in your browser. This may affect your use of the site.
You are responsible for ensuring that your log-in credentials (your username and password) are kept confidential.
uhired.me has implemented technical and organisational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorised access, use, alteration or disclosure. Notwithstanding such measures, the Internet is an open system and we cannot guarantee that unauthorised third parties will not be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. Moreover, one of our primary purposes is to provide you with a platform to broadcast the information in your CV and profile widely in order to maximise your career opportunities.Such an environment does present a risk that unauthorised third parties will view this data, so you should contact us regarding additional information on conducting a safe job search. Further, your CV should not contain any sensitive data that you would not want made public. You should be aware that CV’s may be monitored by your current employer.
uhired.me is not intended for, nor do we knowingly collect information from, children under the age of 18.
