PRIVACY POLICY

Safeguarding your privacy is important to us. We have developed this Policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate and disclose and make use of personal information. The following outlines our privacy policy.

We will collect and use of personal information solely with the objective of fulfilling those purposes specified by us and for other compatible purposes, unless we obtain the consent of the individual concerned or as required by law.

We will only retain personal information as long as necessary for the fulfilment of those purposes.

We will collect personal information by lawful and fair means and, where appropriate, with the knowledge or consent of the individual concerned.

Personal data should be relevant to the purposes for which it is to be used, and, to the extent necessary for those purposes, should be accurate, complete, and up-to-date.

We will protect personal information by reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.

We will make readily available to customers information about our policies and practices relating to the management of personal information.

We are committed to conducting our business in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained. Please read the Policy carefully before you use our Services. You should not use our Services if you are not comfortable with what is stated below, and your continued use of Services constitutes consent to the Policy and the use and sharing of your information as provided herein.

SCOPE

Our Privacy Policy applies to all of the services offered by Swan Global W.L.L and its affiliates. This Privacy Policy is effective with respect to any data that we have collected, or collect, about and/or from you, according to our Terms of Use.

The Information We Collect

We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this Privacy Policy. Swan Global and its affiliates are the sole owner of information collected on this website.

Swan Global reserves its right to share your personal information with its licensees and affiliates.

Swan Global is an online human resource outsoucing service and collects a variety of personal data necessary to provide these services. By choosing to enter your personal information on this site you indicate your willingness to disclose this information to Swan Global and employers registered with it, and to be considered, when appropriate, for one of Swan Global's vacancies. If you do not wish to disclose this information, Swan Global will be unable to provide you the services offered by this site, since employment, educational, and other personal information is necessary in order to assess your employment opportunities.

It is not Swan Global's policy to seek any sensitive information through our website unless legally required for recruitment purposes. Sensitive information includes data relating to race or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or similar beliefs, trade union membership, physical or mental health, sexual life, or criminal record. We suggest that you do not provide sensitive information of this nature. If you do wish to provide sensitive information for any reason, Swan Global accepts your explicit consent to use that information in the ways described in this Privacy Policy or as described at the point where you choose to disclose.

Payment and transaction information: We collect and process payment information from you when you subscribe to our paid Services/products, including credit cards numbers and billing information like your physical address, using third party PCI-compliant service providers. Except for this, we do not collect Sensitive Information from you.

How We Use and Disclose Personally-Identifying Information

In order to present you as a candidate on a vacancy, your personal information may be provided to Swan Global's clients (potential employers), affiliates, and licensees. If you do not wish to participate in this service and benefit from the career opportunities that Swan Global provides, please do not enter your personal information into the website.

Information obtained by the site is used only for the intended purposes stated. It is Swan Global's policy not to sell or share your personal information for related or unrelated purposes to non-licensee third parties, unless otherwise stated at the time of collection. If at any time we decide to use personal data in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will endeavour to notify you and give you a choice as to whether or not we use your information in this different manner. No notification and choice will be sought if Swan Global is compelled or required by applicable law, statute, regulation, ordinance, or court order to disclose personal data.

How We Use and Disclose Non-Personally Identifying Information

Your personal information may also be used anonymously and in the aggregate in order to put together industry, marketing and employment statistics. Used in this matter, your personal information becomes non-identifying. Swan Global also monitors IP addresses for security purposes, trend analysis, site administration, user movement tracking, and broad demographic information gathering for aggregate use. The IP address of the computer you use to access Swan Global (the 'internet street address' of your computer) is not linked to any personal information you provide on the site.

Information Security and Integrity

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain accuracy of data and ensure proper use of information, Swan Global has put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial security procedures to safeguard all information collected online.

We will not process your personal information in a way that is incompatible with what is outlined in the Privacy Statement, and will use our best efforts to ensure that data is accurate, complete, current and reliable for its intended use. We also will use our best efforts to protect your information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.

When you post your resume, Swan Global automatically creates a registration for you using the email address and password that you supply. When you return to the site in the future you will use that same email address and password to access and edit your existing resume.

User ID and Password

If you forget your password, click the 'Forgot Password' link that appears on the Log In Screen and enter your User ID. The system will then send you an email with a link to reset your password.

Swan Global reserves the right to change User IDs and Passwords at any time to protect the security of the site.

If the information you provided once you registered with the site changes or needs to be amended, please follow the directions below to amend and modify such information:

Newsletter, Site/Service Updates, Surveys, and Contests

Swan Global may offer newsletters to registered users of the site via email.
