Job candidates can apply for jobs of our Clients by using online forms, which contain additional information such as Curriculum Vitae, motivation letters, answers to questions, a postal address and additional personal information/work history.

We do not connect any of this information to your personal information or email address. All rights of intellectual property of Subscriber data, information, Subscriber Content, trademarks and trade names are and will remain the property of Subscriber, and Subscriber Content will only be processed by Staffing Platform on behalf of the Subscriber.

3.1 Business Transactions
3.2 Security of Subscriber Information
We secure your Subscriber Information by using commercially reasonable, industry-standard measures to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, or accidental loss, disclosure or destruction thereof. However, even very good security measures may fail to prevent computer hacking or other breaches of security, and we can provide no guarantees that the same will not occur. Additionally, our postings on this Site and other communications you may have with us via email or regular mail may not be secure unless we advise you that security measures are in place prior to your sending information. Therefore, if you choose to communicate with us through these means, you are assuming the risk of doing so and we request that you do not send or post sensitive information through those means.
