Privacy Statement

The following statement has been prepared to demonstrate our commitment to safeguarding the privacy of our users.

hunterdunning.co.uk¬†allows users to submit their personal details and employment history (“CV”) to its database. The principle objective of this privacy statement is to explain how we will use this personal information.

Users can store their CV on our database for two reasons:

  1. To simplify the process of applying for a job online but exclude it from our searchable database. If a CV is excluded from our searchable database we will not reveal any personal information you give us to any third party.
  2. To include their CV within our searchable database which will allow a recruitment agency (which has been granted access) to view their personal details.

The user can remove (or modify) their CV from our database at any time by visiting our website. However, prior to its removal, copies of that CV may have been retained by our subscribers and we accept no responsibility for loss of privacy in these instances.

As a rule, employers are not given direct access to our searchable database of CVs. However, whilst we will endeavour to keep your information secure, users must understand that the internet is not a safe method of communication or storage of information and we accept no responsibility if a third party gains access to personal information through no negligence, fraud or willful default on our part.

Gaining access to CVs within our database is achieved by supplying us with an email address and a password. This information is exclusive to the user and must be kept safe at all times. Whilst we endeavour to keep our systems secure, we accept no responsibility for any security breach which results from a third party gaining access to a user’s email address and password through no negligence, fraud or willful default on our part.

hunterdunning.co.uk may employ the use of “cookies” which improve the performance and speed of our website. A cookie is a small file which is placed on the hard drive of the user’s computer so that we can recognise that user each time he or she accesses our site. If you do not want us to place a cookie on your hard drive, please adjust your browser accordingly. Please note that this may well hinder the performance of the site.

We are constantly gathering demographic information about our users and may anonomise this data for research purposes.

We reserve the right to change this privacy policy at any time by posting the update online.
