This policy is about how we use your personal information (‘data’) on Jobsinabuja.com website (Jobs In Abuja) and the Jobs In Abuja apps. This is separate to how the jobsinabuja.com website uses your data. For information on jobsinabuja.com website, please read the main privacy policy here. For information on how we use your data when you sign up for courses advertised on Jobs In Abuja, please read the courses privacy policy here.

Why do you collect personal data?

We collect personal data to be able to offer a tailored service for your job-hunting needs. The services available depend on whether you have registered with Jobs In Abuja and whether or not you decide to upload your CV to it.

What personal data do you collect?

We collect:

your name; your address; the country you live in; your email address; your phone numbers; your nationality; your IP address (the number identifying your electronic device when accessing the internet); details of your education and working career; your personal interests; and details of how you interact with Jobs In Abuja and Jobs In Abuja app, and vacancies you might be interested in.

How do you collect it?

You provide personal data to Jobs In Abuja by:

registering as a user; posting material to Jobs In Abuja (for example, your CV); and storing a copy of your CV and any other information you provide when you send it to a recruiter.

We also collect information by using cookies. For more information about cookies and how we use them, see our main cookies information page at www.jobsinabuja.com/info/cookies.

What do you do with my personal data?

If you have not registered

If you are not registered, you can use basic functions such as:

sending CVs to job recruiters; adding your CV to the searchable CV database (‘CV database’) ; and signing up for jobs by email (‘Email alerts’)

In these circumstances, we will store a copy of your CV, and any other information you provide, for no longer than we need.

If you have registered

If you are registered with the website, there are more services available, including:

an individual account to send job applications from; the option to receive email alerts about relevant jobs through a CV-matching service and the Job match service; and the option to receive emails about offers and services from the Jobs In Abuja or other organisations.

When you register and upload your CV to Jobs In Abuja, you can also benefit from:

a facility for recruiters to see your CV for specific roles you have applied for or that they believe you might be interested in; a private and secure area on the website to manage your job preferences and privacy settings and to update your CV and details; opting in to Job match emails; storing your CV on Jobs In Abuja database; and a ‘public profile’ which anyone can see (you can hide your CV), including recruiters. This profile shows roles you are interested in, an idea of the salary you are looking for and your preferred location. Recruiters can find this profile through search engines, so do not include your name, contact details or any personal information in this section.

How do the different services available through Jobs In Abuja use my data?

Email alerts

There are two email alerts that you can receive.

If you have accepted jobsinabuja.com marketing emails or signed up for email alerts through Jobs In Abuja, you can receive general job alerts emails suggesting new vacancies, that may be based on previous Jobs website searches. To stop the emails, you can use the unsubscribe link at the bottom of each email and will need to sign in to your jobsinabuja.com profile to adjust your marketing preferences for general emails from jobsinabuja.com marketing.

When you have a Jobs website profile you can also choose to receive Job match emails that are tailored to your job preferences, for example, sector and location. You can stop these emails by using the unsubscribe link at the bottom of each email.

One-off job applications

When you apply for a one-off application, we keep a copy of your CV for six months and share it directly with the company who advertised the position. When applying without a Jobs website profile, you have the option to store a copy of your CV on the main CV database which recruiters search depending on your settings.

Logged in – CV

When you have created an account with Jobs In Abuja and uploaded your CV details, we store your details on the main CV database and recruiters can have access to them, depending on your settings.

Logged in – job applications

When you create an account with Jobs In Abuja, we keep your information in a database until you close your account. Through your account you can change your job-search preferences and control who can see your CV if you have one associated with the account.

CV database

When you apply for jobs on Jobs In Abuja and upload your CV, a copy is stored on the CV database. This database can be searched by recruiters, depending on your settings. To be able to prevent recruiters from seeing your CV on the database, you need to create a Jobs website profile and click on the settings which apply.

If you choose to share your CV or personal details with recruiters, we ask them not to hold your CV for longer than is necessary and not to use your CV for purposes other than recruitment.
