1. COLLECTION OF PERSONAL DATA
Users may browse the Website anonymously. However, Users will have to create a user account in order to sign-up as job seeker or receive more information regarding the job advertisements on the Website.
When creating a user account with Jobstore, Users consent to provide their personal data, including but not limited to:
any other information that is relevant to the services we provide.
Jobstore may collect an Individual's personal information by the following methods:
directly from applications, questionnaires and other forms the Individual completes when they wish to use Jobstore's services;
from information disclosed to Jobstore by the Individual on the phone, or by sending correspondence (including letters, faxes and emails) to Jobstore;
from a variety of third party sources, including Jobstore's business contacts, identity verification service providers, financial institutions, or referrers; or
from information disclosed by the Individual when creating a user account using social media credentials as provided for on the Website from time to time. In doing so, Users consent to Jobstore collecting personal data that may be available through such social media networks, including but not limited to Facebook.

These exceptions include if the collection is required or authorised by law or necessary to take appropriate action in relation to suspected unlawful activity or serious misconduct.
If the personal information Jobstore requests is not provided by an Individual, Jobstore may not be able to provide the Individual with the benefit of its services.
Jobstore does not give Individuals the option of dealing with it anonymously, or under a pseudonym. This is because it is impractical and in some circumstances illegal, for Jobstore to deal with Individuals who are not identified.
If Users provide Jobstore with any personal information relating to a third party, by submitting such information to Jobstore, Users represent to Jobstore that they have obtained the consent of the third party to provide Jobstore with such personal information for the purposes stated in paragraph 5.

2. ONLINE JOB APPLICATIONS
Making an online job application to a job advertisement on Jobstore is a free and optional service that requires Job Seeker to complete mandatory fields (for example first name, last name, gender, age, address, contact number and email) so that the Employer can identify and contact the Job Seeker. When first applying for the a job, Job Seekers who do not have a Jobstore Profile will also be required to create a Jobstore Profile based on the information contained in their application, and you may subsequently edit your Jobstore Profile.
When you apply for a job advertisement on our website, applications including cover letters and attachments are forwarded directly to the Employer and/or its nominated representative.
Some Employers may also require you to answer a list of questions selected by that Employer as part of your online application. By answering the application questions you acknowledge that Jobstore will provide your answers to that Employer and may use your answers to populate your Jobstore Profile and enable Employer to access that information when using Talent Search. Jobstore may also use your answers to improve our products, including through improving our search and matching capabilities.
Jobstore collects the company name, business address and billing address of Advertisers. It also collects the name, email address and contact number of a primary contact. Employers can choose to add additional users to their account, in which case Jobstore will collect the name, email address and contact number of those other users. Employers can change the company name, contact number, billing address and other details at their own Employer's account signed-up with Jobstore, under the Company Information page.
