The Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act) sets out a number of principles that private sector organisations must comply with in the open and transparent collection, storage, use and disclosure of personal information. These principles are known as the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs). HerWerk is bound by and endeavours at all times to comply with the APPs.
I. INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We collect information from you when you complete a company review, subscribe to our newsletter or respond to a survey. When registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name and email address. You may, however, visit our site anonymously.
The Personal Information we collect for you may vary depending on how you interact with the Site. For example, to create an account we may ask only for an email address and password. In other circumstances, we may ask you to provide other information. For example, for our company ratings you may be required to provide information such as job title and career level, and you may be invited to provide optional information such as demographic information. We also collect and store certain information associated with actions you take.
II. USE OF YOUR INFORMATION
In general, the Personal Information you provide may be used in one of the following ways:
- To personalise your experience (your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs)
- To improve our website (we continually strive to improve our website based on the information and feedback we receive from you)
- To improve customer service (your information helps us to more effectively respond to your customer service requests and support needs)
- To send periodic emails (The email address you provide may be used to send you information, respond to inquiries and/or other requests or questions)
One of the purposes of the Site is to aggregate and share employment-related information with other Users. Therefore, you should assume that any information (excluding any personally identifiable information) that you submit will be anonymized, aggregated, and made available to other Users of the Site and services. In the event that we provide you with the ability to anonymously post certain comments, we will not include anything personally identifiable with those comments on the Site. However, you should know that our internal records may associate your contact information with such information.
We may use the information we collect to provide you with personalized content, services offered by HerWerk, as well as promotional content and services.
We may use the information we collect to determine relevant search results and provide you with recommended jobs or companies, or to reach out to you about jobs or companies you may be interested in.
We may use the information we collect to provide you with announcements, notifications related to the services we provide, and other communications such as electronic newsletters, promotional e-mails or similar messaging.
We may share certain information that does not identify you personally, but that is unique to your use of the Site, such as job titles that you have entered at the time of registration or on your profile. We do not link this information to personally identifiable information when we provide it to others, such as advertisers, recruiters, or employers.
We may also use the information we collect to conduct research on our Users’ demographics and behaviour based on the information you provide us when you submit information on our site. This research is usually conducted and analysed on an aggregate basis, but may also be combined with Personal Information to help us improve our services.
We may use the information we collect to customise and improve features, performance and support of the site, to provide relevant advertising, including interest-based advertising from us and third parties, to share your saved User Profile with employers, to analyse use of and improve the Site, to create aggregate and statistical data that does not identify you individually and that we can commercialise, and for other purposes that you separately authorise as you interact with the Site.
III. DISCLOSING YOUR INFORMATION
We do not sell, trade or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business or providing services to you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We also may release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies or protect ours or others rights, property or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising or other uses.
IV. YOUR RIGHTS REGARDING THE USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes. When we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional email.
V. YOUR CONSENT
These terms and conditions govern your use of our website. Please read the terms in full before you use this website. If you do not accept these terms, please do not use this website. Using the site implies that you accept these terms. We do occasionally update these terms, so please refer back to them in the future.
