    4. If you have given your consent to us contacting you with marketing information and updates about our services and the Platform and Website , we may work with social media companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Linkedin to provide you with information about our products and services via their Website. If you do not wish to see these adverts, you can disable preference-based marketing in the privacy and ad settings on each individual social platform.

    5. Even if you have withdrawn your consent to personalised marketing by us, you may still see general adverts for StudentJobs products and services on your social media feeds. These will not be specifically targeted to you, and again, you can control this via the privacy and ad settings on each platform.

    6. In addition to our own headquarters, a majority of our third-party suppliers and partners, whom we use to provide our services, or ensure the functionality of the Website, are based in, or carry out their activities in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). Where necessary, User data may be handled by such third-parties, and they may have access to your data from time to time. 

 

  1. COOKIES[FvW8] 

    1. Cookies are files with small amounts of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. We use cookies to collect information and to let us know whether you are a prior user. This information may include internet protocol addresses, browser type, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, the files viewed on our Website (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. Cookies are not used to store other Personal Information. Users can instruct their web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if Users do not accept cookies, they may not be able to use some parts of the Website. 

    2. Third parties under contract with StudentJobs may use cookies to collect Non-Personal Information about your usage of the Website. These third-party service providers may use this information to help StudentJobs deliver services on the Website based on your browsing activity.

 

  1. SECURITY

    1. We adopt standard data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of Users’ Personal Information, and data stored on our Website. 

    2. We do not sell, trade, or rent Users’ Personal Information to others. We may, however, share generic aggregated demographic information, not linked to any Personal Information with our business partners and trusted affiliates for the purposes outlined above in accordance with the aforementioned Clause 3.1.

    3. We endeavour to exercise our best efforts to keep your information secure. However, we cannot guarantee the safety of your Personal Information and therefore shall not be held liable in the event of a breach of security beyond our reasonable control. 

    4. We encrypt the transmission of your Personal Information (including any personal information collected from various tools on our Website) or use secure socket layer connections technology to ensure security and confidentiality.

 

  1. MAINTENANCE OF INFORMATION AND DATA

    1. We hold your Personal Information, as well as any other data collected hereunder, only as long as we have a valid legal reason to do so, which includes providing you with the services you have requested, maintaining the Website, meeting our legal and regulatory obligations, resolving disputes and enforcing our contractual, legal and moral obligations. The length of time for which we keep different types of Personal Information can vary, depending on why we originally obtained them, the reason we process them and the legal requirements that apply to them.

    2. We may continue to store User data even after you have stopped using our services, including if you no longer have a job vacancy or are searching for a career opportunity. Information we hold about you can be removed from our Website. We  shall use our best endeavours to comply with your request for deletion of your information, however your data may continue to be stored and logged by any third-party organisations that we may work with from time to time to facilitate the services. 

    3. When setting our data retention and deletion timescales we consider a range of factors including applicable regulations and standards relating to taxation, payment processing and complaint handling, the need to prevent or detect crime or other misuse of our services, and audit requirements. To fulfill our requirements, some of your personal data will need to be retained for a period of time after you cease to be a User. When we no longer need it to fulfil the above requirements, we will delete it securely. Where we wish to retain any information for analysis purposes, we will first anonymise it so that it can no longer be linked back to an individual. Please note that if you opt out of receiving marketing from us, we will still need to keep your contact details in order to suppress them from future marketing activity.

    4. In the event of a corporate change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, we reserve the right to transfer your Personal Information to the new party in control or the party acquiring assets. In the event of such a change, your Personal Information will continue to be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy unless any changes to the Privacy Policy are made in accordance with the Clause 7 below.
