Privacy Statement

This privacy statement was last modified on July 21st, 2010 and is effective immediately.

DEVAID Limited is committed to protecting the privacy of its users and strives to provide a safe, secure user experience. The information we provide in this document is designed to help you understand how we use your information and the choices you have for protecting it.

DEVAID Limited collects personal information about you and distributes that information to help you connect with employers and other job seekers with similar interests and to provide other services to you.

Information we collect and retain

The rights to access and use of the service are non-exclusive.

We collect the personal and demographic information that you choose to provide us. We also collect information about how you use our site and the areas of our site that you visit. The resulting logs contain information necessary for analyzing the use of our resources, troubleshooting problems, and improving services. We reserve the right to use cookies and web beacons.

You do not have to give us any personal information in order to perform job searches or to read the content portions of our site. In any case, it is indicated on the web site whether any personal or demographic data must be provided to use the requested service or not.

How Information is Used

Information you post in public areas of the site or placed in the searchable resume database will be accessed, used, and stored by others around the world. We strive to provide a safe, secure environment by attempting to limit access to our database to legitimate users, but cannot guarantee that unauthorized parties will not gain access. We also cannot control how authorized users store or transfer information downloaded from the database, so you should ensure that you do not post sensitive information on our site.

We use the information we collect about you to deliver the products and services we offer, and to operate and improve our service. We may use your information to contact you regarding DevelopmentAid updates, conduct surveys, or informational and service-related communications, including important security updates.

Disclosure of Information to Others

We share information where legally required. Information collected on our site is stored in whole or in part in the Netherlands and may be subject to Dutch law.

Your Choices about Your Information

You may review, correct, or delete the personal information you submit to us at any time. Simply sign in to your account, go to your account profile, and make the necessary changes. We will delete your personal information, but we will retain logs, demographic and statistical information about you and keep an archival copy of your information in an anonymized form. If your personal information was previously accessed and stored by others using the service, we are unable to delete the information from their systems.

If you change your mind about receiving communications from DevelopmentAid, you may change your preferences by logging into your account. You may also turn off cookies in your browser. This may affect your user experience.

DevelopmentAid contains links to other web sites over which we have no control. DevelopmentAid is not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of other web sites to which you choose to link from this site. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of those other web sites so you can understand how they collect, use and share your information.

We do not control the data use practices of employers or others who may access your information through other sites. We encourage you to review the privacy policies and opt-out choices of those third parties so you can understand how they collect, use and share your information.

Privacy Policy Changes

DEVAID Limited is committed to ensuring the most secure and private operating environment for all users of the service. We will post any amendments or revisions of our privacy policy here so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and how we protect you and your organisation’s privacy.
