inploi is an online talent attraction technology, services, and resources platform. Employers that we work with and our site visitors use inploi to find and be found for work opportunities, to apply for jobs and to obtain related information.
This version of the policy was adopted in August 2022
All site visitors seeking job opportunities or simply browsing the site are described in this policy as (“Users”).
This policy also provides information relevant to businesses that we have a relationship with as we hold a limited amount of personal data concerning the contacts we have with these businesses as explained below.
Users who are looking for work when uploading a CV or similar document share information about their professional identities (including their work and educational histories, their job preferences and other related information) facilitated through the inploi platform on and through which they learn about, access, and apply for, jobs, and other opportunities with companies whose details we publish.
The inploi Services include but are not limited to the inploi website, inploi mobile applications, inploi widget, inploi customer support systems, inploi technologies wherever they may be (on the internet or otherwise) and all inploi communications via any format (together the “Services”).
In our relationships with Employers and other relevant third parties we have data sharing or processing arrangements in place that take account of the responsibilities we and they will have in the way that personal data is shared and then processed.
We may invite you to create an account with inploi. You will be offered the opportunity to provide data including your full name, email address, phone number, and a password.
If you register as a customer of inploi in the course of receiving services from inploi, you will be required to include your company name as well.
When registering as an employer we will ask you to provide contact details for individuals that we are to communicate with or who are authorised to communicate with us and will hold that data as a data controller.
Users may be required to make initial contact with an Employer using a conversational user interface function provided as part of the inploi services.
Personal data that you initially enter through the chat function on our website forms the data that we collect (which may include your CV) will be passed on with your consent to an Employer that you wish to make your job application to. That initial data is only made available to the Employer when you have responded to the prompt confirming that the data may be submitted. The data you have entered via the inploi chat function and the CV may be retained by inploi together with information relating to the job function you are expressing interest in. With your consent this data may be used to create your online professional profile, to be used for further job applications, to connect with other users, and to participate in and interact with the inploi community. We may also use that information to provide you with details of similar job opportunities that may be of interest to you. You will be able to request the deletion of your data or to update your communication preferences at any time.
We log usage data when you visit and/or use our Services, including our sites, mobile applications, and other platform technologies (e.g., our off-site widgets, communications sent through push, email, text message and other channels, and partner page listings)], such as when you view or click on content or adverts (on or off the Services), perform a search, install or update one of our mobile apps, share content or apply for jobs.
We use your data to provide, support, personalise, develop and continually improve our Services. The data that is used/how we use it depends on how you use the Services but generally it is utilised to provide you with a better, more relevant experience. For example by showing you better-matched jobs, companies recommendations in order to enhance your experience of the Services by reminding you to take particular actions.
The Services help Users looking for work to access and apply for job opportunities.
We may also utilise your location in order to personalise the Services based on your proximity to things including job/education opportunities, other connections, partners etc. or to calculate things like commuting time to job locations.
Employers may wish to contact Users who have applied for jobs, for instance in order to conduct an interview, to obtain more information about an opportunity or a job application or to follow up on unanswered messages. The company may also contact you in this way in order to assist with and enhance the provision of the Services to our Users. This may include messages about how to best use the Services, reminders, job suggestions, training suggestions, promotional messages from our partners. and important service messages from us for instance with regards to updates to this policy, information about service disruptions, and any communications related to security.
We constantly strive to improve the Services and to provide our Users and visitors a better experience. All data received from surveys and user feedback in any form will be utilised to further improve and develop the Services, driving User growth and engagement with the Services, with other people, and with opportunities. You are not obliged to respond to any surveys. When you submit support requests or correspond with the company seeking support we use your communications and other data to investigate, respond to and resolve complaints and Service issues (e.g., bugs).
We may utilise aggregated, anonymised data about our Users and their usage of the Services in order to provide information and insights to our Users and other interested parties. This could include things like wage data, page views, job views, job/vacancy densities, job application numbers, skills requirements and related information.
We may also use your data to gain an insight into a user’s suitability to roles that users apply for, using information such as experience and qualifications referred to in any submitted CV or other document supporting an application you wish to make.
We use third-party service providers to help us provide our Services to you (for example the facilitation of payments, [to enable voice and video calling], to store and process data, to analyse User behaviour etc.) Such third parties will only have access to such information as is necessary to perform their required tasks on our behalf. We shall only use such Services having determined that they have implemented appropriate safeguards for the protection of your data and interests and that in doing so we meet the compliance requirements of Data Protection Legislation...
The inploi platform hosts a large number of jobs from all over the world. Many of these job advertisements will be received by us from third parties, in an effort to provide you with the widest range of available opportunities and to give you a more complete view of what jobs are available for you to apply for.
Sometimes when you use inploi to access a job with an application process that is hosted outside of our platform we may be able to submit an application on your behalf. If this is possible, we will, as far as possible, use the information you have provided to us to complete the application for you. Where more information is needed you will be prompted to enter this.
We may disclose information about you when doing so is required by law or if we believe that disclosure is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities and/or to assist government enforcement agencies in these instances; to enforce our agreements with you; to investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations; to protect the security or integrity of our Services (such as by sharing with companies facing similar threats); or to exercise or protect the rights and safety of inploi, our Users, personnel, or others. We will notify Users about legal demands for their personal data when we consider it to be appropriate, unless such disclosure is prohibited by law or legal order or when the request is an emergency. We may at our discretion dispute such demands when we believe, that requests for any information are unwarranted, unnecessarily broad, vague, or lacking in proper authority.

We will retain certain of your personal data for as long as your account remains open on the Services. This includes data that you or others have provided to us and data generated via your usage of the Services.
