We may also use this data to monitor site performance for systems administration purposes, to make this Site easier and more convenient to use and to report information in aggregate form to our advisers (e.g. how many visitors log in to this Site).
Tracking user preferences also helps us serve you targeted advertising. Targeted advertisements are probably more interesting for you and are more productive for our advertisers.
Personal Information Collection, Use And Distribution To Third Parties Generally
There are times when we may ask you for or you may choose to provide information about yourself or your business to assist us in meeting your various needs. This information may be used for the following purposes: answering your questions, providing you with services you have requested, giving producers and developers of the Site information that is useful in determining appropriate new features, content and services, to provide advertisers with aggregate, not individual, information about our customers, or informing you of additional services or job opportunities provided by ITSS Recruitment Ltd or by our business partners, that may interest you.
To provide these services, we may need to ask you directly to provide, among other things, your name, mailing address, postal code, email address and phone number ("Registration Information"). You may also elect to apply on-line to a job posting (free of charge) OR to purchase one of our services. Purchasing services with us may require us to gather additional personal information (including credit or debit card information, where appropriate).
At times, we also conduct on-line surveys to better understand the needs, profiles, and experience of our visitors. You will be given the option to participate in such surveys. Unless you request to receive the results of the survey via email, no personal information is requested during such surveys and all information is used on an aggregated basis only.

How long we Retain your Personal Information
ITSS Recruitment Ltd will retain your Personal Information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes that we collected it for. This means we will keep your Personal Information throughout the period of your relationship with us and whilst we are providing you with work finding services.
If you no longer wish to receive our services we will continue to retain your Personal Information on our Candidate database for a further period of 2 years after our relationship ends, so that we can comply with our regulatory obligations. However we will inactivate your candidate record and limit access to your Personal Information during this period. After the 2 year retention period expires, we will anonymise the Personal Information in our database so that we can no longer identify you.
We are required by law to keep basic information about our Candidates, Clients and customers (including contracts, evidence of identity, financial and transaction data) for up to 7 years from when our relationship ends, for legal, compliance and tax purposes.
Where there is no retention period stated in law, we determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Information by considering the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the Personal Information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of the data, the purposes for which we process it and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
In some circumstances we may anonymise your Personal Information (so that it can no longer be associated with you and we cannot identify you). We do this for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this anonymised data indefinitely without further notice to you.
