We will treat and protect that person’s information in the same way as set out in this Privacy Policy. Sensitive Data Sometimes we may collect sensitive information including Sensitive Personal Data if you choose to disclose this to us or as part of providing Services to you.

Direct marketing

We may use your personal information to send you direct marketing communications about the Services or our related services. This may be in the form of email, post, SMS, telephone or targeted online advertisements This may also include email communications, including information that we think may be of interest to you, and information on upcoming changes or improvements. In most cases our processing of your personal information for marketing purposes is based on our legitimate interests, although in some cases (such as where required by applicable laws or where we use or process any of your Sensitive Personal information or Sensitive Data) it may be based on your explicit consent. You can find out more on how we process your Sensitive Personal Data and Sensitive Information above. You have a right to prevent direct marketing of any form at any time – this can be exercised by following the opt-out links in electronic communications, or contact us. When you receive any permitted electronic marketing communications from us, you may opt out of receiving further marketing communications by following the opt-out instructions provided in the communication. Please specify whether you would like us to stop all forms of marketing or just a particular type (e.g. email). You can also change the way your browser manages cookies, which may be used to deliver online advertising, by following the settings on your browser. See further our Cookies section above and our Cookies Policy. For EU/UK individuals: When and how we carry out profiling and automated decision making We do not conduct any automated decision-making on your personal information. We may use limited profiling or other forms of automated processing for:

  • security purposes only to assess if your account may be fraudulent, a spam account or suspect in any way;
  • the purposes of marketing, and where this is completed we undertake to do this to pursue our legitimate interests of ensuring our marketing communications are relevant to you, its audience and persons to whom it is targeted.

As profiling uses automated processing, it is sometimes connected with automated decision making. Not all profiling results in automated decision making, but it can do. Please note, you have certain rights (including a right to object) in respect of automated decision making, where that decision has significant effects on you, including where it produces a legal effect on you. See below for more information about your rights.

Accessing, correcting and updating your personal information

To request access to personal information we hold about you, please contact us. If that information is incorrect, out of date or incomplete, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When requesting access or changes to your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we act on your request. There are some circumstances in which we are not required to give you access to your personal information. We may reject requests that are unlawful, frivolous, vexatious, unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing existing practices), that we believe risk the privacy, health or safety of others, or would be otherwise be extremely impractical (for example requests concerning information on our backup systems or unique ID data on Users). Where we provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where in our opinion it would require a disproportionate effort or cost for us to do so. We may require you to meet our reasonable costs in providing you with access including for photocopying and postage. Where you correct, update or otherwise provide personal information, you represent to us that the information you provide to us is, having regard to the circumstances, accurate, up to date and complete, having regard to the purposes of the disclosure, and not misleading or deceptive. We will respond to any requests to change your personal information within a reasonable timeframe and will take all reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we hold about you remains accurate, up-to-date and complete. For EU/UK individuals If you are an individual based in or a resident of the European Union or the United Kingdom, there are additional rights to your personal data available to you. Please see below your detailed rights including rights of access, erasure, rectification and portability of your personal data.

Right What this means
Access You can ask us to:

  • confirm whether we are processing your personal information;
  • give you a copy of that data;
  • provide you with other information about your personal information such as what data we have, what we use it for, who we disclose it to, whether we transfer it abroad and how we protect it, how long we keep it for, what rights you have, how you can make a complaint, where we got your data from, to the extent that information has not already been provided to you in this Privacy Policy.
Rectification You can ask us to rectify inaccurate personal information. We may seek to verify the accuracy of the data before rectifying it.
Erasure You can ask us to erase your personal information, but only where:

  • it is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected; or
  • you have withdrawn your consent (where the data processing was based on consent); or
  • following a successful right to object (see ‘Objection’ below); or
  • it has been processed unlawfully; or
  • to comply with a legal obligation to which LiveHire is subject.

We are not required to comply with your request to erase your personal information if the processing of your personal information is necessary:

  • for compliance with a legal obligation; or
  • for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
Restriction You can ask us to restrict (i.e. keep but not use) your personal information, but only where:

  • its accuracy is contested (see Rectification), to allow us to verify its accuracy; or
  • the processing is unlawful, but you do not want it erased; or
  • it is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected, but we still need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or
  • you have exercised the right to object, and verification of overriding grounds is pending.

We can continue to use your personal information following a request for restriction, where:

  • we have your consent;
  • to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or
  • to protect the rights of another natural or legal person.
Portability You can ask us to provide your personal information to you in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format but case only where:

  • the processing is based on your consent or on the performance of a contract with you; and
  • the processing is carried out by automated means.
Objection You can object to any processing of your personal information which has our ‘legitimate interests’ as its legal basis, if you believe your fundamental rights and freedoms outweigh our legitimate interests. Once you have objected, we have an opportunity to demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate interests which override your rights and freedoms.
International transfers You can ask to obtain a copy of, or reference to, the safeguards under which your personal information is transferred outside of the European Economic Area. We may redact data transfer agreements or related documents (i.e. obscure certain information contained within these documents) for reasons of commercial sensitivity.
Supervisory Authority You have a right to lodge a complaint with your local supervisory authority about our processing of your personal information. For example, in the UK, the supervisory authority for data protection is the ICO. We ask that you please attempt to resolve any issues with us first, although you have a right to contact your supervisory authority at any time.

If you wish to access any of the above mentioned rights, we may ask you for additional information to confirm your identity and for security purposes, in particular before disclosing personal information to you. We reserve the right to charge a fee where permitted by law, for instance if your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive. We may not always be able to fully address your request, for example if it would impact the duty of confidentiality we owe to others, or if we are legally entitled to deal with the request in a different way.

Information we share / disclose to other parties

We do not share your personal information with any other Person unless one of the following circumstances applies: Customers: we share personal information with our Customers, including user profile details such as your full CV, verification details, LinkedIn or Facebook data, and other personal data you have provided when you apply to connect to or accept an invitation to connect from a Customer or join a LiveHire talent community (a ‘Connection’). We ensure the protection of your personal information at all times and we have agreements in place with all our Customers to maintain your rights on privacy in a similar way to the protections afforded under this Privacy Policy. You are in full control of the privacy settings on your account on the LiveHire Platform. This gives you full control of your personal information, including to update your information, and if desired, discontinue sharing that information with specific Customers by deactivating the Connection If you are a UK/EU individual based in or resident in the EU/UK, when a Customer contacts you or requests additional information from you for its own purposes (for example for the purposes of inviting you for interview for a role), the information you provide directly to Customer pursuant to such request will be held and processed by that Customer in accordance with their own privacy policy and terms. You should therefore request a copy of and familiarise yourself with the terms and privacy policy of any Customer with whom you wish to engage further.

Third Party Service Providers

International transfers

Your personal information may be disclosed, transferred to or processed outside of your country of residence including to Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Europe and Asia Pacific. Your personal information is principally maintained within data centres and servers located in Australia.

Some of these assurances are well recognized certification schemes like the EU / US ‘Privacy Shield’ for the protection of personal information transferred from within the EU to the United States and /or the use of EU approached Standard Contractual Clauses (‘EU Model Clauses’) for controller to controller and /or controller to processor transfers from the EU /UK to jurisdictions, such as Australia and/or New Zealand, the United States and countries in the Asia-Pacific region who do not have an adequacy finding from the EU Commission ; and/or where we receive requests for information from law enforcement or regulators, we carefully validate these requests before any personal information are disclosed. You have a right to contact us for more information about the safeguards we have put in place (including a copy of relevant contractual commitments) to ensure the adequate protection of your personal information when this is transferred as mentioned above.


Our Privacy Policy applies to all of the Services provided by us.

How long do we keep your personal information?

We will retain your personal information for as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes for which we collect this information. In some limited circumstances we may retain your personal information for longer periods of time, for instance where we are required to do so in accordance with legal, regulatory, tax or accounting requirements. In specific circumstances we may also retain your personal information for longer periods of time so that we have an accurate record of your dealings with us in the event of any complaints or challenges, or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation relating to your personal information or dealings. We aim to maintain our Services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. At the request of any Customer or Worker, all data belonging to the requesting party can be removed from the system. For EU / UK individuals: To determine the appropriate retention periods, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosures the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means and the applicable legal requirements. In some circumstances we may store your personal information for longer periods of time than others, for instance where we are required to do so in accordance with legal, regulatory, tax, accounting requirements. This may be for a seven (7) year period unless the applicable law prescribes otherwise. If you would like more information on how we retain your data, please contact us.


We recognise our responsibility to protect the personal information that you entrust to us. We take security very seriously and work together with you, developers and external security experts to design security into our products from the ground up (including through implementing privacy by design and security by design measures). We store most information about you in computer systems and databases operated by either us or our external cloud Service Providers. Some information about you may be recorded in paper files that we store securely. Our information storage is on secure computers in locked information centres and data is encrypted, wherever possible. However, as the transmission of information across the internet is not completely secure we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to our website and issues can arise. We will also take reasonable steps to destroy or de-identify personal information once we no longer require it for the purposes for which it was collected or for any secondary purpose permitted under the Australian Privacy laws and/or other applicable data privacy laws. We recommend that you create a secure password, do not disclose your password and account details to anyone, and that you change your password each month. As the security of information depends in part on the security of the computer or device you use to communicate with us and the security you use to protect your user IDs and passwords, we encourage you to please take appropriate measures to protect this information. Our Platform is operated using security measures, including SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption, to protect your personal data. SSL is an industry standard encryption protocol, and this ensure that the information is reasonably protected against unauthorised interception. We also implement and maintain processes and security measures to protect personal information which we hold from misuse, interference or loss, and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. These processes and measures may include: requiring all employees to comply with internal information security policies and keep information secure; requiring all employees to complete training about information security; and monitoring and regularly reviewing our practices against our own policies and against industry best practice

Enforcement and complaints

In Australia, this is the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC). We will work with the appropriate regulatory and supervisory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal information that we cannot resolve with you directly. Please note, you may choose to contact us in relation to a particular matter on an anonymous basis or using a pseudonym and, unless it is impracticable for us to do so or we will not be able to respond reasonably to your complaint, we will attempt to resolve your enquiry on such basis.
