We abide by the ten national privacy principles outlined in The Privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2000. The following statement explains how we collect, manage, store and use your personal information:
How we collect your personal information
We collect your personal information directly from you whenever this is possible, and this will typically be when you deal with us by telephone, letter, fax, e-mail or when you visit our engineering recruitment website and use our on-line engineering jobs enquiry form.
Generally, the type of personal information we collect about you is the information that you submit along with your application or curriculum vitae. This will typically include your name, address and contact details as well as your engineering career history, qualifications and other information relating to your career.
We may in some cases also collect more sensitive information about you such as information about your health or any disability, your racial or ethnic origin, membership of a professional association or any criminal record that you may have. This type of information will only be collected with your prior consent and only in situations where the information is considered relevant and essential for the provision of our engineering recruitment and HR consulting services.
If you elect not to provide us with information we request we will endeavour to advise you of the extent to which this may limit our ability to provide you with our services.
You can gain access to information we hold about you

On occasions when we seek to obtain personal information about you from a third party without your prior consent we will take reasonable steps to inform you that we have collected personal information. We will not attempt to conduct any reference checks without your prior consent.
In cases where you are representing a client organisation or service provider we may collect personal information to facilitate HR consulting services or engineer recruiting to or by JSM Appointments.

How we use and disclose your personal information

However we may use or disclose information for other related purposes such as providing you with one of our career planning, training or coaching services. JSM Appointments does not send your personal details, engineering career profile, resume or CV to other parties for the purpose of securing your employment or a contract with them or their associates without first obtaining your explicit permission.

- Organisations that conduct competency or psychometric tests.
