You do not have to give us any personal information in order to perform job searches. In some areas of our website, ‘Environment Jobs’ requests that you provide your personal data, including your name, your address, an e-mail address, telephone number. In other areas of our website, ‘Environment Jobs’ collects or may collect demographic information that is not unique to you such as your postcode, age, gender and the types of work in which you are interested. Sometimes we collect or may collect a combination of the two types of information. Examples of areas on this site where we collect personal or combined personal and demographic data are pages where you can open a ‘Environment Jobs’ account, sign up to use a service, post a Resume. In each case, it is indicated on the website whether any data must be provided to use the required service or not.

Moreover, there is information about your computer hardware and software that is or may be collected by ‘Environment Jobs’. This information may include your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses, but is not linked to your personal information.

We may sometimes afford you the opportunity to provide descriptive, cultural, behavioural, preferential and/or life style information about yourself but it is solely up to you whether you furnish such information. If you do provide such information, you are thereby consenting to the use of that information in accordance with the policies and practices described in this Privacy Statement. For example, such information may be used for the purpose of determining your potential interest in receiving e-mail or other communications about particular products or services.

If you use our facilities to build a Resume to put in our database of jobseekers’ Resumes, then you will be providing us with personal data which we will use in accordance with this Statement. We strongly suggest that your Resume should not contain data relating to your (i) racial or ethnic origin (ii) political beliefs (iii) philosophical or religious beliefs (iv) membership of a trade union or political party (v) physical or mental health (vi) sexual life or (vii) the commission of criminal offences or proceedings.

Disclosure of Information to Others

We do not disclose to third parties your personal information, combined personal and demographic information or information about your use of the website (such as the areas you visit or the services you access), except as set forth below.

We may disclose such information to third parties if you consent to such disclosure. For example, if you make your Resume searchable, then all parties with access to our searchable Resume database (or copies thereof) will have access to that database. You may make your Resume unsearchable at any time.

We may disclose such information to companies and individuals we employ to perform functions on our behalf including data processors and including companies and individuals located outside the European Economic Area. The functions performed on our behalf include, analysing data, providing marketing assistance or research. These companies and individuals will have access to your personal information as necessary to perform their functions, but they may not share that information with any other third party or use that data for any other purpose. We will retain control of and be responsible for any information shared in this way.

We may disclose such information if legally required to do so, if requested to do so by a governmental entity or regulatory authority or if we believe in good faith that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process; (b) protect the rights or property of ‘Environment Jobs’ or its affiliated companies; (c) prevent a crime or protect national security; or (d) protect the personal safety of users or the public.

We may disclose and transfer such information to a third party who acquires all or a substantial portion of ‘Environment Jobs business, whether such acquisition is by way of merger, consolidation or purchase of all or a substantial portion of our assets. In addition, in the event ‘Environment Jobs’ becomes the subject of an insolvency proceeding, whether voluntary or involuntary, ‘Environment Jobs’ or its liquidator, administrator, receiver or administrative receiver may sell, license or otherwise dispose of such information in a transaction approved by the court. You will be notified of sale of all or a substantial portion of our business to a third party by email or through a prominent notice posted on the ‘Environment Jobs’ site.

Other Uses of Information

‘Environment Jobs’ may also share aggregated anonymous information about visitors to its websites with its clients, partners and other third parties so that they may understand the kinds of visitors to ‘Environment Jobs site and how those visitors use the site.

If you apply for a position through a hosted career site or a co-branded site, you may be asked to provide information on your age, gender or race where permitted by law. You should understand that, if provided, this information should only be used by employers in accordance with applicable law. However, ‘Environment Jobs’ is not responsible for the actions of such employers. All such information provided will be kept separate by ‘Environment Jobs’ from your expression of interest in any job opportunity. Providing this information is strictly voluntary and you will not be subject to any adverse action or treatment from ‘Environment Jobs’ if you choose not to provide this information.

Your personal data will be stored and processed on computers in the UK as described below. The information we gather on any ‘Environment Jobs’ website may be shared within the ‘Environment Jobs’ group of companies on a worldwide basis in order to deliver the products and services we offer to employers such as assisted searches for jobseekers or in order to undertake analysis of our database such as aggregated profiling of our registered users.

Furthermore, some of the employers or employment agencies that are interested in your Resume may be located outside of the European Economic Area on a worldwide basis. Such countries may not have equivalent data protection legislation protecting the use of your personal data. We will not send your personal data to these employers in these countries unless you have indicated that you would like your Resume to be searchable. By providing this indication, you expressly consent to such transfers of data occurring.


Since ‘Environment Jobs’ is a career site, we give you the option of putting your Resume in our database. There are two ways of doing this:

You can store your Resume in our database, but not allow it to be searchable by potential employers. Not allowing your Resume to be searchable means that you can use it to apply for a job online, but employers and recruiters will not have access to search it through our Resume database product.

If you allow your Resume to be searchable, then all parties with access to our searchable Resume database (or copies thereof) will have access to your Resume. You can also allow your Resume to be searchable but remove your contact details. However, you should be aware that in this situation if you have a rare skill, it may still be possible for a recruiter to identify you even without your contact details being included. If you are worried about being identified, you should not include specific skill or details by which you could be identified.

We attempt to limit access to our searchable Resume database (or copies thereof) only to paying employers, recruiters, hiring managers, headhunters and human resource professionals, as well as law enforcement and national security agencies, but cannot guarantee that other parties will not gain access to this database. We are not responsible for the use made of Resumes by third parties who access such Resumes while they are in our searchable database. You may remove your Resume from our searchable database at any time, details of how to do this are given below. However, employers, recruiters and others who have paid for access to that database or to obtain a copy of that database, as well as parties who have otherwise gained access to the database may have retained a copy of your Resume in their own files or databases. We are not responsible for the retention, use or privacy of Resumes or profiles in these instances.

If you provide us with details of a referee (in your Resume), it is your responsibility to ensure that the person is aware that you have forwarded his/her details and has consented in writing for you to do so.

Use of Cookies - A Statement

‘Environment Jobs’ uses "cookies" to help personalise and maximise your online experience and time online. A cookie is a text file that is either stored in your computer’s memory temporarily (a “session” cookie) or placed on your hard drive (a “persistent” cookie) by a web page server. Cookies are not used to run programmes or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and your computer and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. When you return to the ‘Environment Jobs’ site, cookies enable us to retrieve the information you previously provided, so you can easily use the features that you customised. For example, if you personalise ‘Environment Jobs’ pages, or register for services, a cookie helps us to recall your specific information (such as user name, password and preferences).

We predominately use “session” cookies which are not stored on your hard drive. Session cookies expire after two hours of inactivity or when you close your browser. Because of our use of cookies, we can deliver faster and more accurate results and a more personalised site experience. When you carry out a job search or apply online a large amount of data is processed by our system and transferred through each page of the search or application process. This information includes your job search criteria, data which identifies your Resume, covering letter, the job you are applying for, your right to work in the relevant country and the results of any questionnaire you have completed as part of the online application process as well as demographic information that is not unique to you. “Session” cookies allow us to keep track of this data until you have completed your search or application. We also use cookies to identify users who have been banned from using our forums for behaviour which contradicts our terms of use and to track click streams, for load balancing and to enable you to navigate through the site using redirection pages.

We use “persistent” cookies primarily to ensure that we do not show you pages that you have already seen and to personalise your site experience and save you time. “Persistent” Cookies enable us to recognise whether you have responded to any poll or seen an advertisement or information notice placed on the site so that we do not show you the poll, advertisement or notice again the next time you visit our site. If you have an alliance arrangement in place with ‘Environment Jobs’ we also use “persistent” cookies to recall your alliance status and display your correct pricing information when you access our site. If you register on our site by using your Microsoft Passport user name and password a “persistent” cookie allows us to access and store information in your Passport account profile so you can login to our site faster. This information is treated in accordance with the policies and practices described in our Privacy Statement above. The “persistent” cookies we use will remain on your computer after you have left our site and will expire when you log out of the Site or 60 days after your last visit for security cookies, 90 days after your last visit for poll response and alliance cookies, one year after your last visit for Microsoft passport user cookies or two years after your last visit for advertisement and information notice cookies.

In addition, third party advertisers on the website may use “cookies”. ‘Environment Jobs’ has no control over, and is not responsible for, the practices of those third party advertisers. ‘Environment Jobs’ encourages you to review the policies of such advertisers.

You may have the ability to accept or decline cookies at any time. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline all cookies if you prefer. Alternatively, you may be able to modify your browser setting to notify you each time a cookie is tendered and permit you to accept or decline cookies on an individual basis. If you choose to decline cookies, however, that may hinder performance and negatively impact your experience on the website.
