We may collect and hold personal information about you, that is, information that can identify you, and is relevant to providing you with the services you are seeking.

Information we collect

VIP Apps Consulting collects personal data on certain areas of the website when you register for or apply for jobs through the careers page, download documents from our Resource page and/or participate in public user posting areas. The personal data collected varies across the Sites and may include information that you provide, such as your name,  e-mail address, country, company name, telephone number and background information required to apply for a job.

We may also automatically collect information about the devices you use to interact with our Sites. The information we automatically collect may include IP address, device identifier, web browser, and browsing information collected through cookies, web beacons, pixels, clear gifs, and other similar technologies (collectively “Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies”) on our Sites. The information provided throughout this Privacy Policy about cookies also applies to these other tracking technologies. Please refer to our Cookie Policy and Other Tracking Technologies for more details regarding our use of cookies.

Purpose of collection

The personal information that we collect and hold about you, depends on your interaction with us. Generally, we will collect, use and hold your personal information for the purposes of:

(a) providing services to you or someone else you know;
(b) providing you with information about other services that we, our related entities and other organisations that we have affiliations with, offer that may be of interest to you;
(c) facilitating our internal business operations, including the fulfilment of any legal requirements; and
(d) analysing our services and customer needs with a view to developing new or improved services.
(e) recruit and evaluate job applicants,
(f) marketing

Marketing communications

We carry out email marketing activities using your personal information only send where you have consented to receive such marketing communications, or where we have a lawful right to do so. We analyse and use information that we observe about you from your interactions with our email communications to you and/or, with our Site with our Services such as the Services you have viewed.
Where you have given your consent (where lawfully required), we use cookies, log files and other technologies to collect personal information from the computer hardware and software you use to access the Site, or from your mobile.  Our web pages contain “cookies” “web beacons” or “pixel tags” (“Tags”). These allow us to track receipt of an email to you, to count users that have visited a web page or opened an email and collect other types of aggregate information. Once you click on an email that contains a Tag, your contact information may subsequently be cross-referenced to the source email and the relevant Tag.
In some of our email messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to certain website administered by us or on our behalf. By using this information, we are able to measure the effectiveness of our content and how visitors use our Site and our Services. This allows us to learn what pages of our Site are most attractive to our visitors, which parts of our Site are the most interesting and what kind of offers our registered users like to see.

Method of collection

Personal information will generally be collected directly from you through the use of any of our standard forms, over the internet, via email, or through a telephone conversation with you. There may, however, be some instances where personal information about you will be collected indirectly because it is unreasonable or impractical to collect personal information directly from you. We will usually notify you about these instances in advance, or where that is not possible, as soon as reasonably practicable after the information has been collected.

Failure to provide information

If the personal information you provide to us is incomplete or inaccurate, we may be unable to provide you, or someone else you know, with the services you, or they, are seeking.

Data retention policy

We retain personal data, as necessary, for the duration of the relevant business relationship. We may also retain personal data for longer than the duration of the business relationship should we need to retain it to protect ourselves against legal claims, use it for analysis or historical record-keeping, or comply with our information management policies and schedules. 
For visitors to the Site, we will retain relevant personal information for at least three years from the date of our last interaction with you and in compliance with our obligations under the EU General Data Protection Regulation or similar legislation around the world, or for longer if we are required to do so according to our regulatory obligations or professional indemnity obligations.
For requests for access, corrections, or deletion, please refer to the pertaining sections in this Privacy Policy
