The number of page views (or page impressions) that occur on Peeplmatch; The number of unique visitors to Peeplmatch; How long these unique visitors (on average) spend on Peeplmatch when they do visit; and Common entry and exit points into Peeplmatch.

Collecting information on Peeplmatch Registered Users As part of registering with Peeplmatch, we collect personal information about Registered Users in order for Registered Users to take full advantage of Peeplmatch's services. To do this it will be necessary for Registered Users to provide additional information to Peeplmatch.
Unless required to apply for a specific job advertisement, registration on the Site is completely optional. However, registration for My Activity services allows you to take advantage of more of the tools, services and resources that may assist you in finding a job. To become a Registered User you will need to submit some personal information such as your name and email address. You may access your information at any time by clicking 'Profile' on 'the Site'. Peeplmatch may also use this information in order to customise the service we provide to you. For example, Peeplmatch may use this information to create a Peeplmatch Profile that you may choose to use in the future. We will never activate this Peeplmatch Profile (or any other service) without your express consent.
Peeplmatch provides all Registered Users with the option of creating a personal Peeplmatch Profile ('Peeplmatch Profile'). A Peeplmatch Profile can include a resume, employment and educational history, contact details, minimum salary expectations, and preferred job classifications and locations. Advertisers are able to search Peeplmatch's Profile database to find and contact relevant candidates. Peeplmatch provides Registered Users with a number of privacy options in relation to the access granted by Peeplmatch to Advertisers in respect of their Peeplmatch Profiles and Registered Users can elect how much of their Peeplmatch profile they wish to share (if any) with Advertisers based on the following privacy settings:
Standard Your Peeplmatch Profile, except for your resume and contact details, can be seen by Advertisers searching the Peeplmatch Profile database, and if an Advertiser wishes to purchase access to your Peeplmatch Profile, your full Peeplmatch Profile including your resume and contact details will be emailed immediately to the relevant Advertiser.
Limited Your Peeplmatch Profile, except for your resume and contact details, can be seen by Advertisers searching Peeplmatch's Profile database, however Advertisers cannot access your resume.
Hidden Your Peeplmatch Profile is completely hidden (thereby preventing Advertisers from viewing your Peeplmatch Profile). Your Peeplmatch Profile will be stored in the 'Profile' area of the Site and you may alter the privacy settings at any time. If you have a standard or limited Peeplmatch Profile then Advertisers searching Peeplmatch's Profile database may also elect to send you a copy of a job opportunity for which they are recruiting, (by using the "send job" function), or send you a customised email about a job opportunity, (by using the "message") function. Advertisers who use either of these functions do not, by using those functions, receive access to any of your personal information. All information provided when creating a Peeplmatch Profile (including your name, resume, email address, telephone numbers, employment and educational history) may be used by Peeplmatch for the purpose of improving placement opportunities for you or for tailoring specific products to you. Registered Users can modify their resume at any time, or modify the privacy options in relation to their Peeplmatch Profile at any time, by going to the Profile area of the Site. You may also elect to clear your Peeplmatch Profile altogether. Cleared Peeplmatch Profiles may still however be stored by Peeplmatch in testing or backup systems for a period of time. Peeplmatch reserves the right to disable or clear a Peeplmatch Profile at its sole discretion (for example if information is found or believed to be untrue or being stored for improper purposes). Where Peeplmatch takes such action, we will delete and no longer hold your information.

Making an online application to a job advertisement on Peeplmatch is a free and optional service that in some cases may require registration as a Registered User. Job applications require users to complete mandatory fields (for example first name, last name, phone and email) so that the Advertiser can identify and contact the applicant. Registered Users have the option of easily attaching a saved resume. When you apply for a job advertisement on the site applications, including attachments and cover letters, are: forwarded directly on to the Advertiser and/or its nominated representative; or stored in the Peeplmatch Advertiser Centre on behalf of the Advertiser. The Peeplmatch Advertiser Centre allows Advertisers to easily and effectively manage their recruitment process via one central facility made available by Peeplmatch.

The use of your information (personal or otherwise) by these Advertisers is not within the control of Peeplmatch and we cannot accept responsibility for the conduct of these companies.
