We gather information about our Website users collectively, such as what areas users visit most frequently and what services users access the most. We only use such data anonymously and in the aggregate. This information helps us determine what is most beneficial for our users, and how we can continually create a better overall experience for you.

We collect, use and retain your personal information to facilitate job searches and applications through our Job-search Portal, professional training and skills upgrading through our e-Learning Platform, and to facilitate your use of our Forum, as well as facilitating the provision or purchase of other services or products by us.
For example, when you sign up to use a service, enter into a contest, or purchase a product, we may collect and retain personal information about you such as your name, address, email address, telephone number, credit card number, qualifications or career history. We may also collect and retain sensitive information about you such as information about your membership in a professional or trade association or trade union.
We may also ask you for other information, such as information on your interests, your likes and dislikes regarding the Website, the types of jobs you are interested in, etc., in an effort to deliver to you the best possible Website experience. If you consent to our collection and use of your personal information, we will communicate with you regularly with tips, advice and survey information on using the MyTechLogy.Com Website to maximise your career development. MyTechLogy.Com also provides you with the opportunity to opt-out of these types of communications. If you choose to receive these types of communications at the time of registration, but later decide you no longer want to receive them, simply log in to your MyTechLogy.Com account and edit your profile.
You are not required to provide us with personal information. However, without sufficient personal information, MyTechLogy.Com may be limited in its ability to provide you with relevant content or services.
Additionally, third party advertisers may collect information about your use of the site, such as the links you click on, number of visits, geographical location and online behaviour. You understand and agree that we exercise no control over such third party advertisers and their collection, use or disclosure of your personal information. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of these third party advertisers so you can understand how they collect, use and share your information.
Use Of Personal Information
We use the information we gather on the Website to identify you when you access the Website, respond to queries or requests submitted by you, process requests or applications submitted by you, or to fulfil any other reasonable purpose which may, in our ultimate discretion, be necessary. We also use the information for the purposes of operating and improving the Website, fostering a positive user experience, and delivering the products and services that we offer.
If you have provided consent for us to do so, we may use the information we gather to inform you of other products or services available from us or our affiliated companies or to contact you about your opinion of current products and services, or about potential new products and services that may be offered.
We may also use your contact information in order to send you e-mail or other communications regarding updates at the Website, or to contact you about your opinion of current products and services or potential new products and services that may be offered. We may also provide additional communications, promotions and information on new opportunities and additional job postings which may be of interest to you. The nature and frequency of these messages will vary depending upon the information we have about you.
Disclosure of Personal Information
We may disclose your resume to third party employers who have posted job opportunities that may be of interest to you on the Website when you use the Website to submit your resume for those jobs. When you submit your resume in response to a job posting, a copy of the resume is provided to the third party employer that posted the job opportunity. You are aware and understand that we do not, and are unable to, exercise control over the manner in which third party employers utilize your personal information. You are deemed to have consented to our disclosure of your resume to relevant third party employers by using the Website to submit your resume.
In addition to the above, if you voluntarily provide personal information to us or to third parties by way of the Website, you understand and agree that you are deemed to have consented to our collection, use or disclosure of your personal information as necessary to carry out the purposes for which you provided the information. For example, if you disclose personal information in the "Reviews/Blogs" section of the Website and encourage other users to contact you for further information regarding your review, you are deemed to have consented to the Website publishing your post, containing the voluntarily-provided personal information, in order to carry out your intended communication. By voluntarily posting personal information on the Website, you also understand and agree that you are deemed to consent to other users sharing your post with third parties, whether by using the "Share" functionality provided by the Website, or by using direct links to pages on the Website, or in any other manner.
We may disclose information to relevant third parties if you have consented to such disclosure. For example, if you indicate that you would like to receive information about the opportunities, products or services of third parties at the time you register for a MyTechLogy.Com account, we will supply your contact information to third parties such as employers, recruiters, data aggregators, marketers or others for the purpose of sending you e-mail or otherwise communicating with you. We use data we have about you (such as the interests and preferences you have expressed) to determine whether you might be interested in the opportunities, products or services of a particular third-party.
We disclose information to companies and individuals we employ to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include hosting our web servers, data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. These companies and individuals will have access to your personal information as may be necessary to perform their functions, but they will not share that information with third parties.
We will disclose information if legally required to do so, if requested to do so by a governmental entity 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 our rights or property or our 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 information to a third party in the process of acquiring all or a substantial portion of our 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 we become the subject of a bankruptcy proceeding, whether voluntary or involuntary, we or our trustee in bankruptcy may sell, license or otherwise dispose of such information in a transaction approved by the bankruptcy court. You will be notified of sale of all or a substantial portion of our business to a third party via e-mail or through a prominent notice posted on the Website.
You can exercise control over the collection, use and disclosure of personal information in relation to specific functions of the Website by logging into your account and enabling or disabling functions in your account preferences. By enabling functions in your account preferences, you are deemed to have consented to the collection, use and disclosure of any personal information as necessary to carry out the function you have enabled. If at any time you choose to withdraw consent to the collection, use or disclosure of personal information in relation to a specific function on the Website, you may disable it in your account preferences.
We give you the option of putting your resume in our database.
There are two ways of utilizing your resume in our database:
1. You can store your resume in our database, but not allow it to be searchable by potential employers or recruiters. 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.
2. You can allow your resume to be searchable by employers, recruiters, hiring managers, head-hunters, and human resource professionals who pay for access to our resume database and your resume. When you opt to make your resume searchable, you still have the choice to make your personal details confidential where all of your contact information and even your current place of employment can remain hidden. We use our best efforts to restrict access to our database only to those who have paid for access; these parties may retain a copy of your resume in their own files or databases. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that parties other than those mentioned above will not, without our consent, gain access to this database. However MyTechLogy.Com is not responsible for the retention, use, or privacy of resumes by third parties. You agree that we may share your information with our affiliated companies. You may remove your resume from our searchable database at any time.
Updating Account Information
We wish to ensure your personal information is complete, accurate and up to date. MyTechLogy.Com allows you to change or correct your personal information at any time. To do so, simply log into your MyTechLogy.Com account and you will find options for editing the information you have submitted.
Access to Personal Information
You can gain access to the personal information you have provided by visiting our Website. If you need assistance to log in you can contact us by emailing enquiry@MyTechLogy.com. If you have not accessed your resume for some time we may also contact you to check your information is still correct.
A request for access to the personal information we hold about you, to correct or update your personal information, to withdraw your consent for our collection, use or disclosure of your personal information, or in relation to an inquiry about privacy or compliance with personal data protection regulations, should be sent to enquiry@MyTechLogy.com. You may also request for information about the ways in which personal data has been or may have been used by the organisation within the past 1 year from the date of your request. You may delete your resume from MyTechLogy.Com's online database and/or deactivate your account at any time.
Withdrawal of Consent
You may, at any time, revoke consent for us to collect, use or disclose your personal information. Withdrawal of consent may be facilitated by deactivating your Website account. By doing so, you will no longer be able to utilize the services provided by the Website as such services are by their nature dependent on the collection, use or disclosure of personal information.
Retention of Personal Information
A user's personal information in our possession, power or control shall be deleted one month from deactivation of the respective user's account. Please bear in mind that if you have submitted personal information to prospective third party employers through our Job-search Portal, you will need to approach the third party employers directly to delete your personal information.
We take all reasonable precautions to keep your personal data secure. Personal information used in online purchases from the Website is scrambled using Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") encryption technology before being sent over the Internet. When we receive your order, it is kept encrypted until we are ready to process it. SSL makes it difficult for your information to be stolen or intercepted while being transferred. Although we remain committed to keeping your personal data secure, you understand and agree that we cannot guarantee the successful encryption or the privacy of your personal details and credit card information.
The information you provide is stored on the MyTechLogy.Com database. When providing information you agree this may be stored in our databases, which may be located internationally. To ensure the safety of your personal data, our web hosts encrypt information during transmission using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software.
MyTechLogy.Com may provide an area on the Website where you can submit feedback. Any feedback that is submitted through this area becomes the property of MyTechLogy.Com. We may use this feedback at any time for any purposes, such as success stories for marketing purposes, or to contact you for further feedback on the Website. By submitting feedback, you are deemed to have consented to our use and/or disclosure of your feedback for the improvement and/or promotion of the Website.
