Trovu's Privacy Policy

In this document, we explain our policies for how we handle information about you that we gather, store and use. If you want additional information about your relationship with Trovu, please refer to our Terms and Conditions.
In this document, “Personal Information” means the same as it does in the Privacy Act 1993 (which is: information about an identifiable individual). Other terms that have capital letters in this Privacy Policy but aren't defined here carry the same meaning as in the Terms and Conditions.

For example, we use Google Analytics to track viewership throughout the site. We require any third party that becomes involved with is to undertake strict precautions to protect your information against unauthorised use or disclosure.
  2. Your job postings
    1. When you create a job file, you choose what information becomes publicly available by completing the fields that are given for you to complete. Most of these fields do have a requirement to complete them attached but this is solely to provide the prospective employee with the knowledge they may need before applying for the job, if the fields are not filled out then the job will fail to be posted.
    2. The content you have completed during the job posting stage becomes public once you publish the job file through our service. Job postings may appear on other websites and media devices.
    3. We retain all job files after they have expired. File content may also persist elsewhere when third parties access and cache listings while they are live. For example, Google do this when they index the web for searching and so old listings may appear in Google searches for a period of time.
    4. In certain cases, we have commercial arrangements with third parties to display or use job file content.
    5. We may use your job file content to promote your job to other members on the Website, or more broadly, such as through display advertising, in electronic direct mail and on social media.
