By submitting your personal data to us, visiting our website and engaging in our services here or via any other third-party platforms or form submissions, you are consenting to CareerSocius and the relevant personnel collecting, using and disclosing your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Notice. Please note that if you do not agree to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information in this way, please do not use this website or otherwise provide us with your personal information. In most cases, we will ask for your consent explicitly, except for some cases where we may infer consent from your actions and behaviour and process your personal information in a way that will infringe on your rights and interests. In some circumstances, you may have provided personal data relating to other individuals (such as your spouse, family members or other third party including minors). You represent and warrant that you are authorised to provide their personal data to us and you have obtained their consent to the collection, use, disclosure and processing of their Personal Data in accordance with this Notice.




Children - under 13 years old


Our website or services are not aimed at children under 13 years of age and we will not collect, use, provide or process any personal information of children under the age of 13 deliberately. We highly recommend, if you are under 13 years old, that you do not send us your personal information (for example, your name, contact, email address or residential address). However, if you are under 13 years old and you would like to ask a question or use this website or engage our service in anyway that requires you to give us your personal information, please get your parent or guardian to do so on your behalf. If we discover that we have collected information from a child without consent from a parent or guardian, we will delete that information as soon as possible.

Your "personal information" refers to information that could allow you to be identified. This typically includes the following: Your name, contact number, email address, residential address, profile picture, and information about your preferences such as your interests. With regard to career-related services (e.g. Branding Services), we collect information on your work experience, educational background and any content that you put on your resume, cover letter or LinkedIn profile.




Purpose of collecting your personal information


We collect your information for the main purpose of:
1) Providing you our products or services that you have requested from us.
2) To contact you regarding our products or services that may be of interest to you, provided we have received your consent to do so in a form of subscription request on our website or through any surveys or forms provided to you from us. 3) To improve on our products and services, and to improve your user experience.




Security of your personal information


We have implemented relevant and appropriate measures to protect your privacy from any unauthorised access, modification and misuse from any authorized or unauthorized personnel and will review and update these measures as and when appropriate. Access to your personal information is only permitted among our company personnel, including our resume writers (i.e. Branding Buddies) in the provision of branding services, on a need-to-know basis.
