Bobbll

Privacy Policy

Bobll Ltd ("Bobbll") is committed to protecting the privacy and security of our registered users and visitors and this notice explains the ways in which we collect and use data through our app and website (https://www.bobbll.com) and dealings with you. If you have any questions, please contact us on info@bobbll.com

For all our services Bobbll Ltd (which is incorporated in Scotland under registered number SC637487) is the data controller – the company that is responsible for your privacy.

What information do we collect & How do we use it and most importantly, why.

Our mission is to facilitate the filling of job vacancies. Our platform therefore operates as an online platform to help employers and those seeking employment engage. You may do so as a registered user ("user") and by registering agree to share your identity and information which you post to the platform as information which may be shared in a public or restricted manner dependent upon the type of information and your account settings.

We collect, and you provide us with, various pieces of personal information, which we may use in several different ways. The following sections set out what we do and why we do it.


Setting up an account

When you set up an account with us we need you to provide data including your name, email address and/or mobile number and a password. If you wish to advertise vacancies for a position then you will register as an employer and as we charge for some services provided to employers you will also need to provide payment and billing information[, such as credit card details].

You will then create a profile which will provide further information about you. You will be required to submit certain mandatory information in order to use the service and some information will be optional to include, but the more information you provide the more you may get out of our services as it will enable us to match you or your vacancy more accurately. Any information you add to your profile will, however, be publicly available and so while you may edit your profile at any time, you should not post or add any personal data to your profile that you would not want to be shared publicly.

You don't have to post or add any other information or data to the platform, but if you don't it may restrict the benefit you will receive from our services.

You may not be able to use paid-for services from the platform or receive an optimal user experience if you withhold certain information or opt out of various communications types and methods. However, we will do our best to honour your decisions and will always work to uphold strict policies and processes to protect your data.

We also take steps to anonymise and aggregate personal information (so that it does not identify you) and use it for purposes including IT systems, research, data analysis, improving our website and other online properties, and developing new services.

The platform also allows the viewing and sharing of information through posting and other actions such as likes, swipes, follows and comments – anything which you post to the platform or upload will be viewed by anyone and can be re-shared anywhere unless you set your settings to prevent this.

Marketing messages

If you register an account with Bobbll, we think knowing about the services we can offer is a fundamental benefit of your account. When you register, we will send you our newsletter and other marketing messages unless you ask us not to, which you can do immediately or at any time.

We may send you our newsletter and/or marketing messages by email, post, text and/or push notification to keep you aware of the latest news from Bobbll. You can choose whether or not to receive them in any of these ways by using your Account Settings on the platform or by getting in touch with us.


How to stop Marketing Messages

Once you have done this we will make sure your profile is updated and you don't receive unwanted marketing materials from us. Please note, due to our technical set up, the impacts of any changes may take up to 48 hours to take effect – in the meantime we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Advertising online

Bobbll engages in online advertising to attract new members, to keep you aware of what we are up to and to help you find and see our services.

Like many other businesses, we target banners and ads to you when you are on other websites, applications and search engines. This is done using a variety of digital marketing techniques including ad exchanges and marketing networks using several advertising technologies like web beacons, pixels, ad tags, cookies and/or mobile identifiers, as well as specific services offered by some sites and social networks. We adhere to all advertiser policies and stick to strict rules and regulations set out by relevant advertising standards bodies.

The banners and ads you will see are based on information we hold about you, or your previous use of our platform. This includes information from the profiles or services you may have browsed on the platform, the content you have engaged with or the advertising you may have previously responded to.

Keeping your information and transfers


Retention

We shall retain information for as long as is necessary to provide the service, meet legal or regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse or enforce our terms and conditions.

At any point you can contact us at info@bobbll.com and request that we remove all data relating to you from our records.
