This statement discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for all sites managed by HealthTimes.
Collecting information on HEALTHTIMES visitors
HEALTHTIMES collects information on our site visitors collectively including which sections of the site are most frequently visited, how often and for how long. This data is always used as aggregated, non-personal information. HEALTHTIMES utilises this information to improve and enhance our services by monitoring the areas on the site which are most popular to you. This aggregated information may be shared with HEALTHTIMES partners to provide them with an overview of how HEALTHTIMES visitors use the site. This is done for the purposes of providing you with the best online career management services.
Cookies & Applets
Users who do not wish to receive cookies can instruct their web browsers to refuse them. However, doing so will prevent access to some areas of the site and limit your use of some of the HEALTHTIMES services.
Collecting information on HEALTHTIMES Registered ‘My Account’ Members
As part of registering with HEALTHTIMES, we collect personal information about you in order for you to take full advantage of HEALTHTIMES’s services. To do this it may be necessary for you to provide additional information to HEALTHTIMES as detailed below.
Registration is completely optional. However, registration for ‘My Account’ services allows you to take advantage of more of the tools and resources that assist you in finding a job. Registration includes submitting your email address. You may access this information at any time by clicking ‘My Account’, or by clicking here.
Job Alerts are an optional service. HEALTHTIMES requests that you provide information relating to your employment preferences as well as your email address so that we may notify you via email of jobs specific to your needs. Users can modify or delete their Job Alert preferences at any time by going to the ‘My Account’ area of the site.
As part of the online job service, HEALTHTIMES provides registered members with the option of creating a resume to use for application. You may also choose to allow HEALTHTIMES clients to view your resume.
Making an online application to a job advertisement on HEALTHTIMES is a free and optional service that does not require registration. Job applications require you to complete mandatory fields (first name, last name, phone and email) so that the advertiser can identify and contact you. Your application, including attachments and cover letters, are forwarded directly on to the third party advertiser. This information may also be disclosed to HEALTHTIMES’s service providers and contractors from time to time who assist us to deliver our products and services.
By applying to a position advertised on HEALTHTIMES you are requesting that HEALTHTIMES pass the information to the Advertiser as a part of your application.
Additionally, you have the right to request your personal information direct from Advertisers on HEALTHTIMES.
Email communications from HEALTHTIMES
HEALTHTIMES also provides you with selected information about career-related topics in our email newsletter. This free service is sent to registered users and provides the option of un-subscripting on the newsletter email. HEALTHTIMES may also make you aware of additional products and services which form part of your relationship with HEALTHTIMES.
Storage & Security of Personal Information
HEALTHTIMES takes all reasonable steps to ensure the security of our system. HEALTHTIMES allows you to access your information at any time to keep it accurate and up to date. Any information which we hold for you is stored on secure servers that are protected in controlled facilities.
In addition, our employees and the contractors who provide services related to our information systems are obliged to respect the confidentiality of any personal information held by HEALTHTIMES. However, HEALTHTIMES will not be held responsible for events arising from unauthorised access of your personal information.
You can also play an important role in keeping your personal information secure, by maintaining the confidentiality of any password and accounts used on the HEALTHTIMES site. Please notify us immediately if there is any unauthorised use of your account by any other Internet user or any other breach of security.
Access to Your Information
Unless you become a registered ‘My Account’ user, HEALTHTIMES does not collect information that identifies you personally. If however, you become a HEALTHTIMES registered user, you are able to change and update your registered profile at any time. Should you require assistance with updating your account or removing your details from the site, this can be requested by forwarding an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also request your personal information directly from Advertisers who you have applied to on the site.
HEALTHTIMES Partners & Advertisers
You may also directly contact advertisers to request access to any personal information that you have sent as part of an application.
Credit Card Details
While HEALTHTIMES does provide credit card payment options for our advertisers, we do not store cardholder credit card details. Credit card payment facilities on the HealthTimes.com.au website are provided by eWAY. HEALTHTIMES does not control the credit card detail privacy mechanisms. For confirmation on eWAY’s privacy measures, please visit their website at www.eway.com.au.
Transborder data flows
Sometimes, we transfer information to persons outside Australia (e.g. a contractor located in the USA who provides us with services). By giving us your personal information, you consent to such disclosures. In addition, we believe that the recipients of such information are subject to a law, binding scheme or contract which effectively upholds principles for fair handling of the information that are substantially similar to the National Privacy Principles.
HEALTHTIMES welcomes ideas and feedback about all aspects of the site. HEALTHTIMES stores feedback that users send to us. This feedback will be used to administer and refine the service and may be shared with HEALTHTIMES partners either in aggregate form or with specific identifying characteristics removed.
