1. Definitions

This Statement has been prepared by JOBGURUS Services

JOBGURUS owns and operates the website located at www.jobgurus.com.ng (across desktop, mobile, tablet and apps and including any subdomains) ("the Site"). This Statement discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for the Site.

In this Statement, any reference to “JOBGURUS", "we", "us" and "our" includes a reference to JOBGURUS Services.

Users who log on to the Site but do not create an account are referred to generically in this Statement as "users" or "you".

Users who register on the Site to obtain services offered by JOBGURUS are referred to as "Registered Users". Unless the context provides otherwise, references in this Statement to "users" or "you" include references to generic users and Registered Users.


2. Information Collected by JOBGURUS

JOBGURUS collects user information from several areas of the site without limitation, including the 'Membership Registration' area, which sections of the Site are most frequently visited, how often, and for how long. Data are always used as aggregated information, and may be shared with JOBGURUS partners to provide them with information relating to how JOBGURUS visitors 'use' the Site.


3. Collecting information on JOBGURUS? Registered Users

As part of registering with JOBGURUS, we collect personal information about Registered Users in order for Registered Users to take full advantage of JOBGURUS's services. To do this, it will be necessary for Registered Users to provide additional information to JOBGURUS.


4. Registration

Registration on the Site is completely optional, but you need to register on the Site in order to submit a job application. To become a Registered User you will need to submit some personal information including your email address. You may access your information at any time by clicking 'Personal Information' on 'the Site' after signing into the Site.


5.Storing your CV

Registered Users may elect to store their CV in their 'Career Summary' area, and use the CV when applying for a job. Deleting a CV from the 'Career Summary' area will mean it is no longer accessible to the Registered User. Deleted records may still be stored by JOBGURUS in testing or backup systems for a period of time.


6. JOBGURUS Profile

All Registered Users have a personal JOBGURUS Profile ('JOBGURUS Profile') upon successful registration. A JOBGURUS Profile can include a CV, personal information, employment and educational history, contact details, minimum salary expectations, skills, preferred job specializations and locations. Advertisers are able to search JOBGURUS's Profile database to find and contact relevant candidates.

Registered Users can modify their CV at any time, or modify their personal, education and work experience details in relation to their JOBGURUS Profile at any time, by going to the Profile area of the Site.


7. Use of Information Collected:

Collected information helps JOBGURUS understand its users' needs better, in order to improve its product and service offerings. Personal information may be used to contact users for the purpose of research, product development, marketing, or customer service, if the user has opted to receive such communication. JOBGURUS may make personal information on CVs as well as other supplied information available to recruiters on a need basis where the intended use is to make available job opportunities to users. JOBGURUS will not be held liable for any alternative use of such information by any individual or organization. User search activity is collected and analyzed and may be utilized by JOBGURUS in the aggregate or in the abstract for a variety of business purposes.


8. Online Applications

Making an online application to a job advertisement on JOBGURUS is a free service that requires registration (to become a Registered User). Job applications require users to complete mandatory fields (first name, last name, phone, email, location, year of experience and latest employment) so that the Advertiser can identify and contact the applicant. Registered Users have the option of easily applying with a saved CV and uploading a cover letter.

This information may also be disclosed to JOBGURUS'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 JOBGURUS you are requesting that JOBGURUS pass the information to the relevant Advertiser. Any questions you have relating to a position advertised on JOBGURUS, your online application and/or the status of your application should be directed to the Advertiser or their nominated agent, not JOBGURUS. JOBGURUS's role in the online application process is limited to forwarding your online application to the Advertiser, and storing it on their behalf (if requested to do so).
