We offer user registration to make it as easy as possible for you to apply online for volunteering and job opportunities. When you register your interest in a job or volunteering opportunity, we will forward your details to the recruiter. If the opportunity is advertised through a broker, such as a Volunteer Centre (Organisation) or recruitment agency, your details will be available to both the broker and the organisation providing the opportunity in order to take your application forward.
We will also hold this information ourselves, to allow you to register your interest in another opportunity without having to complete a new form. Apart from the above reasons, your information will never be passed on to any other organisation without your permission unless we are legally obliged to do so.
We will supply you with contact details for the organisation that your enquiry is sent to. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other organisations you deal with or sites that you visit.
We ask for information about disability and ethnicity to help us, the opportunity provider and the opportunity host with equal opportunities monitoring. By choosing to submit this information you consent to the processing of this information by us and these organisations. Information you provide is also collated to help us to demonstrate our impact to funders and develop our service to further meet users' needs. Unless you choose to tick the relevant boxes, you will not receive further mailings other than a reply to your enquiry from the opportunity provider or opportunity host. If you would like to stop receiving further mailings from us, you can uncheck the relevant box on your profile. You can also choose to delete your account. Your details are automatically removed from our database if you have not used your account for more than three years. We will also remove your details if we are unable to contact you or you do not confirm your email address.
You are entitled to ask for a copy of the information we store about you.
If you have any concerns or questions please contact us.
