    Personal Information is collected in the following ways:


      When you create an account with PreviewMe we collect information including your name, email address and password. You may provide additional information during the registration process, your postal and/or current address or location, job title and company name. Collectively, this information that you provide is the “Registration Information”.

      To create an account on PreviewMe you must provide the Registration Information and agree to the User Agreement, the Role Publishing User Agreement (if applicable) and this Privacy Policy which govern how we treat your Registration Information. This Registration Information is used to help you build your PreviewMe profile and to provide you with more customized services, such as matching you with Roles (as defined in the Role Publishing User Agreement), updates and notifications. You understand that by registering as a Member, we and other Members (subject to your account privacy settings) will be able to identify you by your PreviewMe profile.


      We collect personal information when you fill out your PreviewMe profile. You can complete the PreviewMe profile at anytime after registration. You may choose to populate your profile with additional information such as description of your skills, employment history, and educational background. This can be provided as a mix of textual or visual (photographic and video) content.

      We collect this information to simplify the application process when you apply for a Role and provide it to the Employer Member in a manner completely controlled by you.

      We may also provide recommendations to you about companies to engage with and follow, Roles that we consider match your criteria and other updates and notifications. Providing additional information enables you to derive more benefit from our Services by helping you express yourself to find Roles.


      We collect personal information when you contact our customer support team.

      When you contact our customer support services, we may have to access your account to respond to your questions and if applicable, investigate any breach of the PreviewMe User Agreement, Role Publishing User Agreement or this Privacy Policy. We also use this personal information to track potential problems and trends and customize our support responses to better serve you. We do not use this personal information for advertising.


      We collect personal information when you use the Website, applications, platform technologies or other Services (whether as a Member or a Visitor). For example, we collect personal information when you click on Employer Member profiles, follow Employer Members, install our applications onto mobile devices or apply for Roles through our Service. If you are logged into your PreviewMe account or one of our cookies on your device identifies you, your usage information and log data (described below) such as your IP address, will be associated by us with your account even if you are not logged into a Service or your PreviewMe account. We log information about devices used to access our Services, including IP addresses.

    5. COOKIES

      We use cookies and similar technologies that can identify details of your IP address, device platform (e.g. Windows, Mac OS, iOS or Android), browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Edge, Safari, Chrome or other, plus the version of browser), domain (whether you are accessing the Services from New Zealand or elsewhere) and other user information (e.g. your username) to collect information.

      We use cookies and similar technologies, including mobile application identifiers, to help us recognize you across different Services, learn about your interests both on and off our Services, improve your experience, increase security, measure use and improve the effectiveness of our Services.

    8. OTHER

      We are constantly innovating to improve our Services and your experience which means we may create new ways to collect information on the Services in the future. Our Services are a dynamic, innovative environment and we are always improving the Services we offer you. We often introduce new features, some of which may result in the collection of new information. Furthermore, new partnerships or corporate acquisitions may result in new features, and we may potentially collect new types of information.

      If PreviewMe starts collecting substantially new types of personal information and materially change how we handle your personal information and other content you introduce to the Services, we will modify this Privacy Policy and notify you.



      Information you provide on your profile can be seen by others and used by us as described in this Privacy Policy, our User Agreement and Role Publishing User Agreement.

      The personal information that you provide to us may reveal or allow others to identify aspects of your life that are not expressly stated on your profile. By providing personal information to us when you create or update your account and profile, you are expressly and voluntarily accepting the terms and conditions of our User Agreement and freely accepting and agreeing to our processing of your personal information in the ways set out by this Privacy Policy.

      You can withdraw or modify your consent to our collection and use of the personal information you provide at any time in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy and User Agreement and Role Publishing User Agreement by changing your account settings or your profile on PreviewMe or by closing your PreviewMe account in accordance with clause 3.1.


      We communicate with you through electronic mail, notifications published on the Website or partner websites, messages to your PreviewMe inbox and other means available through the Service, including mobile text messages and push notifications.

      We may send you messages relating to the availability of the Services, security, or other service-related issues. You agree that we may also may send promotional messages to your PreviewMe inbox.


      With certain communications you send on our Services, the recipient can see your name, email address, and some network information.

      Many communications that Members initiate through our Services will list your name in the primary header of the message. Messages you initiate may also provide the recipient with aggregate information about you or, if communicating from an Employer Member account, the company you represent.

      Full profile information is private by design until the Member applies for a Role published by an Employer Member with the Employer Member then having access to your PreviewMe profile URL.


      We may use personal information provided by you in an anonymised aggregated form to conduct research and development, generate reports and analytics, and to customize your experience and try to make it relevant and useful to you.

      We may use personal information that you and other Members provide to us to improve our Services in order to provide you and other Members and visitors with a better and more intuitive experience, drive membership growth and engagement on our Service.

      We also customize your experience on our Services. For example, when you sign into your account, we may display new Role Publications (as defined in the Role Publishing User Agreement) or Employer Members in your account for you to view, apply and / or follow. We try to show you content that is relevant to you based on the information you have provided us in accordance with this Privacy Policy.


      Any personal information you put on your profile or you provide to a prospective employer (whether in relation to a particular Role or not) may be seen by others.

      We do not provide any of your non-public personal information to third parties without your consent, unless required by law or as set out in this Privacy Policy.

      Any of our affiliates may assist us with the operation of the Service including the processing and storage of any information and exercising any of our rights under this Privacy Policy, the User Agreement and the Role Publishing User Agreement. Accordingly, you acknowledge and agree that we may provide any of your personal information to any of our affiliates for that purpose.

      Candidate Member profiles on PreviewMe are private by default. Employer Member profiles are public by default. Where any part of a profile is made public, that public profile will be indexed and displayed through public search engines when someone searches the Member’s name (be it an individual or a company).


      We conduct our own surveys and polls and also help third parties do this type of research. Your participation in surveys or polls is up to you. You may opt in to or opt out of getting invitations to participate in surveys.

      We may use your personal information in an anonymised aggregated form to generate reports as part of our Service. The reports are designed to help our Employer Members and third parties conduct research and improve their service offerings. We also generate reports for Members looking for Roles. For example, we generate market data that can assist our Members’ understanding of the employment landscape in a particular industry, how a Member progressed through an application process for a Role or, we generate reports that identify skill shortages and skills obsolescence to feed into the education lifecycle. We gather analytics and generate these reports to improve the quality of our Service. You will not be personally identifiable in reports generated by us.


      Members may also search for Employer Members and Roles and filter Employer Members and Roles in a number of ways. The Employer Members cannot personally identify you when you search them.


      Employers can create profile pages on our Service after they have registered an Employer Member account. If you follow one of these pages and form part of the Employer Member’s profile page, you form part of that profile page’s “Community”. Non-identifiable information about you will be provided to the profile page’s administrator.

      Certain profile pages on the Service are public (such as the Employer Member pages). When following those profile pages as part of a Community, we use aggregate information about followers and viewers to provide data for reporting on such pages (performance, conversions, updates, visits, cut-through).


      When a Member carries out an action including viewing a Role Publication, an Employer Member profile or applying for a Role, the Member is given the choice to follow the Employer. This is different to saving a Role Publication on a watch list in your profile.

      In addition to clause 2.8, when you elect to follow an Employer Member and form part of that Employer Member’s Community, you can receive notifications and updates on that Employer Member. For example, you may get notifications about Roles or networking functions. These notifications are sent to your account. You can opt out of a Community at any time by adjusting the settings in your account.

      When you follow an Employer Member, that Employer Member may elect to search for skills amongst its Community for an upcoming Role. You will be notified if you have the skills that match the upcoming Role but you will not be personally identified.


      If you provide any testimonials about our Service, we may publish those testimonials from time to time. Testimonials may include your name (or company) and other personal information you have provided including the testimonial.


      We may need to disclose personal information, profile information, or information about your activities as a Member or Visitor when required by law, subpoena, or other legal process in New Zealand, Australia or other jurisdictions, or if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to:

      • investigate, prevent or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies;
      • enforce the User Agreement or Role Publication User Agreement, investigate and defend ourselves against any third party claims or allegations, or protect the security and integrity of our Service;
      • Exercise or protect the rights, property of safety of Members, personnel or others.
    12. We will attempt to notify the Member about legal demands for their personal information when appropriate in our judgement, unless prohibited by law or court order or when the request is an emergency. In light of our principles, we may dispute such demands at our discretion.


      If there is a change in control or sale of all or part of PreviewMe, we may share your personal information with a third party, who will have the right to use that personal information in line with this Privacy Policy.

      We may also disclose your personal information to a third party as part of a sale of the assets of PreviewMe, a subsidiary, a parent, or division, or as a result of a change in control of PreviewMe or one of our affiliates, or in preparation for any of these events.

      Any third party to which we transfer or sell our assets will have the right to continue to use the personal and other information that you provide to us in the manner set out in this Privacy Policy.


      We may employ third parties to help us with the Service.

      We may employ third party companies and individuals, such as Microsoft Azure, to facilitate our Services, including for maintenance, analysis, audit, marketing and development, video production. These third parties have access to your personal information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated to PreviewMe not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.


      We may transfer your personal information for the purpose of storage or processing outside New Zealand, wherever PreviewMe, its affiliates or its service providers operate.


      Any personal information provided to us will be collected and held by, or on behalf of, us at Microsoft’s data centres used by PreviewMe. We may use cloud providers or data centres (whether in New Zealand or overseas), to manage and store personal and other information we collect, and will ensure that any storage on such a platform provides adequate security measures.

      Refer to for more information on Microsoft’s compliance, security and cloud storage facilities.



      You can change your personal information at any time by editing your profile, deleting your personal information that you have uploaded or published, or by closing your account. You can also ask us for additional personal information we may have about you.

      You have the right to:

      • access, modify, correct, or delete your personal information controlled by PreviewMe regarding your profile or any other personal information we hold about you;
      • change or remove your content and personal information; and
      • close your account.
    2. You can request access to and/or correction of your personal information that is not viewable on your profile or readily accessible to you (such as your IP access logs) through PreviewMe’s help centre.

      If you close your account, your personal information will generally be removed from the Service within 48 hours. We generally delete closed account information and will de-personalize any logs or other backup information through the deletion process within 30 days of account closure except as noted below.

      Personal information you have shared with other Members or other entities (for example, personal information provided through the job application process or messaging prospective employers) or that other Members have copied and stored may also remain visible after you have closed your account or deleted the personal information from your own profile.

      We may not be able to provide you with access to, correct, or remove any information about you that other Members copied or exported out of our Service because this information may not be within our control. You can make such requests directly from Employer Members to whom you have applied via our Services.


      We retain the personal information you provide while your account is in existence or as needed to provide you with services. We may retain your personal information even after you have closed your account if retention is reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations, meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes between Members, prevent fraud or abuse, or enforce this Privacy Policy, our User Agreement or the Role Publishing User Agreement.

      We may retain personal information, for a limited period of time, if requested by law enforcement. Our Customer Service team may retain information for as long as necessary to provide support, related reporting and trend analysis only, but we generally delete or de-personalize closed account data.


    Our Services may contain links to and from websites that are not controlled by us. By using our Services, you may also provide your non-public personal information to third parties such as Employer Members receiving your Role applications. If you follow a link to any other website or provide your personal information to third parties, you should note that they have their own rules around privacy. We do not accept any responsibility or liability for anyone else’s policies or for any transactions that you enter into with them.



      We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make significant changes in the way we treat your personal information, or to the Privacy Policy, we will provide notice to you on the Services or by some other means. Please review the changes carefully.

      If you agree to the changes, simply continue to use the Service. If you object to any of the changes to our terms and you no longer wish to use our Services, you may close your account.

      Unless otherwise stated, our current Privacy Policy applies to all personal information that you provide to us. Using our Services after a notice of changes has been communicated to you or published on our Services shall constitute consent to the changed terms or practices.
