We empower you to contribute towards our vision to enable economic sustainability and job creation in countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). This privacy policy outlines the type of details we collect, how it is used and shared. You can request for additional information by contacting us via email to privacy@onegcc.com or send a message using the contact page on the onegcc platform.

Please bear in mind when you review our policy, that it is applicable to all solutions and services powered by onegcc.com including those which do not have an independent privacy policy or that link to this policy, that comprise the “onegcc.com Solutions” or “Solutions.”

This privacy policy applies only to the onegcc.com website (the “Site”). The Site is operated by onegcc.com. Being the first digital platform supporting the nationalization of GCC jobs, onegcc.com is the only dedicated talent pool for GCC nationals.

At onegcc.com we make every effort to comply with our obligations under the GCC Data Protection laws. Additionally, we understand the importance of maintaining the confidentiality of your Profile and CV, and other information stored about you while using the site. You can remove any of the information that onegcc.com stores about you, at any time, by logging in to your onegcc.com' account and choosing to close the account.

By using the Site you consent to the collection and use of information in accordance with this privacy policy. Privacy policy is updated as of 1 March 2016.

Collection of Personal Information: We collect personal information from you (for example, name, address, telephone number, email address, photo etc) when you make an application, complete registration forms, submit comments to the Site, participate in message boards, blogs or any other user generated content facilities or send emails to us. We may also extract relevant personal information from other data that you provide, for example, from your CV. Please do not submit such personal information to us if you do not wish us to collect it. We may also collect personal information which we have found from other websites that display information about you publically. For example, social media accounts such as Facebook and Twitter, your online profile on your current employer’s network, any articles about you or any public listing of your profile where you have allowed us to access this information by using social media accounts to be connected to your onegcc.com account.

Registration details: Contact and other details you supply as part of the registration process are stored by us and used to provide you with the information you have requested. Please note that although we require  customers who use our services, such as employers seeking to recruit staff, to agree to use the information made available solely for recruitment­related purposes, we do not control their use of any information that they have access to as part of receiving our services.

Profile and CV information: When you complete your onegcc.com profile, including the uploading of your CV, it can be made available for searching and viewing over the Internet, including other company recruitment sites within the onegcc.com team, and downloading by any direct recruiter, employment consultant or other person or organisation who requests CVs matching your profile to be sent to them. onegcc.com does not verify the identity or the nature of the business of such organisations.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Your current employer may be a customer of onegcc.com, or a client of one of our customers. onegcc.com cannot restrict the customers who access profiles on our database and cannot be held responsible for any eventuality. As part of the registration process onegcc.com offers you the option of becoming verified and remaining anonymous.

onegcc.com will also use the aggregate data to identify employment trends across different industries, such as salary averages. This information will not be capable of being linked to any personally identifying information about users.Some of our customers may be located in countries outside the GCC Economic Area.

When you 'apply online', we store some information about you in your 'My onegcc.com' area, but it is protected by your password and may only be accessed by you. When your profile is searchable your application activity (number of applications, job titles, locations & salaries) will be visible to onegcc.com customers. onegcc.com makes every reasonable effort to verify the names of organisations you applied to. We will respect the choices you make to limit sharing or visibility settings in your “My onegcc.com” account. You can delete your 'My onegcc.com.com' account at any time, make your profile anonymous or choose to not make your profile searchable. Your CV can only be viewed by a onegcc.com customer, or customer of the onegcc.com team, if you have consented to this within the profile section.

If you choose to create a profile and upload a CV to our database, we rely on you to ensure that your details are kept up to date. You should update your CV at least every six months, particularly if your contact details have changed. Please note that onegcc.com reserves the right to remove from our database, CVs which include any content that we consider to be illegal or offensive.

IP address information: Like many websites, we routinely capture your IP address information to determine your location. An IP address, or 'internet protocol address', is a unique identifying number given to every device connected to the internet. Like a car license plate, an IP address is a special serial number used for identification. This helps us work out whether you are visiting the site from within the GCC or rest of the world, and means we can show you content that's specific to your location and ask the right questions about your eligibility to work in the GCC should you wish to apply for a job on onegcc.com.

Statistical information: We provide aggregate statistical information about site visitors and users to recruiters (such as the number of CVs on the database, or the number of visitors to the site) and for other lawful purposes. We provide this information to customers, advertisers, suppliers and other reputable third parties. This will not include any information that enables them to identify individuals.

Location based services: If you use the onegcc.com location targeting features we will ask you if you want to use our geolocation service. This service is provided by Adobe Systems Software Ireland Limited. Based on your internet signal and browser information it allows us to identify your location. We will use this information to provide you with job offers close to you and to improve our services. In no case will we merge such information with any personally identifiable information. We will at no times be able to connect you personally in connection with the respective location. You may at any stage opt out of location tracking by changing the account settings to not allow geolocation services to access your location data. However, you will also lose the location supported product functionality as well. For further information about Adobe and their service including their privacy policy, please visit http://www.adobe.com/privacy.html.

Push notifications: If you use the onegcc.com website, you may also consent to push notifications, text messages, alerts, emails or other types of messages directly sent to you outside or inside of onegcc.com to your mobile browser or desktop browser. If you declare your consent to receive such messages a device token will be generated, which will be associated with your device. These device tokens will be stored on our behalf by the respective telecommunications operator you use in your country for your device. You can opt out from receiving such messages by changing the settings of your device.”

Online Behavioral Advertising: We partner with third­party advertising networks to either display advertising on onegcc.com or to manage our advertising on other sites. These ad network partners may utilize cookies or web beacons to better provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you. They do not collect and do not have access to any personally identifiable information.

Sharing Your Information: Personal data which you supply to us may be transferred to third party service providers to be stored or processed on our behalf, including third parties located outside of the GCC Economic Area in countries where there may be a lower legal level of data protection. However, we will always endeavor to handle your information in accordance with this privacy policy, wherever it is processed. Personal data which we collect from both public sources and from yourself may also be shared with other companies within the onegcc.com team. This may include your job seeker profile and result in your profile being searchable on other company sites within the onegcc.com team. At all times, the onegcc.com team will ensure that your information is adequately protected. Each member of the onegcc.com team may use and share your personal information as set out in this privacy policy.
