Privacy statement

  1. Who am I sending my personal data to? Freelance Geomatics ZA is the data controller for all the information you submit on this site. It is responsible for ensuring that the personal data collected through the site is protected and processed in accordance with this Privacy Statement and applicable data protection and privacy laws.

  2. What personal data is processed? When you register your interest as a freelancer at Freelance Geomatics ZA, or when you set up a profile so that you can receive job alerts, we will ask for personal data that identifies you (including your name and contact information), curriculum vitae and relevant certificates, depending on nature of the freelancing opportunity.

  3. Why is personal data processed? We collect and otherwise process personal data for the purpose of filling freelancing vacancies, to pursue Freelance Geomatics ZA’s business interests in relation to recruitment planning and to meet legal, regulatory and compliance obligations. As a freelancer, we will process your personal data to assess your suitability for the freelance opportunity that may arise, and to match you with job vacancies through our staffing solution network. Sometimes we need to collect certain types of personal data to comply with our legal obligations, and if that’s the case, that will be explained to you when it is requested.

  4. Will my personal data be disclosed? We will share your personal data within the Freelance Geomatics ZA staff involved in the recruitment process. We will also share your personal data with external service providers who help us to carry out our recruitment and HR functions and other support functions (e.g. helping us to match profiles with job vacancies, or providing technical support, or conducting surveys). Sometimes at the end of a recruitment process, and in compliance with applicable laws, we may seek your consent to disclose your personal data to third parties who assist us with our compliance obligations (in relation to the job you are being engaged to perform). We may also need to disclose your personal data if we are under a legal obligation to do so (e.g. responding to a court order).

  5. What are my privacy rights? You have rights to seek access to your personal data and to correct it, and in some cases to seek its erasure. You also have the right to seek information about how your personal data is being processed and where, to object to its processing in some circumstances, and to make complaints about data processing. Contact us to make any changes to your data.
