  6. Storage and security of information


    You should be aware that information transmitted over the internet is inherently insecure. We will take all reasonable steps to securely store any personal information collected through Weirdly.

    All personal information stored by us is protected through secure encrypted passwords, user log-ons and other security procedures.

However, we will not be held responsible for events arising from unauthorised access of your personal information.

    You play an important role in keeping your personal information secure by maintaining the confidentiality of any password and accounts used on Weirdly. Please notify us immediately if there is any unauthorised use of your account by any other internet user or any other breach of security.
  7. Cookies

    We use cookies (an alphanumeric identifier that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive so that we can recognise your browser) to monitor your use of the website.  You may disable cookies by changing the settings on your browser, although this may mean that you cannot use all of the features of the website.
  8. Retention of your information

    We will only hold your personal information for as long as permitted by applicable laws. You may have the right under applicable law to access and/or correct your personal information held by us. You can do this by contacting us using the details below.
  9. Deletion of your information

    If we delete your TalentProfile, that removes you completely from the talent pool. That means if at some point in the future, you DO want work again, you won’t be put forward. Or rather, you’ll have to find out about the job and create an entirely new TalentProfile.

    Instead, you could mark yourself as ‘unavailable’ by checking the box in your profile under the ‘Availability’ tab. Then, if you need a new job in the future sometime - you move house or go back to school and want part time instead of full time work - you can just jump back in, uncheck the box and you’ll be back in the consideration pool for new opportunities.

    If you don’t want to be considered for any new roles, we can delete your profile. This will remove you completely so maybe take a second to make sure you’re sure. If you decide YES you’d like your data permanently deleted, please:

    - Email us at to request deletion
    - Let us know the reason for your request
    - Provide details of the organisation/s from which you would like your profile deleted
  10. Changes to our Privacy Policy

    We may amend or update this Privacy Policy from time to time, with or without notice to you. You agree to be bound by the Privacy Policy that is in effect at the time you use Weirdly. Revised versions will be effective immediately once posted on our website.
