Privacy Policy

Last updated: 27/05/2021

(hereinafter, the “Policy”).

This Privacy Policy governs your use of the website which is accessed at the web address (“this Website”) and the use of any and all services provided in relation thereto (the “Services”). The Website is owned and operated by Kbiz1 Ltd (“We”; “Us”; “Our”; “Avanzpro”). We are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

This Policy sets out the basis on which any personal data that We collect from you, or that you provide to Us, will be processed by Us. It should be read in conjunction with such other terms as are applicable to you, including without limitation, in the case of users providing jobs (“Recruiters”), the Terms and Conditions applicable to Recruiters or in the case of users who are potential candidates for such jobs (“Job Seekers”), the Terms and Conditions applicable to Job Seekers. The Terms and Conditions applicable to both Recruiters and Job Seekers (together, the “Users”; “You”) are accessible via the following links and (each as applicable being hereinafter referred to as Our “Terms of Service”).

Please read the following carefully to understand Our views and practices regarding your personal data and how We will treat it. You must give your express consent to the terms and practices set out in this Policy in order to access and browse the Website.

If you do not consent to the terms and practices set out in this Policy, you must immediately exit Our Website.

Therefore, please read this Policy carefully.

For the purposes of the Data Protection Act (Chapter 440 of the Laws of Malta) (the “Act”)  and/or the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC, the “Regulation”), together with any amendments from time to time (once the latter are in force), Avanzpro is the data controller.

A.      Legal Basis for Processing Activities

We principally rely on three separate and overlapping legal bases to process your personal information lawfully, and to ensure conformity with Our obligations under applicable data protection laws. Firstly, it is necessary for Us to process your personal information in certain ways, in order to provide the services available over the Website to you, in accordance with the contract created between you and Us as a result of your acceptance of Our Terms of Service and to ensure the performance of this contract.

Secondly, where you have given Us valid consent to use your data in certain ways (that is, affirmative, free and unambiguous consent), We will rely on such consent. Lastly, in very specific cases, We may process your information where necessary to further Our legitimate interests, and where those particular interests are not overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. The circumstances giving rise to this latter scenario are described below in the section entitled: ‘Disclosure of Your Information’.

B.      Information We Collect From You

Kindly note that the provision of certain information is mandatory in order to use the Website and this will be clearly indicated to You. For instance, if You fail to complete a required field, then further use of the Website will be blocked. If a Job Seeker or Recruiter profile is not completed (for the purposes of account registration), logging-in to Avanzpro and/or making use of Our services will not be possible.

Job Seekers will be able to browse through all job vacancies available at any one time on Avanzpro or alternatively may peruse job postings which will be filtered on the basis of their choice of industry, job category, basis of employment (e.g. full-time, part-time etc.) as well as channel (that is, either vacancies posted directly from employers or vacancies posted by recruitment agencies). Job Seekers can submit their application in respect of a particular listing and Avanzpro will forward such application to the relevant Recruiter accordingly. Any information which You provide at this stage to the Recruiter or, as applicable, to the Job Seeker (excluding that which has already been made available or visible via the Website), is entirely at your own discretion and choosing.

Recruiters posting job listings on Avanzpro may opt to receive job applications directly through their own website/career portal and in this case Avanzpro will not be forwarding applications/candidate resumes to the employer but will simply re-direct the Job Seeker to the web address at the external link as provided by the employer at the job posting stage. In these instances, Job Seekers who are made to apply for a job directly through the employer’s website are informed that those websites will have their own privacy policies and that We do not accept any responsibility or liability for those policies.

We will collect and process the following data about you:

1.     Information that You Give Us

a.     Basic Account Information: Job Seekers who choose to create a profile on the Website,  must provide Us with some personal information, including  name and surname, e-mail address (which will act as the username), password, and a confirmation whether the Job Seeker is currently based in Malta. Job Seekers may also opt to receive e-mail notifications when vacancies are posted on the Site in the categories which are of interest to them. Should Job Seekers not wish to receive further job alerts from Us, they are to disable this function accordingly from their profile.

As a Job Seeker, you will also be requested to provide us with your Curriculum Vitae (C.V.), but this will not be available or visible to other users of the Website. To this end, We will only use your C.V. for the purpose of making it available specifically to the Recruiters for whose job the Job Seeker has applied for through Our site. Upon receiving a job application through Our site, Recruiters can only use the C.V. and any other supporting document for the purpose of the job application and any other use or misuse of such information is strictly prohibited. Avanzpro shall in no way be held liable for any use or misuse of such information out of context. Once a Job Seeker’s C.V. and other personal data of the candidate are transferred to the Recruiter, the Recruiter, in terms of the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) becomes a data controller in its own right and thus will have to abide by its own data protection obligations, including but not limited to, the obligation to store personal data for a period that is not longer then necessary for the purposes of data processing.

Recruiters shall have access to the C.V. which the Job Seeker has stored on their profile for a period of not longer then three (3) months from the date of application. If during the three (3) months following a job application, a Job Seeker replaces the C.V. he/she has stored on his/her profile (from the one which he/she applied for the job with), Recruiters would then have access to the updated C.V. as stored on Our Website. The deletion of a Job Seeker’s C.V. and any supporting documents held by a Recruiter following an application through Our site will be at the discretion of the Recruiter. Job Seekers who wish to have their information, as held by Recruiters, following an application through Our site, deleted, are to request this directly from the Recruiter.

Recruiters who choose to create an account on the Website will be requested to provide Us with the company name, the company’s VAT number, the company e-mail address, the company’s website, the company’s billing address, the industry in which the company operates, an e-mail address which will be used to receive notifications of any new job applications, a brief description about the company, the name of the company representative who is utilising Our Website, the company representative’s position within the company and his/her contact number. Recruiters may also provide Us with their logo which will be displayed on the individual job listings as well as a promotional banner which will be displayed on the company’s dedicated page on Our site.

b.     Contact Information: We will use the e-mail address provided to us to send an initial e-mail to all new Users which will then allow them to activate their profile on our Site. Users may use their contact information, such as e-mail address or phone number, to, for instance, (i) report an issue with the Website, (ii) report a problem they may have encountered in relation to any of the features on the Website (e.g. an unsatisfactory service) and/or (iii) contact Our customer support team or correspond with Us in general.

c.      Payment Information: If you are a Recruiter, depending on the payment method you select to affect payment to Avanzpro, You may be required to supply your valid credit card information as well as billing address details. The payment information that you supply is processed on Our behalf, and at Our instructions, by Our third-party payment processing and billing service provider/s.
