The information we provide in this document is designed to help you understand how we use your information and the choices you have for protecting it. DEVAID Limited collects personal information about you and distributes that information to help you connect with employers and other job seekers with similar interests and to provide other services to you.

Information we collect and retain

The rights to access and use of the service are non-exclusive. We collect information that you choose to provide us. Upon signing up to using DevelopmentAid, you are voluntarily sharing personally identifiable information such as your name, email address, citizenship, professional experience, etc. We also collect information about how you use our site and the areas of our site that you visit.

In any case, it is indicated on the web site whether any personal or demographic data must be provided to use the requested service or not.

How Information is Used

Information you post in public areas of the site or placed in the searchable resume database will be accessed, used, and stored by others around the world. We strive to provide a safe, secure environment by attempting to limit access to our database to legitimate users but cannot guarantee that unauthorized parties will not gain access. We also cannot control how authorized users store or transfer information downloaded from the database, so you should ensure that you do not post sensitive information on our site.

We may use your information to contact you regarding DevelopmentAid updates, conduct surveys, or informational and service-related communications, including important security updates.

Individuals with working experience of at least 5 years may be selected to have their personal data processed further, leading to the creation of a second profile in our Advanced Database. Upon exercising the right to be forgotten, both profiles shall be deleted. This will ensure that all corresponding personally identifiable information will no longer exist in our database or databases.
