About this privacy policy This Privacy policy has been created to provide a clear and concise summary of how and when personal information is collected, stored and distributed. This policy discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for Optimum Consulting Group and all of our online platforms (including My Employee Life). Optimum Consulting has used the National Privacy Principles as laid out in the Privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2000 in creating its Privacy Policy.

Personal information Optimum Consulting conducts online job advertising as well as online platforms for employee engagement and we need to ensure that we have all relevant personal information to be able to serve you and ensure that the environment we create is a secure and trusted one. We therefore collect a range of information to ensure we know who we are dealing with. This information includes your name and address, your telephone number(s), your email address and your resume. You may also be requested to provide your credit card details. All transmission of personal information including your credit card details will be encrypted during on-line data transfer, by using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

Statistical information When you visit any of Optimum Consulting’s sites our server logs information which is provided by your browser. This information is used to create summary statistics, which allow us to assess the number of visitors to the different sections of our site. As well as this it allows us to discover what information is most and least used, determine technical design specifications, and help us make our site more useful to visitors. The information logged is as follows:

  • The date and time of your visit
  • The address of the referring site
  • The type of browser you are using

  • The address of the pages accessed and any documents downloaded

Optimum Consulting will make no attempt to identify users or their browsing activities, unless disclosure is required by law or due to a mandatory requirement of a Court, Governmental Agency or Regulatory Authority. We use the information only for statistical analysis or systems administration purposes.

Data collection Anyone (company or individual) who wishes to compare their own data with that of others is agreeing to allow their anonymous data to be used for analysis purposes and is available for our own purposes. Data will be stored on servers in the US. Personally identifiable data will never be shared or sold. Information that is considered personally identifiable, includes names, phone numbers, email addresses and physical addresses.
