Disclosures of your Information

 

We will share your information within the Food People where necessary in order to provide you with our recruitment services.

 

It is possible that Food People could merge or be acquired by another business. If this happens, we may share the information that relates to you with the new owners of the business and their advisers. You will be sent notice of such an event.

 

Your CV and related information will be sent to prospective employers but only where you give your consent. Such employers may be located both inside and outside the United Arab Emirates.

 

We may also release information relating to you to regulatory or law enforcement authorities, if required to do so. We also reserve the right to disclose the information we have collected about you to our professional advisors and to other persons to the extent that Food People contracts out any aspect of the operation of its recruitment agency services.  These third parties will be acting under similar undertakings of confidentiality as Food People.

 

Curriculum Vitae (CV)

 

We give you the option of submitting your CV via this website. You can do this either to apply for a specific advertised job or for consideration by our recruitment consultants for positions as they come up.  Although your CV will be stored online, it will only be accessible by Food People recruitment consultants, working both inside and outside the United Arab Emirates. Your CV will also be e-mailed directly to our recruitment consultants who review your details and enter them onto our central in-house database. This database, including the information relating to you, can be accessed by any of our recruitment consultants working in other offices of Food People, both inside and outside the United Arab Emirates.

 

You can update your CV at any time, simply by following the same procedure to submit a new CV. Your old CV will automatically be replaced. 

 

Aggregate Information about Food People online visitors

 

We gather information and statistics collectively about all visitors to this website and all of the Food People websites worldwide, for example, which area users access most frequently and which services users access the most. We only use such data in the aggregate form. This information helps us determine what is most beneficial for our users and how we can continually improve our online services to create a better overall experience for our users.  We also publish some of this information on the Food People websites worldwide.
