Your Privacy

Your security and privacy are important to us, and we will ensure that we take all measures to protect the information of candidates, clients, suppliers and employees.


We will:


  • never pass on your details to a third party without your consent, except as noted in our Privacy Policy

  • never store resume information on our website

  • use best practice measures for securely storing your information

  • provide you with current warnings relating to relevant scams we are aware of

  • respond promptly to your enquiries regarding your personal information


We are committed to protecting the privacy of the personal information that we collect from you and complying with the Privacy Act 1988 and the Privacy Amendment (Enhancing Privacy Protection) Act 20120 (the “Privacy Act”), including the Australian Privacy Principles (the “APPs”).


This Privacy Policy details how we comply with our privacy obligations and manage the personal information you provide. By submitting personal information to us, you agree to our use of such information as described herein. We reserve the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy from time to time, and all personal data held by us will be governed by the most recent version of our Privacy Policy.


What is personal information?


The Privacy Act defines personal information. Personal information includes information or an opinion about an individual whose identity is apparent or can reasonably be ascertained from the information or opinion. In summary, personal information is any information that can be used to identify you. Suppose the information you provide to us identifies you or your identity can be reasonably ascertained from such information. In that case, it will be considered personal information, and we will manage such information by the Privacy Act, APPs and this policy.


What information do we collect? How is information collected and held?


We collect personal information in various ways, such as when candidates register, and apply for employment, when you respond to email questionnaires or when you provide personal information to us by other means, such as in person, over the phone or by email. The personal information collected may consist of your actual name, company or educational affiliations, qualifications, titles, contact details, information from your resume and other information from which you may be identifiable. We may also collect personal information about you from our service providers, business affiliates, clients and other third parties, such as employers and persons nominated by you as referees. Sensitive information is a specific category of personal information. Such information includes membership in a profession or trade association or a trade union, health information, criminal record and the like. We may need to collect and disclose sensitive information about you about specific requirements for your placement by us. If we do, we will get your explicit consent to collecting and using this information.


Some information that we collect may not be personal. This may include aggregated information about how users use the Keegan Adams’ website, anonymous answers to surveys and other information that does not personally identify you. Information that is not personal is not subject to the Privacy Act or the APPs, and we can use such information for any purpose. Data is held on our secure servers.


How may my personal information be used?


We use your personal information to provide our products and services to you and manage our business operations. We may use your personal information to fulfil your requests for information and employment opportunities, assist in the recruitment process, and manage our client and business relationships. The email addresses provided at registration allow us to send emails to individuals based on the areas of interest that they may indicate during the employment registration process.


Is personal information disclosed to third parties?


We may disclose your personal information for the purposes for which it is primarily held or for a related secondary purpose, and in some cases, we may only disclose information with your consent. We will not intentionally disclose (and will take commercially reasonable steps to prevent the accidental disclosure of) your personal information to third parties, whether for such third parties' marketing purposes or otherwise, except when we have obtained your consent or we believe we are under a lawful duty or obligation to do so.


Should we merge with or sell most of our assets or equity to a third party, personal information may be disclosed to and owned by the merged entity or third party.


We may also disclose your personal information to a third-party service provider only if such disclosure is required to administer our business functions or to provide our products and services to you.


We may transfer personal information about you to someone who is in a foreign country only if:


The transfer is for one of the purposes set out in this policy statement
We reasonably believe that the recipient of the information is subject to a law, binding scheme or contract which effectively upholds principles for fair handling of the information that is substantially similar to the Australian Privacy Principles; or

you consent to the transfer; or

We have taken reasonable steps to ensure that the information that it has transferred will not be held, used or disclosed by the recipient of the information inconsistently with the National Privacy Principles.


How can I access, change, and delete information?


Subject to some exceptions in the Privacy Act, you have the right to access and correct personal information about you that we hold. You may access and update personal information that you submitted to us directly by contacting your consultant or our Privacy Officer at 1800 WE ARE BPR.


There may be times when we cannot grant you access to the personal information we hold. For example, if access would pose a health risk to you or interfere with the privacy of others or if it would result in a breach of confidentiality, we will not be required to grant you access. We will let you know if this is the case.


You may also have your personal information deleted. To do so, please get in touch with us with sufficient information to confirm your identity (generally speaking, a scanned copy of photographic identification will suffice). Your personal information will be deleted from our database as soon as practicable after your request is received. Of course, if your data has been deleted and you wish to apply for another position through us, you will need to repeat the application process. You should be aware that we are required by law to retain certain personal information (such as payroll records); such information will not be deleted. We will let you know if we cannot delete your data for legal or other reasons.




We have industry-standard technological and operational security in place to protect your personal information from misuse and unintended disclosure, alteration, or deletion. Only authorised personnel will be provided with access to personal information, and these parties are required to treat this information as confidential and by this Privacy Policy.


However, we cannot guarantee the complete security of data transmissions or communications over the internet. As such, you provide information to us over the internet at your own risk.
