GBA Jobs is a division of GBA Digital Media Pty Ltd, a company registered in South Africa.

We respect your privacy and is committed to protecting it. We will only use the information you supply to us.  There are certain very special exceptions to this rule that we detail below in our Privacy Policy. GBA Digital Media Pty Ltd does not sell customer names to mailing lists or marketing companies.

As a Visitor or Member of our Services, the collection, use and sharing of your personal data is subject to this Privacy Policy and other documents referenced in this Privacy Policy, as well as updates. By visiting GBA Jobs,  you are accepting the practices described here in our Privacy Policy.

When An Order Is Placed

The only information we ask is specified on the GBA Digital Media Pty Ltd registration page, or order form for advertising and job posting. This information supplied is treated with the strictest of confidence and used to process the specific application you have requested e.g. your order (job posting, cv upload or job application) so that delivery can be carried out.

Protecting Your Information

We value confidentiality in all our dealings. As such, whenever you place an order at GBA Digital Media Pty Ltd or make an application or registration, you’ll be using our secure server, which prevents any unauthorized access.

How We Use “Cookies”

“Cookies” are small information files that your browser stores on your computer’s hard drive that enables GBA Jobs site features and functionality. We use both persistent and session cookies.

A persistent cookie may help us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to GBA Jobs or interact with our Services without signing in again. A persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by GBA Jobs when you return to one of our sites or a partner site that uses our Services.

Any browser visiting our sites may receive cookies from us or cookies from third parties such as our customers, partners or service providers. We or third parties may also place cookies in your browser when you visit non- GBA Jobs sites that display ads, host our plugins or tags.

We use cookies for:

  • authentication
  • security
  • enhance features and services to improve our visitor experience
  • enable plugins to other employment/jobs websites so that an automatic reference or application can be made.
  • advertising
  • performance analytics and research

How we use Pixels

A pixel is a tiny image that may be found within web pages and emails, requiring a call (which provides device and visit information) to our server in order for the pixel to be rendered in those web pages and emails. We use pixels to learn more about your interactions with email content or web content, such as whether you interacted with ads or posts. Pixels can also enable us and third parties to place cookies on your browser.

GBA Digital Media Pty Ltd Will Not Give Out Your Information

GBA Digital Media Pty Ltd does not sell customer names to mailing lists or marketing companies. We will not give or sell your personal information to any person or company. We may provide general statistics about our customers’ purchasing patterns as a group for market research purposes. This information will be based on aggregated information and no personal details will be revealed. We are not responsible for any breach of security or for the actions of third parties.

Your Device and Location

We receive data from your devices and networks, including location data. When you visit or leave our website (including some plugins and our cookies or similar technology on the sites of others), we receive the URL of both the site you came from and the one you go to and the time of your visit. We also get information about your network and device (e.g., IP address, proxy server, operating system, web browser and add-ons, device identifier and features, cookie IDs and/or ISP, or your mobile carrier). If you use our Services from a mobile device, that device will send us data about your general location based on your phone settings.

Special Exceptions

1.    If GBA Digital Media Pty Ltd is ever sold, it is likely that our assets would be acquired by the company that buys us. Assets to be transferred in an acquisition would likely include all of our database information, including customer information.
2.    If we are requested to release customer information in order to comply with law, or to protect somebody’s rights or safety, we certainly may do so. Also, if we believe fraudulent activity is occurring, we may need to share your information with investigators to protect yours or our property.
