Privacy Policy


GulfTalent is committed to protecting the privacy of your personal data collected at this website. This statement summarizes the policies of this website regarding the collection, use, and transfer of your personal data, and the security measures GulfTalent employs to protect such data.

The Information We Collect

We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this Privacy Policy. GulfTalent and its affiliates are the sole owner of information collected on this website.

GulfTalent reserves its right to share your personal information with its licensees and affiliates.

GulfTalent is an online recruitment service and collects a variety of personal data necessary to provide these services. By choosing to enter your personal information on this site you indicate your willingness to disclose this information to GulfTalent and employers registered with it, and to be considered, when appropriate, for one of GulfTalent's vacancies. If you do not wish to disclose this information, GulfTalent will be unable to provide you the services offered by this site, since employment, educational, and other personal information is necessary in order to assess your employment opportunities.

It is not GulfTalent's policy to seek any sensitive information through our website unless legally required for recruitment purposes. Sensitive information includes data relating to race or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or similar beliefs, trade union membership, physical or mental health, sexual life, or criminal record. We suggest that you do not provide sensitive information of this nature. If you do wish to provide sensitive information for any reason, GulfTalent accepts your explicit consent to use that information in the ways described in this Privacy Policy or as described at the point where you choose to disclose.

How We Use and Disclose Personally-Identifying Information

In order to present you as a candidate on a vacancy, your personal information may be provided to GulfTalent's clients (potential employers), affiliates, and licensees. If you do not wish to participate in this service and benefit from the career opportunities that GulfTalent provides, please do not enter your personal information into the website.

Information obtained by the site is used only for the intended purposes stated. It is GulfTalent's policy not to sell or share your personal information for related or unrelated purposes to non-licensee third parties, unless otherwise stated at the time of collection. If at any time we decide to use personal data in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will endeavour to notify you and give you a choice as to whether or not we use your information in this different manner. No notification and choice will be sought if GulfTalent is compelled or required by applicable law, statute, regulation, ordinance, or court order to disclose personal data.

How We Use and Disclose Non-Personally Identifying Information

Your personal information may also be used anonymously and in the aggregate in order to put together industry, marketing and employment statistics. Used in this matter, your personal information becomes non-identifying. GulfTalent also monitors IP addresses for security purposes, trend analysis, site administration, user movement tracking, and broad demographic information gathering for aggregate use. The IP address of the computer you use to access GulfTalent (the 'internet street address' of your computer) is not linked to any personal information you provide on the site.

Information Security and Integrity

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain accuracy of data and ensure proper use of information, GulfTalent has put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial security procedures to safeguard all information collected online.

We will not process your personal information in a way that is incompatible with what is outlined in the Privacy Statement, and will use our best efforts to ensure that data is accurate, complete, current and reliable for its intended use. We also will use our best efforts to protect your information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.

If you forget your password, click the 'Forgot Password' link that appears on the Log In Screen and enter your User ID. The system will then send you an email with a link to reset your password.

GulfTalent reserves the right to change User IDs and Passwords at any time to protect the security of the site.

Newsletter, Site/Service Updates, Surveys, and Contests

GulfTalent may offer newsletters to registered users of the site via email. If you wish to unsubscribe from a newsletter, please follow the directions at the bottom of the newsletter and you will be taken off the recipient list. If you thought the email you have received from our server is an unsolicited email, please contact us at and we will follow up the matter.

GulfTalent will periodically send you website update information and service announcement updates via email. Because these announcements contain important information about GulfTalent's service, as long as you remain a registered user, you will not be able to unsubscribe from these announcements. From time-to-time the site requests information from you via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is your choice and is completely voluntary as to whether to disclose information. Information requested may include contact information and demographic information. Contact information will be used to notify and award winners. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring, improving, or enhancing the use and satisfaction of the site.


Please be aware that this website may contain links to third-party websites. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by this website. This Privacy Policy does not apply to, nor is GulfTalent responsible for, any content, privacy practices, or conduct of such websites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy policies of each and every website including those that collect personally identifiable information.


Cookies are packets of information that are stored on your computer's hard drive. At GulfTalent, cookies allow us to keep track of the areas of the site you visit and thereby offer you easy access to the information you find most relevant. They also allow us to greet you by name when you visit and to remember that you have already registered. No secure information or information about your personal identity is ever contained within our cookies. Your web browser is most likely set to automatically accept cookies, but you can consult your browser help file if you wish to change these settings. If you elect not to receive cookies, registered users will not be able to view a personalized home page, and will view the default homepage instead.

Resume Privacy Options

When you post your resume, GulfTalent automatically creates a registration for you using the email address and password that you supply. When you return to the site in the future you will use that same email address and password to access and edit your existing resume.

GulfTalent recognises that job seekers have different levels of comfort in posting their resume on the internet. To accommodate the needs of all users, GulfTalent offers three levels of privacy from which to choose from.

Standard Posting gives job seekers the most visibility to the broadest employer and/or recruiter audience possible, making the resume including full name and contact details searchable by all third-parties who have subscribed to GulfTalent’s database search service.

Private Posting will allow the resume to be searched, without the name or contact information being displayed. In this case, interested parties can only contact the candidate through GulfTalent.

Hidden Posting allows the user to post his/her resume on GulfTalent without permitting it to be searched by third parties. In this case, the resume can only be viewed by a third-party if the candidate applies for a vacancy advertised by that third-party.

In addition, GulfTalent distinguishes between ‘Employers’ and ‘Recruitment Agencies’ and allows users to specify their desired privacy and visibility options vis-à-vis each group separately.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

GulfTalent reserves the right to modify or amend the Privacy Policy at any time and for any reason. Please check back to this Privacy Policy from time to time to stay informed.

Nothing contained in this Privacy Policy is intended to create a contract or agreement between GulfTalent and any user visiting the site or providing identifying information in any form. If you have any questions about your personal information contact us .
