Our commitment

JOIN TEACHING takes responsibility for maintaining and protecting Personal Information under our control.

We review this policy and our data protection practices regularly to ensure that we comply with applicable legislation and current best practices.

How we collect, use and disclose personal information

We only collect personal information as required to meet the purposes that we have identified. We do not indiscriminately collect or retain personal information.

JOIN TEACHING typically collects personal information that is voluntarily provided by the individual in question. At times, however, personal information is obtained from other sources, such as government bodies or third parties such as employers, references and service providers, as permitted by law. Where the purpose for the collection of personal information is unclear, you can ask the JOIN TEACHING representative with whom you are dealing to provide an explanation of the purpose for the data collection.  If required by applicable law, we will seek your explicit consent to process your Personal Information collected by JOIN TEACHING and/or volunteered by you. The granting of such consent is entirely voluntarily; however, if you do not grant the requested consent, your use of the services provided by JOIN TEACHING, including our website and any other online platform that we may offer from time to time may not be possible.

Our reason for collecting Personal Information about job candidates, clients, staff, and consultants are to establish and maintain the employment, contractual or other business relationship.

The purpose of collecting Personal Information about prospective placement candidates is primarily to provide recruitment services and representation, to maintain client and candidate relationships, to communicate effectively with our clients and candidates and maintain mailing lists.

We may also use your Personal Information to:

Respond to your comments, questions and requests, and provide customer service;

Communicate with you about services, offers and promotions, and provide news and information we think will be of interest to you;

Manage your account, and send you technical notices, updates, security alerts and support, and administrative messages;

Monitor and analyze trends, usage and activities;

Link or combine with information we get from others to help understand your needs and provide you with better service; and

Carry out any other purpose for which the information was collected.

As appropriate, JOIN TEACHING will ask for specific consent to collect, use and disclose Personal Information, including to complet or arranging for the completion of background checks and searches. This may be in writing or orally. In some cases, consent can be implied through an individual relationship or conduct with us, depending on the sensitivity of the information.

Personal information supplied to us is confidential and we do not disclose the information to any third party except with actual or implied consent, or as permitted or required by law. We do not exchange or sell personal information.

We may share Personal Information about you as follows:

  • with international hiring bodies for whom we provide recruitment services, consultants, and other service providers who need access to such information to carry out work on our behalf, including our legal and financial advisors;
  • in response to a request for information from a court, law enforcement agency, or other government agency or department if we believe disclosure is following any applicable law, or as otherwise required by any applicable law;
  • if we believe your actions are inconsistent with our user agreements or policies, or to protect the rights, property, and safety of us or any third party;
  • in connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, financing or transfer of all or a portion of our business to another entity; and
  • otherwise with your consent or at your direction.

We may also share aggregated or de-identified information (such as anonymous usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) which cannot reasonably be used to identify you.  If you have given your consent, we may also use your Personal Information that we collect to send you marketing or other commercial communications.

If you receive commercial emails from us, you may opt-out or unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions contained within the email or by sending an email to Please be aware that if you opt-out of receiving commercial email from us or otherwise modify the nature or frequency of promotional communications you receive from us, it may take up to ten (10) business days for us to process your request. Additionally, even after you opt-out from receiving commercial messages information from us, you will continue to receive administrative messages from us regarding the any service or online platform that JOIN TEACHING operates and with which you maintain a current user account.

Any personally identifiable information you elect to make publicly available through the use of our websites or any other JOIN TEACHING service or online platform, such as posting comments on our blog page or in forums, will be available to others.

JOIN TEACHING will never rent or sell your Personal Information to others.  However, we may use third party service providers from time to time to carry out certain functions for us such as data storage on servers or databases with hosting providers, printing, storage, shredding or document scanning. Where we use such outside service providers, we require those third parties to protect personal information in the same manner in which we protect it and to not use or disclose it for any purposes except as directed by JOIN TEACHING.

JOIN TEACHING may transfer, process, and store Personal Information to affiliated entities or other third-party service providers across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world, and your Personal Information may therefore be disclosed, transferred, stored (including electronically) or processed in such other jurisdictions for the purposes described herein.

Geographic Location

For individuals located in the European Economic Area (EEA), all processing of Personal Information is performed following privacy rights and regulations following the Regulations (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons about the processing of Personal Data and the free movement of such data, known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and JOIN TEACHING’s processing of the Personal Information of such individuals will take place following the GDPR.

JOIN TEACHING processes Personal Information both as a “Processor” and as a “Controller”, as defined in the GDPR; however, where you have volunteered personal information with respect for the creation of a user account under any of the services or online platforms offered by JOIN TEACHING from time to time, you will be the Controller and JOIN TEACHING will be the Processor.

All transfers of data internally in the EEA are done following this data processing agreement.

Protecting your personal information

Regardless of your geographic location, we strive to maintain personal information in as accurate, complete, and up-to-date a form as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected. We protect personal information by adopting reasonable physical, technical, and organizational security processes and safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the Personal Information, regardless of format, which prevents accidental, unauthorized, or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, disclosure, access, use or processing of Personal Information. Our security safeguards include premises security and restricted access to files containing personal information. Depending upon the information under our control, we also use technological safeguards such as security software and firewalls to prevent hacking or unauthorized computer access, internal passwords, and security policies. Please note, however, that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure.  Therefore, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your Personal Information. JOIN TEACHING will promptly notify individuals in the event of any known unauthorized access to or use of that individual’s Personal Information.

Retention and Deletion

JOIN TEACHING will not retain data longer than is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected or as required by applicable laws.  For certain data pertaining to a user account registered to one of JOIN TEACHING’s online platforms, you have control over the Personal Information collected and the duration for which your Personal Information is kept.
