Personally Identifiable Information

Any information using which a person can be uniquely identified is referred to as Personal Identifiable Information. Examples are Email ID, Phone Number, Passport Number, National Insurance Number, Any of the ID's provided by any authorities (government, non-government) that identifies a person, Skype ID, Facebook ID, LinkedIn ID etc. 

Bare minimum personal info policy

PublicBI strongly believes and advocates in its Bare minimum personal info policy. I.e collect only as minimum personal information as required to provide a service to its users and nothing more should be collected, stored, shared or processed. On a regular basis ( once every year) proactively go through the collected records to find out records of people who are no longer users of the services or find out records of people that are no longer relevant as users,  and then proactively delete the corresponding personal information part of the record that has been captured earlier. In the instance of a country's regulation permitting more personal information to be collected than what is required for PublicBI to provide its services, PublicBI will still capture only bare minimum personal info that is required to provide its services to the user. Only if there is a legal or compliance requirement or a mandate in a country to collect certain personal information, will PublicBI capture more personal information than it requires to provide a service to its users. If you do not use any of our services that require personal information or are just a site visitor then we don't automatically capture any of the personal information.  

PublicBI takes great care to ensure that only bare minimum personal information is collected from the users of the services provided by PublicBI.  The bare minimum personal information collected is to enable PublicBI to provide its services smoothly to you (users of PublicBI services).  For example, We strongly discourage Job seekers in sending us their CV or any other attachments that may contain more personal information (example phone number, address, Skype id etc) than we require. So we specifically request Jobs seekers to provide us only bare minimum information ( Email ID - so that we can contact you, Name - So that we can address you and distinguish you from someone else, Professional Profile link - so that we can go through your profile in sites like LinkedIn or Xing and see if a Job we have matches your experience, Current  job title - to easily filter based on Job title , aspired job title - again to easily filter based on aspired job title, current city - to filter based on match between job location and candidate location and aspired city - again to filter based on the match between job location and candidate location). Time to time we may change the level of detail collected based on business need but PublicBI will always ensure that we stick to the bare minimum personal info policy that has been described above. PublicBI is led by a visionary leader ( Anoop Kumar V K) who constantly challenges himself to improve status quo, and continuous improvement is a default way of life. It was his own idea to reuse existing professional profiles (example LinkedIn or Xing) and avoid unnecessary signups and profile creations in JobsBI.com website. This has resulted in Job seekers providing only bare minimum personal information and hence achieving our goal of capturing only bare minimum personal information. PublicBI will constantly find ways to minimize personal data captured. We will not only follow best practices but also create best practices that others can follow.

PublicBI does not by default share personal information with third parties. Only in instances, where there is a business/operational requirement and consent from the users, PublicBI shares personal information with third parties. For example when there is match between a Job and a Job seeker PublicBI will ask for consent from User if their email id and Professional profile link can be provided to the HR / hiring manager / company representative for that particular Job and only then share the email id and Professional profile link.
