Employers can choose between two methods to capture job applications. Either by email or by URL.
When the employer chooses to capture job applications by URL, the employer provides a URL to an external online form. When this method has been chosen, Google Analytics (our “conversion tracker”) tracks when this URL has been clicked.
When the employer chooses to capture job applications by email, we generate a
@creativeskills.me email address. Job applications send to this email are automatically forwarded to the employer. Additionally, a duplicate is imported into our database. The employer can log into our platform and check all job applications through our ATS (application tracking system).
We use Mailgun Technologies Inc. to process our incoming and outgoing transactional email messages. These messages regard communication around your account, your job applications, your job publications etc. Incoming and outgoing messages are being retained for 30 days by this third party. This gives us a 30 day window to verify whether messages have been successfully sent and received and identify any issues regarding deliverability.
We use Campaign Monitor Pty Ltd to send out our weekly jobs newsletter. This service collects analytics and tracks whether you have opened the newsletter and which item within the newsletter you have clicked. This service also tracks your location.

Static data files are hosted by Amazon Data Services Ireland Ltd (our “data storage provider” or “storage provider”). Attachments from job applications, user avatars and portfolio images are stored at this third party's datacenter in Ireland (EU). Static files can be identified by the word "cdn" in the URL. For example:
For performance reasons our static files are served by Amazon CloudFront (our “content delivery network” or “CDN”). These files are replicated across datacenters in USA, Canada and Europe.
The file storage process involves Zapier Inc. which synchronizes files between our hoster and our storage provider. This third-party does not retain any of the synchronized files and only acts as a gateway between the two services. Each copy left after successful synchronization is being removed from our hoster within 24 hours.
Files like portfolio images, company headers & logos and user avatars are being processed by Uploadcare LLC. This third party temporarily stores image files on their servers to perform image manipulations like resizing, compressing etc. These images are being retained for 30 days by both third parties. This gives us a 30 day window to verify whether images have been successfully processed.
Attachments from job applications, like PDFs and Word documents are being converted to text by CloudConvert by Lunaweb Ltd, and stored in our database. Attachments retain at the third party's server only for the duration of the conversion and are being removed when the process has been completed.
