You don’t have to give us any personal information or data to use gradcracker.com. However, to access all of our features you do need to register and provide us with the following details:
We need this information so we can personalise the alerts you receive and the content in your Dashboard. If you upload your CV to Gradcracker, these details also help our employers find you in the database, and contact you if they’re interested.
We’ll never share your information with anyone other than our employers and the essential services we use (such as our Server and Mailchimp) to keep our site running properly.
By registering, you’re consenting for us to contact you for a number of reasons, including information about new services or alerts from employers, by email, in your Dashboard or via the Gradcracker App. But we promise it’ll always be interesting, relevant, and aimed towards helping you secure your ideal role.
You can update/delete your details and contact preferences in your Dashboard, or by contacting email@example.com.
We gather and store IP addresses for data protection reasons and to generate statistics, such as counting numbers of site visitors.
We also use Google Analytics to analyse our website traffic. Some of these results are made available to our employers, so they can see how well their job postings are performing for example. If you would prefer to opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites, then please click here.
Again, no personal information is collected or used by any of these cookies, and we only gather these statistics to look at how we can improve Gradcracker for your benefit.
Except where clearly stated, you’re not allowed to download or distribute any part of this website, but we do allow you to make copies for reading or browsing and you may also make permanent copies for your personal use.
Gradcracker does not accept any liability for the unauthorised use of photographs or images supplied by employers for use on their company hubs or promotional banners/emails. Employers must therefore ensure that they have authorisation/licences for all images supplied to us. Any fees arising from unauthorised use will be charged to the employer.
If you’d like to upload your CV to the Gradcracker CV Database for our employers to view, firstly you need to be registered on Gradcracker. This is so employers can use this criteria to filter and search the database.
You can update/remove your CV in your Dashboard or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. It is a condition of employer access to our CV database that they comply with GDPR regulations, but we are unable to guarantee that any employers who may have downloaded the CV will have permanently deleted it.
By uploading a CV to the Database you are consenting to be directly contacted by employers if they wish to invite your application.
View employer terms & conditions below.
The CV Database enables you to filter, search and download student CVs, so you can then contact them directly if you’d like them to apply for your roles. You need to have subscribed to Gradcracker, and be based in the EU or a GDPR compliant country, to have access.
You must not disclose any information contained in the CVs to any third parties, or those not involved in the recruitment process. And it is not permitted to contact students for any reason other than recruitment.
Once you download a CV it’s your responsibility to protect this data in compliance with GDPR regulations, so please make sure you don’t hold onto it any longer than you need to.
The CV Database is to be used as a precision tool. It is not to be used as a tool to build a database for bulk emailing. We therefore reserve the right to withdraw access if we consider usage to be excessive.
