The information we collect about you will either be provided by (or obtained from) you or your employer or potential employer.
Where you participate in an Interview, our software will collect the recordings of the Interview and the transcripts from the Interview. All the other information is accessed by us via a data connection to your employer or potential employer’s Applicant Tracking System.
You are under no obligation to provide any such data. However, if you choose to withhold requested information, we may not be able to provide our services to you or work with you.
We also collect information automatically when you use the Platform and the Website and when you navigate through the Platform and the Website. Information collected automatically may include usage details, geo-location data, IP addresses and information collected through cookies, and other tracking technologies (which may not be information which identifies you). For more information on our use of these technologies, please refer to the section on cookies below.
2. How do we use personal information relating to you?
We use personal information relating to you that we collect, or that you provide to us, for the purposes of our legitimate interests in providing and improving our services and operating our business and for the purposes of performing our contract with you, as follows:
- to provide our services to your employer or potential employer. This will include providing your employer or potential employer with advice, recommendations and reports about the Interview process and their hiring decisions;
- to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us and to provide you with the information, products and services that you request from us;
- to provide you with information about other products and services we offer that are similar to those that you have already purchased or enquired about, where you have consented to be contacted for such purposes;

For example, we may aggregate personal information related to Interviews to demonstrate the effectiveness of our services. However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your personal information so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal information which will be used in accordance with this privacy notice.
You have the right to object to this processing if you wish, and if you wish to do so, please send an email to or write to us using the contact details set out at the end of this notice. Please bear in mind that if you object, this may affect our ability to carry out the tasks above for your benefit.

4. How do we protect your personal information?
To protect information in transit between our client’s and our own servers, an encrypted connection is negotiated designed to achieve secure delivery. These connections are encrypted using Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) / Transport Layer Security (“TLS”) to create a secure tunnel protected by 128-bit or higher Advanced Encryption Standard (“AES”) encryption.
In addition, files uploaded from our client’s (currently web) are stored on our storage services. Each file is encrypted using 256-bit AES.
However, the safety and security of your information and any personal information relating to you also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password that enables you to access certain parts of the Platform, the Website and/or the Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Metaview takes steps to destroy or de-identify personal information when the information is no longer required for any purpose for which it may be used or disclosed by us and we are no longer required by law to retain the information.
5. Where do we store personal information?
The personal information relating to you that we collect may be transferred to, and stored at, locations outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. These staff may be engaged in, among other things, the delivery of our services and the provision of support services.
As described in this privacy notice, we may also share personal information relating to you with other companies within our group or with third parties who are located overseas, for business purposes and operational, support and continuity purposes, for example, when we use IT service providers or data storage services.
Countries where personal information relating to you may be stored and/or processed, or where recipients of personal information relating to you may be located, may have data protection laws which differ to the data protection laws in your country of residence. You accept that personal information relating to you may be transferred, stored or processed in this way. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this notice.
6. Third-party links
Although the Platform and the Website only look to include quality, safe and relevant external links users should always adopt a policy of caution before clicking any external web links mentioned throughout the Platform or the Website.
The Platform or the Website may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partners and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal information to these websites.
7. Social media platforms
Communication, engagement and actions taken through external social media platforms that we participate on are subject to the terms and conditions as well as the privacy policies of those social media platforms, and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal information to these social media platforms.
8. Do we use 'cookies'?
A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer's hard drive.
You can block cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our services.
9. Data retention
We will only retain your personal information for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal information for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.
10. Your rights
You have the right to access personal information held relating to you. To protect your privacy, we may take steps to verify your identity before taking any action in response to any request. You will not have to pay a fee to access personal information relating to you (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.
