careerlinked.org causes the data you input to be encrypted when in route between your browser and the careerlinked.org server and when in route between the careerlinked.org server and some other browser or server. This practice helps prevent unauthorised third parties from intercepting and gaining access to your private data during transmission over the Internet. careerlinked.org uses 256-bit, Secure Socket Layer encryption supported by browsers.
Data residing on the careerlinked.org server is password protected, and access is provided only to the account holder who created the password, anyone to whom that account holder entrusted the password, and those employees of The Council who require such access to administer and maintain the careerlinked.org system or to provide requested customer support to users of careerlinked.org. Each of the Council employee who has access to the data residing on the careerlinked.org server has agreed in writing to respect the privacy of all such personal data.
