Integral to the service that BAC Middle East provides for its customers is its commitment to respecting your privacy online. Whenever and wherever possible, BAC Middle East will treat the information about you with utmost care and confidentiality, whether received through your use of this website, or other applications to BAC Middle East. To enable you to have a clear picture of how we may use your personal information please read below for an outline of the information that BAC Middle East gathers, and how it is used. Sending your CV to BAC or uploading any information to this website confirms your understanding and acceptance of these policies and procedures.

What information do we collect?

In order for us to provide you with the service you require we will need to collect, store and process your personal details, including:

  • Your name;
  • Your email address;
  • Information that you provide on your CV and covering email/letter;
  • Information that you provide as part of the website registration process; and
  • Other information that you provide us about your job preferences and requirements.

In some circumstances the information which you provide us will constitute sensitive personal data. Ordinarily this will include information about your racial or ethnic origin, your communal origin or religious beliefs, but may also, where you provide it, include information about your political affiliations or opinions, philosophical beliefs, criminal record, trade union membership health or sex life. We will only collate this information if you decide to send it to us. You may choose to provide us with such sensitive information if you wish, but it is not necessary for us to provide our services.

How we use your information

We use information held about you in the following ways:

To ensure that content from our site is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer so as to prevent any potential software glitches.

To provide you with information about job vacancies or our recruitment services that you request from us or which we feel may interest you.

To carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us.

To allow you to participate in interactive features of our service, when you choose to do so.

To carry out market research and marketing analysis for prospective clients; or to disseminate and conduct confidential candidate or market surveys. Any survey information or reports released will be purely statistical and will not contain any personal information.

To notify you about changes to our service.

As part of the recruitment service that BAC Middle East provides, it is necessary that we share your information amongst our recruitment consultants. We will only transfer your information to a prospective employer once we have your express permission to do so. This will normally be done verbally or telephonically.

Your personal information may also be processed by staff operating in such jurisdictions who work for us, our affiliates or sister companies. Such staff maybe engaged in, among other things, providing recruitment services, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. BAC Middle East will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely.


It is important to BAC Middle East that all information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Whilst we cannot always ensure that your personal information will not be lost or misused, we do keep our security measures under regular review to maintain their effectiveness.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet or email is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

BAC Middle East will store your personal data securely for a maximum period of six years from the date that you last logged in to our website, or from the date of any subsequent verbal or written communication that we have with you.
