Privacy Statement

1. What is the Cross Border Partnership for Employment Services?

CBPES was established to help make things easier for those who wish to commute daily or weekly across the border region in order to work. It does this by attempting to overcome at least some of the obstacles which people face. In particular, it provides pathways to the information required by people moving across the border, for example, jobseekers that need information on employment and training opportunities on both sides of the border, on taxation and the social security systems. The Partnership also aims to assist employers by providing them with access to a larger pool of labour i.e. jobseekers living on both sides of the border. Advice is available to employers on a range of cross-border recruitment issues.

2. What personal information is being collected and transmitted to the Cross border Job Fair site and how it will be used.

At the time of registration for an event the following information is required:-

Jobseeker - Name, Gender, County, current job status, and age range. Jobseeker registration data will be held for the entirety of that event in which the jobseeker registers for, and for 5 working days following the event completion. Data will then be permanently deleted.

Employer - company name, company contact name & job title, e-mail address, contact phone No, nationality,  county, organisation type, sector, short biography and logo.  This data is stored to build an employer database and to inform employers of future events and promotions. Employers can request data be deleted by emailing

3. How is the data being collected and by whom

We will never collect any unnecessary personal data from you and do not process your information in any way other than those already specified in this notice. When uploading a CV or completing an Expression of interest on the site, the data is sent directly to the employers registered e-mail address. The employer will receive a formatted version of the document, the reason is to demonstrate suitability to the job requirement and to encourage the employers to arrange interviews with the candidates.

 4. Who has access to your information and to whom is it disclosed

Upon registration your data is stored in a secure server located within the EU. The data provided upon registration is available to those who hold an admin status on the Cross Border Job Fair system, until such time as it is automatically deleted 5 days after the event ends. This data is available to system admins so they can manage the event and ensure employers receive submitted CV/EOI from potential candidates. Once CV’s/ EOI’s are uploaded, the data is then transferred directly to the registered employer’s e-mail address associated with the advertised vacancy.

 5. How can you verify, modify or delete your information

To have your information removed from our system pre-event you can contact us at and request your data be deleted. If we receive a request from you to exercise any of the above rights, we may ask you to verify your identity before acting on the relevant request, this is to ensure that your data is protected and kept secure.

 6. How long do we keep your data?

Your data is stored from the point of registration (for an event) right through completion of that said event and for 5 working days following the completion of the event. Once the 5 working days have passed all data relating to your registration will be deleted apart from your name and which job opening (role) if any you have applied for. This is to enable us to link jobseekers with companies after an event if there are any issues with cv applications not being received.
