Privacy Policy

This policy explains how we use any personal information we collect about you when you use ("EngineeringBecause"). It forms part our Terms and Conditions. Please also read our General Terms and User Generated Content Policy. 

If you ever have any queries please email us on and we'll be happy to help. 

What information do we collect about you and how do we use cookies?

We collect information about you when you register with us, update your resume, make connections, post comments and upload content. We also collect information when you complete our surveys, provide feedback, send us enquiries, apply for jobs, register for events or enter our competitions.

We sometimes use cookies to collect information about your use of our website to ensure that we give you the best possible experience on EngineeringBecause.

A cookie is a small file placed onto your device. Cookies enable us to identify your device, and enable the functioning of many EngineeringBecause features, including your ability to log into your account.

If you don’t want to receive cookies, you can change your browser settings. If you use EngineeringBecause without changing your browser settings, we'll assume that you’re happy to receive all cookies on the EngineeringBecause website. Please note that the EngineeringBecause site will not work properly without cookies.

How will we use this information about you?

We collect information about you to process your registration and set up your resume. We also collect information so that we can provide you with a personalised service on our site - for example, we place your networks of connections on your EngineeringBecause resume.

We will also carry out aggregate statistical analysis of our registered uses and our site content so we can see what parts of our site are popular. 

Will you pass my information on to other companies for marketing purposes?

This is totally up to you.  In the future we may want to join forces with a company which we think can offer you something really great, like a valuable discount or list of exciting jobs and the only way to get this through to you may be via email.  If you've ticked the consent box on registration to say you're ok with this then we'll pass your email over (along with strict guidelines that they can only email you those goodies and that's it).   If you ever change your mind just let us know and we'll be happy to take you off the list or happy to add you. 

How long will we keep this information about you?

If you request for your profile to be deleted, it will be taken down from our website, but it will remain on our backend database for 12 months in case we need to access the records to answer any queries or in case you change your mind and want to re-join. 

After 12 months your profile will be deleted completely apart from your email address and the date you decided to close your profile.  Any content uploaded by you onto our website will remain on the network.
