To All JobMarket Advertisers and Readers
A recruitment advertisement which does not identify the employer or the employment agency on its behalf is a blind advertisement (“Blind Ad.”). Placing a Blind Ad. that directly soliciting job applicant’s personal data would constitute unfair collection of personal data, contrary to the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance (Cap 486) and the relevant Code of Practice on Human Resource Management issued by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data. In case of breach, the relevant advertisers would receive an enforcement notice from the Privacy Commissioner.
Job applicant is advised not to respond to such Blind Ad.
