Sometimes we sign up with a recruiter or a job site because we’re intently looking for a new role, and other times we might just be browsing something that caught our eye. And, you may have noticed that when you’ve signed up to a particular recruiter, emails start appearing from others that you never signed up to. That’s because one agency may sell your data on to another, or it might just be another agency in the same group of companies. Either way, it means your inbox is filling up with stuff you don’t want.
If you have personal data in a company’s database it’s at risk of being lost or stolen in a data breach. If that happens, it can make you more vulnerable by it being used against you in a scam. So, if you don’t want a company to have your data any more, or they simply no longer need it, then use Rightly Protect to get it deleted. If a company doesn’t have your data, they can’t lose it or have it stolen. With Rightly Protect you can delete your data from any recruiter’s site, and even from any other company, in one go.
Unsubscribing doesn’t delete your data.
Even if you’ve hit ‘unsubscribe’ in an email, your personal info can still be exposed in a data theft and could fall into the hands of criminals, because unsubscribing from emails doesn’t delete your data.

Recruitment apps and websites collect a wide range of personal data which can include:
- Name and address
- Marital status

Sometimes, it’s helpful to have your data shared. But not without your consent. What happens to your data and who it's shared with often isn't made clear, and in particular, that it gets sold on and used to better target you with advertising.
Understandably, many people find this extremely invasive.
Why should I delete the data held by recruiters?
The data that recruitment apps and websites store is private.
In a data breach, or if a company sells your data, it can fall into the wrong hands and be used in a scam against you.
What happens to your data should be up to you.
Collecting all this personal data might help the app or website find whatever role you’re looking for. But when you’re done with your recruitment app, the data you leave behind puts you at risk.
Many apps and websites sell this information to third parties, and many have a long history of data breaches. Don't get stung by a data theft.
The easiest way to stop recruitment apps using your personal data is to use Rightly Protect to send a deletion request. We'll connect you to as many companies as you need and request erasure of your personal data, in one go. And for free.
