At HelperChoice we care about your privacy. All our decisions are made with our members’ best interest at heart. We have drafted our policy as clearly as possible so you know what is going on with respect to your privacy on HelperChoice.
HelperChoice aims to connect the employers and domestic helpers globally to allow them to find the right match efficiently. Our registered members can upload their profiles, contact others for hiring and employment opportunities. Helper profiles and employer ads are visible to unregistered visitors, but they have no access to personal information. Helpers can contact employers only through HelperChoice’s online messaging system. Premium employers can see the domestic helpers phone number if domestic helpers have shared this information on their profile. The interest of all our members are central to our business ethics.
Maintaining your trust is important to us. Our members’ privacy is a priority at HelperChoice, and we are committed to protecting all parties who use our services. We do not share any data with third parties except where we have to comply with government department regulations. Please read further to learn more about our practices, including (a) what type of information is collected, (b) how the information is used and to whom we disclose the information, and (c) how we maintain security with shared information.
