Privacy Policy

Data privacy is of paramount importance to DataMined. This privacy policy sets out how DataMined uses and protects any information that is provided to us by companies, institutions, data providers and candidates.

Data Protection and Consent

DataMined is a registered HR Consultancy firm with registration number MBRS1023693.

In principle, DataMined will only commence Pre-employment Screening (PES) once they have the candidate’s signed consent to do so. The consent process clearly defines the purpose of the personal information gathered and only data required necessary for the PES is collected.

Use of Personal Data

DataMined only uses a candidate’s personal data for the purposes of PES as specified on their consent form and it will not sell or otherwise release any personal information to third parties for marketing purposes. DataMined reserves the right to disclose personal information as required by law or in order to protect our rights and/or comply with a legal proceeding, court order or a request from a regulator.

Subject Access Rights

Candidates may request details of their personal information which is held by DataMined. A fee will be payable. If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please inform us as soon as possible. We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.

Storage of Data

In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, DataMined has put in place rigorous physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure all the information we collect. Our in-house servers are backed up at a secure, remote location. All our systems are password protected to ensure there is no unauthorised access to personal data.

Sharing of Data & Data Transfer

Data obtained by us may be be transferred to jurisdictions outside Malawi to its trusted partners who are professional companies with unquestionable repute. However, there may be different data protection standards. DataMined is unable to guarantee the same protection rights once data is transmitted across the border.


All our employees are thoroughly vetted and sign confidentiality agreements and are periodically monitored for compliance.
