We may also collect this and other types of personal information, such as references and employment objectives during the course of dealing with you, for example if you are considered for a particular role.
Where practical, the purpose for which we collect personal information and the consequences of not providing it will be made clear at the time of collection.
Users who are not registered with Omniat can generally visit the Omniat website without revealing who they are or other personal information. If you provide us with personal information through the Omniat website we may log your usage of the Omniat site for the purposes below.
