Support » Plugin: WP Job Manager » GDPR and ADD ONS Resume manager, alert, applications

  • Resolved bianca447


    Hi! For the GDPR regulation, how did you conform the use of ADD ON “Resume Manager” “Job ALERT” and “APPLICATIONS” plugins?

    I have seen for the last version of wp job manager a first step forward for GRPD but for the management of resume, applications and alerts, how do we behave with the plugins that manage them (ADD-ONS)? Have you planned updates?

    Thank you very much, it’s a very important and sensitive issue that has a deadline on May 25th

    Hi there,

    I’ve responded via email and on the comment you made on the WP Job Manager blog post about version 1.31.0, but I’ll reply here as well for the benefit of other users.

    WP Job Manager and its addons don’t offer individual user data deletion or extraction. WordPress core is in charge of user records. You can read more about WordPress and GDPR compliance tools at the links I’ve given below:

    If you’re interested in what WP Job Manager core deletes now, upon plugin deletion, you can check out this issue:

    There may the third-party plugins that could accomplish user deletion (and user data deletion) for you. Note that though the “Delete Data on Uninstall” option implemented into WP Job Manager core won’t delete users, it will take away their employer or candidate role.

    Database information is all stored in wp_posts and wp_postmeta for Resume Manager and Applications, so using a third-party plugin as mentioned above, or going through and removing user resumes and applications will delete that user data. It may get a bit tricky in the file uploads if you try to remove them after you’ve deleted resume and application data, so we’d recommend removing file uploads first. Job Alerts don’t involve any file uploads, so there’s nothing to worry about there.

    Let us know if you have other questions. Cheers!

    I did not understand.

    If a candidate has created an account on my website and he has job alerts enabled. When I delete the user from the admin>menu>users he will no longer receive alerts, correct?

    But I have to search manually for candidates and delete their resumes even if I have deleted their account?

    Thank you

    Hi @bigdropgr,

    I understand that you cannot support it here. But users who have installed this plugin needs to know a answer on it!

    Since the fine of a company does not meet the requirements of the GDPR is not low!
    Is there a option to delete his or her profile when they login in there resume or profile envirementh?

    Best regards,

    Hi @lectortje,

    No — there is no user profile deletion feature implemented in WP Job Manager, as user-related functionality is in WordPress Core. As I mentioned previously, there should be third-party plugins that could accomplish user deletion (and user data deletion) for you.
