Mendeley Careers Privacy Policy

This privacy policy describes how Mendeley Limited (“Mendeley”) will use the personal data collected through Mendeley Careers, a service of Mendeley.  This privacy policy incorporates the Mendeley privacy policy, which applies to Mendeley Careers along with the additional terms below.  This privacy policy does not extend to any third party website that you may access from Mendeley Careers.

Collection of Personal Information

When you register for a Mendeley Careers account, we’ll ask you for your first and last name, username and password. 

When you create a Mendeley Careers profile, we’ll ask you for additional personal information, such as your email address, postal address, phone number, education and professional background, CV and photo.

Profile Settings

On the Career Profile page, you can choose whether to hide your Mendeley Careers profile, including your CV, from employers, recruiters and other human resource professionals who pay for access to Mendeley Careers (“Employers”).  When your profile is hidden, it will not be searchable or viewable by Employers as described on your Career Profile page.

Alternatively, you can choose not to hide your profile so that your profile will be seen as submitted by you.  When your profile is not hidden, your profile, including your CV and contact information within the profile, will be available for searching, viewing and downloading by Employers who request CVs matching your profile to be sent to them.

You can make your profile hidden, make your profile not hidden, and update, change or delete your profile at any time by logging into your Mendeley Careers account and going to your Career Profile page to make your desired changes.

Please note that your current employer may be a customer of Mendeley Careers, or a client of one of our customers. We cannot restrict the customers who access profiles on Mendeley Careers and cannot be held responsible for any eventuality.

Please further note that although we try to grant access to job seeker profile information only to Mendeley Customers and require that they agree to access and use job seeker profile information solely for their recruitment-related purposes, we do not verify their identity or control their use, disclosure or retention of the information they access.

Communications preferences

By registering on Mendeley Careers or signing up to email alerts and information, you agree that we will use your email address to send you job content, careers advice, details of companies who are recruiting and other career-related information. We sometimes combine the data we capture about your visits to the site with your email address to send automated marketing emails to you. You may opt-out of these communications at any time by using the unsubscribe mechanism or other means provided within the communications that you receive or by contacting us a privacy [at] mendeley [dot] com.


We may change this privacy policy from time to time. Any changes will be posted on this page with an updated revision date.
