In this case, such a recruitment agency or an employer may directly contact you to schedule interviews, etc. Please note that any information you share with the recruitment agency or employer will be governed by their terms and policies.

Security Statement

WPU RISE has put in place various physical, electronic and managerial procedures to try to safeguard and secure the information we collect.

The information we collect is stored with third-party data centers that have a holistic security model. Please note that WPU RISE shall not be liable for any misuse or loss of information carried out by such third-party data centers. Furthermore, we also rely on your cell phones’ strong security model to ensure that there is no information or security leak, unless intentionally processed for authentication.

However, please note that while we implement many security measures on this site, 100% security cannot be guaranteed.
