Based on the configurations set in the back end (Provisioning), the candidate is going to have to choose when creating a new account for who he is going to be seen. If you have the "Ask external candidates to set their visibility settings when creating an account profile" enabled, these options are going to be displayed when a new candidate registers himself.

You have the option to let the external candidate to decide about his own visibility inside the recruiting environment, by enabling this option in the back end(Provisioning), or you can disable this option in the back end(Provisioning) and the candidate visibility privacy is going to be set always as "Any company recruiter worldwide".

If Data Privacy Option is disabled, the expected behavior is that the system will set all the candidates to "Any company recruiter worldwide". Which means that the options "Any company recruiter in my country of residence" and "Only recruiters managing jobs I apply to" will not be taken in consideration if these options were chosen by previous candidates who applied during Candidate Privacy Options was enabled.

Note: Initial options chosen by the candidate will still show in Ad hoc reports but the system will only read all candidates as "Any company recruiter in my country of residence" if Candidate Privacy Options is disabled.

To enable or disable this feature, please contact Professional Services.
