Our primary purpose in collecting personal information from you is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience. This allows us to provide services and features that most likely meet your needs, and to customize our Service to make your experience safer and easier. We only collect personal information about you that we consider necessary for achieving this purpose.
In general, you can use the Application without telling us who you are or revealing personal information about yourself. Once you become a registered User, we require you to provide various contact and identity information, and other personal information as indicated on the relevant forms on the Application. Where possible, on these forms we indicate which fields are required and which fields are optional.
In addition, as you use the Application, you can from time to time enter or send to us personal information. You always have the option to not provide information by choosing not to become a registered User or by not using the particular feature of the Application for which the information is being collected.
We also automatically track certain information about you based upon your behavior on our Application and store it through log files. We use this information to do internal research on our Users’ demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand, protect and serve you and our community. This information may include the URL that you just came from, which URL you next go, your computer browser information, and your IP address.
We and our partners and other service providers use technologies such as cookies and similar technologies, including Google Analytics. These technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the Service, tracking Users’ movements around the Application and to gather demographic information about our User base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual as well as aggregated basis. More information on Google Analytics is available here.
We partner with a third party to either display advertising on our Application or to manage our advertising on other sites. Our third party partner may use technologies such as cookies to gather information about your activities on the Application and other sites in order to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests. If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you interest-based ads, you may opt-out by clicking here. Please note this does not opt you out of being served ads. You will continue to receive generic ads.
We use personal information in the file we maintain about you, and other information we obtain from your current and past activities on the Application, to provide to you the Service offered by the Application (including delivering to you the messages and notifications provided by the Service); resolve service and billing disputes; troubleshoot problems; measure consumer interest in our products and services, inform you about online and offline offers, products, services, events and updates; deliver information to you that, in some cases, is relevant to your interests, such as product news; customize your experience; detect and protect us against error, fraud and other criminal activity; enforce our General Terms and Conditions of use; provide you with system or administrative messages and notifications, and as otherwise described to you at the time of collection.
We may also use personal information about you to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to analyze Service usage, to improve our content and product offerings, and to customize the Application’s content, layout, and services. These uses improve the Application and better tailor it to meet your needs, so as to provide you with a smooth, efficient, safe and customized experience while using the Application. If you wish to subscribe to our newsletters, we will use your name and email address to send the newsletter to you. Out of respect for your privacy, we provide you a way to unsubscribe in the email.

Aggregated Data. We may aggregate User information and disclose such information in a non-personally identifiable manner to third parties. However, in these situations, we do not disclose any information that could be used to identify you personally.
Subsidiaries and Affiliates; Service Providers. We may from time to time use the services of affiliates, subsidiaries and unrelated service providers in the operation of the Application, and may disclose personal information to them in the course of our use of their services. For example, we may use the services of third-party hosting companies to host the operation of the Application. This may involve the hosting of data, including personal information, on servers operated by those hosting companies. We take care to use only service providers that we believe are reputable, have equivalent or better security safeguards in place than us, and able to live up to our and your expectations, including about the handling of confidential information. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us.
Legal Requests and Business Transitions; Emergencies. In certain situations, we may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. We may disclose your personal information (a) to any governmental authority as part of an investigation to determine our compliance with any applicable law, rule, or regulation (including privacy laws, rules, and regulations), (b) in response to a court order, subpoena, discovery request, or other lawful judicial or administrative proceeding, (c) as otherwise required or permitted under any applicable law, rule, or regulation, and (d) in good faith, to protect or defend our rights or property or that of other people, and (e) if we are involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Application of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.
We strive to protect your personal information. For security of transactions, we use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, which encrypts any information, such as credit card number and billing information, you send to us electronically. The encryption process protects your information, by scrambling it before it is sent to us from your computer. Once we receive your transmission, we make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our system. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. More information about security is available on the Site. If you have any questions about the security of your personal information, you can contact us at email@example.com.
Our customers that are recruitment agencies are responsible for either (i) providing to us the personal information that we receive from them regarding the individual Users to whom we provide access to our Service, or (ii) provisioning access to our Service to those individual Users so that they may use our Service and in the course of doing so provide to us their personal information that we use to provide the Service to them. As a result, those customers are the data controllers in relation to your personal information, and we are their data processor, responsible to them for processing that information and for maintaining the confidentiality of that information, all in accordance with our agreements with those customers. If you have concerns about how the Service uses your personal information, or if you wish to know what personal information we have about you or review, amend or delete your personal information in our custody, please contact the customer to which you provided your personal information in relation to the Service or that provisioned your account on the Service.
We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you with the Service. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements; this retention period may extend past the point at which you close your account, but in general, subject to the foregoing, we will delete the information associated with a recruitment agency customer’s account (including applicable User information) within 60 days of the termination of their account with us.
