Privacy Policy

Last modified: March 10, 2012

There are many different ways you can use our services – to search for and share information, to communicate with other people or users. When you share information with us, for example by creating a HiringSolved Account or entering information on candidates or jobs, we take the privacy and security of your information very seriously. As you use our services, we want you to be clear how we’re using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy.

Our Privacy Policy explains:

  • How we protect information that you upload or input into HiringSolved
  • What information we collect and why we collect it.
  • How we use that information.
  • The choices we offer, including how to access and update information.

Information you upload or input (candidates, jobs, notes, etc)

Your information is yours. We will not share this information with any other user or party without your explicit permission. Many of our services allow you to upload or otherwise input information into your private HiringSolved database. Examples include uploading or importing candidates, entering jobs, notes, tags, etc. Any information you input is private to you and your team members (those users whom you have explicitly granted access). Your information is protected by multiple layers of security which are designed to prevent unauthorized access.

Information we collect

We collect both anonymous and non-anonymous information to provide better services to all of our users.

We collect information in two ways:

  • Information you give us. For example, many of our services require you to sign up for a HiringSolved Account. When you do, we’ll ask for personal information, like your name, email address, telephone number or credit card.

  • Information we get from your use of our services. We may collect information about the services that you use and how you use them, like when you use our social integration services or you view, rate, or contact candidates through our service. This information includes:

    • Device information

    • We may collect device-specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information including phone number). HiringSolved may associate your device identifiers or phone number with your HiringSolved Account.

    • Log information

    • When you use our services or view content provided by HiringSolved, we may automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. This may include:

      • details of how you used our service, such as your search queries.

      • telephony log information like your phone number, calling-party number, forwarding numbers, time and date of calls, duration of calls, SMS routing information and types of calls.

      • Internet protocol address.

      • device event information such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL.

      • cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your HiringSolved Account.

    • Location information

    • When you use a location-enabled HiringSolved service, we may collect and process information about your actual location, like GPS signals sent by a mobile device. We may also use various technologies to determine location, such as sensor data from your device that may, for example, provide information on nearby Wi-Fi access points and cell towers.

    • Unique application numbers

    • Certain services include a unique application number. This number and information about your installation (for example, the operating system type and application version number) may be sent to HiringSolved when you install or uninstall that service or when that service periodically contacts our servers, such as for automatic updates.

    • Local storage

    • We may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.

    • Cookies and anonymous identifiers

    • We use various technologies to collect and store information when you visit a HiringSolved service, and this may include sending one or more cookies or anonymous identifiers to your device. We also use cookies and anonymous identifiers when you interact with services we offer to our partners, such as advertising services or HiringSolved features that may appear on other sites.

How we use information we collect

We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect HiringSolved and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content – like giving you more relevant search results and candidate matching services.

When you contact HiringSolved, we may keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements, or with your permission, other notifications.

We use information collected from cookies and other technologies, like pixel tags, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services. We may combine personal information from one service with information, including personal information, from other HiringSolved services – for example to make it easier to share things with people you know. We will ask for your consent before using information for a purpose other than those that are set out in this Privacy Policy.

Transparency and choice

You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, it’s important to remember that many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. For example, we may not remember your preferences.

Information you share

Some of our services let you share information with others. Sharing with your team members (those which you have explicitly invited) is a default in HiringSolved. Keep in mind that by inviting users to your team you are implicitly sharing information about your jobs and candidates with them. Our services provide you with different options on sharing and removing your content.

Information we share

We do not share personal information with companies, organizations and individuals unless one of the following circumstances apply:

  • With your consent

    • We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of HiringSolved when we have your consent to do so.
  • With team administrators

    • If your HiringSolved Account is managed for you by a team administrator (for example, for HiringSolved users working in teams) then your team administrator and resellers who provide user support to your organization will have access to team administration and may be able to:

      • view statistics regarding your account, like statistics regarding applications you install.

      • change your account password.

      • suspend or terminate your account access.

      • access or retain information stored as part of your account.

      • receive your account information in order to satisfy applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.

      • restrict your ability to delete or edit information or privacy settings.

    • Please refer to your team administrator’s privacy policy for more information.

  • For legal reasons

    • We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of HiringSolved if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:

      • meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.

      • enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations.

      • detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.

      • protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of HiringSolved, our users or the public as required or permitted by law.

We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners – like publishers, advertisers or connected sites. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our services. If HiringSolved is involved in a merger, acquisition or asset sale, we will continue to ensure the confidentiality of any personal information and give affected users notice before personal information is transferred or becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Information security

We work hard to protect HiringSolved and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. In particular:

  • We encrypt our services using SSL.

  • We review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems.

  • We restrict access to personal information to HiringSolved employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.

Application

Our Privacy Policy applies to all of the services offered by HiringSolved Inc. and its affiliates, including services offered on other sites (such as job boards), but excludes services that have separate privacy policies that do not incorporate this Privacy Policy.

Our Privacy Policy does not apply to services offered by other companies or individuals, including products or sites that may be displayed to you in search results, sites that may include HiringSolved services, or other sites linked from our services. Our Privacy Policy does not cover the information practices of other companies and organizations who advertise our services, and who may use cookies, pixel tags and other technologies to serve and offer relevant ads.

Enforcement

We regularly review our compliance with our Privacy Policy. We also adhere to several self regulatory frameworks. When we receive formal written complaints, we will contact the person who made the complaint to follow up. We work with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that we cannot resolve with our users directly.

Changes

Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will not reduce your rights under this Privacy Policy without your explicit consent. We will post any privacy policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice (including, for certain services, email notification of privacy policy changes). We will also keep prior versions of this Privacy Policy in an archive for your review.
