TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We collect two basic types of information from you when you provide it to us or when you use
or interact with our Services: personal information and non-personal information.
Personal information includes all information that relates to you or which are opinions about you
personally and either identifies or may be used to identify you personally (collectively,
“personal information”). We may collect the following types of personal information from you
depending upon the device you are using and how you interact with us or use or interact with our
Services, such as your:
- Contact Information. Name, mailing address, email address, phone number, and other
- Demographic Information. Date of birth and gender. You may also voluntarily provide
us with racial or ethnic background information.
- Device Information. IP address, browser type and version, browser plug-in types and
versions, operating system and platform, device type and device identifiers.
- Account Information. If you create an account, we may store and use your name, email
address, zip or postal code and other personal information you may provide with your
account. You can modify some of the personal information associated with your account. If you believe that someone has created an unauthorized account, you can request its
- Resume / Employment Information. Some of our Services permit you to upload your
resume or provide employment-related information that would typically be found within
a resume (i.e., current income, previous employment, education information, etc.). Some
of the information contained within your resume may be considered personal
information that has been anonymized (collectively, “non-personal information”). When we
combine non-personal information with personal information, we treat the combined information as personal information.
You can always refuse to provide your personal information, but please note that some personal
information is necessary to provide our Services.
HOW WE COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATIONWe need to collect personal information from you in order to provide you with our Services, as
well as to improve your experience. You may provide us with personal information in several
ways, including, for example when you:

ensured by Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission in accordance
with Article 46(2)(c) of the General Data Protection Regulation, or any equivalent clauses

- whether there is an ongoing legal claim that relates to any business (or otherwise) relationship you have with us, or that is otherwise related to your relationship with us; and
- whether any applicable law, statute, or regulation allows for a specific retention period.
Your Privacy Rights
You may have – in accordance with applicable data protection laws – the following rights when
it comes to our handling of your personal information. Please note that many of these rights are
not absolute, and we may have grounds for refusing to comply with your request to exercise
them (for example, where we are (a) required or permitted by law to process your personal data
in a way that is incompatible with your request, or (b) able to rely on exemptions under data
protection law which entitle us to process your personal data in a way that is incompatible with
your request). Where such circumstances apply, we will inform you of this at the time you make
a request to exercise your rights.
- Right of access – you may have the right to request a copy of the personal information
we have about you and to request supporting information explaining how the personal
information is used;

personal information about you;

in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and to transmit such
information to another controller;
- Right to withdraw consent – where we process your personal information based on
consent (including direct marketing consents), you have the right to withdraw consent at
any time. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing based on consent
before its withdrawal. Furthermore, even in case of a withdrawal we may continue to use
your personal information as permitted or required by law; and
- Right to object – where we are processing your personal information based on a
legitimate interest (or those of a third party) you may challenge this. However, we may
be entitled to continue processing your personal information where we can demonstrate
that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information (which override
your rights and freedoms), or where continuing to process your personal information is
relevant to the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. You also have the right
to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing
If you would like to exercise any of these rights or in case you should have any concerns about
how we process your personal information, please contact us using the information below.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights).
However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or
excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure
your right to access your personal information, or access someone else's personal information on
their behalf (or to exercise any of the other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer
than a month if your request is complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we
will notify you and keep you updated. Should we be unable to comply with your request, we will
provide an explanation.
