This Privacy Policy applies to data collected by HireIQ Solutions through the web sites that display (or link to) these terms.  It does not apply to those HireIQ Solutions web sites that do not display (or link to) this policy or third-party web sites that you may access from our web sites.  We also do not control the data use practices of employers or others who may access your information from our web sites.  We encourage you to review the privacy policies of those other web sites so that you can understand how they collect, use and share your information.

Information Collection

When you visit our web sites you may provide us with two types of information:  personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis and web site use information collected on an aggregate or anonymous basis as you and others browse our web site.  If you choose to correspond with us through e-mail, we may retain the content of your e-mail message together with your e-mail address and our responses.

Personal information is information that can be reasonably used to identify you or any other individual to whom the information may relate personally.  We do not collect personal information unless you or your prospective employer choose to provide it to us.

·       request support for our services;

The types of personal information we collect may include (but are not limited to):

·       your first and last name;

·       your home, billing, or other physical address (including street name, name of a city or town, state/province);

·       your e-mail address;

·       your telephone number;

·       any other identifier that permits HireIQ Solutions (or those parties you authorize) to make physical or online contact with you;

·       any information that HireIQ Solutions collects online from you and maintains in association with your account, such as:

·       your HireIQ Solutions username,

·       your HireIQ Solutions password,

·       your billing information.

HireIQ Solutions uses the personal information you provide to:

·       create and maintain your accounts;

·       process, fulfill, and follow-up on your orders;

·       register your services;

·       answer your questions;

·       register you in programs (per your request);

·       send you information;

·       send you surveys.

We also use this personal information to provide you with information related to your account and the services you purchased from us, to better understand your needs and interests, to improve our service, and to personalize communications.

Information Sharing
HireIQ Solutions may disclose your personal information to third parties under any of the following circumstances:

·       To enable third parties to see your personal information and contact you through the authorized use of our services in the employment process;

·       As may be required to fulfill orders, to conduct billing/credit card processing, to provide our services, and for e-mail housing (as a consequence of uses described in this policy);

·       As required by law (such as responding to a valid subpoena, warrant, audit, or agency action, or to prevent fraud);

·       For research activities, including the production of statistical reports (such aggregated information is used to describe our services to current and prospective partners and other third parties, and is not used to contact the subjects of the report);

·       In the context of a business transaction, such as a merger, acquisition, consolidation, or divestiture (pursuant to a pledge of confidentiality under which the recipient agrees to use the information for no purpose other than carrying out the transaction).

Because HireIQ Solutions is a United States corporation and information collected on our web site is stored in whole or in part in the United States, your information may be subject to U.S. law.  Information that you post in public areas of our web sites will be accessed, used and stored by others around the world, including those in countries that might not have legislation that guarantees adequate protection of personal information as defined by your country of residence.

While HireIQ Solutions takes measures to safeguard your information from unauthorized access or inappropriate use by third parties, HireIQ Solutions does not control these third parties and we are not responsible for their use of information that you post or otherwise make available in public areas of the web site.

We share aggregated anonymous information about you with HireIQ Solutions’ clients, partners, other web site visitors and other third parties.  We may also aggregate data on an anonymous basis with respect to job qualifications, schooling, age, experience level or other information relevant to the job search or competition among job seekers for any such job.  Such aggregated data does not identify users individually, and may be made available to employers, fellow job seekers or community members.

We may supply technology, hosting, hiring management and related services to other companies in order to power recruitment areas on their respective web sites (referred to as “Hosted Career Sites”). Personal and/or demographic information supplied by you via the Hosted Career Sites becomes part of the HireIQ Solutions database, but it is not accessible by anyone other than you, HireIQ Solutions and the company hosting the career site unless you have consented to sharing such information with other parties.  If you attempt to register with HireIQ Solutions after registering with a Hosted Career Web site, HireIQ Solutions will recognize your information and you will be able to use the information you provided to the Hosted Career Web site in your HireIQ Solutions account registration.

Information gathered on a page in a Hosted Career web site area or on a co-branded web site may be retained by both HireIQ Solutions and the other company.  In that instance, the use of such information by the other company will be subject to the privacy policy of that company and HireIQ Solutions is not responsible for that company’s use of your personal information.

Additionally, if you apply for a position through a Hosted Career web site or a co-branded web site, you may be asked to provide information on your age, gender or race where permitted by law. You should understand that this information should only be used by employers in accordance with applicable law. However, HireIQ Solutions is not responsible for the actions of such employers. All such information provided will be kept separate by HireIQ Solutions from your expression of interest in any job opportunity.  Providing this information is strictly voluntary and you will not be subject to any adverse action or treatment from HireIQ Solutions if you choose not to provide this information.

Opting Out

We may enter into strategic marketing alliances or partnerships with third parties who will be given access to personal information including your name, address, telephone number and e-mail only if you OPT IN to receive such communications.  In connection with strategic marketing alliances or partnerships, we will retain all ownership rights to the information, and we will not share information regarding your social security number or other personal financial data.

HireIQ Solutions makes every effort to provide you with the ability to opt-in and opt-out of receiving communications from us and/or our partners.  We may send you e-mail about your account, about the services you have purchased, to remind you about services that are available, or in response to your questions. We may also send you e-mail with information and/or special offers about products and services that may be of interest to you, unless you indicate that you do not want to receive them.  In addition, with your consent, our business partners may send you such information.  You may let us know whether or not you would like to receive information, special offers, and promotional materials from us or our business partners. Please note that if you choose not to accept promotional e-mails, you may not receive special offers that may be of value to you.
