Employ Insight

PRIVACY POLICY

Welcome to www.employinsight.com (the “Site”), a website owned and operated by Employ Insight LLC (“Employ Insight,” “us,” or “we”). We know you are concerned about privacy, so we developed this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) to explain how we collect, use, and disclose information from you, our user (“You” or “Your”). As a guiding principal, our mission at Employ Insight is to connect employers with the right employees and connect job applicants with the right employer. We take the information You provide us and use it to help You find the right employee or employer, whatever the case may be, and offer a number of related Services (“Services”). Read on and we will tell You how this all works.

This Privacy Policy will apply whether You are a “Visitor” (which means that You simply browse the Site), an “Applicant” on Employ Insight (which means You are looking for a job and have registered with us and established an Account), or You are an employee, contractor or agent of a employer that is using the Services to locate potential employees (an “Employer”) operating in such capacity (in such case, You, an “Employer User”). Visitors, Applicants and Employer Users are individually referred to as a “User,” and collectively, as “Users”.

So we are clear about the terminology we are using, when we use the phrase “Personal Information”, we mean contact information (i.e., Your name, address, email address, and/or telephone number) and any other non-public information that is used or intended to be used to personally identify an individual, and information associated with the foregoing. When we use the phrase “Anonymous Information”, we mean information that is not associated with or linked to Your Personal Information. Anonymous Information does not enable identification of or contact with, individual persons.

BY USING OUR SITE OR SERVICES OR SUBMITTING PERSONAL INFORMATION THROUGH OUR SITE OR SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY AND YOU EXPRESSLY CONSENT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION ACCORDING TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY. YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE PROCESSED BY US IN THE COUNTRY WHERE IT WAS COLLECTED AS WELL AS OTHER COUNTRIES (INCLUDING THE UNITED STATES) WHERE LAWS REGARDING PROCESSING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE LESS STRINGENT THAN THE LAWS IN YOUR COUNTRY.

HOW WE COLLECT INFORMATION

Personal Information
We receive and store information You voluntary provide to us (either through the Site or in some other way). When You register with us, regardless of whether You are a Applicant or Employer User, we require You to provide certain Personal Information, such as Your name and email address. You may choose as part of certain Services to provide additional Personal Information. For example, if You are an Applicant creating Your profile on the Site (“Profile”), we collect categories of information relevant to Your Profile, including Your contact information, information about Your experience, education, desired salary, and travel limitations. In addition, as described in more detail below You can import resume, demographic, educational and other information from LinkedIn and potentially other websites in the future, and we will collect this information and associate it with You and Your Profile. We also ask You a number of behavioral questions that allow us to create Your strength profile – our secret sauce, if You will. As we associate Your answers and our analysis thereof with You and Your Profile, we will consider it to be Your Personal Information. We do all of this to help us in our effort to help You find the right job. Please remember that You do not have to submit any of this additional information, but we may not be able to provide You certain Services without that information.If You are an Employer User, You may also submit information to us about Your Employer and its job openings (including desired strengths and weaknesses). Certain of this information will be made publicly available on the Site; other information will only be made available to other Employer Users. Please remember that You do not have to submit any of this additional information, but we may not be able to provide You certain Services without that information.If you are an Applicant, there will be Personal Information in the Services provided by Employers to whom You have applied and their Employer Users. We will collect this information about You, but this will NOT be considered Your Personal Information. Each respective Employer will control this information. As a result, we will not provide you access to this information or the ability to use or control this information.
Anonymous Information
As You use our Service, we may also collect certain information, including Your Internet protocol address, browser type, access times, and A/B testing data. We also use Cookies and navigational data like Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) to gather information regarding the date and time of Your use of the Service. An “Internet protocol address” or “IP address” is a number that is automatically assigned to Your computer by Your Internet access provider when You use the Internet. In some cases Your IP address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if You use a consumer internet access provider, Your IP address probably varies from session to session. We track IP addresses solely in conjunction with session cookies to analyze our web page flow. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that a web site sends to Your computer’s hard drive while You are viewing a web site. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once You close Your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on Your computer until You delete them). Persistent Cookies can be removed by following Internet browser help file directions.We work with online partners to help manage and optimize our Internet business and communications. To do this, we may use web beacons, clear GIFs and cookies on this Site. The information we collect helps us learn things like what kinds of customers our Site attracts, which of our products most interest our customers, and what kinds of offers our customers like to see. Although our partners log the information coming from our Site on our behalf, we control how that data may and may not be used.
Our Relationship with LinkedIn
We have created interfaces that allow You to connect and interact with LinkedIn through our Site. We work with LinkedIn’s application programming interface (better known as their developer API) in a way that allows You to authorize us to access Your account on LinkedIn on Your behalf. In order to provide this authorization, You do not provide us with Your user name or password to LinkedIn, but You will need to log into LinkedIn directly through our Site. Once authorized by You, LinkedIn provides us a token that allows LinkedIn to recognize us when we ask, on Your behalf, for access to Your account information. When You click “OK, I’ll allow it” to grant Employ Insight access to Your LinkedIn account, we will import certain information from LinkedIn to pre-populate Your Profile. You can set the duration of our access when You initially authorize our access, and You can revoke our access to LinkedIn at any time by amending the appropriate settings from within Your account settings on LinkedIn. You can also authorize us to send information about your strengths back to LinkedIn.Please note that we do not control the data LinkedIn sends us. The information you store on LinkedIn is subject to LinkedIn’s privacy policy. However, once you associate that information with your Profile on our Site, this Privacy Policy governs that copy of the information.
Employers
Additionally, if You are the Employer User that creates the account for Your Employer, we will collect certain Personal Information in order to process the Employer’s subscription, including a credit card number and associated billing information, and charge and collect the subscription fees. We refer to this information as “Billing information”. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Privacy Policy, we will only use this Billing Information to process and collect fees.
