This policy describes the types of information we collect, how we use the information, with whom we share it, and the choices you can make about the collection, use and disclosure of such information. The phrase “Personal Information" refers to information that identifies you, such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, credit card number or other data.
We may obtain information about you from various sources, including our sites, when you call or email us or communicate with us through social media, or when you participate in events, contests or other promotions. We also may obtain information about you from our parent, affiliate or subsidiary companies, business partners and other third parties and publicly available information.
The types of information we may obtain include:
We collect information stored in your Talenthoney profile that you authorize us to access when you use your profile to enact features on the sites, such as the ability to pre-populate our registration form or a job application. Talenthoney provides software applications (“Apps") available to the public.
If you decide to download one of our Apps, we will collect your profile information, including your social network site user ID, work email address, name, city, state, social network site profile image URL, and employment history, including job titles and company names.
In addition, when you visit our sites or use our Apps, we may collect certain information by automated means, such as cookies and web beacons, as described in more detail below. The information we may collect by automated means includes:
How We Use Collected Information
We may use the information we obtain to:
We may also use non-personally identifiable information and certain technical information about your computer and your access of the sites (including your internet protocol address) in order to operate, maintain, manage, and protect the sites. We collect this information by automated means, such as cookies and web beacons, as described in more detail below.
If we seek to use the information we obtain about you in other ways, Talenthoney will provide specific notice and request your consent at the time of collection.
When you apply for a job through the site or Apps, or publicly post your resume to our job bank database, employers will have access to information about you and your interest in such employment opportunities. Those employers may use your information to contact you directly. Additionally, when you apply for a career through the site or Apps, the information supplied by you becomes part of the Talenthoney database but also may become part of that particular employer's database.
We may combine certain non-personally identifiable Aggregate Data about our users and use such anonymous data to prepare reports for our users (typically employers or educators). “Aggregate Data" is the demographic information (such as zip code, age, gender, race or ethnicity) and employment information (such as occupation, education and experience) of many users and individuals that is combined together for reporting purposes.
Aggregate Data is used to analyze the characteristics of various demographic populations and does not identify any specific individuals. All such reports sold only contain Aggregate Data which cannot be used to identify any individuals.
We also may share personal information with our service providers who help us in the delivery of our products and services. These service providers may only disclose or use the information as necessary to perform services on our behalf or as otherwise required by law.
Other than instances where users opt to publicly post their information to our resume database, provide it via a job application, include it in a job posting or otherwise provide permission to share it, we do not sell our users' Personal Information to anyone for any reason.
Reminder, when posting jobs and resumes, our users decide for themselves how much contact information they wish to provide. All users should be aware, that when they choose to display or provide any information (such as email addresses or other contact information on a public resume) via the sites or any other method, that information can be collected and used by others. This may result in unsolicited messages from third parties, for which Talenthoney is NOT responsible.
Talenthoney may disclose specific user information when determined, in good faith, that such disclosure is necessary to comply with federal, state, local and international law, to cooperate with or assist law enforcement authorities and agencies, to prevent a crime or protect national security, or to protect the interests or safety of Talenthoney or other users of our site or Apps.
In addition, Personal Information we have collected may be passed on to a third party in the event of a transfer of ownership or assets or a bankruptcy or other corporate reorganization of Talenthoney LLC.
User Resume Privacy Options
Posting your resume on the site(s) or via Apps potentially puts you in front of thousands of employers with opportunities each day. When you post your resume, the site automatically creates a registration for you using the email address and password that you supply. When you return to the sites in the future you will use that same email address and password to access and edit your existing profile, data, and resume.
1. Private Posting
This option allows you to post your resume without having it searchable or viewable to employers. The benefit is that you can quickly and easily apply for jobs without retyping your information, and you provide your resume only to those employers you are interested.
2. Standard Posting
This option provides that any registered employer who purchases access to the database can view your resume and contact details. This option gives you the most visibility to the broadest employment audience by making your resume searchable in our job bank and resume database.
We cannot control the use of resumes by third parties who access such resumes while they are in our database. You may remove your resume from the database at any time. Talenthoney attempts to limit access to our searchable resume database to legitimate users such as paying employers, recruiters, hiring managers, headhunters and human resource professionals, but cannot guarantee that other parties will not gain access to this database.
Note that employers, recruiters and others who have paid for access to that database, as well as parties who have otherwise gained access to the database may retain a copy of your resume in their own files or databases. Talenthoney cannot control the retention, use or privacy of resumes or profiles that have been downloaded by third parties. Therefore, users should not put information you would not want made public in your resume.
Tracking Choices, Cookies, and 3rd Party Advertisers and Users
A “cookie" is a text file that websites send to a visitor's computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor's browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A “web beacon," is also called a Web bug or a pixel tag or a clear GIF. Used in combination with cookies, a Web beacon is an often-transparent graphic image, that is placed on a Web site or in an e-mail that is used to monitor the behavior of the user visiting the Web site, application, or sending the e-mail.
We use third-party advertising companies who may place or access cookies on your computer hard drive to distinguish your web browser uniquely and to keep track of information relating to serving ads on your web browser, such as the type of ads shown and the webs pages on which the ads appeared. These companies may use information about your visits to these sites and to other sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you on our sites or on other, third party sites. We also may give third party advertisers the ability to tailor their advertisements using demographic and preference information we provide to them in aggregate form. This information will not identify you individually.
These companies operate under their own privacy policies and Talenthoney LLC encourages you to be aware of the policies of such companies. TalentHoney does not have control over, or access to any information contained in the cookies that are set on your computer by such third party advertisers or users.
Talenthoney sites do not respond to web browser “do not track" signals. Thus, to help prevent and limit the automatic collection of information by any participating third party advertisers, including the collection of personally identifiable information, you may opt-out of such collection by clicking the Ad Choices icon located within the ad, by accessing the “about ads" opt-out site, or by accessing the NAI opt-out site. Please note that this opt-out is cookie-based. If you buy a new computer, change web browsers or delete this cookie, you will need to perform the opt-out task again.
Update Your Information and Profile
Users may access, update and amend personal information included in your online profile at any time by logging into your account and making changes. You may also delete your account, including your Personal Information and any resumes from our databases at any time by logging in to your account and making an account deletion request. Deleting your account will remove your Personal Information and resumes from our databases. Any questions should be directed to customer support at Talenthoney LLC.
If you have previously applied to a job, that particular employer will still be able to access your resume. You will not be able to delete data held by third parties, such as prospective employers, that already have accessed and downloaded your information or resume. We will retain anonymous Aggregate Data for uses described above. Please allow up to thirty days to process any account deletion request.
