Privacy and Security Policy

Effective Date: 09/28/2014

Your privacy and security are critically important to us. This privacy policy describes how HiringThing collects and uses the personal information you provide on our web site and online service. At HiringThing we have a few fundamental principles:

Below is our privacy policy and security practices which incorporates these goals:

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, HiringThing collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. HiringThing’s purpose in collecting nonpersonally identifying information is to better understand how HiringThing’s visitors use its website. From time to time, HiringThing may release nonpersonally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

HiringThing also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. HiringThing does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personallyidentifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to HiringThing’s websites choose to interact with HiringThing in ways that require HiringThing to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that HiringThing gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we may ask visitors who sign up for the job listing service at HiringThing.com to provide a username and email address and other information. Those who engage in transactions with HiringThing – by purchasing access to premium services, for example – may be asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information (such as credit card number and billing zip code) required to process those transactions. In each case, HiringThing collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with HiringThing. HiringThing does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

HiringThing may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, HiringThing may monitor the most popular job listing sites on the HiringThing.com service, or republish job listings on HiringThing branded portals. HiringThing may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, HiringThing does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

HiringThing discloses potentially personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on HiringThing’s behalf or to provide services available at HiringThing’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. HiringThing will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, HiringThing discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when HiringThing believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of HiringThing, third parties or the public at large. If HiringThing is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Web site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personally identifiable information.

We may also provide your personal information to companies that provide services to help us with our business activities such as offering customer service. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us.

If you are a registered user of a HiringThing website and have supplied your email address, HiringThing may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with HiringThing and our products. Out of respect for your privacy, you may choose to stop receiving our newsletter or marketing emails by following the unsubscribe instructions included in these emails, or you can contact us at support@hiringthing.com. We expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), HiringThing takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Information Related to Data Collected on the Behalf of our Clients:

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. HiringThing uses cookies to help HiringThing identify and track visitors, their usage of HiringThing website, and their website access preferences. HiringThing visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using HiringThing's websites, with the drawback that certain features of HiringThing's websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

The use of cookies by our partners is not covered by our privacy policy. We do not have access or control over these cookies. Our partners use both session ID and persistent cookies to facilitate our advertising programs.

Our third party partners employ clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), images, and scripts that help them better manage content on our site. We do not tie the information gathered to our Customers’ or Users’ personally-identifying information.

Security Technology and Practices

HiringThing always transmits and stores personal information securely. This prevents potential hackers from "tapping" a data conversation. Your login credentials are encrypted with strong encryption using the Advanced Encryption Standard. The data security standards we have in place include auditing, logging, backups, and safe-guarding data. Our servers are housed in datacenters that are ISO27001 certified, the highest and most current standard for managing systems and data securely. All datacenter facilities are protected by professional security staff utilizing video surveillance, intrusion detection systems and other electronic means. Authorized staff must pass two-factor authentication a minimum of two times to access data center floors.

No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can contact us at support@hiringthing.com.
