Your Privacy Rights
Scope of this Policy
This policy applies to information we collect or use on sites and applications owned or controlled by JobzMall or its affiliated companies (“JobzMall”). Affiliated companies are entities that control, are controlled by or are under common control with JobzMall.
We link to other websites over which we have no control. JobzMall is not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of other websites. You may wish to review the privacy policies of those sites so you can understand how they collect, use, and share your information.
What kinds of information is collected?
We require certain information to provide our services to you. For example, you must have an account in order to upload or share content on JobzMall. When you choose to share the information below with us, we collect and use it to operate our services. So in short, we collect information about you when you use our sites and applications. We collect information directly from you such as your contact information, resume, profile video, video cover letter, and profile. We receive and store this information when you provide it to us via our Services, such as via uploading it to our website otherwise providing it to us in any other way.
For example, depending on the services you use, we collect:
Additional Information we receive about you
We also collect information about you automatically. We automatically collect information about how you use our sites and mobile applications, the areas of our site that you visit, as well as information about your computer or mobile device including your IP address, device ID, physical location, browser and operating system type, and referring URLs. This information is necessary for providing personalized and location-based content as well as for analyzing web traffic, troubleshooting problems, preventing fraud, and improving our services. We may combine this information with information in your account to help prevent fraud.
We may collect information about you from publicly-available sources, including other websites. We may use this information to create a profile, even if you do not have an account with us, or append it to an existing profile.
We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from JobzMall if your device or software supports this type of functionality.
If you choose to sign in to any JobzMall Services with Facebook or similar sites, we import certain information from your account and we may make it part of your profile. Because the JobzMall Services are intended to allow you to share your information and to allow others to find you, we may make certain information about you publicly available by default. Such information might, for example, be accessed by everyone on the Internet, including Users without accounts, and may appear in public search engine search results. However, you can control the visibility of your information by managing your privacy settings. You can also restrict the information available to others by deleting information you do not want visible or by not providing it at all.
When you post information on another User’s profile or comment on another User’s post, the public availability of that information will be subject to the other User’s privacy settings.

How We Share Information
We provide you with a platform to broadcast information about yourself to maximize your career opportunities. The information we gather may be shared within the JobzMall group of companies on a worldwide basis.

Examples include hosting our web servers, including resume database storage, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. These companies will have access to your personal information as necessary to perform their functions, but they may not use that data for any other purpose. We will remain responsible for any information shared in this way.
We may also disclose information to third parties if you consent. For example: (a) if you make your resume searchable or if we collect information you’ve made available on a public website, then all parties with access to our resume or profile database products will have access to your information; (b) if you opt in to receive information about the opportunities, products, or services of third parties, we supply your contact information to those third parties so they may contact you; and/or (c) if you previously chose to receive newsletters, commercial e-mails or other communications from JobzMall or third parties, but subsequently change your mind, You may opt out in those emails or by editing your account profile.
By applying for a job, providing your contact information to show interest in a job, or by replying to a message from an employer, you consent to the disclosure of your information to that employer.
We also share aggregated information (including location data) about visitors and Users of the JobzMall Services with third parties to serve advertisements to you online. We may also aggregate data regarding job qualifications, schooling, age, experience level or other information relevant to the job search. This aggregated data does not identify users individually, and may be made available to employers or fellow job seekers or community members. If we create a co-branded site with another company, information will be retained by both companies and subject to the privacy policies of both companies which will be published on the co-branded sites.
We may disclose to third parties information that we have collected from other websites.
We disclose information if legally required to do so, or at our discretion pursuant to a request from a governmental entity or if we believe in good faith – after considering Your privacy interests and other factors – that such action is necessary to: (a) meet legal requirements or comply with legal process; (b) protect our rights or property or our affiliated companies; (c) prevent a crime or protect national security; or (d) protect the personal safety of users or the public.
We may disclose and transfer information to a third party who acquires any or all of JobzMall business units, whether such acquisition is by way of merger, consolidation or purchase of all or a substantial portion of our assets. In addition, in the event JobzMall becomes the subject of an insolvency proceeding, such information will be disposed of in a transaction approved by the court. You will be notified of the sale of all or a substantial portion of our business to a third party by email or through a prominent notice posted on the site.
An Important Note About Your Profile

Visible and limited profiles can be viewed by anyone with access to our profile database. We cannot control the retention, use or privacy of resumes that have been viewed or downloaded by others.
Private profiles will not be visible in our profile database, but the information we acquire about you from a public website may be visible. You may still use your private profile to apply online for a job. If you do, your profile will be transferred to the relevant employer, who may retain a copy of your profile or distribute it to third parties.

Accordingly, you should not put sensitive information, personality profiles, or other information you would not want made public, in your profile.
