This Privacy Notice will let you know how we collect, use, process, maintain, and share your personal information on our website and digital properties, as well as your choices regarding the use, access, and correction of your personal information.  What personal information we collect may vary based on your interaction with us and requests for our services.

Geographic limitations

 

Jobsgoat LLC is headquartered and operates in the United States, and therefore we may process, store, and transfer personal information in a country which may be outside of your own, if you do not live in the United States.  By providing us with your personal information you acknowledge such transfer of information out of your jurisdiction.  If you do not wish for certain personal information to be so transferred, please do not provide your personal information to us and take steps to prevent the automated collection of your personal information through your browser’s settings.  Please note that without certain information, we may be unable to provide our Services to you.  If you have any questions, please contact us.

 

What categories of personal information do we gather about you?

 

We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal information about you, including: 

  • personally identifiable information such as your name, postal address, e-mail address, and other contact information; 
  • user profile information; 
  • transactional/Services data; 
  • financial data; 
  • technical and usage data such as information about your internet connection, the equipment you use to access our website, and usage details:
  • location data; 
  • marketing and communications information and preferences; 
  • demographic information; and 
  • educational, training, and employment information.

 

We also collect, use and share anonymous data, which is not covered under this Privacy Notice. Anonymous data may be derived from your personal information where your identity has been irretrievably removed. For example, we may aggregate your usage data to calculate the percentage of visitors accessing a specific website feature. Or, we may aggregate information about our visitors to provide materials and external reports for our advertisers and marketing partners, investors, auditors, and the like. However, if we combine or connect anonymous data with your personal information so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal information, which will be used in accordance with this Privacy Notice.

 

How do we collect or receive your personal information?

 

There are different ways that we may collect information about you, but generally we will collect your personal information directly or indirectly from you, from third parties, or from public resources.  For example:

 

  • Directly from You.  We may collect your personal information directly or indirectly from you, such as information you provide when you set up a user account, fill out a form on our Site, upload a resume, send us correspondence, sign up to receive our emails or join our mailing lists, post comments, reviews or other public content, participate in a giveaway or event, complete surveys, pay for or otherwise use our Services. We may also, depending upon your device and browser settings, collect information about your device or other online identifiers, via cookies and tracking mechanisms. 

 

  • Information from Third Parties.  We may receive your personal information from third parties. As is the case with most organizations, Jobsgoat LLC uses subcontractors and vendors to assist with our technology, security, payment processing, order-fulfillment, delivery, advertising/marketing, analytics, mobile app-development and deployment, and other business services who, in the course of acting on our behalf, may provide us with your personal information. Another third party source of your personal information may be through social media, which depends upon your privacy settings with that third-party platform (as explained further, below).

 

  • Public resources.  We may also collect personal information from public resources, which is usually used to supplement personal information we have received from you or our Third Party service providers.

 

  • Social media platforms. We may also collect your personal information when you connect with us through social media (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram).  For example, this could be by you using social media features like the Facebook “Like” button or tweeting Jobsgoat.com content using the “Tweet” button, or if you interact with us on our social media channels (for example, if you “follow” us or post on our channel). These features are operated by third parties and we do not have control over third party privacy practices, which we encourage you to read.  If you connect using your social media account, depending on your privacy settings with that social media platform, we may receive personal information you provided to that social media platform.  Subject to the third party social media platform’s terms of use and Privacy Notice, we may use this personal information to communicate with you (for example, to respond to your messages or posts to us), as well as to help us provide, enhance, and personalize our Services.  If you do not want to provide us with this information, you need to adjust the privacy settings on your social media account, and/or otherwise follow the third party’s instructions.
