1. Personal Information Collected
We and our service providers collect a range of Personal Information. “Personal Information” is information that can be used to identify or contact an individual. When we combine Personal Information with other information (i.e., information that does not, on its own, identify you), we treat the combined information as Personal Information.
We may collect contact, demographic and background information. For example we may collect your name, address, email, phone number, other contact information, work history, educational history, and other information contained in your resume when you submit applications for job opportunities. If you are a job seeker who applies for a position through Creative Alignments, you may also be asked to provide information on your gender, race or other protected status where permitted by applicable law. Some employers are required by law to gather this information from job applicants for reporting and record-keeping requirements. You should understand that, if provided, this information will be used by employers only in accordance with applicable law and will not be used in making any negative employment decisions. Providing this information is strictly voluntary and you will not be subject to any adverse action or treatment if you choose not to provide this information.
We may collect your contact information when you contact us through the Platform or through email. We may also collect contact information when you sign up to receive alerts or updates from us.
We may also collect usage and device information when you visit our Platform. This may include information about the browser, operating system, and/or device identifier for the device you are using, your ISP and IP information, as well as the websites that you came from and the site you visit when you leave.
2. Method of Information Collection
We collect information in a variety of ways. We collect information directly from you; for instance when you register for an account, upload information through the Platform, or apply for a job opening. We also collect information if you contact us through the Platform.
We also collect information from you passively. Our Platform uses tracking tools like cookies and web beacons. We do this both on our Platform and in emails that we send to you. Through these tools we collect information about users over time when you use our Platform. This collection includes usage and browser information. We may also have third parties collect personal information this way. For more information about the trackers that we use please see Section 6 of this Policy.
3. Combining Information
We may combine Personal Information we obtain. For example we may combine information that we have collected online with information that we have collected offline. We may also combine information that we have collected across other third party sites or from other third parties with information we already have. Finally, we combine information across devices.
4. How We Use Personal Information
We use your Personal Information in a number of ways. For instance, we use your information in order to perform the services you have enrolled in and provide you the deliverables you request. We use Personal Information contained in, and associated with, resumes to make employment matches or job opening suggestions and to contact you regarding these suggestions.
We use information to respond to your requests or questions, including questions about our Platform, our services, and your relationship with us. This includes communicating with you to process your registration and participate in the Platform and to respond to your feedback. We also use information to communicate with you for transactional purposes, such as contacting you about this Policy or other similar communications.
We may also use your information to improve our Platform and services, including to customize your experience with us. We may also use your information for marketing purposes. For example, we may send you information about new features on the Platform, new services we offer, and special offers. When legally permitted, this may also include using your information to serve you ads and to tell you about products or offers available through third parties we think you might find interesting.
Additionally, we may user information for security purposes to protect our company, Platform, and customers. Finally we may use your information for other purposes, as permitted by law.
