Information We Collect From You
When you voluntarily fill out surveys, company ratings, registration forms, or provide us with other Personal Information at the Site, we collect and process that information in accordance with this Policy. From time to time we change our offerings and features. As a result, the options you have to provide us with Personal Information may also change. Here are examples of situations where you have the opportunity to actively provide us with Personal Information:
- Creating an account
- Getting matched to companies and job opportunities
- Submitting a company review
- Completing a form related to one of our products or services
- Contacting our support team
The Personal Information we collect for you may vary depending on how you interact with the Site. For example, to create an account we may ask only for an email address and password. In other circumstances, we may ask you to provide other information. For example, for our company ratings you may be required to provide information such as job title and career level, and you may be invited to provide optional information such as demographic information. We also collect and store certain information associated with actions you take. For example, when you search for jobs, we store the titles and other information about the jobs you click on. We also store other information about your behavior on our Site.
To create an account, you have the option of using a social networking site (each a “Social Site”) such as LinkedIn, Facebook, or others. We receive and collect any information you authorize the Social Site to share with us, and it becomes Black Owned and Hiring account information for your use on the Site. This information is Personal Information that is processed and handled in accordance with this Policy. You may disconnect your Social Site account from your Black Owned and Hiring account by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you create an account on Black Owned and Hiring, you may create a profile (“User Profile”) that will include other Personal Information you provide. We may create your User Profile with information extracted through account information we have received from a Social Site. You have the ability to edit any Personal Information in your User Profile, deactivate your User Profile in your account, or request that your User Profile be deleted by sending an email to email@example.com.
When you create a User Profile, you have the option of requesting that your saved User Profile be viewed by prospective employers. Your User Profile does not include or link to information you submit to the Site anonymously (for example, company ratings, and questions and answers you submit to our community that you submit anonymously).
Users of the Site may provide us with email addresses of people in their network for us to send an email inviting those people to visit the Site and use one of our products or services. Employers who have free employer accounts and may provide us with work email addresses of their employees for use to send an email asking those employees to rate the employer on the Site.
Any credit card information you enter on the Site in connection with a purchase of one of our products or services is sent directly from your browser to the third-party service provider we use to manage credit card processing and we do not store it on our servers. The service provider is not permitted to use the information you provide except for the sole purposes of credit card processing on our behalf.
