Information for California Consumers
The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provides certain rights and protections to California residents. This section describes (i) the categories and sources of data that We collect, sell, or share; (ii) the purposes for that; (iii) the types of third parties to whom We disclose that information; and (iv) how California residents can exercise their rights under the CCPA.
Categories of Data We Collect. We collect the following CCPA categories of data: (i) identifiers, such as a name, email address, telephone number, postal address, unique personal identifier, online identifier, IP address, account name, Social Security number, and/or driver’s license number; (ii) personal identifiers under Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.80(e), such as education, employment status, and certain financial information; (iii) protected classification characteristics under California law, such as age, marital status, and gender; (iv) commercial information, such as products or services obtained or considered; (v) internet activity, such as browsing history and search history information; (vi) geolocation data; (vii) professional or employment information, such as consumer-reported current or past job history; (viii) inferences drawn from some of the information above (e.g., email open rates and time).
We generally collect the above data as User Data, and for example, do not create user profiles to determine the gender, age, or employment status of consumers that are not provided to us by the applicable User. We receive each of those categories of data only as self-reported data from the consumer.
Itsmycareeralert.com: We collect user Data from consumers who land on or engage with our Sites or other Itsmycareeralert.com-owned-properties (e.g., in response to emails from Us or on Our behalf).
Partners and Third Parties: Consumers who visit websites owned by certain third parties, whether independent or affiliated with Us, may be redirected to our Sites. In some cases, we may gather data directly from those third-party websites, or those third parties may post data to our Sites or otherwise transfer data to us. This may occur via display ads, click listings, inquiry forms or telephonic transfers from these third parties. Our Advertising Partners may also provide us with data.
Service Providers: We may engage service providers to perform a variety of functions (e.g., documenting or verifying consumer consent, validating email addresses or phone numbers).
Authorization: We require all parties from whom we receive data to represent and warrant to us that they have appropriately obtained the data provided to us and have the authority to share it with us.
Purpose for Data Collection. As described in “Use of Personal Information” above, We primarily use the data We collect to connect consumers with third parties who can provide information about the products and services those consumers are seeking or may be interested in.
Categories of Third Parties with Whom We Disclose Personal Data. In addition to sharing for the primary use described herein, we may share your data with other Itsmycareeralert.com-affiliated businesses, service providers, and third party websites.
Categories of Data Sold. As described above, We may transfer User Data, including personal information, to Third-Party Employers, Listers and other third parties who can provide the consumer with information about the products and services they are seeking or in which they believe the consumer may be interested. We may receive a fee for the transfer of that data or when the consumer purchases a product or service.
CCPA Rights. The CCPA affords certain rights and protections to California residents including: (i) the right to request that we delete any “personal information” that we have collected from you (“Right to Delete”); (ii) the right to request that we disclose the categories and/or specific pieces of personal information collected and sold (“Right to Know”); and (iii) the right to direct us not to sell their “personal information” (“Right to Opt-Out”). “Personal information” is defined under the CCPA as “information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household.”
California residents who would like to submit a Request to Know, Delete, or Opt-Out should e-mail us at jobalerts@Itsmycareeralert.com or call us at (888) 906-6966. Upon submission, you will be asked to verify your email address. If we are able to verify your Request to Know or Delete, (e.g., that you are a California resident and that we have, or have sold, as the case may be, your “personal information”), we will respond within 45 days of your submission (or such additional time period as the law allows us).
