Hired’s core mission is to match candidates with a job they love and to connect the world’s most innovative companies with top tech talent. It is, therefore, an essential part of Our Service that information You submit through the Service be made available to other Users. Your information may also be shared with other Hired Services of which You are not a User, as well as potentially transmitted to third-parties as set forth herein. Hired is committed to protecting the privacy of its Users and the information that You share in connection with Your use of Hired’s Services. This Privacy Notice describes how We collect, use, share, transfer, and disclose Your Personal Information. This Privacy Notice applies to information We collect when You access and/or use Our Services. Hired may provide additional notices through Our Services in addition to these practices or provide You additional choices about how Hired may process Your Personal Information. If You have any questions about this Privacy Notice, please contact Us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Changes to this Privacy Notice. We may change the provisions of this Privacy Notice at any time and will indicate when changes have been made by revising the date at the top of this Privacy Notice. We encourage You to review the Privacy Notice whenever You access Services to make sure that You understand Our information collection, use, and disclosure practices. When We make material changes to this Privacy Notice, We will provide You with prominent notice as appropriate under the circumstances, e.g., by displaying a prominent notice within the Service or by sending You an email. We may notify You in advance.
Personal Information may also contain third-party personally identifiable information You provide to Hired through Your use of the Service(s), of which You remain liable for at all times. Aggregated, non-personally identifying information is not Your Personal Information. We may use aggregated, non-personally identifying information to operate, analyze, improve, and optimize Services.
We use Your Personal Information in connection with providing You with the Services and product features. Here are some examples of how We use Your information:
We may also store information locally on Your device, for instance in Your local cache. Hired reserves the right to review any information to help resolve problems with Our Services or to ensure compliance with Our Terms of Service.
We may share Your information as follows:
We may send You emails, including marketing, promotional, and third-party related communications. You may opt out of these emails at any time by unsubscribing or selecting this option through Our Services. Note that You may need to opt out from each Hired Service individually. Despite Your election, We may still be required to send You Service-related communications, including any updates to Our Terms of Service or this Privacy Notice.
As an essential element of the Service, most of the information You provide to Us when You register or update Your profile is displayed on Your profile and intended to be shared with other Users. Your photos, posts, and other Content You post through Our Services are also meant for public consumption. We may display this Content through Our Services. Once displayed on publicly viewable web pages, that information can be collected and used by others. We cannot control who reads Your postings or what other Users may do with the information that You voluntarily post, so it is very important that You do not put any sensitive, confidential, or any other information You do not wish to be shared in Your posts. Once You have posted information publicly, while You will still be able to edit and delete it on the Service, You will not be able to edit or delete such information cached, collected, and stored elsewhere by others.
Services may include third-party behavioral advertising. This means that a third party may use technology to collect information about Your use of Our Services so that other parties can provide advertising about products and services tailored to Your interests. If You do not want third parties to collect and use Your information in this manner You may opt-out at the Digital Advertising Alliance in the US, the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada in Canada, or European Digital Advertising Alliance in Europe.
You may upload or import Your contacts to the Hired Service. When You upload these contacts, You agree You have the rights to upload such contacts and share these contacts with Hired. We rely upon You to obtain whatever consents from the relevant third-parties that may be required by law to allow Us to access and upload the third-parties’ names, e-mail addresses, and other contact information. You or such a third-party may contact Us at email@example.com to request the removal of this information from Our database.
We may publish any feedback We receive from You. We may identify You by Your first and last name and may also indicate Your home city. We may post any feedback on the Service from time to time. If You make any comments on a blog or forum associated with Hired, You should be aware that You have no reasonable expectation of privacy and that any Personal Information You submit there can be read, collected, or used by other Users of these forums, and could be used to send You unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information You choose to submit in these blogs and forums.
You may change any of Your Personal Information in Your account by editing Your profile within Your account. Generally, Hired will retain User Personal Information for as long as Your account is active or as needed to provide You Services. We may retain certain User Personal Information indefinitely, unless You delete it or request its deletion. For example, We don’t automatically delete inactive User accounts, so unless You choose to delete Your account, We will retain Your account information indefinitely or as long as allowable by law, whichever comes first.
If You would like to cancel Your account or delete Your User Personal Information, You may do so in Your User account, but We may retain and use Your information as necessary to comply with Our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce Our agreements before any such deletion. After an account has been deleted, certain data, such as messages to other Users and comments, will remain. However, We will delete or deidentify Your Personal Information, including Your User name and email address, by associating them with an anonymous User. When We delete any information, it will be deleted from the active database, but may remain in Our archives.

The Services may contain links to third-party websites and services. When You click on a link to any other website, location, or service You will leave Our Services and go to another site or service and another entity may collect data from You. We do not control and are not responsible for such third-party websites or services. Third-Party Services are for Your convenience only, and We do not recommend, screen, review, or have any control over the actions taken by these third-parties. Your use of these services is solely Your choice and decision. Please review every third-party website or service You visit or use, including those that You interact with through Our Services.
Certain Hired Services may allow You to provide third-party personally identifiable information to Hired, of which You will remain liable for at all times. You represent and warrant You have all rights, permissions, and consents to provide such information to Hired, and that maintenance of that information, including removal or request for deletion, will at all times be Your responsibility. You will indemnify, defend, and hold Hired harmless from any third-party actions against Hired with respect to such third-party personally identifiable information You provide to Hired pursuant to Our Terms of Service.
Hired is committed to protecting the security of Your Personal Information. We use a variety of industry-standard security technologies and procedures to help protect Your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. We also require You to enter a password to access Your account information. Please do not disclose Your account password to unauthorized people. You are solely responsible for all actions or disclosures of Your information or any access to Your account. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is one hundred percent (100%) secure, however. Therefore, while Hired uses reasonable efforts to safeguard Your Personal Information, Hired cannot guarantee its absolute security.
We do not intentionally gather Personal Information from individuals who are under the age of thirteen (13). If a child under thirteen (13) submits Personal Information to Hired and We learn that the Personal Information is the information of a child under thirteen (13), We will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible. If You believe that We might have any Personal Information from a child under thirteen (13), please contact Us at email@example.com.
We may update this Privacy Notice from time to time and for any reason. We will endeavor to provide You advanced notice of such updates, but You are ultimately responsible for consulting this Privacy Notice regularly for any changes. Continued use of Our Services shall indicate Your acknowledgement of such changes and agreement to be bound by the terms of such changes. If You do not agree, You should immediately discontinue Your use of the Services.
