Job Seeker Privacy Policy

(Revised and Effective – May 25, 2018)

Thank you for using Appcast to complete and submit your job application or express interest for certain job vacancies.

This Privacy Policy describes, among other things, (i) the types of information we collect when you click on an Appcast powered job ad at third party websites, when job applicants start and complete a job application on Appcast or third-party websites, and when certain points of the recruitment process (for example an interview or hire) have been completed (the “Service”); (ii) how we use the information we collect; and (iii) with whom and why we share it;. We also describe the measures we take to protect the security of the information and how to contact us about our privacy practices.

By accessing and continuing to use the Service after having an opportunity to review this Privacy Policy, you accept the Privacy Policy in its entirety and without modification and consent to our collection, use and sharing of the information as described herein. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Service.

What information do we collect? 

Information You Provide Us

When you complete a job application or submit your interest in certain job vacancies using a version of the Service where we host that submission process, you submit basic information, including: your name, email address, physical address, and phone number.  We may also ask for your responses to employment related questions, such as whether you know how to use certain software products, are available to work at night or have sufficient work-related permissions.  We also enable you to upload a copy of your resume or CV. We do not control what information is included in your resume or CV, but we encourage you to refrain from including sensitive personal information such as your social security number, identification numbers or financial account information.  From time to time, we may collect additional information related to your job application and prospective employment.

Information Collected Through Technology

We also collect certain information using automated means, such as cookies, web beacons and ID syncing. We use these technologies to collect information when you click on an Appcast powered job ad at third party websites, when job applicants start and complete a job application, and when certain points of the recruitment process (for example an interview or hire) have been completed. The information we collect in this manner includes anonymized IP address, browser type, device type, operating system, referring URLs, and dates and times of site visits. A cookie is a text file that websites send to a user’s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the device and browser or to store information or settings in a browser. A web beacon, also known as an Internet tag or pixel tag, links web pages to web servers and their cookies and may be used to transmit information collected through cookies back to a web server. ID syncing is a methodology for securely and privately making associations between two or more web servers about certain actions for attribution and ad optimization purposes.

We may also enable third parties to use cookies, web beacons, and ID syncing to collect information when you click on an Appcast powered job ad at third party websites, when job applicants start and complete a job application for a job vacancy, and when certain points of the recruitment process (for example an interview or hire) have been completed.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but browser settings can be changed to prevent these cookies from collecting information. Disabling cookies does not necessarily disable the use of pixel tags, web beacons and other technologies that collect information.

Unless you include it in your resume or CV, we do not collect the following information from job applicants and we urge you to exclude this information from your resume.

  • Social Security Number, Driver’s License Number or other personally identifying numbers
  • Payment card information or other financial information
