This Privacy Notice describes Hirize’s policies and practices regarding collecting and using your personal information and sets forth your privacy rights.
Information We Collect
Personal Information. We collect personal information about you, like your name, employer, email address, and telephone number (“Personal Information”).
Candidate and Recruiter Personal Information
Candidate and Recruiter Personal Information. We collect information to provide services to two types of users: candidates and recruiting team members. If you are a candidate, we will collect your Personal Information from the integrated recruiting team’s Applicant Tracking System. If you are a recruiter, we will collect your Personal Information from the company employee directory/calendar (e.g., GSuite, Calendly).
Personal Information You Provide to Marketing and Sales
Personal Information You Provide to Marketing and Sales. From the Hirize website, including our blog site, we collect Personal Information when you ask us for sales and marketing information; sign up for a demo of our services; when you sign up to join our community when you sign up to download our eBook, and when you communicate with our customer support, participate in our community blog, marketing, and sales teams.
When and How We Share Information with Others
We need to share the candidate’s Personal Information with the company recruiting team (e.g., recruiters, coordinators, and interviewers to provide services). If you are a company recruiter, interviewer, or coordinator, we may also need to share your Personal Information with the candidate to set up an interview.
We collect your contact information to follow up with you on the Services and other services we offer that may be of interest to you.
We sometimes contract with other companies and individuals to perform functions or services on our behalf, such as software maintenance, data hosting, sending email messages, etc. We necessarily have to share your Personal Information with such third parties as may be required to perform their functions. We take steps to ensure that these parties take protecting your privacy as seriously as we do.
Right to Review and Rectify Your Personal Information
You can update most of your Personal Information by logging on to your account. However, if additional assistance is required to change or delete inaccuracies within your Personal Information or would like to know what information about you was collected, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Right to Remove or Withdraw Consent
You have the right to withdraw consent where such consent is required to share or use data and you may request that we delete your Personal Information. If you receive communications from us and no longer wish to receive them, please follow the removal instructions in the email or change your account settings. You can delete your Personal Information by logging into your account and deleting your account. However, since your Personal Information is required for us to provide the services to you, deleting it will also terminate your access to the services. Deleting your Personal Information does not mean that all of it will be removed. We take steps to delete Personal Information that is no longer necessary in terms of providing the services by deleting it within 90 days of terminating your account or if the account remains unused for more than one year. We may be required by law to retain it to exercise or defend legal claims or contractual obligations with our customers to retain some information in connection with our obligation to provide the Services. We may de-identify and anonymize some data for purposes of retaining it.
If you would like us to transmit your Personal Information to another company providing similar services and we are required to so by law, we will work with them to do so upon request and verification of such request with both the requestor and the company receiving the Personal Information.
Right to Redress

We will investigate and attempt to resolve complaints and disputes regarding the use and disclosure of Personal Data in accordance with the principles contained in this Policy within forty-five (45) days of receiving a complaint. For complaints that cannot be resolved between the complainant and us, we have agreed to participate in the dispute resolution procedures pursuant to the Privacy Shield Principles, which includes dispute resolution through means such as FTC enforcement, alternative dispute resolution process, and binding arbitration.
Please be advised that individuals may have the option to seek binding arbitration to resolve disputes regarding our privacy and data protection practices.

Transferring Information to the US - Standard Contractual Clauses
If you are providing your Personal Data to us directly to use our Services, we will transmit your data, including your Personal Data, to the United States in order to fulfill our contractual obligations to you.
Standard Contractual Clauses
If you are located in the European Economic Area, the UK, or Switzerland, we will protect your personal information when it is transferred outside of your jurisdiction by (a) processing it in a territory that provides an adequate level of protection based on its data protection laws; or (b) implementing appropriate safeguards to protect your personal information, such as relying on the European standard contractual clauses. We currently rely on the European standard contractual clauses (“SCCs”) for data transfers.
Security of Your Information
To help protect the privacy and personally identifiable information you transmit through use of our website, we
maintain physical, technical and administrative safeguards. We update and test our security technology on an ongoing
basis. We restrict access to your Personal Information to those employees who need to know that information to
provide benefits or services to you. In addition, we train our employees about the importance of confidentiality and
maintaining the privacy and security of your information.
The company takes reasonable steps to protect the Personal Data provided via the Services from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no Internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error-free. In particular, emails sent to or from the Services may not be secure.

US-EU Privacy Shield Certification Information
As of July 16, 2020, the European Court of Justice issued a judgment declaring Privacy Shield invalid. We now rely on other transfer mechanisms, such as the SCCs (standard contractual clauses) described above under “Transferring Information to the US”, for the cross-border transfer of data.
Prior to the invalidation of Privacy Shield, we relied on our Privacy Shield certification to transfer personal data from Europe to the US. As noted above, we currently rely on the SCCs (standard contractual clauses). We process this data in accordance with the Privacy Shield principles of Notice and Choice, Accountability for Onward Transfer, Security, Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation, Access, Recourse, Enforcement and Liability, as described below.
When we collect Personal Data directly from individuals in the EU, Switzerland and/or other applicable countries, we will inform them about the purposes for which we collect and use their Personal Data, the types of third parties (other than Agents), if any, to which we disclose that information, and the choices and means, if any, that we offer individuals for limiting the use and disclosure of their Personal Data. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when individuals are first asked to provide Personal Data to us, or as soon as practicable thereafter, and in any event before we use the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected. If we receive Personal Data from our affiliates or other entities in the EU, Switzerland and other countries with which we do business, we will use such information in accordance with the notices such entities provided and the choices made by the individuals to whom such Personal Data relates.
We will offer individuals the opportunity to choose (opt-out) whether their Personal Data is (a) to be disclosed to a third party (other than an Agent), or (b) to be used for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. For Sensitive Personal Data, we will give individuals the opportunity to affirmatively and explicitly (opt-in) consent to (a) the disclosure of the information to a third party, or (b) the use of the information for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. We will provide individuals with reasonable methods to exercise their choices. We may disclose personal information to third parties in the following instances:
Website Consultants and Service Providers. We may disclose personal information to third party consultants and service providers (such as providers of hosting services, support, maintenance and remedial and repair services) to the extent that they require access to our databases, or the information contained in our databases, to service us and our customers under the conditions set out in the Privacy Shield Principles.
Enforcement of Rights / Security. We reserve the right to release personal information (i) when we are under legal compulsion to do so (e.g. we have received a subpoena) or we otherwise believe that the law requires us to do so, (ii) when we believe it is necessary to protect and/or enforce the rights, property interests, or safety of us, our customers or others, or (iii) as we deem necessary to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, prevent fraud and/or enforce the Privacy Shield Principles.
Reorganization or Sale. In the event that our company is merged with or becomes part of another organization, or in the event that our company is sold or it sells all or substantially all of its assets or is otherwise reorganized, the information you provide may be one of the transferred assets to the acquiring or reorganized entity.
As Otherwise Allowed by Law. We may transfer personal information to third parties where we are expressly authorized by applicable law and the Privacy Shield Principles to do so. We also may be required to disclose an individual's personal information in response to a lawful request by public authorities, including meeting national security or law enforcement requirements.
We will offer individuals the opportunity to choose (opt-out) whether their Personal Data is (a) to be disclosed to a third party (other than an Agent), or (b) to be used for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual.
Accountability For Onward Transfers
We will obtain assurances from our Agents that they will safeguard Personal Data consistently with this policy. If we have knowledge that an Agent is using or disclosing Personal Data in a manner contrary to this policy, we will take reasonable steps to prevent or stop the use or disclosure.
We will take reasonable precautions to protect Personal Data in our possession from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.
Data Integrity & Purpose Limitation
We will use Personal Data only in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which it was collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Data is relevant to its intended use, accurate, complete, and current.
Upon request, we will grant individuals reasonable access to Personal Data that we hold about them, and we will take reasonable steps to permit individuals to correct, amend, or delete information that is demonstrated to be inaccurate or incomplete.
Resource, Enforcement And Liability
We will conduct compliance audits of our relevant privacy practices to verify adherence to this Policy. Any employee that we determine is in violation of this Policy will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment.
Changes and Updates to the Privacy Notice
As our company changes from time to time, this Privacy Notice is expected to change as well. We reserve the right to amend the Privacy Notice, for any reason, without notice to you, other than the posting of the amended Privacy Notice.
