This Privacy Notice describes Hirize’s policies and practices regarding its collection and use of your personal information, and it 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. We collect information to provide services to two types of users: candidates and members of the recruiting team. 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. 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.

Website Information. As is true of most other websites, the Hirize website collects certain information automatically and stores it in log files. Only application IDs and pseudonymized (hashed) emails are stored to reference users. The information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, the region or general location where your computer or device is accessing the internet, browser type, operating system and other usage information about the use of the Hirize’s website, including a history of the pages you view. We use this information to help us design our site to better suit your needs. We may also use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Website, analyze trends, track visitor movements, and gather broad demographic information that assists us in identifying visitor preferences. The Hirize website also uses cookies and similar technology.

When and How We Share Information with Others

Services. We need to share the candidate’s Personal Information to 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 to the candidate to set up an interview.

Communication. 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.

Third Parties. 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.

Legal-Related Uses. Personal Information may be provided where we are required to do so by law, or if we believe in good faith that it is reasonably necessary (i) to respond to claims asserted against Hirize or to comply with the legal process (for example, discovery requests, subpoenas or warrants); (ii) to enforce or administer our policies and agreements with users; (iii) for fraud prevention, risk assessment, investigation, customer support, product development and debugging purposes; or (iv) to protect the rights, property or safety of Hirize, its users or members of the general public. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify users about law enforcement or court-ordered requests for data unless otherwise prohibited by law. However, nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that you may have to any third-party request to compel disclosure of your information.

Business Transfer. Hirize may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets, including your Personal Information, in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization, or sale of assets or in the event of bankruptcy. Under such circumstances, Hirize will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify its users if their personal information is to be disclosed or transferred and/or becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

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

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 relation to provide the services by deleting it within 90 days of your 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.

Data Portability. 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. If you are located in the European Economic Area (EEA) and you believe we have violated any data protection laws please contact us immediately

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 us and the complainant, 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. An individual who decides to invoke this arbitration option must take the following steps prior to initiating an arbitration claim: (1) raise the claimed violation directly with the organization and afford the organization an opportunity to resolve the issue within the timeframe set forth in Section III.11(d)(i) of the Principles (2) make use of the independent recourse mechanism under the Principles, which is at no cost to the individual; and (3) raise the issue through their Data Protection Authority to the Department of Commerce and afford the Department of Commerce an opportunity to use best efforts to resolve the issue within the timeframes set forth in the Letter from the International Trade Administration of the Department of Commerce, at no cost to the individual.

US-EU Privacy Shield Certification Information

We still adhere to the principles under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework. If there is any conflict between the policies in this privacy policy, the Privacy Shield principles and the SCCs (standard contractual clauses), the SCCs shall govern.
