Thank you for using TALENT.COM INC as your job search engine!
When this policy mentions “TALENT.COM,” “we,” “us,” or “our,” it refers to TALENT.COM INC., the Canadian-based company in charge of collecting, handling, and processing your information. TALENT.COM INC is a job aggregator that indexes all jobs available online so you can find every job listed online on one single website.
1. INFORMATION WE COLLECT
In order for us to better serve our visitors and users (“you”), there are two categories of information we collect:
1.1 Long-term Data
“Long-term Data” refers to any data we collect to offer you a better job seeking and application experience. “Long-term Data” includes the following:
Account Creation. When you apply for a job through TALENT.COM's platform, we save your first name, last name, email address, phone number, and last uploaded resume (i.e. most recently uploaded attachment) and associate it with an Account, so you can easily apply for subsequent jobs without having to re-enter your application information every time.
Should you choose not to upload your resume, you might be asked to give more information on your work experience, education, certifications/licenses and skills, among others. In most cases, providing this information is not required for you to apply, which is why you are free to choose whether to give it or not. If you do, this information will also be associated with your Account, so you can easily apply for subsequent jobs without having to re-enter your application information every time. If you choose not to share this information, you can, in most cases, proceed to applying for the job. However, there are some cases where work experience, education, certifications/licenses and skills, among others, may be required by the employer, in order for them to make hiring decisions. In those specific cases, choosing not to give this information will prevent you from applying for the job.
We also collect your job search history (jobs viewed, jobs added to favorites, jobs applied for, keywords and location typed in the search bar) to give you better and more personalised results so that you are able to find jobs you are interested in faster and easier.
In order to keep you logged into your account as you navigate our website, we also collect and store cookies that are purged the second you log out.
Email Alerts. When you subscribe to TALENT.COM INC’s Email Alerts service (also commonly referred to as “Job Alerts”), we collect your email address, as well as the keyword(s) and location typed in the search bar or displayed on the job posting from which you subscribed to email alerts. That way, we can email you personalised and relevant job listings related to your job search.
Please note that you may manage your alerts or unsubscribe at any given time by clicking on the “Unsubscribe from Job Alert” link at the bottom of any email alert. You can then click on the “Delete” button next to the alert you wish to remove.
Traffic Quality. We collect IP addresses and information on the device, operating system, and browser used to access our jobs. This information is stored separately from all other information and is anonymized in a way that it cannot be tied to any other information that can be used to identify you as an individual. This helps us guarantee that our traffic is genuine and acts as proof that real people click on our jobs—not robots.
Salary. When applying for jobs, you may be asked about your current and desired salary. This information will never get automatically transmitted to employers, unless it is part of the “Short-Term Data” required by employers. Providing this information is not mandatory, but if you choose to do so, our Hiring Specialists will be able to access this data and can use it to help you negotiate your salary with employers interested in your profile. However, you should know that Hiring Specialists usually get in touch with you prior to discussing your profile with the employer.
The main purpose of asking for Salary information is to better tailor the content we are showing and sending you. You can read more about Content Customisation in section 2 (“HOW WE USE INFORMATION”).
1.2 Short-term Data
"Short-Term Data" refers to any information that is requested by an employer in order for a job seeker to successfully apply for the employer's job, aside from the information already mentioned above in the "Long-Term Data" section.
Some of the most common examples of “Short-term Data” are level of proficiency with certain programs; level of fluency with certain spoken or written languages; other skill assessments; or external links, such as portfolio links.
When you apply for jobs and submit your application to employers directly through TALENT.COM INC, we act as an intermediary between you and the employer. We collect this data temporarily in order to automatically transmit it to the employer on your behalf.
1.2.1 Important Notice
Once an application is transmitted to an employer, TALENT.COM INC cannot reverse the process or retrieve any data that was already transmitted to the employer’s end.
When you apply to a job using TALENT.COM INC, you understand and agree that your application information is sent to the employer and that once your application is transmitted, the process cannot be undone since a copy of your information will already have reached the employer’s end.
2. HOW WE USE INFORMATION
Content Customisation. We use the information we collect to provide a personalized, simplified job seeking and application experience, whether it is showing you job listings tailored to your needs, sending you customized email alerts, or offering you a one-stop platform where you can apply to all the jobs you are interested in with your application data being automatically and transparently transmitted to the employers.
More Job Opportunities. We use your application information to provide you with job opportunities you may have missed or that have not been shared with the rest of our users. Our Hiring Specialists are always looking for outstanding candidates, so, if your profile matches an employer’s requirement, we will reach out to let you know. Please, know that prior to contacting you, our Hiring Specialists may review your application information – including your resume if you chose to attach one – in order for them to determine whether you would be a good fit for the role.
Services Improvement. We use an anonymized version of your IP address to see how different users interact with our services so that we can better improve them.
2.1 How long we keep your information
“Long-term Data” (see 1.1) is stored in our system for as long as we need it to successfully provide our services—or until you wish to purge it (see 5.3). For example, in the case of Email Alerts, we need to store your email address so that we are able to send you the alerts you have subscribed to. You can access, manage, and purge “Long-term Data” by logging into your TALENT.COM account (see 6.1).
“Short-term Data” (see 1.2) is stored in our system as long as employers need access to it. We keep it in case the transmission of your information to the employer has failed and we need to retransmit it to them. You may also purge your “Short-term Data” at any time by logging into your TALENT.COM account (see 6.1).
Please, know that as long as you have a TALENT.COM account, we assume you keep applying for jobs or will do so in the foreseeable future. Therefore, we keep your information available to keep you from re-entering it manually the next time you choose to apply.
2.2 How your information is stored
Information we collect is transferred to, processed, and stored in Canada. The protection of your privacy and personal information is important to us. TALENT.COM INC is committed to handling and processing your data in the most secure way and places great importance on the way your information is being handled and processed. We have a team assigned on all data security matters and are continuously working on new features to keep your information secure.
3. HOW WE SHARE INFORMATION
We only disclose the information we collect from you as described below:
We may share your anonymized IP address to our partners or clients, but we never pair it with “Long-term Data” or “Short-term Data”. The reason why we share this information with our partners is for traffic quality assurance. This information acts as proof that real people click on their content—not robots.
When applying for a job, we ask you for your consent before we can share your application information with the employer who posted the job you are applying for. If you proceed to apply to the job, you understand that your application information will be submitted to the employer and that, as detailed in 1.2.1, this process cannot be reversed.
