OUR COMMITMENT TO PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY
At GetHired, we believe that the Internet is a better place when privacy of the users is respected by websites and businesses. At the same time, we also know that the web is not a ‘one size fits all’ ecosystem and that websites do require collecting some personal information from users so as to create a unique and personalized experience. These principles are close to our heart which is why we promise that if we collect any information from You, it’s because we want to provide You with a superior experience using GetHired’s Site and Services. As explained in detail further below, we recognize that just because You share information with us doesn’t mean You want to share it with the rest of the world. That’s why it is our priority to protect any information You give us. It’s our goal to make Your experience with the Site and Services both rewarding and safe.
COMPLIANCE WITH PRIVACY SHIELD
The Federal Trade Commission has jurisdiction over GetHired’s compliance with the Privacy Shield. GetHired is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the FTC (Federal Trade Commission).
Pursuant to the Privacy Shield Frameworks, EU and Swiss individuals have the right to obtain our confirmation of whether we maintain personal information relating to You in the United States. Upon request, we will provide You with access to the personal information that we hold about You. You may also correct, amend, or delete the personal information we hold about You. An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data transferred to the United States under Privacy Shield, should direct their query to firstname.lastname@example.org. If requested to remove data, we will respond within a reasonable timeframe.
We will provide an individual opt-out choice, or opt-in for sensitive data, before we share Your data with third parties other than our agents, or before we use it for a purpose other than which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized. To request to limit the use and disclosure of Your personal information, please submit a written request to email@example.com.
In certain situations, we may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
GetHired’s accountability for personal data that it receives in the United States under the Privacy Shield and subsequently transfers to a third party is described in the Privacy Shield Principles. In particular, GetHired remains responsible and liable under the Privacy Shield Principles if third-party agents that it engages to process personal data on its behalf do so in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, unless GetHired proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, GetHired commits to resolve complaints about Your privacy and our collection or use of Your personal information transferred to the United States pursuant to Privacy Shield. European Union and Swiss individuals with Privacy Shield inquiries or complaints should first contact GetHired at: firstname.lastname@example.org
GetHired has further committed to refer unresolved privacy complaints under the Privacy Shield Principles to an independent dispute resolution mechanism, the BBB EU PRIVACY SHIELD. If You do not receive timely acknowledgment of Your complaint, or if Your complaint is not satisfactorily addressed, please visit https://bbbprograms.org/programs/all-programs/bbb-eu-privacy-shield-consumers/ProcessForConsumers for more information and to file a complaint. This service is provided free of charge to You.
If Your Privacy Shield complaint cannot be resolved through the above channels, under certain conditions, You may invoke binding arbitration for some residual claims not resolved by other redress mechanisms. See Privacy Shield Annex 1 at https://www.privacyshield.gov/article?id=ANNEX-I-introduction.
GetHired acknowledges and respects the judgment of the Court of Justice of the European Union as on July 16, 2020 as well as the opinion of the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) of Switzerland as on September 08, 2020 regarding the inadequacy of the protection provided under the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework for data transfers from EU and Switzerland to the United States. In furtherance of the same, GetHired agrees and accepts to undertake the following measures including without limitation as additional safeguards for protection of the data :
• maintain a current certification and privacy notice,
• promptly respond to complaints and maintain a free and independent dispute resolution mechanism for EU consumers, and
• continue to handle all data already received under Privacy Shield in accordance with the Privacy Shield Principles, including data transferred to third parties.
I. WHAT IS GETHIRED
GetHired is an advertising technology platform with its registered office in San Francisco. GetHired runs a technology buying platform for digital media. The GetHired technology allows our customers to buy ad space on websites, mobile apps, video players, and other devices and allows for the use of proprietary and third-party data in the purchase of that ad space. When ad space is bought or sold, our technology fulfills the transaction by delivering the ad to Internet users (job seekers) who visit that site, app, or device. Generally, an Internet user’s device (computer, mobile device or otherwise) comes into contact with GetHired technology when a user views a job ad delivered by our technology or clicks or taps on the ad to visit the advertiser’s website or app.
In accordance with applicable laws and regulations, including the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (EC Regulation 2016/679), the Company controls, collects, owns and directs the use of the PII and Usage Information and, in this regard, the Company is the data controller.

Privacy practices for our technology Advertising supports free content and digital user experiences that we all like. Our goal is therefore to make advertising more effective by helping to display job ads that may be of interest to You. We believe that relevant job ads are more valuable to job seekers than less relevant ads. More relevance also helps the services that depend on advertising because advertisers pay more for effective job ads which in turn leads to higher quality and richer job seeker experiences.
