Personal Data We Collect and Why We Collect It:
Comments: When visitors leave comments on our site, we collect the data provided in the comments form, the visitor’s IP address, and browser user agent string to help with spam detection. We may also use an anonymized string created from your email address (hash) to check if you have a Gravatar profile.
SMS and One-Way Video Communications
At Recruits Lab, we are committed to respecting your privacy while providing efficient and effective communication during the recruitment process. As part of our commitment to keeping you informed about your application status and potential opportunities, we may use Short Message Service (SMS) communications and, in some cases, one-way video invitations.
Application Updates: We may send SMS notifications to keep you informed about the status of your application, including when it is received, under review, or if there are any changes in its status.
Interview Invitations and Reminders: You may receive SMS invitations for interviews, along with reminders to ensure that you’re well-prepared and don’t miss important interview appointments.
One-Way Video Invitations:
In certain instances, we may use one-way video invitations as part of our recruitment process. This allows you to respond to specific interview questions via video, providing us with valuable insights into your qualifications and personality.
Please note that by participating in our recruitment process, you consent to receiving these communications. Standard SMS charges from your mobile carrier may apply. For one-way video invitations, you will receive clear instructions on how to complete the video response.
Media: If you upload images to our website, please ensure they do not contain embedded location data (EXIF GPS), as visitors can download and extract this information.
If you submit information through our contact forms, we collect the data you provide to us, including your name, email address, and any other relevant details necessary to respond to your inquiry.
Embedded Content from Other Websites:
We may use analytics tools to gather information about how users interact with our website to improve our services and user experience. These tools may collect anonymous data about your visit, such as your IP address, browser type, device information, and website navigation.
Who We Share Your Data With:
We do not sell, trade, or disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent, except as necessary for legal or security purposes or as required by applicable law.
How Long We Retain Your Data:
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. For registered users, we store personal information provided in their user profile. You have the right to view, edit, or delete your personal information at any time, except for your username, which cannot be changed.
Your Rights Over Your Data:
If you have an account on our site or have left comments, you can request a copy of the personal data we hold about you or request the erasure of your personal data. However, certain data may need to be retained for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Data Security and Protection:
We implement industry-standard security measures to protect your personal data from unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction.
