Appcast, Inc. (“Appcast” or “we” or “us”) is a job advertising technology service. We also own and operate several websites (e.g., appcast.io).
We gather various types of information, including information that identifies or may identify you as an individual (“Personal Information”) as explained in more detail below.
We receive and store Personal Information you submit directly to us. For example, when you register as a user of the Service, you submit basic Personal Information such as your name, email address, phone number, and physical address. We also collect and maintain your user ID and password, which you create and provide to us.
To provide the Service, we collect certain information from job applicants using automated means, such as cookies and web beacons, when they click on an Appcast-sponsored job ad at third party websites and when job applicants start and complete a job application at your website or a website operated by your applicant tracking system. The information we collect in this manner includes IP address, browser type, device type, operating system, referring URLs, and dates and times of site visits. We anonymize IP addresses by hashing or truncating them. A cookie is a text file that websites send to a user’s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the device and browser or to store information or settings in a browser. A web beacon, also known as an Internet tag or pixel tag, links web pages to web servers and their cookies and may be used to transmit information collected through cookies back to a web server.
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but browser settings can be changed to prevent these cookies from collecting information. Disabling cookies does not necessarily disable the use of pixel tags, web beacons and other technologies that collect information.
Our websites collect certain information related to your device automatically. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, the general location where the device is located, and browser information.
We may receive information about you from various third parties, such as lead generation companies and public data sources.
We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13. If you are under 13, please do not register for Appcasts’s Service or send any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13, we will delete that information as soon as possible. If you believe that a child under 13 may have provided us personal information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We use the information you provide to us and the information we collect for the following purposes:
You acknowledge and agree that we own all of the information we collect via cookies and web beacons regarding job ad views, job application starts and job application completions. We will not sell or rent your information to data brokers or any other third parties. Further, in no event will we publicly disclose any performance-related data specific to you.
We may share your information with advertising and marketing partners for purposes of publishing your job ads and with other third parties who perform services on our behalf, for example, website analytics companies (e.g., Google Analytics) and information technology service providers.
We will access, review, preserve, and disclose the information we collect if we reasonably believe we are required to do so by law, regulation, court order or other government authority; to enforce or apply our agreements; or to protect the rights, safety, and property of Appcast, Inc., its employees, or the public. We may also cooperate with law enforcement agencies in any official investigation and we may disclose information to the relevant agency in doing so.
Information security is important to us and we use appropriate technical, organizational, and administrative security measures to protect any information we hold. However, no website or Internet transmission is completely secure, and we cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur. The security of your information depends on your protection of your account user IDs and passwords. Please properly select and protect your password, limit access to your computer or device, and do not disclose your user IDs or passwords to unauthorized people.
You are responsible for providing privacy notices to your job applicants, including notice that we are collecting certain information as described herein and any other notices required by applicable law.
If you would like to access, review, update, rectify, and delete any Personal Information we hold about you, or exercise any other data subject right available to you under applicable law, you can either fill out this webform directly or call us at +1-800-570-5430, extension 4. Our privacy team will examine your request and respond to you as quickly as possible.
Please note that we may still use any aggregated and deidentified Personal Information that does not identify any individual, and may also retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, complete transactions for which the Personal Information was collected, and enforce our agreements.
