Introduction

We take your personal data very seriously 

Welcome to the HR Tech Privacy Center – a platform detailing how multiple online job search and recruitment sites and brands share data and protect privacy. These brands include Indeed and Glassdoor, and are all part of Recruit Holdings.

We developed this site to help you learn more about our Privacy Values, how your data is shared between these affiliated companies and why it’s important for us to share it.  

Sharing data between sites allows us to:

  • Help connect job seekers with more job listings and employers
  • Improve and customize services for our users
  • Enhance security for our users

This data sharing benefits both job seekers and employers. You can learn more below or find answers to some frequently asked questions.

The information provided here doesn’t change how each of the sites collects or shares your personal data. That’s governed by the individual privacy and cookie policies on each site. If you have specific questions about a particular site, we encourage you to visit that site’s help center for further information.

The benefits of data sharing

Why do you need my data anyway?

Data sharing not only provides a range of benefits to job seekers and employers, it also enables us to improve our services to you. 

Data sharing means more employers, more job listings and more job seekers

Data sharing between the affiliated sites allows job seekers to access a broader database of job listings and employers. It also helps employers access more job seekers. For example, one site may be able to recommend jobs or employers on another affiliated site. It can also help applications, resumes or job listings work across the affiliated sites.

The sites can also share employer data, such as account information and behavioral information, to provide a better experience to those employers.

Data sharing improves our services to you

Data sharing allows our sites to provide personalized and improved content, performance, features and services. 

For example, our sites may use and share your previous search or browsing history (e.g. the jobs you click on) and your resume or profile information to determine relevant search results and job alerts. Data sharing may also help provide career insights such as company reviews, job listing salary data, interview tips and more. 

This sharing also helps improve data analysis, testing, research and service improvement across our sites.

Data sharing facilitates better security

Sharing data allows our sites to better protect our users. In particular it allows affiliated sites to improve user security and internal operations. It also facilitates troubleshooting and detection and prevention of fraud and spam.

Site activity recording

What we do with the data

We process your activity on the affiliated sites to help us better understand how you use them. This helps us improve and inform the products and services we offer. All of which allows us to help you find jobs. 

It’s important to note that our sites can’t work as intended without this data collection and sharing. This includes processing, collecting, analyzing, storing and sharing your data amongst each other or with third party service providers, including in real-time. Data collected can include any and all interactions and communications you have on our sites. It may also include without limitation the areas of the affiliated sites you visit and where you click, scroll, hover, mouseover or otherwise interact with our sites. It may also include when and for how long each activity occurs. 

Because it’s critical to how our sites operate, if you do not want your actions to be collected, processed, analyzed or shared in this way, you will need to cease using our sites.
