OUR COMMITMENT TO PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY

At Joveo®, 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 Joveo’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.

If You have questions or concerns regarding this statement, email us at privacy@joveo.com or privacy@fastapplyjobs.com. We are providing this privacy policy to inform You about how our technology platform processes information on behalf of online advertisers (direct employers), recruitment media agencies, website owners, job boards, data providers and other businesses that use our technology and services.

 

COMPLIANCE WITH PRIVACY SHIELD

Joveo complies with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the US Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from European Union member countries and Switzerland transferred to the United States pursuant to Privacy Shield.

I. WHAT IS JOVEO INC

Joveo Inc is an advertising technology platform with its registered office in San Francisco. Joveo runs a technology buying platform for digital media. The Joveo 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 Joveo 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. The Company is a registered company in Delaware with its registered office at 1047 Whipple Avenue, Suite B, Redwood City, CA 94062. For any queries regarding this Privacy Policy and the collection and use of data collected or processed under this Privacy Policy, the Company can be contacted by mail at 1047 Whipple Avenue, Suite B, Redwood City, CA 94062; by phone at +1 650-376-8100 or by email at privacy@joveo.com or privacy@fastapplyjobs.com

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.

 

II. INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT

For the purpose of providing You with Services, we collect information in two manners as given below:

(i) Information collected by Joveo

You may be required to provide personally identifiable information which is information that may be used to identify the user personally inter alia Your name, gender, residential address, age, mobile number, email address (including where in the case of a company, similar information as relevant to that company) (“PII”). We may also collect certain information through various social media platforms and other third-party integrations and such PII collected may be stored by Us. Users may also upload their resumes from any device using third party cloud providers/ applications. In an event where You do not upload a resume, We may auto-generate a resume based on the PII provided by You and upload the same for the purpose of Services.

(ii) Information automatically collected

In addition to the PII submitted by You to Us, to identify real time trends in the marketplace so they can reach targeted audiences more effectively, as opposed to collecting information on an individual’s internet usage, We may use other technologies (including cookies, please see the cookie policy below) to collect certain information (“Usage Information”) whenever you access the Site. This Usage Information may include the browser that You are using, the URL that referred You to the Site and information regarding the devices used by You to access the Site, among other information. Usage Information may be non-identifying or may be associated with You. Whenever we associate Usage Information or a device identifier with Your PII, we will treat it as PII and the conditions relating to PII under this Privacy Policy will be followed. Ad Tags Companies that work with us use our core algorithms and technology, which place ad tags on their websites. These ad tags are used to customize a user’s advertising experience, but they do not contain any PII. Rather, ad tags usually contain anonymous information about the web site, section of the site and size of the ad that the Services are optimizing.
