This Privacy and Security Policy is provided for the benefit of customers and clients of Vouch4Vets. (“Vouch4Vets”) as well as other consumers and parties who seek information from or about Vouch4Vets and/or its website(s), particularly Vouch4Vets.com (“Website” or “Vouch4Vets”), and/or applications (“Apps”), communications and services, (collectively, “Vouch4Vets Services”).
1. INFORMATION COLLECTED AND USED BY THE Vouch4Vets ADVERTISING PLATFORM
Across its various policies, applications, and Website, Vouch4Vets strives to use the same definitions for particular terms. By doing so, Vouch4Vets seeks to make its policies and governing documents consistent and user-friendly. We do not use those terms because different people can have different interpretations of those terms, and we want to avoid the confusion that can create. We therefore simply do our best to describe the data points we use to deliver our service.
1.2 Our Commitment to Privacy
At Vouch4Vets, we respect the privacy and the confidentiality of our customers’ information, particularly our customers’ PII (also commonly referred to as personally identifiable information) (“PII”). We are committed to keeping confidential the PII you share with us. This Privacy and Security Policy explains how Vouch4Vets collects, uses, discloses and protects the information we obtain.
1.3 Applicability of Privacy and Security Policy
Our Privacy and Security Policy applies to all individuals and entities from whom or for the benefit of whom we receive PII, whether it be collected through our corporate owned websites; Apps; traditional mailing and/or faxing channels; telephone or electronic communications; from some other medium; and/or from our clients.
1.4 Website and Apps Not Directed to Minors
The Website is a professional website directed toward individual job seekers, individual consultants, HR departments, advertising sponsors and consultant groups seeking employment references as well as employers (either directly as customers of Vouch4Vets or through Staffing Customers that use Vouch4Vets Services) seeking to hire individual job seekers, individual consultants, or consultant groups or consultant groups for employment. As such, an individual must be aged eighteen (18) or over to create an account through the Website. As such, the Website is not directed toward children or minors. This also applies to all Vouch4Vets Apps.
2. PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED AND HOW IT IS USED
2.1 Personally Identifiable Information or PII is any information that would, by itself, identify you or tend to identify you as a particular individual or entity. This PII may include, but not be limited to, your name, your address, credit card number, bank account information, and/or personal identification number (such as a social security number or driver’s license number).
2.1.1 PII does not include any public information that is readily attainable through federal, state or local public record distribution channels.
2.1.2 PII does not include any information that, by itself, could not identify you as a particular individual or entity.
2.1.3 PII also does not include raw data that becomes aggregated for statistical purposes and cannot, thereafter, be identified with you as a unique individual or entity.
2.1.4 Vouch4Vets does consider your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address to be PII and will treat it as such.
2.2 Information Collected
2.2.1 Vouch4Vets collects information that is considered PII and other information that, by itself, would not be considered personally identifiable information (“Non-PII”).
2.2.2 When you create an account and register for any of our Vouch4Vets Services (whether through a Website, App, or other portal), we collect information submitted by you including, but not limited to, your username, your full name, company name (if applicable), email address, zip code, and primary industry. We use this information to identify our customers and send notifications related to the use of our Vouch4Vets Services. We reserve the right to request additional information from you.
2.2.3 The Service Information we collect or receive includes Unique identifiers (“UIDs”) that we, a Client or a Partner has associated with a User’s mobile device or other viewing device (such as a set top box or other similar identifier). This includes mobile advertising identifiers such as Apple IDFAs and Android Ad IDs. We or Partners may sometimes tie precise location information to these identifiers, to target ads based on where a User is located. Such as the below:
UIDs that we, a Client or a Partner has associated with a User’s browser, through browser “cookies” or similar locally stored objects or code. (i.e “Cookies, Pixel Tags and SDKs” to learn more about cookies and similar technologies [add link for info .)
Browser and device information, such as your operating system, browser used, or network provider, along with IP addresses, from which general geographic location may be inferred.
Information about websites visited, mobile applications used, and other content that you interact with, which may be tied to a UID and which generally includes the date and time of your visit to a website and your interactions with mobile apps whether you have responded to one of our clients’ ads, and the referring URL or mobile application name.
We may use the Service Information to create (or collect from Partners) interest-related data segments (“Data Segments”) associated with UIDs, cookies and/or mobile device advertising IDs. These Data Segments (whether created by us or others) may be based on your inferred interests (for instance, based on the ads you click on or sites and apps you view), or on inferred demographic categories (such age and gender). For instance, if you visit a lot of job websites, or install job apps, we may associate you (e.g., your devices or browsers) with a Data Segment about ‘Jobs.” Similarly, we sometimes use or work with Platforms that use UIDs or other information derived from information such as email hashes. This information may be associated with cookies and used to target ads to you that are based on “offline” interest-based segments, such as your interests, transactions or demographic information.
We may work with Partners that create Data Segments based on precise location data (such as that collected from mobile applications), and share those Data Segments with us.
We may combine any or all of the Service Information, for the purposes we describe in this Policy.
2.3 Collecting and Using Personally Identifiable Information
2.3.1 Vouch4Vets will explain how it intends to use PII either before it collects the information (such as in this Privacy and Security Policy) or contemporaneously with the solicitation of such information. Exceptions may exist where the intended use is obvious to a reasonable person.
2.3.2 Generally, Vouch4Vets collects personal identifiable information when an individual registers with or uses any of the Vouch4Vets Services. This information typically includes, at a minimum, a full name, username, company name (if applicable), physical address, email address, phone number, cell phone number, zip code, primary industry and any additional information provided by the account holder that could identify that account holder. For persons seeking employment, it should be recognized that a collection of information that would otherwise be considered non-PII could transform into PII (eg employment history, employment position at a company). Consequently, an individual account holder must be aware of making public through any of the Vouch4Vets Services information that could identify them where they seek to keep private their search for employment or advocate for another seeking employment. The same can be said of consultants, employers and other consumers in certain circumstances.
2.3.3 We will use the PII collected only for the purposes explained to you. Further, we limit the collection of PII to only that information which is necessary for the purposes explained to you.
2.3.4 Generally, we use the PII collected and/or received about you in connection with our Apps, Website, Vouch4Vets Services, and their various features. We also use information collected and/or received about you in connection with other users and advertisers that purchase ads through the Apps or on the Website.
For example, we may use the information we receive about you (a) as part of our efforts to keep Vouch4Vets safe and secure; (b) to provide you with location features and services, like telling you how far a job opening is from you or notifying you of jobs that pertain to your qualifications or keywords in your profile or if a job fair is nearby; (c) to measure or understand the effectiveness of ads you and others see; (d) to provide Vouch4Vets Services; (e) to make suggestions to you and other users on Vouch4Vets; and (e) provide support.
Granting us this permission not only allows us to provide Vouch4Vets as it exists today, but it also allows us to provide you with innovative features and services we develop in the future that use the PII we receive about you in new ways.
We may use your PII to communicate with you for the foregoing and other reasons by email, text message, phone call, or other electronic, written or oral communication method, unless you expressly indicate to Vouch4Vets not to use a particular method of communication.
While you are allowing us to use the PII we receive about you, you always own all of your information. Your trust is important to us, which is why we don't share PII we receive about you with others unless we have: (a) received your permission; (b) given you notice, such as by telling you about it in this policy; or (c) removed your name or any other PII from it.
Additionally, we may use aggregated information derived from PII to improve the Vouch4Vets Services and any related matters thereto.
2.3.5 Unless we are required to do so by law, we shall not obtain your consent before collecting PII about you from parties other than Vouch4Vets. Rather, Vouch4Vets shall presume that you have previously provided such consent to any such third party from whom Vouch4Vets obtains such information.
2.3.6 In the normal course of its business operations, Vouch4Vets restricts the use of your PII to Vouch4Vets' personnel and its Strategic Partners. However, by using Vouch4Vets Services, you may necessarily disclose PII to potential employers and Staffing Customers when they access your information, profiles, interviews, and other Content.
2.3.7 We shall not sell your PII in the normal course of business operations. Should all or any part of Vouch4Vets' business operations be sold, this paragraph shall not restrict the transfer of your PII as part of the Website sold to a third party.
2.3.8 We may also use the PII you provide in registering with and using Vouch4Vets to inform you by electronic mail, phone, text or other communication method of additional products and services about which you might be interested, which may include our periodic e-newsletters and other promotional communications from Vouch4Vets.
2.4 Disclosing Personal Information
126.96.36.199 Vouch4Vets may use PII in the normal course of providing the Vouch4Vets Services; to operate or improve the Apps, Website and/or Vouch4Vets Services; to outsource certain services to Strategic Partners; to complete a transaction that has been requested; to develop aggregate information; advertise, collect UID and/or as otherwise disclosed to you.
188.8.131.52 In particular, by the very nature of the Vouch4Vets Services, information submitted by our customers seeking employment or employees will be shared with other customers as applicable to the customers’ particular searches and use of Vouch4Vets Services.
184.108.40.206 Additionally, Staffing Customers that use Vouch4Vets Services may provide their employer customers, Third-Party Customers, information about Vouch4Vets customers in an effort to match individuals using Vouch4Vets Services to the needs of their employer Third-Party Customers. In some cases, Third-Party Customers may not be Vouch4Vets Customers. Although Vouch4Vets requires its Staffing Customers to ensure that their Third-Party Customers agree to terms similar to those of Vouch4Vets, Vouch4Vets has no control over the use of customer PII and non-PII by such Third-Party Customers where a Third-Party Customer is not a Vouch4Vets Customer.
220.127.116.11 In some cases, Vouch4Vets Customers and/or clients may be able to download your Profile Videos and other public information, and store them on, their computers and servers. Other Vouch4Vets Customers and/or clients may also be able to use shared links by which they provide related parties who might not also be Vouch4Vets Customers access to your content.
2.4.3 Strategic Partners. Vouch4Vets may employ, engage or retain certain trusted third parties (“Strategic Partners”) to perform functions and/or provide services on its behalf. Vouch4Vets will share PII with these Strategic Partners only to the extent necessary to perform the functions and/or provide the services for which they have been employed, engaged or retained. Vouch4Vets shall also secure contractual obligations from our Strategic Partners to maintain the privacy and security of the PII shared with them.
2.4.4 Business Transfers. Vouch4Vets reserves the right to sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets, including PII, in connection with a sale of assets; a merger, acquisition, or reorganization; or, filing for bankruptcy.
