Last modified: November 19, 2018

CareerCircle is a company that provides online career education services to professionals who need to increase their skills or upskill to be ready for their next career opportunity. A description of our services can be found on the CareerCircle website, https://careercircle.com.

Our Privacy Notice applies to all of the services offered by CareerCircle, including services offered on other sites (such as integration partners), but excludes services that have separate privacy policies that do not incorporate this Privacy Notice.

CareerCircle believes that privacy and security are important for everyone. Our Privacy Policy will help you understand how we collect and use data to provide our services.

We take the privacy and security of your information very seriously. As you use our services, we want you to be clear how we're using information and how you can interact with us about any privacy questions or concerns.

Our Privacy Notice explains:

  • How we protect information that you transfer or input into CareerCirce.
  • What information we collect and why we collect it.
  • How we use the information we collect.
  • The choices we offer, including how to access and update information.
  • How we protect the confidentiality, integrity and accessibility of your information.

Information you upload or input

Your information is yours. Many of our Services allow you to upload or otherwise input information into your private CareerCircle database. Your information is protected by multiple layers of security, which are designed to prevent unauthorized access.

Information we collect

We collect several different types of information for various purposes to provide and improve our Service to you.

We collect both anonymous and non-anonymous information to provide better services to all of our users.

We collect information in three ways:

  • Information you give us. For example, many of our services require you to provide certain information to us to sign up for education opportunities that we offer. When you do, we'll ask for personal information, like your name, email address, telephone number or credit card.
  • Information we get from your use of our services. We may collect information about the services that you use and how you use them, like when you use our social integration services or you view, rate, or contact candidates through our service. This information includes:
    • Device information - We may collect device-specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information including phone number). CareerCircle may associate your device identifiers or phone number with your CareerCircle Account.
    • Log information - When you use our services or view content provided by CareerCircle we might automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. We may collect and process information about your actual location, like GPS signals sent by a mobile device. When you use a location-enabled CareerCircle service, we may also use various technologies to determine location, such as sensor data from your device that may, for example, provide information on nearby Wi-Fi access points and cell towers.
    • We may also collect:
      • Details of how you used our service, such as your search queries and usage data patterns. Usage Data is data collected automatically either generated by the use of the CareerCircle service or from the CareerCircle service infrastructure itself (for example, the duration of a page visit).
      • Internet protocol address.
      • Device event information such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL.
      • Cookies are small pieces of data stored on your device (computer or mobile device). We may collect Cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your CareerCircle account. You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, it's important to remember that many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. For example, we may not remember your preferences.

Unique application numbers
  • Certain services include a unique application number. This number and information about your installation (for example, the operating system type and application version number) may be sent to CareerCircle when you install or uninstall that service or when that service periodically contacts our servers, such as for automatic updates.

Local storage
  • We may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.

Cookies and anonymous identifiers
  • We use various technologies to collect and store information when you visit a CareerCircle service, and this may include sending one or more cookies or anonymous identifiers to your device. We also use cookies and anonymous identifiers when you interact with services we offer to our partners, such as CareerCircle features that may appear on other sites.

We do not support Do Not Track ("DNT"). Do Not Track is a preference you can set in your web browser to inform websites that you do not want to be tracked. You can enable or disable Do Not Track by visiting the Preferences or Settings page of your web browser.
