What we collect
In various points on the HIRENETWORKS Sites, we collect “Personally Identifiable Information,” such as your name, e-mail address, or other information that can be used to contact you or identify you as an individual. We collect this kind of information to create an HIRENETWORKS Member Account when you register for membership and/or special services (e.g., a HIRENETWORKS Hot Jobs), sign up for e-mail newsletters. We may offer, at any time, additional features, services, and promotional opportunities that will require you to submit Personally Identifiable Information in order to participate.
We also collect “Anonymous Information” used for tracking and optimizing your user experience, such as your IP address, the type and version of browser you use, the pages on our Sites that you have visited, and the sponsor logos or advertisements that you have clicked on. (For example, the HIRENETWORKS Sites are optimized for the most recent browser capabilities. If we detect that you are using an obsolete browser, one that may not display our site features properly, we can alert you and recommend that you download the most recent browser version and provide a link for you to do so.) In some cases, (as when you are logged-in as a Site Member) your Anonymous Information may be linked to your Personally Identifiable Information as you navigate the site.
Sponsors or advertisers that may appear on the HIRENETWORKS Sites may also place cookies on your computer when you click on their button, logo or advertisement, for similar tracking reasons. The use of that information is subject to their own privacy policies. Please visit their sites to learn about their specific privacy practices.
However, in any case, advertisers or other third-party companies, individuals or organizations do not have access to the cookies that HIRENETWORKS collects.
How we use the information we collect
We use Personally Identifiable Information that you provide to communicate with you, to notify candidates about available jobs, to educate prospects on HIRENETWORKS services, to customize advertising and content available on the HIRENETWORKS Sites, to track Site usage and conduct research for internal purposes and, in general, to use such information to improve the HIRENETWORKS Sites and our services to you.
If you so choose, we will also use it to send you information about services that may be of interest to you.
We use information that is not personally identifiable to determine how people use our web site and its services. For example this data tells us information including how often users click on our advertisements, which files are downloaded most frequently, and which areas of our site are the most popular. Analyzing this data allows us to improve the offerings on and performance of our site(s). Using your IP address, we can also determine the general physical location of a user and may at times, at our sole discretion, use this information to better target advertising to users.
