Career Ladders is committed to protecting the privacy of your personal data collected at this website. This statement summarizes the policies of this website regarding the collection, use, and transfer of your personal data, and the security measures Career Ladders employs to protect such data.
The Information Collected by us
Career Ladders reserves its right to share your personal information with its licensees and affiliates.
Career Ladders is an online recruitment service and collects a variety of personal data necessary to provide these services. By choosing to enter your personal information on this site you indicate your willingness to disclose this information to Career Ladders and employers registered with it, and to be considered, when appropriate, for one of Career Ladder’s vacancies. If you do not wish to disclose this information, Career Ladders will be unable to provide you the services offered by this site, since employment, educational, and other personal information is necessary in order to assess your employment opportunities.
How We Use and Disclose Personally-Identifying Information
In order to present you as a candidate on a vacancy, your personal information may be provided to Career Ladders’s clients (potential employers), affiliates, and licensees. If you do not wish to participate in this service and benefit from the career opportunities that Career Ladders provides, please do not enter your personal information into the website.
Information obtained by the site is used only for the intended purposes stated. It is Career Ladders’s policy not to sell or share your personal information for related or unrelated purposes to non-licensee third parties, unless otherwise stated at the time of collection. If at any time we decide to use personal data in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will endeavour to notify you and give you a choice as to whether or not we use your information in this different manner. No notification and choice will be sought if Career Ladders is compelled or required by applicable law, statute, regulation, ordinance, or court order to disclose personal data.
How We Use and Disclose Non-Personally Identifying Information
Your personal information may also be used anonymously and in the aggregate in order to put together industry, marketing and employment statistics. Used in this matter, your personal information becomes non-identifying. Career Ladders also monitors IP addresses for security purposes, trend analysis, site administration, user movement tracking, and broad demographic information gathering for aggregate use. The IP address of the computer you use to access Career Ladders (the ‘internet street address’ of your computer) is not linked to any personal information you provide on the site.
Information Security and Integrity
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain accuracy of data and ensure proper use of information, Career Ladders has put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial security procedures to safeguard all information collected online.
We will not process your personal information in a way that is incompatible with what is outlined in the Privacy Statement, and will use our best efforts to ensure that data is accurate, complete, current and reliable for its intended use. We also will use our best efforts to protect your information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
Cookies are packets of information that are stored on your computer’s hard drive. At Career Ladders, cookies allow us to keep track of the areas of the site you visit and thereby offer you easy access to the information you find most relevant. They also allow us to greet you by name when you visit and to remember that you have already registered. No secure information or information about your personal identity is ever contained within our cookies. Your web browser is most likely set to automatically accept cookies, but you can consult your browser help file if you wish to change these settings. If you elect not to receive cookies, registered users will not be able to view a personalized home page, and will view the default homepage instead.
Resume Privacy Options
When you post your resume, Career Ladders automatically creates a registration for you using the email address and password that you supply. When you return to the site in the future you will use that same email address and password to access and edit your existing resume.
Career Ladders recognizes that job seekers have different levels of comfort in posting their resume on the internet. To accommodate the needs of all users, Career Ladders offers three levels of privacy from which to choose from.
Standard Posting gives job seekers the most visibility to the broadest employer and/or recruiter audience possible, making the resume including full name and contact details searchable by all third-parties who have subscribed to Career Ladders’s database search service.
Private Posting will allow the resume to be searched, without the name or contact information being displayed. In this case, interested parties can only contact the candidate through Career Ladders.
Hidden Posting allows the user to post his/her resume on Career Ladders without permitting it to be searched by third parties. In this case, the resume can only be viewed by a third-party if the candidate applies for a vacancy advertised by that third-party.
In addition, Career Ladders distinguishes between ‘Employers’ and ‘Recruitment Agencies’ and allows users to specify their desired privacy and visibility options vis-à-vis each group separately.
