Information We Process on Behalf of our Customers
In the course of acting as a service provider and providing the Websites, we may collect and process personal information from and on behalf of our Partners as outlined below. We primarily process personal information about our Partners’ job applicants where our Partners host or attend a hiring event. We require our Partners to ensure that they have the authority to provide personal information to us in accordance with applicable privacy laws.
Event Hiring Profile: For job candidates that register for a specific interview or event (e.g., job fairs, or interviews), you may be asked to provide certain information to prospective employers. The specific information will depend on potential employers or event host, but may include your resume/CV, contact information, references, and other information that you would generally provide when applying for a job. We use this information to facilitate the interview process, and to provide prospective employers with information about job candidates. An employer may also collect additional information (e.g. how you heard about the event, years of experience with a skill, etc), to better understand the job applicant pool participating in the interview process.
Attending Hiring Events: When you attend a hiring event, you will have the opportunity to engage with other users attending the event. How we collect and use your personal information at a hiring event depends on what part of the event you are attending.
o Public Areas (Main Stage, Group Sessions): When you attend a hiring event on the Website, you may join areas where there may be multiple employer users and candidate users interacting at the same time. You may be able to present using audio and video to prospective job candidates attending the event. Whether you are an employer representative or a job candidate, you may use the chat feature to communicate with employer registrants and other job candidates in these areas. Any text that you enter into the chat is visible to anyone registered to attend the event. We may record video and audio of employer presentations, and the content of any text entered into the chat. We use this information to allow our customer employers to communicate with job candidates, and to provide employers with information about prospective job candidates.
o Video Interviews: When you attend a hiring event using either a candidate account or an employer account, you will have the opportunity to participate in video interviews. If you appear on video, any other user attending the meeting will be able to see and hear you. We may record video and audio of an interview, and the content of any text entered into the chat. We use this information to allow job applicants to interview for, and connect with, prospective employers, and to allow our employer customers to replay interviews.
SHARING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
As a matter of practice, Hellohire does not sell or disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent, except as set out in this policy or as required or permitted by law. For clarity, in California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) terms, we do not “sell” the personal information we handle on behalf of our customers.
Service Providers: Your personal information will be transferred (or otherwise made available) to certain third parties that provide services on our behalf. We use service providers to provide services such as to host the Website, process payments, store data and provide back-up services, and for audio and video integrations. Our service providers are only provided with the information they need to perform their designated functions and are not authorized to use or disclose personal information for any other purposes. Our service providers may be located in the U.S., Canada or other foreign jurisdictions. Our list of trusted service providers (also known as sub-processors) is available upon written request, please contact us at email@example.com.
Legal and Compliance: Hellohire and our Canadian and US and other service providers may provide your personal information in response to a search warrant to other legally valid inquiry or order, or to another organization for the purposes of investigating a breach of an agreement or contravention of law or detecting, suppressing or preventing fraud, or as otherwise may be required or permitted by applicable Canadian, US or other law or legal process, which may include lawful access by US or foreign courts, law enforcement, or other government authorities. Your personal information may also be disclosed where necessary for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims and to investigate or prevent actual or suspected loss or harm to persons or property. Where a disclosure of our customers’ information is required by applicable law, we promptly notify our customer prior to complying with such requirements (to the extent we are not prohibited from doing so) and fully cooperate with our customer’s instructions with respect to our response.
Sale of Business: We may transfer any information we have about you as an asset in connection with a proposed or completed merger, acquisition, or sale (including transfers made as part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings) involving all or part of Hellohire or as part of a corporate reorganization or other change in corporate control.
INFORMATION ABOUT OUR WEBSITE
Visiting our Website: In general, you can visit our Website without telling us who you are or submitting any personal information. However, we collect the IP (Internet protocol) addresses of all visitors to our Website and other related information such as page requests, browser type, operating system and average time spent on our Website. We use this information to help us understand our Website activity and to monitor and improve our Website.
Cookies: Our Website uses a technology called “cookies”. A cookie is a tiny element of data that our Website sends to a user’s browser, which may then be stored on the user’s hard drive so that we can recognize the user’s computer or device when they return. You may set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to not accept certain cookies. However, if you decide not to accept cookies from our Website, you may not be able to take advantage of all of the relevant features. We also use a third-party analytics service offered on our Website to evaluate your use of the Website, generate reports on your activities and use of the Website, and improve your experience.
We may work with third-parties such as ad networks and other advertising companies that use their own tracking technologies (including cookies and pixel tags) on our Website in order to provide you with tailored advertisements across the Internet. These companies may collect information about your activity on our Website and third-party websites (such as web pages you visit and your interaction with our advertising and other communications) and use this information to make predictions about your preferences, develop personalized content, and deliver ads that are more relevant to you on third party websites. This information may also be used to evaluate the effectiveness of our online advertising campaigns.
Opting-out of Interest-Based Advertising: For more information about interest-based advertising and to understand your options, including how you can opt-out of receiving behavioral ads from third-party advertising companies participating in the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada, please visit the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada website at http://youradchoices.ca/choices.
Please note that even if you opt-out of interest-based advertising by a third party, these tracking technologies may still collect data for other purposes including analytics and you will still see ads from us, but the ads will not be targeted based on behavioral information about you and may therefore be less relevant to you and your interests.
To successfully opt out, you must have cookies enabled in your web browser (see your browser’s instructions for information on cookies and how to enable them). Your opt-out only applies to the web browser you use so you must opt-out of each web browser on each computer you use. Once you opt out, if you delete your browser’s saved cookies, you will need to opt-out again.

ACCESS TO INFORMATION
