1. Information Collected
In addition, as part of the standard operation of the Site, PII may automatically collect and analyze information from your computer or mobile device, including, but not limited to, your browser type, operating system, IP address and the domain name from which you accessed the Site, and if you are accessing our Site with your mobile device, the type of mobile device. In addition, we may automatically record and analyze actions taken on the Site including, but not limited to, date and times of use, clicks, page views, the amount of time you spend on each page, and search queries. PII reserves the right to match your IP address (or any other information) with other information about you in any way permitted by applicable law. PII will store this information on its equipment or the equipment of third parties that PII has a relationship with for that purpose. If you create an PII account, information may be collected under your account email address.
If you access or use the Site on your mobile telephone or other mobile device, including tablets, we collect mobile device identifiers, including MAC Address, and IP Address. PII may create and assign to your device an identifier that is similar to an account number. We may collect the name you have associated with your device, device type, telephone number, country, and any other information you choose to provide, such as user name, geo-location or e-mail address. We may also access your contacts to enable you to invite friends to join you in the Site.
2. Uses and Disclosures of Information
Any information shared by you with PII may be shared with or transferred to any PII affiliated entity (including those located outside the European Union), no matter where located, for the purpose of providing you services and improving the Site. By using the Site, you consent to this transfer and acknowledge that the services provided to you and the functionality of the Site could not be provided without such a transfer. If you do not wish your information to be transferred in this way you should not use this Site.
3. Contact and Resume Information
When you give PII contact information (such as your name and email address) and demographic information, you agree that PII may utilize this information as set forth herein. You agree that PII may, as part of its services to you, communicate with you, or initiate communication with you on behalf of a third party, through your PII account or through other means such as email, telephone (including mobile phone), or postal mail, including through the use of contact information that you may provide to PII or that PII may otherwise obtain from third-party resources. If and to the extent permitted by applicable law, PII or its designated third-party partners may also use your contact information to (i) send you job alerts; (ii) create an account; and (iii) send you information about PII, including promotional materials. PII may use demographic and/or profile data to tailor your experience on the Site, show you content that PII thinks you may be interested in, and display content according to your preferences. Your information, including Personal Information, gets placed on the Site when you upload or edit a resume. To the extent you upload a resume or edit it, and subject to your Privacy Settings, you are making the resume, your name and other Personal Information that you place on your resume available to third parties who may be interested in you as an employee (and who may forward your resume and Personal Information to other third parties), to search engines, or to the general public by posting your Personal Information on the internet. You acknowledge that PII may determine whether the words of your resume or any other individuals’ resume match the words of certain job descriptions, and vice-versa, in order to improve the Site or any other PII product or service (including by displaying or otherwise making available potentially relevant job descriptions and resumes to job seekers and employers). If you post a public resume, this may be crawled by, and displayed through, search engines when someone searches for your name. This means that third parties can view the Personal Information contained in your resume and you may receive unsolicited contact from parties unaffiliated with PII and for whom PII has no responsibility. If you do not want your Personal Information posted on the Site, you should not upload it. You may opt-out of this feature on a going-forward basis by editing your Privacy Settings; however, PII does not warrant how often third-party search engines will update their caches, which may continue to contain your resume information. PII reserves the right to charge third parties a fee for accessing your information, including Personal Information, as part of PII’s services. At your direction, PII may also send your resume to third parties if you choose to apply for a job listing.
4. Additional Uses and Disclosures of Non-Personal Information
PII seeks to use reasonable security measures to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the Personal Information under PII’s control. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. In addition, please note that emails, messages sent via your web browser, and other similar means of communication with other users, are not encrypted. We strongly advise you not to communicate any confidential or sensitive information through these means. Therefore, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its security. Please also be aware that we may use third-party cloud service providers that provide hosting, data storage and other services pursuant to standard terms and conditions that may be non-negotiable; these service providers have informed us or the general public that they apply security measures they consider adequate for the protection of information within their system, or they have a general reputation for applying such measures. However, we will not be liable (to the fullest extent permitted by law) for any damages that may result from the misuse of any information, including Personal Information, by these companies.

9. EEA Data
If you are located in the European Economic Area or Switzerland, please refer to the section titled “EEA Data” in the Terms of Service below.
10. Accessing Personal Data for EU Residents
Residents of the European Economic Area and Switzerland have a right of access to their data. If you wish to access such data, please send a certified letter to the above address with a copy of your passport or national identity card (for identity verification purposes) and the same will be provided to you. There may be a charge for such a request (which will not be higher than applicable law permits). European Economic Area and Switzerland residents also have a right, if their personal data is inaccurate, of rectification, erasure or blocking of such inaccurate personal data. You may edit your resume free of charge (if there is an inaccuracy or otherwise), by following procedures set forth on the Site. If your personal data is inaccurate, you may alternatively request PII to rectify, erase or block the data by sending a certified letter, with a copy of your passport or national identity card (for identity verification purposes), to the above address with the exact nature of the requested action.
11. Do Not Track Requests
We do not respond to the browser “Do Not Track” (DNT) signal if enabled by the user in their web browser. When we set or read cookies on non-PII sites that have integrated our job search and display features, we do so, for example, to provide a personalized job search experience to users on those sites. We do not share any information about your use of PII with those third parties. When third parties that we have integrated into PII sites set or read their own third-party cookies, they may or may not respond to the DNT signal.
12. Opting Out
If you no longer want to receive promotional materials from us based upon your Personal Information, going forward, you may opt-out of receiving such marketing-related messages by sending an email to opt-out @ indeed.com (remove spaces when sending email). Please note that we may still send other messages to you, such as administrative messages. We will try to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable.
