These little pieces of data are called “cookies”. A Browser Cookie or HTTP cookie is a piece of data stored by a browser in either a computer’s memory or hard drive that tracks sessions with the JobSpring website.

IP Address

IP addresses are used to verify the access rights of licensed subscribers to JobSpring services that require license agreements. They also aid in the general administration of the website.

The use of IP addresses helps maintain security as well as policy adherence on behalf of our clients and their customers by verifying one’s authenticity before granting them permission or privileges they otherwise would not have been granted.

Third Parties

JobSpring is committed to providing its customers with the utmost privacy and security. This commitment extends not only to our own employees, but also third-party intermediaries who provide services on behalf of JobSpring for various business purposes such as credit card validation or data gathering. Third parties are allowed access only for these specific purposes that they have been contracted by JobSpring and this permission does not extend beyond what has already been agreed upon in order to maintain a secure environment from external threats.

Linked Websites

JobSpring cares about your privacy. We only use and disclose the information that we collect from you in accordance with this Privacy Statement. Jobspring has links to other websites, but it is not responsible for their content or practices as they are separate entities altogether. Before sharing any personal data on these sites, be sure to ask what kind of policy they have regarding user profiling and how often cookies will be saved on your computer browser’s hard drive during a session while using an online application form hosted by them (such as when filling out job applications).

We make sure that you’re not too young to use our Services, but if the case arises where someone is under 16 and they are still considered a minor in their country of residence, then it’s up to them as well as any guardians or parents with legal custody rights for said person. If your parent or guardian has authority over you (or anyone else such as an older sibling), he/she needs to agree on behalf of those younger than themselves before using this service.

If you think we might have collected or received information from a child under 16 without verification of parental consent, please contact us.

Transmission Errors and Criminal Acts

JobSpring is committed to protecting your personal information. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the security of any data transmitted over the Internet and do so at our own risk. This includes not only JobSpring’s online services but also any email sent by third parties who may be using a service that processes emails for us on behalf of an employer or candidate. In no event shall JoSpring have responsibility for disclosures due to errors in the transmission or unauthorized acts from these entities which are outside its control.

Security

You can be sure that we’ll do our best to keep your personal information safe, but no security system is perfect. We’ve taken steps like using firewalls and encryption where appropriate as well as keeping sensitive data on a closed network for employees only. New technologies are constantly being developed so you can rest assured that even if there’s nothing new right now, it will come in the future.

Your password is your responsibility. Never tell anyone what it is, and be careful when you’re using the site or service for personal reasons.

Please remember that while using our Site and Services, ultimately you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any passwords and/or other private information in your possession as well as ensuring nothing is shared without consent. Always be careful about what info gets given out so nobody has access to anything they shouldn’t have.

When you share personal information on the internet, there’s always a risk of leakage. To help protect yourself and others from malicious attacks or other unwanted consequences, it is imperative that you use caution when what kind of content to post online. You must make sure your safety comes first.

Your personal information should not be used for purposes unrelated to the service you requested unless consent has been granted by yourself or an authorized representative of yours. We will maintain all data in accordance with our policies on confidentiality and security as long as they are needed or required by applicable laws, regulations, orders from governments around the world.
