How we collect information
Information provided by your web browser
You never need to provide personally identifiable information to search for jobs on our Site. Logging into the Site, and providing personal information, is always optional for you (although logging in does give you access to more information and prospects).
However, like many other web sites, we may record information that your browser routinely shares, and we may automatically track certain information based upon your behavior on the Site (“Aggregate Information”). This information may include the URL that you have just come from (whether this URL is on our Site or not), the URL you go to next (whether this URL is on our Site or not), your computer’s browser information, mouse clicks, mouse movements, scrolling activity, text that is typed and your IP address. All Aggregate Information that is collected on the Site is collected via HubSpot web analytics services. HubSpot does not track your browsing habits across web sites that do not use HubSpot’s services.
Personal information that you provide
We may collect personal information that you choose to provide to us on a voluntary basis. When we ask for your personal information, it is so that we can provide a product or service to you and communicate with you about those products or services. For example, when you provide us with your name and resume, we may use that information to provide you with information about job postings or services that may be of interest to you. AgHires reserves the right to retain Users’ personally identifiable information, resumes, cover letters and any other documents indefinitely.
Posting a resume
Posting your resume on the Site puts you in front of Employers with open positions each day. When you post your resume, we automatically create 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. Posting your resume gives you the most visibility to the broadest Employer audience possible by making your resume searchable in our Candidate Database. Any registered Employer user who purchases access to the database can view your resume and contact details (to the extent you include them in your resume).
You may remove your resume from our searchable database at any time. However, employers, recruiters and others who have paid for access to that database, as well as parties who have otherwise gained access to the database may have retained a copy of your resume in their own files or databases. We cannot control the retention, use or privacy of resumes or profiles that have been downloaded by third parties. Accordingly, you should not put information you would not want made public in your resume.
How we use the information we collect
We will generally use the information that we collect to help us operate the Site, to provide requested products and services, to help us understand our users and their preferences, and to market products and services to our Site’s users that may be of interest to them. The following provides a more specific discussion of our uses and disclosures of the information that we collect. We will seek your consent before we use your personal information for any other purposes.
We may use your personal information to contact you and deliver information to you that, in some cases, is targeted to your interests (such as relevant job postings, services, advertisements, educational or other career development opportunities), or provide administrative notices or communications applicable to your use of the Site. By providing us with your personal information, you expressly agree to receive this information via email, facsimile or by any other mode of communication for which you have provided us contact information. If at any time you decide you no longer wish to receive these communications, you may opt out of any further receipt by following the opt out provisions provided in each such communication. AgHires may also aggregate certain non-personally identifiable information about its users (such as occupation, location, education and experience) and use such anonymous information to prepare reports that it provides to its Users.
You should be aware that when you choose to publicly display or distribute personal information (such as their email address, facsimile number or resume) on the Site, that information can be collected and used by others. This may result in unsolicited messages from third parties for which AgHires is not responsible.
You may have arrived at the Site by following a link from an AgHires’ affiliate’s web site. If so, please be aware that AgHires may share any information we collect on this Site with that affiliate.
AgHires may also disclose personal information when we determine that such disclosure is necessary to comply with the law, to cooperate with or seek assistance from law enforcement or to protect the interests or safety of AgHires or other users of the Site. In addition, personal information we have collected may be passed on to a third party in the event of a transfer of ownership or assets or a bankruptcy of AgHires. Such disclosures may be made with or without your consent, and with or without notice.
How we protect your personal information
AgHires will use commercially reasonable means to protect the integrity of the Site and to limit access to your personal information. However, we cannot provide absolute assurances against, and will not be liable for, breaches of confidentiality due to system failures or unauthorized access by third parties.
Your California Privacy Rights
California law permits its residents to request and receive information about a business’ disclosure of certain categories of personal information to other companies for their use in direct marketing. If you are a California resident and a user of any of the Sites, you can request a copy of this information from AgHires by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or a letter to iHire at 41 East All Saints Street, Frederick, Maryland 21701 Attention: Customer Service. Please include your name and email address in email requests, and your name and postal address in mail requests.

- Never provide credit card or bank numbers or engage in a monetary transaction of any sort with a prospective employer through the Site.
- Be cautious when dealing with contacts outside of your own country

Changes to this policy.
Our business and the laws that regulate us change from time to time, and we reserve the right to change this policy. If we do change this policy, we will post the revised version on the Site. If we propose to change our policy in a way that would permit us to make additional uses of the personal information that we had previously collected about you, we will obtain your affirmative, express consent before using your information in a materially different way.
