What personal information of mine is collected through the website?
There are three classes of people who may access the Matchfield website and the information we collect about each one is different:
Visitors – Visitors to the Matchfield website may visit various pages on our site to learn more about the services we offer and explore other information we publish on our site. We do not collect any personal information from visitors to the site until they specifically decide to sign up as a user.
User (Recruiter) – As a recruiter you will need to supply your basic contact information when you sign up to learn more about or use the service (name, email address and company).
User (Candidate) – As a candidate you will need to supply your basic contact information when you sign up for the service (name and email address). If you subsequently either apply for a job and/or create a Matchfield profile you will be required to enter information to complete your application or profile. This information includes information typically found in a resume or LinkedIn profile, such as your experience and education. Candidates may also elect to receive notifications of relevant job postings and career opportunities. The scope of such notices may in some cases be specifically determined by candidates and may in other cases be determined based on the information provided in such candidates’ Matchfield profile.
As you explore the Matchfield website, we may also collect information via frequently used information-tracking tools, such as “cookies”. These cookies collect information such as your browser type, your Internet Protocol (IP) address and the actions you take on the website (i.e. pages views and links clicked).
How is this information used?
The information we gather from recruiters allows us to communicate with each recruiter individually and provide them with the transactional communications necessary for their account. We may additionally use this information to send marketing or other communications unless the recruiter has opted-out (see below).
The information we gather from candidates will be used to communicate with each candidate individually and provide them with the transactional communications necessary for their account. We may additionally use this information to send marketing or other communications unless the candidate has opted-out (see below).
Additionally, skills and experience information the candidate has included in his or her profile may be made available to to recruiter who posted relevant jobs in order to help that recruiter to determine whether they would like to request a direct connection. No contact information will be shared with recruiters unless the candidate has indicated their interest in the position and/or company.
Do you share my information with anyone?
Matchfield uses a third-party company to manage credit card processing. This company is not permitted to store, retain, or use billing information except for the sole purpose of credit card processing on Matchfield’s behalf and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information we provide to them.
We may also share non-personally identifying information in the aggregate with third parties, such as the media, industry observers, potential customers or partners. For example, we may disclose the number of candidates or recruiters that are using our site or services.
If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, a sale of all or a substantial portion of our assets, or other similar transaction, your information may be transferred as part of that transaction. We will notify you by email and/or a prominent notice on our website of any such transaction and the choices you may have regarding your information.
How do we obtain your consent?
How do I “opt-out” of marketing communications?
You are able to opt-out of marketing and non-transactional communications at any time. If you would like to cease receiving marketing and non-transactional communications, you can choose to be excluded from marketing and non-transactional communications at any time by de-selecting those options in your account. You can also request this via email.
