The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) aims to provide California residents a host of new rights, among them the ability to prevent companies from “selling” their personal information.
“Selling” data and what it means
A common understanding of “selling” information is that it involves a company taking information it has learned about you and exchanging that information with an unrelated third party for money, who will then use that data for a new purpose that you did not intend. TheCareersNow.com never does this with your information.
We use our users’ information in order to help people get jobs. However, the CCPA has a much broader definition of “sell” than this. TheCareersNow.com strives to live up to the law, and your wishes, as it relates to this right.
What TheCareersNow.com does that may fall under this definition
This list is not meant to be exclusive but shows examples of what our products do. We say “may” fall under the definition of “selling” data because the CCPA is new and these issues are not yet resolved.
- We display your public resume to employers and recruiters.
- We recommend your public resume to employers and recruiters.
- We allow third-party cookies to help employers measure job listing performance and to optimize our online advertising.
- We share data with our affiliates as described in our Privacy Center.
What TheCareersNow.com does not do
- We don’t sell data to data brokers.
- We don’t exchange information about you with a third party for money.
Opting out of data “Transfer”
A request to not “transfer” your information to an employer prohibits us from providing our services to you. In order to opt out, you can request that we delete your personal information.
Ways to opt out
- Request to have your data deleted by emailing: email@example.com with the title Delete
- Call our telephone number for CCPA requests: 770-405-9577
By submitting this request, you are declaring that you are a California resident taking advantage of your rights under CCPA. Once your data is deleted, TheCareersNow.com will be unable to transfer it.
Frequently asked questions
Why am I being asked to delete information?
How we transfer information is integral to our services that help job seekers find great jobs, and employers find great candidates. At this time, we are not able to provide services without this information. However, you can still use TheCareersNow.com to find and apply to jobs to the extent that you wish.
Can I still use TheCareersNow.com after deleting my information?
If you submit the request to opt out and delete your information, you will still be able to access all of the services we offer on our site that do not require us to collect and transfer your email address.
Is it possible these practices will change?
TheCareersNow.com is carefully watching the State of California and its Attorney General for any new interpretations of the CCPA. If we feel it is proper to transfer the user data as our service are designed to do, we will revisit this issue. Our mission remains to help you get jobs in the manner that you wish.
