Data we collect
1. Data We Collect
1.1 Data You Provide To Us
You provide data to create an account with us.
To create an account you need to provide data including your name, email address and/or mobile number, and a password. If you register for a Premium Service, you will need to provide payment (e.g., credit card) and billing information.
You create your Qriteeq profile (a complete profile helps you get the most from our Services).
You have choices about the information on your profile, such as your education, work experience, skills, photo, city or area, and endorsements. Some Members may choose to complete a separate profile. You don’t have to provide additional information on your profile; however, profile information helps you to get more from our Services, including helping recruiters and business opportunities find you. It’s your choice whether to include sensitive information on your profile and to make that sensitive information public. Please do not post or add personal data to your profile that you would not want to be publicly available.
You give other data to us, such as by syncing your address book or calendar.
Posting and Uploading
We collect personal data from you when you provide, post, or upload it to our Services, such as when you fill out a form, (e.g., with demographic data or salary), respond to a survey, submit a resume or fill out a job application on our Services. If you opt to import your address book, we receive your contacts (including contact information your service provider(s) or app automatically added to your address book when you communicated with addresses or numbers not already in your list).
If you sync your contacts or calendars with our Services, we will collect your address book and calendar meeting information to keep growing your network by suggesting connections for you and others, and by providing information about events, e.g. times, places, attendees and contacts.
You don’t have to post or upload personal data; though if you don’t, it may limit your ability to grow and engage with your network over our Services.
1.2 Data From Others
Others may post or write about you.
Content and News
You and others may post content that includes information about you (as part of articles, posts, comments, videos) on our Services. We also may collect public information about you, such as professional-related news and accomplishments, and make it available as part of our Services, including, as permitted by your settings, in notifications to others of mentions in the news.
Others may sync their contacts or calendar with our Services
Contact and Calendar Information
We receive personal data (including contact information) about you when others import or sync their contacts or calendar with our Services, associate their contacts with Member profiles, scan and upload business cards, or send messages using our Services (including invites or connection requests). If you or others opt-in to sync email accounts
with our Services, we will also collect “email header” information that we can associate with Member profiles.
Customers and partners may provide data to us.
We receive personal data (e.g., your job title and work email address) about you when you use the services of our customers and partners, such as employers or prospective employers, and applicant tracking systems providing us with job application data.
Related Companies and Other Services
We receive data about you when you use some of the other services provided by us or our affiliates.
1.3 Service Use
We log your visits and use of our Services, including mobile apps.
We log usage data when you visit or otherwise use our Services, including our sites, app, and platform technology, such as when you view or click on content (e.g., learning video) or ads (on or off our sites and apps), perform a search, install or update one of our mobile apps, share articles or apply for jobs. We use log-ins, cookies, device information and internet protocol (“IP”) addresses to identify you and log your use.
1.4 Cookies and Similar Technologies
We collect data through cookies and similar technologies.
1.5 Your Device and Location
We receive data through cookies and similar technologies
When you visit or leave our Services (including some plugins and our cookies or similar technology on the sites of others), we receive the URL of both the site you came from and the one you go to, and the time of your visit. We also get information about your network and device (e.g., IP address, proxy server, operating system, web browser, and add-ons, device identifier and features, cookie IDs and/or ISP, or your mobile carrier). If you use our Services from a mobile device, that device will send us data about your location based on your phone settings. We will ask you to opt-in before we use GPS or other tools to identify your precise location.
If you communicate through our Services, we learn about that.
We collect information about you when you send, receive, or engage with messages in connection with our Services. For example, if you get a Qriteeq connection request, we track whether you have acted on it and will send you reminders. We also use automatic scanning technology on messages to support and protect our site. For example, we use this technology to suggest possible responses to messages and to manage or block content that violates our User Agreement or Professional Community Policies from our Services.
1.7 Workplace and School Provided Information
When your organization (e.g., employer or school) buys a premium Service for you to use, they give us data about you.
Others buying our Services for your use, such as your employer or your school, provide us with personal data about you and your eligibility to use the Services that they purchase for use by their workers, students, or alumni. For example, we will get contact information for “Company Page” administrators and for authorizing users of our Premium Services, such as our recruiting, sales, or learning products.
1.8 Sites and Services of Others
We get data when you visit sites that include our ads, cookies, or some of our plugins or when you log in to others’ services with your Qriteeq account.
We receive information about your visits and interaction with services provided by others when you log in with Qriteeq or visit others’ services that include some of our plugins (such as “Apply with Qriteeq”) or our ads, cookies, or similar technologies.
We are improving our Services, which means we get new data and create new ways to use data.
