Security and Investigations
We use data for security, fraud prevention and investigations. We use your data (including your communications) for security purposes or to prevent or investigate possible fraud or other violations of our user agreement and/or attempts to harm our members, visitors, or others.
Our services help you connect with others for work and business opportunities.
Our services allow you to stay in touch and up to date with colleagues, partners, clients, and other professional contacts. To do so, you can “connect” with the professionals who you choose, and who also wish to “connect” with you. Subject to your and their settings, when you connect with other members, you will be able to search each other’s connections in order to exchange professional opportunities. We use data about you (such as your profile, profiles you have viewed or data provided through address book uploads or partner integrations) to help others find your profile, suggest connections for you and others (e.g. members who share your contacts or job experiences) and enable you to invite others to become a member and connect with you. It is your choice whether to invite someone to our services, send a connection request, or allow another member to become your connection. When you invite someone to connect with you, your invitation will include your network and basic profile information (e.g., name, profile photo, job title and region). We will send invitation reminders to the person you invited. You can choose whether to share your own list of connections with your connections. Visitors have choices about how we use their data.
Our services allow you to collaborate with colleagues, search for potential clients, and others to do business with. Our services allow you to communicate with Professionals and Associates and schedule and prepare meetings with them.
You can contact us or use other options to resolve any complaints. If you have questions or complaints regarding this policy, please first contact PairHiring online. You can also reach us by physical mail. If contacting us does not resolve your complaint, you have more options. Residents in the designated countries and other regions may also have the right to contact our Data Protection Officer here. If this does not resolve your complaint, residents in the designated countries and other regions may have more options under their laws.
We may need to share your data when we believe it is required by law or to help protect the rights and safety of you, us or others. It is possible that we will need to disclose information about you when required by law, subpoena, or other legal process or if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (1) investigate, prevent or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies; (2) enforce our agreements with you; (3) investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations; (4) protect the security or integrity of our Services (such as by sharing with companies facing similar threats); or (5) exercise or protect the rights and safety of PairHiring, our members, personnel or others. We attempt to notify members about legal demands for their personal data when appropriate in our judgment, unless prohibited by law or court order or when the request is an emergency. We may dispute such demands when we believe, in our discretion, that the requests are overbroad, vague or lack proper authority, but we do not promise to challenge every demand.
We keep some of your data even after you close your account. If you choose to close your PairHiring account, your personal data will generally stop being visible to others on our services within 24 hours. We generally delete closed account information within 30 days of account closure, except as noted below. We retain your personal data even after you have closed your account if reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations (including law enforcement requests), meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, maintain security, prevent fraud and abuse (e.g., if we have restricted your account for breach of our professional community policy), enforce our user agreement. We will retain de-personalized information after your account has been closed. Information you have shared with others (e.g., through InMail, updates or group posts) will remain visible after you close your account or delete the information from your own profile or mailbox, and we do not control data that other members have copied out of our services. Your profile may continue to be displayed in the services of others (e.g., search engine results) until they refresh their cache.
We keep most of your personal data for as long as your account is open. We generally retain your personal data if you keep your account open or as needed to provide you services. This includes data you or others provided to us and data generated or inferred from your use of our services. Even if you only use our services when looking for a new job every few years, we will retain your information and keep your profile open, unless you close your account. In some cases, we choose to retain certain information (e.g., insights about services use) in a depersonalized or aggregated form.
