Information We Collect from All Web Visitors

When you visit our Site, we collect the following information from all visitors:

Log Data

We collect a standard set of data from all visitors to the website. Also known as “log data,” our servers may collect information that includes your IP address, when your computer or device visited the site, the URL of the website you arrived from, and the type of device or browser you used to access the site. We also record whether you navigate to one of the other services owned by our parent company, Inflection.com, Inc.

Analytics data

We use standard web tools to collect basic information about how you use the SafestHires website. We use this information to understand how groups of users use the site, to understand trends and where people come to our site from, and to improve the site.

Tools We Use to Collect Data from Web Visitors

This site makes use of tools such as cookies to collect various types of information about your activity and computer while you use the website. We only use information collected in the background to deliver and market our service.

Internal Cookies

We use different types of cookies (both temporary and persistent) to make it easier for you to navigate the site, track usage of our site to improve your experience, and remember your preferences. Disabling cookies may limit your ability to use some areas of our site. If you would like to disable cookies, you can often do so with your browser settings, or by enabling Do Not Track features in your browser. Be aware that you may be unable to use certain features of our products if you disable cookies.

 

How do we use the information we collect?

Your information is only used to provide and market this service to you, which includes operating the website, remembering your preferences, conducting in-house research, preventing fraud or abuse, marketing you products or services offered by us, and to communicate with you and address your concerns.

Payment Information

All Payment Method information that we collect through the Site is used only to bill you for our products and services. The information is processed by a certified third-party service provider that is compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (“PCI DSS”).

We Only Share Your Information in the Following Situations

With Your Consent: We may share your information when you give us permission.

With Service Providers: We use certain trusted third parties to provide services for us such as cookie support, obtaining candidate background information and payments processing. We only share the minimum amount of information necessary to provide the service. In addition, any third-party service provider we use is required to give your information the same protections described in this Privacy Policy. We will not share your information with third-party marketing companies or data aggregators, wholesale buyers or sellers of data for marketing purposes.

Deidentified and Aggregated Data: We may share or disclose information we collect after deidentifying and aggregating it so it cannot be linked back to an individual person. We contractually require third parties to respect this practice.

Business Transfers: In the event that SafestHires, Inc. is involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, your information may be sold or transferred as part of that transaction. However, the new entity will be bound by this privacy policy after the sale or transfer.

Fraud and Abuse Prevention: We partner with certain third party vendors to prevent fraud and abuse. When you make a purchase, we analyze your payment information and unique device identifiers (including, but not limited to, IP address, MAC address, geographical location, browser and operating system settings) to identify suspected fraudulent activity and block it. We may share information associated with activity flagged as fraudulent (including, but not limited to, payment information, email addresses, and unique device identifiers) with our security partners or law enforcement for further investigation.

Legal Process and Emergency Circumstances: We may disclose or preserve for future disclosure your information if we believe, after due consideration, that doing so is reasonably necessary to protect SafestHires’ rights or property or to comply with a law, regulation, valid legal process, or to prevent imminent and serious bodily harm to a person.

Unless prohibited from doing so by law or court order, we will do our best to provide subjects – including candidates – of law enforcement requests with advance notice before we disclose their information to law enforcement, if we have contact information for that customer. We reserve the right to withhold advance notice where it would impede an investigation of identity theft, or in situations involving imminent physical harm or harm to minors.

 

How long we keep data

SafestHires will retain the information you provide to us for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

 

Changes to and Deleting your Account

If your account information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may correct, update, amend, deactivate or delete your account by making the change on our member information page or by emailing us at support@safesthires.com We will try to respond to your request within 30 days. We may be required by law or regulation to retain certain account information associated with your use of the service.
