Others buying our Services for your use, such as your employer or your institution, provide us with personal data about you and your eligibility to use the Services that they purchase.

1.6 Other

We are improving our Services, which means we get new data and create new ways to use data.

Our Services are dynamic, and we often introduce new features, which may require the collection of new information. If we collect materially different personal data or materially change how we collect we will update it promptly within our Privacy Policy. 

How We Use Your Data

We use your data to provide, support, personalize and develop our Services.

How we use your personal data will depend on which Services you use, how you use those Services and the choices you make. We use the data that we have about you to provide and personalize our Services, including with the help of automated systems and inferences we make, so that our Services can be more relevant and useful to you and others.

2.1 Services

Our Services help you connect with others, find work and business opportunities, stay informed, get training and be more productive.

We use your data to authorize access to our Services and honor your settings.

Stay Connected

Our Services allow you to stay in touch and up to date with employers, organizations, institutions, and candidates. To do so, you can “connect” with the professionals who you choose. 

Stay Informed

Our Services allow you to stay informed about regional and national news, events and ideas regarding professional topics you care about, and from professionals you respect. Our Services also allow you to improve your professional skills, or learn new ones. We use the data we have about you (e.g., data you provide, data we collect from your engagement with our Services and inferences we make from the data we have about you), to personalize our Services for you, such as by recommending or ranking relevant content and conversations on our Services. So, if you let us know that you are interested in a new skill (e.g., by watching a learning video), we will use this information to personalize content in your feed, suggest that you follow certain members on our site, or suggest related learning content to help you towards that new skill. We use your content, activity and other data, including your name and photo, to provide notices to your network and others. 

Career

Our Services allow you to explore careers, evaluate educational opportunities, and seek out, and apply for career opportunities. Your profile can be found by those looking to hire or be hired by you when you click the apply button. Your profile is not shared with anyone. You must connect to an institution under your education tab for them to see your profile. An employer can see your profile only by applying to their position on our platform. We will use your data to recommend jobs. We may use automated systems to provide content and recommendations to help make our Services more relevant to our Members, Visitors and customers. Keeping your profile accurate and up-to-date with content and media (videos/photos) may help you better connect and get hired by a quality employer. Whenever you submit an application to the employer, please review your profile before submitting. We take a snapshot of current profile information and send it to the employer. Any changes to the profile after submission will not be reflected on the previous application(s) sent.

In some cases, we work with trusted third parties to perform this research, under controls that are designed to protect your privacy. We publish or allow others to publish economic insights, presented as aggregated data rather than personal data. Any information that is shared (salary, hiring wage, start date, etc) is not shared to the public but is for our use to better connect the community and it’s growing industries and talent.

Your profile is visible to an institution or organization when you connect with them on your “education tab” within your profile. An employer only sees your information when you apply to their position or choose to share it.

Media - Videos/Photos 

The videos and photos you upload or attached to your profile are for the purpose of placing you within a right employer fit. We want you to showcase your skills and abilities through video to provide the prospective employer the opportunity to see your talent(s).

The purpose of the media within your profiles is to enhance the quality connection between you and the best fit employer. These quality employers abide by Section 10 of EEOC. We are committed to utilize video, photos, and more resources to make the best employment connections possible within your community.

We may use others to help us with our Services.

We use others to help us provide our Services (e.g., maintenance, analysis, audit, payments, fraud detection, marketing and development). They will have access to your information as reasonably necessary to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for other purposes.

3.4 Legal Disclosures

We may need to share your data when we believe it’s 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 CUED-In, 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. 

3.5 Change in Control or Sale

We may share your data when our business is sold to others, but it must continue to be used in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

We can also share your personal data as part of a sale, merger or change in control, or in preparation for any of these events. Any other entity which buys us or part of our business will have the right to continue to use your data, but only in the manner set out in this Privacy Policy unless you agree otherwise.

Your Choices & Obligations

We keep most of your personal data for as long as your account is open.

We generally retain your personal data as long as 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.

4.2 Rights to Access and Control Your Personal Data

You can access your personal data. You have many choices about how your data is collected, used and shared. Your data isn’t shared with anyone until you would like to connect. 

We provide many choices about the collection, use and sharing of your data, from deleting or correcting data you include in your profile . We offer you settings to control and manage the personal data we have about you.

For personal data that we have about you, you can:

Members can make these changes within their profile setting. 

4.3 Account Closure

We keep some of your data even after you close your account.

If you choose to close your CUEDIn account, your personal data will generally stop being visible to others.

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 Policies), enforce our User Agreement, or fulfill your request to "unsubscribe" from further messages from us. 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. Groups content and ratings or review content associated with closed accounts will show an unknown user as the source.
