Information We Share

We provide a platform that allows other members and third parties to see user profiles and give access to those profiles or create other profiles based on platform profiles and other information from third parties or publicly available sources that we may in turn sell to third parties as part of our products and services. This section of our policy describes the various ways in which we may share your personal information. You can learn more about your privacy choices, including your right to opt-out of the sale of your personal information.

We share the information that we collect from you or from third party sources with our affiliated companies, recruiters, educators and service providers. In the normal course of performing services for our clients, Personal Information may be shared within ReadyHire Nigeria and its affiliates for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy; as well as research and statistical purposes, system administration and crime prevention or detection.

Recruiters may use your information to contact you directly. Additionally, when you apply for a job with a company through the Sites, the information supplied by you or shared through ReadyHire Nigeria products and services may become part of such company's database. Similarly, if your ReadyHire Nigeria resume or your Profile is downloaded by a recruiter, your information may become a part of their database. In these instances, the use of such information by the recruiter will be subject to the privacy policy of that company, and we are not responsible for that company's use of your information.

Where you have provided Personal Information on a Site that is "hosted" or "co-branded" by another company then that information will be made available to both ReadyHire Nigeria and the hosting/co-branding company. ReadyHire Nigeria is not responsible for what the hosting/co-branding company, or any third party with whom you may share your Personal Information, subsequently does with your information. You should review the privacy policy of the hosting/co-branding company to ensure that you are comfortable with how it intends to use and disclose your information.

All users should be aware that when they choose to display or distribute Personal Information (such as their email address or other contact information on a public resume) via the Sites or any other distribution method, that information can be collected and used by others. This may result in unsolicited messages from third parties. We also may share Personal Information with our service providers who help us in the delivery of our own products and services to you. These service providers are required by contract or law to only use or disclose the information as necessary to perform services on our behalf or as otherwise required by law. Where we have knowledge that a service provider or partner is using or disclosing Personal Information in a manner inconsistent with this Policy, ReadyHire Nigeria will take reasonable steps to prevent or stop such improper use and/or disclosure.

ReadyHire Nigeria preserves the right to disclose without your prior permission any Personal Information about you or your use of this Site if we have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) protect and defend the rights, property or safety of ReadyHire Nigeria, employees, other users of the Sites, or the public; (b) enforce the terms and conditions that apply to use of the Sites; (c) as required by a legally valid request from a competent governmental authority; or (d) respond to claims that any content violates the rights of third-parties. We may also disclose Personal Information as we deem necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request.

In addition, Personal Information we have collected may be passed on to a third party in the event of a transfer of ownership or assets or a bankruptcy or other corporate reorganization of ReadyHire Nigeria. 

Analytics

We may combine certain non-personally identifiable Aggregate Data, or otherwise anonymized or de-identified data about our users, and use such data to prepare reports for our users (typically recruiters or educators). "Aggregate Data" for our purposes is demographic information (such as zip code, age, gender, race or ethnicity) and employment information (such as occupation, education and experience) of many individuals that is combined together. Aggregate Data is used to analyze the characteristics of various populations and does not identify any specific individuals. We may also use and share anonymized or de-identified data to track trends in the labor market as well as use of our products and services. Some Aggregate Data analytics reports can be used to better understand individual Profiles. For example, our Recruitment Edge product provides aggregate data trends on the longevity of specific career positions to allow recruiters to identify Profiles of individuals who may be more likely to be interested in making a career move.

Review, Update or Delete Your Account Information or Profile 

ReadyHire Nigeria takes reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Information is reliable for its intended use; as well as being current, accurate, and complete. However, information is collected from a variety of sources, and cannot be guaranteed to be current, accurate or complete, and in particular, we are not responsible for the accuracy or completeness of information whose source ReadyHire Nigeria does not control.
