YOUR PRIVACY IS IMPORTANT TO US
What personal information of mine is collected through the website?
There are three classes of people who may access the Fitzii website and the information we collect about each one is different:
- Visitors – Visitors to the Fitzii website may visit various pages on our site to learn more about the services we offer and explore other information we publish on our site. We do not collect any personal information from visitors to the site until they specifically decide to sign up as a user.
- User (Recruiter) – As a recruiter you will need to supply your basic contact information when you sign up to use the service (name, email address and company). If you subsequently decide to use any of our paid services, we will require credit card details to process the payments for these services.
- User (Job Seeker) – As a job seeker you will need to supply your basic contact information when you sign up for the service (name and email address). If you subsequently either apply for a job and/or create a Fitzii profile you will be required to enter information to complete your application or profile. This information includes information typically found in a resume, such as your experience and education, as well as responses to questions asked in relation to the position you are applying for (e.g., “How many years of experience do you have in a direct sales role?”). For some job applications, as dictated by the type of application process the Recruiter selects, you will also need to complete our personality assessment which involves responding to between 50 and 100 questions. Job seekers may also elect to receive periodic notices of job postings and career opportunities. The scope of such notices may in some cases be specifically determined by job seekers and may in other cases be determined based on the information provided in such Job Seekers’ Fitzii profile or in regards to previously completed personality assessment(s).
As you explore the Fitzii website, we may also collect information via frequently used information-tracking tools, such as “cookies”. These cookies collect information such as your browser type, your Internet Protocol (IP) address and the actions you take on the website (i.e. pages views and links clicked).
How is this information used?
The information we gather from recruiters allows us to communicate with each recruiter individually and provide them with the transactional communications necessary for their account. We may additionally use this information to send marketing or other communications unless the recruiter has opted-out (see below).
The information we gather from job seekers will be used to communicate with each job seeker individually and provide them with the transactional communications necessary for their account. We may additionally use this information to send marketing or other communications unless the job seeker has opted-out (see below).
Additionally, any information the job seeker has included in his or her profile or in a specific job application will be made available to the recruiter who posted the job in order to help that recruiter to sort and select candidates to create the best shortlist for the position they are looking to fill. If the job seeker has chosen to make their profile “open”, certain aspects of it (resume, experience, education, etc.) will be visible to other recruiters who may be looking for candidates.
Do you share my information with anyone?
Fitzii uses a third-party company to manage credit card processing. This company is not permitted to store, retain, or use billing information except for the sole purpose of credit card processing on Fitzii’s behalf and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information we provide to them.
We may also share non-personally identifying information in the aggregate with third parties, such as the media, industry observers, potential customers or partners. For example, we may disclose the number of users that have been exposed to, or clicked on, through our Site.
Fitzii also partners with a third party scientific partner in order to perform the personality assessment. The responses to the personality assessment questions will be provided to our scientific partner in a non-identifiable format in order to permit the scoring of those responses. In other words, none of your personally identifiable information will be provided to, or otherwise associated with your responses to the personality assessment questions provided to our external scientific partner solely for the purpose of permitting scoring of your assessment so there will be no ability for our scientific partner to identify you when scoring the personality assessment. All communications with our scientific partner will be done via a secure interface and no personal details of the job seeker will be transmitted with the response or the returned scores.
If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, a sale of all or a substantial portion of our assets, or other similar transaction, your information may be transferred as part of that transaction. We will notify you by email and/or a prominent notice on our website of any such transaction and the choices you may have regarding your information.
How do we obtain your consent?
Job seekers are also able to opt-in at sign up to have their profile information visible to other recruiters or only to the recruiter of a specific job to which they are applying. This option is also configurable in the user account management screen and can be changed at any time.
How do I “opt-out” of marketing communications?
You are able to opt-out of marketing and non-transactional communications when you sign up for a Fitzii account. If you would like to cease receiving marketing and non-transactional communications, you can choose to be excluded from marketing and non-transactional communications at any time by de-selecting those options in your account. You can also request this via email.
How do you keep my information safe and secure?
We are committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We employ reasonable technical, administrative and physical safeguards to protect the confidentiality of your personal information, employing industry-recognized technical safeguards, such as firewalls, and have adopted and implemented security procedures to protect your information from loss, misuse or unauthorized alteration. Notwithstanding our efforts, we cannot guarantee absolute or unqualified protection of this information given the open nature and resulting instability of the Internet and World Wide Web, and we make no representations or warranties as to the effectiveness of our security and assume no liability for security breaches or any failure in the security of your computer equipment, your Internet service provider or other networks and communications providers.
