This Privacy Policy applies to all users, including both those who use the Company Services and the Company Sites without being registered with or subscribing to a Company Service or a Company Site, and those who have registered with or subscribed to a Company Service or a Company Site. The present Privacy Policy applies to our collection and use of your personal information (i.e., information that identifies a specific person, such as full name or email address, etc.). It also describes generally our practices for handling certain categories of information that we do not connect to your personal account or profile.

The Company and our service providers may collect the following information from and about you:

Registration Information is the information you submit to register for the Company Services and/or the Company Sites, for example, to create an account, post comments, photos and videos, publish your CV or vacancy, receive a newsletter or a chat message, etc. Registration Information, depending on the specific service, may include, for example: your profile picture (“avatar”) or your company logo, full name or your company name, email address or your company website, spoken languages, your country of residence or country of incorporation, your city and/or state, category and type of your services that you may wish to advertise and promote, etc.

Public Information and Posts consist of comments or content that you post to the Company Services or the Company Sites, and the information about you that accompanies those posts or content, which may include a name, user name, comments, likes, shares, status (“About”), profile information and picture. Public Information and Posts are always public, which means they are available to everyone and may be displayed in search results on external search engines.

Information from Social Media. If you access or log into a Company Site through a social media service or connect a Company Service to a social media service, the information we collect may also include your user ID and/or user name associated with that social media service, any information or content you have permitted the social media service to share with the Company, such as your profile picture, email address or friends lists, and any information you have made public in connection with that social media service. When you access the Company Sites and/or the Company Services through social media services or when you connect a Company Service or a Company Site to social media services, you are authorizing the Company to collect, store, and use such information and content in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Activity Information. When you access and interact with the Company Service and the Company Sites, the Company and our service providers may collect certain information about those visits. For example, in order to permit your connection to the Company Services and the Company Sites, our servers receive and record information about your computer, device, and browser, including potentially your IP address, location (including your precise location), browser type, cookies, and other software or hardware information. Our websites use cookies and other tracking technologies (such as browser cookies, localStorage, pixels, beacons, and Adobe Flash technology including “Flash” cookies) to store or transmit small pieces of data, such as IP address, user account and profile information, unique identifiers, and other information. Our websites use these technologies to remember your browser, distinguish you from other users, deliver our services to you as described in this Privacy Policy, and for interest-based advertising. If you access the Company Services and the Company Sites from a mobile or other device, we may collect a unique device identifier associated with the device or other information related to that device and network.

Other parties that support us by serving advertisements or providing services, such as allowing you to share content or to track aggregate usage statistics, may also use these technologies to collect similar information when you use the Company Services and the Company Sites or other parties’ services. Those parties may also use these technologies, along with activity information they collect, to recognize you across the devices you use, such as a mobile device and a laptop or other computer. The Company does not control these parties’ technologies. Their use is governed by the privacy policies of the parties using such technologies.

We may supplement the information we collect with information from other sources, such as publicly available information about your online and offline activity from social media services, commercially available sources, and information from our Company Affiliates or business partners.

  • To allow social sharing functionality. If you log in with or connect a social media service account with the Company Services and/or the Company Sites, we may share your user name, profile picture (“avatar”), and likes, as well as your activities and comments with other Company Services and Company Sites users. We may also share the same information with the social media service provider. By logging in with or connecting your account on the Company Sites with a social media service, you are authorizing the Company to share information we collect from and about you with the social media service provider and other users of the Company Services and/or the Company Sites, and you understand that the social media service’s use of the shared information will be governed by the social media service’s privacy policy.

Location of Data. The Company Services are hosted in and managed from the Netherlands and Gibraltar. If you are a user located outside the Netherlands and Gibraltar, you understand and consent to having any personal information (which may include information collected through the use of cookies and other technologies, as described above) processed in the Netherlands and/or Gibraltar or in any other country in which the Company has assets and/or facilities or in which the Company engages service providers.

In certain circumstances, courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies or security authorities in the Netherlands and Gibraltar may be entitled to access your personal information.

Linked Services. The Company Services may be linked to sites operated by unaffiliated companies, and may carry advertisements or offer content, functionality, games, newsletters, contests or sweepstakes, or applications developed and maintained by unaffiliated companies. The Company is not responsible for the privacy practices of unaffiliated companies, and once you leave the Company Services and /or the Company Sites and click an advertisement you should check the applicable privacy policy of the other service.

Collection of Personal Financial Information by a Payment Service.

If you wish to purchase a product or make a payment for your subscription(s) using a Payment Service, you will be directed to a Payment Service webpage. Any information that you provide to a Payment Service will be subject to the applicable Payment Service's privacy policy, rather than this Privacy Policy. We have no control over, and are not responsible for, any Payment Service's use of information collected through any Payment Service.

Data Retention. We will retain your information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or allowed by law.

Because of the nature of caching technology, your account may not be instantly inaccessible to others. We may also retain backup information related to your account on our servers for some time after cancellation or your request for deletion, for fraud detection or to comply with applicable law or our internal security or recordkeeping policies. It may not always be possible to completely remove or delete all of your information due to technical constraints, or contractual, financial or legal requirements.
