UNJoblink does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

  • Basic account information: We ask for basic information from you in order to set up your account. For example, we require individuals who sign up for an account to provide an email address and password, along with a name (for an employer account).
  • Social Networking Site: If you connect to our website using Facebook, LinkedIn, or other social networking sites (each a “Social Networking Provider”), we will receive information that you authorize the Social Networking Provider to share with us, which may include public profile information, current city, and email address. When we receive this information, it becomes UNJoblink account information for purposes of your use of the Services. Any information that we collect from your Social Networking Provider account may depend on the privacy settings you have set with the Social Networking Provider, so please consult the Social Networking Provider’s privacy and data practices.
  • Payment and contact information: Those who engage in transactions with UNJoblink – by purchasing UNJoblink’s services or products, are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions.

  • Communications with us: You may also provide us with information when you respond to surveys, communicate with us about a support question, post a review, setup your job preference, upload your profile picture, or sign up for a job alert. When you communicate with us via form or email, we store a copy of our communications.

For example, we collect information about the actions that users and employers perform on a site – for example, page views and jobs saved, as well as anonymized data on job views, clicked to apply, search queries. We use this information to, for example, provide our Services to you, get insights on how people use our Services so we can make our Services better, and understand and make predictions about user retention.

Cookies and Other Technologies

To enrich and perfect your online experience, UNJoblink uses “Cookies”, similar technologies and services provided by others to display personalized content, appropriate advertising and store your preferences on your computer.

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Pixel tags (also called web beacons) are small blocks of code placed on websites and emails. UNJoblink uses cookies and other technologies like pixel tags to help us identify and track visitors, usage, and access preferences for our Services, as well as track and understand email campaign effectiveness and to deliver targeted ads.

UNJoblink visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using UNJoblink’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of UNJoblink’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

We do not currently support “Do Not Track (DNT)” requests and similar settings or mechanisms.

Analytics Cookies

We use third-party service providers such as Google Analytics to monitor and analyse the use of our Service.

Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualise and personalise the ads of its own advertising network.

This integration of Google Analytics anonymizes your IP address. It works by shortening visitor’s IP addresses within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the complete IP address be sent to a Google server and shortened within the US.

Advertisements

Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on our Services. Google’s use of the DoubleClick cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to our users based on their visit to our Services or other websites on the Internet. You may disable all the DoubleClick Cookies for interest-based advertising by visiting the Google Ads Settings page.
