Privacy Policy

Renowned Corp. (the “Company”), as the owner and operator of www.whizjobs.com (the “Site”), is dedicated to protecting the privacy of our users, and strives to provide a safe, secure online user experience. This Privacy Statement sets forth the online data collection and usage policies and practices that apply to this Site.

By registering or by using this Site You explicitly accept, without limitation or qualification, the collection, use and transfer of the personal information provided by you (‘You” or “Your”) in the manner described in this Privacy Statement. Please read this Privacy Statement carefully as it affects Your rights and liabilities under applicable state and federal laws. If You disagree with the way we collect and process personal information collected on the Web site, please do not use it. 

In addition, by registering or by using this Site You explicitly accept, without limitation or qualification, the Company’s terms and conditions for this Site, which are incorporated by reference in this Privacy Statement.

Scope of this Policy
This policy applies to the Site. It is the Company’s policy to comply with data protection legislation. This regulates the processing of information relating to You and grants You various rights in respect of Your personal data.

The Site contains hyperlinks to other web sites over which the Company has no control. The Company is not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of other web sites to which You choose to link from this Site. The Company strongly suggests You thoroughly review the privacy policies of those other web sites so You can understand how they collect, use and share Your information.

We also do not control the data use practices of either (a) employers or others who may access Your information on this Site, or (b) third party Ad Networks and other third parties with whom we work to serve You personalized ads on our Site. We encourage You to review the privacy policies and opt-out choices of those third parties so You can understand how they collect, use and share Your information.

Information We Collect and Retain
You do not have to give us any personal information in order to perform job searches or to read the content portions of our Site. We collect the following general types of information about You when You visit our Site: personal information, demographic information, behavioral information, and indirect information. Sometimes we collect combinations of all these types of information. In each case, it is indicated on the web site whether any personal or demographic data must be provided to use the requested service or not.

We also collect behavioral information regarding how You use our Site and mobile applications, the areas of our Site that You visit, what services You access, and information about Your computer hardware and software including Your IP address, geographic location, browser and operating system type, domain names, access times and referring web site domains. This information is necessary for analyzing the use of resources, troubleshooting problems, preventing fraud, and improving our services.

In addition, the Company may collect indirect information about You when You use certain third party services on our Site. For example if You provide a title of ‘Mr.’ we will assume You are male.

We may personalize the advertising that You are shown on our Site with which we have a business relationship. In order to provide this personalization, in addition to information we collect about You on our Site, we acquire information (including personal, demographic, behavioral and indirect information) about You from third parties who provide it to us.

How Information is Used
We use the information we gather on the Site for the purposes of providing our services, responding to any queries You may have, operating and improving the Site, fostering a positive user experience and delivering the products and services that we offer to jobseekers and employers. Our services include the display of personalized products, content, and advertising relating to Your career experience and interests, either on our Site or other web sites with which we have a business or partnership relationship. The information we gather on the Site may be shared within the Company in order to deliver these products and services.

By registering an account with the Company for the use of this Site or opting in when presented with choices, You have consented for us to use Your information, subject to local law, in the following ways:

  • to allow You to create an account;
  • to create a profile for You based on information that You have provided to us;
  • to contact You about Site updates, informational and service-related communications, including important security updates;
  • to provide You additional communications, information, and promotions such as newsletters and career advice;
  • to inform You of other products or services available from the Company;
  • to enable You to provide feedback, to contact us and for us to respond to You;
  • to provide information about You and Your potential interest in job postings to employer customers;
  • to provide products and services to employer customers to complete the recruitment and hiring process, such as accessing the searchable resume database;
  • to provide products and services that enable users to network, post information on bulletin boards, view and compare profiles, and career background and experience;
  • to generate internal reports about the use of our Site; and
Some of our products and services, such as our searchable resume database enable third parties to see Your personal information and to contact You. Profile information may be used for networking with other community members or may be visible to employers who are using the Company’s Site. In addition, portions of Your searchable resume may be made public.

Information You post in public areas of the site or place in the searchable resume database will be accessed, used, and stored by others around the world, including those in countries that might not have legislation that guarantees adequate protection of personal information as defined by Your country of residence.  By providing Your personal information for inclusion in our Site database, You acknowledge Your consent to Your information being used as described here. While the Company takes measures to safeguard Your information from unauthorized access or inappropriate use by third parties, the Company does not, and cannot, control these third parties and thus the Company is not responsible for their use of information You post or otherwise make available in public areas of the Company’s Site. Accordingly, You should ensure that You do not post sensitive information, including social security numbers, birthdays, or photographs to your account with the Company’s Site.

Disclosure of Information to Others
We disclose to third parties within Your country and abroad Your personal information, combined personal, demographic, behavioral or indirect information, as set forth below:

1. We may share Your information with third parties who help us in the delivery of our own products and services to You. We disclose information to companies and individuals we employ to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include hosting our web servers, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. These companies and individuals may be located in a country whose data protection legislation is different from Your country, and they will have access to Your personal information as necessary to perform their functions, but they may not share that information with any other third party or use that data for any other purpose. We will remain responsible for any information shared in this way.

2. We may disclose such information to third parties if You consent to such disclosure. For example, if You make Your resume searchable, then all parties with access to our searchable resume database (or copies thereof) will have access to Your resume. If You indicate by configuring Your profile that You would like to receive information about the opportunities, products or services of third parties, we supply Your contact information to select third parties such as employers, recruiters, data aggregators, marketers or others for the purpose of sending You e-mail or otherwise communicating with You. We use data we have about You (such as the interests and preferences You have expressed) to determine whether You might be interested in the opportunities, products or services of a particular third party.

We also share aggregated anonymous information about visitors to the Site with Company’s clients, partners, other Site visitors, and other third parties so that they can understand the kinds of visitors to the Site and how those visitors use the Site in order to serve advertisements to You on our Site or other sites with which we have a business relationship. We may also aggregate on an anonymous basis data regarding job qualifications, schooling, age, experience level or other information relevant to the job search or competition among job seekers for any such job. Such aggregated data does not identify users individually, and may be made available to employers or fellow job seekers or community members.

3. We disclose information if legally required to do so, or at our discretion pursuant to a request from a governmental entity or if we believe in good faith – after considering Your privacy interests and other factors – that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with a court order, subpoena, or other legal process; (b) protect our rights or property or our affiliated companies; (c) prevent a crime or protect national security; or (d) protect the personal safety of users or the public. Because Company Worldwide, Inc. is a US company and information collected on our Site is stored in whole or in part in the United States, Your information may become subject to U.S. law.

4. We may disclose and transfer such information to a third party who acquires any or all of Company’s assets, whether such acquisition is by way of merger, consolidation or purchase. In addition, if the Company becomes the subject of an insolvency proceeding, whether voluntary or involuntary, Company or its liquidator, administrator, receiver or administrative receiver may sell, license or otherwise dispose of such information in a transaction approved by the court.

Again, in each of these situations, the recipients of Your data may potentially be located in any country in the world. If You are a resident in any EU member state, for example, You must be aware that the EU authorities do not generally consider that the regulations of non-EU countries ensure an adequate or equivalent level of protection as compared to the EU data protection regulations.

An Important Note about Your Resume
When You create or post a resume to the Site, that resume is stored in our searchable resume database in the United States. You may control the status of Your resume by setting it to private or public.

If You set Your resume as private, it is not searchable by potential employers or other with access to our resume database.  You may still use Your resume to apply online to a job. If You do apply online to a job, Your resume will be transferred to the relevant employer, who may retain a copy of Your resume or distribute it to third parties. We cannot control their use or retention of Your resume information.

If You set Your resume as public, but want Your contact information to be confidential, Your resume will be searchable by potential employers, but we will hide Your contact information and current company.  You must also remove Your contact information from Your uploaded or copy and paste text resume.  You should be aware that if You have a rare skill or job title, for example, it may still be possible for You to be identified even without Your contact details being included. If You are worried about being identified, You should not include specific details by which You could be identified. If You use a confidential resume to apply to a job online, the employer to whom You send Your resume will be able to view Your contact information in order to contact You about Your application.

If You allow Your resume to be searchable without making it confidential, then all parties with access to our searchable resume database (or copies thereof) will have access to Your resume.  Employers or other parties with access to our searchable resume database may be located in countries whose data protection legislation may not be equivalent to the laws in Your country.  For example, Your resume may be viewed and accessed by employers outside the European Economic Area who have access to our searchable database. By making Your resume searchable, You are expressly consenting to such transfers of data.

We attempt to limit access to our searchable resume database to legitimate users such as paying employers, recruiters, hiring managers, headhunters and human resource professionals, as well as law enforcement and national security agencies, but cannot guarantee that other parties will not gain access to this database. We cannot control the use made of resumes by third parties who access such resumes while they are in our searchable database. You may remove Your resume from our searchable database at any time; details of how to do this are given below. However, employers, recruiters and others who have paid for access to that database, as well as parties who have otherwise gained access to the database may have retained a copy of Your resume in their own files or databases. We cannot control the retention, use or privacy of resumes or profiles that have been downloaded by third parties.  Accordingly, You should not put sensitive information, personality profiles, or other information You would not want made public, in Your resume.

If You provide us with details of a reference, it is Your responsibility to ensure that the person is aware that You have forwarded his/her details and has consented in writing for You to do so.

Your resume must not contain sensitive data relating to Your (i) racial or ethnic origin (ii) political beliefs (iii) philosophical or religious beliefs (iv) membership of a trade union or political party (v) physical or mental health or genetic makeup (vi) addictions, sexual life (vii) the commission of criminal offences or proceedings and associated penalties or fines, or (viii) any Social Security Number or national identification number.  You will be solely responsible if you include this sensitive information on your resume and you post it to public areas of the Site.

Posting Your Information to Public Areas of the Site
Please remember that if You post any of Your personal information in public areas of the Site, such as the searchable resume database, such information may be collected and used by others over whom the Company has no control. We cannot control the use made by third parties of information You post or otherwise make available in public areas of the Site.

Your Choices About Your Information 
Because managing Your career is a life-long process, we retain all the information we gather about You in an effort to make Your repeat use with us more efficient, practical and relevant until You change or remove Your personal data as described below. You may have access to, review, correct, update, change or delete Your account profile information or resume at any time. Simply log into Your account and make the necessary changes within the administrative panel. You may delete Your resume from Company’s online database at any time by accessing Your account. Before providing You with a copy of Your personal information or correcting, updating or deleting such information, we reserve the right to verify and authenticate Your identity and the personal information to which You have requested access. Access to or correction, updating or deletion of Your personal information may be denied or limited by the Company if it would violate another person’s rights and/or as otherwise permitted by applicable law. We will respond to information access requests within 30 days of receipt. If we require additional time to provide access to Your information, we will acknowledge receipt of Your request within 30 days and promptly supplement our response within the time period required by applicable law.

If You wish to delete or close Your account or account profile information altogether, please contact us. An email will be sent to You to confirm that Your personal information has been deleted (save for an archival copy which is not accessible by You or third parties on the Internet). The archival copy is retained only for as long as Company reasonably considers necessary for audit and record purposes. We will also retain logs, demographic, indirect, and statistical information that may relate to You but do not identify You personally. If Your personal information was previously accessed by others using our Site, we are not able to delete the information or copies thereof from their systems.

If You are a job seeker with a public resume and have not logged onto the Site for an extended period, we may make Your resume unsearchable. Separately, and regardless of Your resume privacy setting, if You do not log into Your account for a significant period of time, it will expire and be scheduled for deletion by the Company. The Company’s current expiration and deletion period for this Site is 36 months; we may extend or reduce this period in order to adjust to changing hiring patterns. If we change the period, we will update this notice. You will, always receive an email from us before we delete Your resume or Your account, and You always have the ability to delete Your resume and Your account at any time by logging into Your account. Deletion of expired accounts occurs on a periodic basis and includes the deletion of all applicable account data including resumes and contact information.

If You previously opted to receive newsletters, commercial e-mails or other communications from the Company or third parties, but subsequently change Your mind, You may opt-out by editing Your account profile as described above. If You previously opted not to receive such communications, You may later opt-in by editing Your account profile.

Moreover, one of our primary purposes is to provide You with a platform to broadcast the information in Your resume and profile widely in order to maximize Your career opportunities. Such an environment does present a risk that unauthorized third parties will view this data.  Further, Your resume should not contain any sensitive data that You would not want made public such as Your social security number, birthdate, home address, or photographs.  You should be aware that the posting of Your resume on this Site could be discoverable by Your current employer.

California Residents
Pursuant to the California Online Protection Act of 2003, Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code §§22575-22579 (“OPPA”), a California resident who has provided personal information to a business with whom he/she has established a business relationship for personal, family, or household purposes (“California customer”) is entitled to request information about whether the business has disclosed personal information to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. In general, if the business has made such a disclosure of personal information, upon receipt of a request by a California customer, the business is required to provide a list of all third parties to whom personal information was disclosed in the preceding calendar year, as well as a list of the categories of personal information that were disclosed.

However, under OPPA, a business is not required to provide the above-described lists if the business adopts and discloses to the public (in its privacy policy) a policy of not disclosing customer’s personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless the customer first affirmatively agrees to the disclosure, as long as the business maintains and discloses this policy. Rather, the business may comply with the law by notifying the customer of his or her right to prevent disclosure of personal information and providing a cost free means to exercise that right.

As stated in this Privacy Statement, we do not share information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless You affirmatively agree to such disclosure. If You do ask us to share Your information with a third party for its marketing purposes, we will only share information in connection with that specific promotion, as we do not share information with any third party on a continual basis. To prevent disclosure of Your personal information for use in direct marketing by a third party, do not opt in to such use when You provide personally identifiable information on our Site.. Please note that whenever You opt in to receive future communications from a third party, Your information will be subject to the third party's privacy policy. If You later decide that You do not want that third party to use Your information, You will need to contact the third party directly, as we have no control over how third parties use information. You should always review the privacy policy of any party that collects Your information to determine how that entity will handle Your information.

California customers may request further information about our compliance with this law by e-mailing admin@renowned-corp.com. Please note that we are only required to respond to one request per customer each year, and we are not required to respond to requests made by means other than through this e-mail address.

Use of Cookies
Cookies:  The Company uses "cookies" to help personalize and maximize Your online experience and time online, including for storing user preferences, improving search results and ad selection, and tracking user trends.

A cookie is a text file that is either stored in Your computer’s memory temporarily (a “session” cookie) or placed on Your hard drive (a “persistent” cookie) by a web page server. Cookies are not used to run programs or deliver viruses to Your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to Your computer and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to You.

When You return to the Company Site, cookies enable us to retrieve the information You previously provided, so You can easily use the features that You customized.  Because of the Company’s use of cookies, the Company is able to deliver faster and more accurate results and a more personalized Site experience.

Session cookies expire after two hours of inactivity or when You close Your Internet browser. When You carry out a job search or apply online a large amount of data is processed by our system and transferred through each page of the search or application process. This information includes Your job search criteria, data that identifies Your resume, covering letter, the job You are applying for, Your right to work in the relevant country and the results of any questionnaire You have completed as part of the online application process as well as demographic information that is not unique to You. “Session” cookies allow us to keep track of this data until You have completed Your search or application.

We also allow other companies to display advertisements to You while You are visiting our Site. Because Your web browser must request these advertisements from the other companies’ servers, these companies can view, edit or set their own cookies, just as if You had requested a web page from their site. Company has no control over, and is not responsible for, the practices of those third party advertisers. Company encourages You to review the policies of such advertisers.

We use persistent cookies and related technologies (such as web beacons described below) to determine and track direct and indirect candidate application traffic in response to Job Postings either on Company or on the websites of third parties through Company’s Career-Ad-Network (described below). We also allow persistent third party cookies as part of online advertising campaigns to determine and track site traffic landing from Company’s advertising banners that have been placed on the websites of third parties. The data collected via these cookies is anonymous and the information is not linked to Your personally identifiable information without Your permission. The “persistent” cookies placed by our third party ad servers will remain on Your computer after You have left our site for up to 20 years unless You choose to
