“Do Not Sell My Personal Information Rights Notice”
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) aims to provide California residents a host of new rights, among them the ability to prevent companies from “selling” their Personal Information.
A common understanding of “selling” information is that it involves a company taking information it has learned about you and exchanging that information with an unrelated third party for money, who will then use that data for a new purpose that you did not intend. JBN never does this with your Personal Information. JBN uses its users’ Personal Information in order to help people get jobs. However, the CCPA has a much broader definition of “sell” than this. JBN strives to live up to the law, and your wishes, as it relates to this right. We detail how we do this in the sections below.
What JBN does that could fall under the CCPA’s definition of “sell”?
We may share your public resume to employers and recruiters.
We recommend your public resume to employers and recruiters.
This list is not meant to be comprehensive, but shows examples of how JBN may use your Personal Information.
Why does JBN do this?
Showing your resume to employers is how JBN helps you get interviewed and thus job offers.
Sharing data with JBN’s affiliates allows job seekers to access more job listings and employers, and for employers to access more job seekers, as well as providing improved security for JBN’s users.
Allowing employers to measure job listing performance helps drive more jobs to the people who want those jobs.
All of the above are crucial to JBN providing the best user experience possible for its users and important to JBN’s core purposes. JBN does not sell data to data brokers. For example, when JBN shows a public resume to an employer, it is because you, the job seeker, have made the resume public in order to show yourself to an employer. A request to not “sell” (that is, “transfer” to an employer) your information runs counter to this activity and prevents JBN from offering JBN’s services to you. In the section below, JBN details how JBN will work to honor your request if you choose to exercise this right.
How can I opt-out?
The transfers JBN notes above are inherent in JBN’s services. So, in order to opt out of these transfers, you can request that JBN delete your account and Personal Information by visiting the link provided here. By submitting this request, you are declaring that you are a California resident availing yourself of the rights afforded to you under the CCPA. Once your data is deleted, then JBN is unable to transfer it.
JBN also asks you to please see below, as you can still search for jobs on JBN even after opting out!
Why am I being asked to delete my account?
How JBN transfers data is integral to JBN’s services that help job seekers find great jobs, and employers find great candidates. At this time, JBN is not able to provide JBN’s services without these transfers. However, you can still use JBN to find and apply to jobs to the extent that you wish!
Can I still use the Sites after making this request?
Users who make this request will still be able to access all the services JBN offers on the Sites that do not require JBN to collect and transfer your email address. You may always register a new account or sign up to receive job alerts, but you will be required to use a different email address.
Is it possible JBN’s practices will change?
JBN is carefully watching the State of California and its Attorney General for any new interpretations of the CCPA. If JBN feels it is proper to transfer the user data as JBN’s services are designed to do, JBN will revisit this issue. Our mission remains to help you get jobs in the manner that you wish.
