TERMS THAT APPLY TO JOB SEEKERS 

As a Job Seeker, you can (i) use the Services to search for jobs, (ii) apply for jobs (“Job Applications”), (iii) receive job alert emails or text messages, where such features are available to you (“Job Alerts”), and (iv) include your resume and other applicable information in the Resume Database. For purposes of this Agreement, references to “resume” or “CV” shall also mean a curriculum vitae, profile, references, recommendations, and other similar written overviews or assessments of a person’s experience and qualifications.

If you have a Getintojobs account, provide your resume/CV to Getintojobs, and/or sign up for Job Alerts, you agree that we may (A) use the information you provide to send you information about Job Advertisements that may be of interest to you; and (B) display or provide your resume/CV and profile information (to the extent that you have not designated it as private) to an employer or recruiter who may be interested in candidates like you.

To the extent that you wish us to share your information and resume/CV with potential employers, recruiters, or staffing agencies (including, where you have submitted your resume/CV to the Resume Database or because you have applied to a Job Advertisement on a Getintojobs website), you consent to our sharing your resume/CV, together with any additional information you provide to us during the application process. This means that you give us a perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide license (and right to sub-license), of any rights, including intellectual property rights, in your resume/CV and any additional information you provide to us, to share or otherwise use such resume/CV and additional information as we reasonably require to fulfill the services we provide to you.

A. Job Applications in General

By applying to a Job Advertisement on the Services, you give us permission to store your information on the Services and to share your information (including your resume/CV), with the entity that posted the Job Advertisement.

You can choose how to submit your Job Application using the options offered through the Services. If you elect to apply through a third-party account, such as Facebook or LinkedIn.com, you will be asked to log-in to the applicable account, and the profile, resume and other information that you have provided as part of any of those accounts will then be provided to the entity that posted the applicable Job Advertisement.

Once you submit a Job Application, your resume and other applicable information will be shared with the entity that posted the Job Advertisement as long as any parameters selected by that entity are met, where applicable. You should therefore ensure that the information you provide is complete and accurate, and only contains information that you are comfortable sharing.

If you ask Getintojobs to submit a message to any employer or third party or if you apply for a job using the Services, you accept that Getintojobs does not guarantee that the recipient entity will receive, access, view, or respond to your requests or Job Applications, or that the transmission of data will be error-free. Any screener questions provided by the entity posting a Job Advertisement are entirely in the control of that entity and if you require alternate screener questions or application process, you must contact the applicable entity directly.

B. Applying to Job Advertisements on a Getintojobs Website

When you apply to a Job Advertisement on a Getintojobs website or through the app, if all parameters selected by the entity that posted the Job Advertisement are met, we will send the resume associated with your account (to the extent an account was created as described in Section 7.C. below).

If you have manually logged out of your account or if you have been automatically logged out of your account because of inaction or some other reason, we will ask you to input your email so we can verify your identity before we send the resume associated with your account. Once you receive the verification email and confirm your identity by following the instructions in the email, we will send out the resume associated with your account.

IMPORTANT: It is your responsibility to ensure that the resume associated with your account is always updated, current and accurate before you apply to a Job Advertisement or opt-in to the Resume Database, so an employer receives the most up-to-date information about you. In order to delete old resumes, edit your resume, or upload a new resume, please go to the Profile settings in your User account.

Additionally, although Getintojobs requests that companies maintain the confidentiality of the Job Applications and resumes/CVs they receive through the Services, Getintojobs cannot and does not guarantee that the information you provide will be held in confidence or properly secured by the applicable receipt.

C. Account Creation

In addition to your ability to manually create a Getintojobs account yourself, a Getintojobs account will automatically be created for you in the following circumstances, if you don’t already have an account:

(a) When you sign up for job alerts with Getintojobs; or

(b) When you apply to a Job Advertisement on a Getintojobs website, using, for example, the ‘Apply Now’ or ‘Quick Apply’ buttons.

When an account is automatically created for you, you will receive an email with your user name (which is usually your email address) and a link to reset your password. Whether or not you choose to reset your password, the account will exist under your email address and the resume associated with the action you took (e.g., applying for a job, signing-up for job alerts, etc.), will be connected with that account. So, before applying to a Job Advertisement, please ensure that your resume is up-to-date so that employers receive the most recent information about you.

D. Job Alerts

You can manually sign up to receive job alerts by email/or SMS. In addition to a manual sign up, if you apply to Job Advertisements on a Getintojobs website and/or create an account, you may agree to receive email job alerts based on the type of role you selected. You can sign up for job alerts via SMS in a number of ways including by entering your telephone number in the Mobile Alerts section of your User Account. You can edit or change the type of job alerts want to receive by accessing the Job Alerts tab in your User account. You may opt-out of job alerts by clicking on the unsubscribe link in your job alert email.

E. Resume Database

Getintojobs has a feature that permits job seekers to include their resume/CV and other profile information in a resume database (the “Resume Database”) to be stored on the Service.

Making Your Profile and Resume/CV Public: If you elect to make your resume/CV ‘public’ in your Account settings or during your account creation: (i) it will be added it to the Resume Database, (ii) your resume/CV and profile information (including your personal information, to the extent provided in your resume or profile) will be available to be viewed or downloaded by any persons or entities that have access rights to the Resume Database, (iii) your resume/CV will be visible in whole or in part via search results within the Resume Database, and (iv) your resume/CV and profile information will be visible in part to Clients with active Job Ads to invite or rate candidates to apply.

If you add your resume/CV to the Resume Database, then you are:

  • Consenting to Getintojobs matching words, skills, or certifications that are present or implied in your resume or other application materials to words, skills, or certifications present or implied in a Job Advertisement or an employer’s or recruiter’s search of terms, and if there are any matches, to present matching resumes/CVs to the applicable employer or recruiter and to send information to you about Job Advertisements that may be of interest to you.
  • Acknowledging that we may ‘parse’ the resume and other applicable information into another format to create a profile view and/or enable searchable text for a Company; the Company will also be able to see your resume in the form in which you originally submitted it to Getintojobs.

Keeping Your Profile and Resume/CV Private: If you elect to keep your resume/CV private, it will not be added to the Resume Database. If you had previously made your profile and resume/CV public, and wish to opt-out, you may do so at any time by adjusting the settings in the “About Me” page of your account. If you opt-out, we will remove your resume/CV from the Resume Database and disable visibility to search results as soon as reasonably practicable. However, if an entity has already accessed your resume/CV through the Resume Database or search results and copied or saved your resume, that entity will continue to have access to your resume/CV and all information you included in your resume/CV.

F. Interactions with Other Users; Scams; Confidentiality

You are solely responsible for your interactions with Users whom you contact or who contact you. Note: there are risks, including, but not limited to, the risk of physical harm, that may arise when dealing with strangers, including persons who may be acting under false pretenses. You should therefore use caution with regard to the information you elect to share as part of your User Profile or Job Application or resume/CV that. Only list the contact information that you are comfortable disclosing to Clients and other Users of the Services.

In addition to carefully reviewing this section and Section 2 above, you should conduct your own due diligence on potential employers and Job Advertisements that may be of interest to you. As mentioned in Section 2, Getintojobs does not authenticate Users or guarantee that a Job Advertisement is suitable, legitimate, or real.
