2.1 Information You Provide to Cannabis Equity Employment

– From Your Account

We collect data from you when you create an account, request information, subscribe for a service, participate in a survey, post a rating or review, post a question or answer, upload or build a resume, complete an Cannabis Equity Employment Assessment, update your job preferences, upload content, or otherwise actively send us data on our Site.

All of this information may be associated with your Cannabis Equity Employment account.

You may provide your specific location data when you provide it yourself on the Cannabis Equity Employment Apps (as defined in the Cannabis Equity Employment Terms of Service Introduction) to help you find more relevant Job Listings. Cannabis Equity Employment seeks your consent at the time of such provision, and such processing will only be performed where consent is secured. Some location data the Cannabis Equity Employment Apps collect is linked to your account (for example, “coarse” location data collected by an iOS app). Other location data the Cannabis Equity Employment Apps collect is not linked to your account (for example, “precise” location data collected by an iOS app) but is still used by Cannabis Equity Employment.

If you create an Cannabis Equity Employment account, Cannabis Equity Employment may also create and assign to your device an identifier that is similar to an account number. We may collect the name you have associated with your device, device type, telephone number, country, and any other information you choose to provide, such as username, email address, or zip code. For example, while using a mobile device to access Cannabis Equity Employment, Cannabis Equity Employment may provide a Job Seeker with relevant Job Listings that are located within the same zip code as where this activity is taking place.

– Through Your Activity on the Site

In addition, as part of the standard and necessary operation of the Site, Cannabis Equity Employment may collect, analyze, process, store, and record in real-time and analyze any and all of your activity on, interaction with, and communications on or through the Site, including, but not limited to, by collecting, analyzing, processing, storing, and recording the areas of the Site you visit (such as specific URLs), whether and where you click, scroll, hover-over, mouseover, or otherwise interact with or communicate with or through our Site, and when and for how long each such activity occurred. This also may include Cannabis Equity Employment collecting, analyzing, processing, storing, and recording information from and about your computer or mobile device and your actions taken on the Site, including, but not limited to, Your Resume, your searches, the titles of jobs you search, click on or apply to, where those jobs are located, your salary interest or experience, the general salary range or experience level of the jobs you view (where indicated), the Job Listings you apply to, the date, time and type of your activity on the Site such as how often you update Your Resume or look for jobs, session activity, browser type, operating system, type of device, mobile device advertising identifier, MAC address, IP address, and any of your other behavior or actions on, interaction with, or communications with or through the Site. The Site cannot work as Cannabis Equity Employment intends it to work unless Cannabis Equity Employment undertakes such activities. If you do not want your actions to be collected, processed, analyzed, or recorded this way, do not use the Site.

For Employers, this may also include actions taken with regard to a Job Listing or to Job Seeker’s resume or application, such as pausing or closing a Job Listing, opening, viewing or responding to a resume or application, or making a decision with regard to a resume, application or Job Listing.

– Through Your Activity on Cannabis Equity Employment Hire

Employers may be contacted to take advantage of our Cannabis Equity Employment Hire service, in which case you may provide Cannabis Equity Employment with additional information about hiring needs. This allows Cannabis Equity Employment to determine whether or not our Hire product is suitable for an Employer’s needs. When Job Seekers apply for a job recommended to them by Cannabis Equity Employment Hire, Cannabis Equity Employment facilitates certain aspects of the recruitment process including, for example, negotiations between the Job Seeker and the Employer, as applicable. As such, we collect and process any information submitted to Cannabis Equity Employment through this process, including but not limited to any queries a Job Seeker may have about the job or interview, information about progression through the recruitment process and information relating to salary.

– When Using Automated Phone Screening

If you use any automated phone screening product, Cannabis Equity Employment will record and store your answers to an Employer’s screening questions and will forward your answers to the Employer. Where you wish to use such a product, you will agree in advance to Cannabis Equity Employment listening to and analyzing the recording in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

– When Providing Employer Information

If you are an Employer, we may request that you provide certain information in order to verify your account. This information may include, but may not be limited to, your Federal Employer Identification Number (EIN), Business Registration information, or a utility bill, the name and email address of an Employer representative. This information will be used for internal purposes only, subject to any request by law enforcement or a court order.

As an Employer you may choose to enhance certain user-provided content on Cannabis Equity Employment (for example your hosted or claimed job posts, among other user-provided content) with rich media such as photos and videos. This content may be uploaded directly to Cannabis Equity Employment, or it may be imported from other third-party sources such as social media accounts or video sharing platforms. Rich media content imported in this manner is stored by Cannabis Equity Employment with your permission, and you may remove such content at any time. Please note removing the media from the third-party site (for example, Facebook) will not affect its display on your Cannabis Equity Employment post. This means that media imported from your social media accounts to Cannabis Equity Employment will remain on Cannabis Equity Employment until you remove it from our platforms directly.

– When Using Chargeable Services

In connection with chargeable services, we will also collect payment information (e.g., the last four digits of credit, debit, or other payment card numbers and related verification information). Please note that Cannabis Equity Employment only has access to the last four digits of credit, debit, or other payment card numbers, and does not store full card numbers or related card security codes.

– When Voluntarily Providing Demographic Information

In certain markets users can, entirely at their own choice, provide their demographic information including age, race & ethnicity, gender, disability, arrest or conviction record, and LGBTQ+ community membership to Cannabis Equity Employment for specific purpose(s) such as evaluating ‘fairness’ in our offerings which includes testing for unfair bias. All collection is performed in accordance with data protection law in the applicable market. A commitment to fairness is core to Cannabis Equity Employment’s mission. The provision of this information is entirely voluntary and will not be used in any determination of your job application. The data provided will not be displayed on your Cannabis Equity Employment Profile. Cannabis Equity Employment may share aggregate data (data grouped together with personal identifiers removed) to employers to show them, for example, when 45% of total applicants identify as male or when 10% of total applicants identify as Hispanic or Latinx. The data you provide is based on your consent at the time the information is taken. If you choose to provide your demographic information, you can complete as many of the data fields as you like when presented with an input form (you can choose ‘prefer not to say’ for any of the fields that you don’t want to complete). You can easily request to view, edit, or delete your demographic information at any time. Please see our Demographic FAQ page for additional information.

Please note that some employers are required by law to ask each job applicant to provide their Demographic Information on a voluntary basis, and you may see these questions after applying to jobs on Cannabis Equity Employment. This is a separate process to Cannabis Equity Employment’s.

– When Voluntarily Providing Demographic Information

When you share information with Cannabis Equity Employment, or update information previously provided to Cannabis Equity Employment, including preferences such as making your resume on Cannabis Equity Employment or information shared in the “About Me” section of your profile “public” or “private,” it may take us a few days to reflect these changes on the Site. From the time you make these changes to the time we reflect them on our Site, new data may not appear and previously provided data may continue to show. As a result, information you no longer choose to share publicly on our Site may continue to be visible in our Resume Search product and elsewhere on our Site to Employers and other users.

2.2 Information Collected When You Apply for Jobs or Access Cannabis Equity Employment from Some Third-Party Websites

– Our Mobile Software

Cannabis Equity Employment may also collect information about third-party websites you visit through our mobile software. This could include information about Job Listings, notes or application statuses that you submit, save, or update, or data regarding how you engage with websites or other actions you take on such websites, including URLs of websites you visit. We may also suggest information from your Cannabis Equity Employment Profile to include in applications you submit on third-party sites and see whether you make changes to these suggestions but not the changes themselves. We do this in order to allow a Job Seeker to keep a record of particular Job Listings of interest, to detect a job application on a third-party site to give a Job Seeker the option to auto-fill parts of the form using Cannabis Equity Employment Resume, or to confirm an application.

– When You Apply to Jobs on Some Third-Party Websites

When you apply for a job on certain third-party websites, Cannabis Equity Employment may also receive information about the status of your job application and the decisions taken by the Employer such as whether the application reached the interview stage and whether a job offer was accepted or rejected. This information helps Cannabis Equity Employment further understand the effectiveness of our Site and its features. Cannabis Equity Employment’s use of this information is detailed in section 4 of this Privacy Policy.

– When You Interact with Sponsored Jobs

Cannabis Equity Employment provides Employers with tools which help them manage, track and optimize the performance of their advertising across a multitude of job advertising sites and platforms in real-time (“Sponsored Jobs”). When you click on a Job Listing powered by Sponsored Jobs, and when you start and complete a job application generated by Sponsored Jobs on an Employer’s website or a website operated by an Employer’s applicant tracking system, Cannabis Equity Employment may collect certain information about you and any actions taken by you during your visit using automated means, such as cookies and web beacons. The information collected includes, for example, information about your device, Job Listings viewed/clicked, job applications started and completed, referring URLs and dates and times of site visits.

– When you Communicate with Cannabis Equity Employment through Third-Party Websites

You may also have the ability to interact with Cannabis Equity Employment through third-party messaging services, apps and websites, such as Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp. When you interact with Cannabis Equity Employment through these third-party services, apps, and websites, you acknowledge that your use of such services may be subject to additional terms provided by the third parties that operate them, and that such third parties may have access to your communications with Cannabis Equity Employment, including application data you submit to Cannabis Equity Employment while you are on such platforms.


2.3 Any Other Personal Data Cannabis Equity Employment May Receive from Third Parties

Any Personal Data that Cannabis Equity Employment may obtain from other third-party sources, including data from sponsored advertisements that we have on third-party sites, will be processed by Cannabis Equity Employment in accordance with this Privacy Policy and all applicable laws.

2.4 Storage of Your Information

Cannabis Equity Employment stores your Personal Data until it is no longer necessary to provide our services or until you ask us to delete your Personal Data. As one example, if an Employer deletes a job application in their candidate dashboard on Cannabis Equity Employment, Cannabis Equity Employment may delete information associated with that application. As another example, after an application has been delivered to an Employer, Cannabis Equity Employment may retain a copy of that application for a limited time and then delete the copy. We are also required to retain certain information in order to comply with local laws.

Cannabis Equity Employment may also store the information detailed in this section 2 of the Privacy Policy on its equipment or the equipment of third parties that Cannabis Equity Employment has a relationship with. Such storage services will be governed by appropriate protections, as required by applicable rules.

2.5 What Personal Data is Required

Personal Data may be required in order to provide particular Cannabis Equity Employment services or features to you. If Personal Data is required, it will be indicated at the time of collection. If Personal Data is required and you choose not to provide it, then the particular feature or service may not be available to you.

2.6 The Legal Basis on Which Cannabis Equity Employment Collects Your Personal Data

Cannabis Equity Employment collects and processes your Personal Data on the basis of different legal grounds, depending on the nature of the Personal Data being provided and the type of processing involved.

– Performance of a Contract

Some of the Personal Data processed by Cannabis Equity Employment is performed on the basis that it is necessary for the performance of our agreement with you, or in order to take steps at the request of the user prior to entering such an agreement. An example of this would be where Cannabis Equity Employment sends a Job Seeker’s application to an Employer.

– Legitimate Interest

A second ground relied upon by Cannabis Equity Employment for other types of processing of your Personal Data is that it is necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests pursued by Cannabis Equity Employment or an Employer. Examples of such legitimate interests will include where Cannabis Equity Employment sends you marketing about our products and services, where we believe you have a reasonable expectation that we will perform a particular type of processing on your behalf, where such processing is strictly necessary for fraud detection and prevention, or where we share your Personal Data with Cannabis Equity Employment affiliates as detailed in section 4.14 below. Cannabis Equity Employment will only rely on such a ground where an assessment has been performed balancing the interests and rights involved and the necessity of the processing in order to provide our services, products and features to you.

– Compliance with a Legal Obligation

A third ground relied upon for certain types of processing is that it is necessary in order to allow Cannabis Equity Employment to comply with a legal obligation. An example of this would be where Cannabis Equity Employment is required to retain business records for fixed periods of time in order to comply with local legal requirements.

– Consent

Finally, in certain limited situations, Cannabis Equity Employment relies on your consent in order to process your Personal Data. Where Cannabis Equity Employment requires your consent, we seek it at the time of provision, and the processing will only be performed where consent is secured. For example, your consent will be sought in certain instances where you initiate a marketing message such as a Job Alert with Cannabis Equity Employment (detailed in section 4 of this Privacy Policy). You can withdraw your consent, as detailed in section 9 of this Privacy Policy where applicable, or by sending an email to privacy-dept @ Cannabis Equity (remove spaces when sending email).
