1. The Information We Collect And Store
We may collect and store the following information when running the Service:
Information You Provide. The purpose of the Service is to help you manage applicant and candidate data. To do that, you will provide your email, full name, and company information such as the name of your office and street address.
You may also ask us to import your contacts by giving us access to your Third-Party Services or to use your social networking information if you give us access to your account on social network connection services (for example, LinkedIn). You may also provide additional information in the setup and ongoing use of the Service such as job postings. We may also receive Personal Information (for example, your email address) through other users, for example if they have tried to share something with you or tried to refer Brokerkit to you. When you invite others to join Brokerkit by using our invite page, we send them a one-time email for that referral.
Candidate data. We collect and store the information and data (usually about employee applicants or job candidates) you upload, download, or access with the Service (“Files”). If you add data to your Brokerkit account that you or another user previously uploaded, we may associate all or a portion of the previous file with your account rather than storing a duplicate.
Log Data. When you use the Service, we automatically record information from your Device, its software, and your activity using the Services (“Log Data”). This may include the Device’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, the web page visited before you came to our website, information you search for on our website, locale preferences, identification numbers associated with your Devices, your mobile carrier, date and time stamps associated with transactions, system configuration information, metadata concerning your Files, and other interactions with the Service.
Cookies. We also use “cookies” to collect information and improve our Services. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your Device. We may use “persistent cookies” to save your registration ID and login password for future logins to the Service. We may use “session ID cookies” to enable certain features of the Service, to better understand how you interact with the Service and to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on the Service. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all aspects of the Service.
2. How We Use Personal Information
Personal Information. In the course of using the Service, we may collect personal information that can be used to contact or identify you (“Personal Information”). Personal Information is or may be used: (i) to provide and improve our Service, (ii) to administer your use of the Service, (iii) to better understand your needs and interests, (iv) to personalize and improve your experience, and (v) to provide or offer software updates and product announcements.
Geo-Location Information. Some Devices allow applications to access real-time location-based information (for example, GPS). Some photos and videos you place in Brokerkit may contain recorded location information. We may use this information to optimize your experience. If you do not wish to share files embedded with your geo-location information with us, please do not upload them. If you don’t want to store location data in your photos or videos, please consult the documentation for your camera to turn off that feature. Also, some of the information we collect from a Device, for example IP address, can sometimes be used to approximate a Device’s location.
Analytics. We also collect some information (ourselves or using third party services) using logging and cookies, such as IP address, which can sometimes be correlated with Personal Information. We use this information for the above purposes and to monitor and analyze use of the Service, for the Service’s technical administration, to increase our Service’s functionality and user-friendliness, and to verify users have the authorization needed for the Service to process their requests. As of the date this policy went into effect, we use Google Analytics, Amplitude, Hotjar, and Segment.

Non-private or Non-Personal Information. We may disclose your non-private, aggregated, or otherwise non-personal information, such as usage statistics of our Service, and use this information for both commercial and non-commercial purposes.
We allow advertisers to choose the demographic information of users who will see their advertisements and you agree that we may use any of the information we have collected from you (including, without limitation, information you may have decided not to show to other users) to select or allow the advertiser to select the appropriate audience for those advertisements. For example, we may allow an advertiser to target an ad to you based on your query history.

The security of your information is important to us. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.
