IEEE Job Site Privacy Statement
1. Types of Information Collected
In connection with your use of the IEEE Job Site Service (the "IEEE Job Site Service"), we ask for and may collect information from and about you in different ways and at different points on the IEEE Job Site Service. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you). First, in order to participate in the IEEE Job Site Service, you must join the IEEE. When you join the IEEE, the IEEE collects certain personally identifiable information, including your name, address (physical and email), and general educational and professional background ("Member Information"). If you have instructed the IEEE to not include your Member Information in its mailing lists or membership directory, your opt-out will not apply to sharing within the IEEE Job Site Service if you sign up for the service. Second, to begin using the IEEE Job Site Service, you will be asked to register by opening a personal user account. Through the online registration form certain information, including job type, salary range and desired location of employment ("Registration Information") is collected. An asterisk indicates which information is mandatory in order to complete the registration process. Third, if you choose to submit information for a particular job posting, you may be asked to complete a more extensive employer-specific questionnaire (an "Employer Questionnaire") to provide additional information to fine-tune your qualifications and candidacy for that specific job posting ("Candidacy Information"). Your Membership Information, Registration Information and Candidacy Information are collectively referred to below as your "Employment Information."
2. Use of Information
By the Jobseeker
Once you have activated your IEEE Job Site personal user account, the IEEE submits your Registration Information to the IEEE Job Site profiling engine to attempt to match your information with available job postings. Upon a match of your Registration Information with a job posting, the IEEE will notify you via email if you have elected to receive such notifications. Upon reviewing a job posting, your Employment Information will be forwarded to that potential employer only if you click on the "Submit" button, thereby instructing the IEEE to forward the Employment Information to the potential employer.
By the Potential Employer
The IEEE has granted potential employers the ability to run searches through the IEEE Job Site profiling engine to match their job postings with jobseekers’ Registration Information. No personally identifiable information is released to these potential employers during these searches, and potential employers are not able to contact jobseekers through this portion of the IEEE Job Site Service. Notwithstanding the foregoing , if you instruct us to share your Employment Information with a potential employer, the potential employer will have access to your Employment Information and has agreed to treat that information as confidential and to not disclose it to any third party without your prior written consent.
The IEEE has contracted with a third party Application Service Provider (ASP) to implement and host the IEEE Job Site Service. Information collected from you and potential employers will be stored on the ASP’s server and processed through its profiling engine. The ASP is not permitted to disclose your personally identifiable information to any third party without your consent.
We use "cookies" to help personalize and maximize your online experience and time online. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard drive by a Web page server. 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.
You may have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline all cookies if you prefer. Alternatively, you may be able to modify your browser setting to notify you each time a cookie is tendered and permit you to accept or decline cookies on an individual basis. If you choose to decline cookies, however, that may hinder performance and negatively impact your experience on the IEEE Job Site Service.
Third-party cookies and functions
The IEEE Job Site Service and the ASP may use a tracking technique that employs embedded URLs to allow use of the site without cookies. Embedded URLs allow limited information to follow you as you navigate the site, but is not associated with personal information and is not used beyond the session.
The IEEE Job Site Service and the ASP may use embedded pixel technologies on selected pages for the purposes of identifying unique user visits to the Web sites, as opposed to aggregate hits, and to identify the pages viewed. We may also use embedded pixel technologies to determine whether the recipient of an e-mail has opened a particular message. The information provided by these technologies may be re-associated with personal information by the IEEE Job Site Service.
4. Disclosure of Information
Your Employment Information is released only when you choose to do so, and your information is only released to the potential employer who posted the job to which you are responding. Once your Employment Information has been forwarded to a potential employer, all correspondences are directly between you and that potential employer. Employers have agreed to not disclose your Employment Information to third parties.
As a user of the IEEE Job Site Service, you may restrict distribution of your Employment Information by indicating such restrictions in your account.
As indicated above, you will be informed at each collection point what information is required and what information is optional. If the IEEE Job Site Service matches your Registration Information with a particular job posting, you will be notified by email only if you have chosen to receive such notifications. You may opt out of receiving email notifications at any time.
You can access your Employment Information by logging into your account by using your name and password at http://www.ieee.org/jobs. Once there, you can modify and delete any part of your Employment Information.
