Information collected when you interact with our technology

JobTarget builds technology that is designed to provide analytical data and statistics to employers that post recruitment advertisements through JobTarget's distribution channels. JobTarget acts as an agent of the employer by collecting user personal and non-personal information during the job application process. That means you may interact indirectly with JobTarget technology when you apply for a job online, for example.

JobTarget may collect, retain, use and pass along data and statistics to our customers and partners. Our technology collects information from visitors, including job seekers, employers, recruiters, and advertising agencies to track the performance of job postings delivered through our platform, among other things.

Additionally, JobTarget develops technology to improve the job search and application processes. Our technology is often imbedded in third party systems, including Applicant Tracking Systems, job boards, job search sites, and other technologies that facilitate job search and recruitment. If you are NOT an existing JobTarget user, JobTarget may choose to collect data and save it in a user profile which does not have a specific user identity, although the identity of the user may become known to JobTarget at a future date. If you have interacted with and/or registered with JobTarget in the past, we may collect further information through these systems, as you use these third-party services.

Information we obtain from third-parties

In some cases, we receive information from third-party partners or we obtain it thru data clearinghouses or other third-party data sources.
