BountyJobs Inc. (“BountyJobs”) is the operator of the Website. This Policy describes the type of information BountyJobs collects from visitors to the Website, what we do with that information, and how visitors can update and control the use of information provided on the Website. As used in this Policy, “Personally Identifiable Information” or “Personal Information” refers to any information that you provide to us that can be used to identify you or contact you directly. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ABIDE BY THIS POLICY, YOU MAY NOT USE THE WEBSITE.


Certain visitors to BountyJobs’ website choose to interact with BountyJobs in ways that require BountyJobs and others to know a little bit more about them through personally identifiable information. The amount and type of information that BountyJobs gathers depends on the nature of the interaction as described below.

In each case, BountyJobs collects and uses the personally identifiable information described below only for the purpose of providing the Website and associated services. BountyJobs does not disclose any such personally identifiable information other than as described below.

Visitors: Those who visit our public-facing Website without having entered into a service agreement and created an account (“Visitors”) may choose to request additional information from us. Visitors must then supply personal information such as their name, company name, email address, and phone number. This information is used for the purposes of contacting the Visitor and for ongoing marketing communications to the Visitor.

Employers: Those wishing to post jobs on the Website (“Employers”) must supply personal information such as their name, company name, address, industry, company website, company size, company description, telephone number, fax number, email address, and financial information as necessary for payment and all other financial transactions with BountyJobs contemplated by the Terms of Use entered into between the Employer and BountyJobs. BountyJobs will not share this information with any third parties with the exception of Headhunters who may be provided access to identifying information in the course of working with you on the Website and our Service Providers as described below.

Headhunters: BountyJobs may conduct background checks on individuals wishing to apply to BountyJobs to submit resumes of candidates (“Candidates”) to Employers on the Website (“Headhunter Applicants”). If you are a Headhunter Applicant, BountyJobs may decide to conduct a background check on you, in which case we may use the information that we collect about you only in connection with the evaluation of your application. In addition, we may ask you to provide BountyJobs with additional information and reasonable cooperation to complete the evaluation of your application.

Those Headhunter Applicants who are accepted by BountyJobs and become eligible to submit Candidates to Employers on the Website (“Headhunter”), will be required to provide additional information, such as name, company name, address, telephone number, fax number, email address, company website, company description, personal description, password, credit card information (including name, number, expiration date, and API number), and financial information as necessary for payments and all other financial transactions with BountyJobs contemplated by the Terms of Use entered into between the Headhunter and BountyJobs. BountyJobs will not share this information with any third parties with the exception of Employers who may be provided access to identifying information in the course of working with you on the Website and our Service Providers as described below.

Candidates: If you are a Candidate, a Headhunter will collect your name and email address along with your resume and any personally identifiable information contained therein and submit it to BountyJobs for data processing. We will only share your name and resume with an Employer when directed to do so by the Headhunter who has submitted you for consideration and is the data controller of your information. If you are hired through the Website, Employer and Headhunter will provide us with your start date and base annual salary for the purpose of invoicing the Employer and calculating the fee payable to the Headhunter. Headhunter or Employer may provide additional information about you of which we are not aware in the course of messaging through the Website as we do not monitor these messages.

BountyJobs disclaims any ownership in Candidate resumes entered into the BountyJobs system.


Please remember that if you post any of your personal information in public areas of the Website, such as in blogs or email inboxes, such information may be collected and used by other users over whom BountyJobs has no control. BountyJobs is not responsible for the use made by third parties of information you post or otherwise make available in public areas of the Website.


Log Data: Like most website operators, BountyJobs collects computer-generated information of the sort that Web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the user’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request (collectively, “Log Data”). BountyJobs’ purpose in collecting Log Data is to better understand how BountyJobs’ visitors use the Website, so that we can, among other things, improve and enhance the Website and tailor it to our users’ needs and preferences. From time to time, BountyJobs may release this information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in usage of the Website. Finally, we may also use a person’s IP address to fight spam, malware, and identity theft or for any other purpose related to your usage of the Website.

In addition, note that certain third parties that we do business with (for example, advertisers) may use cookies on our Website; however, we have no access to or control over these cookies once we have given permission for them to set cookies for advertising. This type of cookie usage only applies to the data collected from Visitors to our public-facing website.
