Pinpoint Privacy Policy

Updated: 17th June 2022

We at Pinpoint are committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy applies to both pinpointhq.com (our Website) and our Subscription Service (the Subscription Service). This Privacy Policy governs our data collection, processing and usage practices. It also describes your choices regarding use, access and correction of your Personal Information. If you do not agree with the data practices described in this Privacy Policy, you should not use the Website or the Subscription Service.
Pinpoint may update this Privacy Policy at any time. The updated version will appear on our Website.

1.

Use of the subscription service by Pinpoint and our customers.

The Pinpoint Subscription Service

Our online Subscription Service allows any company that uses it (our Customers and Pinpoint itself) to advertise job vacancies, receive applications for jobs, process applications and manage candidates through the hiring process. The information added to the Subscription Service, either by site visitors providing their information or when a Subscription Service user adds the information, is stored and managed on our service providers’ servers. This information is then used to contact visitors about their interest in the company’s job vacancy and interact with the company.

Use by Pinpoint

We use our own Subscription Service to advertise and recruit for our own job vacancies. Information that we collect and manage using the Subscription Service for our own recruitment is used, disclosed and protected according to this Privacy Policy.

Use by Our Customers

Our Customers use the Subscription Service to recruit for job vacancies and are the controllers of the Personal Information they collect through the Subscription Services. Our Customers manage the Personal Information they collect via the Subscription Service in accordance with their own Privacy Policy.

Pinpoint collects information under the direction of its Customers, and has no direct relationship with the individuals whose Personal Information it processes. If you are an applicant to one of our Customers, you should contact that Customer directly with any questions you may have regarding its privacy policies or data processing practices.
