Privacy Policy

The following information discloses our privacy practices for gathering, storing, and using your personal data. We encourage you to review this information so that you may understand and consent to how we may collect, use, and share your personal information. Unless you provide sufficient personal information, we may be unable to assist you with your staffing or employment requirements.

Personal Data We May Collect

iHobnob’s objective in collecting your personal data is to provide you with quality personalized service. By knowing more about you, iHobnob is able to deliver a quality job search service to you.

In general, personal information is requested when you register with iHobnob to look for employment or to search for a candidate to fill a job opening. We ask applicants for their names, addresses, and other personal information such as work experience, education, and skills. iHobnob recommends that you do not disclose sensitive personal characteristics (e.g., gender.) on the initial resume or other information you submit to us. The amount of personal information you are required to supply will normally be limited to only that which is necessary to supply our services to you.  If you provide additional information that we have not requested, it may result in the rejection of your profile. 

Job Seekers: When you sign up for our job-search services through the iHobnob Job Email Alert, we may ask you for your name, e-mail address, or other personal information such as work experience, education, and skills.

The iHobnob Job Email Alert allows Web Site visitors to create a job-search profile. The profile acts as an intelligent agent to identify those jobs in our database that match your criteria. When a matching job becomes available, our Job Email Alert system will usually notify you. These e-mail notifications travel over the Internet via nonsecure networks.

Customers: Customers may create a company profile that is viewable by the general public. The company profile is meant to serve as a promotional tool for your company. 

Cookies and Web Beacons

To help us provide better service, we sometimes collect anonymous information from visits to our sites through the use of "web beacons." These do not access your personal information, but rather allow iHobnob to log users who have visited our Web sites. This anonymous information is sometimes known as "click stream data." iHobnob or its vendors may use this data to analyze trends and statistics to help us provide better customer service. If you do not want your transaction details used in this manner, see the paragraph below on cookies.

iHobnob 's Web site uses "cookies" to help personalize the online experience. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about that user. They also allow us to identify those computers when they return to a site. You can set your browser to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the option of whether to accept it. You can also set your browser to turn off cookies. If you do so, however, areas of the iHobnob site may not function properly.

Sharing Data

We may send the personal data of our applicants to iHobnob customers and/or agents who are acting on our behalf to provide you an employment opportunity.

We may also send your personal data to marketing companies who will then contact you to determine your feedback and satisfaction with our services. These companies may also send you information on our services. 

iHobnob may also collect and report demographic data, (e.g. what percentage of our employees are college graduates) to customers, marketing companies, or as required by law. This information is used and analyzed at an aggregate level to help us understand trends and more precisely determine how to improve our services to you.

iHobnob provides individuals with reasonable access to the personal information they have provided so that they can review and correct this information.

At this site, you may access and change your own personal data by going to the My Account page, entering your user name and password in the supplied fields, and edit your information.  There are no fees associated with accessing or updating the personal data previously provided by you.

Job Posting Payment Security

When you place an order online at iHobnob, your credit card information is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") protocol. SSL makes it difficult for your credit card information to be intercepted or stolen while being transmitted. iHobnob uses a service company to process its credit card transactions.

iHobnob has employed reasonable means to try to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not overcome those protections or use your personal information for improper purposes, and we are not responsible if that should happen.
