All NrgEdge trademarks, names and logos used on this site or mobile applications delivered via NrgEdge services are owned by NrgEdge (unless otherwise stated). No license is expressly impliedly granted within or as a result of your use of NrgEdge services or this site. Without prior permission from NrgEdge, you agree not to display or use in any manner, the NrgEdge trademarks, names and logo.

NrgEdge has created this Privacy Policy in order to describe its collection, use and disclosure of personal data you give to NrgEdge when you access or use NrgEdge’s online and/or mobile services and websites, and software provided by NrgEdge on or in connection with such services or websites (collectively, the “Site”). “NrgEdge” or “we” means NrgEdge Pte. Ltd.

This Privacy Policy covers only data that we collect through the Site, and not any other data collection or processing, including, without limitation, the data collection practices of any affiliate or other third party, including any third-party operators of web pages to which the Site links, and any information that we collect offline or through any websites, products, or services that do not display a direct link to this Privacy Policy. Occasionally, we may refer to this Privacy Policy in notices and consent requests related to special-purpose web pages, mobile applications, or other resources, for example, if we invite you to submit ideas to improve the Site; under such circumstances, this Privacy Policy applies to information collected by us through such special-purpose resources, as modified in the particular notice or consent request (e.g., with respect to the types of data collected or our uses or disclosures of such information) NrgEdge may amend this Privacy Policy at any time. Please review the “Last Updated” legend at the top of this page to determine when this Privacy Policy was last amended. Any changes to this Privacy Policy will become effective on the “Last Updated” date indicated above. By using the Site or providing information to us following such changes, you will have accepted the amended Privacy Policy. If NrgEdge is going to use Personal Information (as defined below) collected through the Site in a manner materially different from that stated at the time of collection, then NrgEdge will notify users via email and/or by posting a notice on NrgEdge’s Site for 30 days prior to such use or by other means as required by law.

1. Information Collected

When you create an NrgEdge account, request information, subscribe for a service, participate in a survey, post a rating or review, post a question or answer, post a resume, upload content or otherwise actively send us data on our Site, we collect such data including, but not limited to, your user name, password, first and last name, email address, telephone number (including mobile phone number), street address, gender, occupation, interests, messages you send to users, and any other data included in a submitted profile or resume. In connection with chargeable services, we will also collect payment information (e.g., credit card number and related verification information). If you use any automated phone screening product, NrgEdge will record and store your answers to an Employer’s screening questions and will forward your answers to the Employer. You consent to NrgEdge listening to and analyzing the recording in accordance with this Privacy Policy. In each such instance above, you will know what data we collect through the Site, because you actively submit it. In addition, as part of the standard operation of the Site, NrgEdge may automatically collect and analyze information from your computer or mobile device, including, but not limited to, your browser type, operating system, IP address and the domain name from which you accessed the Site, and if you are accessing our Site with your mobile device, the type of mobile device. In addition, we may automatically record and analyze actions taken on the Site including, but not limited to, date and times of use, clicks, page views, the amount of time you spend on each page, and search queries. NrgEdge reserves the right to match your IP address (or any other information) with other information about you in any way permitted by applicable law. NrgEdge will store this information on its equipment or the equipment of third parties that NrgEdge has a relationship with for that purpose. If you create an NrgEdge account, information may be collected under your account email address.

If you access or use the Site on your mobile telephone or other mobile device, including tablets, we collect mobile device identifiers, including MAC Address, and IP Address. NrgEdge may create and assign to your device an identifier that is similar to an account number. We may collect the name you have associated with your device, device type, telephone number, country, and any other information you choose to provide, such as user name, geo-location or e-mail address. We may also access your contacts to enable you to invite friends to join you in the Site. When a Job Seeker deletes an account, the Job Seeker will no longer have access to any of the data which we provided under that account name, including but not limited to, search history, job search preferences, saved jobs, jobs the Job Seeker has applied to, job alerts, resume, and any other data associated with the account. If the Job Seeker uses the same email address to set up a new account, this data will not become available to the Job Seeker again. NrgEdge reserves the right to keep any materials in a deleted account as necessary to preserve and protect its rights as allowed by law (for example, to preserve records of a dispute) or to comply with its obligations under local law (for example, to keep an email address). A deleted account does not mean that all of the data is expunged from the NrgEdge systems, although it will not be readily available under the Job Seeker’s original account name. When the Job Seeker presses the delete account button on the dashboard, NrgEdge will begin to process that instruction within 24 hours and will have completed the operation within 40 days. Employers may disable an account; however NrgEdge must preserve business records pertaining to that account to comply with its obligations under law.

2. Uses and Disclosures of Information

We may use any information collected pursuant to this Privacy Policy, including information that identifies you as a specific individual (“Personal Information”), for the purposes set forth in this Paragraph 2 and Paragraphs 3, 4 and 8 below. NrgEdge uses such information to provide our services and features to you, including to provide employer information to you, to measure and improve those services and features, and to provide you with customer support. For example, NrgEdge uses your previous search and browsing history (e.g., the jobs you click on) to determine relevant search results and provide you with recommended jobs. NrgEdge may also provide information collected pursuant to this Privacy Policy, including Personal Information, to employers that may be interested in contacting you. If you are located in the United States, NrgEdge may also share such information with third parties (including operators of third-party websites and/or social networking sites) in order to show you targeted advertisements and other content that has been customized for you. If you would like to opt-out of receiving such targeted advertisements, please send an email to opt-out @ NrgEdge .com (remove spaces when sending email).
NrgEdge may also use information collected pursuant to this Privacy Policy to prevent potentially illegal activities and activities that are detrimental to you or others. NrgEdge may investigate and disclose information from or about you or your use of NrgEdge if we have a good-faith belief that such investigation or disclosure (a) is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process (including subpoenas, search warrants, court orders) and law enforcement instructions and orders; (b) is helpful to prevent, investigate, or identify possible wrongdoing in connection with the use of the Site; or (c) may protect our rights, reputation, property, safety, or that of the public. We may use a variety of methods to detect and address anomalous activity and screen content to prevent abuse such as spam. These efforts may on occasion result in a temporary or permanent suspension or termination of some functions for some users. We provide email proxy and relay services to the users of our NrgEdge products, including: NrgEdge Career Passport, Company Page and Ads Programs. We monitor, review, store and analyze your content (including your resumes, cover letters, applications, messages, responses, offer letters and other materials) that you send, store or receive, including via automated means and otherwise, for data analysis, quality control, and to refine the Site or any other NrgEdge product or service (including to provide better search results and other listings for job seekers and employers, provide you with personally relevant product features, and to prevent fraud and reduce unwanted mail).
Any information shared by you with NrgEdge may be shared with or transferred to any NrgEdge affiliated entity, no matter where located, for the purpose of providing you services and improving the Site. By using the Site, you consent to this transfer and acknowledge that the services provided to you and the functionality of the Site could not be provided without such a transfer. If you do not wish your information to be transferred in this way you should not use this Site.
We may use other companies, including affiliates and third parties, to perform services in connection with our operations, and to improve the Site and our other products and services. In the course of providing these services, those companies may have access to Personal Information, and such Personal Information may be transferred to other countries. Those companies are contractually required to treat such Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Please also be aware that we may use third-party cloud service providers that provide hosting, data storage and other services pursuant to standard terms and conditions that may be non-negotiable; these service providers have informed us or the general public that they apply security measures they consider adequate for the protection of information within their system, or they have a general reputation for applying such measures. However, we will not be liable (to the fullest extent permitted by law) for any damages that may result from the misuse of any information, including Personal Information, by these companies. You may also use certain third party sites or services that you link to from NrgEdge’s Site. In such cases, all information you provide to a third party is provided to that third party and not to NrgEdge, and is subject to the third party’s privacy policy and terms of service. NrgEdge may use your IP address and mobile device information to help diagnose problems with NrgEdge’s service and to administer the Site. Your IP address and mobile device information may also be used to help identify you, your location, and your online profile and to gather broad demographic information (such as country of origin). NrgEdge may maintain (as permitted by applicable law) information collected from you pursuant to this Privacy Policy following any termination of your relationship with NrgEdgE. NrgEdge may also delete such information as permitted by applicable law. If you provide credit, debit or other payment card and related details to us in order to make a payment, NrgEdge will use such information only for the purpose of processing the payment. NrgEdge may also aggregate your data with other data, for the purposes set forth above.

3. Contact and Resume Information

When you give NrgEdge contact information (such as your name and email address) and demographic information, you agree that NrgEdge may utilize this information as set forth herein. You agree that NrgEdge may, as part of its services to you, communicate with you, or initiate communication with you on behalf of a third party, through your NrgEdge account or through other means such as email, telephone (including mobile phone), or postal mail, including through the use of contact information that you may provide to NrgEdge or that NrgEdge may otherwise obtain from third-party resources. If and to the extent permitted by applicable law, NrgEdge or its designated third-party partners may also use your contact information to (i) send you job alerts; (ii) create an account; and (iii) send you information about NrgEdge, including promotional materials. NrgEdge may use demographic and/or profile data to tailor your experience on the Site, show you content that NrgEdge thinks you may be interested in, and display content according to your preferences. Your information, including Personal Information, gets placed on the Site when you upload or edit a resume. To the extent you upload a resume or edit it, and subject to your Privacy Settings, you are making the resume, your name and other Personal Information that you place on your resume available to third parties who may be interested in you as an employee (and who may forward your resume and Personal Information to other third parties), to search engines, or to the general public by posting your Personal Information on the internet. You acknowledge that NrgEdge may determine whether the words of your resume or any other individuals’ resume match the words of certain job descriptions, and vice-versa, in order to improve the Site or any other NrgEdge product or service (including by displaying or otherwise making available potentially relevant job descriptions and resumes to job seekers and employers). If you post a public resume, this may be crawled by, and displayed through, search engines when someone searches for your name. This means that third parties can view the Personal Information contained in your resume and you may receive unsolicited contact from parties unaffiliated with NrgEdge and for whom NrgEdge has no responsibility. If you do not want your Personal Information posted on the Site, you should not upload it. You may opt-out of this feature on a going-forward basis by editing your Privacy Settings; however, NrgEdge does not warrant how often third-party search engines will update their caches, which may continue to contain your resume information. NrgEdge reserves the right to charge third parties a fee for accessing your information, including Personal Information, as part of NrgEdge’s services. At your direction, NrgEdge may also send your resume to third parties if you choose to apply for a job listing.

4. Additional Uses and Disclosures of Non-Personal Information

In addition to the other uses and disclosures of information set forth in this Privacy Policy, and notwithstanding anything in this Privacy Policy to the contrary, we may use and disclosure, for any purpose, any information that does not identify you as a specific individual (“Non-Personal Information”), except where we are required to do otherwise under applicable law. Such Non-Personal Information may include, for example and without limitation: MAC addresses and other device identifiers; IP addresses; pixel tags and similar technologies; physical location information; and demographic information, including gender, dates of birth, ZIP codes, etc. Non-Personal Information may also include Personal Information that has been aggregated or de-identified. If we combine any Non-Personal Information with Personal Information (such as combining your ZIP code with your name), then we will only use and disclose such combined information for the purposes described in this Paragraph 4 and Paragraphs 2, 3 and 8 of this Privacy Policy while it is so combined. If we are required to treat Non-Personal Information as Personal Information under applicable law, then we may use and disclose it for all the purposes for which we use and disclose Personal Information.

5. Security

NrgEdge seeks to use reasonable security measures to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the Personal Information under NrgEdge’s control. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. In addition, please note that emails, messages sent via your web browser, and other similar means of communication with other users, are not encrypted. We strongly advise you not to communicate any confidential or sensitive information through these means. Therefore, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its security. Please also be aware that we may use third-party cloud service providers that provide hosting, data storage and other services pursuant to standard terms and conditions that may be non-negotiable; these service providers have informed us or the general public that they apply security measures they consider adequate for the protection of information within their system, or they have a general reputation for applying such measures. However, we will not be liable (to the fullest extent permitted by law) for any damages that may result from the misuse of any information, including Personal Information, by these companies.

Residents of the European Economic Area and Switzerland have a right of access to their data. If you wish to access such data, please send a certified letter to the above address with a copy of your passport or national identity card (for identity verification purposes) and the same will be provided to you.

We do not share any information about your use of NrgEdge with those third parties. When third parties that we have integrated into NrgEdge sites (as described in the NrgEdge Cookie Policy) set or read their own third-party cookies, they may or may not respond to the DNT signal.

12. Opting Out

If you no longer want to receive promotional materials from us based upon your Personal Information, going forward, you may opt-out of receiving such marketing-related messages by sending an email to info @ nrgedge. net (remove spaces when sending email).

By using or accessing the Website, you are consenting to NrgEdge’s use of Cookies as follows: This policy helps to explain the occasions when and why cookies may be sent to visitors to the Website (referred to in this policy as “we”, “us” or “our”). “Cookies” are text-only pieces of information that a website transfers to an individual’s hard drive or other website-browsing equipment for record-keeping purposes. Cookies allow the Website to remember important information that will make your use of the site more convenient. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a randomly generated unique number or other value. Like most websites, we use cookies for a variety of purposes in order to improve your online experience, for analytics and for marketing, but specifically we use Cookies on the Website for the following purposes:

1. Analytical Purposes: We use Cookies to analyze user activity in order to improve the Website. For example, using Cookies we can look at aggregate patterns like the average number of job searches that users perform. We can use such analysis to gain insights about how to improve the functionality and user experience of the Website.

2. Your Preferences: We use Cookies to store certain user preferences on our Website. For example, we may store the recent searches you have performed in a Cookie so that we can allow you to easily repeat those searches when you return to our Website.

3. Marketing: We use Cookies from third-party partners such as Google for marketing purposes. These Cookies allow us to display Indeed promotional material to you on other sites you visit across the Internet.

4. Referral Tracking: We use Cookies to associate user activity with the third party website that referred the user to our Website, or to associate user activity that Indeed referred to a third party website. These third party partner websites receive credit for the activity of users they refer to our Website, or give Indeed credit for the activity of users referred to such third party websites. We do not share any personal information or information about individual user activities with these partner entities.

Session Cookies are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the Website.

Persistent Cookies remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie). When we use session cookies to track the total number of visitors to our Website, this is done on an anonymous aggregate basis (as cookies do not in themselves carry any personal data). We may also employ cookies so that we remember your computer when it is used to return to the Website to help customize your Indeed web experience. We may associate personal information with a cookie file in those instances. Use the options in your web browser if you do not wish to receive a cookie or if you wish to set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie. You can easily delete any cookies that have been installed in the cookie folder of your browser.
