All references to Job Seeker and Employer are defined as provided for in the Indeed Terms of Service Introduction. This section determines which Indeed entity acts as the controller of your Personal Data (as defined in section 1.2) provided to, or collected by or for, or processed in connection with our Site.

With respect to Job Seekers, for the purposes of this Privacy Policy, “Indeed” or “we” means Indeed, Inc. if you are a Job Seeker located in the United States, or Indeed Ireland Operations Limited if you are a Job Seeker located outside of the United States.

2.1 Information You Provide to Indeed

– From Your Account

We collect data from you when you create an Indeed account, request information, subscribe for a service, participate in a survey, post a rating or review, post a question or answer, post a resume, complete an Indeed Assessment, upload content or otherwise actively send us data on our Site. This may include, but is 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, including but not limited to application materials and answers to screener questions submitted to Employers through Indeed and answers you give to any questionnaires sent to you. This information may be associated with your profile. You may provide your specific location data when you provide it yourself on the Indeed Apps to help you find more relevant Job Listings (including from the location service on your mobile device when you grant permission to an Indeed App), or when you submit a photo to Job Spotter that includes the provision of the location data of where the photo was taken. Indeed seeks your consent at the time of such provision, and such processing will only be performed where consent is secured.

In addition, as part of the standard operation of the Site, Indeed may collect and analyze information from your computer or mobile device and actions taken on the Site, including, but not limited to, your resume, your searches on Indeed, the titles of jobs you search, click on or apply to, where those jobs are located, salary interest or experience, the general salary range or experience level of the jobs you view (where indicated), your activity time on the Site and each page, page views, clicks, taps, session activity, browser type, operating system, type of device, MAC address, IP address and the domain name from which you accessed the Site.

– When Using Automated Phone Screening

If you use any automated phone screening product, Indeed will record and store your answers to an Employer’s screening questions and will forward your answers to the Employer. Where you wish to use such a product, you will agree in advance to Indeed listening to and analyzing the recording in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

– When Providing Employer Information

If you are an Employer, Indeed may request that you provide certain Personal Data to Indeed in order to verify your account. This information may include, but may not be limited to, your Federal Employer Identification Number (EIN), Business Registration information, or a utility bill, the name and email address of an Employer representative.

This information will be used for internal purposes only, subject to any request by law enforcement or a court order. In connection with chargeable services, we will also collect payment information (e.g., the last four digits of credit card numbers and related verification information). Please note that Indeed only has access to the last four digits of Employer credit card numbers, and does not store full credit card numbers.
