JobHike and CCPA

We Take Your Privacy Seriously and are in Full Compliance With CCPA.

The CCPA concerns Californian residents regarding their personal information and privacy rights.

Effective January 1, 2020, pursuant to the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), California residents have certain rights in relation to their personal information, subject to limited exceptions. The new law empowers individual privacy by introducing new rights over their personal information such as the right to access, deletion, and opt-out of the sale of their information. To learn more about your rights under the CCPA, visit the California Attorney General’s website here.

JobHike only collects, uses, discloses, and sells your business-specific information such as your professional email address and public LinkedIn profile. JobHike does not collect or use any sensitive information such as your Social Security Number or health records and collects personal information exclusively from publicly available sources. Our processing activities have little to no impact on your privacy or your fundamental rights or your freedoms. We only collect and process the following types of personal information, your first name, last name, employer, work email address, work phone number, job title and public social link.

While we collect certain location-related information related to individuals, it is almost an impossible task to verify if this is where a person is a resident of or if it is the location where they work. JobHike will aim to assume and treat any such data as related to Californian residents.  Any Californian residents who wish to opt-out of JobHike services may do so here.

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) has brought many changes to the way businesses collect, use, sell and disclose personal data. It restored control over personal data to individuals by imposing various obligations on businesses. Just as GDPR, the CCPA also empowers individual privacy by providing new rights. These rights can be properly exercised only if an individual is sufficiently informed about the handling of their data by relevant businesses.

To comply with both the GDPR and the CCPA, JobHike provides a Privacy Policy and Privacy Statement to individuals. Considering the differences between these two laws, we have a separate CCPA Privacy Notice that concerns Californian residents.
