Updated and effective as of 28th August 2019
When we provide the Services, we collect and receive information in several different ways. In many cases, you choose what information to provide, although some information is required for us to provide you the Services.
We collect information from you when you create MEDVOCATION account, participate in a job seeking, post a question or answer to Employer/ Recruiter, post a resume, upload content or otherwise actively send us data on our Application. This may include, but is not limited to, your first and last name, email addresses, mobile phone numbers, residential address, gender, age, and any other data included in ‘My Profile’section or resume, including but not limited to application materials and answers to screener questions submitted to Employers through MV and answers you give to any questionnaires sent to you. This information may be associated with your MV’s Profile.
When the Job Application is sent by Job seeker, the Job seeker's Personal Data, together with the attached files, is sent to the Employer Panel. The Employer/ Recruiter becomes the administrator of the Job seeker's Personal Data.
You may provide your specific location data when you provide it yourself on the MV Apps to help you find more relevant Job Listings (including from the location service on your mobile device when you grant permission to MEDVOCATION Application), or when you submit a photo that includes the provision of the location data of where the photo was taken. MV seeks your consent at the time of such provision, and such processing will only be performed where consent is secured.
If you are an Employer, MV may request that you provide certain Personal Data to MEDVOCATION in order to verify your account. This information may include, but may not be limited to, your Business Registration information,or a utility bill, the name and email address of an Employer representative.
MEDVOCATION may collect and analyze information from your computer or mobile device and actions taken on the MV’s platform, including, but not limited to, your resume, your searches on MV, 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, IP address and the domain name from which you accessed the Application.
You may also create an account or log in to your MEDVOCATION Account using third-party websites: Facebook or Google. If you do not already have an MV account but log in to MV using your Facebook or Google account, this creates an MV account using the same email address used in your Facebook or Google account. If you agree to provide this information to MV, Facebook or Google will authenticate you and redirect you to MEDVOCATION’s Platform. Please note, when you log in to MV using your Facebook or Google account, Facebook or Google will cookie you in order to authenticate you as a Facebook or Google user.
By accessing MV through your Facebook or Google account, you understand that Facebook or Google will share certain Personal Data for the purposes of authentication to permit you to access our Site in a secure manner.You may stop this at any point from your Facebook or Google account. This information will be considered MV account information for purposes of your use of the Site.
You have the ability to disable the connection between your Facebook or Google account and your MV account at any time by accessing your privacy settings on your Facebook or Google account. Facebook and Google may also ask for your permission to share certain other details with MEDVOCATION, including but not limited to your name, profile picture, public profile information, and email address. Once you give this permission, the requested information will be shared with MV, which may use this information to provide Services to you, including populating your MV profile. The shared information will remain associated with your MV profile until you modify or delete it.
If you enter credit card information on the Application in connection with a purchase, that information is sent directly from your browser to the third-party service provider we use to manage credit card processing and we do not store it on our servers. The service provider is not permitted to use the information you provide except for the sole purpose of credit card processing on our behalf.
When you submit Personal Data to a third party and are informed at the time of collection that your information may be shared with us, we may collect that information for lawful marketing purposes.
When you use the Application, your device is automatically providing information to us so we can respond and customize our response to you. Automated means of data collection include the following:
Log File Information. Log file information is automatically reported by your browser or mobile application each time you access a website on our Application. For example, when you access Medvocation Website, our servers automatically record certain information that your web browser sends when you visit any website.
Device Information. We collect information about the device you use to access the Application, including type of device, operating system, settings, and unique device identifiers, and IP address. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you’re using and its settings. For example, different types of information are available depending on whether you’re using an iPhone or Android phone. We collect the device type and any other information you choose to provide, such as indicated as email address, mobile phone number or geolocation. We also use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our mobile software on your phone. We do not link the information we store within the analytics software to any personally identifiable information you submit within the mobile application.
We are able to deliver, personalize, and improve our Services by combining and using the information we have about you to understand how you use and interact with our Services and the people or things you’re connected to and interested in. We also may use the information we have about you for the following purposes:
As indicated above, in certain cases we use your information where necessary to pursue our, your and others’ legitimate interests, including where necessary to:
You have a number of rights in relation to your information that we process. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. We describe these rights below.
As a global business, we access and transfer information around the world. If you are based in the EU, this means that we access and transfer your Personal Data outside the EU, including in and to the United States. The privacy protections and the rights of authorities to access your Personal Data in some of these countries may not be the same as in your home country.
Where we transfer information to persons outside EU we take reasonable steps to ensure that the recipients of such information do not breach the Ireland Privacy Principles (and where appropriate the GDPR) in relation to that information by entering into binding contractual arrangements with such third parties.
In particular, where we transfer information to countries that are not viewed as providing adequate protections, we generally rely on an approved mechanism known as the ‘standard contractual clauses’ to protect the information transferred. These are template contracts published by the European Commission containing approved commitments to protect the privacy and security of the information transferred.
When we no longer need to use your Personal Data and there is no need for us to keep it to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements, we’ll either remove it from our systems or depersonalize it so that we can't identify you.
The security of your Personal Data is very important to us. We strive to use appropriate technical and organisational to protect your Personal Data. MEDVOCATION employs various practices with the goal of preventing unauthorized access, disclosure, destruction or accidental loss. These practices will vary depending on the nature of the data, the context of the processing, the risks involved and the technology available.
MEDVOCATION uses a range of security measures aimed at complying with the requirements of the GDPR. These include:
With respect to data transfers, MEDVOCATION Inc. is certified under EU-US Privacy Shield, and adheres to applicable Privacy Shield principles. It also adheres to GDPR requirements concerning transfers of personal data to MV entities and to third parties.
Our Services are for an adult audience. We do not knowingly collect, use, or share information that could reasonably be used to identify children under age 18 without prior parental consent or consistent with applicable law.
By creating the Medvocations’s Account, you accept that Cookies may be placed on your mobile or fixed device, under the conditions provided below.
1) What are Cookies?
A Cookie is a file of limited size, generally made up of letters and numbers, sent by an Internet server to the browser’s cookie file, and located on your computer’s hard disk. A cookie records information about how the user browses the website (page views, date and time, etc.; ‘Cookie’). When you visit the MV website again, the cookies allow us to recognize your browser. Cookies may store your preferences and other information but cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites.
Cookies help us recognize you on the Platform, enhance your user experience, understand usage of the Platform, and show you relevant advertising. Cookies may also be set by other websites or services that run content on the page you're visiting. After you register on the Platform, we may connect information we collect from the Cookies set by us and our partners with other information received from you. The provision of your data via Cookies is voluntary except for those Cookies that we place on your device because we need them for the performance of our Platform and our services.
2) What types of Cookies do we use?
We use two types of Cookies on the Platform: ‘Session cookies’ and ‘Persistent cookies’.
Session Cookies are temporary Cookies that remain on your device only until you leave the Application. A persistent Cookie remains on your device for much longer until you manually delete it (how long the Cookie remains will depend on the duration or ‘lifetime’ of the specific Cookie and your browser settings). An example of permanent cookies are the ones holding data such as login details, contact information and account numbers, so that you don’t have to type them in every time you use the Application.
3) What are Cookies used for?
Cookies transmit information about you and your use of the Platform, such as your browser type, search preferences, job titles, data relating to advertisements that have been displayed to you or that you have clicked on, and the date and time of your use. With the exception of an identifier Cookie that we associate with registered accounts to prevent fraud by members of the Platform, Cookies link to certain unique information such as the job titles that you entered at time of registration or on your profile, but this is not linked to your name.
In addition, we may also provide an employer with code for a Conversion Tracker to place on its Site that pings the job seeker web beacon and tracks whenever a job seeker has applied to a job on that employer’s website. This Conversion Tracker will attribute an application to Indeed any time the job seeker started their search on Medvocation, despite any intervening activity. MV does not have access to the cookies in the employer’s domain. The Conversion Tracker is simply a counter that notifies us that a job seeker has applied. If a job seeker has disabled the web beacon, the Conversion Tracker will have no functionality.
4) Cookies, Scripts and Related Technologies.
5) Collection of Data by Advertisers.
We may also use third parties to serve ads on our website or to manage our advertising on other sites. Certain third party partners may automatically collect information about your visits to this and other websites, your IP address, your ISP, the browser you use to visit our website (but not your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number). They do this by using cookies, pixel tags or other technologies. Information collected may be used, among other things, to deliver advertising targeted to your interests and to better understand the usage and visitation of our website and the other sites tracked by these third parties.
6) Settings for Cookies.
Cookies are only used if you accept them or if you continue browsing the Platform. When you visit the Platform, you are notified that Cookies are used and you are also given the possibility to refuse and remove them.
