1. Information we collect

The following information is collected by or on behalf of FINDISH:

1.1 Information You Give to Us:

  • Registration:  We ask for and collect information when you create your FINDISH account. This may include your first name, last name, email address, gender and a password.

  • Profile:  You have choices about the information on your profile, such as your education, work experience, skills, photo, city or area and endorsements. You don’t have to provide additional information on your profile; however, profile information helps you to get more from our Services, including helping recruiters and business opportunities find you. It’s your choice whether to include sensitive information on your profile and to make that sensitive information public. Please do not post or add personal data to your profile that you would not want to be publicly available.

  • Posting and Uploading:  We collect personal data from you when you provide, post or upload it to our Services, such as when you fill out a form, (e.g., with demographic data or salary), respond to a survey, or submit a resume. You don’t have to post or upload personal data; though if you don’t, it may limit your ability to grow and engage with your network over our Services.

  • Communications with FINDISH and other Users:  When you communicate with FINDISH or use the Services to communicate with other Users, we collect information about your communication and any information you choose to provide.

1.2 Information We Automatically Collect from Your Use of the Services:

  • Location information:  When you use certain features of the Services, we may collect information about your precise or approximate location as determined through data such as your mobile device’s GPS to offer you an improved user experience. Most mobile devices allow you to control or disable the use of location services for applications in the device’s settings menu.

  • Service Use:  We log usage data when you visit or otherwise use our Services, including our sites, app and platform technology (e.g., our off-site plugins), such as when you view or click on content (e.g., learning video) or ads (on or off our sites and apps), perform a search, install or update one of our mobile apps, share articles or apply for jobs. We use log-ins, cookies, device information and internet protocol (“IP”) addresses to identify you and log your use.

2. How we use information we collect

2.1 Services:

We use your data to authorize access to our Services.

  • Stay Connected:  Our Services allow you to stay in touch and up to date with colleagues, partners, clients, and other professional contacts. To do so, you will “folllow” the professionals who you choose, and who also wish to “follow” you. You will be able to search other Members’ connections in order to exchange professional opportunities.

    We will use data about you (such as your profile) to help others find your profile, suggest connections for you and others (e.g. Members who share your profile or cookbook) and enable you to invite others to become a Member and connect with you. You can also opt-in to allow us to use your precise location or proximity to others for certain tasks (e.g. to suggest other nearby Members for you to connect with, calculate the commute to a new job, or notify your connections that you are at a professional event).

    It is your choice whether to invite someone to our Services, follow other Members, or allow another Member to follow you. When you invite someone to connect with you, your invitation will include your name, photo, network and contact information. We will send invitation reminders to the person you invited.

    Visitors have choices about how we use their data.

  • Stay Informed:  Our Services allow you to stay informed about ideas regarding professional topics you care about, and from professionals you respect. Our Services also allow you to improve your professional skills, or learn new ones. We use the data we have about you (e.g., data you provide, data we collect from your engagement with our Services and inferences we make from the data we have about you), to recommend relevant content and conversations on our Services, suggest skills you may have to add to your profile and skills that you might need to pursue your next opportunity. So, if you let us know that you are interested in a new skill, we will use this information to personalize content in your feed, suggest that you follow certain members on our site, or watch related learning content to help you towards that new skill. We use your content, activity and other data, including your name and picture, to provide notices to your network and others.

  • Career:  Our Services allow you to explore careers, evaluate educational opportunities, and seek out, and be found for, career opportunities. Your profile can be found by those looking to hire (for a job or a specific task) or be hired by you. We will use your data to recommend jobs or mentees, show you and others who work at a company, in an industry, function or location or have certain skills and connections. You can signal that you are interested in changing jobs and share information with job recruiters. We will use your data to recommend jobs to you and you to recruiters. We may use automated systems to profile and provide recommendations to help make our Services more relevant to our Members, Visitors and customers. Keeping your profile accurate and up-to-date may help you better connect to others and to opportunities through our Services.

  • Data from your use of our Services (e.g., search history, feed, content you read, who you follow or is following you, connections, etc.)

We will show you ads called sponsored content which look similar to non-sponsored content, except that they are labeled “sponsored.” If you take an action (such as like, comment or share) on these ads, your action is associated with your name and viewable by others, including the advertiser.

2.4 Marketing:

We use data and content about Members for invitations and communications promoting membership and network growth, engagement and our Services.

2.5 Developing Services and Research:

  • Service Development:  We use data, including public feedback, to conduct research and development for the further development of our Services in order to provide you and others with a better, more intuitive and personalized experience, drive membership growth and engagement on our Services, and help connect professionals to each other and to economic opportunity.

  • Other Research:  We seek to create economic opportunity for Members of the global workforce and to help them be more productive and successful. We use the personal data available to us to research social, economic and workplace trends such as jobs availability and skills needed for these jobs and policies that help bridge the gap in various industries and geographic areas. In some cases, we work with trusted third parties to perform this research, under controls that are designed to protect your privacy. We publish or allow others to publish economic insights, presented as aggregated data rather than personal data.
