2. Information Collected
In addition, as part of the standard operation of the Site, Topreqs 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. Topreqs reserves the right to match your IP address (or any other information) with other information about you in any way permitted by applicable law. Topreqs will store this information on its equipment or the equipment of third parties that Topreqs has a relationship with for that purpose. If you create an Topreqs 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. Topreqs 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, geolocation or email address.
If you are an Employer, Topreqs may request that you provide certain personal information to Topreqs in order to verify your account. This information includes, but is not limited to your Federal Employer Identification Number (EIN), Business Registration information, or a utility bill. This information will be used for internal purposes only, subject to any request by law enforcement or a court order.
3. Limitation of Use or Disclosure of Personal Data
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, CV, 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. Topreqs 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 Topreqs 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, Topreqs will begin to process that instruction within 24 hours and will have completed the operation within 40 days.
Employers may disable an account, however Topreqs must preserve business records pertaining to that account to comply with its obligations under law. If a Job Seeker wants to delete a job application performed on Topreqs’ site, they will need to contact the prospective Employer directly to request deletion of their application. When a Job Seeker creates a CV on Topreqs, they are given the option to make their CV public or private. Public CVs are available to anyone with access to Topreqs’ CV search application. Private CVs are only made available to those whom the Job Seeker has initiated an application or provided their CV. For job applications which you, the Job Seeker submit through Topreqs (including the use of an Topreqs Apply button) to an employer, (with related materials submitted), please note: 1) that your applications and materials may be controlled by an employer, 2) we may direct you to that employer for personal data deletion requests, and 3) Topreqs depends on the employer or the employer’s agent to provide Topreqs with the correct destination for all applications. In the event that the electronic destination provided to Topreqs is incorrect, your application materials will not be sent to the intended recipient of the application. Topreqs has no liability for such applications. If you do not wish to send your application materials in this manner, you should send them directly to the employer.
4. Uses and Disclosures of Information
Topreqs 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.
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. Topreqs provides two-way message proxy and relay services to the users of our Topreqs products, including: Topreqs CV, Topreqs Apply, and Post a Job. By utilizing this Topreqs relay function in connection with any of the aforementioned products, you acknowledge that you are asking Topreqs to send these messages on your behalf. We monitor, review, store and analyze your content (including your CVs, cover letters, applications, messages, questionnaire answers, 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 Topreqs 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 and block fraud and spam or reduce unwanted mail). When communicating through Topreqs’ relay system, you will see an email address with an @topreqs.com ending. You retain no ownership rights in these email addresses, which are specific to Employers’ Job Listings, but owned by Topreqs. Topreqs’ relay system will show the name associated with your account or job application in the “To:” or “From:” field. Please note that since these message proxy and relay services depend on the functionality of third party providers, there may be technical delays on the part of those email service providers. If you share the Topreqs-owned email address with someone other than yourself, and they send an email to this email address, Topreqs reserves the right to verify and confirm the identity of the sender of that email with the Employer associated with that email address’ Job Listing. Topreqs reserves the right to drop messages from our relay system that Topreqs determines do not adhere to Site Rules or any of the terms of this agreement.
Any information shared by you with Topreqs may be shared with or transferred to any Topreqs affiliated entity (including those located outside the European Union or Switzerland), 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.
Transfer of Data to Third Parties
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. These third parties may include (but are not limited to) service providers and vendors.
5. Contact and CV Information
When you give Topreqs contact information (such as your name and email address) and demographic information, you agree that Topreqs may utilize this information as set forth herein. You agree that Topreqs may, as part of its services to you, communicate with you, or initiate communication with you on behalf of a third party, through your Topreqs 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 Topreqs or that Topreqs may otherwise obtain from third-party resources. If and to the extent permitted by applicable law, Topreqs 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 Topreqs, including promotional materials. Topreqs may use demographic and/or profile data to tailor your experience on the Site, show you content that Topreqs 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 CV. To the extent you upload a CV or edit it, and subject to your Privacy Settings, you are making the CV, your name and other Personal Information that you place on your CV available to third parties who may be interested in you as an employee (and who may forward your CV and Personal Information to other third parties), to Job Seekers who may want to contact you, to search engines, or to the general public by posting your Personal Information on the internet.
You acknowledge that Topreqs may determine whether the words of your CV or any other individuals’ CV match the words of certain job descriptions, and vice versa, in order to improve the Site or any other Topreqs product or service (including by displaying or otherwise making available potentially relevant job descriptions and CVs to job seekers and employers). If you post a public CV, 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 CV and you may receive unsolicited contact from parties unaffiliated with Topreqs and for whom Topreqs 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, Topreqs does not warrant how often third-party search engines will update their caches, which may continue to contain your CV information. Topreqs reserves the right to charge third parties a fee for accessing your information, including Personal Information, as part of Topreqs’ services. At your direction, Topreqs may also send your CV to third parties if you choose to apply for a job listing.
6. Additional Uses and Disclosures of Non-Personal Information
Topreqs seeks to use reasonable security measures to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the Personal Information under Topreqs’ 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 nonnegotiable; 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. Please see paragraph 11 for liabilities pertaining to the transfer of personal data for EU and Swiss Residents.

The following section pertains to users who are located in the European Union and Switzerland. In the context of an onward transfer of data to a third party, a Privacy Shield organization has responsibility for the processing of personal information it receives under the Privacy Shield and subsequently transfers to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf. Topreqs shall remain liable under the Principles if its agent processes such personal information in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, unless Topreqs proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
