This WorkFountain web site (the “Site”) is owned and operated by Digerati Inc. (“Digerati,” “we,” or “our”). Our mission with WorkFountain is to provide efficient employment opportunity connections between employers (“Employers”) and candidates (“Candidates”) and to provide related support services to college representatives and career advisors (“College Representatives”) and to the organizations that utilize our WorkFountain product (“Portal Partners”). To do this, we collect, use, share, and store the information provided by users of our site (“Users”). It’s important to us to deliver a high quality experience whenever you interact with us, maintain your trust, and provide you a clear understanding of our services, practices, and terms.
Information We Collect & Use
Personal Information. We collect information about you (“Personal Information”) to provide, personalize, improve, and communicate with you about the WorkFountain services (“Services”) you request, to conduct research, and to communicate with you about other services we offer. Personal Information contains information you provide when you visit our Site, use our mobile apps, talk to us, set up or change your WorkFountain account, or otherwise communicate with us and includes your name, contact information, responses to the questions we ask you (e.g., academic background, work history, work interests, and preferences), information about the opportunities matched to you, and your actions in response to those matches.
Cookies, Pixel Tags, and Similar Technologies. We may also store information about you by using “cookies” (files that are sent to us by your computer or mobile device), pixel tags, and similar technologies on the Site that help us customize, remember, and process transactions with you; save your preferences for future visits; deliver advertising to you from WorkFountain and third parties both on and off the Site; and compile aggregate data about Site traffic and interactions. In the course of displaying advertisements or optimizing Services, we may allow authorized third parties to place or recognize a unique cookie, pixel tag, or similar technology on your browser. Any information provided to third parties through these technologies will not be personally identifiable, but may provide general segment information (e.g., your industry, geography, career field, professional and educational background) to enhance your experience through more relevant content. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to notify you when a cookie is being sent. If you opt out of cookies, it may diminish your user experience while on our site. You will still receive advertising through the site, but that advertising will not be tailored to your interests. We do not store unencrypted personally identifiable information in the cookies.
Log Files and Device Information. Due to communications standards on the Internet, we and third parties we use to place ads on our Site automatically receive the URL of (i) the sites you visit immediately before and after visiting our Site; (ii) the site associated with any ad you click on; and (iii) the page you were on when you clicked on an ad. We also receive the internet protocol (IP) address of your device (or the proxy server you use to access the Internet), your device operating system, type of web browser you are using, email patterns, your mobile device id, and the name of your Internet service provider or mobile carrier. We may also receive location data from third party services or GPS devices you have enabled.
We may keep Personal Information in order to provide Services to you; to maintain accurate financial, operational and legally required records; and to resolve customer service issues. We may alter Personal Information so it can no longer be reasonably linked to specific individuals, store that anonymized information indefinitely, and use or share it for any purpose.
We Only Share Personal Information Under Specific Circumstances
We do not sell or rent Personal Information. We share Personal Information with Employers and Candidates for matches that pertain to them. We share Candidate Personal Information with College Representatives for matches that pertain to Candidates who are currently enrolled or were students at the college within the last 12 months and for Candidates who have provided us permission to share their information. We also share Personal Information with our Portal Partners to enable them to provide WorkFountain Services to you. Once Personal Information has been disclosed to an Employer, Candidate, College Representative, or Portal Partner, we are not able to retrieve it. We may share Personal Information with our service providers to help us provide Services. We require our service providers to protect Personal Information from further disclosure. We may also share Personal Information if we believe in good faith that such action is required to comply with legal requirements or to protect our rights or the rights and safety of you or others. We may transfer Personal Information as required to complete a sale or transfer of our company or our assets. Except as specified above, we will not otherwise share Personal Information for any purpose unrelated to the delivery of Services without obtaining separate permission from you. The third parties with whom we share your Personal Information are obligated not to disclose or use your information for any other purposes.
