2. Changes to the Policy:

Two types of information may be collected through the Site and our Services: Personal Information and Non-Personal Information. This Privacy Policy does not extend to the collection, use or disclosure of Non-Personal Information (as defined further below).

"Personal Information" is any information about an identifiable individual, such as your name, telephone number, address, email address, and work experience or other resume information. Personal Information does not include information that is anonymous or aggregated so that it does not identify a specific individual.

"Non-Personal Information" is information of an anonymous nature that is not linked to an individual, and may include an Internet Protocol Address (IP Address), the domain used to access the Site, App and/or Services, and the type and version of browser or operating system being used by visitors to the Site.

We may also collect Non-Personal Information from third parties, such as our business partners, advertisers, and analytics providers.

Business contact information such as the name, title, business address, email address, or telephone number of a business or professional person or an employee of an organization is generally not considered Personal Information under applicable privacy laws. However, if such information is linked to an individual, it may be considered Personal Information.

Log Files, which are records of actions taken on the Site and/or App, including the IP address of the device used to access the Site and/or App, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
