3.2. Region: The information collected above will be used by Meet.jobs and Meet.jobs global relationships or partners to provide related services.
3.3. How we use your personal data will depend on which Services you use, how you use those Services and the choices you make in your settings.

3.4. We use your information to authorize you to use Our Services. Our Services allow you to explore careers, and seek out, and be found for, career opportunities. Your profile can be found by a recruiter (a specific position) or a referee. We will use your data to recommend jobs to you. You can signal that you are interested in changing jobs and share information with job recruiters. We may use automated systems to profile and provide recommendations to help make our Services more relevant to our Members, Visitors and recruitment enterprise. Keeping your profile accurate and up-to-date may help you better to grasp the opportunities through our Services.
3.5. Ours Services provides exclusive search functionality and tools (including messaging and event notifications) for recruiting enterprise, headhunters and referees. The aforementioned personnel can export limited information from your profile, such as name, headline, current company, current title, and general location. You can make it impossible for others to find you through settings.
3.6. We will contact you through email, mobile phone, notices posted on our websites or apps, messages to you through our system, and other ways through our Services, including text messages and push notifications. We will send you messages about the availability of our Services, security, or other service-related issues. We also send messages about how to use the Services, job opportunity advice and promotional messages from us and our partners. Please be aware that you cannot opt-out of receiving service messages from us, including security and legal notices.
3.7. We target (and measure the performance of) ads to Members, Visitors and others both on and off our Services directly or through a variety of partners, using the following data, whether separately or combined:
Data from advertising technologies on and off our Services, like web beacons, pixels, ad tags, cookies, and device identifiers;
Member-provided information (e.g., profile, contact information, title and industry);
Data from your use of our Services (e.g., search history, feed, content you read, page visits, videos you watch, clicking on an ad, etc.);
Information from advertising partners and publishers; and
Information inferred from data described above (e.g., using job titles from a profile to infer industry, seniority, and compensation bracket; using graduation dates to infer age or using first names or pronoun usage to infer gender).
If you take an action (such as click) on these ads, your action is associated with your account and viewable by others, including the advertiser.
3.8. We do not share your personal data with any third-party advertisers or ad networks for their advertising except for: (i) hashed or device identifiers (to the extent they are personal data in some countries); (ii) with your separate permission or (iii) data already visible to any users of the Services (e.g. profile). However, if you view or click on an ad on or off our site or apps, the ad provider will get a signal that someone visited the page that displayed the ad, and they may through the use of mechanisms such as cookies determine it is you. Advertising partners can associate personal data collected by the advertiser directly from you with our cookies and similar technologies. In such instances, we seek to contractually require such advertising partners to obtain your explicit, opt-in consent before doing so.
3.9. We use data and content about Members for invitations and communications promoting membership and network growth, engagement and our Services.

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 promote interaction between individuals and corporate members in the Services.
3.11. 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.
3.12. Surveys are conducted by us and our business partner through our Services. You are not obligated to respond to surveys, and you have choices about the information you provide.
3.13. We use the data (which can include your communications) to investigate, respond to and resolve complaints and Services issues (e.g., bugs).
3.14. We use your data to produce and share aggregated insights that do not identify you.
