How Optimize Hire Uses Information

Information Collection
You may choose to provide us with your personal information, such as your name, email address, company information, number of anticipated hires, and telephone number when providing responses to form submissions as a way to get in touch with our sales or marketing team.

Optimize Hire uses website tracking technologies to observe your activities, interactions, preferences, transactional information, and other computer and connection information (such as an IP address) relating to your use of our website. We may also use log files, cookies, and similar technologies to collect information about the pages you view, links you click, and other actions you take when accessing our websites, services, or emails.

This section describes some of the ways in which Optimize Hire uses the information we collect. Please note that there may be other uses, which we would describe to you when we collect the information.

Optimize Hire uses the information we collect about you to provide the Optimize Hire websites, services, and support. For example, if you provide information to us in a “Contact Us” form, we will use your information to respond to the request.

We use the contact information we collect from you and information about your activity on our websites to send you information that we believe may be of interest to you, such as product announcements, newsletters, educational materials, and details on upcoming events. We also use it to send administrative information, such as notices related to products, services, or policy changes.

We use the information we collect to understand how our websites and services are being used and to make improvements. For example, tracking website users allows us to see which pages are performing better than others, and make adjustments accordingly.

We may use your information to diagnose website technical problems, as well as to prevent, detect, mitigate, and investigate potential security issues, as well as fraudulent or illegal activity.

In some instances, we may combine the information you have provided to us with other publicly available information. We may also purchase data from third parties and combine this with information we have already collected. We use this combined information to update, expand, and analyze our marketing leads and identify new customers.

Optimize Hire may share information with third-party service providers or vendors contracted to provide services on our behalf. These third-party service providers or vendors may use information we provide to them only as instructed by Optimize Hire.

Optimize Hire will only employ third party services for technical and operational support. We may share your contact information with this approved third party to communicate with you about Optimize Hire.

Optimize Hire may disclose information if we have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal processes; (b) protect and defend our rights or property; (c) enforce the website Terms and Conditions; and/or (d) act to protect the interests of our users or others.

If Optimize Hire goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your personal information may be among the assets transferred.

Optimize Hire Forums
You may post comments or questions on our websites; for example, on a blog, community site, or developer forum. Some of these forums allow you to provide your personal information. Personal information you submit in these public areas can be read and collected by others who access them. You should only post personal information to online forums with the awareness that the information will be available to others in the forum (unless stated otherwise). Comments posted by individuals in an online forum reflect their own views and should not be considered to reflect the opinion of Optimize Hire.
