Privacy Policy

Talenya, Inc. is a sourcing and placement technology and service company that allows recruiting professionals to recruit faster, smarter and better by using predictive algorithms, data-backed insights, and domain experts. We gather information about our Users, those that interact with our Website, products and Services, and about  job candidate profiles, to provide a better, more focused experience for you.

We at Talenya know you care about how your personal information is used and shared, and we take your privacy seriously. Our Privacy Notice will help you understand what information we collect and receive at Talenya, how Talenya uses it, and what choices you have.

This Privacy Notice does not cover the practices of companies we don’t own or control, or people that we don’t manage. This Privacy Notice is not intended to place any limits on what we do with data that is anonymized or de-identified so it is no longer associated with an identifiable individual.

  3.  Talenya Services for Customers. This section describes the type of data collected from our software-as-a-service applications and other products and Services (collectively the Services) that we provide to customers who have purchased Services (Customer), including each person who is an authorized user under that Customers account (User). Every User must have a unique account and password to use the Services.
  4.  Job Candidates. This section outlines how we collect data about potential job candidates. Please note that we may collect information about you even if you do not have a User account and never visit our Website.
  5.  Cookies. This section describes how we use cookies, beacons and other online tracking technologies in greater detail.
  6.  General. This section outlines general concepts that apply to the types of data we collect from all types of persons. It also explains how we communicate changes to this , and how you may contact us regarding any questions or issues with respect to anything contained within this Privacy Notice.

By using or accessing the Website or Talenya’s Services in any manner, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Notice, and you hereby consent that we will collect, use, and share your information in the following ways.

SECTION I: Talenya WEBSITE

Below is a description of what data we gather from you as a visitor to our various publicly accessible websites, which include https://www.talenya.com, blog.Talenya.com and other websites where this Privacy Notice is posted. For ease, we will call all these publicly accessible websites collectively the Website for short. The Talenya Website does not include our account portal, or other access to our Services that you get when you sign up for an account with Talenya. Information about data collected through the account portal (and other data collected as a consequence of having an account) is located in Section III Services below.

In this section, you may refer to an individual, company or other entity visiting the Talenya Website.

Please see Section V for more information about cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies.

For example, if you’ve given us your email address, we may send you promotional emails about Talenya, or email you about your use of the Website.

If you opt in, we also use your email to send you follow up comments for that blog post. We may take down blog comments which we deem inappropriate.

We use cookies, web beacons and similar technologies to help us better understand visitor and user behavior.

  1. C.  How we share this data

Unless you explicitly give us instructions not to share or collect data, we will share data we collect from you with third parties as described at Section VI.B (How we share your data in general). We might share data collected from you from the Talenya Website with a third party if that data has been anonymized, pseudonymised or aggregated in a way that does not directly identify you.

We also may share data collected from you with a third party we have partnered with for the purpose of inviting you to our company programs (for example webinars, field events, or other offers).

SECTION II: MARKETING ACTIVITIES

We market our company, products and Services in a variety of methods. Below is a description of what data we gather from you, and how we use data given to us, as part of these marketing activities.

In this section, you may refer to a variety of people, including:

If there are special terms and considerations, we will address the individual group by the capitalized term (Lead, Prospect or Customer). Where terms apply to all groups, we will address the group as you.

  1.   What data we collect and how we collect it
  2.  You may give us data directly.

If you elect to interact with Talenya, we will collect the information you provide to us in doing so.

Prospects and Customers may provide Talenya directly with data through a variety of methods, for example: during a marketing event that Talenya hosts, through email, or as part of an online webinar. We collect and store the information you provide. Occasionally, we may send you future communications, and as part of these future communications we may collect more data that you directly provide.

  1.  We may acquire information about you through a third party.

Talenya may engage third parties, who provide us with contact information for Leads. When acquiring information from third parties, Talenya will obtain contractual commitments from the third parties that the Lead information was acquired lawfully.

  1.  What we do with this data

Generally, we use all the data described in this Section II that you provide to us or that we collect to provide you marketing and promotional information about our products and Services. Communications will contain instructions on how you can opt-out of receiving future communications. You also may contact Talenya directly about its marketing activities at privacy@Talenya.com.

  1. C.   How we share this data

Third-Party Advertising Partners and Other Service Providers. We use third-party advertising networks to serve advertisements (for example, sidebar ads, banners or search ads) about our products to you on our behalf when you visit other websites within that advertising network. We may use third-party service providers to serve customized content to you on our Website. In order to enable the advertising described in this paragraph Talenya may provide your data to the third party service provider, but we only disclose the information that the service provider requires to perform its requested function.  We do not authorize the service provider to retain, share, store, or use personal information provided by us for any other purpose.

See Section VI.B (How we share your data generally).

SECTION III: Talenya SERVICE

This Section contains a description of data we collect or process through our Services (not our Website) and that relates to a Customer, a User or a potential job candidate.

Where terms in this Section III apply to all three groups (Customer, User and job candidate), we will address the group as you.

  1.   What data we collect and how we collect it
  2.  Customers and Users provide data directly to the Services or Talenya.

User account information. In order to use the Services, the Customer must provide an email address, account user name and account password for each User to the Services. When the User authorizes Talenya to access their Google email account, we access their profile as well as their gmail inbox.

We compare our profile data with the User’s Google profile data to verify that the correct Google account was used to authorize access. If the profile information does not match that which Talenya already has on file for that customer/user, then we request that the user authorize the correct account. We do not store or share the User’s Google user profile information.

We use the inbox in two ways: we send email on behalf of the User, and we search their inbox for replies to the messages we sent in order to cancel automated follow up emails when someone responds. Emails composed on the Talenya platform are stored on our servers before and after sending them through the User’s Google account. And, when replies are detected (based on email header information and subject lines), we record an event on our servers. The event does not contain the reply, only a record that the reply occurred. We do not store any other information, nor do we share anything from the User’s inbox

Candidate attributes. Through the use of the Search and Placement Services, the Customer and its Users can provide details of the position which they want to fill. Their search criteria can be based on geography, skills, job titles, company name or industry of the prospective candidates. We therefore use and process only the search criteria that our Customers provide to us.

Job openings and qualifications. In addition, through the platform, a Customer and its Users can provide descriptions of the positions that are open and descriptions of the qualifications of the desired job candidate for each open position. Customers and Users also can provide comments on each of their job openings and job candidates. This information is collected, used and shared only between Customer and its Users within the Services.

Information provided by telephone or email. Customer and Users also may provide data to Talenya by telephone or email, to request informational or technical support for the Services or to provide feedback on the Services. Talenya may ask the Customer or User for additional personally identifiable information, such as first and last name, account email and password.

  1.  We collect information about Job Candidates.

See Section IV Job Candidates.

  1.  We may acquire anonymized, aggregated data that relates to You.

Talenya has developed proprietary algorithms that monitor all transactions that occur within the Services. The purpose of these algorithms is to identify patterns of behavior, either unique to a User or to defined categories of people, which may enhance a Users use of the Services. Any data created or identified within an algorithm does not identify the activity of an individual User or job candidate. For example, we continuously improve our algorithms for trying to recognize the semantic meaning behind various attributes in a search query.

  1.  What we do with this data

Talenya uses the support services information and feedback described at Section III.A(1) in order to respond effectively to support requests, to fully understand feedback, to better understand how Customers and Users use the Services and to improve or expand the Services.

Generally, we use all the data that you provide to us or that we collect from you to provide the Services to you, to enable you to access and use the Services, to deliver your communications to their intended destination, and to analyze your use of the Services, to improve, enhance and expand our products and Services, and to detect fraudulent or unlawful activity in connection with your Talenya account.

  1. C.   How we share this data

See Section VI.B (How we share your data generally).

External Services. The Services allow you to send or receive communications to end user contacts through email communications. If you send communications through the Services, Talenya will deliver those communications to third party delivery networks in order for the end user contact to share and receive those communications. We call these third party delivery networks External Services. Examples of External Services include Sendgrid (for email delivery). How these External Services handle your communications once that information is handed off to the External Service network is determined by their own policies.

Aggregated or de-identified data. We might also share data collected from you from the Services with a third party if that data has been de-identified or aggregated in a way that does not directly identify you.

SECTION IV: JOB CANDIDATES

  1.   What data we collect and how we collect it

If you work and are a college graduate, then we may collect information about you from publicly-available websites or from third party vendors who have the license to provide such information to us. This information is limited to your contact information and information regarding your professional qualifications. We do not collect sensitive information, such as data related to your health or political orientation.

More specifically, the information that we collect about you will include personally identifiable and other information such as name, address, education, qualifications, work history, work title, email address, and achievements. We also collect information related to your profession you have provided to your social media profiles such as GitHub, Facebook, and Twitter, but only if the profile was available to the public when it was first indexed by Internet search engines.

In order to better understand job candidates and provide a better experience for our Customers, Talenya may create job candidate profiles within the Services for some job candidates. For example, the Services may curate some job candidate profiles for Customers by profiling the candidate within the Services as likely to move to a new job soon.

You have the opportunity to claim information Talenya collects that relates to you and correct the information or remove the information from our Services, as described in Section VI of this Privacy Notice. However we cannot guarantee that we will not later collect other information that pertains to you from publicly available websites or third party vendors.

  1.  What we do with this data

We may use this information to create a candidate profile, or append it to an existing candidate profile. We provide some candidate profiles to Customers who subscribe to the Services, depending on the candidate profile requirements established by each Customer. We do this for the purpose of finding candidates for open job positions with our Customers.

  1.  How we share your data

We may share your data with our Customers, Domain Experts and Users who are typically recruiters or recruiting managers or hiring managers.  In some case, we may share aggregated, anonymized or non-anonymized data with our Customers for purposes other than recruiting (for example, to understand  job candidate diversity in different geographic regions).

Section VI: GENERAL

  1.   How we secure your data

Talenya take security very seriously.

We use appropriate security measures to protect the security of your data both online and offline. These measures vary based on the sensitivity of the information that we collect, process and store and the current state of technology.

We describe some specific ways that we share some of your data in the Sections above. However, in general, unless you give us your permission, we won’t share your data with third parties, except as described here.

  1.  Offline Information

As you might expect, we usually collect or receive information through our Website.  But we also may collect information offline, and its important to us that we preserve the privacy of your personal information both online and off.  For example, if you call us with a support question, we may ask for your location.

We process Customer requests for data deletion within ten (10) business days of receipt of the request.

If you are an Talenya Customer and no longer want Talenya to use your data to provide you Services, you may close your account.  If you close your account then you no longer will be able to use the Services.

Talenya may have a legitimate business need to retain data indefinitely (for example, to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements). You may request that your data be removed from our service by contacting support@Talenya.com.

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process Customer, user or candidate data, we will either delete at request or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because the information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store the information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

You should not expect that all of your information will be completely removed from our databases in response to your request.  Some information may remain in our records after we delete your account. Talenya will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.

We are constantly trying to improve our Website and the Services, so this Privacy Notice may need to change. If we change the Privacy Notice then we will notify you here in this Privacy Notice.
