For avoidance of doubt, you are not legally obligated to use any Services provided by the Company, or to disclose any information whatsoever to the Company. However, if you choose to use any of the Services, including without limitation use of the Company’s website, application or other services provided by the Company, in certain instances, provision of certain information may be a pre-requisite for such use/receipt of the Services.
We collect two types of data and information about our Users:
2.1. The first type of information is non-identifiable and anonymous information (“Non-personally Identifiable Information” or “Non-PII”). We are not aware of the identity of the User from whom we have collected the Non-PII. Non-PII is any unconcealed information which does not enable identification of an individual User, and which is available to us while such User is entering into and/or using the Service. Non-PII which is being collected consists of technical information, device information and general Services activity information. This information includes: type and version of the device you use or from which you access the Services, type and version of your operating system and carrier (where in mobile), type and version of your browser (via your user agent parameters), keyboard language, screen resolution, User's clicks or searches on the Services and referral URL (i.e., the website from which you arrive to our Services).
2.2. The second type of information is individually identifiable information (“Personal Information”). This information may identify an individual or may be of a private and/or sensitive nature. Visitors of the Site automatically provide their IP address and/or advertiser identifier (when available on a mobile device) mainly for enhancing the User's experience and for geo-location and security purposes as further detailed below. Additionally, we may use User's IP addresses over time for anti-fraud detection and prevention. You may also choose to provide us, via the Website, Personal Information, including your full name, email address, position or title, the name of the entity you represent and additional information which may allow for the identification of an individual you provide to us, in order for us to be able to contact you and give you further information about our Services. In addition, we may collect your Candidates Information (as defined below) which may include Personal Information. Additional information may be requested from time to time upon the then-current need.
For avoidance of doubt, any Non-PII connected or linked to any Personal Information is deemed as Personal Information as long as such connection or linkage exists or possible. It should also be clarified that a User is not legally obligated to use the Website, or to disclose any information whatsoever to 4M.
