5.          WHO WE SHARE YOUR DATA WITH

We require all third-parties to respect the security of your Personal Data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your Personal Data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your Personal Data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions and this Privacy Policy.

                    A.              Personal Data

We may share Personal Data with the following parties:

Internal Parties

  • Access to your Personal Data will be controlled and only granted where necessary to provide our services to you and/or to allow us to perform any necessary or legitimate functions.

External Third-Parties

  • Service providers that we use to support our business and/or help provide our services to you, including, but not limited to, third-parties that host our Website, assist us to verify your identity, perform website and platform maintenance, risk assessments, and security, perform data and web analytics, provide databases, IT services, customer service, payment platforms and credit card processing, communication services, and email services. These service providers may be located in the United States and/or other countries (see section below entitled “Where Your Data is Transferred”).
  • Professional advisers, such as lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers who provide consultancy, banking, legal, insurance, financial, auditing, and accounting services to us so we can operate our business.
  • Taxing authorities, such as the Internal Revenue Service and other who require reporting of processing activities in certain circumstances.
  • Fraud prevention and identity verification services where we believe that disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of RTPark, our customers or others. This includes exchanging information with third-parties for the purposes of fraud detection and prevention and credit risk reduction.
  • Third-parties, where you have expressly consented to the disclosure of your Personal Data.
  • Law enforcement agencies, courts, supervisory authorities, regulatory bodies and certain other third-parties, to the extent that we are permitted or required to do so by law, or in order to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations, or in the interests of national security, or to respond to verified requests relating to a criminal investigation or alleged or suspected illegal activity.
  • To enforce our Terms of Use and other agreements with you, to respond to, and defend ourselves against, claims asserted against us, to protect the rights, property, or safety of RTPark, our services, customers or others, or to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or for debt collection.

    • If you have opted-in to our Resume Database (where such feature is available), we will share your Personal Data with prospective employers and/or their agents or representative that are permitted to have access to the Resume Database. You can opt-out of your information being available in our Resume Database at any time by updating this preference on the My Profile tab of your Job Seeker account.  However, if an entity has already accessed your Personal Data through the Resume Database or via the search results, and copied or otherwise saved your information prior to you opting-out, that entity will continue to have access to the information that was previously saved.

Please Note:  Please ensure that the profile information and resume associated with your account is up-to-date, so when you apply for a job vacancy through a RTPark Website, the employer receives your most recent resume. When you apply to a job vacancy using the “Apply Now” button, you will be given the option to use the resume saved to your profile or use a different resume before submitting the application.  You will have an account with RTPark if you opened an account yourself, signed up for job alerts, and/or applied for a job on the RTPark website. You can delete or replace your resume by going to the ‘Profile’ settings in your account. If you would like to change the resume you used to apply to a previous job posting, you can go to the “Applied Jobs” page in your RTPark account, and click “Replace Resume” to replace the resume used to apply to a particular job vacancy.

  • From time to time, we may run contests, special offers, or other events or activities (“Events“) on our Services together with a third-party partner. If you provide information to such third parties, you give them permission to use it for the purpose of that Event and any other use that you approve. We cannot control third parties’ use of your information. If you do not want your information to be collected by or shared with a third party, you can choose not to participate in these Events.
  • For any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information or with your consent.

Your personal data may be disclosed in response to inquiries or requests from governmental or regulatory authorities in the countries in which we and/or our service providers operate.

7.          HOW LONG YOUR DATA WILL BE KEPT

Different retention periods apply for different types of Personal Data and in determining the appropriate retention period, we consider several criteria, including, but not limited to, the purpose for which we hold your Personal Data, our legal, accounting, reporting and/or regulatory obligations in relation to that Personal Data, e.g., financial or tax reporting obligations, whether our relationship with you is ongoing, e.g., where you use more than one of our products and/or services, any specific request you may have made in relation to the deletion of your Personal Data, or where we have a legitimate interest in relation to the management of our own rights, e.g., the defense of any claims.  In some circumstances we may anonymize your Personal Data so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case we may use such information without further notice to you. Once you no longer have a relationship with us, we will retain and securely destroy your Personal Data subject to the foregoing and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.  If you request to receive no further contact from us, we will keep some basic information about you on our suppression list in order to avoid sending you unwanted materials in the future.

After you visit our Website and/or use our Services, you may receive advertisements about RTPark’s services when you visit other websites (i.e., social media sites, search engines or other websites that are unrelated to RTPark). This happens because we use third-party vendors to provide you with information about our services based upon your interactions with our website.

Our third-party vendors and, if applicable, providers in their relationship network, may use the information they collect for purposes that are unrelated to showing you ads about our services. When this information is used for a purpose other than showing ads about our services or other services we have requested, it may constitute a “sale” of personal information under the CCPA.

In this limited context, we may sell your personal information to the following categories of third parties:

  • Third-party advertising partners or advertising networks

The CCPA prohibits third parties who purchase the personal information we hold from reselling it unless you have received explicit notice and an opportunity to opt-out of further sales.

4. YOUR RIGHTS AND CHOICES

The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how you can exercise them. These rights are not absolute and certain exceptions apply under the CCPA, such as when you provide personal information in your capacity an employee, owner, director, officer, or contractor of a company, partnership, sole proprietorship, non-profit, or government agency in the context of RTPark providing a service to that company, partnership, sole proprietorship, non-profit, or government agency.

A. ACCESS TO SPECIFIC INFORMATION AND DATA PORTABILITY REQUESTS

If you are a California resident, and the CCPA does not recognize an exception that applies to you or your personal information, you may request that RTPark disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will disclose to you:

  • The categories of personal information we collected about you.
  • The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.
  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.
  • The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.
  • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).
  • If we sold or disclosed your personal information for a business purpose, two separate lists disclosing: (i) sales, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient purchased; and (ii) disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.

B. DELETION REQUESTS

If you are a California resident, and the CCPA does not recognize an exception that applies to you or your personal information, you may request that RTPark delete any of your personal information we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.

We may deny your deletion request (in whole or in part) in accordance with any purpose that is permitted by the CCPA. For example, we may deny your deletion request if retaining the information (or a portion thereof) is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

  • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities;

  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us;
  • Comply with a legal obligation; and/or
  • Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

C. EXERCISING ACCESS, DATA PORTABILITY, AND DELETION REQUESTS

Making a Verifiable Consumer Request: To exercise an access, data portability, or deletion request as described above, you can submit a verifiable consumer request to us in one of the following ways:

  • Delete Your Account:If you would like to delete your job seeker account (including the personal information associated with your account), you may log in to your password-protected account on the Website, visit the Account Settings page, and click “Delete Account”. We consider requests made through your password-protected account sufficiently verified when the deletion request relates to that specific account.
  • Download Your Data:If you are a job seeker and would like to access your personal information or obtain a copy of your personal information in a portable manner, you may log in to your password-protected account on the Website, visit the Account Settings page, click “Request Data”. When your export is processed, we will send an email to the email address associated with your job seeker account containing an access code required to download the data. We consider requests made through your password-protected account sufficiently verified when the request relates to personal information associated with that specific account.
  • Send Us an Email with your Request:You may send an email to vistaplus@uvirtpark.net. To submit a verifiable consumer request via email, you must email us from the email address that is associated with your RTPark job seeker account. If you are requesting access to categories and/or specific pieces of your personal information, you will be asked to provide identifying information that enables us to verify you with information in our system. Once you submit your verifiable consumer request, we will verify your identity by matching the information you provided us with information in our systems.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. However, we do consider requests made through your password-protected account sufficiently verified when the request relates to personal information associated with that specific account.

We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

Using an Authorized Agent: If you use an authorized agent to submit a request to access, delete, or opt-out on your behalf, the authorized agent must: (1) be a person or business entity registered with the California Secretary of State to conduct business in California; (2) provide proof of such registration; and (3) provide documentation or other proof indicating that they are authorized to act on your behalf. For requests to access or delete, we may require you to verify your identity directly with us, and directly confirm with us that you provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request.

Limitations on CCPA Requests: You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative; and
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

D. RESPONSE TIMING AND FORMAT

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.

For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance, for example, through an Excel or JSON file format.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

E. OPTING OUT FROM THE SALE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

For more information, or to submit an opt-out request, you (or your authorized representative) email your request to vistaplus@uvirtpark.net. You do not need to create an account with us to exercise your opt-out request. We will only use personal information provided in an opt-out request to review and comply with the request.

5. NON-DISCRIMINATION

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

  • Deny you goods or services.
  • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
  • Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
  • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

6. RTPARK AS A SERVICE PROVIDER

In certain instances, our clients hire RTPark to provide services on behalf of the client. In such case, we process personal information under the direction of that client as a service provider, and we have no direct relationship with the individuals (consumers) whose personal information we process.

Where RTPark acts as a service provider, it will collect, retain, use, disclose, and/or otherwise process personal information (i) to fulfill RTPark’s obligations to perform the services pursuant to a written agreement with that client; (ii) pursuant to a valid business purpose, as permitted under the CCPA; and/or (iii) as otherwise directed by the client in writing. Where RTPark processes personal data in the capacity of a service provider, RTPark does not sell that personal information or otherwise retain, use, or disclose personal information for any commercial purpose, except as otherwise directed by the client in writing.

In addition to the purposes set forth above, RTPark may collect, retain, use, disclose, and otherwise process personal information in the context of a service provider:

  • To retain and employ another service provider as a subcontractor, where the subcontractor meets the requirements for a service provider under the CCPA;

  • To detect data security incidents, or protect against fraudulent or illegal activity;
  • To comply with applicable laws;
  • To comply with a civil, criminal, or regulatory inquiry, investigation, subpoena, or summons by federal, state, or local authorities;

  • To exercise or defend legal claims; and/or

Where RTPark processes your personal data in the capacity of a service provider, and you seek access, or want to correct, amend, or delete your personal data, or have another request, we will provide you with the client’s contact information, so you can contact them directly. In rare instances, however, circumstances may necessitate RTPark assisting you with your question or request.
