Monster Policy For Private Resume Database Hosting
Monster provides a variety of services to our customers related to hosting private databases (“Hosted Databases”), and the use of certain Monster applications in connection with such databases. These Hosted Databases are hosted by Monster, either on Monster’s own servers or on third party servers (subject to contractual terms), and are not a part of Monster’s web site(s). Monster does not own the data that is in the Hosted Databases and submitted to our applications. These Hosted Databases may contain personal information about individuals, including candidates for employment and existing employees of our customers. Such data may include contact details, work history, educational history, work preferences, and other data, depending on the particular customer and application at issue, and, in some instances, may include personally identifiable information ("Personal Information").
Monster serves as a data processor for the customers who own these Hosted Databases and utilize our applications on such data, and we therefore conduct our activities strictly in accordance with their instructions and pursuant to our contractual arrangements with them. Monster’s customers act as data controllers with respect to all such Hosted Databases. The data in such databases, including any such data submitted to our applications, is subject to the customer’s privacy policies. If you are a candidate for employment with one of our customers, or an employee of one of our customers, you should refer to the customer's website or human resources manager to understand the privacy practices that apply to your data. Moreover, if you would like to access and review your Personal Information, you should contact our customer (your potential or existing employer) with any such requests. We will cooperate as appropriate with requests from our customers to assist with such responses.
Monster is not responsible for its customers' privacy policies or practices.
Monster recognizes that the European Union and Switzerland have established strict protections regarding the handling of EU and Swiss Personal Information, and Monster therefore has elected to adhere to the US-EU Safe Harbor Privacy Principles and US-Switzerland Safe Harbor Privacy Principles (together, the "Safe Harbors") with respect to its own practices regarding EU and Swiss Personal Information that it receives in the United States. For further background and information about the Safe Harbors, and to see Monster’s representation on the Safe Harbor List, please refer to the U.S. Department of Commerce's website at www.export.gov/safeharbor.
