Canadian Privacy Policies for Employers and Job Seekers

Ensuring Privacy and Security: Job Seekers and Employers in Canada

Ignite Desk’s Canada Workstation’s primary goal is to protect the privacy of job seekers and companies in Canada by establishing a secure and safe environment.


Purpose of Privacy Statement

This privacy policy specifically addresses the collection and utilization of online data through the Ignite Desk’s Canada Workstation website in Canada []. It outlines our principles and procedures for gathering data from users in Canada.


Linked Websites

Please be aware that Ignite Desk’s Canada Workstation may provide links to external third-party websites over which we have no control. We cannot be held responsible for the privacy practices or policies implemented by these websites. We strongly recommend that users in Canada fully understand how these websites collect, use, and share data and carefully review their privacy policies.


Collection of Personally Identifiable Information

When you register on our website to search for jobs in Canada and create a profile, we may request personally identifiable information such as your name, address, email address, phone number, physical address, and date of birth. Additionally, non-unique demographic information such as gender, preferences, and preferred topics may be collected.


Monitoring User Behavior

We closely monitor user behavior on Ignite Desk’s Canada Workstation, which involves tracking visited pages and utilized services. This includes collecting information such as IP addresses, domain names, browser versions, access times, and referring URLs. We gather this information to better understand general usage patterns, address any technical issues, and enhance the quality of our website and services. It’s important to note that none of this data is linked to any personally identifiable information.


Utilization of Personal Information

The data obtained through Ignite Desk’s Canada Workstation is used by our business to operate and improve our website, enhance user experience, and provide the services and solutions we offer. This encompasses technical, aggregate, personal, and demographic data. If you choose to receive them, we may use the email address you provided to send newsletters and job alerts.


Information Sharing with Third Parties

Protecting your personal information is our top priority. We do not disclose your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes. However, we may utilize third-party providers for certain website functions, such as payment processing and website hosting. Rest assured, these providers are legally bound from using your information for any promotional purposes unrelated to our services. Please be aware that there may be situations where we are legally obligated to share information in response to a request from a government entity.


Information Disclosure

We may disclose information in specific circumstances, such as when required by law, requested by a government entity, or in good faith to comply with regulations, protect our rights, prevent criminal activities, ensure national security, or prioritize user safety. Additionally, in the event of a sale, merger, or bankruptcy, your data may be shared. It’s important to note that our “Help” and “Contact Us” sections are hosted by a third-party supplier, but their information collection practices align with our principles and guidelines.


Job and Profile Privacy

Ignite Desk offers users two options for managing their resumes and maintaining privacy. One option allows you to store your CV in our database without making it publicly searchable, enabling you to apply for jobs online while keeping your information private. Alternatively, if you have a private resume and apply for a specific job opening, the employer will have access to your contact information.

We take measures to limit access to the searchable resume database for registered companies, recruiters, hiring managers, headhunters, and HR professionals. You have the freedom to remove your resume and delete your Ignite Desk profile at any time if you desire more control.

Please be aware that copies of your resume may have been saved by recruiters and employers who have already accessed the database. Once they have access to your information, we are not responsible for how they utilize or safeguard it.


Posting in Public Areas

Please note that any personal information you choose to submit in open areas of Ignite Desk, such as the comments section or searchable resume database, can be read and used by anyone. We are not responsible for the use that third parties make of the information you submit or make accessible in these public areas of Ignite Desk.
