Like most website operators, Nextep Recruiting collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Nextep Recruiting’s purpose in collecting nonpersonally identifying information is to better understand how Nextep Recruiting’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Nextep Recruiting may release nonpersonally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Nextep Recruiting also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Nextep Recruiting does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personallyidentifying information, as described below.
Certain visitors to Nextep Recruiting’s websites choose to interact with Nextep Recruiting in ways that require Nextep Recruiting to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Nextep Recruiting gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we may ask visitors who sign up for the job listing service at Nextep Recruiting.com to provide a username and email address and other information. Those who engage in transactions with Nextep Recruiting – by purchasing access to premium services, for example – may be asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information (such as credit card number and billing zip code) required to process those transactions. In each case, Nextep Recruiting collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Nextep Recruiting. Nextep Recruiting does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Nextep Recruiting may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Nextep Recruiting may monitor the most popular job listing sites on the Nextep Recruiting.com service, or republish job listings on Nextep Recruiting branded portals. Nextep Recruiting may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Nextep Recruiting does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Nextep Recruiting discloses potentially personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Nextep Recruiting’s behalf or to provide services available at Nextep Recruiting’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Nextep Recruiting will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Nextep Recruiting discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Nextep Recruiting believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Nextep Recruiting, third parties or the public at large. If Nextep Recruiting is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Web site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personally identifiable information.
We may also provide your personal information to companies that provide services to help us with our business activities such as offering customer service. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us.
If you are a registered user of a Nextep Recruiting website and have supplied your email address, Nextep Recruiting may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Nextep Recruiting and our products.

If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), Nextep Recruiting takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Nextep Recruiting always transmits and stores personal information securely. This prevents potential hackers from "tapping" a data conversation. Your login credentials are encrypted with strong encryption using the Advanced Encryption Standard. The data security standards we have in place include auditing, logging, backups, and safe-guarding data. Our servers are housed in datacenters that are ISO27001 certified, the highest and most current standard for managing systems and data securely. All datacenter facilities are protected by professional security staff utilizing video surveillance, intrusion detection systems and other electronic means. Authorized staff must pass two-factor authentication a minimum of two times to access data center floors.
No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can contact us at email@example.com.
