Types of Personal Information Collected
hiremycare.org JobsBoard is designed to match individuals seeking care providers (“Care Seekers”) with those that provide hourly care services (“Caregivers”) or other care resources such as products and contracted services (“Vendors” or “Product/Service Providers” or “Businesses”). We collect personally identifying information which includes any information that identifies or can be used to identify, contact or locate you. Personal Information submitted voluntarily into the electronic forms by the user, information you provide by telephone or email such as customer support communications, information we receive automatically when you visit our website, and other information from third parties such as verification services, payment processing services, and other online and offline services.
This may include but is not limited to information specific to the services requested or provided such the full name, address, phone number, and email address of the user. If you become a registered subscriber, such as a “Care Seeker” or a “Vendor”, we may collect your credit card information and billing address in order to grant you access to the database that requires payment or purchase advertising space on the site. If you register as a “Caregiver,” we may collect your gender, resume, age range, and other relevant information needed to match your qualifications to a job posting.
Providing your personal information is voluntary, and you may choose not to provide this information by choosing to not use our Site, services, or features.
