Some personal information included in this category may overlap with other categories.
|C. Protected classification characteristics under California or federal law||iSOCRATES does not request or require you to provide protected classification characteristics. However, please carefully consider the information contained within your resume/CV and application materials to ensure that you are not providing any protected classification characteristics that are not necessary for your job application or job search.

Employers or hiring managers may request a veteran or military status in accordance with applicable law, and you may choose whether to submit that information with your job application on our Website.

NOTE: iSOCRATES has not collected any of the following categories of personal information from consumers within the last twelve (12) months:
iSOCRATES collects, uses and shares de-identified and/or aggregated consumer information, which is not considered personal information. Deidentified or aggregated data may be derived from your personal information, but is not considered personal information under CCPA, since it does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Internet or other similar network activity to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature.
We obtain the categories of personal information listed above from the following categories of sources:
2. USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
iSOCRATES will not collect additional categories of personal information or use the personal information we collected for materially different, unrelated, or incompatible purposes without providing you notice
3. SHARING PERSONAL INFORMATION
We disclose your personal information when you intentionally interact with third parties and when you direct us or intentionally use iSOCRATES to share your personal information in connection with the services that we provide to you. For example, if you are a job seeker and apply to a job posting on our Website, we will share your personal information with that prospective employer and/or its agent or representative (including but not limited to, external Applicant Tracking Systems or any other external systems used by the direct employer to manage the hiring of employees or other categories of workers); or if you are a job seeker and you are opted-in to our Resume Database, we will share your personal information with prospective employers and/or their agents or representatives.
Category A: Identifiers
Category B: California Customer Records personal information categories
Category C: Protected classification characteristics under California or federal law
Category D: Commercial information
Category E: Internet or other similar network activity
Category F: Geolocation data
Category G: Professional or employment-related information
Category H: Inferences drawn from other personal information
Your privacy is our priority, and we do not monetize your personal information by selling it to third parties.
After you visit our Website and/or use our Services, you may receive advertisements about iSOCRATES’s services when you visit other websites (i.e., social media sites, search engines or other websites that are unrelated to iSOCRATES). This happens because we use third-party vendors to provide you with information about our services based upon your interactions with our website. These third-party vendors may work with additional providers in their relationship network that help provide the advertising services the third-party vendors provide to us. Note, we use these third parties only to show you ads about iSOCRATES services (i.e., we do not use third parties to advertise any other company’s products or services to you).
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.
Pursuant to the CCPA, in the preceding twelve (12) months, we have sold the following categories of personal information for the purpose of showing you ads about iSOCRATES services:
Category A: Identifiers
Category E: Internet or other similar network activity
Category F: Geolocation data
In this limited context, we may sell your personal information to the following categories of third parties:
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.
You may request that iSOCRATES 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 (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Requests below), we will disclose to you:
You may request that iSOCRATES 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 (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Requests), 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:
To exercise an access, data portability, or deletion request as described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us in one of the following ways:
Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
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.
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.
For more information, or to submit an opt-out request, you (or your authorized representative) may click here. 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.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:
6. iSOCRATES AS A SERVICE PROVIDER
In certain instances, our clients hire iSOCRATES 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 iSOCRATES acts as a service provider, it will collect, retain, use, disclose, and/or otherwise process personal information (i) to fulfill iSOCRATES’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 iSOCRATES processes personal data in the capacity of a service provider, iSOCRATES 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, iSOCRATES may collect, retain, use, disclose, and otherwise process personal information in the context of a service provider to:
Where iSOCRATES 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 iSOCRATES assisting you with your question or request.
