We will remain the data controller and be responsible for any information shared in this way.  
  • Required by Law. We may disclose personal information or any information collected through the Site if we are required to do so by law or pursuant to legal process, in response to a request from government officials or law enforcement authorities, or as necessary or appropriate in connection with an investigation of illegal activity.

Your Choices

You choose whether or not to provide information on the Site.

The Matchpoint Careers solutions are based on science and this approach requires reliable and thorough information, treated with rigor. We do not ask for information that is superfluous to our efforts to use science to benefit candidate and employer.

California Privacy Rights

Under California law, a California resident who has provided personal information to a business with whom he/she has established a business relationship for personal, family, or household purposes ('California customer') is entitled to make a written request about how we have shared personal information about you during the prior calendar year with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. In general, if the business has made such a disclosure of personal information, upon receipt of a request by a California customer, the business is required to provide a list of all such third parties with whom we have shared personal information in the prior calendar year, and a list of the categories of personal information that were disclosed.

However, under the law, a business is not required to provide the above-described lists if the business adopts and discloses to the public (in its privacy policy) a policy of not disclosing customer's personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes, unless the customer first affirmatively agrees to the disclosure, as long as the business maintains and discloses this policy. Rather, the business may comply with the law by notifying the customer of his or her right to prevent disclosure of personal information and providing a cost free means to exercise that right.

We do not share information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless you affirmatively agree to such. If you do ask us to share your information with a third party for its marketing purposes, we will only share information in connection with that specific promotion, as we do not share information with any third party on a continual basis. To prevent disclosure of your personal information for use in direct marketing by a third party, do not opt in to such use when you provide personally identifiable information on one of our sites. Please note that whenever you opt in to receive future communications from a third party, your information will be subject to the third party's privacy policy. If you later decide that you do not want that third party to use your information, you will need to contact the third party directly, as we have no control over how third parties use information. You should always review the privacy policy of any party that collects your information to determine how that entity will handle your information.

California customers may request further information about our compliance with this law by e-mailing help@matchpointcareers.com. Please note that we are only required to respond to one request per customer each year, and we are not required to respond to requests made by means other than through this e-mail address.

Updating Information

We encourage registered users to keep personal information about them current. You may change personal information you have provided about you at any time by logging into the personal profile you created on the Site. After you enter your associated username and password, you can edit personal information about you. You may also update assessments you have completed from time to time, although in most cases we will ask candidates to update assessments no more frequently than once every 18 months.

If for any reason you wish to correct, update, or delete your personal profile please contact us at help@matchpointcareers.com in order make these changes. We will respond to your request to access within 30 days.

To make your profile inactive please turn off the job searching function in the account settings page. We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. Please contact us if you wish to cancel your account or request that we no longer use your information to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
