At Simplr, we take protecting your privacy seriously. In order for you to participate in the job application and recruitment process or to inquire about our services, we need to collect and use some of your personal information. We want you to understand what personal information we collect and how it is used.
What’s covered by this policy
This policy explains:
Personal information we collect from you
Applicants - If you are interested in employment with Simplr and choose to participate in the application or recruitment process, we will need to collect your personal information which may include:

Simplr may leverage external data sources in order to provide context and background on applicants in order to improve the application/recruiting experience, mitigate fraud or malicious activity, or comply with internal company and external regulatory requirements.
Where permitted by applicable law, you may be given the opportunity to provide information on your gender, race, or ethnicity. We may gather this information from you for reporting and record-keeping requirements but we will only use this information in accordance with applicable law and will not use it in making any employment decisions. Providing this information is strictly voluntary, and you will not be subject to any adverse action or treatment if you choose not to provide it.

Simplr also automatically gathers and stores certain information in our server logs about the use of Simplr’s services, including the number of unique visitors, the frequency of visits, how users interact with our services, user experience preferences, and other information that may help Simplr improve the user experience, mitigate fraudulent activity, and comply with legal requirements.

Cookies, Pixel Tags, and Third-Party Data Sources
A cookie is a small data file that is managed by your web browser or other application and stored on your local system. Simplr uses session and persistent cookies to, among other things, identify your device during a particular interaction and analyze your behavior during a particular visit. Most web browsers provide you with the ability to accept or decline cookies, as well as to be warned each time a cookie is being sent. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully use Simplr’s services.
Pixel tags, also known as web beacons, help Simplr better manage user experience and content tracking. Pixel tags are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, which provide a similar function to cookies and are used to track user interaction with content provided by Simplr or an affiliate organization. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s device hard drive, pixel tags are embedded within content. The small size and transparency of pixel tags are not intended to deceive content recipients, but rather minimize distraction.
Do Not Track and Third-Party Advertising Cookies
Do-Not-Track is a public-private initiative, http://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/, that has developed a technical “flag” or signal that an end-user may be able to activate within their browser software to notify sites that they do not wish to be “tracked” by third parties as defined by the initiative. The initiative, however, has not reached a consensus as to exactly what technical or other actions those parties receiving the signal should take. As a result, Do-Not-Track has not yet been standardized and most sites, including Simplr sites, do not alter their behavior or change their services when they receive a “do-not-track” flag or signal. You can, however, make decisions about your privacy and the advertisements you receive.
Please note, however, that if you do decide to block cookies or similar technologies, some parts of Simplr’s sites may not function correctly.
Third-party data sources
Simplr may leverage external data sources in order to provide context and background on the users of its services in order to improve customer experience, mitigate fraud or malicious activity, or comply with internal company and external regulatory requirements.
