Privacy Policy

Application of Privacy Policy

Switch Inc. has created this Privacy Policy in order to disclose its use of personal data that you give to Switch, Inc. when you access or use Switch (as defined in the Terms of Service). This Privacy Policy is effective as of June 12, 2015. Switch's Privacy Policy covers only information that you bring into the mobile application (the "App"), and/or our website (the "Site") not any other information collected or processed by other web pages that Switch links to or pulls from.

Information Collected

After you register on Switch as a jobseeker or as an employer, we collect data including, but not limited to, user login credentials first and last name, employment & education history, salary data, years of experience, skills, and any other data which is provided to Switch.

Switch's App and Site allow you to authenticate and/or register using third-party social networks of which you may already have entered information about yourself. In our efforts to perform useful analytics, Switch may collect data that you choose to allow us to access using the aforementioned social networks, and we may then filter and sort that information to optimize the user experience.

Information Collected

Switch makes maintaining privacy in your job search one of our top priorities. We do our best to make your identity anonymous by concealing from employers, your first and last name, picture, and contact information. However, Switch will provide this information to employers after you've indicated that you are interested in their job postings by swiping right or tapping the checkmark button in the App. Switch users who are looking for jobs are cautioned that their profiles could contain information that makes them identifiable and able to be searched by employers outside of Switch's App and/or Site, even with the aforementioned information concealed from employers in accordance with our Privacy Policy. If you are concerned about this occurring to your Switch profile, you can edit or delete any information that may reveal your identity from your profile, such as your employment and/or education history. The companies you include on your Switch profile are blocked from seeing your profile. Switch is not liable in any capacity if an employer is able to search on any third-party website or search engine and discover your identity outside of the App or Site. It is solely your responsibility as a user of the App or Site to conceal or delete any information of which you feel may identify you. The email address you provide is not shared with any employer or anyone outside the Switch App or Site. When Switch connects a jobseeker and an employer through email, we do not share your email address, but instead we mask it by relaying the email message via an anonymous email server. You may share your email address at your discretion.

Use and Sharing of Information

At Switch, we use the data that we collect from you to provide job recommendations and to communicate with you, while also utilizing it for improvement of our product offerings. At Switch's discretion we may use any of the information that we collect from or about you to provide you our service, respond to you, and make improvements to the Site, the App, and our other products and services. The reasons for communication can include:

Opting Out of Communications

You may change your preferences at any time by modifying your account by making the appropriate changes in the settings section of your account in the App or Site. The communication settings are accessible by clicking the link at the bottom of any email we send you.

Account Deletion
