Hirebridge Privacy Statement

Latest Revision:May, 21, 2023


This Privacy Statement delineates the data collection and utilization practices of Hirebridge Inc. ("Hirebridge"), a provider of cloud-based applicant tracking solutions. It aims to enlighten job applicants ("you", "your") and your system users about their data handling when it is amassed via our client websites.

Hirebridge offers software and services to our corporate Customers ("Customers") who utilize our system for their hiring processes. In this scenario, Hirebridge operates as a data processor for its Customers.

This Privacy Statement does not pertain to the privacy practices of our Customers who may collect and process your data. For details regarding the privacy practices of the specific Client you are applying to, we recommend you examine their individual privacy policies.

Information we collect and its purpose

Hirebridge collects and handles personal data about you when you apply for a role with one of our Customers, submit an application via a third party job platform or job board, or when your details are submitted by a Customer or their users. Hirebridge serves as a data processor for our Customers and their users, managing applicant data as per their directions and contractual agreement. From a Customer standpoint, Hirebridge collects notes, interview evaluations and email communication and correspondence in relation to their candidate evaluation.

Hirebridge shall process personal information as a data processor on behalf of its Customers, who use the service to assist with their recruitment. When applying for a role with one of our Customers, our Customer’s privacy policy, rather than this Privacy Policy, will apply to our processing of your personal information.

The information we collect comprises, but is not limited to:

  • Identifying information: includes name, contact details, and other identifying information.
  • Job application details: consisting of resume/CV, cover letter, employment history, education background, and job preferences.
  • Communication data: which includes interview notes, email communication, and other correspondence with our Customers.

We gather and handle this information to offer our services to customers, to simplify their hiring processes, and as directed by our Customers.

Access and Accuracy

Hirebridge provides built-in tools for candidates to manage their own information, correct inaccuracies, and request deletion. If these tools are inaccessible, candidates can contact the Customer they applied to for updates and corrections. Hirebridge equips Customers with data management tools, including handling candidate update and deletion requests. If the Customer is unresponsive, candidates may reach out to privacy@hirebridge.com, and we will assist the Customer in making the necessary corrections.

Cookies and Tracking Technologies

Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them. Hirebridge uses cookies to store session tokens, which do not contain any personally identifiable information and expire after 1 day.

You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser. If you choose to erase or block your cookies, you will need to re-enter your original user ID and password to gain access to certain parts of the Web site. Our use of cookies and other tracking technologies allows us to improve our Web site and your Web experience.

California Residents Notice

Under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), if you're a California resident, you have certain rights regarding your personal data. Click here to view our California Privacy Notice. This notice applies to you and is in compliance with the CCPA. It explains that we may have gathered, used, and shared your personal information over the last 12 months, as detailed in our general Privacy Notice. You have the right to be informed about the data we collect, how we use it, and your opt-out choices.

Legal Bases For Data Collection Under General Data Protection Regulation and UK General Data Protection Regulation

Under the GDPR and the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR), the lawful bases we rely on for processing of your personal data could be as follows, depending on the company and situation:


Upon direct application with Hirebridge, candidates subject to GDPR and UK GDPR must provide consent in order to submit information to Hirebridge for processing. This is an essential aspect of our data handling practices.

The consent provided by the candidates is a deliberate and affirmative action which signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her. This consent is collected before the data processing starts and serves as one of our legal grounds for processing personal data under GDPR and other data protection laws.

Candidates have the right to withdraw their consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. It is important to note that the processing of certain data may be necessary for us to provide services, hence withdrawal of consent might affect the provision of these services.

Legitimate Interest

The processing of personal data may be necessary for the legitimate interests pursued by our Customers. For instance, our Customers collect application data for employment purposes to facilitate hiring processes, manage recruitment, or to meet other similar legitimate purposes. In such instances, the data processing is conducted based on the grounds of legitimate interest, provided the processing doesn't override the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subjects.


We may process personal data, in order for us to provide the services and meet our contractual obligations towards our Customers. This happens when Hirebridge performs services for our Customers, most notably processing candidate applications. Such data processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract.

We assure all our Customers and users that the personal data processed under these legal bases is done with utmost respect for their privacy rights, with adequate security measures put in place to protect their personal data against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction.

EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework

Hirebridge complies with and adheres to the principles of the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks, and is responsible for processing and transferring personal data received from the EEA, UK, and Switzerland. You can find our certification on the U.S. Department of Commerce's Privacy Shield List.

Despite the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework no longer being a valid mechanism for GDPR-compliant data transfers, and similar ruling in Switzerland, we maintain our certification and adhere to its principles. Currently, we use lawful mechanisms such as Standard Contractual Clauses for transferring personal data outside the EEA, UK, and Switzerland, yet continue to uphold the Privacy Shield Principles for previously transferred data.

For UK and EU residents, the following additional rights apply

In the UK and the EU, individuals have significant rights in relation to their personal data, most of which are established by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which was enacted in 2018.

  1. Right of Access: Individuals have the right to request a copy of the personal data a company holds about them, as well as other supplementary information.
  2. Right to Rectification: Individuals have the right to have inaccurate personal data rectified, or completed if it is incomplete.
  3. Right to Erasure (also known as 'the Right to be Forgotten'): In certain circumstances, individuals can request the deletion or removal of personal data where there is no compelling reason for its continued processing.
  4. Right to Restrict Processing: Individuals have the right to request the restriction or suppression of their personal data, which means that the company is permitted to store the data but not use it.
  5. Right to Data Portability: This allows individuals to obtain and reuse their personal data for their own purposes across different services.
  6. Right to Object: Individuals have the right to object to processing based on legitimate interests or the performance of a task in the public interest/exercise of official authority (including profiling), direct marketing (including profiling), and processing for purposes of scientific/historical research and statistics.
  7. Rights in Relation to Automated Decision Making and Profiling: Individuals have the right to not be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal or other significant effects.


The decision to provide Personal Information to Hirebridge is up to you. The notice we aim to provide where Hirebridge amasses personal information online should aid you in this decision.
