Plum Privacy Policy

Updated November 20th, 2015

Information that is gathered from visitors

In common with other websites, log files are stored on the web server saving details such as the visitor's IP address, browser type, referring page and time of visit.

Cookies may be used to remember visitor preferences when interacting with the website.

Where registration is required, the visitor's email, first name, last name and a username will be stored on the server. Job seekers applying for jobs through our system, or entering the Plum system through a third-party partner, may be required to provide additional contact information to the company they are applying to such as phone number, address as well as a resume and/or cover letter.

How the Information is used

The information is used to enhance the visitor's experience when using the website to display personalized content and possibly advertising.

E-mail addresses will not be sold, rented or leased to 3rd parties without the permission of the user. The Plum service does match workers with employers. Workers that are users of this site can turn on and off what is allowed to be viewed by potential employers (except those that they have directly applied to through the Plum website or service).

When applying for a position through an employer that uses the Plum service, you are giving consent to Plum and that employer to view your assessment scores (if an assessment has been completed in our system). Additional consent is needed from you before those scores can be shared beyond the entities you have already given consent to when applying and/or taking the Plum assessment. Consent that you give to third-party partners (job boards, applicant tracking systems, etc.) with regards to information stored on their servers or access granted may entitle that third-party to data stored on Plum servers. The most common case is an application through a job board that sends the job seeker to the Plum Assessment. This job board has its own policies regarding privacy and terms of use. By agreeing to use the Plum Service through one of these third-parties, you also agree to allow said third-party access to your Plum data.

E-mail may be sent to inform you of news of our services or offers by us or our affiliates as well as for support purposes.
