Creative Niche Inc. (Creative Niche) is committed to safeguarding the privacy of the Users of its Web site. This policy sets forth our policies regarding the collection and treatment of personally identifiable information.

“Site” refers to this Internet Web site (www.creativeniche.com) and other Creative Niche Web sites linked to this Site. The Site acts as a venue for delivery of Creative Niche applications (listed here by way of example only) for 1) individuals to apply online through our Online Registration; 2) Creative Niche to process orders, send newsletters, perform customer service; qualify applicants for possible employment; and 3) members of the public to receive marketing campaigns and inquiries.

 

What personally identifiable information is collected on the Site?

In the course of the online registration process, Creative Niche collects certain personally identifiable information. Personally identifiable information is information that can be traced back to a single User. First name, last name, mailing addresses, phone number and e-mail addresses are examples of personally identifiable information.

We may also ask for your job search criteria and preferences, your employment experience, educational history, your skills, references information, background information and other information contained in your resume.

Certain additional information is also collected and used solely in connection with improving the performance and responsiveness of our services and Web site. This information includes a User’s originating domain, time of visit, connection speed, domain names, and Internet service provider. This information is not personally identifiable information and there is no attempt to correlate such information to an individual User.

 

How is the information used?

We use personal information and other information collected through the Site to provide you with information regarding employment opportunities and career-related information, and to provide you with requested information and services. We may also use your personal information to send you automated email messages or marketing materials regarding our services. You may opt out of receiving such communications at any time by emailing update@creativeniche.com.

 

How is the information collected and maintained?

Any personally identifiable information collected by Creative Niche is provided directly by Users in the course of the online registration process. Users can contact Creative Niche to update the content and accuracy of their personally identifiable information; however, Creative Niche may retain in backup or inactive files the uncorrected or outdated form of data that is corrected or updated. Such data may be retained for several reasons, including backups for disaster recovery planning, dispute resolution purposes, troubleshooting, and enforcement of agreements. Creative Niche reserves the right to correct personally identifiable data to make it current and consistent with data directly input by Users, for example, when the User updates his/her address on his/her resume but not elsewhere.

This Site and all information collected through this Site is collected, stored, and processed in Canada with an outside party provider: The Staffing Edge Inc.

Personally identifiable information will not be sold to third parties. Third parties are defined here as entities not related to Creative Niche or its Web site.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Creative Niche will divulge personally identifiable information to law enforcement agencies or other governmental agencies when required to do so or when Creative Niche in good faith believes it is necessary in order to comply with legal obligations. In addition, in the event that Creative Niche or substantially all of its assets are acquired or merged into another entity, personally identifiable information may be transferred to the successor in interest.
