The information we collect is used to improve the content of our web pages and the quality of our service.
When you sign in to Ongig through LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter or other social media accounts, we may collect and store your first name, profile picture and access tokens* -- this allows Ongig to offer you the most convenient and valuable Ongig experience.
*An access token is like a valet key that some luxury cars have (great for safety!) that allow the valet to only drive a mile or two. Ongig is like the valet in that we can't go anywhere with your LinkedIn profile information.
If you are a job candidate, we ask for information about you, including the items below and other personal information:
Ongig will use such information with the intent on helping to connect you and any employer we think you will interested in. This may include allowing the employers to see your personal information.
If you are an employer, and you create a job with us, we will publish activity publicly on your job such as:
We charge employers for some services in which case those members will be asked for credit card and billing information.
Ongig also distributes media (e.g. pictures and video) on behalf of employers to help attract candidates. Ongig allows employers to connect their social media accounts (such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, YouTube and others) in order to access any media they have stored there and to upload it to Ongig with the goal to better attract job candidates. Such media, which at the user’s option may be personal in nature, is the responsibility of the user and we recommend that users of Ongig are familiar with the Ongig’s Terms of Service [link to Ongig’s Terms of Service page], including the Content section.
Ongig will do its best to always give you the ability to unsubscribe to any alert or service.
