Job sites have become important online destinations for those seeking employment as well as recruiters looking to hire new talent. But the convenience of these websites may come with some really big privacy concerns.
Like many employment websites, Glassdoor includes broad language in its terms of service in order to protect the site. But you may be surprised with how little protection you — the user — have.
Social Sign Up and Sign In. You may be able to register an account and subsequently access Glassdoor through a social networking site, such as Facebook or Google+ (“Social Networking Site”). If you access Glassdoor through a Social Networking Site you agree that we may access, make available through Glassdoor, and store (if applicable) any information, data, text, messages, tags, and/or other materials that you have provided to and stored and made accessible in your Social Networking Site account so that it is available on and through Glassdoor via your account and your Profile page. Subject to the privacy settings that you have set with the Social Networking Site account you use to access Glassdoor, personally identifiable information that you post to that Social Networking Site may be displayed on Glassdoor. Please note: your relationship with your Social Networking Sites is governed solely by your agreement with those Social Networking Sites and we disclaim any liability for personally identifiable information that may be provided to us by a Social Networking Site in violation of the privacy settings that you have set with that Social Networking Site account.
From the above, it’s pretty clear that via the site’s “social signup,” Glass Door reserves the right to store, track and access your public and private messages along with any photos and other data you share on social media. That means your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and Linkedin info is also likely fair game.
