The CCPA was passed to ensure the responsible use of California consumers’ data. It aims to provide California residents a host of new rights. In particular,
(1) Residents of California now have the ability to access their personal information and
(2) They can control how businesses use their information.
(3) They can request that a company delete their personal information.
The CCPA also gives California residents the right to stop the “sale” of their personal information. At any time residents of California can stop the sale of their personal information by opting out. Once received, Freestyle Media will “Not Sell Your Personal Information.”
California’s definition of “sale” also captures the transfer of data between corporate affiliates (that is, companies that share common ownership) and other transfers that ordinarily may not be thought of as a “sale” in the traditional sense of the word. Freestyle Media does not have any affiliated companies but operates a number of branded websites. This includes jobabstracts.com, jobselectors.com, thefeaturedjob.com, joblytica.com, jobtkr.com, and localjobbulletin.com. Freestyle Media shares all data amongst its branded websites.
Freestyle Media only collects contact information and job related keywords that help us match you to job opportunities. We do not collect resumes or applications. When you apply for a job, your resume data, application materials, and other information will be entered on an Employer’s or their agent’s websites.
You can request that we do not sell your Personal Data by filling out a form found at the following link:
You can also request a Personal Information Inquiry by filling out a form found at the following link:
https://jobabstracts.com/Info/PersonalInformationInquiry, or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
By submitting this request, you are declaring that you are a California resident availing yourself of the rights afforded to you under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
Please note that we will attempt to verify your identity via the email associated with your request prior to fulfilling it. If you authorize another person to make this request on your behalf, in addition to verifying your identity we will also require proof that the person is authorized to act on your behalf.
Why does Freestyle Media Sell personal information?
Freestyle Media offers many services to job seekers. Hiring companies that offer job opportunities constantly seek potential employees that can fill these jobs. They pay for leads on individuals that have been pre-screened for the skills they require. In order for us and our partners to find you, we collect contact data and interest data to determine whether you fit their needs. We then direct you to these offers. California defines this as a data sale.
Since California has defined these arrangements as a sale of data, we are required to disclose the transfer of your data as “sales” of personal information, and therefore, we provide you with the option, “To Not Sell Your Data.”
Our partners will provide you many offers. If you do not want them, you may unsubscribe from them at any time.
Will Freestyle Media Allow Me to Use their Websites if I opt to “Not Sell My Data?”
Yes. Many features do not require that we collect your data. However as we explain in our Privacy Policies the richness of our services is our ability to target jobs for you based on your interests, and then to contact you with information about those opportunities.
What if I don’t live in California?
