Privacy Policy

Arena Analytics Inc. (“Arena”, “we” or “us”) values your privacy. This Privacy Policy explains the kinds of information we may collect about the visitors to our website at www.arena.io (the “Website”) and about applicants that apply or express interest in applying for a position at one of our clients, and why, and how we handle that information. By visiting, or registering with, the Website or by applying for a job and progressing through Arena’s application, you agree to this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Service located at https://arena.io/website-terms-and-conditions/ which are incorporated into this Policy by this reference. This Privacy Policy describes the following:

  • Why we collect information about you;
  • What personally identifiable information we collect about you;
  • How we store your data;
  • With whom we may share the information;
  • Privacy Policy updates;
  • Your Privacy Rights, Choices and Disclosures, including those for California; and
  • How to contact Arena if you have questions.

Why do you collect information about me?

If you are a Website visitor, we collect information to personalize your experience (your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs), to improve our Website (we continually strive to improve our Website offerings based on the information and feedback we receive from you) and to provide services or information that you request.

If you are interested in applying for a position with Arena’s client/s, Arena (on your or the client’s behalf), predicts the likelihood of applicant success in different roles inside the organization using machine learning and algorithms. Accordingly, we will predict the likelihood you will succeed in the position to which you have applied or a position in which you have expressed interest, and we will also predict the likelihood you will succeed in other roles in an organization whether or not you have actively applied to them or actively expressed interest. Arena and/or the organization to which you are applying will thus be able to help you navigate to positions where you are most likely to thrive and be happy.

Our Website and applications are not intended for use by children under the age of 18, and such persons are not authorized to use our Website or applications without parental or guardian consent. By using the application, you represent that you are 18 years of age or older.

What kinds of information will you collect on me?

If you are a Website visitor, we collect information from you when you navigate the Website or register on our Website.  Any data we request that is not required will be specified as voluntary or optional.  When registering on the Website, you may be asked to enter information about yourself such as your name or e-mail address. You may, however, visit the Website without registering.

If you are an applicant, we will collect information you have submitted through the application and screening process, including your resume and background information, and including how you respond to questions you answer through this process. Arena collects information electronically during your interactions with the screening platform which may be used to create our predictive algorithms. We may also collect information on you in the public domain that you do not provide directly to us, and we may collect information about the way in which you interact with these sites, including the device you use to access our application and how you use that device while accessing our application. We also collect contact information about you so that we may provide information related to your application and alert you about service-related announcements (such as when we must temporarily suspend our service for maintenance). We will not collect financially sensitive information, such as social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, and bank account or credit card numbers, and if we collect demographic information such as gender, ethnicity, or sexual orientation we will use that only to validate that our predictions are reducing any implicit bias in the hiring process.

We use cookies on our Website to understand and save your preferences for future visits and compile aggregate data about Website traffic and Website interaction so that we can offer a better Website experiences and tools in the future.  If you are applying to a position, we use cookies to help generate better predictions and increase the likelihood that you will end up in a position where you will thrive, though you may disable these cookies if they are used as outlined below.

We use Google Analytics, which uses cookies to identify the frequency of use of certain areas of our Website and to identify preferences. The information regarding your use of the Website that is generated by the cookie (including your truncated IP address) is transferred to Google, and Google will use this information to analyze your use of our services, compile reports on activity for us, and perform further services associated with Website use and Internet use. Google may also transmit this information to third parties where required by law or to the extent that third parties process these data on behalf of Google. You can deactivate Google Analytics using a browser add-on if you do not wish the analysis to take place. You can download the add-on here: www.tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

We operate social media pages on third party networks. When you visit our social media pages, data is processed both by us and the applicable social media provider. Social media providers are unaffiliated with us, and we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of social media providers.  Social media providers have their own terms of use and privacy policies, and we encourage you to review those policies whenever you visit their websites or interact with their platforms.

How is my data stored?

The data we collect under this Privacy Policy will be stored on our servers and other systems using a variety of technologies to encrypt and secure your information to prevent access by unauthorized parties. While we believe and intend that our information security practices reflect good practice, there is no such thing as perfect information security. As such, though our systems will be secured using industry standard or leading methods, given that frequently it is the acquisition of user credentials and devices that are the cause of security breaches, users assume the risk of security breaches and all consequences resulting from them. Please always be sure to safeguard your devices and credentials.

Will you share my information

We share personal information as follows:

  • if you are an applicant, we perform services on behalf of you and our clients, and we provide information about you to our client(s) with whom you have applied, or may apply, to a job;
  • to one or more third parties Arena uses to create and maintain the application and provide related services; and
  • in the event that our business is acquired in whole or part by another company, then to that company, but disclosure of your information will be subject to this Policy; and
  • if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary by law or the legal process, to protect and defend our or others’ interests or property, or to enforce or perform under our agreements.

Otherwise, we will disclose your personally identifiable information to a third party only with your consent or if we are compelled to do so by law. We will use your information together with the information from everyone else who uses our system to improve our algorithms, predictions and our products, but that usage will ensure that your information is only used in a de-identified format and in the aggregate with other users’ data so that you are not individually identifiable.

2. California Disclosures

California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) Disclosures. California residents have the right to request:

  • The categories of personal information we have collected about you;
  • The categories of sources from which the personal information is collected;
  • The business or commercial purpose of collecting or selling personal information;
  • The categories of third parties with whom we share or sell personal information;

  • The specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you.

Additionally, you have the right to request deletion of your personal information, the right to opt out of the sale of your information (if applicable) and the right not to be discriminated against for exercising any of your CCPA rights.

CCPA defines “Personal Information” using the following categories:

(A) Identifiers such as a real name, alias, postal address, unique personal identifier, online identifier, Internet Protocol address, email address, account name, social security number, driver’s license number, passport number, or other similar identifiers.

(B) Any categories of personal information described in subdivision (e) of Section 1798.80.

(C) Characteristics of protected classifications under California or U.S. federal law.

(D) Commercial information, including records of personal property, products or services purchased, obtained, or considered, or other purchasing or consuming histories or tendencies.

(E) Biometric information.

(F) Internet or other electronic network activity information, including, but not limited to, browsing history, search history, and information regarding a consumer’s interaction with an Internet website, application, or advertisement.

(G) Geolocation data.

(H) Audio, electronic, visual, thermal, olfactory, or similar information.

(I) Professional or employment-related information.

(J) Education information, defined as information that is not publicly available personally identifiable information as defined in the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (20 U.S.C. section 1232g, 34 C.F.R. Part 99).

(K) Inferences drawn from any of the information identified in this subdivision to create a profile about a consumer reflecting the consumer’s preferences, characteristics, psychological trends, predispositions, behavior, attitudes, intelligence, abilities, and aptitudes.

In the twelve (12) months preceding the Effective Date of this Privacy Policy, we may have collected or received from you and from third parties in connection with providing our services, information about California consumers in each of the foregoing categories and disclosed the information to our service providers and clients (with respect to applicants) for business purposes. Arena does not sell personal information for monetary consideration under CCPA. The provision of personal data to our clients is in the capacity as a service provider or under Section 1798.140(t)(2)(A) of the CCPA. In the event that the use of Google Analytics cookies constitutes a “sale” under CCPA, you may opt out of the use of such cookies by downloading the browser add-on here:  www.tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Our contact information is listed at the bottom of this policy. Please submit to us your name, email address and state of residence along with your request. If your name and email address are insufficient to verify your identity and assess your privacy request, we may need to ask for additional information.  You may also designate an authorized agent to make a CCPA privacy request.

California Do Not Track Disclosure: We do not take any specific technical measures to respond to “Do Not Track” settings in your internet browser. We are not responsible for the content or privacy practices on any non-Arena websites or the data practices of any of Arena’s clients. Please review the privacy policies of the organizations to which you are submitting applications.

California “Shine the Light” Information-Sharing Disclosure: California residents may request a list of all third parties with respect to which we have disclosed any information about you for direct marketing purposes and the categories of information disclosed.  If you are a California resident and want such a list, please send us a written request by email to legal@arena.io with “California Shine The Light Rights” in the subject line. 

Will this Privacy Policy ever change?

We may need to update this Policy to reflect changes in what we do and in applicable laws. We will, however, always maintain our commitment to respect your privacy. We will post any revisions to this Policy on our website so that you can see any changes that were necessary. Those revisions will apply both to data you provide going forward and to data we have already collected, and of course your usage of the system with that revised Policy will constitute your agreement with that revised Policy.
