How We Obtain Personal Data
As further described below, we collect several types of personal data from and about our Subscribers in the course of providing and supporting the Subscription.
Subscribers process Subscriber Data in the normal course of using the Subscription. Our collection, use, and disclosure of Subscriber Data processed is limited to providing and supporting the Subscription on behalf of our Subscribers, and it is done in accordance with the Subscription Agreement executed between Subscriber and iCIMS. Likewise, we process Subscriber Data at the direction of and pursuant to the instructions of our Subscribers.
As a result, under applicable data protection or privacy law, we are our Subscribers’ data processor or service provider. To that end, we also collect several types of other personal data from our Subscribers, including:
- Personal data and correspondence from Subscribers and Users submitted to us in connection with our services.
- Personal data we receive from our partners and service providers in connection with use of the Subscription.
- Personal data collected via our mobile applications.
Lastly, we collect several types of personal data from our Subscribers as a data controller or business (as defined under applicable data protection or privacy law), including:
- Personal data collected as part of our accounting, contracting, and billing operations, including, but not limited to, a Subscriber’s company name and address, credit card information, and business representative’s contact information (“Customer Personal Data”).
How We Use Personal data
We may use Subscriber Data to provide and support the Subscription, including updating and maintaining the Subscription and providing services. We will not use, disclose, sell, review, share, distribute, transfer, or reference any Subscriber Data except as permitted in the Subscription Agreement or as required by law.
We may use Customer Personal Data for account, contracting, and billing management purposes.
If we need to process personal data for an incompatible purpose not discussed in this Services Notice, we will provide notice to Subscribers or Users, as applicable, and, if required by law, seek their consent. We may process personal data without Subscribers’ or Users’ knowledge or consent only where required by applicable law. Lastly, iCIMS does not subject personal data to automated decision-making.
Legal Basis for Processing Personal Data
If you are a resident of the EEA, the UK, or Switzerland, our legal basis for collecting and using the personal data described above will depend on the personal data concerned and the context in which we collect it. However, we will normally collect and/or process your personal data pursuant to one or more of the following legal bases:
- The processing is in our legitimate interests which do not override your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms.
- The processing is necessary to perform a contract with you.
- The processing is necessary to comply with our legal obligations.
- We may also seek your consent to process or retain your personal data in certain, limited circumstances that we clearly identify to you.
- In some limited cases, we may need the personal data to protect your vital interests or those of another person; for example, we may need to share your personal data with third parties in the event of an emergency.
If we ask you to provide personal data to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and let you know whether the provision of your personal data is mandatory or not (as well as the possible consequences if you do not provide it). Similarly, if we collect and use your personal data in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) that are not listed above, we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are. If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal data, please contact us using the contact details provided in the “Contact Information” section below.
Subject to the Subscription Agreement, iCIMS or its appointed service providers may collect, use, process, store and disclose personal data outside of our Subscribers’ home jurisdictions, including in the U.S., and in some cases, other countries. These countries may have data protection and privacy laws that are different than the laws of our Subscribers’ home countries. iCIMS only transfers personal data to another country in accordance with applicable data protection and privacy laws, provided there are legally adequate protections in place for the personal data. A list of iCIMS’ global offices is available here.
For Subscriber Data transferred from the EEA, UK, or Switzerland to iCIMS in the U.S., iCIMS, Inc. and its subsidiaries participate in and have certified their compliance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. iCIMS will protect Subscriber Data when it is transferred from the EEA, UK, or Switzerland to the U.S. by:
- Subjecting all Subscriber Data received from the EEA, the UK, and Switzerland in reliance on each Privacy Shield Framework to the Privacy Shield Principles. To learn more about the Privacy Shield Frameworks and to view our certification, visit the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield List
- Processing Subscriber Data in a territory which the European Commission has determined provides an adequate level of protection for personal data; or
- Otherwise implementing appropriate safeguards to protect Subscriber Data, including through the use of Standard Contractual Clauses or another lawful transfer mechanism approved by the European Commission.
For other international transfers of personal data from the EEA, the UK, and Switzerland, we will implement such measures as are necessary to ensure we provide appropriate safeguards for the transferred Subscriber Data, as agreed with our Subscribers. For Customer Personal Data collected, used, and disclosed by iCIMS that is subject to international transfer restrictions of EU data protection law, please see the “Legal Basis for Processing,” “International Transfers,” and “EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework” sections of the iCIMS Privacy Notice.

EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework
iCIMS, Inc. and its subsidiaries participate in and have certified their compliance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. iCIMS is committed to subjecting all personal data received from the EEA, the UK, and Switzerland in reliance on each Privacy Shield Framework to the Privacy Shield Principles. To learn more about the Privacy Shield Frameworks and to view our certification, visit the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield List.
iCIMS is responsible for the processing of personal data it receives, under GDPR and each Privacy Shield Framework, and subsequent transfers to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf. iCIMS complies with GDPR and the Privacy Shield Principles for all onward transfers of personal data from the EEA, the UK, and Switzerland, including the onward transfer liability provisions.
With respect to personal data received or transferred pursuant to GDPR, iCIMS is subject to the regulatory enforcement powers of the EU in conjunction with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. For each Privacy Shield Framework, iCIMS is subject to the regulatory enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. In certain circumstances, iCIMS may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
In compliance with GDPR and the Privacy Shield Principles, iCIMS commits to resolve complaints about our collection and use of your personal data. EEA, UK, and Swiss individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our privacy practices should first contact iCIMS as provided in the “Contact Information” section below. If you have an unresolved privacy or data use concern that we have not addressed satisfactorily, please contact our U.S.-based third party dispute resolution provider (free of charge) at https://feedback-form.truste.com/watchdog/request.
Under certain conditions, more fully described on the Privacy Shield website, you may be entitled to invoke binding arbitration when other dispute resolution procedures have been exhausted.
Security and Breach Notification
iCIMS maintains appropriate technical and organizational measures, including, but not limited to, reasonably designed administrative, physical, and technical safeguards, designed to protect Subscriber Data from accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access. The Subscription allows Subscribers to implement and configure their use of the platform and enforce some security requirements, including user access controls. iCIMS has a dedicated team responsible for monitoring and responding to security events, and it notifies Subscribers of security incidents and data breaches in accordance with its Incident Response Policy
We retain Subscriber Data according to the timeframes set forth in the Subscription Agreement. We retain Customer Personal Data where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax, or accounting requirements).
Mobile Applications Disclosure
If you (as a Subscriber or User) download and use any of our mobile applications (each an “App”), iCIMS will automatically collect information on the type of device you use, operating system version, and the device identifier (“UDID”).
iCIMS may send you push notifications from time-to-time in order to update you about any events or promotions that iCIMS may be running. If you no longer wish to receive these types of communications, you may turn them off at the device level. To ensure you receive proper notifications, iCIMS will need to collect certain information about your device such as operating system and user identification information.
iCIMS does not ask for, access, or track any location-based information from your mobile device at any time while downloading or using our App.
iCIMS uses mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our App software on your phone. This software may record information such as how often you use the App, the events that occur within the App, aggregated usage, performance data, and where the App was downloaded from. iCIMS does not link the information iCIMS stores within the analytics software to any personal data you submit within the App.
Since each Subscriber is in control of what information, including any personal data, it collects from its Users and Candidates, how that information is used and disclosed, and how that information can be changed, Users and Candidates of the Subscription must contact the applicable Subscriber with any inquiries about how the Subscriber collects, uses, and discloses personal data, including any privacy rights or data subject access requests, including, but not limited to, how to access, rectify, correct, delete, and port personal data contained in Subscriber Data.
Where iCIMS is a data controller or business under applicable data protection or privacy law, certain jurisdictions may provide you with privacy rights regarding your personal data. In particular, you may have the right to:
- be informed about your personal data;
- access your personal data;
- correct any personal data that is inaccurate;
- have your personal data erased;
- restrict or suppress your personal data;
- obtain and reuse your personal data;
- object to the processing of your personal data; and
- object to how your personal data is used in automated decision making, if applicable.
These rights may be limited, for example, if fulfilling your request would reveal personal data about another individual, or if you ask us to delete personal data which we are required by law to keep or which we need to defend claims against us.
If you are a California resident, please see our Privacy Notice for California Residents for additional disclosures and information about the personal data we have collected about you over the last 12 months and rights you may have regarding your personal data.
If you do not wish to receive our email marketing communication for promotional purposes, you may opt out by clicking on the “unsubscribe” or “opt out” link in the marketing e mails we send you.

To exercise any of these rights, please contact us by using the contact details under the “Contact Information” heading below.
We will respond to such requests in accordance with the requirements of applicable data protection laws. Please note that in order to fulfil your request, we may need you to provide certain personal data to verify your identity. Depending upon applicable data protection and privacy law, individuals may also designate an authorized agent to exercise these rights on their behalf.
How We Treat Do Not Track Signals
Various browsers allow a “do not track” (DNT) setting, which sends a signal to websites visited by an individual about their browser DNT setting. At this time, there is no general agreement on how companies, like iCIMS, should interpret DNT signals. Therefore, we do not currently commit to respond to DNT signals. We will continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology and the implementation of a standard.
Third-Party Applications, Integrations, and Websites
We may also connect to applications or integrations hosted by third parties for mutual Subscribers. These applications and integrations will interact with the Subscription and our processing of Subscriber Data will be in accordance with this Services Notice and our Subscription Agreement.

iCIMS reserves the right to update or change this Services Notice from time to time. If we make material changes to this Services Notice, we will post it to the applicable sections of our Website prior to or at the time of the change becoming effective. We ask that you review the Services Notice periodically to stay informed about any updates or changes that we may have made.
