Your rights under California’s “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” right

"secured unified patents"

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) aims to provide California residents a host of new rights, among them the ability to prevent companies from “selling” their personal information.

“Selling” data and what it means

A common understanding of “selling” information is that it involves a company taking information it has learned about you and exchanging that information with an unrelated third party for money, who will then use that data for a new purpose that you did not intend. EngineerJobs never does this with your information.

We use our users’ information in order to help people get jobs. However, the CCPA has a much broader definition of “sell” than this which encompasses activities beyond the traditional common understanding of “selling” for money such as disclosing, disseminating, making available, transferring or otherwise communicating by electronic or other means, a consumer’s personal information for other valuable consideration. EngineerJobs strives to live up to the law, and your wishes, as it relates to this right.

What EngineerJobs does that may fall under this definition

This list is not meant to be exclusive but shows examples of what our products do. We say “may” fall under the definition of “selling” data because the CCPA has been drafted very broadly and may encompass certain activities mentioned above.

  • We allow third-party cookies, pixels and tracking technologies to help employers measure job listing performance and to optimize our online advertising.
  • We share site usage data with third parties to more effectively optimize our advertising and to show our users job ads that are more relevant to them. This sharing may also enable that third party to optimize other advertising to you.
  • We share data with our affiliates as described in our Privacy Center (

What EngineerJobs does not do

  • We don’t sell data to data brokers.
  • We don’t exchange information about you with a third party for money.

Reasons EngineerJobs “sells” or “transfers” your data

Each reason below is inherent in our mission to help you find jobs.

  • Showing public resumes to employers is how we help people who have made their resume public get jobs.
  • Allowing employers to measure job listing performance helps drive more jobs to the people who want those jobs.
  • Sharing data with our EngineerJobs affiliates allows people looking for jobs to access more job listings and employers, and for employers to access more people looking for jobs, as well as providing improved security for our users.
  • Sharing data with third parties allows people to see job listings that are relevant to them and for employers to access people that are likely to be suitable candidates.
