Privacy Policy

Covey, Inc. (“Covey,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) is committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy explains how your personal information is collected, used and disclosed by Covey. This Privacy Policy applies to our website (www.getcovey.com) (our “Site”), and our mobile apps and referral software platform (collectively, our “Service”). By accessing or using our Service, you signify that you have read, understood and agree to our collection, storage, use and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service.

1. WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT AND FOR WHAT PURPOSE?

The categories of information we collect can include:

  • Information you provide to us directly. The information we collect will be added by the employee or by an admin from the employer. We may collect personal information as follows:
    • Information we collect from or about employees. When you interact with our Service as an employee, such as registering or onboarding, we may collect your name, email, title, phone number, location, and e-mail address. Additionally, when using the Service as an employee, we may collect certain information that you export from a social network (such as LinkedIn) and upload to our Service, such as your own network and profile information, including your photo and name, email address, phone numbers, and your connections’ current employer and title. Covey also provides employer approved templates and any outreach or follow-up that uses these templates may be collected by Covey. Further, Covey also collects certain communications through the Service between you, as an employee, and a job candidate.
    • Information we collect from employers. When you interact with our Service as employer, such as an admin user on your employer’s behalf, we will collect various personal information including your name, email, and title. Additionally, we will collect information relating to job candidates, including the jobs they applied to, personal information of the candidates (such as contact information and information on a resume), and the reason why a candidate was rejected, if applicable. We also collect additional job related information that is non-personal in nature and therefore not included in this privacy policy.
  • Information we receive from third parties. From time to time, we may receive information about you from third parties and other users. We may also collect information about you that is publicly available.

We use this information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Service, improve our products and Services, as well as to communicate directly with you. We may also send you Service-related emails or messages through our Services (e.g., account verification, change or updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices, updates regarding contracts that an employee has referred to its employer, to match open jobs with the best candidate). For more information about your communication preferences, see “Control Over Your Information” below.
