RecruitVirtual LLC, hereafter referred to as the “provider,” “we” or “us,” does business as RecruitVirtual, and operates the software application and website at RecruitVirtual.com (the services). We are committed to protecting the privacy of our users. We use our best efforts to ensure that the personal information you submit to us remains private and will only be used for the intended purposes.
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
The California Consumer Privacy Act came into effect on January 1, 2020. A full copy of the bill can be found here. We believe in the value of consumer privacy and have chosen to voluntarily extend the same rights and privileges mandated for California residents to all users in the USA. The CCPA provides users with the rights to opt out of certain types of data collection, to receive a copy of their data, and to delete certain types of their data. To submit a CCPA data request, please visit https://www.recruitvirtual.com/do-not-sell-my-personal-information.
How Your Data is Used
Any U.S. or Canadian resident aged 16 or older may register to attend virtual recruiting events or apply to jobs powered by our software applications.
When you register for one of our organizers’ recruiting events, you are creating a job seeker account with us. You may add to, edit or delete this account at any time. We allow and encourage you to update or correct your personal information at any time. Some events are organized by a single employer, while other events are organized by a third part (i.e. an online or virtual job fair organizer) and include one or more employers (exhibitors). When you register for an event, your information is made available to the organizer and exhibitors attending that event for the purposes of advancing your employment opportunities (i.e. we act as a data processor of your data).
If you apply to a job in one of our software applications, we avail or transmit a copy of the information that you voluntarily provided to the employer advertising the job (i.e. we act as a data processor of your data). We also preserve a copy of your data in the employer’s online account for their reference.
To preserve the history of each transaction, in accordance with the California Consumer Privacy Act section 1789.105(d)(1), we will not delete a job application or recruiting event registration transaction that we deem to have been voluntarily initiated. However, we reserve the right to delete your submission if we believe it to be fake or fraudulent.
When you register for an event or quick-apply for a job inside one our our software applications, we collect the following information from you:
- First and last name
- Email address
- Mobile phone number
- Optionally, your résumé
- Referring website address or source
- IP address
- MAC address
- Various other pieces of information dependent on the particular event or job to which you’re registering or applying
Sources of this data:
- You directly submit this information via one of our web forms with the expressed intention to register for an recruiting event, apply to a job, or communicate with an employer
- Your browser and web session
Chat and Video Communications
If you choose to communicate directly with a recruiter via chat or video conferencing within our application(s), our service is that of a common carrier. We retain chat logs in the employer account with which you communicated for their records.
Data Abuse Policy
While we cannot control how an event organizer, employer or their agents and recruiters use your information, if you believe that an employer has used your information in a way that violates your privacy or is inconsistent with the normal use of your information to advance your career opportunities, please contact us with the details of the occurrence. We may remove any event organizer or employer from our applications if they are found to be abusive of the privacy of our users.
If you submit your résumé while registering to a recruiting event, the event organizer may share your resume with the participating employers or recruiters. If you would prefer not to share your résumé with participating employers, please do not include your résumé with your event registration. Some events require a résumé to be provided in order to participate, so not providing a résumé may preclude your registration to these specific events.
When you register to attend a recruiting event, the data from your registration transaction may be shared with the following parties:
- The technology provider (that’s us)
- The organizer and/or employer(s) hosting or exhibiting at the recruiting event
- Sometimes, a third-party agency, if the employer has hired an ad agency or staffing agency to recruit on their behalf
Organizer and Recruiter Accounts
When you organize or participate in a virtual event with us, we collect your personal information which may include your full name, email address, mobile phone number, company/employer, photo, credit card, and other information in which your identity may be discernible, which becomes part of your account. If you are a recruiter (user role) at an event of ours, some of your personal information may be displayed publicly inside of the virtual event space. We collect this information in order to:
- Provision your event
- Contact you regarding your orders
- Confirm your identity as a legitimate organizer, employer or recruiter in order to protect our job seeker users
- For recruiters, to present your online avatar or profile to users
In order to protect the security of our job seekers and provide for discovery, organizer, employer and recruiter accounts cannot be permanently deleted by the account owner. If you wish to suspend your account, please contact us.

Communications From Us
Job seekers who register for an event or quick-apply for a job may be contacted by us. We typically contact you either by email and/or text message. Our messages are typically either “transactional” or “marketing” in nature.
Transactional messages are responses to actions that you initiate(d). Examples of transactional messages include:
- Confirmation and reminders of your event registration
- Password resets or application access requests
- Other notifications of a transaction that you voluntarily initiated, such as the confirmation of a job apply
Marketing messages contain opportunities which we believe are relevant and potentially of interest to you. Examples of marketing messages include:
- Invitations to employment events
- Instructions about how to better utilize our software and services
- Information about job opportunities that we believe may be relevant based on your previous activity, your location or other details
By registering or applying, you agree to be contacted by us. However you can opt out of many types of messages. Specifically:
- You may opt out of marketing communications at any time
- If you’d like to opt out of text messages, reply “STOP”
- If you’d prefer to opt out of email communications, click the unsubscribe link in the message footer
- Whenever you initiate a new transaction (such as applying for a job), you agree to receive a transaction confirmation via email and/or text message, however, you may opt out of subsequent automated reminders regarding that same transaction.
General Information Disclosure
We do not disclose personal information about you to any third parties beyond those participating in an event to which you registered or a job to which you applied, unless:
- You consent to such disclosure, or indicate you would like to receive information about the products or services of third parties
- It is required by the companies we employ to perform functions on our behalf, such as processing or analyzing data, providing communication services, or processing credit card payments
- It is required by a court or requested by a law enforcement agency and we believe it is reasonably necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process; (b) protect the rights or property of the provider; (c) prevent a crime or aide national security; or (d) protect the personal safety of users or the public
- A third party acquires a substantial portion of our company or assets, whether by way of merger, consolidation or purchase of stock or assets, or as part of an adjudication
We have implemented strict and reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. When you use our applications, your information is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) protocol. SSL makes it difficult for your information to be intercepted or stolen while being transmitted. Furthermore, we use a PCI-compliant third-party service company to process our online credit card transactions.

We cannot make any guarantee as to the records retention or destruction of third parties who may have lawfully obtained or made copies of your résumé or other information, such as those employers with which you communicated or that have already received your registration or job-apply prior to your decision to delete your account.
