This site is not intended for children and we endeavor not to collect any personally identifiable information from children. EdGE Networks targets its services and this site to adults and not to children.

Disclosure of your personal information:

The term “Personal Information” means any information that relates to a natural person, which, either directly or indirectly, in combination with other information available or likely to be available with a body corporate, is capable of identifying such person, defined under Section 2 sub-clause (i) of the Information Technology (Reasonable security practices and procedures and sensitive personal data or information) Rules, 2011.

Personal information will be gathered for the requirement fulfillment, as stated in this privacy policy.  We do not sell your personal information to third parties.

Information related to Data collected through EdGE Network services

Once an employer registers to the platform, the business team of EdGE Networks will communicate for confirmation and pricing. After such confirmation, the data hence collected is only available to the employer. The employer now can create users with various access rights for project/resource managers, leads, recruiters etc. We collect the content and other information you provide when you use our Services, including but not limited to, sign up for an account, sign in, create or edit positions, download or upload candidate profiles. This can include information in or about the content you provide, such as data files uploaded. We also collect information about how you use our Services, such as the types of content you view or engage with or the frequency and duration of your activities.

Based on a created project/position by a respective manager/team lead, information will be collected from external job sites and internally uploaded profiles, and this information will be shared with a respective project manager or resource manager. This information will be stored internally for recruitment data analysis.

For the open positions, either the internally uploaded profiles can be analysed or sourcing activity can be carried out using external job sites for downloading matching profiles. Such profiles are now scored and shown in ranked fashion. Based on the score, each profile can be shortlisted and proposed and the status of each can be updated. The employers themselves authorize external job sites and data collected from such sites is only available to that employer network and cannot be shared/used outside of the network. Again the anonymity of the employees/external job seekers is maintained.

We collect information from or about the computers, phones, or other devices where you install or access our Services, depending on the permissions you’ve granted. We may associate the information we collect from your different devices, which helps us provide consistent Services across your devices. Here are some examples of the device information we collect:

  • Attributes such as the operating system, hardware version, device settings, file and software names and types, battery and signal strength, and device identifiers.
  • Device locations, including specific geographic locations, such as through GPS, Bluetooth, or WiFi signals.
  • Connection information such as the name of your mobile operator or ISP, browser type, language and time zone, mobile phone number and IP address.

On employer guidance, employees also can register and authorize themselves. EdGE Networks collects information under the direction of its customers and has no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal data it processes. The resume that an employee uploads will be provided only to the specific potential employers and won’t be shared with third parties.

The recruitment team does not receive any right to use the profile information beyond what is necessary. Except as provided in this Privacy Policy, EdGE Networks will not disclose personal information to third parties, including, but not limited to, companies affiliated with EdGE Networks. We receive information about you and your activities on and off HIREalchemy platform from third-party partners, such as information from a partner when we jointly offer services. Any matters relating to data privacy under GDPR terms and rights can be addressed on gdprcompliance@edgenetworks.in.  Also, EdGE does not use the data collected and stored for any other purpose than what is stated in terms. At the same time EdGE implements reasonable safeguards for data privacy including but not limited to data isolation, minimization, anonymization and adhering to least privilege principle wherever applicable.
