Privacy Policy

Last updated August 26, 2019

When you post a job, we ask for company name, and email address. That's just so there is a company corresponding to the posting. We’ll never sell your personal info to third parties, but we may use your name or company in marketing statements.

Posting a job, we ask for your credit card and billing address. That’s so we can charge you for service, calculate taxes due, and send you invoices. Your credit card is passed directly to our payment processor (which is Stripe) and doesn’t ever go through our servers.

When you write to Rust Jobs with a question or to ask for help, we’ll keep that correspondence, and the email address, for future reference. When you browse our marketing pages, we’ll track that for statistical purposes (like conversion rates and to test new designs). We also store any information you volunteer, like surveys, for as long as it makes sense.

The only times we’ll ever share your info:

    To investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our Terms of Service, or as otherwise required by law.
    If Rust Jobs is acquired by or merged with another company — we don’t plan on that, but if it happens — we’ll notify you well before any info about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Your Rights With Respect to Your Information

You may have heard about the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) in Europe. GDPR gives people under its protection certain rights with respect to their personal information collected by us on the Site. Accordingly, Rust Jobs recognizes and will comply with GDPR and those rights, except as limited by applicable law. The rights under GDPR include:

    Right of Access. This includes your right to access the personal information we gather about you, and your right to obtain information about the sharing, storage, security and processing of that information.
    Right to Correction. This is your right to request correction of your personal information.
    Right to Erasure. This is your right to request, subject to certain limitations under applicable law, that your personal information be erased from our possession (also known as the “Right to be forgotten”). However, if applicable law requires us to comply with your request to delete your information, fulfillment of your request may prevent you from using Rust Jobs services and may result in closing your account.
    Right to Complain. You have the right to make a complaint regarding our handling of your personal information with the appropriate supervisory authority.
    Right to Restrict Processing. This is your right to request restriction of how and why your personal information is used or processed.
    Right to Object. This is your right, in certain situations, to object to how or why your personal information is processed.
    Right to Portability. This is your right to receive the personal information we have about you and the right to transmit it to another party.
    Right to not be subject to Automated Decision-Making. This is your right to object and prevent any decision that could have a legal, or similarly significant, effect on you from being made solely based on automated processes. This right is limited, however, if the decision is necessary for performance of any contract between you and us, is allowed by applicable European law, or is based on your explicit consent.

Many of these rights can be exercised by contacting us. If you have questions about exercising these rights or need assistance, please contact us.

Law enforcement

Rust Jobs won’t hand your data over to law enforcement unless a court order says we have to. We flat-out reject requests from local and federal law enforcement when they seek data without a court order. And unless we’re legally prevented from it, we’ll always inform you when such requests are made.

Security & Encryption

All data is encrypted via SSL/TLS when transmitted from our servers to your browser. The database backups are also encrypted. Data isn’t encrypted while it’s live in our database (since it needs to be ready to send to you when you need it), but we go to great lengths to secure your data at rest. For more information about how we keep your information secure, please contact us.

Deleted data

In the event you want to take down a job posting, we’ll ensure that nothing is stored on our servers past 30 days.

Rust Jobs may update this policy once in a blue moon — we’ll notify you about significant changes by emailing the job poster or by placing a prominent notice on our site. You can access, change or delete your personal information at any time by contacting our support team. Questions about this privacy policy? Please get in touch and we’ll be happy to answer them!
