Finally You may also create an account or log in to your AcademicJobs account using third-party websites including, but not limited to, Facebook or Google. If you do not already have an AcademicJobs account but log in to AcademicJobs using your Facebook or Google account, this creates an AcademicJobs account using the same email address used in your Facebook or Google account. If you agree to provide this information to AcademicJobs, Facebook or Google will authenticate you and redirect you to AcademicJobs’ Site. Please note, when you log in to AcademicJobs using your Facebook or Google account, Facebook or Google will cookie you in order to authenticate you as a Facebook or Google user.

By accessing AcademicJobs through your Facebook or Google account, you understand that Facebook or Google will share certain data detailed above in this paragraph for the purposes of authentication to permit you to access our Site in a secure manner. You may stop this at any point from your Facebook or Google account. This information will be considered AcademicJobs account information for purposes of your use of the Site.

You have the ability to disable the connection between your Facebook or Google account and your AcademicJobs account at any time by accessing your privacy settings on your Facebook or Google account or from your AcademicJobs account. Facebook may also ask for your permission to share certain other details with AcademicJobs, including but not limited to your name, profile picture, public profile information, and email address.


We may collect information stored in your social media profile that you authorize us to access when you use your social media profile to invoke features on the Sites.

If you create an AcademicJobs account, your information may be collected and stored in a manner that connects to your account email address.

AcademicJobs may also store the information detailed in this Privacy Policy on its equipment or the equipment of third parties that AcademicJobs has a relationship with. Such storage services will be governed by appropriate protections, as required by applicable rules.

6- Limitation of Use or Disclosure of Personal Data

Closing your account or Deleting Job Application

If you use the same email address to set up a new account, this data from a previous account will not become available to you again. Please also note that closing your account may result in you losing access to all AcademicJobs products and services.

AcademicJobs reserves the right to keep any materials in a closed account as necessary to preserve and protect its rights to the extent permitted by law (for example, to preserve records of a dispute) or to comply with its obligations under local law (for example, if requested to retain by law enforcement).

AcademicJobs shares your Personal Data with Employers via a job application, and as detailed in section 2 and 4 of this Privacy Policy. Employers agree to comply with all their responsibilities under applicable data protection rules with respect to the collection, processing and storage of Personal Data, as well as providing adequate protection of all data subject rights provided for under all applicable data protection rules. Other than instances in which users opt to provide their Personal Data via a job application, include it in a job posting.

Any resume or job application you or we send to an Employer via a job application may be kept by the Employer, and you should check such Employer’s privacy policy to understand how they keep your Personal Data.

We also share your Personal Data with our service providers, including affiliated companies and our parent company, which are located in jurisdictions outside your own. This helps us in the delivery of our own products and services to you. These service providers may only use or disclose the information as necessary to perform services on our behalf or as otherwise required by law. Any such sharing is performed in full compliance with applicable data protection rules and subject to appropriate safeguards, primarily through the use of extensive data protection agreements, in order to ensure adequate protection of users’ Personal Data. Your data might also be shared with third parties for targeted advertising/ marketing purposes.

AcademicJobs also may disclose specific user information when we determine, in good faith, that such disclosure is necessary to comply with the law, to cooperate with or seek assistance from law enforcement, to prevent a crime or protect national security, or to protect the interests or safety of AcademicJobs or other users of the Sites. This means, for example, that AcademicJobs may honor subpoenas, search warrants, law enforcement or court-mandated requests to reveal a user’s electronic address and identity, or other properly requested information.

Personal Data we have collected may be passed on to a third party  in the event of a bankruptcy or another corporate reorganization of AcademicJobs. In addition, if we are acquired by or merged with another company, or in the event of any sale of assets or other transfer of ownership by AcademicJobs to a third party (whether by merger, sale or otherwise), or any other reorganization or joint venture, or assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any of AcademicJobs’ business, assets or stock (including in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceeding), the Personal Data we have collected may be transferred to such third party as well as such third party’s affiliates and subsidiaries, and may be used by such third party in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Please also be aware that we may use third-party cloud service providers that provide hosting, data storage and other services pursuant to standard terms and conditions that may be nonnegotiable. These service providers have informed us or the general public that they apply security measures they consider adequate for the protection of information within their system, or they have a general reputation for applying such measures. However, we will not be liable (to the fullest extent permitted by law) for any damages that may result from the misuse of any information, including Personal Data, by these companies.
