Moreover, Loop is not responsible for the functionality or security measures of any third parties with whom Loop interacts, such as social networks and our Customers, in the course of providing our Services.

We also take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling access to your mobile or email communications from Loop, at all times. In the provision of Services, access to individual (i.e., subscriber, user and job applicant) accounts is controlled by the Customer. Loop does not control account access to its Customers' Customer Systems, and is not responsible for the security of those systems. Please review the Privacy Policy of our Customer(s) with whom you are interacting for more information about the Customer's data security.

Loop has implemented commercially reasonable and appropriate technical, physical, and organizational measures to protect Customer Data from misuse or accidental, unlawful, or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, disclosure, acquisition, or access during the Processing, which will meet the requirements of the GDPR Regulation, or any stricter requirements, as imposed under the Service Agreement.

Access to Customer Data will be authorized only to the extent necessary to serve the applicable Data Processing Purposes and requirements of the Service Agreements. Loop staff with access to Customer data will be subject to confidentiality obligations.

Loop shall notify the Customer of a data security breach without undue delay after becoming aware that such a breach has occurred, unless a law enforcement official or supervisory authority determines that notification would impede a criminal investigation, or cause damage to national security or a breach of trust.

Data Storage and Retention
Loop will retain personal information that we receive and process on behalf of our Customers for as long as needed to provide services to our Customer. Our data retention periods will vary per contractual agreement with each individual Customer. Loop will retain and use this personal information to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

In some instances, Loop does not retain data beyond a single session. Once Loop has facilitated the transmission of personal information to a Customer's database that is not hosted by Loop, it is that Customer's responsibility to guard the user's personal information against unauthorized access or transmission. We may store personal information in locations outside the direct control of Loop (for instance, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers). When a customer terminates or deactivates its Customer account, Loop may retain the personal information of the Customer for a commercially reasonable time for backup, archival, or audit purposes.

Data Processing Purposes

Loop shall Process Customer Data on behalf of the Customer, only in accordance with the Service Agreement, pursuant to any documented instructions received from the Customer, or as needed to comply with the GDPR Regulation or any other Applicable Law.

  3. Monitoring and other controls needed to safeguard the security and integrity of transactions;
  4. Enforcing contracts and protecting Loop, its associates, Customers, Customer employees, and the public against theft, legal liability, fraud, or abuse; and
  5. Approved Loop internal business processes.

Upon termination of the Service Agreement, Loop shall fulfill its obligations to the Customer with regard to returning the data and securely destroying the data, subject to GDPR Regulation.

Transparency to Customer Applicants and Employees

Loop shall promptly notify the Customer of requests or complaints related to the Processing of personal data by Loop that are received directly from Customer employees without responding to such requests or complaints, unless otherwise provided in the Service Agreement or instructed by the Customer.

Sub Processors

Third Party Sub Processors may only Process Customer Data pursuant to a Sub Processor Contract. The Sub Processor Contract shall impose similar data protection-related Processing terms on the Third Party Sub Processor that will be not less protective than those imposed on the Loop Contracting Entity by the Service Agreement and the Loop Privacy Code for Customer Data Processing Services.

Loop shall maintain a record of accredited Sub Processors involved in the performance of the relevant Customer Services and Loop shall provide notice to the Customer of any new Sub Processors engaged by Loop for the delivery of the Customer Services. Customers have 30 days from notification date to object to the use of new Sub Processors engaged by Loop.

What are Cookies & does Loop use them?

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file comprised of letters and numbers that we place onto your device to enable key Loop features and functionalities. Cookies support the easy sharing of your information on Loop Sites, facilitate the delivery of tailored content to you from our Customers, and support a number of customized features through Loop plugins such as our registration forms and mobile links. Cookies also allow us to identify your device, secure your access to Loop and our sites in general, and even to identify if/when someone attempts to access your account from a different device.

When does Loop use cookies?

We use cookies on our websites (www.loopworks.com) and mobile sites or applications, and any browser loading these sites (ie. any time you access these sites) will receive cookies from us. For our CRM users, or those registering on Loop sites, we also place cookies in your browser when you visit third party (ie. non-Loop) sites that host our plugins, such as our Loop registration forms.

Should you get interrupted for any reason (including browser shutdowns or loss of access to the Internet) while completing a job application, persistent cookies will allow you to continue where you left off (at a later time).

You will also have the option to save details (that you enter about yourself) after you close your browser, so that you will not have to re-enter the same details the next time you need to fill in a form on one of our sites.

Session cookies - only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a web site or a browser session) and expire when you close the browser. These cookies are required for site functionality.

Performance cookies - utilized by third party partners or service providers may be used in order to help us continuously improve site performance and provide reporting to our Customers. For example, Loop partners with Google Analytics to collect data on site usage. This information is collected through the use of performance cookies which aggregate and anonymize all data, and no personally identifiable data is involved.

Managing cookies: You can opt out of the use of cookies at any time, however this may limit the functionality of our Loop services, and your overall user experience. As a result, your customized settings (including login information) may not be retained, and there may be some Loop features you are unable to access. Such features could include your ability to efficiently work through a job application, or to register for one of our Customer’s Talent Networks to receive job alerts that may be of interest based on your stated preferences.

To opt out of cookie use, you can set your browser to reject cookies. Please visit the ‘Help’ menu of your Internet browser for instructions.

To opt-out of Google Analytics, please go to: Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.

Third party cookies and tracking tools are not under our control, are not covered by our cookie policy or privacy statement, and are therefore subject to their own policies.
