CA Applicant Privacy Notice

Job applicants residing in California may opt to review our practices relating to the handling of their personal information.

In this California Applicant Privacy Notice (the “CA Applicant Notice”), LogicMonitor (“we”,”our” or “us”) describes our collection and use of certain personal information relating to individuals that apply for jobs with us (“Applicants”) as required under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). We may provide you with additional notices about our data collection practices that are covered by other laws (e.g., if we conduct a background check). Please note that this CA Applicant Notice also does not cover any information that we may collect about you in your capacity as a customer with us, which are addressed in our website privacy policy.

What is personal information?

In this CA Applicant Notice, “personal information” is any information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular California resident or household.

Are our practices the same for all Applicants?

The categories of personal information we collect about you may vary based upon the position for which you are applying. The information in this Applicant Notice is intended to provide an overall description of our collection of information about Applicants.

Categories of Personal Information Collected

When you apply for a position with us, we request your contact information, a resume, and, depending upon the position, certain additional information. The CCPA has grouped specific types of personal information into categories; below, we have set forth the type of personal information that we collect from you as set forth per the categories established in the CCPA.

  • Name, Contact Info and other Identifiers: identifiers such as a real name, alias, postal address, unique personal identifier, online identifier, Internet Protocol address, email address, or other similar identifiers.
  • Usage Data: if you apply online, we may collect information about your browsing history on the job site and internet or other electronic network activity information, including, but not limited to, the referring URL or website that lead you to our website.

We do not typically associate this information with you or your employment record.
  • Profiles/Inferences/Testing: As part of your application process, we may ask you to submit to a cognitive assessment, and we will receive the results of that assessment. In addition, where permitted by applicable law, once you receive an offer, we may also ask you to submit to a drug test. Depending on your position, we will receive the pass/fail, or detailed, results of that test.
