When Do We Use or Disclose Your Information?

We only use or disclose personal information as reasonably required to facilitate the Authorized Purposes listed above.

We generally disclose information we gather from you through the Platform to the following types of third parties and as otherwise set forth in this Policy or as specifically authorized by you:


We may share your information with our account holding Platform recruiters and employers ("Employers"). These Employers may use your information to communicate with you directly, including for the purpose of offering or providing more information regarding potential career/employment opportunities. We may share with Employers your information, including, but not limited to, your name, telephone number, e-mail, country, Engagement Data, Profile Data and/or other information you provide us. In order to access your information on the Platform, Employers have agreed with us to access your personal information only in compliance with all their responsibilities under applicable privacy and data protection laws with respect to the collection, processing and storage of personal information, as well as to provide adequate protection of all individual's rights provided for under all applicable privacy and data protection laws. Despite our efforts, once an Employer has access to your information, we cannot prevent it from being used in a manner inconsistent with this Policy, the law, or your personal privacy and we cannot control the actions of Employers who we may share your information with. Therefore, we do not guarantee that unauthorized persons will not view your information that is shared with Employers. If you have specific privacy concerns regarding any particular Employer, we suggest reading the privacy policy documentation on their website, if available. BY SUBMITTING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO OR ENGAGING WITH THE PLATFORM, YOU CONSENT TO THE SHARING OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH EMPLOYERS.

Service Providers

In some cases, we may share personal information with third party service providers performing functions on our behalf, including, for example, vendors that provide information technology services, provide analytics or assessment services, or otherwise support the Platform.


DNA has a close working relationship between the affiliated companies within its corporate structure. Personal information may be shared between these organizations to facilitate the Authorized Purposes listed above in accordance with this Policy.

Laws and Legal Rights

We may disclose your information (including personally identifiable information) if we believe in good faith that we are required to do so in order to comply with an applicable statute, regulation, rule or law, a subpoena, a search warrant, a court or regulatory order, lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements, or other valid legal process. We may disclose personally identifiable information in special circumstances when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating a contract with us, to detect fraud, for assistance with a delinquent account, or to protect the safety and/or security of our users, the Platform or the general public.

Sale of Business

We reserve the right to transfer information to a third party in connection with a sale, merger or other transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of DNA or any of its affiliates, or a portion of DNA or any of its affiliates, or in connection with a strategic investment by a third party in DNA or its affiliates, or in the event that we discontinue our business or file a petition or have filed against us a petition in bankruptcy, reorganization or similar proceeding.

Third Parties Generally

We may provide to third parties non-personally identifiable information, including where such information is combined with similar information of other users of the Platform. For example, we might inform third parties regarding the number of unique users who use the Platform, the demographic breakdown of our users of the Platform, or the products and/or services purchased using the Platform and the vendors of such products and services. In addition to the above, when users use our Platform, third parties (including without limitation third-party analytics service providers and commercial partners) may directly collect personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information about our users' online activities over time and across different websites. The third parties to which we may provide or who may independently directly collect personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information may include providers of analytics services (including vendors, analytics services providers, and website tracking services), affiliates and other actual or potential commercial partners, and other similar parties. For greater clarity, we may disclose aggregated, non-personally identifiable information about individuals who use or access the Platform without restriction.

Safeguarding and Securing the Data

We are committed to securing your information and keeping it confidential. We have done all in our power to prevent data theft, unauthorized access, and disclosure by implementing the latest technologies and software, which help us safeguard all the information we collect online. We have in place reasonable policies, procedures and safeguards (including physical, technological and organizational measures) designed to protect the security of personal information under our control.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect individual's personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of personal information transmitted to our Platform or otherwise via the Internet. There is also some risk that others could find a way to thwart our security systems. As a result, while we strive to protect individual's personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security or privacy of any information individuals transmit to us, and such individuals do so at their own risk.

We make every reasonable effort to ensure that personal information is accurate and complete. This may involve requesting further information or updates from individuals. We rely on individuals to notify us if there is a change to their personal information that may affect their relationship with DNA.

The protection of personal information is of paramount concern to us, and we are prepared to take appropriate and timely steps in the event of any incidents involving personal information in accordance with applicable privacy laws. We retain personal information only as long as is reasonable to fulfill the purposes for which the information was collected, or for legal or business purposes.
