Glassdoor Updates

Glassdoor Updates Privacy and Cookie Policy

This is what the weekend is for

Since Glassdoor launched nearly 10 years ago, user privacy has been at the core of our business. As we continue to expand our offerings and grow our global footprint, today we updated our Privacy and Cookie Policy to make it unified across our domains and even more transparent and easy to understand.  

Like many companies, we are revising our Privacy and Cookie Policy now in part to comply with the European Union’s (EU) new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which goes into effect on May 25, 2018. The GDPR is new regulation designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens’ data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.  

Here’s a brief overview of the key changes:

  • We previously had separate policies for North America and our international sites. We have consolidated these into one global Privacy Policy for all Glassdoor domains.
  • We updated the Privacy Policy to comply with the new requirements under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into force on May 25, 2018.
  • We are rolling out a new Cookie Consent Tool to make it easier for you to manage and control the use of cookies our partners use to collect information to better tailor advertising to your interests, both on Glassdoor and beyond.
  • We’ve added more detail about some of the features we offer and how they make use of the information we collect.
  • We restructured some sections to make them more concise.

Our new Privacy and Cookie Policy becomes effective on May 30, 2018 provided that enhanced data protection rights in the Policy become effective on May 25, 2018 for all EU-resident users who are natural persons. If a user objects to the Policy after the effective date, the user may choose to close their account.

Given the above revisions are just highlights, we encourage you to read the fully updated Privacy and Cookie Policy to make sure you understand the changes.
