Collection of your Personal Information

When you apply for a job, Brilliant collects the following personally identifiable information about you to provide the services you requested with your application: your email address, name, home or work address or telephone number. In addition, Brilliant collects any other personally identifiable information you include on your resume. If you use a third-party job board website, we will also collect personally identifiable information you have included on your profile for that website.

Additionally, when you apply for a job, Brilliant may contract with a third party to perform a background check on you as part of that application process. In the context of this background check, Brilliant will collect the following additional personally identifiable information: work history, education history, address history, date of birth, credit history, social security information, motor vehicle or driving records, and criminal history. Depending on where you live, you may have certain rights with regard to these background checks. Please review your Disclosure and Authorization in which you consent to disclosure for more information about any state-specific rights.

When you submit a form through our website, download resources, take surveys Brilliant sends you, and/or request information from Brilliant, we collect your name, email address and phone number to contact you in connection with these services.

Brilliant also automatically collects information about your computer hardware and software. This information may include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by Brilliant for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Brilliant website.

Brilliant may provide links to other websites such as news stories, links to its social media profiles, or integrated third-party tools. These features may collect information about your IP address and which page you are visiting on our website, and employ tracking technologies such as cookies. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policies of such third-party sites. Brilliant encourages you to review those privacy statements so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information.

Use of your Personal Information

Brilliant collects and uses your personal information to operate the Brilliant website and deliver the services you have requested, such as giving you information on employment opportunities. Brilliant also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you, via phone, email, or text, of other products or services available from Brilliant and its affiliates. Brilliant may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services, of potential new services that may be offered or for general information related to your hiring process, job search or other business matters.

Brilliant keeps track of the pages our customers visit on our website in order to conduct analytics and research to improve our site. For example, Brilliant uses this data to deliver customized content and advertising within Brilliant to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

When you apply for a job, we will share your personally identifiable information with potential employers, background-screening vendors, drug-screening vendors, payroll and onboarding vendors, and technology and software vendors who support our website functionality with your consent.

As discussed more fully below, when you visit our website “cookie” is stored within your web browser to track your behavior so that we can better understand your browsing habits.

In the event Brilliant undergoes a business transaction such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of our assets, your personally identifiable information may be among the assets transferred. Any acquirer of our assets may continue to process your personally identifiable information as set forth in this Statement of Privacy.

Brilliant will also share your information to protect the safety and legal rights of others. However, we will only do so when it is necessary to: (a) comply with law or legal process served on Brilliant or the website; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Brilliant; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Brilliant, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The Brilliant website uses "cookies" to help personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a webpage server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide convenience features to save you time. Cookies tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Brilliant pages, or register with the Brilliant website or services, a cookie helps Brilliant recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses and so on. When you return to the same Brilliant website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Brilliant features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Brilliant.

Do Not Track Signals

Some browsers have a Do Not Track (DNT) feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want your online activities tracked. When you choose to turn on the DNT setting in your browser, your browser sends a special signal to websites, ad networks, plug-in providers, and other web services you encounter while browsing to stop tracking your activity via cookies or other tracking technologies. Brilliant does not respond to DNT signals at this time.

Security of your Personal Information

Brilliant takes appropriate technical, physical and administrative measures to keep personal information secure.

Any personal information submitted or collected by Brilliant will be governed by the laws of the United States rather than another jurisdiction.
