Your Privacy on Dice

CCPA Privacy

A Word on Privacy from Our Management

Dice places data privacy at the heart of what we do. We fully welcome the California Privacy Rights Act of 2020 (the CPRA), the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act of 2021 and their aims to provide greater control to individuals over their personal information, along with enhancing transparency as to how this information is used.

At Dice, we continuously review our products, tools, email capture, and data storage practices, along with a policy review to ensure our services are fully aligned with all existing – and impending – privacy legislation. Our Compliance Team is responsible for ensuring that we continue to protect the personal information of clients and professionals who use our services by identifying the changes required for our business.

We invite you to review the information below and return to this page for ongoing updates on our privacy and data protection compliance.

CCPA Privacy

What is the current state of Privacy Legislation in the US?

As of January 1st 2023, two states in the US have ‘comprehensive’ consumer privacy laws in place: California (CPRA) and Virginia (VCDPA), with Colorado and Connecticut due to follow in July 2023. Other state laws are in various states of progress across the US, and Dice makes it a point of principle to continuously monitor the state of such laws, in order to maintain full compliance.

Who is affected by these laws?

At present, the rights provided by the CPRA and VCDPA only apply to people who live in these states, regardless of which state the organization processing their data is located in.

For Dice, the individuals covered by these Bills include job-seekers who registered themselves on our service, active and inactive employers who use or have used Dice services, and prospective employers who have not previously used our services but may do so in the future.

For individuals who reside outside a state covered by a privacy law, Dice has chosen to embrace the tenets of CCPA country-wide and apply them to users across the United States.

What types of information are defined as “personal information”?

“Personal information” is defined as anything that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could be reasonably linked, directly or indirectly, with an individual (or in California, a household). Such data may include personal identifiers like a name, location, links to online presence, contact information such as phone numbers or email addresses, or photos.

Generally, ‘publicly available data’ is exempt from the existing privacy laws.

How should companies communicate with individuals about their data protection?

Organizations now need inform consumers as to the categories of personal information to be collected and the purposes for which the categories of personal information shall be used, at or before the point of collection. Likewise, all organizations that collect personal information should include in their online privacy pages a description of a consumer’s rights and provide two or more designated methods for users to submit access requests, including a toll-free telephone number and a website address.

What rights do individuals now have?

Although the terminology and details may differ, current privacy legislation ensures the following rights for individuals:

(1) The right to know what personal information is being collected about them.

(2) The right to know whether their personal information is sold or disclosed and to whom.

(3) The right to opt out of the sale, sharing or ‘targeted advertising’ of their personal information.

(4) The right to access their personal information.

(5) The right to equal service and price, even if they exercise their privacy rights.

(6) The right to correct inaccuracies.

(7) The right to opt out of ‘automated decision-making’ or ‘profiling’ in certain circumstances.

For a more detailed explanation and information about current privacy legislation please visit:

  1. The website of the California Attorney General or the California Legislative Information site.
  2. The website of the Virginia Attorney General.

What are we doing at Dice to protect our users’ privacy?

In line with the transparency principles of the next generation of privacy legislation, we are ensuring that:

  • Information is communicated in a clear way that is understood by professionals and clients who use our services.
  • We clearly demonstrate how we collate and store personal information.
  • The personal information we hold is easily accessible should we be asked to provide evidence to processing data in a compliant manner.

What is Dice’s data minimization policy?

We will only hold personal information that is necessary to provide the services found on Dice. Any personal information that is not required will either be anonymised to make it non-personal or deleted.

What is Dice’s data retention policy?

Once any personal information reaches the appropriate retention period it will either be deleted or made non-personal via anonymization. For job-seeking professionals who registered themselves on Dice, personal information is kept for fifteen years and then deleted if they haven’t actively used the site in that time period. For those that are actively using the site, we’ll keep their data so long as there is active use. For employers and recruiters using Dice, personal information is kept for ten years, and efforts are made to delete as much information as possible while still maintaining sufficient data for audit, legal, and tax requirements.

How does Dice share personal information?

Like most online businesses, Dice has an extensive list of suppliers whose services are vital to us and with whom we may share your personal information. A comprehensive list of the categories of suppliers and third-parties we use can be found in our Privacy Policy here.

Beyond these suppliers and third-parties, we will only share personal information when we have the necessary right to do so. For instance,

Professionals & Candidates:
  • Resume profiles and other social media information made searchable on our candidate database;
  • When applying for a job via a job posting listed by one of our registered employers;
Employers & Recruiters:
  • Information displayed on job postings is shared with prospective candidates;
  • Personal information from employers beyond what is seen on job postings is not shared, and only used internally.

How does Dice protect personal information?

We have firewalls around the database and access to the information is protected by a combination of access controls and network layer protection such as multi-factor authentication, joiner/mover/leaver processes, password policies, logging, and monitoring. The network layer includes a combination of hardware firewalls and cloud security.

How can I check on the status of my personal information on Dice?
