Welcome to www.kohlscareers.com.  By using the web site, its related subdomains and microsites, mobile web site and other tools and applications expressly linked to this Privacy Policy, if any (collectively, the “Site”)), you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy (“Policy”) and Kohl’s Corporation’s (and its affiliates’) use of your information as described in this Policy, and you expressly agree to comply with the Terms & Conditions of Site Use (“Terms of Use”).

 

SECURITY & PRIVACY

 

Please take a moment to read our Policy which explains what type of information is collected through the Site, how that information is used, to whom it is disclosed and how it is safeguarded.

 

TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT

 

When you visit the Site, we do not automatically collect personally identifiable or other personal information.  However, depending upon how you use this Site, you may choose to provide us with information about yourself, including personally identifiable information, such as:

 

  • Your Name;
  • Address;
  • Your E-mail Address;

  • Social Security Number;

  • Your Education Information;
  • Your Anticipated Graduation Date;
  • Degree Information;

HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION

 

We use the information you provide to us through this Site for purposes of determining your qualifications for employment and to potentially correspond with you.  

 

INFORMATION WE SHARE WITH THIRD PARTIES

 

We do not provide your personally identifiable information to anyone except as expressly authorized by you or to companies that provide support services to us for purposes of this Site and for purposes of determining your qualifications for employment. For example, we use Kenexa to host and maintain this Site on behalf of Kohl’s.

 

You should also be aware that we may disclose specific information about you if necessary to do so by law or based on our good faith belief that it is necessary to conform or comply with the law or is necessary to protect the users of our Site, the site or the public.

 

In the event that Kohl’s and/or its affiliates would merge with, acquire or be acquired by another business entity as well as (or portions through) an asset sale, some or all of the personal information collected about you could be shared, as well as retained by Kohl’s.  

 

SITE TRAFFIC INFORMATION

 

For the purpose of analyzing site traffic and improving this Site, we collect navigational information when you visit the various pages of our Site through a computer or mobile device. This information is largely anonymous because it does not directly identify you, but instead includes data such as, browser type and version, service-provider identification, IP address, the site from which you came, and the site to which you navigate. Because this type of information does not specifically personally or directly identify you, it is largely anonymous; however, we may associate this navigational information with your personal information if you provide it.  

 

COOKIES

 

We sometimes collect non-identifiable information from visits to our Site to help us provide better customer service. For example, we keep track of the domains from which people visit, and we also measure visitor activity, but we do so in ways that keep the information non-identifiable. This information is sometimes known as “clickstream data.”  Kohl’s and Kenexa may use this data to analyze trends and statistics and to help us provide better service. 

We collect non-identifiable information through the use of various technologies, including one called “cookies”. A cookie is a piece of data that a Web site can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your computer as an anonymous tag that identifies your computer but not you. Some Site pages use cookies or other technologies to better serve you when you return to the Site. You can set your browser to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. You can also set your browser to turn off cookies. If you do so, however, some Site pages may not work properly.  

 

WEB BEACONS

Site pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) that allow us to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. Web beacons are not used to access your personally identifiable information; they are a technique we use to compile aggregated statistics about our Site usage. Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the Web beacon resides. 

You may not decline web beacons, however, they can be rendered ineffective by declining all cookies or modifying your browser setting to notify you each time a cookie is tendered and permit you to accept or decline cookies on an individual basis.

 

CHILDREN UNDER 13

 

The Site, including its mobile applications and tools, if any, is not marketed to, and does not knowingly collect or maintain personal information from, children under the age of 13.  

 

LINKS

 

For your convenience, our Site may contain links to outside web sites. Kohl’s is not responsible for the web practices of those sites, and we expressly disclaim liability and responsibility for those links. Please view the respective privacy policies and terms of service provided on those sites if you have any questions about their web practices which Kohl’s has neither reviewed or endorsed.  

 

CHANGES IN POLICY

 

As we continue to offer new and different types of content and services, Kohl’s may modify our collection and use practices covered by this Policy. Should there be a material change to our information practices, it will be applied only to information collected on a going forward basis, and we will update this privacy policy statement. For this reason, Kohl’s encourages you to review this Policy statement each time you visit this Site.
