The social media site X announced that it will collect premium users’ biometric data for security and identification purposes.
However, the policy doesn’t include any details about the processes that the company will adopt to collect and retain these data.
X also announced that it may collect and use your Job Applications / Recommendations (such as your employment history, educational history, employment preferences, skills and abilities, job search activity and engagement, and so on). The social media platform will use the data to recommend potential jobs to the users, to share with potential employers when you apply for a job, to enable employers to find potential candidates, and to show users more relevant advertising.
