Automating CCPA Compliance using Herefish

by on

Staying compliant with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) can feel like a full-time job, but it doesn’t have to be. Once you set up your compliance process through Herefish by Bullhorn, you can enjoy a fully automated process that’s always running in the background.

With Herefish by Bullhorn, your firm can collect initial consent, maintain ongoing consent, automatically share your privacy policy, and be certain that it is done for every candidate at the exact right time. And, thanks to a tight integration with Bullhorn ATS & CRM, Herefish is able to push everything into the consent module, so it will work perfectly with every other system.

  • Integrated: Herefish integrates directly into the consent section of your Bullhorn ATS & CRM. You can ensure that if consent is given or withdrawn, it will be stored properly making sure that any other system that leverages the data has it where it should be.
  • Automated: Herefish triggers messages to the right candidates at the right time to help you collect initial consent, share privacy policy, and log any changes. This happens automatically as soon as candidates are added or as time passes.
  • Compliant: You shouldn’t have to ask your team to take the additional time to make sure you remain in compliance. They’ve got better things to do and they aren’t guaranteed to get it right every time.
