We encourage people to participate in our communities but to be careful with personal information and follow good Internet safety processes.
1. What information is collected from me?
We collect and store the following types of information from users of our Sites: (i) information you voluntarily enter on our Sites or give us in any other way, including, but not limited to, “personally identifiable information” such as your name, address, e-mail address, phone number and resume, CVs or profile information; (ii) information we collect from you through the use of “cookies” (see paragraph 2 below); and (iii) information we receive from you via e-mail communications.
If you purchase a product or service from us, we will also collect financial information such as billing information and/or credit card details.
2. What are cookies and how are they used?
We may place Internet cookies on your hard drive. Cookies are small files that may be downloaded to your hard disk for record-keeping purposes. Among other things, cookies are used to: (i) remind us of who you are in order to deliver better service; (ii) estimate our audience size by determining repeat usage of our Sites to help target advertisements based on user interests and behavior; (iii) track your progress and entries in promotions, sweepstakes and contests, if any; and (iv) measure certain traffic patterns for use as a research tool to understand how our users’ habits are similar or different from one another. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. By not accepting cookies, some web pages may not display properly or you may not be permitted to access certain information. We also collect IP addresses (the Internet address of a computer) to track a user’s session. We analyze this data for certain trends in statistics, such as which parts of our Sites users are visiting and how long they spend there. In general, we do not link your IP addresses to anything personally identifiable to you.
The ads appearing on the Sites may be delivered by third party advertisers and use third party technology platforms. Certain information we collect from you, such as number of times you have viewed an ad (but not your name, address, or other personal information), may be used to serve ads to you. In the course of serving advertisements to you on the Sites, our third-party advertisers may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser, and we may share cookie information with third party technology providers.
3. How is my information used?
We want to help you quickly find information on the Sites and alert you to specific offers provided by us. Accordingly, we may send you direct mailings or contact you by telephone about our various products and services or other products and services we feel may be of interest to you. You may choose not to receive such mailings or telephone calls by the means provided for in the mailings or by contacting us at email@example.com.
We do research on our users’ demographics, interests and behavior based on the information provided to us during your use of our Sites. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis. Aggregated data does not include personally identifiable information. We may share this aggregated data with others.
We will release your personally identifiable information when we believe that such release is appropriate to (i) comply with the law; (ii) enforce or apply our Terms of Service and other agreements; or (iii) protect the rights, property or safety of us, our users or others. This includes, but is not limited to, exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection, credit risk protection and payment processing.
We attempt to limit access to our resume and profile database to legitimate users, but cannot guarantee that other parties will not gain access to this database. Once your resume has been disclosed, we are not able to retrieve it from the third parties who accessed it. Accordingly, you should not put sensitive information, personality profiles, or other information you would not want made public, in your resume or profile.
4. How can I access, update or delete my information?
You can request the individual information that we have collected about you, correct factual inaccuracies in your information, remove personal information from our databases and/or update your personal information by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
5. What else should I know about my privacy?
Third party Internet sites and services accessible through the Sites have separate privacy and data collection practices, independent of us. We have no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions. Please be careful and responsible online. If you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. While we strive to protect your information, we do not ensure or warrant the security of any information through the transmission process, and you transmit information to us at your own risk.
6.What about my children and their use of your Web Site?
The Sites are not for use by anyone under the age of 17, our minimum user age. To use the Sites, you agree that you are at least 17 years of age.
However, if local laws require that you must be older in order for us to lawfully provide the services in the Sites to you, then that older age shall apply as the applicable minimum user age in your location.
