Your Rights And Choices 

You may have certain rights and choices regarding our processing of your personal information.  Depending on your jurisdiction, applicable law may entitle you to additional consumer rights, including the right to:

  • Know the categories and/or specific pieces of personal information collected about you, including whether your personal information is sold or disclosed, and with whom your personal information was shared. 
  • Access a copy of the personal information we retain about you. 
  • Request deletion of your personal information.

To submit a request, please contact us via the email or toll free number provided in our “Contacting Us” section.  We reserve the right to verify your identity in connection with any requests regarding personal information to help ensure that we provide the information we maintain to the individuals to whom it pertains, and allow only those individuals or their authorized representatives to exercise rights with respect to that information.  If you are an authorized agent making a request on behalf of a consumer, we may require and request additional information to verify that you are authorized to make that request.

We reserve the right to deny your request if we cannot verify your identify. Where we deny your request in whole or in part, we will endeavor to inform of the denial, provide an explanation of our actions, and the reasons for the denial.  

We will not restrict or deny your access to our Services because of choices and requests you make in connection with your personal information.  Please note, however, certain choices may affect our ability to deliver the Services.  For example, if you request that we delete your information, recruiters will not be able to connect you with available placement opportunities.

Your account 

You may review, update, or modify your account information, including profile and contact information, by logging into your account.  You may delete your account by contacting us via the email or toll free number provided in our “Contacting Us” section.

Marketing 

You may unsubscribe from receiving marketing or other commercial emails from us by following the instructions included in the email.  However, even if you opt out of receiving such communications, we retain the right to send you non-marketing communications (such as information about changes to our Privacy Policy or Terms of Use).

Cookies

We, our service providers, and our business partners may also collect certain information about the use of our Services by automated means, such as cookies, web beacons and other technologies. Our Services also use third-party analysis and tracking services to track the performance of our Services, understand how you use our Services, and offer you an improved and safer experience.  Information on your usage of our Services may be collected and processed by us, or a third party engaged by us.  This information may be collected over time and across third-party websites.

Web browsers may offer users of our Services the ability to disable receiving certain types of cookies; however, if cookies are disabled, some features or functionality of our Services may not function correctly.   

Because there is not yet a consensus on how companies should respond to web browser-based do-not-track (“DNT”) mechanisms, we do not respond to web browser-based DNT signals at this time.

Links to Other Websites and Third Party Content

We may provide links to other websites, services, and applications that are not operated or controlled by us (the "Third Party Services").  This Privacy Policy does not apply to the Third Party Services.  While we attempt to facilitate access only to those Third Party Services that share our respect for your privacy, we cannot take responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of those Third Party Services.  We encourage you to review and understand the privacy practices of any Third Party Services before providing any information to or through them.  Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the Third Party Service that provides the feature.

International Data Transfers

We may transfer your personal information to countries other than the country in which you initially provided the information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.  For example, if you are located outside of the United States, we typically transfer and process all personal information in the United States, where we are headquartered.  The countries to which we transfer personal information may not guarantee the same level of protection for personal information as the one in which you reside.

How We Protect Information

We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal information we maintain against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use. 

Despite such efforts, however, please note that no company, including ours, can fully eliminate risks or guarantee the security of personal information.  Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of information about you at any time, and we bear no liability for uses or disclosures of personal information or other data arising in connection with theft of the information or other malicious actions. 

Data Retention

We retain personal information for as long as is necessary for the processing purpose(s) for which the information was collected, and any other permissible, related purpose.  When we no longer need the personal information we collect, we either aggregate or deidentify the information or securely destroy the information.

Children

The Service is not directed to individuals under the age of eighteen (18), and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 18.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

We may at any time in our sole discretion revise or update this Privacy Policy.  We will post any changes on this page and indicate at the top of this page the date this Privacy Policy was last revised.  You may read a current, effective copy of this Privacy Policy at any time by visiting this page.  We will also notify you of any material changes through reasonable means. Your continued use of our Services constitutes your acceptance of the terms of the Privacy Policy as amended or revised by us from the Effective Date.
