Please review this Privacy Policy periodically as we may update it from time to time to reflect changes in our data practices.  We will post a prominent notice on our Sites to notify you of any significant changes to our Privacy Policy and indicate at the bottom of the notice when it was most recently updated.  If we make material changes to the policy that will adversely affect previously collected Personal Information, you will be notified and provided an opportunity to consent to the different practices specified in the updated Privacy Policy.  If you do not consent, you may delete your account and stop visiting or using the Sites.  Your continued use of the Sites after we publish or send a notice about our changes to this Privacy Policy means that you are consenting to the updated Privacy Policy.

Information We Collect

CareerKeeper collects Personal Information in a fair and lawful way, for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy. The types of information we generally may obtain can include:

 

We may obtain information about you from various sources, including directly from you via our Sites, when you call or email us or communicate with us through social media, or when you participate in events, contests or other promotions.  We also may obtain information about you from our parent, affiliate or subsidiary companies, business partners and other third parties, as well as from publicly available information.

Many people invest significant time and energy to promote their professional reputation through public forums on the Internet.  We gather information relevant to your career history and work experience from these widely dispersed publicly available sources, including social media sites you may be part of, forming a “Profile.”  Although we may generate a Profile about you based on publicly available information even if you do not have a CareerKeeper account, we also will include the information that you provide to us via your CareerKeeper account.  Use of these Profiles are limited to recruitment lead generation and may not be used for determinations about employment or other eligibility. If you would prefer that we not compile and make this information available to recruiters, you can opt-out of this service at any time by emailing support@careerkeeper.com.

You may be asked to enter information directly, or we can automatically collect it by syncing to your social media profiles.  We request this information so that we may automate completion of registration forms or job applications with information stored in your social media profile.  In addition, when you visit our Sites, we may collect certain information by automated means, such as cookies and web beacons or as provided to the app by your device’s operating system, as described in more detail below.  The information we may collect automatically via the Sites can include:

CareerKeeper only uses your Personal Information that is necessary for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, or as permitted by law. If we seek to use the information we obtain about you in other ways, we will provide specific notice and request your consent at the time of collection.

Information We Share

In addition, Personal Information we have collected may be passed on to a third party in the event of a transfer of ownership or assets or a bankruptcy or other corporate reorganization of CareerKeeper.

Analytics

We may combine certain non-personally identifiable Statisitcal Data, or otherwise anonymized or de-identified data about our users and use such data to prepare reports for our users (typically recruiters or educators).  “Statistical Data” is the demographic information (such as zip code, age, gender, race or ethnicity) and employment information (such as occupation, education and experience) of many individuals that is combined together.  Statistical Data is used to analyze the characteristics of various populations and does not identify any specific individuals.  We may also use and share anonymized or de-identified data to track trends in the labor market as well as use of our products and services.  Some Statistical Data analytics reports can be used to better understand individual Profiles.

We also use third party analytics services to help better understand the use of our sites, which is further described in the Cookies section below.

Privacy Options for Work Win Database

We attempt to limit access to our databases to legitimate users, but cannot guarantee that other parties will not gain access to these databases.  While we limit access and use of information from our products and services in our Terms and Conditions, we cannot control the use of information by third parties once they obtain that information from our products and services or other publicly available sources.  Accordingly, you should not put information you would not want made public in your work wins or to a public website.

Please be advised that, even in the event of a successful account or Profile deletion parties who have otherwise gained access to our databases may have retained a copy of your resume or Profile information in their own files or databases.  We cannot control the retention, use or privacy of shared work wins or Profiles that have been downloaded by third parties, and, you will not be able to delete data held by third parties that already have accessed and downloaded your Profile information or resume.  In addition, we will retain anonymous  Statistical Data for uses described in this privacy policy.

Please allow up to thirty days to process your account or Profile deletion request.

About Cookies, Tracking Choices, and Third Party Advertisers

A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor‘s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser.  A “web beacon,” is also called a Web bug or a pixel tag or a clear GIF. Used in combination with cookies, a Web beacon is an often-transparent graphic image, usually no larger than 1 pixel x 1 pixel, that is placed on a website or in an e-mail that is used to monitor the behavior of the user visiting the Web site or sending the e-mail.

CareerKeeper uses cookies and other similar technologies for the convenience of our users.  Cookies enable us to serve secure pages to our users without asking them to sign in repeatedly.  CareerKeeper also uses cookies to store non-personally identifying information about you such as past jobs viewed and job searches conducted by your computer in a cookie that it places on your computer.  We do this in order to present you with job recommendations based on your interests as expressed previously through your searches.  Lastly, CareerKeeper uses cookies to ensure the proper functioning and efficiency of our Sites.  Most Internet browsers enable you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored.  Please be aware, however, that some CareerKeeper features or services may not function properly without cookies.

CareerKeeper permits third party cookies on its Sites.  For example, third party tools located on the Sites, including those that allow for social media sharing, may use cookies to remember user preference settings.  CareerKeeper also uses web analytics services provided by third parties, which use cookies to collect non-personal information about details of our users’ visits to the Sites (including IP addresses) and the resources they access on the Sites.  These third party web analytics services provide us with reports based on this information in order to help us understand how visitors engage with the Sites.  

We use third-party advertising companies who may place or access cookies on your computer hard drive to distinguish your web browser uniquely and to keep track of information relating to serving ads on your web browser, such as the type of ads shown and the webs pages on which the ads appeared.  These companies may use information about your visits to these Sites and to other sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you on our Sites or on other, third party, sites.  We also may give third party advertisers the ability to tailor their advertisements on our Sites using demographic and preference information we provide to them in aggregate form.  This information does not identify you individually.

These companies operate under their own privacy policies and CareerKeeper encourages you to be aware of the privacy policies of such companies.  CareerKeeper does not have control over or access to any information contained in the cookies that are set on your computer by third party advertisers.

Our Site does not respond to web browser “do not track” signals.  However, to help prevent and limit the automatic collection of information by any participating third party advertisers, including the collection of personally identifiable information about an individual’s online activities over time and across third-party Web sites or online services, you may opt-out of such collection by clicking the Ad Choices icon located within the ad, by accessing the “about ads” opt-out site, or by accessing the NAI opt-out site.  Please note that this opt-out is cookie-based.  If you buy a new computer, change web browsers or delete this cookie, you will need to perform the opt-out task again.  To obtain instructions regarding deleting or disabling cookies from third party advertising companies that are not members of the About Ads or NAI self-regulatory behavioral ad opt-out groups, please click here.

Some Important Tips To Use When Adding Work Wins

You should use your own careful judgment about whether and what information to add to work wins.

DO NOT PUT SENSITIVE INFORMATION, such as your Social Security number, on a work win.

If restricted or prohibited by the local laws in the jurisdiction where you reside, do not provide CareerKeeper, or otherwise include in your work wins other sensitive information that reveals racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade-union membership, health or sex life, genetic or biometric data, the commission of criminal offences or proceedings or unlawful or objectionable conduct and associated penalties or fines.

CareerKeeper’s Sites are open to the public, and we cannot guarantee that all users of our services have a legitimate need to the information they seek.

Do not provide your social security number, national identification number or any state, provincial or other local identification number to any third party via online application.  Identity thieves may attempt to trick you into providing sensitive information.  Do not provide any non-work related personal information (i.e., your social security number or any other state or national identification number, eye color, marital status, etc.) over the phone or online.

Job seekers should never provide credit card or bank numbers or engage in a monetary transaction of any sort.

Be cautious when dealing with contacts outside of your own country.

California, USA Residents

California law permits its residents to request and receive information about a business’ disclosure of certain categories of Personal Information to other companies for their use in direct marketing.  If you are a California resident and a user of any of the Sites, you can request a copy of this information from CareerKeeper by sending an email to the support@careerkeeper.com.
