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.
