What Information About Me Is Collected and Stored?
We collect two basic types of information from you in conjunction with your use of the Site, Personal Information and Non-Personal Information. “Personal Information” is information that you may supply to us and can individually identify you, including your name, e-mail address, telephone number, postal address, credit card, billing and contact information, i.e., when you register for an account on the Site, upload content or participate in a community. “Non-Personal Information” is any information that does not personally identify you but may include tracking and usage information about your location, demographics, use of the Site and the Internet.
As a general matter, you can browse the Site without submitting your Personal Information to us. However, there are a number of circumstances in which you may supply us with your Personal Information. The following lists the most common ways in which we may collect your Personal Information:
- Registration for an account on the Site
- Creating your profile
- Uploading your resume, cover letters or other materials
- Applying for a posted job
- Participating in interactive services, including any materials submitted in connection with a training module
- Signing up to receive e-mail newsletters from us
- Requesting customer service or other assistance
- Participating in surveys, panels, or market research
- Participating in special events and promotions
- Entry in contests or sweepstakes
- Submission of user generated content on any part of the Site that permits it
- Any other place on the Site where you knowingly volunteer Personal Information
When you apply for a job through the Site or upload your resume to our resume database, employers will have access to that content. We have no control over the retention or use of your resume or profile by employers or third parties.
Collection of Personal Information From Social Media Sites
When you interact with any Site page or account on a social media platform, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, YouTube, or Pinterest, or use a social media feature such as Facebook’s “Like” button, we may collect the Personal or Non-Personal Information including your IP address, account ID or “handle.” However, we will comply with the privacy policies of the corresponding social media platform and will only collect and store such Personal Information that we are permitted to collect by these social media platforms.
In addition, when you interact with the Site, our servers may keep an activity log of Non-Personal Information. Generally, we collect and store the following categories of Non-Personal Information:
- Demographic data such as age, gender and five digit zip code as part of collecting personal information
- Device information about your computer, mobile device, or other device that you use to access the Site. This information may include IP address, geolocation information, unique device identifiers, browser type, browser language and other transactional information
- Usage information about your use of the Site. This information includes a reading history of the pages you view. We use this information to provide you with a more customized experience on the Site
- Additional “traffic data” such as time of access, date of access, software crash reports, session identification number, access times and referring website addresses

In addition, in some cases the Site can deliver content based on your current location if you choose to enable that feature. If you enable that feature, your current location will be stored locally on your device which will be used by the Site to serve you certain content tied to your location. If you elect to have your location-based searches saved to your history, we will store such information on our servers.
Collection of Personal and Non-Personal Information From Other Sources
We also may collect and store information about you that we receive from other sources to, among other things, enable us to update and correct the information contained in our database and to better customize your experience on the Site.

We do not collect Personal Information, such as names, e-mail addresses and phone numbers through such web beacons without your express permission.
We may work with third-party advertising companies who also may utilize flash or enhanced cookies or web beacons to better provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you.

They may, however, anonymously track your Internet usage across other websites in their networks beyond this Site.

- Comply with a legal obligation.
- Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:
Calling us at 855-765-8080.
Only you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.
Response Timing and Format
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request's receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:
Deny you goods or services.
Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
