Jobfinderusa.com Privacy Policy
Last updated on April 8, 2015 (Version: 4.0)

Any reference to “jobfinderusa.com”, "we", "us" and "our" is to JobFinderUSA. JobFinderUSA is committed to the responsible use of the personal information that you submit to us, and that it is used only for the purposes described below. We aim to provide a safe and secure experience for all of our users.

 

Why we collect personal information
JobFinderUSA collects personal information from its users in order to effectively provide access to private and secure areas of our website (‘the site’) to post and manage original content (such as job postings, resumes).

 

Your personal information

  • When you create a Job Seeker account with JobFinderUSA, upload a resume, set up a job alert, or enter a competition, we ask for information such as your name and email address.

 

  • When you create an Employer account with JobFinderUSA, we ask for information such as your name, email address, company name, employer type, address, phone number and website.

 

  • When you purchase a product or service, we ask for billing address and payment information.

As part of your membership on the site, you can fill out a short profile. You can classify your profile in two ways, depending on your privacy preference.

First, you can choose to hide your profile, including your resume, from all employers or from certain recruiters that you specify. If you have a profile that is hidden, your resume will not be searchable or viewable by employers and recruiters as described on the Your Profile page.

Alternatively, you can choose not to hide your profile so that your profile will be seen as submitted by you. If you have a profile that is not hidden, your resume will be viewable and searchable by employers and recruiters who pay for access to our resume databases products, and your profile, including the contact information within the profile, will be visible to employers and recruiters as described on the Your Profile page.

You have the ability to change the classification of your profile at any time by logging into your account, selecting Your Profile, and making your desired changes.

Please note that we try to grant access to this database only to paying employers, recruiters, hiring managers, headhunters, and human resource professionals, but cannot guarantee that other parties will not, without our consent, gain access to this database, or that paying employers will not forward your resume to another party. 

 

Updating Account Information
We allow you to change, correct, or delete your personal information at any time. To do so, simply log into your account, either click on your name or go to the Your Profile section, and you will find options for editing the information you have submitted. You may also update your marketing preferences under Your Account section at anytime.

You may hide or remove your resume from our searchable database at any time. However, employers and recruiters who have paid for access to the database, and other parties who have otherwise gained access to the database, may have retained a copy of your resume in their own files or databases. We are not responsible for the retention, use, or privacy of resumes in these instances, or for the use (or privacy) of resumes by any of such parties while resumes are in the database.

 

Disclosure
We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.

 

Payment
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Paypal stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.

All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our website and its service providers.

 

Third-party Services
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions. Once you leave our website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our website’s Terms of Service. 

 

Links
When you click on links on our website, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.

 

Security
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.

If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption.  Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
