Overview

ResumeSpider is committed to respecting the privacy of our users. We strive to provide a safe, secure user experience. This Privacy Statement sets forth the online data collection and usage policies and practices that apply to our website. By using this site, you consent to the policies and practices described in this Statement.

Our site and responses to your resume distribution by employers and recruiters may contain links to other websites over which we have no control. ResumeSpider is not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of other websites to which you choose to link from our site. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of those other websites in order that you may understand how they collect, use and share your information. This Privacy Statement applies solely to the information we collect on this website and does not apply to information we collect in any other fashion.

Collection and Retention of Information

In some areas of our website, such as when you post a resume, purchase a product or service or open an employer / recruiter account, we may request that you provide personal information, including your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, credit card number, contact information, billing information and any other information from which your identity is discernible. In other areas, we collect, or may collect, demographic information that is not unique to you such as your zip code, age, preferences, gender, interests and favorites. Sometimes we collect or may collect a combination of these two types of information.

We also gather or may gather certain information about your use of our site, such as what areas you visit and what services you access. In addition, there is information about your computer hardware and software that we may collect. This information may include without limitation, your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses.

In order to maintain your accounts in an efficient manner, we retain all the information we gather about you in an effort to make your repeat use with us more efficient, practical, and relevant. You may correct or update your account profile and/or resume at any time. In addition, you may delete your resume from storage or close your employer / recruiter account at any time, in which event we will remove all our copies of your resume and account profile information, except for an archival copy, which is not accessible on the Internet.

Use of Information by ResumeSpider

We use the information we gather on the website, whether personal, demographic, collective or technical, for the purpose of operating and improving the website, fostering a positive user experience, and delivering the products and services that we offer.

We may also use the information we gather to inform you of other products or services available from ResumeSpider, its affiliated companies or co-branded partners, or to contact you about your opinion of current products and services or potential new products and services that may be offered.

We may use your contact information in order to send you e-mail or other communications regarding updates at the site. The nature and frequency of these messages will vary depending upon the information we have about you. In addition, at the time of registration, you have the option to elect to receive additional communications, information and promotions including without limitation free informational newsletters from ResumeSpider relating to topics that may be of special interest to you, such as career management advice.

We have an area where you can submit feedback. Any feedback you submit in this area becomes our property, and we can use such feedback (such as success stories) for marketing purposes or to contact you for further information.

Disclosure of Information to Others

We do not disclose to third parties your personal information, combined personal and demographic information or information about your use of the ResumeSpider website (such as the areas you visit or the services you access), except as set forth in the following subparagraphs.

  1. We may disclose such information to third parties if you consent to such disclosure. For example, if you indicate that you would like to receive information about the products or services of third parties at the time you register. We may supply your contact information to third parties, such as employers, recruiters, data aggregators, marketers or others for the purpose of sending you e-mail or otherwise communicating with you. We may use data we have about you (such as the interests and preferences you have expressed) to determine whether you might be interested in the products or services of a particular third party.
  2. We may disclose such information to companies and individuals we employ to perform functions on our behalf. Examples may include hosting our web servers, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. These companies and individuals will have access to your personal information as necessary to perform their functions, but they will not be allowed to share that information with any other third party.
  3. We may disclose such information if legally required to do so, if requested to do so by a governmental entity, or if we believe in good faith that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with the legal process; (b) protect the rights or property of ResumeSpider; (c) prevent a crime or protect national security; or (d) protect the personal safety of users or the public.
  4. We may disclose and transfer such information to a third party who acquires all or a substantial portion of ResumeSpider, Inc., whether such acquisition is by way of merger, consolidation or purchase of all or a substantial portion of our assets.

ResumeSpider may also share aggregated, anonymous information about visitors (for example, the number of visitors) with its clients, partners and other third parties so that they may understand the kinds of visitors that use the ResumeSpider site and how those visitors use the site.

Resumes

Since ResumeSpider is a career site, we give you the option of utilizing our service to distribute your resume to employers and search firms and to be searched by prospective employers / recruiters in our database. If you utilize our service, then all employers / recruiters who have access to our product may have access to your resume. We use our best efforts to grant access to this database only to recruiters, hiring managers, headhunters, and human resource professionals. However, we are not responsible if, in the rare event, some other third party, such as someone posing as the aforementioned, evades security measures and gains access to the service, and, subsequently, your resume. You may remove your resume from our searchable database at any time. However, employers / recruiters who have access to the resumes 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.

Use of Cookies

ResumeSpider uses “cookies” to help personalize your account, save you time, and maximize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard drive by a web page server. Cookies are not used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to your computer, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize ResumeSpider pages, or register for services, a cookie helps us to recall your specific information (such as user name, password and preferences). Because of our use of cookies, we can deliver faster and more accurate results and a more personalized site experience for you. When you return to the ResumeSpider site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, and you can more easily use the features that you customize. We also use cookies to track click streams and for load balancing.

You may have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline all cookies, if you prefer. Alternatively, you may be able to modify your browser setting to notify you each time a cookie is tendered and permit you to accept or decline cookies on an individual basis. If you choose to decline cookies, however, your site performance may be hindered, resulting in a negative experience on the ResumeSpider website.

Use of Web Beacons

ResumeSpider web pages may contain electronic images known as web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) that allow us to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. Web beacons are not used to access your personally identifiable information on ResumeSpider; they are a technique we use to compile aggregated statistics about our site usage.

Web beacons collect only a limited set of information, including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the Web beacon resides.

Updating Your Information

You may review, correct, update or change your account profile information at any time. Simply log into your account, review your account information and, if you wish, edit it with the options provided.

If you opted to receive newsletters, special offer e-mails or other communications from ResumeSpider or third parties at the time you registered, but subsequently change your mind, you may opt-out of your initial choice by editing your Account Profile as described above. If you previously opted not to receive such communications, you may later opt-in by editing your Account. We also provide an option to un-subscribe to certain services by clicking a link in the e-mail. It may take up to 10 days for a removal request to be processed.

Security

ResumeSpider has implemented reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes.

When you place an order online at ResumeSpider, your credit card information is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) protocol. SSL makes it difficult for your credit card information to be intercepted or stolen while being transmitted. ResumeSpider uses a service company to process its credit card transactions.
