This Privacy Statement sets forth the online data collection and usage policies and practices that apply to the CareerAge.com Web Sites (sometimes referred to herein as the "CareerAge.com Sites") and does not apply to information we collect in any other fashion.
Your data will be stored and processed in whole or in part on the servers located anywhere in the world. The information we gather on the CareerAge.com Sites may be shared within the CareerAge-affiliated companies on a worldwide basis in order to deliver the products and services we offer to employers such as searches for job seekers or in order to undertake analysis of our database such as aggregate profiling of our registered users. "Affiliated companies" means entities that control, are controlled by or are under common control with CareerAge.com.
The CareerAge.com Sites contain links to other Web sites over which we have no control. We are not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of other Web sites to which you choose to link from our Sites. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of those other Web sites so you can understand how they collect, use and share your information.
In some areas of CareerAge.com, we request or 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 age, preferences, gender, interests and favorites. Sometimes we collect or may collect a combination of the two types of information. Examples of areas on the CareerAge.com Sites where we collect personal or combined personal and demographic data are pages where you can open a CareerAge.com account, sign up to use a service, post a resume or purchase a product.
In addition, we may indirectly collect information about you when you use certain third party services available on CareerAge.com. For example, if you register on CareerAge.com by using your OpenID, such information will be subject to, and treated in accordance with, the policies and practices described in this Privacy Statement.
We may also gather or may not gather certain information about your use of CareerAge.com, such as what areas you visit and what services you access. Moreover, there is information about your computer hardware and software that is or may be collected by us. This information can include without limitation your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses, but is not linked to your personal information.
We may sometimes present you the opportunity to provide descriptive, cultural, preferential and/or life style information about yourself, but it is solely up to you whether you furnish such information. If you do provide such information, you are thereby consenting to the use of that information in accordance with the policies and practices described in this Privacy Statement. For example, such information may be used for the purpose of determining your potential interest in receiving e-mail or other communications about particular products or services.
If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about the CareerAge.com Sites or refer a job posting to a friend, we will ask you for your friend's name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the CareerAge.com Sites or view the job posting. We may store this information to invite them to use CareerAge.com services in future.
We use the information we gather on CareerAge.com, whether personal, demographic, collective or technical, for the purpose of operating and improving the CareerAge.com Sites, fostering a positive user experience, and delivering the products and services that we offer.
If you have provided consent for us to do so, we may also use the information we gather to inform you of other products or services available from us or our affiliated companies 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 CareerAge.com Sites or if we have any new information, service, article or job postings etc. which we think that it may be of interest to you. The nature and frequency of these messages will vary depending upon the information we have about you.
In addition, you shall be given the option to elect or not elect to receive additional communications, information and promotions, including without limitation, free informational newsletters from us relating to topics that may be of special interest to you, such as career management advice, as and when it is offered.
We have areas on the CareerAge.com Sites where you can submit feedback. Any feedback you submit in these areas becomes our property, and we can use such feedback (such as success stories) for marketing purposes or to contact you for further information.

If you apply for a position on CareerAge.com or through a Hosted Career Site, you may be asked to provide information on your gender, race or other protected status where permitted by applicable law. Some employers are required by law to gather this information from job applicants for reporting and record-keeping requirements.

All information provided will be kept separate from your expression of interest in any job opportunity. Providing this information is strictly voluntary and you will not be subject to any adverse action or treatment if you choose not to provide this information.

We are not responsible for the use made of resumes by third parties who access such resumes while they are in our searchable database. You may remove your resume on CareerAge.com at anytime, but, employers, recruiters and others who have paid for access to the CareerAge.com resume database or to obtain a copy of that database as well as parties who have otherwise gained access 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 or profiles in these instances.
Please remember that if you post any of your personal information in public areas of CareerAge.com such as in online forums or chat rooms, or in the CareerAge.com searchable resume database, such information may be collected and used by others over whom we have no control. We are not responsible for the use made by third parties of information you post or otherwise make available in public areas of CareerAge.com or CareerAge.com Networking.
