  1. Personal Data: Personal Data consists of all the personal information you or other users input into the Tools and that clients or vendors input or process about you, your employment, and any other information about you (other than the Contact Data) or other users.  It includes, without limitation, employment history and qualifications, resume, salary or hourly rates, tax information, employee reviews, and all other personal information (other than the Contact Data).  Your Personal Data is accessible only to us, to you, and to the client or vendor with whom your registration is associated.  We do not share it with third parties, but we may use Personal Data to make inferences that help us provide the Services.  We may use Personal Data in an aggregated format that is not identifiable to any individual, and that aggregated information belongs solely to us.  To the extent we are required to delete any Personal Data about you, we will still retain aggregated and anonymized information that may have originated as your Personal Data.

SHARING YOUR INFORMATION

 

We will share your Information as follows.

 

  1. At Your Instruction. One purpose of our Services is for users to share information related to their use of the Services with other users. Any information you share with other users about yourself may be used by those users for the purposes for which it was given.

 

  1. Sharing with Clients and Vendors. A major purpose of our Services is to allow our clients and vendors with whom your registration is associated to manage their workforces.  This involves collecting and managing information about certain users that may involve sensitive personal information, such as employment history, resume items, personal characteristics, salary and hourly rates, taxes, employee reviews, and other personal information.  This is information that would likely have been kept in physical files in the past but is now kept and processed electronically, and we may gather, store, and process this information using the Tools.  We require all users who have access to this information to keep it confidential and to use it solely in connection with the purposes for which the information was gathered.

 

  1. Third Party Offers. We may allow other companies to offer you products and services, including offers through our Services, co-branded pages hosted by the third parties, or via email. Whether or not you decide to participate in such an offer is up to you. If you purchase a product or service on a co-branded page, or via a third party offer on our Services that requires you to submit financial and personal information, you are also consenting to our delivery of this information to that party. The offer will notify you if any financial or personally identifiable information will be shared. Such third party will be authorized to use this information in keeping with our contractual relationship with them and in accordance with their own privacy policy and information practices.

We reserve the right to transfer that information in connection with such transactions without notice to you.

 

  1. Legal Disclosure.
