This Privacy Policy describes our collection, use and sharing of personal information, which members voluntarily provide to us.

1. Collection of Information

Personal

from the purpose, for which it was collected, then we will ask for your
consent prior to such use.

You may decline to submit personal
information to any of our services, in which case we may not be able to
provide such services to you.

Member profile. Your professional
profile is the information you decide to make available to other
members. Your member profile may include your member name, full name,
email address, telephone number, gender, and any other information that
you decide to make available. You control your member profile, and you
can access it in order to view, correct, add or remove personal and
public information.

Contact information. Your account name,
your email address, phone number and address is displayed to other
members in your public directory listing. Other members can contact you
using this information.

In some cases, you are also taking an action when you provide content

Access information. When you access
the site from a computer, mobile phone, or other device, we may collect
the information from that device about your browser type, location, and

preferences and tracking trends.

In the course of serving
advertisements or optimizing services for our members, we may allow
authorized third parties to place or recognize a unique cookie on your

will not be personal, but may indicate a general segment, e.g. your
industry or geographic location, your occupation, or information about
your professional and educational background, for greater customization
of your member experience.

Most browsers are initially set up
to accept cookies, but you can adjust your browser to block cookies or
to alert when a cookie is being sent.

Log files and information
about your computer. Due to the Internet communications standards, when
you visit our site we automatically receive the Uniform Resource

its operating system and the type of web browser it is using, email
patterns, as well as the name of your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
This information is used to analyze overall trends to help us improve

Sharing information with third
parties. We do not sell, rent, or otherwise transfer your personal
information to third parties for marketing purposes. We only share your
information with third parties to carry out your instructions or to
provide specific services or information. E.g., we may use a credit
card merchant company for subscription fees. Such third parties do not
retain, share, or store any personal information except to provide
their services, and they are bound by confidentiality agreements, which
limit their use of such information.

Sharing your resume with
third parties. Our searchable database of job postings and resumes
enables third parties, such as employers, recruiters, data collectors,
marketers and others, to see your personal information, and to contact
you. You have to be aware that these third parties may reside in
jurisdictions, which may not have adequate legal personal information
protection. We do not control these third parties, and we are not
responsible for their use of the personal information you make
available on our website. Therefore, you should avoid posting sensitive
information in your personal profile.

We share personal
information with third parties to help us in the delivery of our
services to you. However, we cannot disclose such information to third
parties unless you consent to such disclosure. E.g., if you make your
resume searchable, all parties with access to our searchable database
will have access to your resume. Or, if you indicate by configuring
your profile that you wish to receive information about the services of
third parties, we supply your contact information to these third
parties for the purpose of their communicating with you. We use the
information we have about you to determine, whether you might be
interested in the services of a third party.

You may control
the information and status of your resume. You may also remove your
resume from our database at any time by accessing your account.

Your

or ethnic origin, political views, religious beliefs, membership in a
social or political organization, physical or mental condition, harmful
addictions, sexual orientation and criminal record, unless you
intentionally wish that such information be present in your resume.
Your resume must not contain any information you do not wish to share
with a potential employer.

members who will see their advertisements, and we may use non-personal
information to select the appropriate audience for these advertisements.

Supplementing

from other members, to supplement your profile. In such cases, we leave
you an opportunity to remove that information or limit its visibility.

in market research including polls and surveys. The information you
provide for such purposes may be visible to other members of our
