We at Jobdango are committed
to good privacy practices regarding your personal
information. Your loyalty as a job seeker, customer
or visitor is important, and we hope that our concerns
regarding your privacy, as described in this policy
demonstrate our commitment to making your experience
with Jobdango an enjoyable and satisfying one.
Although Jobdango respects the privacy of all those who visit our Web sites
and use our online services, we do collect information from our visitors,
with the Jobdango web site and your registration for and use of Jobdango's
online services (collectively, the "Services"). Except as set
and other published guidelines, we do not release personally identifiable
information about our members and visitors without their permission.
Note that, by using the Services, you signify your agreement to this Privacy
Policy. If you do not agree to this Policy, please do not use the Services.
Your continued use of the Services subsequent to changes to this Policy
will mean that you accept the changes; therefore, please bookmark this
page and review it periodically.
A. The information we gather
Jobdango gathers two types of information about users:
1. Non-personally identifiable information (information that does not identify
a specific individual): When visitors use the Services, we collect and
aggregate information indicating, among other things, which pages were
visited, the order in which they were visited, and which links were "clicked." Collecting
such information involves the collection and logging of IP addresses, operating
system, and browser software used by each user of the Services. Although
such information is not personally identifiable, we can determine from
the IP address a visitor's Internet Service Provider and the geographic
location of his or her point of connectivity.
The non-personally identifiable information we collect helps us identify
the most popular areas of our web site and determine the effectiveness
of our promotional activities. In addition, we may disclose some of this
information to advertisers to inform them of the number of people who have
seen and/or clicked through their advertisements.
We collect non-personally identifiable information in part through the
use of "cookies" - that is, small text files placed on your computer's
hard drive - that help us determine the type of content and pages to which
you link, the length of time you spend at any particular area of the Services,
and the Services you choose to use. Cookies also tell us which advertisements
you have seen on our Services, allowing us to continue to provide many
of these Services at little or no cost to you. Essentially, cookies are
your identification cards for the Jobdango computers or servers that placed
them there. Cookies are only read by the server that placed them, and are
unable to execute any code or virus; they will not permit a Web site operator
to learn any personally identifiable information (see below) about you
unless you have previously provided that information to the Web site operator
or you have set the preferences in your browser to provide this information.
Cookies allow Jobdango to serve you better and more efficiently, and to
personalize your experience with the Services - for example, by allowing
us to save your password so that you do not have to reenter it each time
you use the Services. Nevertheless, you should be able to control how and
whether cookies will be accepted by your web browser. For more information
on how to do so, please refer to the documentation accompanying your browser.
Please note that our advertisers and their designees, as well as other
third parties, may collect information about you through cookies or other
technologies when they serve advertisements through the Services or when
you visit their Web site(s). Additionally, the Services contain links to
other third party Web sites, including co-branded or other affiliated sites
which may or may not be owned or operated by or in conjunction with Jobdango.
You acknowledge that we do not monitor or control the information collection
or privacy practices of any third parties, and are not responsible for
their practices or the content of their web sites, including their use
of any information (such as IP number, browser type, or operating system)
collected when visitors or Members "click through" links to their
sites or view advertisements served by them. Even though certain information
collected by such third parties might not identify you personally, we strongly
encourage you to become familiar with their privacy practices, and to contact
such third parties if you have any questions about their respective privacy
2. Personally identifiable information: In certain areas of the Services
- such as those in which you Announce Availability, complete a profile,
submit your résumé, create a new account, or enter Jobdango-sponsored
contests or promotions - we may request that you provide us with certain
personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name,
zip code, profession, or work experience. We will, in such situations,
seek to identify which informational items are required and which are optional.
Job seekers should post profiles and resumes on Jobdango
only if they wish such information to be viewed by Jobdango's
customers. At any time, job seekers may elect that their
profile and resume not be searchable by Jobdango's customers
by logging into their account and changing the status
of their profile or, if that is not possible, they may
contact Jobdango and we will make the change for them.
In addition, job seekers may elect to make their profile
searchable by Jobdango customers on a confidential basis
only. In this case, the user's name, contact information
and resume will not be displayed to customers performing
searches on Jobdango. If the customer desires to contact
the confidential job seeker regarding an employment opportunity,
they will send an email to the job seeker through the
Jobdango system. Jobdango will forward the email to the
seeker's email address. The seeker's email address will
not be provided directly to the customer.
The Services are not available to children under 15 years of age. We do
not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children
under 15 years of age.
Please note that Jobdango cannot control the acts of users of the Services.
All members and visitors should be aware that, when they disclose personally
identifiable information in a resume or profile or other medium, the information
may be collected and used by others to send that person unsolicited email
from other parties outside Jobdango. In the event that you encounter any
Jobdango user who is improperly collecting or using information about you
or other users, please contact us.
B. How we use (and do not use) the information
Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the different ways we
use the information we gather. Keep in mind that, while Jobdango encourages
all third parties involved - including but not limited to its advertisers
- to adhere to our policies regarding the privacy of our visitors and members
and to otherwise handle personal information in a responsible manner, we
cannot and do not assume any responsibility for any actions or omissions
of third parties, including the manner in which they use information received
either from Jobdango or independently. Nevertheless, in the event you encounter
any third party associated with, or who claims association with Jobdango,
who you feel is improperly collecting or using information about you, please
contact us. We will be happy to forward your message
to the third party or contact the third party on your behalf.
1. How we use (and do not use) non-personally identifiable information:
We use non-personally identifiable information in aggregate form to build
higher quality, more useful Services by performing statistical analyses
of the collective characteristics and behavior of our visitors and members,
and by measuring demographics and interests regarding specific areas of
the Services. We may provide statistical information based on this data
to advertisers and other current and potential business partners. We may
also use the aggregate data to inform these third parties as to the number
of people who have seen and clicked through links to their sites.
2. How we use (and do not use) personally identifiable information: Jobdango
does not sell, re-sell or distribute for re-sale your personally identifiable
information. Jobdango's customers may only use the information provided
in resumes and profiles of job seekers to evaluate seekers' qualifications
for the customer's open job opportunities. Job seekers should be aware,
however, that Jobdango has no way to control how a customer actually uses
the service and how they use the resume and profile information. If you
believe a Jobdango customer is using personally identifiable information
inappropriately, please contact us.
Please note that Jobdango reserves the right to disclose information submitted
by or concerning any visitor or member as we reasonably feel is necessary
to protect our systems or business. Specifically, but without limitation,
we reserve the right to disclose such information when a visitor or member
(or is reasonably suspected of partaking) in any harmful, infringing or
illegal activity, even without a subpoena, warrant, or other court order,
and to disclose such information in response to court and governmental
orders, civil subpoenas, discovery requests, and as otherwise required
by law, as well as in response to allegations of infringement. We cooperate
with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who may be using our
servers or services for illegal activities. We also reserve the right to
report any suspected illegal activity to law enforcement for investigation
or prosecution, or to suspend or terminate your membership in connection
with any suspected illegal or infringing activity. Finally, Jobdango reserves
the right to assign, sell, license, or otherwise transfer to a third party
your personally identifiable information in connection with an assignment,
sale, joint venture, or other transfer or disposition of any portion or
all of Jobdango's or its affiliated entities' assets or stock.
Subject to the foregoing, Jobdango uses your personally identifying information
in several ways:
- to customize various aspects of the Services to your preferences;
- to determine which advertisements or sponsor messages will appear
on your screen;
- to send to you Jobdango solicitations, product announcements, and
the like that we feel may be of interest to you (you may "opt
out" of receiving these materials, as provided below);
- to send to you certain e-mail messages that are critical to your
use and success with our Services, such as system status updates, new
job updates or order confirmations (because these messages contain
important information, you may not be able to "opt out" of
receiving such messages);
- to "pre-populate" forms that are displayed for the purpose
of collecting individual data by Jobdango and/or its sponsors (in no
case will pre-populating a form automatically transfer any data to
an advertiser or other third party - only if you voluntarily request
that such data be transferred will any such transfer take place, e.g.,
by clicking the "Submit" button); and
- as may be necessary to support the operation of the Services, such
as for billing, account maintenance, and record-keeping purposes.
In addition to the circumstances described above, Jobdango may disclose
your personally-identifiable information to third parties as follows:
- When a job seeker posts a profile or resume on Jobdango on a non-confidential
basis, such information will be shared with Jobdango's customers. (Note
that at any time, job seekers may elect that their profile and resume
not be searchable by Jobdango's customers by logging into their account
and changing the status of their profile or they may contact Jobdango and we will make the change for them.)
- When a job seeker elects to make his or her profile searchable by
Jobdango customers on a confidential basis only, the user's name, contact
information and resume will not be displayed to customers performing
searches on Jobdango. If the customer desires to contact the confidential
job seeker regarding an employment opportunity, it will send an email
to the job seeker through the Jobdango system. Jobdango will forward
the email to the seeker's email address. The seeker's email address
will not be provided directly to the customer.
- If you "opt in" to receive promotional materials (see below),
information you have made available to Jobdango may be made available
to third parties who provide goods or services that we believe may
be of interest to you.
- If you provide us with your credit card information, we will not
release that information to third parties unless necessary to complete
a transaction between you and such a third party. Credit card transactions
are handled by a third-party financial institution, which receives
the credit card number and other personal identifying information only
to verify the credit card numbers and process transactions.
- All information made available to Jobdango may be made available
to our contractors and consultants, and professional advisors (such
as attorneys or accountants), but only to the extent necessary for
them to perform services on our behalf, and only under a duty of confidentiality.
3. "Opting In": You may choose to "opt in" to receive
promotional materials from Jobdango and/or its affiliates, advertisers,
or other business partners. You will be given the opportunity to "opt
in" to receive such materials at every point at which we collect
personally identifiable information through the Services. You may change
your "opt in" status or "opt out" with respect to
such materials at any time by contacting us. You may also contact those
third parties directly.
C. Surveys and Sweepstakes
Occasionally, Jobdango may conduct surveys in order to better deliver
advertisements and content and to better understand your needs relating
to the Services. We will not share your survey information with any third
party, except in aggregate form. In addition, if and when we sponsor
sweepstakes or other promotions, or third parties sponsor such promotions
in conjunction with us, either the third party or we will post relevant
privacy information in the official rules and/or registration area for
the sweepstakes or promotion. That privacy information, to the extent
it conflicts with this Policy, will govern that particular promotion
or sweepstakes - please remember to read it carefully.
Deleting or correcting
If you would like to have your personally identifiable information removed
from Jobdango's database, or would like to correct an error in such information,
please contact us, and we will use reasonable efforts to comply with
your request. Keep in mind, however, that there will be residual information
that will remain within Jobdango databases, access logs, and other records,
which may or may not contain such personally identifiable information.
The residual information will not be used for commercial purposes; however
Jobdango reserves the right, from time to time, to re-contact former
customers or users of Jobdango.
