This Privacy Statement sets forth the online data collection and usage policies and practices that apply to the ClearedJobs.Net Web Site and does not apply to information we collect in any other fashion.

Your data will be stored and processed in whole or in part in the United States. ClearedJobs.Net assures any information collected online is used responsibly and appropriately.

The ClearedJobs.Net site may 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 Site. 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.

Collection and Use of Information by ClearedJobs.Net

In some areas of ClearedJobs.Net, we request or may request that you provide personal information, including your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number 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, title and clearance level. Sometimes we collect or may collect a combination of the two types of information. Examples of areas on the ClearedJobs.Net site where we collect personal or combined personal and demographic data are pages where you can open an account, create a ClearedJobs.Net profile, register to attend a job fair, or post a resume or job.

We also gather or may gather certain information about your use of ClearedJobs.Net 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 afford you the opportunity to provide descriptive, cultural, behavioral, 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 services.

If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about the ClearedJobs.Net site 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 ClearedJobs.Net site or view the job posting. We do not store this information.

Our Use of Your Information

We use the information we gather on ClearedJobs.Net whether personal, demographic, collective or technical, for the purpose of operating and improving the ClearedJobs.Net site, 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.

The nature and frequency of these messages will vary depending upon the information we have about you.

In addition, you may receive free informational newsletters from us relating to topics that may be of special interest to you, such as career management advice.
We have areas on the ClearedJobs.Net site 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.

Choices Regarding the Disclosure of Personal Information to Others

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

1. We disclose information to third parties if you consent to such disclosure. For example, if you indicate that you would like to receive information about the opportunities, products or services of third parties at the time you register for a ClearedJobs.Net account, we supply your contact information to third parties such as employers who have purchased the ability to view resumes, recruiters, event coordinators, marketers or others for the purpose of sending you e-mail or otherwise communicating with you. We use data we have about you (such as the interests and preferences you have expressed) to determine whether you might be interested in the opportunities, products or services of a particular third-party.

2. We disclose information to companies and individuals we employ to perform functions on our behalf. Examples 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 may not share that information with any other third party.

3. We disclose 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 legal process; (b) protect our rights or property; (c) prevent a crime or protect national security; or (d) protect the personal safety of users or the public.

4. We disclose and transfer information to a third party who acquires all or a substantial portion of our business, whether such acquisition is by way of merger, consolidation or purchase of all or a substantial portion of our assets. In addition, in the event we become the subject of a bankruptcy proceeding, whether voluntary or involuntary, we or our trustee in bankruptcy may sell, license or otherwise dispose of such information in a transaction approved by the bankruptcy court. You will be notified of sale of all or a substantial portion of our business to a third party via email or through a prominent notice posted on the ClearedJobs.Net site.

Other Uses of Information

We also share aggregated anonymous information about visitors to ClearedJobs.Net with its clients, partners and other third parties so that they can understand the kinds of visitors to the ClearedJobs.Net site and how those visitors use the ClearedJobs.Net site. We may also aggregate on an anonymous basis data regarding job qualifications, schooling, age, experience level or other information relevant to the job search or competition among Seekers for any such job. Such data may be made available to employers or fellow job seekers.

Information gathered on a page in a featured Employer Site or on a co-branded page (such as that of a contest co-sponsored by ClearedJobs.Net and another company), may become the property of the other company or of both us and the other company. In that instance, the use of such information by the other company will be subject to the privacy policy of that company. We are not responsible for that company's use of your personal or demographic information.

If you apply for a position on ClearedJobs.Net, 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. You should understand that if provided, this information will be used by employers only in accordance with applicable law and will not be used in making any negative employment decisions. 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.

Personal Information on Resumes and Profiles

Since ClearedJobs.Net is a career site, we give you three options regarding the accessibility of your resume:

1. You can store your resume in our database, but not allow it to be searchable by potential employers. Not allowing your resume to be searchable means that you can use it to apply for a job online, but employers and recruiters will not have access to search it through our resume database product.

2. If you allow your resume to be searchable without making it confidential and hiding your contact information, then all parties with access to our searchable resume database (or copies thereof) will have access to your resume.

3. If you have a confidential resume, but apply to a job posting on ClearedJobs.Net, the employer to whom you send your resume will be able to view your contact information.
In addition, portions of your searchable resume (but not your contact information) may be made public in your ClearedJobs.Net profile.

We make every possible effort to limit access to our searchable resume database (or copies thereof) only to subscribing facilities cleared employers, recruiters, hiring managers, and human resource professionals, as well as law enforcement and national security agencies, but cannot guarantee that other parties will not gain access to this database. We are not responsible for the use made of resumes by third parties who access such resumes while they are in our searchable database. However, the portions of your searchable resume (not your contact information) that are automatically made public in your ClearedJobs.Net profile are accessible to anyone who uses the

ClearedJobs.Net service. You may remove your resume on ClearedJobs.Net or delete your profile on ClearedJobs.Net at anytime, but, employers, recruiters and others who have paid for access to the ClearedJobs.Net resume database or to obtain a copy of that database or have paid for access to the ClearedJobs.Net services, as well as parties who have otherwise gained access may have retained a copy of your resume or ClearedJobs.Net profile in their own files or databases. We are not responsible for the retention, use or privacy of resumes or profiles in these instances.

Posting to Public Areas of ClearedJobs.Net

Please remember that if you post any of your personal information in public areas of ClearedJobs.Net, such as in online forums or chat rooms, or in the ClearedJobs.Net 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 ClearedJobs.Net.
