1. COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
Information is collected from you, our customer, at several different points during your visit(s) to the LiveCareer Site.
Registration--Any information you provide before registering on our Site is not associated with you individually and is not retained by LiveCareer unless you register with us. If you decide to register with us, you are required to provide certain categories of information, such as name, e-mail address, a password, whether you are a student, employed, or in another category, date of birth, gender and country of citizenship. In addition, we require that you provide other categories of information, such as an area of study that interests you and career interests you have. For some products, you are required to provide other information in the form of uploaded documents as well as resume information, such as contact information, career objectives, employment history and job descriptions. LiveCareer asks for this information so that you are able to use and maximize the effectiveness of our career tools and have the best possible experience with LiveCareer.
Optional Information--At various other points during your visit to LiveCareer, you may be asked to provide information about yourself. For example, you may wish to sign up for information about online courses relevant to your career interests. The use of other services which require the input of additional information is completely voluntary on your part. You have the choice about whether to disclose the information necessary to use these features of our Site.
In addition, during your visit to our Site, you may be asked to provide feedback, ideas, suggestions, and/or proposals (“Contributions”) with regard to our products and services. Submission of Contributions is optional, although encouraged, as it allows LiveCareer to better address our users’ needs and continuously work towards improving our products and services. By submitting your Contributions, you acknowledge and agree that i) such Contributions do not contain confidential or proprietary information; ii) LiveCareer shall be entitled to use or disclose (or choose not to disclose) any such Contributions for any purpose, in any way, in any media worldwide; iii) you irrevocably assign to LiveCareer all rights to your Contributions; iv) LiveCareer is not under any obligation of confidentiality, express or implied, with respect to the Contributions; and v) you are not entitled to any compensation or reimbursement of any kind from LiveCareer under any circumstances for submission of your Contributions.
Passive Collection of Information--In addition to the information which you actively provide to LiveCareer by, for example, completing the registration form, LiveCareer collects information about how you interact with our Site. LiveCareer collects passive information for purposes such as improving a user's experience at the Site and the compilation of broad aggregate demographic data and related usage information for internal purposes and for disclosure to third parties such as advertisers and content partners. The types of passive information collected by this Site include, without limitation, your IP address, which type of browser you are using, how you came to our Site, where you go on our Site and how long you stay on any part of our Site. Passive information does not identify you to LiveCareer by name and LiveCareer does not link your IP address to your personally identifiable information. LiveCareer may use its own or third party cookies to collect this information and to enhance your experience on our Site. Cookies are an industry-standard and are small data files containing certain information written to your hard drive when you visit a website. You may opt to decline LiveCareer's or third party cookies, but this might impact the functionality of the Site and the quality of your experience with us.
Collection of Information from Children--LiveCareer abides by federal law and the guidelines set up by the Federal Trade Commission regarding youth privacy. As such, LiveCareer will not knowingly collect any personal information from or allow the registration of young people under the age of 14.
Tell-A-Friend Program--You can choose to let a friend, your parents, or your son/daughter know about LiveCareer through our Tell-A-Friend referral service. If you choose to use the Tell-A-Friend service, we will ask you for your friend/relative's name and e-mail address and LiveCareer will send your friend/relative an e-mail inviting him or her to visit LiveCareer to learn more about our services. You will also have the opportunity to send your career test results or your resume to your friend/relative to facilitate a discussion with them about your career and/or your resume. LiveCareer stores your friend's contact information for the sole purpose of sending the e-mail.
2. USE OF INFORMATION
The information which you supply to LiveCareer enables us to provide the assessment, salary data, resume tools and other tools which you select by matching the information you provide to our database of occupations, educational opportunities and other resources, including data provided by others who have visited our Site. Your information may be used in various ways, including:
(i) For some tests/tools, the information you provide is aggregated with information from other Customers to create a comparative database that allows LiveCareer to produce results and reports for you. When your information or the information of other Customers is used in this way, it is aggregated and is not used or disclosed in a way that allows third parties (including other Customers) to identify any individual user.
(ii) LiveCareer uses your information in order to customize our Site to your interests, enhance your overall experience on our Site and notify you of current and upcoming LiveCareer products and services. To save you time and effort, LiveCareer may pre-populate data fields within our Site or on third party affiliate offer forms with the information and materials, including resumes, you previously provided or submitted to the Site. In addition, LiveCareer tries to recognize you using various methods, including having you log in with your e-mail address and your password. Once LiveCareer recognizes you, pages, advertisements and other content are customized for you so that you can see what interests you the most.nbsp;bsp;p;
(iii) In addition, as described above, LiveCareer utilizes passive information to learn more about how you interact with our Site. This passive information may be combined with your other information for purposes such as testing and improving your experience on our Site and the compilation of broad aggregate demographic data and related usage information for internal purposes and for disclosure to third parties such as advertisers and content partners and others who may be interested in learning about the type of information LiveCareer collects. This aggregate passive information does not contain any personal information which can identify any individual user.
Contacting You by E-Mail--LiveCareer may use your contact information periodically in order to send you e-mail regarding updates at the LiveCareer Site, such as new LiveCareer opportunities and additional listings which may be of interest to you. The frequency of these messages will vary depending upon your profile, including the types of career resources and other activities that you have indicated an interest in. In addition, we may send you free informational newsletters or notices relating to topics which may be of special interest to you, including career planning tools, financial aid, admissions tips, job opportunities and job advice. Finally, if you provide LiveCareer with permission at the time of registration, you may also receive commercial e-mails or communications from third parties.
3. SHARING OF INFORMATION
Most importantly, LiveCareer wants you to know that any information you provide outside of our registration process in connection with our products as well as information you provide while developing your resume, will not be shared with third parties, except as noted herein, unless you affirmatively direct LiveCareer to do so.
With respect to information you provide during our registration process, LiveCareer gives you the option not to receive electronic communications from LiveCareer and third parties. If you do not opt-out, personal information about you (such as your contact information and other information collected during your visit to LiveCareer) may be shared with colleges, universities, potential employers, recruiters/headhunters, data aggregators, marketers (possibly in the form of list rental or license) and other organizations.
LiveCareer also provides you with a User job search email address (“User Email Address”) to receive job, product and service-related alerts. By using LiveCareer’s email services, you give LiveCareer the permission and power to choose which emails sent to your User Email Address should be filtered and which should be forwarded to your User Email Address. You give LiveCareer the permission to alter the content of 3rd party emails for any reason. You also give LiveCareer the permission to store copies of the filtered and forwarded email on its servers. LiveCareer does not receive or accept any authority over your usage of your User Email Address, and will not be held liable for anything related to your User Email Address. Please be advised that there is a risk involved whenever downloading email attachments to your computer and LiveCareer is not responsible for any damages caused by your decision to do so.
Third Party Service Providers--From time to time, LiveCareer may decide that it is more efficient to use third parties to perform specific services, such as sending newsletters to LiveCareer's users or career management services or job search services. If we use a third party to provide specific services (such as sending newsletters to our users on our behalf), then information (such as contact information) may be shared with that party to the extent necessary for the third party to provide these services. These third party service providers are only allowed to use personally identifiable information for the purpose of providing the specific services requested by you or LiveCareer. The third party services covered by this paragraph do not include links to third party sites found on our Site, which are governed by a more specific provision (Links to Other Sites) below.
LiveCareer provides functionality on the Site that allows you to share information, for example, by creating an electronic profile, creating your own web page, posting certain information and materials such as your resume and distributing your resume, including via email. If you choose to make your profile, assessment results, reports or resume visible to others, including through blogs, forums, message boards, etc., LiveCareer strongly recommends you use caution and discretion. LIVECAREER IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE USE BY OTHERS OF ANY INFORMATION YOU CHOOSE TO DISCLOSE TO OTHERS THROUGH OUR SITE.
If you opt-out of having your information shared with third parties who communicate with you electronically, LiveCareer will not share your information unless you specifically direct us to in response to a particular offer on our Site. To opt-out of electronic communications before you have registered with us, please uncheck the box above the "Continue" button on our home page. To opt-out (or to opt back in) after you have registered with LiveCareer, please click on the "My Account" link at the top of your Account Home Page and then click on "Subscriptions".
A Customer who wishes to avoid having his information shared with third parties for communications other than electronic communications, may close/deactivate his or her LiveCareer account at any time and we will remove individual information from our systems and databases within one (1) business day.
PLEASE NOTE: As discussed above, any information you provide outside of our registration process in connection with our products as well as information you provide while developing your resume, will not be shared with third parties, except as noted herein, unless you affirmatively direct LiveCareer to do so.
LiveCareer has security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse and/or unauthorized alteration of the information under our control. You are the only user authorized to update your profile, unless you provide your password information to another party.
LiveCareer helps protect personally identifiable information by utilizing both online and offline industry-standard security methods, including firewalls, passwords and restricted physical access to the places where your information is stored. Our staff is trained to comply with our security procedures and our security procedures are regularly reviewed and revised, if necessary, by the Privacy Team at LiveCareer.
If you have any questions about security issues at our site, please send an e-mail to privacy@LiveCareer.com, and we will try to answer your questions.
