How We Collect, Use and Disclose Your Personal Information
If you choose to create an account and profile on our site or send us your resume, we use your personal information to provide you with secure access to your profile. We also use the profile information you provide to us (including any updates you make to your profile) for the purposes of including you in our resume database, which we use to match candidates with new positions on behalf of our clients. We collect additional personal information when you apply to jobs, interview with us, when we check your references, and when you work on assignments with our clients.
Use & Disclosure:
We use and maintain the information outlined above to determine your suitability for a job opening, to contact you about a specific job for which you have applied, or for other jobs that meet your job preference criteria. If you agree to allow us to submit your profile to one of our Clients for a job opening, we will disclose your resume and other personal information related to the application to our Client for their review. The personal information that we disclose in connection with the job opening may be stored by our Client on their internal Vendor Management System (“VMS”), such as but not limited to Fieldglass, Beeline and IQNavigator. The Client’s VMS may store its data in the United States and/or other locations.
You can choose how we communicate with you:
- Job Openings: We may contact you periodically via an email address or phone number that you provide regarding current positions that may be a match for your skill set.
- Partner Offers: When you create/update your profile on our website, you may be offered the opportunity to opt-in to receive communications from our partners concerning offers that may be of interest to you, such as access to group discounts for independent contractors in the information technology industry.
You can withdraw you consent to receive job opening, partner offers or surveys (see below) by email at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of such emails, or by contacting us through firstname.lastname@example.org

If you have a specific email address or phone number at which you do not want to be contacted, please do not add it to your website profile or send it to us on any correspondence.
In the event that there is an email address or phone number already in our database that you would like to delete or change and you are unable to access it through your profile on our website, please email email@example.com
indicating your request.
