Note that, by using the Services, you signify

please e-mail us at
A. The information we gather.
Placement USA 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 and the order in which they were visited, dates, times, etc. 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.
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. Essentially, cookies are your identification cards for the Placement USA 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 website operator to learn any personally identifiable information (see below) about you unless you have previously provided that information to the website operator or you have set the preferences in your browser to provide this information.
Cookies allow Placement USA 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 website(s). Additionally, the Services contain links to other third party websites, including co-branded or other affiliated sites in conjunction with Placement USA. 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 websites, 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 policies.
(2.) Personally identifiable information: In certain areas of the Services - such as those in which you create a new account, complete a profile, submit your résumé, or enter Placement USA sponsored contests or promotions - we may request that you provide us with certain personally identifiable information, such as your name, e-mail address, zip code, profession, or work experience. We will, in such situations, seek to identify which informational items are required and which are optional.
Please note that Placement USA 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 Placement USA. In the event that you encounter any Placement USA user who is improperly collecting or using information about you or other users, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
B. How we use (and do not use) the information we gather.
(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 potential business partners.
(2.) How we use (and do not use) personally identifiable information: Placement USA does not sell, re-sell or distribute for re-sale your personally identifiable information. Placement USA's customers may only use the information provided in resumes of job seekers to evaluate the seekers qualifications for the customer's open job opportunities. Job seekers should be aware, however, that Placement USA has no way to control how a customer actually uses the service and how they use the resume information. If you believe a Placement USA customer is using personally identifiable information inappropriately, please notify Placement USA at email@example.com.
Subject to the foregoing, Placement USA uses your personally identifying information in several ways:
In addition to the circumstances described above, Placement USA may disclose your personally-identifiable information to third parties as follows:
(3.) "Opting In": You may choose to
"opt in" to receive emails from Placement USA when registering for
membership. You may
change your "opt in" status or "opt out" with respect to such emails at any
And from your menu page, click on ‘Edit Your Registration Profile’ and then
check the appropriate box to "opt in" or "opt out". Alternatively, you may
contact us at
C. Surveys and Sweepstakes:
Occasionally, Placement USA may conduct surveys in order 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 we or the third party 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.
D. Deleting or correcting personal information.
If you would like to have your personally
identifiable information removed from Placement USA's database, or would like to
correct an error in such information, please contact us at
firstname.lastname@example.org, 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 Placement USA
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 Placement USA reserves the right, from time to
time, to re-contact former customers or users of Placement USA.
