Last updated: February 10, 2017

Cleared Connections (the "Company") is committed to respecting the privacy rights of the users of our website located at https://www.clearedconnections.com (the "Site"). This Privacy Statement (the "Statement") describes the privacy practices we use on the Site and applies solely to information collected by or through the Site. It does not apply to any information on other sites, even if you access another site through this Site.

This Statement informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information when you register for and use our Site. In particular, it notifies you about the following issues:

  1. What personally identifiable information we collect from you through the Site, how we use it and with whom we may share it.
  2. What choices are available to you regarding the posting and use of your information.
  3. The security procedures in place to protect your information.
  4. How you can contact us to correct any inaccuracies in the information or for any other reasons.

COLLECTION AND USE

We are the sole owners of the information collected by or through the Site. By using the Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this Statement and our Terms of Use.

We collect information from you by or through the Site when you register. When registering, we may ask you for information that may include, but is not limited to, your email address, name, phone number, postal address, and other information. At your option, you may also provide demographic information (such as gender or age) about yourself, but it is not required.

We will use your information for providing and improving the Site, as well as identifying and communicating with you, responding to your requests or inquiries.

When you access the Site by or through a mobile device or computer, we may collect certain information automatically. Such information includes, but is not limited to, geographic information, the type of mobile device or computer you use, the search terms you may have used, your unique ID, the IP address of your mobile device or computer, your mobile or computer operating system, the type of mobile Internet browser you use and other statistics.

You may see social media "like" buttons or "share" buttons on our Site. If you use those buttons, we may collect your IP address and where you were on our Site or on social media when you used the button. These kinds of social media features are governed by the privacy policies of the companies providing them.

If you email us or send us other communications directly, we will retain your email or address and correspondence so that we may respond to your request and for compliance purposes. We may retain this information indefinitely so that we have a history of our past communications.

Unless you ask us not to do so through our "opt-in" or "opt-out" procedure (see next section), we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about new services or changes to this Statement. We may also use your information to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials, and other information that may be of interest to you.

From time-to-time, our Site may request information from you via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address) and demographic information (such as zip code, age level, etc.). We will use survey information for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this Site.

Opt-In or Opt-Out: You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time or change any of your account information by accessing the "My Account" section of the Site, by following the unsubscribe link provided in any email we send, or by contacting us using the contact information at the end of this Statement. Any change will be effective for emails or other action not yet in process. We may also retain any information changed or deleted by you for record-keeping purposes.

Cookies: To enhance your experience with the Site, like many websites and similar services, we use a feature on your internet browser called a "cookie" to make it easier for you to use the Site and for us to gather information about the users of the Site. Cookies are files with a small amount of data that your web browser places on your computer's hard drive and may include an anonymous unique identifier. We use cookies for remembering user names and passwords and preferences, tracking click streams, and for load balancing. Because of our use of cookies, we can deliver faster service, consistent, updated results, and a more personalized site experience.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being used. The Help feature of most browsers provides information on how to accept cookies, disable cookies or to notify you when receiving a new cookie. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to sign in or use other features of our Site and services that depend on cookies, but you will be able to perform basic navigation through the Site.

Location: We may use and store information about your location depending on the permissions you have set on your device. We use this information to provide features of our Site and to improve and customize our Site. You can enable or disable location services when you use our Site at any time, through your mobile device settings.

DISCLOSURE AND SHARING

Except as described in this Statement, we will not use, sell, trade or otherwise share or transfer your personally identifiable information with any third party outside of our organization without first providing you with advance notice. We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Site, to provide the Site on our behalf, to perform Site-related functions, and to assist us in analyzing how users use our Site. These third parties have access to your information only to perform specific tasks on our behalf and are prohibited from disclosing or using your information for any other purpose.

We will disclose your information where required to do so by law or subpoena, or if we believe such action is necessary to comply with the law and the reasonable requests of law enforcement, or to protect the security or integrity of our Site. We may also release your information when we believe such release is required to enforce our Site policies, or protect ours or others' rights, property, or safety.

If we are involved in a merger, acquisition or asset sale, your information may be transferred as a business asset. In such cases, we will provide notice before your information is transferred or becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

YOUR OPTIONS REGARDING YOUR INFORMATION

The Site is intended for use by individuals with security clearances, and government agencies or contractors seeking to hire such individuals. In addition to the options regarding opt-in or opt-out, cookies, and location settings, a job applicant has the option of posting his or her resume in our database in one of three categories:

  1. Private: Employers will not be able to see your resume unless you submit it to them when you identify jobs of interest.
  2. Confidential: Your full resume will be available to employers, but your contact information (name, address, phone, e-mail) will be concealed. Those employers interested in contacting you may do so via e-mail that will be forwarded to you confidentially.
  3. Public: Any employer can see your full resume including your name and address information.

If you post your resume to the searchable database, then all recruiters who pay for access to our resume database product will have access to your resume. If you post your resume to the searchable database, but desire your contact information to be unavailable, the Site provides that alternative to you as well.

The Company strives to ensure that we grant access to this database only paying recruiters, hiring managers, headhunters, and human resource professional. We are not responsible, however, if some other third party, such as someone posing as the one of the entities described in the preceding sentence, pays for the service, evades security measures, and gains access to the database, and subsequently, your resume.

You may request that your resume be removed from our database at any time. Recruiters who have paid for access to the database, however, may have retained your resume in their own files or databases. We are not responsible for the retention, use, or privacy of resumes in these instances.

SECURITY

The security of your information is important to us, and we strive to implement and maintain reasonable, commercially acceptable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the information we store, in order to protect it from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure. When you submit sensitive information to the Site, your information is protected both online and offline. The Site utilizes the most effective firewall protection to secure all information.

If a password is used to protect your account and personal information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. You must also require any employees or other representatives to whom you grant access to the Site to maintain the confidentiality of all passwords.

Whenever we collect sensitive information, that information is transmitted to us in a secure way through the use of Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and is then encrypted. You can verify this point by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page.

In addition to using encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees or contractors who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) can have access to your sensitive information. In addition, the computers and servers on which we store sensitive personal information are kept in a secure environment.

Please understand, however, that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. As such, although we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

You must promptly notify us if your user name or password is lost, stolen, or used without permission. Requests for lost password updates will be sent only to the email address in your account setup. In such an event, we will remove that user name or password from your account and update our records accordingly.

Your information may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ from those in your jurisdiction.

In the unlikely event that individual personal information has been acquired, or is reasonably believed to have been acquired, from us by an unauthorized individual and applicable law requires notification, we will notify the affected users of that breach. We will provide such notice promptly, although notification may be delayed if we or any law enforcement agency determines that notification would hinder an investigation.

Third Party Sites: Our Site may contain links to other sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party's site. We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services. We strongly encourage you to review the privacy policy of every site you visit, particularly any site that collects personally identifiable information about you.

ACCESS OR CHANGES TO YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

Any time you would like to see the personal information we maintain about you, you can request a copy of such information. Simply send an email with "Personal Information Request" in the Subject line to the email address indicated below. You can also receive this information by sending a letter to the address indicated at the end of this Statement. We will do our best to respond to your request within a reasonable time. At a minimum, we will contact you within 30 days to tell you approximately how long it will take us to fulfill your request.

The Site allows you to change or correct your personal information at any time. To do so, simply log into your and you will find options for editing the information you have submitted.

FEEDBACK

The Site has an area where you can submit feedback. Any feedback you submit through this area becomes the Company's property. We may use this feedback for marketing purposes or to contact you for further feedback on the Site.

CHILDREN

Our Site does not deal with information relevant to children under the age of 13. As such, we do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from such children. We believe children should get their parents' consent before giving personal information. If you are a parent or guardian and you learn that your children have provided us with personal information, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will take steps to remove that information from our servers and other systems.

If you are concerned about your child's use of the Site, we encourage you to use Web filtering technology to supervise your child's access to the Site. We also encourage you to participate in your child's experience with Site. With a little guidance, the site can prove very useful in finding a part time or summer job for your child, as well as providing them with excellent career counseling information.

CHANGES TO THIS STATEMENT

We reserve the right to update or change this Statement at any time. We will post those changes on this page so you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose it to anyone. As such, you should check this Statement periodically. Such changes will be effective immediately after we post them on this page. Your continued use of the Site after we post any modifications to this Statement page will constitute your acknowledgment of the modifications and your consent to abide and be bound by the modified Statement.
