If we seek to use the information we obtain about you in other ways, we will provide specific notice and request your consent at the time of collection.
INFORMATION WE SHARE
We share the information that we collect from you or from third party sources with recruiters, educators and service providers.
All users should be aware that when they choose to display or distribute Personal Information (such as their email address or other contact information on a public resume) via the Website or any other distribution method, that information can be collected and used by others. This may result in unsolicited messages from third parties.
We also may share Personal Information with our service providers who help us in the delivery of our own products and services to you. These service providers may only use or disclose the information as necessary to perform services on our behalf or as otherwise required by law.
ProFinder USA also may disclose specific user information when we determine, in good faith, that such disclosure is necessary to comply with the law, to cooperate with or seek assistance from law enforcement, to prevent a crime or protect national security, or to protect the interests or safety of ProFinder USA or other users of the Website.
In addition, Personal Information we have collected may be passed on to a third party in the event of a transfer of ownership or assets or a bankruptcy or other corporate reorganization of ProFinder USA.
Please allow up to thirty days to process your account or Profile deletion request.
A "cookie" is a text file that websites send to a visitor's computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor's browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A "web beacon," is also called a Web bug or a pixel tag or a clear GIF. Used in combination with cookies, a Web beacon is an often-transparent graphic image, usually no larger than 1 pixel x 1 pixel, that is placed on a Web site or in an e-mail that is used to monitor the behavior of the user visiting the Web site or sending the e-mail.
These companies operate under their own privacy policies and ProFinder USA encourages you to be aware of the privacy policies of such companies. ProFinder USA does not have control over or access to any information contained in the cookies that are set on your computer by third party advertisers./
In addition, some of the recruiters that use our Website may place cookies on your computer through their job postings and may use such cookies to distinguish your web browser uniquely. Often, recruiters use such information to track the effectiveness of their job postings by measuring how many users who view their postings later became job applicants.

Links to Other Websites
Our Sites may contain links to other sites for your convenience and information. These sites may be operated by companies not owned by ProFinder USA or The Apollo Agency LLC. These other sites or linked third-party sites may have their own privacy notices, which you should review if you visit those sites. We are not responsible for the content of any sites not owned by ProFinder USA, any use of those sites, or those sites' privacy practices.
International Data Transfers
When we obtain Personal Information about you, we may process and store the information outside of the country in which you are located, including in the United States. The countries in which we process the information may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you are located. Further, users who access your information also may be located in a different country than you and different laws may apply to their use of your information.
How We Protect Personal Information
ProFinder USA maintains administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to assist us in protecting the Personal Information we collect against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use.
Please note that no electronic transmission, storage or processing of information can be entirely secure. We cannot guarantee that the security measures we have in place to safeguard Personal Information will never be defeated or fail, or that those measures will always be sufficient or effective. Therefore, although we are committed to protecting your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your Personal Information will always remain private or secure. As a user of the Website, you understand and agree that you assume all responsibility and risk for your use of the Website, the internet generally, and the documents you post or access and for your conduct on and off the Website.
To further protect yourself, you should safeguard your ProFinder USA account user name and password and not share that information with anyone. You should also sign off your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit to our Sites. Please note that we will never ask for your ProFinder USA account user name or password via email.
You should use your own careful judgment about whether and what information to provide to recruiters. DO NOT PUT SENSITIVE INFORMATION, such as your Social Security number, on your resume.
If restricted or prohibited by the local laws in the jurisdiction where you reside, do not provide ProFinder USA, or otherwise include in your resumes or Profiles other sensitive information that reveals racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade-union membership, health or sex life, genetic or biometric data, the commission of criminal offences or proceedings or unlawful or objectionable conduct and associated penalties or fines.
ProFinder USA is open to the public, and we cannot guarantee that all users of our services have a legitimate need to the information they seek.
Do not provide your social security number, national identification number or any state, provincial or other local identification number to any third party via online application. Identity thieves may attempt to trick you into providing sensitive information. Do not provide any non-work related personal information (i.e., your social security number or any other state or national identification number, eye color, marital status, etc.) over the phone or online.
Job seekers should never provide credit card or bank numbers or engage in a monetary transaction of any sort.
Be cautious when dealing with contacts outside of your own country.
We use secure socket layer (or "SSL") technology to protect credit card transactions. The SSL technology encrypts credit card numbers while in transit so that they are not intercepted by unintended third parties.
