Uses and Disclosures of Information
The PII you provide on the Employment Marketplace website will be used only for its intended purpose. We will protect your information consistent with the principles of the Privacy Act of 1974.
Personally Identifiable Information
As a general rule, Employment Marketplace does not collect PII about you when you visit our website, unless you choose to provide such information to us. Submitting PII through our website is voluntary. By doing so, you are giving Employment Marketplace your permission to use the information for the stated purpose. However, not providing certain information may result in the Employment Marketplace inability to provide you with the service you desire.
If you choose to provide us with PII on an Employment Marketplace website and/or mobile device, through such methods as completing a web form or sending us an email, we will use that information to help us provide you the information or service you have requested or to respond to your message. The information we may receive from you varies based on what you do when visiting our site.
Many of our programs and websites allow you to send us an email. We will use the information you provide to respond to your inquiry. We will only send you general information via email. You should be reminded that email may not necessarily be secure against interception. Therefore, we suggest that you do not send sensitive personal data (such as your Social Security number) to us via email. If your intended email communication is very sensitive, or includes information such as your bank account, charge card, you should send it through submission of data through the secure web page.
Automatically Collected Information
We collect and temporarily store certain information about your visit for use in site management and security purposes only.

We may also automatically collect information about the web content you view in the event of a known security or virus threat. This information includes:
Employment Marketplace reserves the right to match your IP address (or any other information) with other information about you in any way permitted by applicable law. Employment Marketplace will store this information on its equipment or the equipment of third parties that Employment Marketplace has a relationship with for that purpose. If you create an Employment Marketplace account, information may be collected under your account email address.
If you access or use the Site on your mobile telephone or other mobile device, including tablets, we collect mobile device identifiers, including MAC Address, and IP Address. Employment Marketplace Place may create and assign to your device an identifier that is similar to an account number. We may collect the name you have associated with your device, device type, telephone number, country, and any other information you choose to provide, such as user name, geo-location or e-mail address. We may also access your contacts to enable you to invite friends to join you in the Site.
When a Job Seeker deletes an account, the Job Seeker will no longer have access to any of the data which we provided under that account name, including but not limited to, search history, job search preferences, saved jobs, jobs the Job Seeker has applied to, job alerts, resume, and any other data associated with the account. If the Job Seeker uses the same email address to set up a new account, this data will not become available to the Job Seeker again. Employment Marketplace reserves the right to keep any materials in a deleted account as necessary to preserve and protect its rights as allowed by law (for example, to preserve records of a dispute) or to comply with its obligations under local law (for example, to keep an email address). A deleted account does not mean that all of the data is expunged from the Employment Marketplace systems, although it will not be readily available under the Job Seeker’s original account name. When the Job Seeker presses the delete account button on the dashboard, Employment Marketplace will begin to process that instruction within 24 hours and will have completed the operation within 40 days. Employers may disable an account, however Employment Marketplace must preserve business records pertaining to that account to comply with its obligations under law.
When you create an Employment Marketplace account, request information, subscribe for a service, participate in a survey, post a rating or review, post a question or answer, post a resume, upload content or otherwise actively send us data on our Site, we collect such data including, but not limited to, your user name, password, first and last name, email address, telephone number (including mobile phone number), street address, gender, occupation, interests, messages you send to users, and any other data included in a submitted profile or resume. In connection with chargeable services, we will also collect payment information (e.g., credit card number and related verification information).

If and to the extent permitted by applicable law, Employment Marketplace or its designated third-party partners may also use your contact information to (i) send you job alerts; (ii) create an account; and (iii) send you information about Employment Marketplace, including promotional materials.
Employment Marketplace may use demographic and/or profile data to tailor your experience on the Site, show you content that Employment Marketplace thinks you may be interested in, and display content according to your preferences. Your information, including Personal Information, gets placed on the Site when you upload or edit a resume. To the extent you upload a resume or edit it, and subject to your Privacy Settings, you are making the resume, your name and other Personal Information that you place on your resume available to third parties who may be interested in you as an employee (and who may forward your resume and Personal Information to other third parties), to search engines, or to the general public by posting your Personal Information on the internet.

If you post a public resume, this may be crawled by, and displayed through, search engines when someone searches for your name. This means that third parties can view the Personal Information contained in your resume and you may receive unsolicited contact from parties unaffiliated with Employment Marketplace and for whom Employment Marketplace has no responsibility. If you do not want your Personal Information posted on the Site, you should not upload it. You may opt-out of this feature on a going-forward basis by editing your Privacy Settings; however, Employment Marketplace does not warrant how often third-party search engines will update their caches, which may continue to contain your resume information. Employment Marketplace reserves the right to charge third parties a fee for accessing your information, including Personal Information, as part of I Employment Marketplace services. At your direction, Employment Marketplace may also send your resume to third parties if you choose to apply for a job listing.

In such cases, the third-party application may request an email address, username, password, and geographic location (e.g., State, region, or ZIP code) for account registration purposes. Employment Marketplace does not use third-party websites to solicit and collect PII from individuals. Any PII collected by the third-party website will not be transmitted or stored by the Employment Marketplace; no PII will be disclosed, sold or transferred to any other entity outside the Employment Marketplace, unless required for law enforcement purposes or by statute.
Employment Marketplace uses various types of online surveys to collect opinions and feedback from a random sample of visitors. Although the survey invitation pops up for a random sample of visitors, it is optional. If you decline the survey, you will still have access to the identical information and resources at the state.gov site as those who do take the survey. The survey reports are available only to Employment Marketplace managers and other designated staff who require this information to perform their duties. Employment Marketplace may use other limited-time surveys for specific purposes, which are explained at the time they are posted.
Employment Marketplace retains the data from the survey results as long as needed to support the mission of the Employment Marketplace website.
