Dedicated to your privacy

Your privacy is important to us. Our goal is to earn and keep your trust, according to the following principles:

  • We will never rent or sell your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes
  • We will never share your contact information with a recruiter or hiring manager, unless both of you choose to contact one another regarding an open position
  • Any sensitive information that you provide will be secured with all industry standard protocols and technology

When this Privacy Policy uses the term "personally identifiable information" or "personal information," we mean information that identifies a particular individual, such as your full name, street address or email address. When other information, such as your target job category, is associated with personal information, it also becomes personally identifiable information for the purposes of this privacy policy.

Please read this Privacy Policy to learn more about the ways in which we use and protect your personal information.

Information We Collect and How We Use That Information

Registration
Our basic registration forms require users to provide contact information, including name, mailing address and email address. We use this information to contact you about the services on our site in which you have expressed interest. Should you choose to purchase services, your credit card information will be stored. We use this information for billing purposes only. If we have trouble processing your order, we will use your information to contact you.

We will use your Personal Information for internal purposes only and will never sell or share your personal information with any third parties except as described in this privacy statement (see “Business Transitions”).

Should you post your resume, the amount of information you choose to keep confidential is entirely up to your discretion. You may enter as much or as little information as you choose. If you do not wish to reveal your contact information to hiring authorities, you may still post your resume as Confidential.

Web Beacons

A web beacon (also known as a clear gif) is a tiny graphic with a unique identifier that is placed on a web page or within an email. It is similar in function to a cookie, and is used to collect a limited set of information, such as a cookie number, time and date of page view, and a description of the page on which the web beacon resides.

This information helps us better manage content on the Site by informing us what content is effective.

This use allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and our marketing campaigns. WorkInSports.com does associate web beacons to individual member personal information for internal purposes only, in an effort to understand our members’ individual preferences with our email products.

Security

The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
