Your privacy and the handling of personal and confidential information are extremely important to us at BirdDogJobs.com. We are committed to providing you the safest possible environment for your search.

Overview

This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) governs your interaction with BirdDogJobs.com (“Site”) and your registration for and use of our job board services. The Privacy Policy only applies to data gathered on BirdDogJobs.com and does not apply to any other website. By using the services on BirdDogJobs.com, you signify your agreement to this Policy. If you do not agree with this Policy, please do not use the services. Please review this Policy periodically as we may update it from time to time. Continued use of the services subsequent to any changes to this Policy means you accept those changes.

Personal Information

In order for users to use BirdDogJobs.com effectively, we may collect personal information including contact information. This allows us to provide users with secure areas from which to post and modify resumes, post and modify job opportunities, create and display profiles, search resumes, create and modify alert notifications, participate in discussion forums, and certain other services. In addition, when a job seeker applies to a specific job posting, personal information is stored in the employer’s account under the job opening the application was submitted to. Additionally, in order to help us improve our user experience, we track the users behavior throughout the website including the source from which they came, the users computer browser information, their IP address, and certain other information.

You agree that BirdDogJobs.com may use your personal contact information to contact you and deliver information or provide notices or communications applicable to your use of the Site. This may include promotional information that is targeted to your interest. By accepting this Policy, you expressly agree to receive this information. If you do not wish to receive these communications, you will be given the opportunity to opt-out of any further communications.

We do not sell our user’s personal information to anyone for any reason if the user has indicated a desire for us to keep the information private. We may disclose personal information if we determine that such disclosure is necessary to comply with the law or to protect the privacy and safety of BirdDogJobs.com or other users of the Site. 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 as a result of a bankruptcy.

When posting jobs and/or resumes, our users decide for themselves how much contact information they wish to display. We enable confidential communication flow for those who choose to hide this information by providing our "anonymous" posting features for both parties. To maintain public confidentiality, be sure to select the "anonymous" posting option and preview your online resume or job posting to confirm it contains no personally identifiable data. Under the anonymous option, the other party will be able to communicate with you through an e-mail path that does not display your e-mail address. You can deactivate your resume or job posting, and other account features anytime.

All users should be aware that when they voluntarily display personal information (including a resume) that information could be collected and used by others. This may result in unsolicited messages from third parties for which BirdDogJobs.com is not responsible. In addition, in the event of an anonymous posting, profile, et al., third parties may be able to reach the user through the confidential email path provided by BirdDogJobs.com, and BirdDogJobs.com is not responsible for any unsolicited messages from third parties using such path.
