The personal information we collect may include your name, address, telephone number, email address, date of birth, education level and year of graduation, information you include on your resume, and, if you are a Employment customer, credit/debit card number.

Information Automatically Collected
Information Collected From Other Sources
We may obtain information about you from other sources, including commercially available sources such as data aggregators and public databases. This information may include name, demographic information, updated contact information, interests, and publicly-observed data, such as from social media and online activity. We may combine this information with the information we collect from and about you to help us tailor our communications to you and to improve our services and products.
We collect your location based information for the purpose of providing location-based products and services on The Employment Network. We will only share this information with our mapping provider for the sole purpose of providing you the service. If you no longer wish to allow us to track your geo-location information in the Mobile App you may turn this off at the device level.
The Employment Network or its Service Providers may use the information we collect from and about you for any of the following purposes:
We may contact you via email, telephone, text message, postal mail, or any other means of communication that you provide to us as a means of contacting you.
If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each newsletter or communication or by visiting our opt-out page.
The Employment Network may share aggregate or anonymous non-personal information with third parties.
If you are a California resident, you may opt-out of our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To opt out, please contact us at CAprivacy@employmentnetwork.net.
California residents may choose to opt-out of the sharing of their personal information with third parties for direct marketing purposes at any time by submitting a request in writing to Employment, Compliance Department, 1200 South Ave., Staten Island, NY 10314 or by e-mailing us the request at: CAprivacy@employmentnetwork.net. We honor all such opt-out requests and it is our policy not to share personal information with third parties for direct marketing purposes where you have submitted such a request. It is important to note that this opt-out does not prohibit disclosures made for non-marketing purposes.
California law requires that we disclose how our site responds to "Do Not Track" (DNT) signals from browsers and other mechanism that express the user's preference not to be tracked. Currently, there is not an industry-wide accepted definition of what is a DNT signal. For this reason, we currently do not respond to such signals.
We may use third party advertisements to support our Site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, log files, or local shared objects (collectively, "Data Collection Technologies") when they advertise on our Site, which may send these advertisers information including your non-personal information.
You are free to set your Internet browser to decline cookies, but by doing so, you may not be able to use certain features on the Site or take full advantage of all of our offerings. Check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
Our Site also uses Data Collection Technologies to help manage our online advertising program. These Data Collection Technologies are provided by our ad management partners and other third parties.
In addition, we and our ad management partners may use these Data Collection Technologies to track the actions of users of the Site, to improve our products and services, to measure statistics of our marketing efforts, and to deliver advertisements on our Site or on other websites across the Internet that may be more relevant to individual consumers.
We support the Digital Advertising Alliance's Self-Regulatory Principles for Interest-Based Advertising ("Principles"). This means that we allow you to exercise choice regarding the collection of information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites for online interest-based advertising purposes. More information about these Principles can be found at www.aboutads.info/.
If you want to "opt out" of receiving online interest-based advertisements, please follow the instructions at www.aboutads.info/choices, or www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ and an "opt-out" cookie will be placed on your device indicating that you do not want to receive interest-based advertisements. If you delete cookies on your device generally, you will need to opt-out again.
Please note that when you "opt-out" of receiving interest-based advertisements, this does not mean you will no longer see advertisements from us or on the Site. It means that the online ads that you do see will not be based on your particular interests. In addition, when you "opt-out" of receiving interest-based advertisements through one of the links above, certain Data Collection Technologies on our Site may still collect information about your use of the Site, including for analytics and fraud prevention as well as any other purpose permitted under the Principles. When we use the term "Data Collection Technologies" we are referring to any technology that collects information about your use of the Site and potentially about your activities when you leave the Site and visit other sites on the Internet.
