Information Collection and Use
CareerMatrix.com is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We
will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways
different from what is disclosed in this statement. CareerMatrix.com
collects information from our users at several different points
on our website.
In order to submit a resume, a user must complete the resume submission
form. During submission a user is required to give their contact
information (such as name and email address) and employment history
(previous employers and education). This information is used by
our member employers to contact the user about job offers and determine
suitability for employment.
Sending a Resume Attachment
If a user applies to a job by sending a resume as an attachment to a company, CareerMatrix.com reserves
a copy of the resume file for the sole purpose of making sure that the employer
who this file was originally sent to, receives a readable copy. The file is
maintained on the careermatrix.com server until such time that the employer has
deactivated or deleted the job which this file was originally sent.

movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate
use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We will share aggregated demographic information with our employment members, potential
clients and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can
identify any individual person.
Our member employers will have access to your personal contact information unless you choose the
confidential option when submitting your resume. The confidential option will
hide your personal contact information. When the user signs up for these
services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary
with our member employers so they may contact you about job offers.

providing these services.

CareerMatrix.com are not responsible for the privacy practices of

email address. If the user wishes to use out Job alert function to become
notified of job openings that are of interest, you sign up for the job alert
function which allows our system to send you periodical e-mail messages. You are
allowed at anytime to opt-out of this function by logging into your account and

Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys
or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely
voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to
disclose this information. Information requested may include contact
information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic
information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information
will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information
will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and
satisfaction of this site.
If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for
the friend’s name and email address. CareerMatrix.com will automatically send
the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site. CareerMatrix.com
does not store this information and after sending this one-time email, the
friend's e-mail information is lost from our server.
This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information
is protected both online and off-line.
When our resume asks users to enter employment information (employment/education
history), that information is stored in a password protected database
and is only shared with our member employers.
While we use password protection to protect employment information online,
we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line.
All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information
mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who
need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our
billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted
access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, ALL
employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.
Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees
are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy,
and what they can do to ensure our customers’ information is protected.
If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can

Supplementation of Information

privacy of our users we present the option to not receive these
types of communications. Please see our choice and opt-out below.
Site and Service Updates
We also send the user site and service announcement updates. Members

to their account via email or phone.
Correction/Updating Personal Information:
If a user’s personally identifiable information changes (such as your
zip code), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor
to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user’s personal
data provided to us.
Our users are given the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ of having their information
used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point
where we ask for the information. For example, our resume form
has an ‘opt-out’ mechanism so users who submit a resume, but don’t
want any marketing material, can keep their email address off of
