BuildAResume.com, Inc. (hereinafter “Company”) shares your concern about personal privacy.  Company recognizes that its customers, visitors, users, and others (collectively or individually, the “Users”) who use the BuildAResume.com website (the “Website”) value their privacy.  This Privacy Policy outlines important information regarding the use and disclosure of User information collected via the Website.  Company provides this Privacy Policy to help Users make an informed decision as to whether to use or continue using the Website.

1.             General

By reference, this Privacy Policy is incorporated into and is subject to the Company Terms and Conditions.  Your use of the Website and any personal information you provide via the Website or through other official Company contact remains subject to this Privacy Policy, as well as the Company Terms and Conditions, and/or other governing Company policies. 

You are informed that any photograph, image, graphic, video or other content posted by you or by other Users onto the Website becomes published news or informational content, or the like, and is not considered personally identifiable information subject to this Privacy Policy.

2.             Resumes

Since Company operates a career site, we give you the option of uploading your resume into our database. There are two (2) ways of doing this:

a.        You can upload your resume into our database, but not allow it to be searchable by potential employers.  Not allowing your resume to be searchable means that you can use it to apply for a job online, but employers and recruiters will not have access to search it through our resume database service.

b.        If you allow your resume to be searchable, then all qualified employers and recruiters visiting our resume database service will have access to your resume.

We use our best efforts to grant access to this database only to qualified employers, recruiters, hiring managers, headhunters, and human resource professionals, but cannot guarantee that other parties will not, without our consent, gain access to this database.  You may remove your resume from our searchable database at any time.  However, employers and recruiters, as well as other parties who have otherwise gained access to the database, may have retained a copy of your resume in their own files or databases.  We are not responsible for the retention, use, or privacy of resumes in these instances, or for the use or privacy of resumes by any of such parties while resumes are in the database.

3.             Updating Personal Account Information

Company allows you to change or correct your personal account information at any time.  To do so, simply log-in to your personal account, go to your account profile, and there you will find options for editing the information you have submitted.
