Your privacy is our priority and ResumeRepublic endeavours to provide users with a safe and secure environment and experience.
The types of information that we collect fall under two general categories: personally identifiable information (PII) and non-personally identifiable information (non-PII). PII consists of any information which can be used to specifically identify you as an individual, whereas non-PII consists of aggregate information or any information that does not reveal your identity. The following sections describe how your PII and non-PII are collected by us, and how we use such information.
Log Files. Any time you visit any of our websites, our servers automatically gather information from your browser (such as your IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks). This information may be used to analyze trends, administer the site, prevent fraud, track visitor movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information. For example, we may log your IP address for system administration purposes. IP addresses are logged to track a user’s session. This gives us an idea of which parts of our site users are visiting. We do not share the log files externally.
Web Beacons. Web beacons (also known as clear gifs and pixel tags) are small transparent graphic images that are often used in conjunction with cookies in order to further personalize our website for our users and to collect a limited set of information about our visitors. We may also use web beacons in email communications in order to understand the behavior of our customers. We do not link the web beacons to any PII.
Information About You. When you register or subscribe to the Services, we collect a wide variety of information about you to complete your online Resume, Personal Pages, Portfolio or Blog, as applicable, including but not limited to your educational achievement and professional life. You can control whether to have this information displayed publicly to other community members and visitors, made accessible to search engines, or protected with a password, in each case by visiting the Account settings. You may choose to provide us with additional content for your Portfolio or Blog and by providing us such content, you agree that we may make them available to other community members and visitors consistent with your privacy settings. Except as otherwise stated in this privacy statement, we do not disclose your PII to other users of the Services.
Purchase Information. To process purchases of Premium Services, we may require your name, address, phone number, email address. ResumeRepublic don’t ask you for credit card number. We use a third-party payment processor (2checkout.com) to process your payments. You’ll be redirected to them directly and asked to submit your credit card number with all other required data that is necessary for the payment of membership dues.
E-mails. We require an email address from you when you register for Services. We use your email for both transactional (e. g., order confirmation, refund and renewal processing) and promotional (e. g., newsletters, new product offerings, special discounts, event notifications, special third-party offers) purposes. Email messages we send you may contain code that enables our database to track your usage of the emails, including whether the email was opened and what links (if any) were clicked. If you would rather not receive promotional emails from us, please see the section below labeled Choice/Opt-Out. We reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to the Services, such as service announcements and administrative messages, without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them. We fully comply with the requirements of the U.S. CAN-SPAM Act.
Demographic Data. Demographic data is also collected at our site. We use this data to tailor our visitors’ experience at our site, showing them content that we think they might be interested in, and displaying the content according to their preferences. Some of this information may be shared with advertisers on a non-personally identifiable basis.
Online Survey Data. We may periodically conduct voluntary member surveys. We encourage our members to participate in such surveys because they provide us with important information regarding the improvement of our services. You may also volunteer for certain surveys that we may offer to our users, and any additional rules regarding the conduct of such surveys will be disclosed to you prior to your participation. We do not link the survey responses to any PII, and all responses are anonymous.
Information Regarding Your Friends. We encourage you to refer a friend to our Services by sending us a friend’s name and email address. We will send that person a one-time email containing your name and inviting them to visit our site. This email will also include instructions on how to remove their information from our database. You agree that you will not abuse this feature by entering names and addresses of those who would not be interested in our Services.

We will exercise reasonable care in providing secure transmission of information between your computer and our servers, but given that no information transmitted over the Internet can be guaranteed 100% secure, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to us over the Internet and hence accept no liability for any unintentional disclosure. However, we make no representations as to the security or privacy of your information. It is in our interest to keep our website secure, but we recommend that you use anti-virus software, routine credit checks, firewalls, and other precautions to protect yourself from security and privacy threats. You hereby fully and completely release, discharge and hold harmless ResumeRepublic from any claims, causes of action, damages or liability whatsoever stemming from unauthorized thirdparty access to or use of your information, whether the result of hacking, piracy, theft or misappropriation, or any other unauthorized access or acquisition of your information.
The more awesome resume you have, the easier you will find your dream job.
