A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie terminates.
We sometimes share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to personally identifiable information.
Careerpassport maintains relationships with outside service providers for some of the services offered through our site, for example PAYMENT GATEWAY provider and ADVERTISERS. We will only share the company and agency information that is necessary for the third party to provide their services and this information can be used by the providers for the sole purpose of delivering these services to Careerpassport.
Careerpassport may be presented in a "framed" format, where the Careerpassport pages may be surrounded by companies’ and agencies’ pages. Careerpassport is served by the company and agency, and the frames pages have the look and feel of Careerpassport. In these cases, the company or agency is prominently identified and the Careerpassport frame is also clearly identified. Please be aware that any information you provide outside these framed pages is provided directly to the company or agency and is subject to their security and privacy policies. Careerpassport is not responsible for any information you supply to companies or agencies outside the Careerpassport frame. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of these outside service providers because their privacy practices may differ from ours.
Candidate Profile and CV Sharing
Careerpassport allows you, as a candidate, to have full control over the visibility and searchablity of your profile and CV. Your profile and CV will only be visible to your own Connected Companies listed in your Connections tab in your Profile. Companies and Agencies are only added to your Connected Companies list by one of the following actions:
When you register to Careerpassport through a company’s or agency’s website. The company or agency will be added to your list of Connected Companies.
When you apply for a position or submit an open application with the company. The company, its parent company and its subsidiaries, if any, will be added to your list of Connected Companies.
When you apply for a position or submit an open application with an agency. The agency will be added to your list of Connected Companies.
When an agency forwards your CV to their Clients, the agency should always request your approval and should never share your CV without prior notice. You should never allow an agency to share your CV with its client without your own specific approval. Although Careerpassport is not liable should a Connected Company share your CV without your approval, we request you to report such incidents to email@example.com and Careerpassport will investigate the matter. Clients using Careerpassport are bound with their Terms of Business to comply with this restriction.
You may remove your CV and Profile from the database of any of your Connected Companies anytime through the Connections tab by removing the Company or Recruitment Agency from your Connected Companies list.

Correcting/Updating Personal Information
We also do everything in our power to protect user information offline. Access to all of our users' information is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, all employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Finally, the servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a high security data centre, fully owned by our suppliers. If a user's personally identifiable information changes, or if a user no longer desires our service, we provide a way to correct, update or remove that user's personal details provided to us. This can be done from the user's profile tabs or by emailing our Administrator at email@example.com.
Users who no longer wish to allow their profile and CV to be searchable by Connected Employers and/or Copnnected Agencies may opt out of this website by going to their Personal Details tab, and select to deactivate the profile. Candidates who no longer wish to receive our alerts may opt out of receiving it by going to their Job Alerts Tab and un-tick the alerts option.
This option is intended to remove the profile from the Careerpassport, however, to block particular employers and agency, you can disassociate yourself from one company or agency at any time through your Connections Tab found within your profile. By disassociating yourself from a Company or Agency, your profile and CV will no longer be visible or searchable by the same Company or Agency. You may also reverse these actions any time through the same profile tabs.
Surveys and Contests
We may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information.
