Please read this Policy carefully before providing us with any User Information.
Personally Identifiable User Information
Sharing Profiles may require that you register and provide us with various types of personally identifiable User Information through the Site. For example, you may choose to provide us your personally identifiable User Information, including, but not limited to, your name, mailing address, cell phone number and email address. We may store a cookie file on your hard drive so that our systems will recognize you each time you visit the Site. In that way, we can save your preferences from visit to visit and present you with a customized version of the Site without requiring you to log into the Site every time you visit. We may store your personally identifiable information in our systems for use in other ways as described in this Policy.
In order for you to take full advantage of the Site, we encourage you to provide your personally identifiable User Information to us. Providing your personally identifiable User Information is, however, voluntary. You may choose not to provide us with your personally identifiable User Information by simply not entering it on the Site. While you will still have access to the Site even if you do not provide us with your personally identifiable User Information, you should understand that you will not be able to use certain services or features available through the Site that require you to enter your personally identifiable User Information in order to function. For example, we offer hirers the ability to access your phone number in an effort to contact you for a job. If you don’t provide us with your phone number, hirers will be left to contact you via email only, assuming you provide that information.
Policy Regarding Children under the Age of 18
The Site is not intended for children under the age of 18, and Sharing Profiles does not knowingly collect or use personally identifiable User Information from children under the age of 18.
How We Use Your Information
User Information collected from you helps both of us. We may use the User Information we collect to:
- Make your next visit to the Site more personalized
- Contact you regarding administrative issues such as questions about your specific request
- Provide your phone number to hirers who are interested in contacting you for work
- Compile anonymous statistical information for analysis
- Provide aggregated anonymous information to third parties
- Contact you with information and offers
- Present relevant information
Consent to the Use of Third Party Providers
In addition, all Users consent to the collection, maintenance, and processing of their User Information (whether or not personally identifiable) by Sharing Profiles and these third party providers. Third parties will protect your information as Sharing Profiles would under the terms of this policy.
This privacy statement describes Sharing Profile’s potential uses of your information. If you do not agree to our potential uses of your personally identifiable information as we have described for you, you are not required to provide that information to us. In addition, you may opt out of receiving advertising and promotional emails from us simply by responding to the opt-out email link provided on all email communications from Sharing Profiles. You are not able to opt out of receiving administrative emails from us.
You also may cancel or correct your personal information at any time. You can do this by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your User Name and the notice “My User Information” in the subject field of the e-mail or via the “My Account Summary” section on the website.
Surveys & Contests
From time to time our Site may request information from Users via emailed surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the User therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose personally identifiable User Information. The requested User Information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code). Contact User Information will be shared with the contest or survey sponsors to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey User Information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of the Site. Though we may use an intermediary to conduct these surveys or contests, these intermediaries will not use the Users’ personally identifiable User Information for any secondary purposes. You may opt out of receiving emailed surveys or contests from us simply by responding to the opt-out email link provided on all email communications from us.
Other Web Sites; Links
Please be aware that Sharing Profile’s affiliates, promotional partners, advertisers, sponsors, and other third-party web sites accessible through the Site may have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices. Sharing Profiles is not responsible for any actions, content of web sites or privacy policies of such third parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing personally identifiable information through linked web sites.
Disclosure of Your User Information
As you might expect, Sharing Profiles must cooperate with legal authorities, and may in some circumstances be required to disclose User Information (including personally identifiable User Information) in response to requests from law enforcement authorities, or in response to a subpoena or other legal process. We don’t expect this to happen, but if it does, we will provide only the User Information required. We can also turn over User Information about you if we believe we must in order to prevent a violation of the law, and by accepting this Policy, you consent to our right to do so, in our sole discretion. You also consent to our disclosing User Information about you in the course of legal proceedings if we believe we are legally required to do so, if we reasonably believe that doing so may mitigate our liability, or if doing so will assist us in enforcing our legal rights.
At some point, Sharing Profiles may establish subsidiaries or other related companies, or merge with or be acquired by another company. When that happens, then we may disclose to them your User Information, in which case we will request them to abide by this Policy. We may also disclose some User Information to a potential acquirer, although such disclosure would be subject to normal and customary requirements. If and when such a merger or acquisition takes place, we will notify you by publishing a public announcement on our Site.
Of course, Sharing Profiles will take reasonable measures to secure the User Information Users provide to us, using industry-standard methods. All User Information is protected by password and accessible only to authorized Sharing Profiles personnel. However, there is a remote possibility that Internet transmissions containing a User’s personally identifiable User Information may be intercepted by others. There is no way for us to ensure the privacy of User Information before it arrives at the Site or after it leaves the Site.
