Prospective employers where you indicate that you would like your Resume Information to be submitted for an employment opportunity posting.

  1.

Individuals reading such information may use or disclose it to other individuals or entities without our control and without your knowledge, and search engines may index that information. Despite commercially reasonable efforts, we cannot guarantee the privacy of the Persona Data submitted by you. Also note that if you exchange messages with a potential employer to whom you were introduced by us, such employer may retain the message history after you terminate communications and/or close your user profile to them.
