The Platform is not directed to or intended for children under the age of 13 and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 on the Platform.
If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 13, or that there may be a user under the age of 13, please contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are based in the European Economic Area (EEA) you may only use the Platform if you are over the age at which you can provide consent to data processing under the laws of your country or if verifiable parental consent for your use of the Platform has been provided to us.

Other personal information you may submit to us, including but not limited to your resume, portfolio, employer, title, and references; and
Information about your internet connection, the equipment you use to access the Platform, and Platform usage details.
How We Collect Information From You
We collect information from you in two ways:
Directly from you when you provide it to us, such as entering your information into a questionnaire provided on the Platform; and
Automatically as you navigate through the Platform. Information collected automatically may include usage details, IP addresses, web browser preferences, and information collected through cookies and other tracking technologies.

We do not sell or otherwise disclose personal information we collect about you, except as described herein or otherwise disclose to you at the time the data is collected.
We may disclose personal information that we collect or you provide:

If we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of the Company, our customers, or others.
Legal Basis for Processing and Retaining Your Data
In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you or may otherwise need the personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person. If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information).
We retain your information as long as we have your consent and an ongoing legitimate business interest to process your personal information. After this retention period elapses at the reasonable determination of the Company, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
Choices About Your Information
Accessing and Correcting Your Information
You may send us an email at email@example.com
to request access to, correct, or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect, if the information is only stored in cached and archived pages, or if the information has been copied or stored by other Platform users and cannot be accessed by us.
Your California Privacy Rights
California Civil Code Section § 1798.83 permits users of the Platform that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Transferring Your Information
The Company is a worldwide service. By using the Platform, you authorize us to transfer and store your information outside your home country, including in the United States, for the purposes described in this policy. The privacy protections and the rights of authorities to access your information in these countries may not be the same as in your home country. We take additional measures when information is transferred from the European Economic Area (EEA). This includes having standard clauses approved by the European Commission in our contracts with parties that receive information outside the EEA. We also rely on European Commission adequacy decisions about certain countries, as applicable, for data transfers to countries outside the EEA.

Third Party Links
The Platform may contain links that lead to other websites, and the Company is not responsible for the privacy practices, content, and/or activities of these linked websites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of the Platform and welcome any feedback about these external websites.
We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access. For example, we perform regular malware scanning of the Platform and all servers and computers used by us to support the Platform. All Company employees are required to adhere to our security and confidentiality procedures and undergo training related to maintaining the security of user personal information.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to the Platform.
