Privacy Policy

Introduction:

The mission of CertifiedPerson is to connect the world’s professionals to enable them to be more productive and successful in their job search. Being part of CertifiedPerson means sharing information about yourself with other professionals, communicating with them, as well as working privately on your own. By default, your account is set up to share the information that we have found the vast majority of our Users are interested in sharing. But the amount and type of information you decide to share, and with whom you share it, is up to you.

Here are the three main types of information on CertifiedPerson:

  1. Information about yourself that you share: This is the information that your connections, other professionals, and companies see about you. This includes your profile and your contributions to discussions on CertifiedPerson Groups, Answers, or other community features CertifiedPerson may offer such as "Profile Stats" which, if you choose to opt-in, can show you who viewed your profile (and will show others when you visited their profiles). You have control over what you share, and you can update information at any time.
  2. Communication: We help you communicate with connections and other professionals. Some of this is one-to-one, some of it is in groups, and some of it is public discussion. You decide how much or how little you wish to communicate to individuals or groups.
  3. Private activity: We also provide tools that you can use privately on CertifiedPerson (for example, searching, or adding notes to your connections information.) These actions and information are private and we don't share or distribute them to others on the website.

Of course, maintaining your trust is our top concern, so we adhere to the following principles to protect your privacy:

  1. We do not rent, sell, or otherwise provide your personally identifiable information to third parties without your consent, except as described in this policy or as required by law.
  2. We do not share any information you have not chosen to display on your CertifiedPerson profile to other parties, unless compelled by law, or as necessary to enforce our User Agreement or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of CertifiedPerson, its Users, and the public.
  3. All information that you provide will be protected with industry standard protocols and technology.

We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time, so please review it frequently. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by means of a notice on our home page so that you may access and review the changes to this document in advance of your continued use of the service. If you object to any changes, you may close your account. By continuing to use the CertifiedPerson service after notice of changes has been sent to you or published on the CertifiedPerson website, you are consenting to the changes.

Please read this policy and send us questions, concerns and suggestions here. What CertifiedPerson’s Privacy Policy Covers:

  1. Information collected by CertifiedPerson.
  2. How CertifiedPerson uses your information.
  3. Your information choices.
  4. Your obligations as a User.
  5. Important information regarding service eligibility and US Department of Commerce Safe Harbor certification.

1. Information Collected

The mission of CertifiedPerson is to connect the world’s professionals to enable them to be more productive and successful. To achieve this mission, CertifiedPerson makes features and functionality available through our website, including our mobile and other applications, developer platform, premium services, and other information provided as part of the CertifiedPerson services ("Services") to enable professionals to develop, maintain and enhance a network of contacts, seek experts and consultants, fill job opportunities, create, share, and distribute information in collaboration with one another. By joining CertifiedPerson, you voluntarily and willingly provide CertifiedPerson, certain information, including personally identifiable information, which we collect in order to provide the Services. If you have any hesitation about providing information to us and/or having your information displayed on the CertifiedPerson website or otherwise used in any manner permitted in this Privacy Policy and the User Agreement, you should not become a member of the CertifiedPerson community; and, if you are already a member, you should close your account.

We collect your personal information in the following ways:

2. Uses of personal information

3. Your Obligations

As a User, you have certain obligations to other Users. Some of these obligations are imposed by applicable law and regulations, and others have become commonplace in user-friendly communities of like-minded members such as CertifiedPerson:

  1. You must, at all times, abide by the terms and conditions of the then-current Privacy Policy and User Agreement. This includes respecting all intellectual property rights that may belong to third parties (such as trademarks or photographs).
  2. You must not download or otherwise disseminate any information that may be deemed to be injurious, violent, offensive, racist or xenophobic, or which may otherwise violate the purpose and spirit of CertifiedPerson and its community of Users.
  3. You must not provide to CertifiedPerson and/or other Users information that you believe might be injurious or detrimental to your person or to your professional or social status.
  4. You must keep your username and password confidential and not share it with others.

Any violation of these guidelines may lead to the restriction, suspension or termination of your account at the sole discretion of CertifiedPerson.

4. Important Information

Children and Minors under the age of 18 are not eligible to use our service.

Changes to this Privacy Policy can be made at any time, with or without advance notice. In the event there are significant changes in the way we treat your personally identifiable information, or in the Privacy Policy document itself, we will display a notice on the CertifiedPerson website or send you an email, so that you may review the changed terms prior to continuing to use the site. As always, if you object to any of the changes to our terms, and you no longer wish to use CertifiedPerson, you may close your account. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Policy applies to all information that CertifiedPerson has about you and your account.

Using the CertifiedPerson Services after a notice of changes has been sent to you or published on our site shall constitute consent to the changed terms or practices.

5. Security

In order to help secure your personal information, access to your data on CertifiedPerson is password-protected, and sensitive data (such as credit card information) is protected by SSL encryption when it is exchanged between your web browser and the CertifiedPerson website. To protect any data you store on our servers, CertifiedPerson also regularly audits its system for possible vulnerabilities and attacks, and we use a tier-one secured-access data center. However, since the internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to CertifiedPerson. There is no guarantee that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. It is your responsibility to protect the security of your login information. Please note that emails, instant messaging, and similar means of communication with other Users of CertifiedPerson are not encrypted, and we strongly advise you not to communicate any confidential information through these means.
