FifthEdge is committed to protecting the privacy of your personal data collected at this website. This statement summarizes the policies of this website regarding the collection, use, and transfer of your personal data, and the security measures FifthEdge employs to protect such data.
The Information We Collect
FifthEdge reserves its right to share your personal information with its licensees and affiliates.
FifthEdge is a recruitment service and collects a variety of personal data necessary to provide these services. By choosing to enter your personal information on this site you indicate your willingness to disclose this information to FifthEdge and employers registered with it, and to be considered, when appropriate, for one of FifthEdge’s vacancies. If you do not wish to disclose this information, FifthEdge will be unable to provide you the services offered by this site, since employment, educational, and other personal information is necessary in order to assess your employment opportunities.
How We Use and Disclose Personally-Identifying Information
In order to present you as a candidate on a vacancy, your personal information may be provided to FifthEdge’s clients (potential employers), affiliates, and licensees. If you do not wish to participate in this service and benefit from the career opportunities that FifthEdge provides, please do not provide your personal information.
Information obtained is used only for the intended purposes stated. It is FifthEdge’s policy not to sell or share your personal information for related or unrelated purposes to non-licensee third parties, unless otherwise stated at the time of collection. If at any time we decide to use personal data in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will endeavor to notify you and give you a choice as to whether or not we use your information in this different manner. No notification and choice will be sought if FifthEdge is compelled or required by applicable law, statute, regulation, ordinance, or court order to disclose personal data.
How We Use and Disclose Non-Personally Identifying Information
Your personal information may also be used anonymously and in the aggregate in order to put together industry, marketing and employment statistics. Used in this matter, your personal information becomes non-identifying. FifthEdge also monitors IP addresses for security purposes, trend analysis, site administration, user movement tracking, and broad demographic information gathering for aggregate use. The IP address of the computer you use to access FifthEdge (the ‘internet street address’ of your computer) is not linked to any personal information you provide on the site.
Information Security and Integrity
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain accuracy of data and ensure proper use of information, FifthEdge has put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial security procedures to safeguard all information collected.
We will not process your personal information in a way that is incompatible with what is outlined in the Privacy Statement and will use our best efforts to ensure that data is accurate, complete, current and reliable for its intended use. We also will use our best efforts to protect your information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
Newsletter, Site/Service Updates, Surveys, and Contests
FifthEdge may offer newsletters to registered users of the site via email. If you wish to unsubscribe from a newsletter, please follow the directions at the bottom of the newsletter and you will be taken off the recipient list. If you thought the email you have received from our server is an unsolicited email, please contact us at Support@FifthEdge.net and we will follow up the matter.
FifthEdge will periodically send you website update information and service announcement updates via email. Because these announcements contain important information about FifthEdge’s service, as long as you remain a registered user, you will not be able to unsubscribe from these announcements. From time-to-time the site requests information from you via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is your choice and is completely voluntary as to whether to disclose information. Information requested may include contact information and demographic information. Contact information will be used to notify and award winners. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring, improving, or enhancing the use and satisfaction of the site.
Cookies are packets of information that are stored on your computer’s hard drive. At FifthEdge, cookies allow us to keep track of the areas of the site you visit and thereby offer you easy access to the information you find most relevant. They also allow us to greet you by name when you visit and to remember that you have already registered. No secure information or information about your personal identity is ever contained within our cookies. Your web browser is most likely set to automatically accept cookies, but you can consult your browser help file if you wish to change these settings. If you elect not to receive cookies, registered users will not be able to view a personalized home page, and will view the default homepage instead.
Resume Privacy Options
When you post/register your resume, FifthEdge automatically creates a registration for you using the email address and password that you supply. When you return to the site in the future you will use that same email address and password to access and edit your existing resume.
FifthEdge recognises that job seekers have different levels of comfort in posting their resume on the internet. To accommodate the needs of all users, FifthEdge offers three levels of privacy from which to choose from.
Standard Posting gives job seekers the most visibility to the broadest employer and/or recruiter audience possible, making the resume including full name and contact details searchable by all third-parties who have subscribed to FifthEdge’s database search service.
Private Posting will allow the resume to be searched, without the name or contact information being displayed. In this case, interested parties can only contact the candidate through FifthEdge.
Hidden Posting allows the user to post his/her resume on FifthEdge without permitting it to be searched by third parties. In this case, the resume can only be viewed by a third-party if the candidate applies for a vacancy advertised by that third-party.
In addition, FifthEdge distinguishes between ‘Employers’ and ‘Recruitment Agencies’ and allows users to specify their desired privacy and visibility options vis-à-vis each group separately.
