1. Information Collected
In addition, as part of the standard operation of the Site, Work in Ames may automatically collect and analyze information from your computer or mobile device, including, but not limited to, your browser type, operating system, IP address and the domain name from which you accessed the Site, and if you are accessing our Site with your mobile device, the type of mobile device. In addition, we may automatically record and analyze actions taken on the Site including, but not limited to, date and times of use, clicks, page views, the amount of time you spend on each page, and search queries. Work in Ames reserves the right to match your IP address (or any other information) with other information about you in any way permitted by applicable law. Work in Ames will store this information on its equipment or the equipment of third parties that Work in Ames has a relationship with for that purpose. If you create a Work in Ames account, information may be collected under your account email address.
If you access or use the Site on your mobile telephone or other mobile device, including tablets, we collect mobile device identifiers, including MAC Address, and IP Address. Work in Ames may create and assign to your device an identifier that is similar to an account number. We may collect the name you have associated with your device, device type, telephone number, country, and any other information you choose to provide, such as user name, geo-location or e-mail address
When a Job Seeker deletes an account, the Job Seeker will no longer have access to any of the data which we provided under that account name, including but not limited to, search history, job search preferences, saved jobs, jobs the Job Seeker has applied to, job alerts, resume, and any other data associated with the account. If the Job Seeker uses the same email address to set up a new account, this data will not become available to the Job Seeker again. Work in Ames reserves the right to keep any materials in a deleted account as necessary to preserve and protect its rights as allowed by law (for example, to preserve records of a dispute) or to comply with its obligations under local law (for example, to keep an email address). A deleted account does not mean that all of the data is expunged from the Work in Ames systems, although it will not be readily available under the Job Seeker’s original account name. When the Job Seeker or Employer submits a request to the site administrator to have their user account deleted, Work in Ames will begin to process that instruction within 24 hours and will have completed the operation within 40 days. Work in Ames must preserve business records pertaining to that account to comply with its obligations under law.
2. Uses and Disclosures of Information
Any information shared by you with Work in Ames may be shared with or transferred to any Work in Ames affiliated entity, for the purpose of providing you services and improving the Site. By using the Site, you consent to this transfer and acknowledge that the services provided to you and the functionality of the Site could not be provided without such a transfer. If you do not wish your information to be transferred in this way you should not use this Site.
3. Contact and Resume Information
When you give Work in Ames contact information (such as your name and email address) and demographic information, you agree that Work in Ames may utilize this information as set forth herein. You agree that Work in Ames may, as part of its services to you, communicate with you, or initiate communication with you on behalf of a third party, through your Work in Ames account or through other means such as email, telephone (including mobile phone), or postal mail, including through the use of contact information that you may provide to Work in Ames or that Work in Ames may otherwise obtain from third-party resources. If and to the extent permitted by applicable law, Work in Ames or its designated third-party partners may also use your contact information to (i) send you job alerts; (ii) create an account; and (iii) send you information about Work in Ames, including promotional materials. Work in Ames may use demographic and/or profile data to tailor your experience on the Site, show you content that Work in Ames thinks you may be interested in, and display content according to your preferences. Your information, including Personal Information, gets placed on the Site when you upload or edit a resume. To the extent you upload a resume or edit it, and subject to your Privacy Settings, you are making the resume, your name and other Personal Information that you place on your resume available to third parties who may be interested in you as an employee (and who may forward your resume and Personal Information to other third parties), to search engines, or to the general public by posting your Personal Information on the internet. You acknowledge that Work in Ames may determine whether the words of your resume or any other individuals’ resume match the words of certain job descriptions, and vice-versa, in order to improve the Site or any other Work in Ames product or service (including by displaying or otherwise making available potentially relevant job descriptions and resumes to job seekers and employers). If you post a public resume, this may be crawled by, and displayed through, search engines when someone searches for your name. This means that third parties can view the Personal Information contained in your resume and you may receive unsolicited contact from parties unaffiliated with Work in Ames and for whom Work in Ames has no responsibility. If you do not want your Personal Information posted on the Site, you should not upload it. You may opt-out of this feature on a going-forward basis by editing your Privacy Settings; however, Work in Ames does not warrant how often third-party search engines will update their caches, which may continue to contain your resume information. Work in Ames reserves the right to charge third parties a fee for accessing your information, including Personal Information, as part of Work in Ames’ services. At your direction, Work in Ames may also send your resume to third parties if you choose to apply for a job listing.
4. Additional Uses and Disclosures of Non-Personal Information
Work in Ames seeks to use reasonable security measures to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the Personal Information under Work in Ames’ control. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. In addition, please note that emails, messages sent via your web browser, and other similar means of communication with other users, are not encrypted. We strongly advise you not to communicate any confidential or sensitive information through these means. Therefore, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its security. Please also be aware that we may use third-party cloud service providers that provide hosting, data storage and other services pursuant to standard terms and conditions that may be non-negotiable; these service providers have informed us or the general public that they apply security measures they consider adequate for the protection of information within their system, or they have a general reputation for applying such measures. However, we will not be liable (to the fullest extent permitted by law) for any damages that may result from the misuse of any information, including Personal Information, by these companies.

WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE INFORMATION COLLECTION, USAGE, DISCLOSURE OR OTHER PRIVACY PRACTICES OF ANY THIRD PARTY, INCLUDING OUR AFFILIATES, THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS, ANY EMPLOYERS (INCLUDING ANY EMPLOYER THAT PROVIDES A COMPANY PAGE), ANY THIRD-PARTY SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM, ANY THIRD PARTY MAKING AVAILABLE THE DEVICES OR OPERATING SYSTEMS FOR WHICH THE SITE IS AVAILABLE, AND ANY THIRD PARTY OPERATING ANY WEBSITE TO WHICH THE SITE CONTAINS A LINK.
