General Policy
When visiting our web pages, our server recognizes the visitor's domain name and IP address, but not their email address. It is a common practice for webmasters to monitor visitors on their website. We also note the visitor's browser type, version, and operating system, among other things. This information is transmitted to our server by each visitor's web browser. This visitor information is used by us to improve the content of our site by identifying the most popular areas of this website. We use Google Analytics to obtain this information for us, and prepare it into informational graphs and tables. Visitors may opt-out here.

Free Resume Creator and Directory
Our creators require that our visitors input their information to generate the documents job seekers need to apply for jobs. There are two modes for using this site, being a free member or a free non-member.

1. Non-members: There are no paying non-members! We do not use the information used to create a resume and other documents on this site for any purpose other than to create the related document. When a visitor uses a creator, all their data are never stored, so when they leave the system, the data are gone. When a visitor enters their information into our program, their information is not stored in our database unless they elect to become a member. The only way for non-members to save their information is to press the Save button on the Preview page in the program. The program generates a file that the visitor will export and store locally on their device.

2. Members: There are no paying members! It should be obvious that membership is necessary to be able to log in to our system. Alternatively, to be able to access a resume or display a resume online in our directory, the database would need to store the information. We will not take this action without the visitor's permission. They will be asked to complete a form to create a username, password, and then input other info. They will be asked to read our Terms page and this Privacy Policy, so they understand how our system operates. While logged in subsequent edits and updates that they save to the account are also stored.

If the visitor chooses to become a member by creating an account, they may set their resume to be public. Then, excluding their house number, street, and telephone numbers, all information entered into the free resume creator will be viewable by anyone who browses the Resume Directory. If upon joining, the visitor sets their account to be Private, then their resume will not show in the directory. A member who doesn't want a public resume or a member who later changes their mind and no longer wants it to be public can simply log in to their account and change the account to be Private at will. In the interest of helping our members get the highest possible exposure to the job market, internet search engines index our directory. Indexing can make it searchable in Google, Yahoo, and other search engines. If a member wishes to avoid having their resume information made public in our directory, we suggest that they set their resume to be Private. Visitors can make this selection when they join to become a member or later in their Resume Account settings.

If a member no longer wants to use their account, they can delete their account along with their stored information at any time. Two methods can perform this operation. The first method happens when the member logs in and deletes the account themselves. The second method happens when the member emails our support staff and requests that a support agent does it for them.

These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.
