1. Collection of Information

1.1. User Direct Information

Each time you provide information to register your information, take advantage of a promotional offer, send us an email, or otherwise transmit information via the site, JobNation may obtain and collect personally identifiable information provided by you, including, but not limited to, your name, email address, mailing address, and telephone number. You may also provide us with information that, when combined with personally identifiable information, provides us with a better idea of who you are, including but not limited to your gender, birthday, marital status, and education level (collectively referred to as "personal information"). If you choose to access our website, use our services or purchase our products, we may require you to provide personal information as indicated on the forms throughout the site. You are not obligated to provide us with any information which you do not wish to share.

1.2. Registration Information

This information may be collected by registration pages, order forms, or surveys operated by third parties. This method of collection is collectively known as a "Registration." JobNation may also collect such information concerning you from another source and uses that information in combination with information provided from this website. Completing the Registration is completely voluntary, and you are under no obligation to provide Survey Information to JobNation or a third party, but you may receive incentives from JobNation or a third party in exchange for providing such information.

1.3. Third Party List Information

JobNation may collect information from you when you provide information to a third party and JobNation subsequently purchases, licenses, or otherwise acquires the information from the third party.

When acquiring this information, JobNation seeks assurances from the third party that it has a right to transfer the information to JobNation and that the third party has a right to provide offers from advertisers to you included on the third party list.

1.4. Other Methods of Collecting Personal Information

Other occasions when JobNation obtains information from you include (1) your claiming a prize or seeking to redeem an incentive offered by JobNation or by a third party, (2) your requests for assistance through JobNation's customer service, and (3) when you voluntarily subscribe to a JobNation service or newsletter.

1.5. Cookies, Web Beacons, and Other Info Collected Using Technology

JobNation currently uses cookie and web beacon technology to associate certain Internet-related information about you with information about you in its database. Additionally, JobNation may use other new and evolving sources of information in the future.

(a) Cookies

"Cookies" are a feature on your browser software. If enabled, we may write cookies that may store small amounts of data on your computer about your visit to any of the pages of this Site. Cookies assist us in tracking which of our features appeal the most to you and what content you may have viewed on past visits. When you visit this site again, cookies can enable us to customize our content according to your preferences. We may use cookies to: keep track of the number of return visits to this site; accumulate and report aggregate, statistical information on website usage; deliver specific content to you based on your interests or past viewing history; save your password for ease of access to our Site. You can disable cookies, although the Site may not function properly for you. Your browser preferences can be modified to accept or reject all cookies, or request a notification when a cookie is set. You may read more about cookies at http://cookiecentral.com. In order to use all of the features and functionality of JobNation's websites, you need to accept cookies.

(b) Web Beacons

A web beacon is a programming code that can be used to display an image on a web page, but can also be used to transfer your unique user identification to a database and associate you with previously acquired information about an individual in a database. This allows JobNation to track certain websites you visit. Web beacons are used to track online behavioral habits for marketing purposes to determine products or services you may be interested in.

(c) IP Addresses

JobNation automatically tracks certain information based upon your behavior on the site. We may use this information to do internal research on our users' demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand, protect and serve you and our community. This information may include the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on the site or not), which URL you next go to (whether this URL is on the site or not), your computer browser information, and your IP address. Your Internet Protocol ("IP") is a unique Internet "address" which is assigned to you by your Internet Service Provider ("ISP"). For local area network ("LAN"), DSL, or cable modem users, an IP address may be permanently assigned to a particular computer. IP addresses are automatically logged by Web servers, collecting information about a user's traffic patterns. While the IP address does not identify an individual by name, it may, with the cooperation of the ISP, be used to locate and identify an individual using the Web. Your IP address can, however, reveal what geographic area you are connecting from, or which ISP you are using. Finally, other websites you visit have IP addresses, and we may collect the IP addresses of those websites and their pages.

(d) Computer Profiles

JobNation may also collect and accumulate other anonymous data which will help us understand and analyze the Internet experience of our visitors. For instance, JobNation may accumulate visitor data relating to referring domain names, the type of browsers used, operating system software, screen resolutions, color capabilities, browser plug-ins, language settings, cookie preferences, search engine keywords and JavaScript enablement. When you provide us with Personal Identification Information, we are able to use such visitor data to identify you.

(e) New Technology

The use of technology on the Internet, including cookies and web beacons, is rapidly developing. As a result, JobNation strongly encourages individuals to revisit this policy for any updates regarding its use of new technology.

1.6. No Information Collected from Users under 13 Years of Age

JobNation requires its registrants be 13 years of age or above. JobNation will never knowingly collect any personal information about users under the age of 13. If JobNation obtains actual knowledge that it has collected personal information about a child under the age of 13, that information will be immediately deleted from its database. Because it does not collect such information, JobNation has no such information to use or to disclose to third parties.

2. Use of Individual Information

The following section describes how JobNation uses personal information. The uses described in these sections may change at any time. JobNation may also broaden its use of your personal information. JobNation may also use your personal information to provide commercial promotional offers to individuals or entities through, among other things, email advertising, telephone marketing, direct mail marketing, banner advertising and package stuffers.

2.1. Discretion to Use Information

The personal information collected on this site and by third parties will be used to operate the site and to provide the services or products or carry out the transactions you have requested or authorized. JobNation may change or broaden its use of your personal information at any time. JobNation may use your personal information to provide promotional offers to individuals by means of email advertising, telephone marketing, direct mail marketing, online banner advertising, and package stuffers, and other possible uses.

JobNation MAY SELL OR TRANSFER INDIVIDUAL INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES FOR ANY LEGALLY PERMISSIBLE PURPOSE IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION.

2.2. Email

JobNation uses your personal information to provide promotional offers by email to you. JobNation may maintain separate email lists for different purposes. To unsubscribe from all JobNation's email lists, you must submit your email address at Unsubscribe. Such an unsubscribe request will permanently delete your email from all lists used by JobNation. Because JobNation only sends emails when you have agreed to receive emails from JobNation or you have agreed to receive emails from third parties, statutes requiring certain formatting for unsolicited email are not applicable to email messages sent by JobNation.

2.3. Profiling and Target Advertising

JobNation uses your information to make and improve profiles of you and to track your online browsing habits and determine which areas of JobNation's websites are most frequently visited. This information helps JobNation to better understand your interests so that it can target advertising and promotions to you. JobNation may, at its discretion, target advertising by using email, direct mail, telephones, cell phones, and other means of communication to provide promotional offers.

2.4. Storage of Personal Information

JobNation stores your information in a database on JobNation's servers. Our servers have security measures (provided by our hosting company) in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under JobNation's control. Notwithstanding such measures, JobNation cannot guarantee that its security measures will prevent JobNation computers from being illegally accessed, and your information from being stolen or altered.
