Federal Executive Talent Bank is committed to protecting the privacy of our users, and strives to provide a safe user experience. This Privacy Policy describes how we collect and use online data.

By using this site or application, you agree to the collection, use and transfer of your data as described in this Privacy Policy.

If you do not want your information to be collected, used, and transferred as described by this policy, you may revoke your consent to our Privacy Policy. To revoke your consent, please click here to contact us. If you revoke your consent, your account and profile information will be removed from our website.

Information collected on our sites and applications is stored in the United States; therefore, your information may become subject to U.S. law.

Scope of this Policy

This policy applies to information we collect or use on sites and applications owned or controlled by Federal Executive Talent LLC (“Federal Executive Talent”).

Federal Executive Talent is not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of other websites. You may wish to review the privacy policies of those sites so you can understand how they collect, use, and share your information.

Information We Collect

We collect information about you when you use our sites and applications. We collect information directly from you such as your contact information, resume, and profile information. We receive and store this information when you enter it on our website, send it to us, or provide it to us in any other way.

We also collect information about you automatically as necessary for the operation of the web site. For example, we automatically collect information about how you use our sites and mobile applications, the areas of our site that you visit, as well as information about your computer or mobile device including your IP address, device ID, physical location, browser and operating system type, and referring URLs. This information is necessary for providing personalized and location-based content as well as for analyzing web traffic, troubleshooting problems, preventing fraud, and improving our services. We may combine this information with information in your account to help prevent fraud.

We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from Federal Executive Talent if your computer supports this type of program.

How We Use Information

We use the information we collect to provide our services, respond to you, operate and improve our sites and applications, and foster a positive user experience.

By registering with Federal Executive Talent, by managing your profile, or by opting in when presented with choices, you have consented for us to use your information in the following ways:

Some of our products and services, such as our resume and profile database, are accessible by selected third parties. While Federal Executive Talent takes measures to safeguard your information from unauthorized access or inappropriate use, Federal Executive Talent does not control these third parties and therefore we are not responsible for their use of information you give to us. Accordingly, you should not post sensitive information, profiles, or other information you would not want made public, to any Federal Executive Talent site or application or to a public website.

How We Share Information

We provide you with a platform to import information about yourself for the purposes of maximizing your job opportunities. The information we gather may be shared within Federal Executive Talent. We do not share contact information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless you affirmatively agree to such disclosure.

We may share your information with third parties who help deliver our products and services to you. Examples include hosting our web servers, including resume database storage, analyzing data, and providing customer service. These companies will have access to your personal information as necessary to perform their functions, but they may not use that data for any other purpose. We will remain responsible for any information shared in this way.

We may disclose information if legally required to do so, or at our discretion pursuant to a request from a governmental entity or if we believe in good faith – after considering your privacy interests and other factors – that such action is necessary to: (a) meet legal requirements or comply with legal process; (b) protect our rights or property or our affiliated companies; (c) prevent a crime or protect national security; or (d) protect the personal safety of users or the public.

We may disclose and transfer information to a third party who acquires any or all of Federal Executive Talent’s business units, whether such acquisition is by way of merger, consolidation or purchase of all or a substantial portion of our assets. In addition, in the event Federal Executive Talent becomes the subject of an insolvency proceeding, such information will be disposed of in a transaction approved by the court. You will be notified of the sale of all or a substantial portion of our business to a third party by email or through a prominent notice posted on the site.

We may disclose information to additional third parties, if you consent.

An Important Note About Your Resume

As mentioned above in "How We Share Information", we attempt to limit access to only legitimate users. However, we cannot control the use of resumes and profiles after disclosure to a third party. Once your resume or profile has been disclosed, Federal Executive Talent is not able to retrieve it from the third parties who accessed it.

You may remove your resume and profile from our database at any time. If you do not have an account with us, we may require you to provide us with information about yourself so we can locate your profile and delete it. However anyone who viewed your resume or profile may have kept a copy of it in their own files or databases. Accordingly, you should not put sensitive information, personality profiles, or other information you would not want made public, in your resume or profile.

If you provide us with details of a reference, it is your responsibility to ensure that the person is aware that you have forwarded his/her details and has consented in writing for you to do so.

Resumes or profiles you give to us must not contain sensitive data relating to your (i) racial or ethnic origin (ii) political beliefs (iii) philosophical or religious beliefs (iv) membership of a trade union or political party (v) physical or mental health or biometric details or genetic makeup (vi) addictions, sexual life (vii) the commission of criminal offences or proceedings and associated penalties or fines, (viii) the commission of any unlawful or objectionable conduct and associated penalties, or (ix) any Social Security Number or national identification number. If your resume or profile does contain this information, then you agree that it is at your own risk. We cannot control third parties’ access to such information from our database.

How We Store Information

We retain all the information we gather about you until you change or remove your personal information as described below. You may access, review, correct, update, change or delete your resume or profile at any time. Sign in to your account, go to your resume or profile, and make the desired changes. If you do not have an account, you can create one yourself, or contact us.

Access to, correction, update, or deletion of your personal information may be denied or limited by Federal Executive Talent if it would violate another person’s rights and/or as otherwise permitted by applicable law. If you wish to delete your account information altogether, please contact us. We will send you an email to confirm that your personal information has been deleted (save for an archival copy which is not accessible by you or third parties on the Internet). The archival copy is retained only for as long as needed for audit and record purposes. We will also keep logs and information that may relate to your activity on the site.

We will respond to information access requests without undue delay of receipt and in any event within 30 days. If we require additional time to provide access to your information, we will acknowledge receipt of your request within 30 days and promptly supplement our response within the time period required by applicable law.

Security

You are responsible for keeping your username and password secret.

Federal Executive Talent takes appropriate security measures to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. However, the Internet is an open system and we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes.

When you sign up, and create a profile, your information is encrypted with industry standard encryption.

Children

Federal Executive Talent is not intended for, nor do we knowingly collect information from, children under the age of 13.
