You can generally visit our Site without revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself. However, in certain sections of this Site, to use certain services, we may require you to create an account or provide you the right to post your resume on our Site. Due to the nature of some of these activities, we may ask that you complete and submit an online form with personally identifiable information such as your name, username, email address and contact information.
Uses of Information
We may use your personally identifiable information to deliver certain services or information you have requested, verify your authority to enter certain password protected areas of the Site or send you user specific or service-related announcements from time to time regarding updates at the Site, such as new Razume opportunities and additional features which may be of interest to you. Additionally, if you receive new comments on your resume or receive new requests to review user resumes, you may receive emails alerting you to that fact. Generally, you may opt out of such emails through your account settings, though Razume reserves the right to send you notices about your account even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.
We have an area where you can submit feedback. Any feedback you submit in this area becomes our property, and we can use such feedback for marketing purposes or contact you for further information.
Since Razume is a resume review community, we provide you the option of uploading your resume to our database. When posting a resume, we require all contact information to be blocked using our contact information redaction system. During the resume uploading process, you will have access the redaction system in step two and will be able to view and confirm redaction of your personal information in step three. Compliance with our guidelines ensures that all personal contact information including name, address, email address, phone number, personal web address and other information is blocked from view. See our Terms of Service for more details.
Once contact information is properly redacted from a resume, it will not be viewable by the general public who access the Site. However, to facilitate connections between Razume users and prescreened employers, redacted contact information on resumes may be viewable by paying employers, recruiters, hiring managers, headhunters, university career consultants and human resource professionals, as well as law enforcement and national security agencies. Razume attempts to provide resume contact information strictly to those parties mentioned above, but cannot guarantee that other parties will not gain access to your resume contact information.
We are not responsible for the use made of resumes by third parties who access such resumes while they are in our searchable database. You may remove your resume from our searchable database at any time or you may opt out of providing access to contact information on your resume by changing your account settings. However, employers, recruiters and others who have paid for access to that database or to obtain a copy of that database, as well as parties who have otherwise gained access to the database, may have retained a copy of your resume in their own files or databases. We are not responsible for the retention, use or privacy of resumes in these instances.
We may use small text files called cookies to improve the overall Site experience. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Cookies generally do not permit us to personally identify you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, when you register for services, a cookie helps us to recall your specific information (such as user name, password and preferences).
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
Updating Your Account Information
You can access your personally identifiable information that we collect and maintain on the Site by visiting your account settings page. On the account settings page, you can opt out of any of the provisions regarding information privacy that are discussed above.
Should you have other questions or concerns about these privacy policies, please send us an email at privacy(at)razume.com.
