In addition, K12USJobs.com may collect indirect information about you when you use certain third party services on our website. For example, if you provide a title of ‘Mrs.’ we will assume you are female.

Disclosure of Information to Others
We disclose to third parties within your country and abroad your personal information, combined personal, demographic, behavioral or indirect information, as set forth below:
- We may share your information with third parties who help us in the delivery of our own products and services to you. We disclose information to companies and individuals we employ to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include hosting our web servers, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. These companies and individuals may be located in a country whose data protection legislation is different from your country, and they will have access to your personal information as necessary to perform their functions, but they may not share that information with any other third party or use that data for any other purpose. We will remain responsible for any information shared in this way.
- We may disclose your contact information to select third parties such as employers, recruiters, data aggregators, marketers or others for the purpose of sending you e-mail or otherwise communicating with you. We use data we have about you (such as the interests and preferences you have expressed) to determine whether you might be interested in the opportunities, products or services of a particular third party. We also share aggregated anonymous information about visitors to the website with K12USJobs.com clients, partners, other website visitors, and other third parties so that they can understand the kinds of visitors to the website and how those visitors use the website. We may also aggregate on an anonymous basis data regarding job qualifications, schooling, age, experience level or other information relevant to the job search or competition among job seekers for any such job. Such aggregated data does not identify users individually, and may be made available to employers or fellow job seekers or community members.
- We 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) conform to 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. Because K12USJobs.com LLC is a US company and information collected on our website is stored in whole or in part in the United States, your information may become subject to U.S. law.
- We may disclose and transfer such information to a third party who acquires any or all of K12USJobs.com’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 K12USJobs.com becomes the subject of an insolvency proceeding, whether voluntary or involuntary, K12USJobs.com or its liquidator, administrator, receiver or administrative receiver may sell, license or otherwise dispose of such information 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 Sites. Again, in each of these situations, the recipients of your data may potentially be located in any country in the world. If you are a resident in any EU member state, for example, you must be aware that the EU authorities do not generally consider that the regulations of non-EU countries ensure an adequate or equivalent level of protection as compared to the EU data protection regulations.
An Important Note about Your Resume
When you create or post a resume to the website, that resume is stored in our resume database in the United States. If you apply online to a job, your resume will be transferred to the relevant employer, who may retain a copy of your resume or distribute it to third parties. We cannot control their use or retention of your resume information.
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.
Your Choices About Your Information

Simply log into your account, go to your profile or resume, and make the necessary changes. You may delete your resume from K12USJobs.com’s online database at any time by accessing your account. Before providing you with a copy of your personal information or correcting, updating or deleting such information, we reserve the right to verify and authenticate your identity and the personal information to which you have requested access. Access to or correction, updating or deletion of your personal information may be denied or limited by K12USJobs.com if it would violate another person’s rights and/or as otherwise permitted by applicable law.

If you wish to delete or close your account or account profile information altogether, please contact us at contact@K12USJobs.com. An email will be sent to you 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 K12USJobs.com reasonably considers necessary for audit and record purposes. We will also retain logs, demographic, indirect, and statistical information that may relate to you but do not identify you personally. If your personal information was previously accessed by others using our websites, we are not able to delete the information or copies thereof from their systems.
If you do not log into your account for a significant period of time, it will expire and be scheduled for deletion. Our current expiration and deletion period is 12 months; we may extend or reduce this period in order to adjust to changing hiring patterns. If we change the period, we will update this notice. You will, always receive an email from us before we delete your resume, and you always have the ability to delete your resume at any time by logging into your account. Deletion of expired accounts occurs on a periodic basis and includes the deletion of all applicable account data including resumes and contact information.
If you previously opted to receive newsletters, commercial e-mails or other communications from K12USJobs.com or third parties, but subsequently change your mind, you may opt-out by editing your account profile. If you previously opted not to receive such communications, you may later opt-in by editing your account profile.
You are responsible for ensuring that your login credentials (your username and password) are kept confidential.
K12USJobs.com has implemented technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. Notwithstanding such measures, 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. Moreover, one of our primary purposes is to provide you with a platform to broadcast the information in your resume and profile widely in order to maximize your career opportunities. Such an environment does present a risk that unauthorized third parties will view this data. Further, your resume should not contain any sensitive data that you would not want made public. You should be aware that resumes may be monitored by your current employer.
When you place an order online at K12USJobs.com, your credit card information is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) protocol. SSL makes it difficult for your credit card information to be intercepted or stolen while being transmitted. K12USJobs.com uses a service company to process its credit card transactions. For further information on this company’s privacy and security practices.
Privacy of Children
K12USJobs.com is not intended for, nor do we knowingly collect information from, children under the age of 13.
Changes to Privacy Statement
If we decide to materially change the substance of this Privacy Statement, we will, where required, contact you via the email address that you maintain in your profile. We will also post those changes through a prominent notice on the web site so that you will always know what information we gather and how we might use that information.
Legal and Contact Information
Your data is submitted to ConstructionJobs.com and is hosted and stored in a database on servers situated in the United States.

Your California Rights
A California resident who has provided personal information to a business with whom he/she has established a business relationship for personal, family, or household purposes (“California customer”) is entitled to request information about whether the business has disclosed personal information to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes.

California customers may request further information about our compliance with this law by contacting us online at contact@K12USJobs.com.
