Collection and Retention of Information
In order to provide you the services of GeographyJobs.com, in some areas of our Web sites, GeographyJobs.com requests or may request that you provide personal information, including your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, contact information, billing information and any other information from which your identity is discernible. In order to continually enhance your use of GeographyJobs.com and to provide you requested information about GeographyJobs.com third party partners, in other areas, GeographyJobs.com may collect demographic information that is not unique to you such as your postal code, preferences, interests and favourites. Sometimes we collect or may collect a combination of the two types of information. Examples of areas on the GeographyJobs.com Web site where we collect personal or combined personal and demographic data are pages where you can open a My GeographyJobs account, sign up to use a service, post a resume, or purchase a product.
In addition, GeographyJobs.com may indirectly collect information about you when you use certain third party services on our Web site. Such information may be used for the purpose of determining your potential interest in additional services offered by our third party partners.
We also gather or may gather certain information about your use of our site, such as what areas you visit and what services you access. Moreover, there is information about your computer hardware and software that is or may be collected by GeographyJobs.com. This information can include without limitation your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used to evaluate different aspects of the GeographyJobs.com Web Site. The information may also be used for site security and law enforcement purposes.
GeographyJobs.com may sometimes afford you the opportunity to provide descriptive, cultural, behavioural, preferential and/or life style information about yourself, but it is solely up to you whether you furnish such information. For example, such information may be used for the purpose of determining your potential interest in receiving email or other communications about particular products or services.
You can correct or update your My GeographyJobs account profile and resume at any time. Moreover, you can delete your resume from our online database or close your My GeographyJobs account at any time, in which event we will remove all our copies of your resume and My GeographyJobs account profile information except for an archival copy which is not accessible on the Internet that does not contain any personal identifying information.

Disclosure of Information to Others
We do not disclose to third parties your personal information, combined personal and demographic information or information about your use of the GeographyJobs.com Web site (such as the areas you visit or the services you access), except as set forth in the following four subparagraphs.
1. We may disclose such information to third parties if you consent to such disclosure. For example, if you indicate that you would like to receive information about the products or services of third parties at the time you register for a My GeographyJobs account, we may supply your contact information to 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 may use data we have about you (such as the interests and preferences you have expressed) to determine whether you might be interested in the products or services of a particular third-party.
2. We may disclose such information to companies and individuals we employ to perform functions on our behalf. Examples may include hosting our Web servers, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. These companies and individuals 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.
3. We may disclose such information if legally required to do so, if requested to do so by a governmental entity, including a governmental entity of Canada, or if we believe in good faith that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process; (b) protect the rights or property of GeographyJobs.com or its affiliated companies; (c) prevent a crime or protect national security; or (d) protect the personal safety of users or the public.
4. We may disclose and transfer such information to a third party who acquires all or a substantial portion of GeographyJobs.com's business, 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 GeographyJobs.com becomes the subject of a bankruptcy proceeding, whether voluntary or involuntary, GeographyJobs.com or its trustee in bankruptcy may sell, license or otherwise dispose of such information in a transaction approved by the bankruptcy court.
GeographyJobs.com may also share aggregated anonymous information about visitors to its Web site with its clients, partners and other third parties so that they may understand the kinds of visitors that visit GeographyJobs.com's site and how those visitors use the site.
Since GeographyJobs.com is a career site, we give you the option of putting your Resumé in our database. There are two ways of doing this:
1. You can store your Resumé in our database, but not allow it to be searchable by potential employers. Not allowing your resume to be searchable means that you can use it to apply for a job online, but employers and recruiters will not have access to search it through our resume database product.
2. If you allow your resume to be searchable, then all parties with access to our searchable resume database (or copies thereof) will have access to your resume.
We attempt to limit access to our searchable resume database (or copies thereof) to employers, recruiters, hiring managers, headhunters, and human resource professionals, as well as law enforcement and national security agencies, but cannot guarantee that other parties will not gain access to this database. 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 database at any time. However, employers, recruiters and others who have gained 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.
