Your Privacy is Important to Us
Purepost’s mission is to connect military service members, students, first time job seekers and working professionals to a network of career support resources that enable career advancement for all.
Our registered users (“Members”) share their work experience and competencies, engage with their network of career support organizations and talent professionals, acquire skills from knowledge centers, and pursue career opportunities.
Content and data on some of our Services is viewable to non-members (“Visitors”).
For California residents, additional disclosures required by California law may be found below in the California Consumer Privacy Act section.
If you object to any changes, you may close your account.
1. Data Collected or Received from You
1.1 Data You Provide To Us
If you want to use certain features of the Services you’ll have to create an account (“Account”). To create an Account you need to provide data including your name, email address, and a password.
Members that are U.S. military service members or Veterans may provide a service record that describes your professional military experience. We will not disclose to third parties the original documentation of your military service that you upload to our Services, and we will maintain those documents in encrypted, secure storage.
To establish and secure your profile information, you need to enable 2-factor authentication by providing a valid phone number. We will not use your phone number to send any commercial or marketing messages to you.
You have choices about the information on your profile, such as your work experience details, education, skills, location and photo. You don’t have to provide additional information on your profile; however, profile information helps you to get more from our Services, including helping recruiters find you and partners assist you. It’s your choice whether to include sensitive information on your profile and to make that sensitive information public. Please do not post or add personal data to your profile that you would not want to be publicly available.
Posting and Uploading
We collect personal data from you when you provide, post or upload it to our Services, such as when you fill out a form, (e.g., with demographic data or salary), respond to a survey, or import a resume on our Services.
You don’t have to post or upload personal data; though if you don’t, it may limit your ability to take full advantage of our Services.
1.2 Data From Others
We receive personal data (including contact information) about you when others send messages using our Services (including invites).
Customer and Partner Directory Information
Customers and partners using our Services, such as a school or employment service organization, may share a directory of contact information with us to effectively provide career support through our Services. Each customer or partner chooses what information to include in their directory, which may include your personal data (including contact information), major area of study, mailing address, or documents such as a resume.
1.3 Service Use
We log usage data when you visit or otherwise use our Services, including our sites, app and platform technology, such as when you view or click on content (e.g., learning video), perform a search, or apply for jobs. We use log-ins, cookies, device information and internet protocol (“IP”) addresses to identify you and log your use.
1.4 Cookies and Similar Technologies
1.5 Your Device and Location
When you visit or leave our Services (including some plugins and our cookies or similar technology on the sites of others), we receive the URL of both the site you came from and the one you go to and the time of your visit. We also get information about your network and device (e.g., IP address, proxy server, operating system, web browser and add-ons, device identifier and features, cookie IDs and/or ISP, or your mobile carrier). If you use our Services from a mobile device, that device will send us data about your location based on your phone settings. We will ask you to opt-in before we use GPS or other tools to identify your precise location.
We collect information about you when you send, receive, or engage with messages in connection with our Services. For example, if you get an instant message from another Member or partner, we track whether you have acted on it and will send you reminders.
Our Services are dynamic, and we often introduce new features, which may require the collection of new information. If we collect materially different personal data or materially change how we collect, use or share your data, we will notify you and may also modify this
2. How We Use Your Data
How we use your personal data will depend on which Services you use, how you use those Services and the choices you make in your settings.
We use the data that we have about you to provide and improve our Services, to administer your use of the Services (including your account, if you are an Account Holder) and to enable you to enjoy and easily navigate our Services.
We use your data to authorize access to our Services and honor your settings.
Connect with Partner Networks
Our Services allow you to connect with partners that provide guidance, coaching, mentorship and other career support resources. To do so, you can register your profile with support partners of your choosing and request support or schedule appointments. Partners may share job opportunities and communications from potential employers by email in accordance with your account settings and communication preferences.
We use data about you (such as your profile, profiles you have viewed or data provided by our partners) to help others find your profile, suggest connections for you and others (e.g. Partners who may assist with your career goals) and enable you to invite others to become a Member.
It is your choice whether to invite someone to our Services or register with a partner. When you invite someone to connect with you, your invitation will include your basic profile information (e.g., name, job title, summary data). We will send invitation reminders to the person you invited.
Visitors have choices about how we use their data.
Our Services allow you to stay informed about relevant topics from your registered support partners. Our Services also allow you to improve your professional skills, or learn new ones. We use the data we have about you (e.g., data you provide, data we collect from your engagement with our Services and inferences we make from the data we have about you), to personalize our Services for you, such as by suggesting skills you could add to your profile and skills that you might need to pursue your next opportunity. If you let us know that you are interested in a new skill (e.g., by watching a learning video), we will use this information to suggest related learning content to help you towards that new skill.
Our Services allow you to explore careers, evaluate educational opportunities, and seek out, and be found for, career opportunities. Your profile can be found by those looking to hire (for a job or a specific task). We will use your data to recommend jobs or mentees, show you and others relevant professional contacts (e.g., who work at a company, in an industry, function or location or have certain skills). We will use your data to recommend jobs to you and you to recruiters. We may use automated systems to provide content and recommendations to help make our Services more relevant to our Members, Visitors and customers. Keeping your profile accurate and up to-date may help you better connect to others and to opportunities through our Services.
Our Services allow you to collaborate and communicate with our partners, request guidance and schedule appointments with them.
We will contact you through email, mobile phone, notices posted on our websites or apps, instant messages, and other ways through our Services. We will send you messages about the availability of our Services, security, or other service-related issues. We also send messages about how to use our Services, reminders, promotional messages from us and our partners. You may change your communication preferences at any time. Please be
aware that you cannot opt out of receiving service messages from us, including security and legal notices.
We also enable communications between you and others through our Services, including for example invitations, instant messages, and profile comments.
2.3 Developing Services and Research
We use data, including public feedback, to conduct research and development for our Services in order to provide you and others with a better, more intuitive and personalized experience, drive engagement on our Services, and help connect professionals to each other and to economic opportunity.
We seek to create economic opportunity for Members of the global workforce and to help them be more productive and successful. We use the personal data available to us to research social, economic and workplace trends, such as jobs availability and skills needed for these jobs and policies that help bridge the gap in various industries and geographic areas. In some cases, we work with trusted third parties to perform this research, under controls that are designed to protect your privacy. We publish or allow others to publish economic insights, presented as aggregated data rather than personal data.
Polls and surveys are conducted by us and others through our Services. You are not obligated to respond to polls or surveys.
