Information Collection and Use
A user must register in order to utilize the job search and candidate matching service. During registration, a user is required to provide certain categories of information, such as name, address, college information, e-mail address and password. In addition, a user may choose to provide other categories of information, such as career objectives, prior work history, job related skills and other job search related information. FW encourages its users to provide all of these fields of information so that users may maximize the effectiveness of the job search and candidate matching services.
Passive Collection of Information :
In addition to the information that you actively provide to FW by methods such as completing the registration form, FW collects information about how you interact with our site. FW collects passive information for purposes such as testing and improving a user's experience at the site and the compilation of broad aggregate demographic data and related usage information for internal purposes and for disclosure to third parties such as advertisers and content partners. The types of passive information collected by this site include, without limitation, your IP address, which type of browser you are using, where you go on our site, and how long you stay on any part of our site. Passive information does not identify you to FW by name, and FW does not link your IP address to your personally identifiable information.
Optional Information :
At various other points during your visit to FW, you may be asked to provide information about yourself. For example, you may indicate that you wish to participate in a partner company sponsored contest. At this point your information would become the property of both FW and the partner co-sponsoring the contest. In instances such as this, FW is not responsible for the information that the partner company receives. Participation in surveys or contests or the use of other services that require the input of additional information is completely voluntary on your part, and you have the choice about whether to disclose the information necessary to use these features of our site.
Use of Information
The information that you supply to FW enables us to provide job search and candidate matching services. In addition, FW uses your information in order to customize our site to your interests and enhance your overall experience at our site. FW tries to recognize you using various methods, including having you log in with your e-mail address and your password. Once FW recognizes you, pages, advertisements and other content may be customized for you so that you can see what interests you the most. In addition, as described above, FW utilizes passive information to learn more about how you interact with our site. This passive information may be combined with your other information for purposes such as testing and improving your experience at our site and the compilation of broad aggregate demographic data and related usage information for internal purposes and for disclosure to third parties such as advertisers and content partners. This aggregate passive information does not contain any personal information that can identify any individual user.
