Safe Harbor Principles
CPI shall inform an individual of the purpose for which it collects and uses the Personal Information and the types of non-agent third parties to which we disclose or may disclose that Information. CPI will provide individuals with the choice and means for limiting the use and disclosure of their Personal Information. Notice will be provided when individuals are first asked to provide Personal Information, or as soon as practicable thereafter, and in any event before CPI uses or discloses the Information for a purpose other than for which it was originally collected.
CPI uses the information we gather on the CPI Career Portal Site, whether personal, demographic, collective or technical, for the purpose of operating and improving the CPI Portal Site, fostering a positive user experience, and delivering the products and services available from CPI or its affiliated companies.
CPI uses the information for:
CPI will offer individuals the opportunity to choose (opt out) whether their Personal Information is (1) to be disclosed to a third party or (2) to be used for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual.
Prior to disclosing Personal Information to a third party, CPI will notify the individual of such disclosure and allow the individual the choice (opt out) of such disclosure.
To enable us to more efficiently provide the services you have requested from us, CPI may share aggregated anonymous information about visitors to the CPI Portal Site (for example, the number of visitors to the CPI Portal Site) with its clients, agents and other third parties so that they may understand the kinds of visitors to the CPI Portal Site and how those visitors use the site.
We may disclose your personal information to other CPI companies, agents, contractors and individuals we employ to perform functions on our behalf. Only the information necessary to perform a specified business function will be disclosed (e.g. to provide career assistance, host our web servers, or provide 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 and are subject to strict terms of confidentiality.
In other circumstances we may be required or authorized by law to disclose the information you provide. Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information if legally required to do so, if requested to do so by a governmental entity 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 CPI or its affiliated companies; (c) prevent a crime or protect national security; or (d) protect the personal safety of users or the public.
CPI will take reasonable steps to protect your information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration or destruction.
Areas of this website that collect your information use industry standard secure socket layer encryption (SSL); however, to take advantage of this your browser must support encryption protection (found in Internet Explorer release 3.0 and above).
Your profile has a password so that only you can access it. We recommend that you do not provide your password to anyone, as you are ultimately responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your account information. If you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public location, remember to sign out and close your browser window when you have finished to ensure that others cannot access your personal information.
CPI will only process Personal Information in a way that is compatible with and relevant for the purpose for which it was collected or authorized by the individual. To the extent necessary for those purposes, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Information is accurate, complete, current and reliable for its intended use.
CPI will allow an individual access to their Personal Information to correct, amend or delete inaccurate information, except where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the privacy of the individual in the case in question or where the rights of persons other than the individual would be violated.
If you have any questions about the collection, use or disclosure of your personal information by CPI or our agents, you may contact our Privacy Officer. Except in limited circumstances, as specifically provided by applicable privacy legislation, we will tell you whether we hold personal information about you, the source of the information and allow you access to your personal information. We will provide an account of the use that has been made or is being made of the information and the third parties to which it has been disclosed upon request.
CPI will only refuse access to information about you in those circumstances permitted or required by applicable privacy legislation. If access is denied, CPI will provide you with the reasons for the refusal.
If a complaint or dispute cannot be resolved through our internal process, we agree to dispute resolution using an independent resource mechanism as a third party resolution provider.
E-Mail Messages / Feedback
When you send us messages via e-mail, we will use your name and e-mail address only to respond to the concerns you write to us with. Your e-mail may be shared with appropriate people within the CPI organization to help us respond to your concerns and improve the services we provide.
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 (such as success stories) for marketing purposes, without attribution, or contact you for further information and release.
Public vs. Private
Once you have created a resume, you will have the option of choosing a Public or Private setting. The Private setting will prevent anyone other than you from viewing your online resume. The Public setting makes your online resume viewable by selected hiring employers. At any time, you may reset the Public setting to “Private.”
Please remember that any personal information that is disclosed in public areas of the CPI Career Portal Site becomes public information. We recommend that you exercise caution when deciding to disclose any personally identifying information, as it could be collected and used by others over whom CPI has no control. We are not responsible for the use made by third parties of information you post or otherwise make available in public areas of the CPI Career Portal site.
