combined personal, demographic, behavioral or indirect information, as set forth

that may be of interest to you on the Web Site when you apply for those jobs.

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

with any other third party or use that data for any other purpose. We will remain

to receive information about the opportunities, products or services of third parties,
we supply 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. For example,
if you indicate that you would like to receive information about the opportunities,
products or services of third parties at the time you register for a CareernU account,
we 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.

CareernU’s clients, partners, other Site visitors, and other third parties so that
they can understand the kinds of visitors to the Sites and how those visitors use
the Sites in order to serve advertisements to you on our Sites or other sites with
which we have a business relationship. 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
to companies and individuals we employ to perform functions on our behalf. Examples
include hosting our web servers, data, providing marketing assistance, processing
credit card payments, and providing customer service. These companies and individuals
will have access to your personal information as may necessary to perform their
functions, but they may not share that information with any other third party.
We supply technology, hosting, hiring management and related services to other leading
companies to power recruitment areas on their Web sites (sometimes referred to as
“Hosted Career Sites”). Personal and/or demographic information supplied by you
in Hosted Career Sites becomes part of the CareernU database, but it is not accessible
by anyone other than you, CareernU, and the company concerned without your consent.
If you attempt to register with CareernU after registering with a Hosted Career
Site, CareernU will recognize your information and you will be able to use the information

If you apply for a position through a Hosted Career Site or a co-branded site, you
may be asked to provide information on your age, gender or race where permitted
by law. You should understand that, if provided, this information should only be
used by employers in accordance with applicable law. However, CareernU is not responsible
for the actions of such employers. All such information provided will be kept separate
by CareernU from your expression of interest in any job opportunity. Providing this

for a government identity number where permitted by applicable law. Some employers
are required by law to gather this information from job applicants for reporting
and record-keeping requirements. You should understand that if provided, this information
may only be used by employers only in accordance with applicable law and they should
not use it in making any negative employment decisions. All information provided
will be kept separate from your expression of interest in any job opportunity. Providing
this information is subject to local law.
- 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. We may disclose and transfer
such information to a third party who acquires any or all of Sreo Nexus Pvt. Ltd.'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 Sreo Nexus
Pvt. Ltd. becomes the subject of an insolvency proceeding, whether voluntary or
involuntary, Sreo Nexus Pvt. Ltd. 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.
An Important Note about Your Resume
We give you the option of putting your resume in our database.
When you create or post a resume to the Sites, that resume is stored in our searchable
resume database in India. You may control the status of your resume by setting it
to private or public.
You can store your resume in our database, but not allow it to be searchable by
potential employers or recruiters. 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.
If you set your resume as private, it is not searchable by potential employers or
other with access to our resume database. You may still use your resume to apply
online to a job. If you do 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 set your resume as public, but want your contact information to be confidential,
your resume will be searchable by potential employers, but we will hide your contact
information and current company. You must also remove your contact information from
your uploaded or copy and paste text resume. You should be aware that if you have
a rare skill or job title, for example, it may still be possible for you to be identified
even without your contact details being included. If you are worried about being
identified, you should not include specific details by which you could be identified.
If you use a confidential resume to apply to a job online, the employer to whom
you send your resume will be able to view your contact information in order to contact
you about your application.
If you allow your resume to be searchable without making it confidential, then all
parties with access to our searchable resume database (or copies thereof) will have
access to your resume. Employers or other parties with access to our searchable
resume database may be located in countries whose data protection legislation may
not be equivalent to the laws in your country. For example, your resume may be viewed
and accessed by employers outside the European Economic Area who have access to
our searchable database. By making your resume searchable, you are expressly consenting
to such transfers of data.
We attempt to limit access to our searchable resume database to legitimate users
such as paying 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 cannot control
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 searchable database
at any time; details of how to do this are given below. However, employers, recruiters
and others who have paid for access to 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 will take reasonable steps to ensure that parties
other than those mentioned above will not, without our consent, gain access to this
database. However CareernU is not responsible for the retention, use, or privacy
of resumes by any third parties. We cannot control the retention, use or privacy
of resumes or profiles that have been downloaded by third parties. Accordingly,
you should not put sensitive information, personality profiles, or other information
you would not want made public, in your resume.
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.
If you use our facilities to build a resume or to post a resume in our database,
then you will be providing us with personal data we will use in accordance with
this Statement. Your resume must not contain sensitive data relating to your (i)
racial or ethnic origin (ii) political beliefs (iii) philosophical or religious
beliefs (iv) membership of a trade union or political party (v) physical or mental
health or genetic makeup (vi) addictions, sexual life (vii) the commission of criminal
offences or proceedings and associated penalties or fines, or (viii) any Social
Security Number or national identification number, if you set your resume as private
unless you have previously sent to us your written consent that we may process your
sensitive personal data, if CareernU determines this to be a requirement of applicable
law. If your resume does contain such data and you set your resume as public, then
you agree that we may retain this information and use it in accordance with this
Statement. We cannot control third parties’ access to such information from our
Posting Your Information to Public Areas of CareernU
Please remember that if you post any of your personal information in public areas
of CareernU, such as in online forums, public profiles, chat rooms, or in the searchable
resume database, such information may be collected and used by others over whom
CareernU has no control. We cannot control the use made by third parties of information

statistical information that may relate to you but do not identify you personally.
If your personal information was previously accessed by others using our Sites,
we are not able to delete the information or copies thereof from their systems.

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

correct pricing information when you access our site. The “persistent” cookies we
use will remain on your computer after you have left our site and will expire when
you log out of the Site or 60 days after your last visit for security cookies, 90
days after your last visit for poll response and alliance cookies, or two years
after your last visit for advertisement and information notice cookies. We also
allow persistent third party cookies as part of online advertising campaigns to
determine and track site traffic landing from CareernU’s advertising banners that
have been placed on the websites of third parties. The data collected via these
cookies is anonymous and the information is not linked to your personally identifiable
information without your permission. The “persistent” cookies placed by our third
party ad servers will remain on your computer after you have left our site for up
to 20 years unless you choose to delete them.
We use persistent cookies and related technologies (such as web beacons described
below) to determine and track direct and indirect candidate application traffic
in response to Job Postings either on CareernU or on the websites of third parties
through CareernU’s Career-Ad-Network (described below). We also use “persistent”
cookies in connection with our Career Ad Network (“CAN”). The CAN cookie is used
to display relevant job ads to you on CareernU and when you visit other web sites.
The information collected by the CAN cookie is treated in accordance with the policies
and practices described in our Privacy Statement above. The “persistent” cookie
we use in CAN will remain on your computer after you have left our site and will
expire six months after it was set.
CareernU enforces your opt-out of CAN by setting a “blocking cookie”. In order for
the blocking cookie to work on your computer, your browser must be set to accept
third party cookies. The blocking cookie for CAN will last for five years; however,
if you delete your browser cookies, your opt-out cookie, as well as any updates
you may have made, will also be deleted. In addition, your opt-out only applies
in the browser you are using at the time you opt-out and only on the computer you
are using at such time. If you buy a new computer, change web browsers or delete
this cookie, you will need to perform the opt-out task again. Opting-out of the
CAN cookie does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising from CAN.
It does mean that the ads delivered to you by CAN will no longer be tailored to
your Web browsing patterns. Once you opt-out CAN no longer maintains a targeting
cookie on your computer, so the ads will be general in nature and could be repetitive.
We also allow other companies to display advertisements to you while you are visiting
our Sites. Because your web browser must request these advertisements from the other
company servers, these companies can view, edit or set their own cookies, just as
if you had requested a web page from their site. CareernU has no control over, and
is not responsible for, the practices of those third party advertisers. CareernU
encourages you to review the policies of such advertisers. Third parties, such as
Google, Double Click, Right media and other advertiser platforms, may also use information
that they gather from your activity on our Web Site to select which CareernU advertisement
should be displayed to you on web sites other than our Web Site.
You can opt-out of customized advertising by third parties by setting your browser
to decline third party cookies or some browsers allow you to block cookies from
a particular third party whose customized advertising you do not wish to receive.
You can also delete the advertiser’s cookie each time after it has been served.
In addition, third party advertisers, including advertising networks, may offer
an opt-out of their customized advertising. If you visit an advertiser’s own web
site, you will be able to see their policies. If you wish, you may opt out of Google's
use of customized advertising by visiting the Google advertising opt-out page, you
can opt out of DoubleClick’s use of customized advertising by visiting theDoubleClick
opt-out page, and you can opt out of Right Media’s use of customized advertising
by visiting Right Media opt out page.
You will find additional information about the following third party ad servers
at www.doubleclick.com; www.atlassolutions.com/privacy; andwww.omniture.com/en/privacy.
Otherwise, if you do not wish to allow your session visitation information on our
Sites to be aggregated and analyzed by Omniture, or used by Omniture to tailor dynamic
content to your specific interests, you may utilize the following opt out mechanismwww.omniture.com/en/privacy/policy#optout.
In addition, many of these third parties are members of the Network Advertising
Initiative, which requires its members to provide a permanent opt-out from their
customized ads. You can opt-out of customized advertising by all NAI members by
visiting the NAI site. However, since opting out is enforced by serving a blocking
cookie, if you later delete all cookies, you will also delete your blocking cookie
and will need to set it again. In addition, advertiser opt-out cookies may expire
after a set period of time and will need to be re-set following their expiration.
If you opt-out of customized advertising by third parties, you will still see ads
on our Web Site and CareernU ads elsewhere on web sites other than our Web Site,
however, such ads will be not be customized to your interests and may be less relevant
Please note that if you opt-out of cookies by changing your browser settings, your
opt-out will be saved but it may not be carried with you if you choose to use another
