From time to time we may provide you with the opportunity to submit behavioral, descriptive, cultural, preferential, and/or lifestyle information about yourself, but it is solely up to you whether you choose to furnish such information. If you do provide such information, you thereby give your consent to the use of that information in accordance with the policies and practices described in this Privacy Statement.

4. Disclosure of Personal Information to Third Parties.
a. We disclose information if requested to do so by a governmental entity, if legally required to do so, or if we believe in good faith that such action is necessary to: (a) protect our rights or property or our affiliated companies; (b) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process; (c) protect the personal safety of users or the public; or (d) prevent a crime or protect national security.
b. We disclose information to third parties if you consent to such disclosure. For example, if at the time you register for a Myeco.ORG account you state that you would like to receive information about products, opportunities, or services of third parties, we may supply your contact information to third parties including but not limited to data aggregators, employers, recruiters, marketers, and/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 want to receive information about the products, opportunities, or services of a particular third party.
c. We will transfer and/or disclose your information to a third party who acquires all or a substantial portion of our business, whether such acquisition is by way of consolidation, merger, or purchase of all or a substantial portion of our assets. In the event we become the subject of a bankruptcy proceeding, whether voluntary or involuntary, either we or our trustees in bankruptcy may license, sell, or otherwise dispose of such information in a transaction approved by the bankruptcy court. You will be notified of any sale of all or a substantial portion of our business to a third party via e-mail or through a public notice posted on the eco.ORG sites.
d. We may from time to time disclose information to companies and individuals we contract to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include, but are not limited to, analyzing data, processing credit card payments, hosting our web servers, providing marketing assistance, and/or providing customer service. These individuals and companies will have access to your personal information as necessary to perform their designated functions, but they may not share that information with any other third party.
e. If you have a eco.ORG Community profile, other users or members of eco.ORG Community may access your profile, however, they will not have access to your contact information and your contact information is not displayed in any eco.ORG Community profile.
5. Other Uses of Information.
We may provide hosting, technology, and related services to other companies to power recruitment areas on their Web sites (sometimes referred to as "Hosted Career Sites"). Demographic and/or personal information supplied by you on Hosted Career Sites becomes part of the eco.ORG database, but it is not accessible without your consent by anyone other than eco.ORG, you, and the company concerned. If you register with eco.ORG after registering with a Hosted Career Site, eco.ORG will recognize your user information and will transfer into your Myeco.ORG account registration the information you provided to the Hosted Career Site.
If you apply for a job position on eco.ORG or through a Hosted Career Site, where permitted by applicable law you may be asked to provide information on your race, gender, or other protected status. For reporting and record-keeping requirements, some employers are required by law to gather this information from job applicants. If provided, this information will be used by employers only in accordance with applicable law and will not be used in making negative employment decisions. All race, gender, or other protected status information will be kept separate from your expression of interest in any job opportunity. Providing this information is strictly voluntary, and if you choose not to provide this information you will not be subject to any adverse treatment or action.
Information gathered on a page in a Hosted Career Site or on a co-branded page (including but not limited to contests co-sponsored by eco.ORG and another company) may become the property either of the other company, or of both us and the other company. In such case we are not responsible for that company's use of your personal or demographic information, and the use of such information by the other company will be subject to the privacy statement of that company.
6. Personal Information on Profiles and Resumes.
a. If you allow your resume to be searchable without hiding your contact information and making it confidential, then all parties with access to our searchable resume database (or copies thereof) will have access to your resume.
b. You can store your resume in our database without allowing it to be searchable by potential employers. Not allowing your resume to be searchable means that employers and recruiters will not have access to search it through our resume database product, but you can use it to apply for a job online.
c. If you apply to a job posting on eco.ORG and have a confidential resume, the employer to whom you send your resume will be able to access your contact information.
In addition, portions of your searchable resume, but not your contact information, may be accessible to the public in your eco.ORG Community profile.
We strive to limit access to our searchable resume database (or copies thereof) only to paying hiring managers, headhunters, employers, recruiters, and human resource professionals, as well as law enforcement and national security agencies as required by law, but cannot guarantee that third parties will not gain access to this database. We are not responsible for the use made of our clients' resumes by third parties who access resumes while they are in our searchable database. The portions of your searchable resume (not your contact information) that are publicly available in your eco.ORG Community profile are accessible to anyone who uses the eco.ORG Community service. You may at any time remove your resume from eco.ORG or delete your profile from eco.ORG Community, but recruiters, employers, and others who have paid (a) for access to the eco.ORG resume database, or (b) to obtain a copy of that database, or (c) for access to the eco.ORG Community services, as well as parties who have otherwise gained access, may have retained a copy of your eco.ORG Community profile or resume in their own databases or files. We are not responsible for the retention, use, or privacy of profiles or resumes in such cases.

When you return to eco.ORG, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the features that you customized.

Alternatively, you may be able to modify your browser setting to notify you each time a cookie is delivered and permit you to accept or decline cookies on an individual basis.
