When a Job Seeker closes an account, the Job Seeker will no longer have access to any of the data which we provided under that account name, including but not limited to, search history, job search preferences, saved jobs, jobs the Job Seeker has applied to, job alerts, resume, and any other data associated with the account.

WorkVenture reserves the right to keep any materials in a closed account as necessary to preserve and protect its rights as allowed by law (for example, to preserve records of a dispute) or to comply with its obligations under local law (for example, to keep an email address). A closed account does not mean that all of the data is expunged from the WorkVenture systems, although it will not be readily available under the Job Seeker’s original account name. When the Job Seeker request to close an account by sending an email to [email protected], WorkVenture will begin to process that instruction within 24 hours and will have completed the operation within 30 days.
Employers may disable an account, however WorkVenture must preserve business records pertaining to that account to comply with its obligations under law. If a Job Seeker wants to delete a job application performed on WorkVenture’s site, they will need to contact the prospective Employer directly to request deletion of their application. When a Job Seeker creates a resume on WorkVenture, they are given the option to make their resume public or private. Public resumes are available to employers with access to WorkVenture’s resume search application.
Private resumes are only made available to those whom the Job Seeker has initiated an application or provided their resume. For Public resumes, you authorize and consent to WorkVenture removing your name from your Public resume, in certain instances. For job applications which you, the Job Seeker submit through WorkVenture (including the use of an WorkVenture Apply button) to an employer, (with related materials submitted), please note: 1) that your applications and materials may be controlled by an employer, 2) we may direct you to that employer for personal data deletion requests, and 3) WorkVenture depends on the Employer or the Employer’s agent to provide WorkVenture with the correct destination for all applications. In the event that the electronic destination provided to WorkVenture is incorrect, your application materials will not be sent to the intended recipient of the application. WorkVenture has no liability for such applications. If you do not wish to send your application materials in this manner, you should send them directly to the employer.
4. Uses and Disclosures of Information
For example, WorkVenture uses your previous search and browsing history (e.g. the jobs you click on), or application materials and answers to screener questions, to determine relevant search results and provide you with recommended jobs or reach out to you about jobs you may be interested in.
For example, you search for jobs, and WorkVenture knows and stores the titles of jobs you search for and click on, where those jobs are located, any information, including salary interest or experience of which you have informed WorkVenture, or the general salary range or experience level of the jobs you view (if indicated on the Job Listings), the Job Listings you apply to, your amount of activity or time of most recent activity on WorkVenture, or any of your other behavior on the WorkVenture site, when you use WorkVenture. You know exactly what this data is because you are the person who undertook the activity and the data pertains only to your activity. If you have an WorkVenture account or an WorkVenture-hosted resume, you agree that WorkVenture may use this observed factual data to suggest jobs to you and to suggest you or your public resume to Employers that might be interested in a person who matches your behavior on WorkVenture. You also agree that WorkVenture may contact you based on this observed behavior.
WorkVenture may also share such information with third parties (including operators of third-party websites and/or social networking sites) in order to show you targeted advertisements and other content that has been customized for you.
We may use a variety of methods to detect and address anomalous activity and screen content to prevent abuse such as spam. However, such detection methods are not perfect and false positives may occur. These efforts may on occasion result in a temporary or permanent suspension or termination of some functions for some users. WorkVenture provides two-way message proxy and relay services to the users of our WorkVenture products, including: WorkVenture Resume, WorkVenture Apply, and Post a Job. By utilizing this WorkVenture relay function in connection with any of the aforementioned products, you acknowledge that you are asking WorkVenture to send these messages on your behalf. We monitor, review, store and analyze your content (including your resumes, cover letters, applications, messages, questionnaire answers, responses, offer letters and other materials) that you send, store or receive, including via automated means and otherwise, for data analysis, quality control, and to refine the Site or any other WorkVenture product or service (including to provide better search results and other listings for job seekers and employers, provide you with personally relevant product features, and to prevent and block fraud and spam or reduce unwanted mail).

You retain no ownership rights in these email addresses, which are specific to Employers’ Job Listings, but owned by WorkVenture. WorkVenture’s relay system will show the name associated with your account or job application in the “To:” or “From:” field. Please note that since these message proxy and relay services depend on the functionality of third party providers, there may be technical delays on the part of those email service providers. If you share the WorkVenture-owned email address with someone other than yourself, and they send an email to this email address, WorkVenture reserves the right to verify and confirm the identity of the sender of that email with the Employer associated with that email address’ Job Listing.
WorkVenture reserves the right to drop messages from our relay system that WorkVenture determines do not adhere to Site Rules or any of the terms of this agreement. WorkVenture further reserves the right to conduct investigations to determine whether you are perpetrating a scam, spamming WorkVenture or its users, or otherwise conducting fraudulent activity on WorkVenture by various means, including but not limited to investigating your functionality by setting up profiles and names that belong to WorkVenture. WorkVenture reserves the right to turn over any information gathered via such investigations to the police or other third party if WorkVenture has a good faith belief that you are using the Site in violation of these terms.
