We collect information from you in several ways, including when you choose to share information with us by entering it through our Site and by using automated processes.

We may ask you and you may choose to provide certain personal information to us, such as your first and last name, birthdate, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, ethnicity, work history, educational history, resume, links to your social media accounts, username, and health status. We may collect this information in various places, including account registration forms, job application forms, “contact us” forms, or in other parts of our Site. You may also choose to provide us with personal information of a third-party through our referrals forms, such as their first and last name, e-mail address, phone number, work history, educational history, resume and relationship to you. Please note that by submitting any information about a third-party, you represent and warrant that you have been expressly granted authority to provide such information to us.
