THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
A. Aggregate Information. You can always browse the Public Site and search for posted positions without providing any personally identifiable information to vetmedcareers.com. We gather general information about the number of users browsing the website, the number of users who view certain posted positions, and how users navigate through our Web Site. This information is collected only in the aggregate. We use this information to provide aggregated statistical feedback to the institutions posting positions on our website, to publicize our website and to further develop our website to maximize the benefits realized by our users.
C. Resume Center. If you register for a personal VetMed Careers account, you will have the option of posting a form of your resume on the Restricted Site. We request certain personally identifiable information in order for you to post your resume, such as your name and address, e-mail address and any experience working in the veterinary practice. We include this information, when and only if you so elect, in a database for institutional and other paying subscribers to search for potential candidates online. In addition, you have the ability to draft a personal resume and cover letter in the resume textbox. There are two primary ways you can use the Resume Center:
- You can create and store your resume on our database, but not allow it to be searched by any persons of veterinary or non-veterinary subscribers. Not allowing your resume to be searchable means that you can use it to apply for a position online, but it will not be searchable through our Resume Database.
- You can store your resume in our database and allow it to be searched by universities and employers that subscribe for access to our resume database. You may elect to have your personal contact information disclosed to universities and employers searching our database, or not have any personal contact information disclosed. You may remove your resume from our searchable database at any time. However, university and other subscribers who have paid for access to the database may have retained a copy of your resume in their own files or databases. We are not responsible for the retention, use, or privacy of resumes, nor any information disclosed on your resume or cover letter posted on our website. Please note that once you create a resume online and permit it to be searched, all information contained in your resume and cover letter can be collected and used by our paying subscribers. This may result in unsolicited messages from third parties, for which VetMed Careers, LLC is not responsible.
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. We do not link this automatically-collected data to other information we collect about you.
We partner with a third party to either display advertising on our website or to manage our advertising on other sites. Our third party partner may use technologies such as cookies to gather information about your activities on this website and other sites in order to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests. If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you interest-based ads, you may opt-out by clicking here. Please note this does not opt you out of being served ads. You will continue to receive generic ads.
E. Job Postings. Persons, whether as individuals or as employees of a business who use the Employer Section or the Single Posting Pages of the website may be asked for their business email addresses, business address and phone, billing information, and a password. Although there is no cost to Job Seekers for using the services on the website, Job Posters will be charged a fee for requested services. We use data collected from Job Posters to provide requested services.
F. Payments By Credit Card. We use an outside bank merchant account to verify credit card data so we can bill and account for products sold to Job Posters. This company does not retain, share, store or use credit card data for any other purposes.
G. Third Party Advertisers. The ads appearing on this website are delivered to users by third-party ad servers. We share website usage information about users with reputable third parties for the purpose of targeting our Internet banner advertisements on this site.
H. Blogs. Our website offers publicly accessible blogs or community forums. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them. To request removal of your personally identifiable information from our blog or community forum, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personally identifiable information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.

We do not specifically collect information about children, nor do we authorize the use of this website by children.
If, however, we are going to use users’ personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify users via email prior to the change becoming effective. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. However, if users have opted out of all communication with the site, or deleted/deactivated their account, then they will not be contacted, nor will their personally identifiable information be used in this new manner. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our website notifying users of the change. In some cases where we post a notice, we will also email users, who have opted to receive communications from us, notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices.
