Some of our products and services, such as our resume and profile database enable third parties to see your personal information and to contact you. Information you post in public areas of our job platform or applications or make visible in the resume and profile database may be accessed, used, and stored by others around the world, including those in countries that might not have legislation that guarantees adequate protection of personal information as defined by your country of residence. While we take measures to safeguard your information from unauthorized access or inappropriate use, the USPTA does not control these third parties and we are not responsible for their use of information you give to us.

Public resumes may be available to anyone with access to the resume search application and may be accessed by other users, in order to increase the visibility of that resume and help find you a job. A public resume may also be available to anyone accessing the associated URL, and to Employers. Where this occurs, you make your resume, your name and other Personal Data that you place on your resume available to third parties. Those third parties may be interested in you as an employee, and may forward your resume to other third parties.
If you post a public resume, this may be crawled by, and displayed through search engines when someone searches for your name. This means that third parties can view the Personal Data contained in your resume and you may receive unsolicited contact from parties unaffiliated with the USPTA and for whom the USPTA has no responsibility. If you post a public resume our platform, please note that although any resume you post publicly is public information and the content may be copied by a third party in violation of these terms.
6.1 Changing Your Resume Privacy Settings
When you place your resume on our job platform, it will be set to public by default. You may adjust this at any point by editing your privacy settings. Where you adjust your resume from public to hidden, USPTA does not warrant how often third-party search engines will update their caches, which may continue to contain your resume information. Additionally, Employers who have saved your resume while it was public may continue to have access to your resume even after you have adjusted it to private.
If your resume includes personal data 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. Resumes you give to us 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 biometric details or genetic makeup (vi) addictions or sexual life (vii) the commission of criminal offences or proceedings and associated penalties or fines, (viii) the commission of any unlawful or objectionable conduct and associated penalties, or (ix) any Social Security Number or national identification number. If you do give us this information, then you agree that it is at your own risk.
Access to your Personal Data: You may access, update, or delete your resume or profile at any time. To do so, sign in to your account, go to your resume or profile, and make the desired changes. If you do not have an account, or if you believe that someone else has provided us with your contact information, please contact us. You also have the rights to data portability and to request that the USPTA restrict processing data about you.
The UPSTA does not "sell" your personal information as that term is defined by the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018. You have the right to request that the USPTA delete any of your personal information that it has collected from you, with certain exceptions. We may refuse your deletion request if permitted by law. If we deny your deletion request, we will tell you why the request was denied. Additionally, if we determine that no exception to deletion applies, we will direct any of our service providers that have received your personal data to delete your personal information from their records as well. To make a request, please contact us here
We will respond to information access requests within a reasonable timeframe.
