Privacy Statement

Introduction
YER is committed to safeguarding the privacy of visitors to our website and users of the other services available through our site. We believe one of the most unique and valuable aspects of YER's services is our ability to provide a secure environment where our users can efficiently exchange information and transact business without fear of non permitted disclosure or use of their proprietary information. We will use our best efforts to ensure that the information you provide us remains private and is used only for the purposes set forth herein.

This privacy policy details our commitment to protect your information and the limited manner in which we will use that information to provide and improve our provision of services.

The Information We Collect and How We Use It
Your personal details, including your name, email address and resume, are held and used by us for the following purposes:
1. for matching your coded details with job vacancies, to assist us in finding you the position that most suits you;
2. for keeping you informed of YER's services, news and wider developments in your chosen field;
3. for tailoring the version of our website you see when you log on to make it relevant to you; and/or
4. for compiling salary and other surveys of our candidates.

Disclosures of your information
We will share your information within the YER International group of companies where necessary in order to provide you with our recruitment services.
It is possible that YER could merge or be acquired by another business. If this happens, we may share the information that relates to you with the new owners of the business and their advisers. You will be sent notice of such an event.

Your resume and related information will be sent to prospective employers but only where you give your consent. Such employers may be located both inside and outside the USA.

We may also release information relating to you to regulatory or law enforcement authorities, if required to do so. We also reserve the right to disclose the information we have collected about you to our professional advisors and to other persons to the extent that YER International contracts out any aspect of the operation of its recruitment agency services. These third parties will be acting under similar undertakings of confidentiality as YER.

Vacancy Alerts
To subscribe to vacancy alerts emails, you will be required to provide your email address, which will be used for the purpose of keeping you informed, by email, of the latest jobs in your nominated industry and/or industry news via vacancy alerts.
Should you decide that you no longer wish to receive this information, unsubscribe links are provided in every vacancy alert email that you receive.

Resume
We give you the option of submitting your resume via this website. You can do this either to apply for a specific advertised job or for consideration by our recruitment consultants for positions as they come up. Although your resume will be stored online, it will only be accessible by YER recruitment consultants, working both inside and outside the USA. Your resume will also be emailed directly to our recruitment consultants who review your details and enter them onto our central in-house database. This database, including the information relating to you, can be accessed by any of our recruitment consultants working in other offices of YER International, both inside and outside the USA.
You can update your resume at any time. Your old resume will automatically be replaced.

Aggregate Information about YER International online visitors
We gather information and statistics collectively about all visitors to this website and all of the YER websites worldwide, for example, which area users' access most frequently and which services users' access the most. We only use such data in the aggregate form. This information helps us determine what is most beneficial for our users and how we can continually improve our online services to create a better overall experience for our users. We also publish some of this information on the YER websites worldwide.

Other websites
Please note that clicking on to links and banner advertisements may result in your transferral to another website, where data privacy practices may be different to that of YER. Visitors should consult the other websites' privacy policies as we are not responsible for, and have no control over, information that is submitted to or collected by these third parties.

Internet-based transfers
Given that the Internet is a global environment, using the Internet to collect and process personal data necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. Therefore, by browsing this web site and communicating electronically with us, you acknowledge and agree to our processing of personal data in this way.

Security
YER has implemented technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information, including firewalls, secured servers and database security, from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. We continually update our network to protect the confidentiality of our data. Due to constantly changing environments; however, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes.

Changes to our Privacy Policy
This privacy policy may be changed by YER at any time. If we change our privacy policy in the future, we will set out those changes here, so that you will always know what personal information we gather, the purposes we might use it for and to whom we might disclose it. If, at any time, you have questions or concerns about YER's online privacy commitment, please feel free to e-mail us at webmaster@yer.com or call your local office to speak to one of our representatives.
