Any Information supplied by a Consultant to a Hiring Company through OpHaus’ Website is treated as described in the section below entitled Choice and Access to Data Controlled by Hiring Companies.
Through our Services, OpHaus discloses project opportunities to Consultants whose user profile accomplishments and preferences match the Hiring Company’s project requirements. A Consultant will receive notification from OpHaus about a specific project if the Hiring Company is interested in interviewing the Consultant. In each case, the Consultant will be notified of the Hiring Company’s interest and the Consultant will then have the option to make the appropriate selections through our Services in order to establish a connection with the Hiring Company. Even if the Consultant wishes to connect with the Hiring Company, he or she may choose not to disclose certain information. This is accomplished by the Consultant setting his or her user profile to “anonymous”. As an anonymous Consultant, Hiring Companies can see the Consultant’s accomplishments but cannot view identifiable information such as the Consultant’s name, location, current and past employers, and resume. In addition, other Hiring Companies will not have access to the Consultant’s identifiable information unless he or she is matched to a Hiring Company’s specific project opportunity and the Consultant chooses to disclose his or her identifiable information through the process described above. Please note that once a Consultant provides his or her Information to a Hiring Company, the Hiring Company’s own privacy policies governs its use of the Information.
The security of your Information is important to us. OpHaus employs procedural and technological measures to protect your Information. These measures are reasonably designed to help protect your Information from loss, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. OpHaus may use software, secure socket layer technology (SSL) encryption, password protection, firewalls, internal restrictions and other security measures to help prevent unauthorized access to your Information. When you enter sensitive information (such as your login information), we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). However, OpHaus cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat these measures or use your Information for improper purposes. Therefore, you should be aware that when you voluntarily display or distribute personally identifiable information, that information could be collected and used by others. OpHaus is not responsible for the unauthorized use by third parties of information you post or otherwise make available publicly.
