What personal information is collected from you
TherapyJobBoard.com collects personal information from several different parts of our website. Some information is gathered when you register (registration for job seekers is optional). For instance, we ask for your name and email address. The system will also request your street address, city, state, zip code and telephone number, although only fields marked with an asterisk (*) on the registration form are required. This information is used to assist you in navigating our website by automatically filling in certain forms with your information so that you are not required to repeatedly re-enter it, thereby facilitating your job search or (for employers) your recruiting efforts. After you register, you will have a username and password and will be able to take full advantage of the various job search or job posting features available on our website.
We may also request personal information at other times, including but not limited to when you post your cover letter and/or resume on our website, submit job listings or take advantage of other features available on our site. (For more information on posting cover letters and resumes, as well as our resume database, please review our Terms and Conditions of Use). If you contact us via email, we may also elect to maintain a record of such correspondence.
If you chose to use our referral service to inform a friend about a job posted on our website, we will ask for your friend's name and email address. Once you submit this information, we will automatically send your friend an email informing him or her of the position. TherapyJobBoard.com uses this information solely for the purpose of sending this email to your friend.
TherapyJobBoard.com also requests certain credit card information from employers who wish to post jobs on our website. For instance, you will be asked to provide your credit card number and expiration date. This information is used for billing purposes only. If we experience difficulty processing your order, we may use your contact information to contact you.
TherapyJobBoard.com is the sole owner of the information collected on this website. We will not sell, share or rent this information to third parties in any way other than stated herein without your permission.
What are cookies and how are they used
As part of offering and providing customizable and personalized services, TherapyJobBoard.com may use session cookies to store and sometimes track information about you. A session cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. Information collected through cookies is not tied to your personally identifiable information. Several features on our website require that you accept cookies in order for these features to work properly.
Generally, we use session cookies for the following purposes:
(1) To identify and label all "new" jobs entered into our job database since your last visit to our website;
(2) To permanently save your password on your computer so you are not required to re-enter it every time you visit our website; and
(3) To allow you to save job postings in your inbox for future viewing.
TherapyJobBoard.com may also collect IP addresses for system administration and to make changes to our website. IP addresses are not tied to your personally identifiable information. Under no circumstances will IP addresses be shared with non-related third parties.
Who is collecting your information
When you are asked for personal information on our website, you are sharing that information solely with TherapyJobBoard.com, unless specifically stated otherwise. However, some activities will, by their very nature, result in your personal information being shared with other users of our website and/or services. For instance, if you apply online for jobs posted on our website, your cover letter and resume, and any personal information contained therein, will be transmitted to the employer who posted the job. Similarly, if you elect to enter your resume into our resume database, your resume will be accessible to potential employers (and possibly your current employer) and any other individuals or entities who pay to access our resume database. If you do not wish to share your personal information with individuals or entities that pay to access our resume database, you may elect not to submit your resume to the resume database or you may submit a "private" resume that will not include your name and contact information.
If you are an employer and enter personal information on the registration (for instance, your name, company name, business address, and telephone number), this information typically will be included in your job posting, unless you elect on the registration form to shield this information from public view.
How is your information used
The primary objective of TherapyJobBoard.com in collecting your personal information is to provide you, the job seeker or employer, with a customized experience and to assist your navigation throughout our website. We also offer you the opportunity to create or cut and paste a cover letter and resume on our site in order to facilitate your job search efforts and, in the case of employers, to reduce the amount of time and money you expend on the recruiting process.
TherapyJobBoard.com also uses personal information collected from our site to send certain emails to job seekers and employers. After registering on our website, job seekers and employers will receive an email welcoming them to TherapyJobBoard.com. Job seekers who submit their cover letter and resume to employers through our website will also receive emails confirming their transmission of these materials to prospective employers. Job seekers may also receive emails from employers in response to private or public resumes posted in our resume database. Similarly, job seekers who create automatic job search agents will receive emails notifying them of jobs matching their pre-selected criteria. If job seekers send a job posting to a friend through our website, the friend will receive an email listing the available position.
Employers will also receive several different types of emails from TherapyJobBoard.com. In addition to receiving an email welcoming them to our website, employers will receive emails from us whenever a job seeker applies for one of their jobs posted on our website and (if the employer has created a resume search agent and paid to access our resume database) whenever a resume matching their pre-selected criteria is added to our resume database. Employers will also receive emails confirming the posting of jobs on our website and the expiration of job postings on our website. TherapyJobBoard.com may also elect to send invoices and other billing statements to employers via email.
Job seeker and employers who register to use our website may not `opt-out' of any of the emails discussed above.

The kind of security precautions used to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information
Other than certain members of the TherapyJobBoard.com team, you are the only person with access to the personal information you have entered into our registration form and (for employers) our payment-processing screen. Your username is password-protected to prevent unauthorized access to these areas of our website. Your password cannot be obtained by anyone other than you or someone who knows both your username and the email address that you used to register with us.
We recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone. TherapyJobBoard.com will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited telephone call or email. You should also log off of our website after you have completed using our service. This is to ensure that unauthorized individuals cannot access your personal information, correspondence or resume if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place, such as a library or internet café.
When our registration or payment screens ask you to enter sensitive information (such as your credit card number and expiration date), such information is encrypted and protected by our SSL encryption system.
Unfortunately, while we have taken the above precautions, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, TherapyJobBoard.com cannot completely ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us (or to prospective employers) through our various online services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our computer systems and servers.
What else you should know about online privacy
Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online (for instance, in resumes or jobs that you post on our website), this information theoretically can be intercepted and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, such information may be seen and used by others and you may receive unsolicited messages from others in return.
You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your account name, password and all of your other account information. Please be careful whenever you are online and whenever you leave your computer.
Please review our Terms and Conditions of Use, which are incorporated herein by reference, for additional information before using our website.
