Privacy Shield Principles
CPI shall inform an individual of the purpose for which it collects and uses the Personal Information and the types of non-agent third parties to which we disclose or may disclose that Information. CPI will provide individuals with the choice and means for limiting the use and disclosure of their Personal Information. Notice will be provided when individuals are first asked to provide Personal Information, or as soon as practicable thereafter, and in any event before CPI uses or discloses the Information for a purpose other than for which it was originally collected.
CPI uses the information we gather on the CPI Websites, whether personal, demographic, collective or technical, for the purpose of operating and improving the CPI Websites, fostering a positive user experience, and delivering the products and services available from CPI or its affiliated companies.
CPI uses the information for:
- Monitoring information to ensure compliance with Career Partners International policies;
- Editorial and feedback solicitation purposes;
- Establishing and maintaining communication, including marketing, advertising and other beneficial services; and,
- Compliance with federal, state, provincial or municipal laws
- Personal information that you provide to the CPI Websites will not be made available to third parties outside of CPI without explicit permission from you. We do not disclose to third parties your personal information, combined personal and demographic information or information about your use of the CPI Websites (such as the areas you visit or the services you access).
CPI will offer individuals the opportunity to choose (opt out) whether their Personal Information is (1) to be disclosed to a third party or (2) to be used for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual.
Accountability for Onward Transfers
Prior to disclosing Personal Information to a third party, CPI will notify the individual of such disclosure and allow the individual the choice (opt out) of such disclosure.
To enable us to more efficiently provide the services you have requested from us, CPI may share aggregated anonymous information about visitors to the CPI Websites (for example, the number of visitors to the CPI Websites) with its clients, agents and other third parties so that they may understand the kinds of visitors to the CPI Portal Site and how those visitors use the site.
We may disclose your personal information to other CPI companies, agents, contractors and individuals we employ to perform functions on our behalf. Only the information necessary to perform a specified business function will be disclosed (e.g. to provide career assistance, host our web servers, or provide customer service). These companies and individuals will have access to your personal information only as necessary to perform their functions, but they may not share that information with any other third party and are subject to strict terms of confidentiality.
In other circumstances we may be required or authorized by law to disclose the information you provide. Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information if legally required to do so, if requested to do so by a governmental entity or if we believe in good faith that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process; (b) protect the rights or property of CPI or its affiliated companies; (c) prevent a crime or protect national security; or (d) protect the personal safety of users or the public. CPI is held accountable for onward transfer of your information. CPI is potentially liable for any unlawful onward transfer of data to third parties.

If you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public location, remember to sign out and close your browser window when you have finished to ensure that others cannot access your personal information.
Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation

CPI will allow an individual access to their Personal Information to correct, amend or delete inaccurate information, except where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the privacy of the individual in the case in question or where the rights of persons other than the individual would be violated.
If you have any questions about the collection, use or disclosure of your personal information by CPI or our agents, you may contact our Privacy Officer. Except in limited circumstances, as specifically provided by applicable privacy legislation, we will tell you whether we hold personal information about you, the source of the information and allow you access to your personal information.
