Tapwage offers any user the choice to utilize the Tapwage website. If you create a resume on, upload your resume to or apply to a job through or otherwise use the Tapwage website, you are specifically consenting to the use of any personal information you have provided to Tapwage as set forth herein and in the Terms of Service.

When you give Tapwage contact information (such as your name and email address) and demographic information, you agree that Tapwage may utilize this information as set forth herein. You agree that Tapwage may, as part of its services to you, communicate with you, or initiate communication with you on behalf of a 3rd party, through your Tapwage account or through other means made available through your contact information such as email, phone, or postal mail. If and to the extent permitted by applicable law, Tapwage, or its designated third party partners, may also use your contact information to (i) send you job alerts; (ii) create an account; (iii) send you information about Tapwage; and, (iv) if you are located in the USA, send you promotional material from some of Tapwage’s partners. Tapwage may use demographic and/or profile data to tailor your experience on Tapwage’s site, show you content that Tapwage thinks you may be interested in, and display content according to your preferences. Your personal information gets placed on the Tapwage Website when you upload or edit a resume. To the extent you upload a resume or edit it, you are making the resume, your name and other personal information that you place on your resume available to third parties who may be interested in you as an employee. 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 information contained in your resume and you may receive unsolicited contact from parties unaffiliated with Tapwage and for whom Tapwage has no responsibility. If you do not want your personal information posted on the Website, you should not upload it. Tapwage reserves the right to charge third parties a fee for accessing your information as part of Tapwage’s services. At your direction, Tapwage may also send your resume to third parties if you choose to apply for a job listing.

While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

However, if that business materially changes this statement or the information-handling practices as described in this Privacy Policy, you will be notified by email and/or through a notice posted on the website, and you may opt-out of the use of your existing information in a new manner. This Privacy Policy inures to the benefit of any successors or assigns of Tapwage or the assets of Tapwage.
