Understanding your rights and responsibilities as a user of the Talent Acquisition Portal® (TAP)
Jobseekers! Protect your personal information by never providing social security, credit card or bank account numbers to prospective employers.
The Talent Acquisition Portal® (TAP) is especially concerned about winning and maintaining the trust of the people in our community. Very often, we hear the question, “Will my privacy be respected?” The answer is a resounding “Yes!” TAP is dedicated not only to advocating on behalf of our community, but also to supporting an individual’s right to have their personal information held in the strictest confidence.
This Portal does not collect personally identifiable information about individuals except when specifically, knowingly and voluntarily provided by such individuals. A user’s personally identifiable information will not be transferred, sold or loaned to any third party unless otherwise stated at the time of collection.
While your individual information is protected as outlined above, we reserve the right to use aggregated, anonymous data about our users as a group. For instance, we might report to potential advertisers that a certain percentage of our users are interested in Job Fairs, based on site usage or expressed interests.
TAP may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information.
It should also be noted that this Web site contains links to other sites. TAP is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of those Web sites. We may supplement personal information submitted by you with information from third party sources in order to reduce errors in our database, authenticate users and or prevent abuse of our system.
In our continuing effort to increase the functionality of our site, some sections of Talent Acquisition Portal® (TAP) may not be entirely compatible with accepted accessibility standards.
TAP is working to make these sections accessible as quickly as possible. In addition, some of our partners’ sites are not yet Bobby compliant; we are working with our partners to encourage increased accessibility.
If you use an assistive technology that is not compatible with our site or one of our partners’ sites, please email us at Support@tapability.org. TAP welcomes your feedback and hopes that you will be patient with us as we build this community together.
The Talent Acquisition Portal® (TAP) is a software application that is solely owned by the CSAVR/NET-disABLEDperson, Inc. Partnership. Its purpose is to connect our community members with employers looking to hire within our community. TAP is simply acting as a conduit to connect you the individual with a disability with a potential employer. Resume posting is free for our community members. TAP expressly disclaims any responsibility or liability for any damage, loss, or injury arising out of a relationship between one of our members and an employer who met on our site. Any difficulties that may arise between a community member and employer that have met on our site is solely between that community member and that employer and both will hold TAP/disABLEDperson, Inc./NET/CSAVR harmless for any liability, damage or loss.
Our online surveys ask visitors for contact information (like their email address) and demographic information (like their zip code, age, or income level). The Talent Acquisition Portal® (TAP) uses contact data from our surveys to send the user information about our organization and promotional material targeted to a user’s expressed interests. Contact information may also be used to contact the user when necessary. Users may, however, opt-out of receiving future mailings, as described in the opt-out choice section below. Demographic and profile data is also collected at our site. TAP uses this data to tailor our user’s experience at our site, providing targeted information and services. This information is shared with advertisers on an aggregate basis.
The Talent Acquisition Portal® (TAP) may place a “cookie” in the browser files of the user’s computer. The cookie itself does not contain any personally identifiable information. Although the cookie could enable TAP to relate a user’s use of this site to information that the user has specifically and knowingly provided, TAP does not do so except in cases as outlined above, or under an official law enforcement directive, to comply with laws or regulations of governmental or regulatory body or in response to a valid subpoena, warrant or to protect the rights of NET/CSAVR/disABLEDperson, Inc. or others. We may use the Cookie to store your user ID.
If you don’t like cookies, your Web browser may include an option that allows you not to accept them. However, we don’t recommend using this option, since it makes browsing our site a less enjoyable and rich experience.
