We collect information that personally identifies you, such as your name and e-mail address when you register or create an account, and your company name, job history, and other personally identifiable information that you or your Employer choose to provide us with or that you choose to include in your profile (“Account Data”). If you want to fast-track the creation of your profile, we can pre-populate your profile with publicly available information about you from third party platforms, such as LinkedIn, when prompted during registration onboarding. If you do not wish for us to do this, you may choose to proceed without this option. This publicly available information is considered part of the Public Data Set. You may be asked to provide us with Account Data when you use any of our Services, when you communicate with us, and at other times.

(iv) Information You Input or Upload while Utilizing Our Services
As part of utilizing our Services you may input or upload information about talents, skills, previous work history and employers, educational background, job interests, personal qualities, and other similar information; you may also provide us with your credentials to third-party sites or services, such as LinkedIn, in order to provide or synchronize certain emails, employment history, skills or other information with our Services; and may provide us with other information (collectively “Customer Data”). We use this data to provide the Services to you and your Employer, including our Work Genome technology.
• Flux Work Genome
Our goal is to help make great matches between your Employer and employees like yourself to illuminate pools of talent previously unknown to your Employer. To do that, we have developed our Work Genome: a learning data set based on the data provided by you or your Employer. Our Work Genome allows your Employer to better understand skills, qualities, experiences and talents you may have to better assess whether you could be a match for any work or employment needs, as well as assisting you in being surfaced by our Service to your Employer based on additional job and skills related data in order for you to find new and exciting work opportunities or projects with your Employer. If you wish to limit the visibility of your information you may do so via the user settings within the Services.
4. How We Use Information and When We May Share and Disclose Information Generally
We use the information, including Account Data, Customer Data, and Usage Data alone or in combination with other information that we may collect about you, including information from third parties, for the following purposes:
• to provide you with the Site and Services, including to send you alerts about your account, provide you with job and project opportunities, as well as skills, qualities or other assessments;
• to allow your Employer to assess and understand your skill set, employment background, eligibility and fit for job or project opportunities, including via operation of our Work Genome;
• to allow your Employer to contact you if your information matches a job or project opportunity;
• to provide information on where individuals in your organization have worked before, their skill sets, how you compare to their profile, and work or projects they have previously or are currently working on;
• to provide you with information on jobs or projects that you may be interested in and/or qualified for;

• to otherwise communicate with you about Flux, your Employer, or work opportunities.
5. Third Party Service Providers
From time to time, we may utilize other businesses to assist us in providing the Services (“Service Providers”). For example, we use Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a Service Provider to host the Site and Services and store Account Data and Customer Data. Your information is not disclosed to AWS, but is transferred through, and resides on, computers owned by AWS. AWS is ISO/IEC 27018 certified and has a system of controls in place that specifically address the privacy protection of Flux’s content. We may contract with other Service Providers to provide certain services, such as hosting and maintenance, data storage and management, authentication, analytics, and marketing and promotions. We only provide our Service Providers with the information necessary for them to perform these services on our behalf. Each Service Provider must agree to use reasonable security procedures and practices, appropriate to the nature of the information involved, in order to protect your personal data (as defined by applicable law) from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Service Providers are prohibited from using your personal data other than as specified by us.

9. Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement
We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We may disclose Account Data and any other information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties if, in our discretion, we believe it is necessary or appropriate in order to respond to legal requests (including court orders and subpoenas), to protect the safety, property, or rights of our company or of any third party, to prevent or stop any illegal, unethical, or legally actionable activity, or to comply with the law.
10. Be Careful When You Share Information with Others
Please be aware that whenever you share information on any public area of the Site or Services, that information may be accessed by others. In addition, please remember that when you share information in any other communications with third parties, that information may be passed along or made public by others. This means that anyone with access to such information can potentially use it for any purpose, including sending unsolicited communications.
We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of information transmitted to us. However, no data transmission over the Internet or other network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect information transmitted on or through the Site or Services, we cannot and do not guarantee the security of any information you transmit on or through the Site or Services, and you do so at your own risk.

If you are located outside of the United States, please be advised that we process and store all information in the United States. The laws in the United States may not be as protective of your privacy as those in your location. By using the Site or Services, you are agreeing to the collection, use, transfer, and disclosure of your data and communications will be governed by the applicable laws in the United States.
15. Your Right to Opt-Out of Flux’s Public Data Set
Our goal is to help make great matches between your Employer and employees like yourself to illuminate pools of talent previously unknown to your Employer. In furtherance of this goal, we have developed a public data set (“Public Data Set”) that bolsters the data provided by you or your Employer. Our technology may continuously collect public personal information such as names, email addresses, approximate locations, educational background, employment history and job-skills related information, and other recruiting-related information from third party platforms, such as LinkedIn, to integrate into our Work Genome, to use as aggregated statistics in reports, or to otherwise improve the Service.
If you do not wish to have your information included in our Public Data Set, we will honor your request to opt-out. To opt-out please provide your request with name and email address to email@example.com and we will remove your information from our system, or follow-up with you if we need further information in order to honor your request.
Please note, we may need to retain certain data about you in order to ensure that we can continue to honor your request to opt out. We will maintain the minimum amount of information necessary for this purpose, and will not share this information with your Employer.
