Tradescraper ’s mission is to connect the world’s professionals to enable them to be more productive and successful. Our registered users (“Members”) share their professional identities, engage with their network, exchange knowledge and professional insights, post and view relevant content, and find business opportunities. Content on some of our services is also visible to unregistered viewers (“Visitors”). We believe that our services allow our Members to effectively compete and achieve their full career potential. The cornerstone of our business is to focus on our Members first. We protect your personal information using industry-standard safeguards. We may share your information with your consent or as required by law as detailed in this policy, and we will always let you know when we make significant changes to this Privacy Policy. Maintaining your trust is our top priority, so we adhere to the following principles to protect your privacy:

• We protect your personal information and will only provide it to third parties: (1) with your consent; (2) where it is necessary to carry out your instructions; (3) as reasonably necessary in order to provide our features and functionality to you; (4) when we reasonably believe it is required by law, subpoena or other legal process; or (5) as necessary to enforce our User Agreement or protect the rights, property, or safety of Tradescraper, its Members and Visitors, and the public.

• We have implemented appropriate security safeguards designed to protect your information in accordance with industry standards.

This Privacy Policy applies to Tradescraper.com and the Tradescraper mobile application, Tradescraper platform technology (such as “Share on Tradescraper” plugins for publishers) and all other Tradescraper websites, apps, developer platforms and other products and services (collectively “Tradescraper” or the “Services”). We may modify this Privacy Policy from time to time, and if we make material changes to it, we will provide notice through our Service, or by other means so that you may review the changes before you continue to use Tradescraper. If you object to any changes, you may close your account.

1. What information we collect

1.1. Data Controllers
Our Privacy Policy applies to any Member or Visitor. Tradescraper Corporation controls your information. Wherever you reside, the personal information provided to or gathered by Tradescraper is controlled by Tradescraper Corporation. If you have any concern about providing information to us or having such information displayed on the Tradescraper services or otherwise used in any manner permitted in this Privacy Policy and the User Agreement (together also referred to as Tradescraper ’s Terms of Service), you should not become a Member of Tradescraper, visit our websites, apps or otherwise use our Services. If you have already registered, you can close your account by visiting the account settings, as applicable. We collect your personal information in the following ways:
1.2. Registration
When you create an account with us, you provide us with information (including your first name, last name, username, email address, password, country, department, position, news subscription, business category, business subcategory) that we use to offer you a personalized, relevant experience on Tradescraper. To create an account on Tradescraper, you must provide us with at least your name, email address and/or mobile number, and a password. You can choose to provide further information about yourself during the registration process (for example, your gender and location). We use this information to provide you with more customized services like language-specific profile pages, updates, and content, more relevant ads, and more valuable career opportunities, and it may appear on your Tradescraper profile that is viewable by others. You understand that, by creating an account, Tradescraper and others will be able to identify you by your Tradescraper profile, and you allow Tradescraper to use this information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and our User Agreement. We may also ask for your credit card details, your tax registration number and the details that refer to your company, if you create an account in order to advertise not only yourself but your work too. These details will be safe in our database but if your credit card details will be extracted via interception from our site, we are not responsible, as long as we shall also be hacked.
1.3. Profile Information
You can add professional details – like your job title, education, and skills – to your profile. A complete profile helps you be found by other people for opportunities. It also means we can show you relevant ads and content. After you create an account , you may choose to provide additional information on your Tradescraper profile, such as descriptions of your skills, professional experience, and educational background. You can list honors, awards, professional affiliations, Tradescraper Group memberships, networking objectives, companies or individuals that you follow, and other information including content. With your approval, your connections may provide recommendations and endorsements of you. Providing additional information enables you to derive more benefit from Tradescraper by helping you express your professional identity; find other professionals, opportunities, and information; and help recruiters and business opportunities find you. It also enables us to serve you ads and other relevant content on and off Tradescraper.
1.4. Customer Service
When you contact our Help Center, we collect information to respond to your questions and better serve you. When you contact our customer support services (e.g. on Tradescraper’s Help Center ), we collect information that helps us categorize your question, respond to it, and, if applicable, investigate any breach of our User Agreement or this Privacy Policy. We also use this information to track potential problems and trends and customize our support responses to better serve you.

We give you a number of ways to opt out of these ads, including through the Ad Choices icon shown with any Tradescraper ads on third-party sites. If you do not want to receive Tradescraper ads on third-party sites, you can opt out. We target ads to Members and Visitors both on and off Tradescraper through a variety of ad networks and ad exchanges, using:

• Advertising technologies like web beacons, pixels, ad tags, cookies, and mobile identifiers as permitted by mobile platforms both on and off Tradescraper;

If you wish to not receive targeted ads from most third party companies, you may opt-out by, as applicable, clicking on the “Ads by Tradescraper” link in or next to the ad .Please note this does not opt you out of being served advertising.

Also, advertisers receive the URL of the page that you are on when you click an ad on Tradescraper.

We may also receive location data passed to us from third-party services or GPS-enabled devices that you have set up, which we use to show you local information on our mobile applications. Most mobile devices allow you to prevent real time location data being sent to Tradescraper, and of course Tradescraper will honor your settings. In the case of our Android apps, you will be provided notice of the types of data (e.g. location) that will be sent to us. If you choose to use our app after this notice, we process this data to enable registration or preview product features for you (e.g. jobs near you). If you choose not to become a Member, we will delete this information.

Tradescraper is a dynamic, innovative environment, which means we are always seeking to improve the services we offer you. We often introduce new features, some of which may result in the collection of new information (for example, when the Endorsements feature launched, we began collecting information about skills for which Members were endorsed and the individuals who endorsed them). Furthermore, new partnerships or corporate acquisitions may result in new features, and we may potentially collect new types of information. All registered members and users rate each other in order to maintain secure and satisfying services for every user, either registered or not.

Tradescraper offers a “public profile” feature that allows Members to publish portions of their Tradescraper profile to the public Internet.
