Collection and Use of Information
When you use or register with this site, XFish.net may collect personal information
from you including profile information (name, e-mail address, address, zip code,
telephone number) and, if applicable, employment information (desired specialty,
title, geographic location, compensation). The profile information may be
stored indefinitely and may be collected and processed in one or more databases
maintained directly or indirectly by XFish.net. From time to time, XFish.net may also
ask you for other information via surveys, such as information regarding your
areas of interest, your likes and dislikes regarding the site, your career
goals, services that you would like offered on this site, and other such
information that will help us improve the service and features made available to
you on this site.
We use information collected through this site, including personal information,
to perform our services. We may contact you regarding changes to and new
offerings on our site, and we may also send you e-mails or marketing information
related to our services.
As a user of this site, you have the option of submitting or posting your resume
to the site in order to apply for an employment opportunity online. By
doing so, your resume may be forwarded, transmitted, or ported to third-party
clients of XFish.net or other third parties for consideration (which may include
recruiters or placement consultants).
XFish.net collects information about use of this site, such as the pages users
visit most frequently, the services users access the most, and the links to
other sites that users most often visit. XFish.net only uses such data in the
aggregate. This information helps us determine what is most beneficial for
our users, and how we can improve the services and features provided to the
users of our site. We may share this collected information with other
sites linked to XFish.net, but only in the aggregate, so that they too may
understand how this site is used, in order to improve the services and features
provided to you. Such aggregate information will never contain any
identifiable personal information.
An IP (Internet Protocol) address is assigned to your computer each time you
establish a connection on the Internet. XFish.net uses your IP address to
help diagnose problems with our server and to otherwise administer this site.
XFish.net may use "cookies" to maintain and track your sessions on this site.
Disclosure of Information
XFish.net may disclose personal information to third parties to perform its
services or to comply with applicable laws, legal process served on XFish.net, or
in legal matters or proceedings where (i) such information is deemed relevant by
XFish.net, (ii) where XFish.net believes that the law requires such disclosure, (iii)
where XFish.net believes such disclosure is necessary to protect its rights or
property or (iv) where XFish.net believes such disclose is necessary to prevent a
crime, protect the public and/or XFish.net personnel, or protect national security.
To the extent that you include your personal information (including e-mail
address) on any resume you submit or post to the site, XFish.net cannot control the
use of such information by third-party clients of XFish.net or third-party
recruiters or placement consultants that obtain your resume from XFish.net.
In the event that you transmit e-mail, instant messages or any other

items to this site (including the XFish.net domain), or to any related or
affiliated site, such communication shall become the property of XFish.net and may
be utilized by XFish.net in connection with its operations, services and business,
and XFish.net shall have the unrestricted right to any ideas, concepts, know-how,

Security and Internet Use Considerations
Remember to close your browser window when you have finished your work.
This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and
correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer
in a public place like a library or Internet cafe.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be
100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal
information, XFish.net cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you
transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your
own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we will endeavor to protect
it on our systems by using secure servers behind a firewall.
By using this site, you consent to the collection, storage, use and
dissemination of personal information as described above. XFish.net will post
the most current policy. As the policy may change from time to time, you
should check back periodically.
If at any time you have questions or concerns about XFish.net's privacy commitment
or anything contained in this Privacy Statement, please feel free to contact us
via the Contact Us form or
