You can store your resume or other personal Profiles in our database, but not allow it to be searchable by potential employers, training or other vendors.

We attempt to limit access to our searchable Profiles database (or copies thereof ) only to paying employers, recruiters, hiring managers, headhunters, and human resource professionals, as well as law enforcement and national security agencies, but cannot guarantee that other parties will not gain access to this database. We are not responsible for the use made of Profiles by third parties who access such Profiles while they are in our searchable database. However, the portions of your searchable Profile (not your contact information) that are automatically made public in your HireWare .com LLC website profiles are accessible to anyone who uses the HireWare.com LLC Networking product. You may remove your Profiles from our searchable database, or delete your profile at any time. However, employers, recruiters and others who have paid for access to that database or to obtain a copy of that database, as well as parties who have otherwise gained access to the database, may have retained a copy of your Profiles in their own files or databases. We are not responsible for the retention , use or privacy of resumes or profiles in these instances.
