Information about AWC JobNet visitors
We gather information about all of our users collectively, such as what Web browsers are used most, in order to determine what enhancements are beneficial for our users. We may, however, share this information with our partners, in the aggregate, so that they may understand how AWC JobNet users, collectively, use our site. By doing so, our partners will be able to create a better overall experience for you, as well.

General information disclosure
We do not disclose information about your individual visits to AWC JobNet, or personal information that you provide, such as your name, address, email address, telephone number, credit card number, etc., to any outside parties, except where (1) a job seeker opts-in to data sharing for the offer of services by third parties, (2) the information is disclosed to an AWC JobNet partner company, or (3) where there is a reasonable belief disclosure is required by law. But, we may record and share aggregated information with our partners.
