Privacy Policy

We take your privacy very seriously.
Some information you share on ESOPMarketplace may allow others to identify your nationality, ethnic origin, religion or other aspects of your private life that are considered as sensitive by a number of laws in various countries. You acknowledge and agree that you have no obligation whatsoever to share such information on any ESOPMarketplace web page and realize that any User may use or misuse such information. You are allowed to modify or remove such information at any time or even close your account completely but acknowledge that the information will have been available to the public from the moment you entered it until the moment you removed it and ESOPMarketplace will not accept any responsibility for the use or misuse it has been done of such information. ESOPMarketplace may keep a copy of this information for its legal archives and will not share with any third party unless required by law or to resolve a dispute.

For every field of your profile, except for those that are absolutely essential to the normal networking functions and which are compulsorily public and those that we consider as confidential and that we are using for administration and statistics purposes which are compulsorily not public, ESOPMarketplace has selected a privacy option for you by default but you have the option to make the information public or not public by using the privacy settings in "my profile". Please note that, while information that you have decided to set as not public will not appear in your public profile, such information will be used for matching purposes and your profile will appear in search results obtained if criteria requested are fulfilled by such information. For example, if you mention that you are open to new employment in a specific sector or in a specific function and you set this as not public, such information will not be visible in your profile but a Participant performing a search based on Participants being open to new employment in such specific sector or specific function will see you in their list of results.

In order to ensure the promotion of our Participants, limited portions of your profile, excluding contacts details, will be accessible on the public internet. If you do not wish to benefit from this value added service then please let us know by using the "Contact Us" form and we will use our best efforts to ensure that your ESOPMarketplace profile disappears from the public internet at the next search engines visits. Such a request may entail further developments from Us and we may not be able to accomplish it. Should you wish to write a testimonial about ESOPMarketplace, then please note that such testimonial may be used by ESOPMarketplace on its webpages or newsletters or any other kind of communication.

Any personal information you share will be secured. "Personal Information" is information that allow other Users to contact you, such as for example email address or telephone number. The Personal Information you share on ESOPMarketplace helps other Users to contact you and to potentially offer various opportunities to you. Non Personal Information, such as for example business profile or objectives or education, helps ESOPMarketplace to highlight various kinds of opportunities to you and match your business requirements with other Users that correspond to such requirements, and may be used to send or display messages or advertisements that are relevant to your profile. Such information that is collected by ESOPMarketplace from Users is the exclusive property of ESOPMarketplace and may be used as such. We will only share your Personal Information with third parties when you instruct us to do so, for example in a connection request, or to provide specific services or information or contribute to the promotion of your profile as a ESOP or related professional, or if it is requested by law or necessary within a legal process.
