    4.Tracking Technologies / Cookies


    A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies on this site. We may link the information we store in cookies to personally identifiable information you submit while on our site, such as your email address.

    We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. One purpose of our cookies is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you register with TeachingJobs.com.com, a cookie helps us to recall your specific account information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as resume information, and so on. When you return to the same TeachingJobs.com page, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the TeachingJobs.com features that you customized. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” directory.

    You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you choose to decline cookies, you may experience problems accessing your personal account on our site. Your ability to search our job listings does not require that you accept any cookies.

  • Web Beacons / Gifs

    We, and our third party advertising partners employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personally identifiable information. To learn more about our advertising company’s use of clear gifs, please go to [NAME OF ADVERTISER’S SITE.]

  • Analytics / Log Files

    As is true of most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

    Tracking Technologies / Cookies

    We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.

  • 3rd Party Tracking

    The use of tracking technologies by our service providers, technology/advertising partners or other 3rd party assets (such as social media) on the site is not covered by our privacy policy. These 3rd parties may use cookies, clear gifs, images, and scripts to help them better manage their content on our site. We do not have access or control over these technologies. We do not tie the information gathered to our Customers’ or Users’ personally identifiable information.

  • Behavioral Targeting

    We partner with a third party ad network to both display advertising on our Web site and manage our advertising on other sites. Our ad network partner uses cookies and Web beacons to collect non-personally identifiable information about your activities on this and other Web sites to provide you targeted advertising based upon your interests. If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you targeted ads, you may opt-out by clicking Here. Please note this does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads.

    5. Security

    The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).

    We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can contact us at privacy@teachingjobs.com

    6. Additional Information

  • Links to 3rd Party Sites

    Our Site includes links to other Web sites whose privacy practices may differ from those of Teachingjobs.com. If you submit personal information to any of those sites, your information is governed by their privacy policies. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy policy of any Web site you visit.

  • Referrals

    If you choose to use our referral feature to tell a friend about a job, we will ask you for your friend’s name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email with a summary of the job listing and an invitation for him or her to visit the site. Teachingjobs.com uses this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of this feature. It is never retained or sold to 3rd parties for marketing purposes. Your friend may contact us at privacy@teachingjobs.com to request that we remove this information from our database.



  • Member Profiles and Resume Privacy

    Job seekers have two options when storing their resume on our TeachingJobs.com: they can make it "public" or "private." A private resume is only viewable to select employers to which you apply online through our site. A public resume is stored in our general resume database, and can be viewed by bona fide employers who pay for a resume database subscription.

    Employers, on the other hand, can remain anonymous by leaving the Organization / Company name blank in the job ad form and accepting "blind box" responses through their TeachingJobs.com Employer Account. All Users may change the privacy settings of their profile through their account portal.

  • Social Media Widgets

    Our Web site includes Social Media Features, such as a link to our Twitter page. These Features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our site, and may set a cookie to enable the Feature to function properly. Social Media Features and Widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Site. Your interactions with these Features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

  • Changes To This Policy

    We may update this privacy policy to reflect changes to our information practices. If we make any material changes we will notify you by email (sent to the e-mail address specified in your account) or by means of a notice on this Site prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.
