1. Your Consent (PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!)
2. Which information we may collect on the Users?
We may collect two types of data and information from Users:
The first type of information is non-identifiable and anonymous information ("Non-personal Information"). We are not aware of the identity of the User from whom we have collected the Non-personal Information. Non-Personal Information is any unconcealed aggregated information which does not enable identification of an individual User, and which is available to us while such User is using the Site. Non-personal Information which is being gathered consists of technical information, such as screen resolution, type of operating system, type of browser, keyboard language, etc. Furthermore, Non-personal Information which is being gathered consists of behavioral information and may contain, among other things, the User's activity on the Site such as the User's 'click-stream', the period of time spent on certain pages, number of pages visited by the User, etc.
The second type of information is personally identifiable information ("Personal Information"). This information may identify an individual or may be of a private and/or sensitive nature.
Users of the Site automatically provide their IP address mainly for enhancing their experience and for geo-location and security purposes as further detailed below.
In addition, Personal Information which is being gathered consists of any personal details provided consciously and voluntarily by the User.
Users who create a Profile in order to use our Services should provide the following details as part of the registration process: full name, valid e-mail address, country of residence, and employment related information which may include, inter alia, your academic background, technical and product skills, professional experience and work experience

In the event that you register to the Site through your existing Social Network Account, and elect to import your profile information from such Social Network Account, then such Social Network Account provides us with access to certain information about you as is stored in your Social Network Account, namely, any information which is detailed and displayed to the User in the notice which appears during the "Log in via LinkedIn" process (for example, full profile, the primary email address you use for your LinkedIn account, address, phone number and any other information contained in LinkedIn and required to create your Profile). Please read carefully such notice in order to understand what information is provided by such Social Network Account to us. We may collect your login information and other relevant information necessary to enable us to access your Social Network Account (such as, user access token) in order to collect and/or store, to the extent legally permissible, the abovementioned data contained within your Social Network Account (or any part of it).
