Such data sharing with our affiliates will be performed for a number of specific reasons.

Such sharing is also performed to facilitate improved data analysis, testing, research, and service improvement.
– More Employers, More Job Listings and More Job Seekers
Such data sharing allows Job Seekers to access an even broader database of Job Listings and Employers, and for Employers to access more Job Seekers. For example, this allows Indeed and its affiliates to recommend more jobs or employers on Indeed.com and other affiliated websites. It also facilitates applications and the display of job listings on such websites.
We and our affiliates are able to recommend job seekers (and their resumes or resume extracts) to an employer hosted by us or an affiliate. Equally, we and our affiliates are able to recommend job listings hosted by us or by an affiliate to job seekers visiting ResumePerfector.com and websites of our affiliates.
