We will not sell your Personal Information to any third party, but your Personal Information may be shared by use with third parties either through the features of the Site itself (within your control) or in the following circumstances:
With Your Consent: When you expressly consent to allow us to share your Personal Information for specific uses, this includes through accepting any notices on the Site. This may include leaving your demographic or other personally identifying information on any review or within any employer profile.
