Becoming a ClearFit Member allows Individuals to enjoy Career Feedback Reports and Employers to receive special products, pricing and promotions that are not available to non-members. Membership was created to help Individuals learn more about their work-related personality and motivation characteristics and learn what jobs and employers fit them best. Membership was created for Employers to help them learn more about their JobFingerprint™ job profiles, candidates and employees. ClearFit.com is primarily a career survey and job matching site comprised of a ClearFit for Individuals service for individual career seekers and a ClearFit for Employers service for employers. In order to provide our unique service to members, we are required to collect relevant psychometric, job search and recruitment-related information during member registration. For career seekers, this information includes the results of their ClearFit Online Survey, employment history, past education, skills, certifications and contact information and it is stored in our central server database behind a hardware firewall at the ClearFit.com server. We call this the career seeker’s PersonalFingerprint™ personal profile information. For employers, this information includes their job description criteria, candidates, hiring criteria, including education, personality, motivation, experience criteria and contact information and it is stored in our central server database behind a hardware firewall at the ClearFit.com server. We call this the employer’s JobFingerprint™ job profile and Registration information. The psychometric survey involves 146 questions and employment/education-related criteria which compare members against employers’ corresponding job-related criteria in the database, based on personality, interests and other job-related criteria. The career reports individual members receive as part of the ClearFit application process are theirs alone and completely confidential. Members always control who has access to their personally identifiable information. Participating ClearFit employers may access members’ PersonalFingerprint™ personal profile data and the interpretation of raw survey scores to create their own reports, but not their personally-identifiable information without that member’s consent. When a member applies to an employer using the ClearFit web site, they are consenting to allow that employer the ability to request their personally identifiable information. Employers will use this information during their hiring process to make more accurate hiring decisions, based on how candidates’ PersonalFingerprint™ personal profiles match against their JobFingerprint™ job profiles.
Members agree that their information may be transferred across national boundaries and may be stored and processed in any of the countries in which ClearFit and its affiliates and subsidiaries maintain offices, including, without limitation, the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Belgium, Germany, Japan, Brazil, Russia, Mexico, Philippines and Australia. ClearFit will comply with the various Privacy and Data Protection Acts and Laws in the countries in which it operates. Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with an appropriate law enforcement investigation, current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Web site.
ClearFit collects but does not store credit card information when you purchase any of our products using a credit card.
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys, email communications or contests. Participation in these surveys, email communications or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose their job search-related information. Information requested may include any job search-related information, such as contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code). Information collected will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use, satisfaction and services of this site.
Our users are given the opportunity to 'opt-out' of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information. Users who no longer wish to receive contact from ClearFit or from our partners may opt-out of receiving further communications from a particular party by replying with unsubscribe in the subject line in the email or email us at info@ClearFit.com
ClearFit may, on occasion, with your consent, share some or all of your personally identifiable information with third party service providers for processing (such as when employers use other third party recruitment software providers). In order to process credit card transactions, ClearFit must share your credit card information with our credit card processors to complete our billing process. These third parties may be located in other jurisdictions. Therefore, your information may be processed and stored in other jurisdictions and, as a result, other governments, courts, or law enforcement or regulatory agencies may be able to obtain disclosure of your information through foreign laws. All such third party processors are bound by contract not to use the members personally identifiable information for their own purposes including their own marketing purposes or provide it to any third parties.
When you register with ClearFit.com, you will be able to refer friends and/or employers who you think might be interested in our unique services. In ClearFit for Individuals, you are able to refer people using tools such as the Job Fit Report. Using ClearFit for Employers, you can refer other employers as well. ClearFit does not store the referred person or employer’s email address until they register as members of ClearFit themselves. We do not sell referral email addresses to any third parties. We at ClearFit strongly encourage all our members not to engage in spamming activities. The referred party may contact ClearFit at info@ClearFit.com to request the removal of this information from our database.

ClearFit.com strictly prohibits members engaging in spam and other tactics which may constitute abuse of the Internet in order to seek referrals. What is Spam? Generally speaking, activities which would constitute spam include the sending of: (i) unsolicited commercial e-mail, (ii) unsolicited bulk e-mail, (iii) mass e-mail, and/or (iv) junk e-mail, containing a message that advertises goods or services. The defining feature of spam is that the e-mail is sent to someone without their prior consent or in the absence of a previous relationship between the sender and the recipient. Spam is the electronic equivalent of the junk mail you receive in your postal mailbox every day or those telemarketers who call at dinner time!
Spam can take several different forms. When someone logs on to Usenet or message boards and sends or posts messages which are unrelated to the topic of discussion, that’s spam. In addition, the sending of an electronic mail message addressed to a recipient with whom the sender does not have an existing business or personal relationship or is not sent at the request of, or with the express consent of, the recipient constitutes spam. The act of engaging in activities which constitute spam is called spamming.
Other types of Internet abuse may also qualify as spam. Examples include, spamming of chat rooms and spamming via Internet Relay Chat or "Instant Messaging" systems (such as ICQ). In reality, the various methods of spamming will continue to evolve with the Internet as new ways of online communication between people develop.
No one likes sorting through junk mail or talking to telemarketers, but spam is even worse! Electronic junk mail costs recipients of spam more time and money than it costs the sender. The unwitting recipient of spam is required to download, sort through, and identify what e-mail is legitimate and what e-mail is junk e-mail, and then discard it. If the recipient pays for Internet access by the hour or minute, then sorting through spam messages leads to increased time online, which translates into higher monthly bills from their Internet Service Provider.
Conduct on the Internet is governed by an unwritten set of rules called ‘Netiquette,’ and one of those rules is that it's not acceptable to send out unsolicited mass e-mail. Spam can also slow the performance of the Internet. There have been instances where large volumes of spam have slowed down e-mail delivery for hours (or even days!). Spam sometimes causes computers on the Internet to crash. Most importantly, we feel that spamming is just plain rude.
ClearFit’s referral program is meant to encourage people to introduce the benefits of ClearFit to their friends and family, and to people with whom they transact with online. We do not intend to, nor do we encourage, the use of spam under any circumstances.
Upon receipt of a credible complaint concerning spamming, ClearFit may immediately suspend the membership of the individual who is alleged to have conducted the spamming. A suspension of membership privileges is intended to prevent a possible spammer from continuing to benefit from their activities by prohibiting the registration of referrals or the accruing of additional referral payments. If the spamming incident is not verified after a through investigation by ClearFit , the suspension may be lifted and all referrals and referral payments which have accrued during the period of suspension will be restored. ClearFit may, but is not obligated to, lift a suspension imposed on a member due to alleged spamming activities.
Anyone who is found by ClearFit to have spammed other Internet users in an attempt to gain referral bonuses will lose their ClearFit membership privileges and their account will be terminated. Any referral bonuses acquired in the spammer’s account will be confiscated by ClearFit . Any monies which remain in the spammer’s account after confiscation of referral bonuses will be returned to the account holder.
If you feel that a member of ClearFit has spammed you, please contact info@ClearFit.com. Be sure to include evidence of the spamming such as a copy of the e-mail, posting or message with full message headers or the usenet message. It would assist our efforts in confirming your complaint if you include any other information that can be used to identify the parties involved. An incomplete complaint may result in delays in the enforcement of our Anti-Spam Policy.
We created the ClearFit Referral Program to reward our members for introducing the ClearFit Program to their friends and family, and to people they transact with online. There are many ways in which you can participate in our referral program without resorting to spam. Here are a few guidelines to help you:
* Make sure you know the Person.
You can tell anyone who you know and whom you think might benefit from our service about ClearFit.com and the ClearFit Program. This includes friends, family, business and other acquaintances. In addition you should feel free to talk to anyone who asks you for information about ClearFit.com or the ClearFit Program.
Email is the fastest and easiest way to tell your friends, family, business and other acquaintances about ClearFit.com and the ClearFit Program, however, you can also use old-fashioned word-of mouth to tell your friends about us. When you visit the ClearFit Referral Center, you will be able to select a referral e-mail that you can personalize or forward as is to interested parties. In the e-mail, we include your User Name, identifying you as the referring party. When your friend enters your User Name when they sign up, you are automatically eligible for a referral bonus whenever they are hired successfully by a ClearFit company.
Please use the ClearFit Referral Program responsibly. We strictly enforce our Anti Spam Policy!
