  1. We may disclose such information to third parties if you consent to such disclosure. For example, if you indicate that you would like to receive information about the products or services of third parties at the time you register for a Personal OrangeCoach Account (Keep me informed about OrangeCoach news), we may supply your contact information to third parties such as employers, recruiters, data aggregators, marketers or others for the purpose of sending you e-mail or otherwise communicating with you. We may use data we have about you (such as the interests and preferences you have expressed) to determine whether you might be interested in the products or services of a particular third-party.
  2. We may disclose such information to companies and individuals we employ to perform functions on our behalf. Examples may include hosting our Web servers, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. These companies and individuals will have access to your personal information as necessary to perform their functions, but they may not share that information with any other third party.
  3. We may disclose such information if legally required to do so, if requested to do so by a governmental entity, or if we believe in good faith that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process; (b) protect the rights or property of OrangeCoach; (c) prevent a crime or protect national security; or (d) protect the personal safety of users or the public.

OrangeCoach and its affiliates supply technology, hosting and related services to other leading companies to power recruitment areas on their websites (sometimes referred to as “sport career site hosting recruitment areas”). Personal and/or demographic information supplied by you in a career site hosting recruitment area becomes part of the OrangeCoach database, but it is not accessible by anyone other than you, OrangeCoach and the company concerned without your consent.

Information gathered on a page in a career site hosting recruitment area, or on a co-branded page (such as that of a contest co-sponsored by OrangeCoach and another company), may become the property of the other company or of both OrangeCoach and the other company. In that instance, the use of such information by the other company may be subject to the privacy policy of that company and, in any event, OrangeCoach is not responsible for that company’s use of your personal or demographic information.

Since OrangeCoach is a career site, we give you the option of putting your resume in our database. There are two ways of doing this:

  1. Store your resume in our database and allow your resume to be searchable (for coaching opportunities and/or other business opportunities).
  2. Store your resume in our database and not allow it to be searchable.

We attempt to limit access to our searchable resume database (or copies thereof) only to paying employers, sport recruiters, hiring managers, head hunters, and human resource professionals, as well as law enforcement and national security agencies, but cannot guarantee that other parties will not gain access to this database. We are not responsible for the use made of resumes by third parties who access such resumes while they are in our searchable database. You may remove your resume from our database at any time. However, employers, recruiters and others who have paid for access to that database or to obtain a copy of that database, as well as parties who have otherwise gained access to the database, may have retained a copy of your resume in their own files or databases. We are not responsible for the retention, use or privacy of resumes in these instances.
