Privacy Policy & Terms of Use

This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) identifies the privacy practices and terms of use for this website (the “Site”) that apply to all visitors (“Users”), including how we will collect, use, share, and protect information about you, as well as the choices you may make about how we use this information. The Site and all of its content (including copyrighted text and imagery, as well as data obtained) is owned and operated by University of Maryland Medical System (known hereafter as “UMMS”).

Please read the Policy carefully before providing any information. By accessing the Site or providing any information, you agree to our use of that information consistent with the Policy. If you have questions about this policy, contact our HR Connections Service Center at 1-855-486-6747.

How The Site Works

The Site provides Users with access to job offering information based on criteria selected by the User from the referring website or other source. The primary purpose of the Site is to inform Users of employment opportunities offered by UMMS’s clients. User information is collected and shared with UMMS’s clients and trusted third-party affiliates.

Information That We Collect

We collect the following information about Users in various ways, including:

  • Name, address, phone number, email address, employment background, and other demographic information when you register for an account via the interest form on the homepage.
  • Make your next visit to the Site more personalized;
  • Process or complete transactions requested by you;
  • Contact you regarding administrative issues, such as questions about your specific request;
  • Email information regarding jobs and other offers to you;
  • Make telephone calls to you with information and offers;
  • Provide your information to affiliates or third-party service providers to fulfill services you have requested;
  • Compile anonymous statistical information and analyses, and provide that anonymous information to third parties; and
  • Provide, sell, or rent your personally identifiable information to third parties for advertising purposes.

Information Collected Automatically

When you visit our Site or open one of our emails, we may automatically collect information about you using tracking technology, including your Internet Protocol address (“IP Address”), a unique device or user ID, system and browser type, the referring address website, the content and pages that you access on the Site or mobile application, and the dates and times that you visit the Site. We use technology, including cookies (a piece of data that is placed on your computer when you visit a website), web beacons, and other similar technology to automatically collect certain information, as described above, that we then use for system administration, troubleshooting, and to identify you when you open our email or visit our Site through your computer or mobile device so we can enhance your online experience and make our advertising more relevant. Further, we may offer certain features that are only available through the use of this technology.

UMMS may use third-party software to serve ads on the Site, implement email marketing campaigns, and manage other interactive marketing initiatives. Further, UMMS may contract with third parties to serve ads on third-party websites in order to optimize advertising campaigns. This third-party software may use cookies, web beacons, or similar technology to help manage and optimize your online experience with us.

You can set your browser to accept or reject cookies and to disable other tracking technology. The third-party sites may also provide additional opt-out methods.

Our privacy statement does not cover the use of cookies by others including our partners, affiliates, tracking utility company and service providers. We do not have access or control over these cookies. We also may collect information from third-party websites with whom we connect.

Data from Other Sources

We may also obtain information about you from other sources, including affiliates, data aggregators, and public databases. All of the information we collect may be combined to create a more detailed picture of you, which allows us to better understand the products and services you might be interested in.

Other Sites

If you arrive at the Site by “clicking through” from another website, and you have registered with that other website, then certain information about you that you provided to that other website, such as the terms you were searching on that led you to the Site, may be transmitted to us and we may use it. You should review the privacy policy of any website from which you reached the Site in order to determine what information was collected by that website and for what purpose(s) you agreed that website could use that information. We may or may not retain information about you provided to us by other websites. If we do, we will only use it in accordance with this Policy. Such information may or may not be associated with other User activity data or personally identifiable information.

How We Use Information We Collect

We may use and share the information (whether or not personally identifiable) that you provide to us to:

Surveys or Contests

From time-to-time our Site may request personally identifiable information from Users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the User therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose personally identifiable information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code). Contact information will be shared with the contest or survey sponsors to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of the Site. Users’ personally identifiable information collected through surveys or contests is not shared with third parties who are not agents, service providers or business partners, unless we give prior notice and receive your permission for the sharing. Though we may use an intermediary to conduct these surveys or contests, these intermediaries will not use the Users’ personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

Third-party Providers

UMMS may contract with third parties to provide various services to UMMS relating to the Site on an outsourced basis. For example, we may contract with an email provider to handle the distribution of email messages to Users of the Site. We may contract with a website hosting provider to host the Site for us. We may also contract with various validation services to confirm contact information that you provide. By visiting the Site, all Users consent to UMMS providing all information (whether or not personally identifiable) received or collected from those Users to such third-party providers for the purpose of enabling the third-party provider to provide these outsourced services to us. In addition, all Users consent to the collection, maintenance, and processing of their information (whether or not personally identifiable) by UMMS and these third-party providers.

Affiliates & Partners

We will share information provided by Users (whether or not personally identifiable) with certain trusted business partners in our network so that they can contact you with information about the services in which you have expressed interest. In order to provide the services available to you on this Site, we may also supplement your information (whether or not personally identifiable) with information from third-party sources with whom we have contracted for the purpose of verifying the contact information you have provided. You have the option to not have your information shared with business partners by not requesting these services.

We may also share information about Users (whether or not personally identifiable) with our business partners and affiliated companies so that we can offer you a broader range of services and information to meet your needs. If you would prefer not to have your information shared with our business partners and affiliated companies, you may opt out by contacting our HR Connections Service Center at 1-855-486-6747

Please be aware that UMMS affiliated institutions, promotional partners, advertisers, sponsors, and other third-party web sites accessible through the Site may have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices. UMMS is not responsible for any actions, content of websites or privacy policies of such third parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing information through linked websites.

Other Uses

We may release account information and other personally identifiable information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with applicable law, to enforce our legal and contractual rights, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of UMMS, Users, or others. UMMS may in some circumstances be required to disclose information (including personally identifiable information) in response to requests from law enforcement authorities, or in response to a subpoena or other legal process. We may also turn over information about you if we believe we must do so in order to prevent a violation of the law, and by accepting this Policy, you consent to our right to do so, in our sole discretion. You also consent to our disclosing information about you in the course of legal proceedings if we believe we are legally required to do so, if we reasonably believe that doing so may mitigate our liability, or if doing so will assist us.

At some point, UMMS may establish subsidiaries or other related companies, or merge with or be acquired by another company. When that happens, then we may disclose to them your personally identifiable information, in which case we will request them to abide by this Policy. We may also disclose some personally identifiable information to a potential acquirer, although such disclosure would be subject to normal and customary confidentiality requirements.

How We Protect Your Information

UMMS works to protect your information by using appropriate technical, administrative and physical procedures to protect personal information from loss, misuse, or alteration. Access to your

personally-identifiable information is protected by password and accessible only to authorized UMMS personnel. While we use both passwords and usernames to protect information online, we also work to protect Users’ information off-line. Access to Users’ information is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personal information.

Notwithstanding our efforts, there is a possibility that Internet transmissions containing a User’s personally identifiable information may be intercepted by others. We cannot, however, ensure or guaranty the security of any information you send to us and you do so at your own risk.


The Site is not intended for children under the age of 18, and UMMS does not knowingly collect or use personally identifiable information from children under the age of 18.

Opting Out

If you do not agree to our uses of your personally identifiable information as we have described for you, you are not required to provide that information to us. Consistent with this Policy, we will send you administrative emails regarding your account activity, as well as emails containing information about our products or promotional offers. You may not opt-out of administrative emails. However, you may opt out of receiving promotional (non-administrative) emails from us simply by responding to the opt-out link provided on all email communications from UMMS. You may also contact our HR Connections Service Center at 1-855-486-6747 to request removal of your personally identifiable information from our systems.


We only telephone call and send email to users that sign up on our site or to our affiliates’ users who have consented to receive advertising offers from us. We do not contact users without this consent. If you believe you have been signed up in error, please follow the “opt out” instructions above to be removed from all future mailings.

We will also communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account. We will contact you either through email or telephone.

When it is necessary to do so, we will send you service-related announcements, primarily via email. For example, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we may send you email. Generally, you may not opt out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, please contact our HR Connections Service Center at 1-855-486-6747.

Updating and Correcting Information

You may correct and update your personally identifiable information contacting our HR Connections Service Center at 1-855-486-6747 or by sending us a letter to 920 Elkridge Landing Road, Linthicum, MD 21090. Please provide your name, address, email address, and the information that you would like us to update. You may ask to have to have information deleted or removed. However, you cannot delete information included with past transactions, and it may not be possible for us to completely delete all of your information from backup media.

Policy Changes

If we materially change this Policy, we will post the changes to this Policy and we may post a notice of the changes on the homepage of this Site, as we deem appropriate, so that you are aware of what

personally-identifiable information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We reserve the right to modify this Policy at any time, so please review the Site frequently for any changes. Amendments to this Policy will be posted on the Site and will be effective when posted. You will be deemed to have been made aware of, will be subject to, and will be deemed to have accepted, the changes to any amended or revised Policy by your continued use of our services or the Site.

Prospective Employers & Other Businesses

If you choose to contact a potential employer, any information collected from you by such a potential employer will be governed by that company’s privacy policy. We are not responsible for the policies or practices of any such employers or other partners. UMMS expressly disclaims any and all liability or responsibility whatsoever for the success or suitability of any such potential employment. Evaluating the terms of any prospective employment and the task of seeing any potential employment offer through to acceptance is solely the User’s responsibility. UMMS does not function as an agent in any way and does not represent any party in any transaction.

UMMS does not assume any responsibility or liability for the actions, product, and content of all these and any other third parties. You should carefully review their privacy statements and other conditions of use.
