General Policy
This overall privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for the entire Executive Network Group of Greater Chicago, Inc. ("ENG") web site. At ENG, we respect your privacy and have taken strong steps to protect your privacy online as outlined in this document.

ENG is committed to providing you a satisfying and productive experience online. To make that possible, we gather personal information from you to help us provide a better service. Access to such personal information is never given or sold to third parties for any purpose without your approval. Only registered, current ENG members will be able to view this information while logged on to the ENG web site.

We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples may include hosting our web server, analyzing data, providing administrative assistance, and providing other services. These other companies will have access to your personal information as necessary to perform their functions, but they may not share that information with any third party.

At ENG we recognize that member profiles are very sensitive information, which is why we keep them online in the password-protected members only area. Member profiles are searchable by members, in order to facilitate networking among our members. As part of the additional value of ENG, registered recruiters/employers can also search the member directory and resumes of members who have opted in to this service, which can provide access to opportunities that members might otherwise miss. As part of such searches, registered employers/recruiters have access to resumes and profile information. We are not responsible for the use made of resumes or profiles by these third parties who access your profile or access/retain your resume while they are in our searchable database.

Effective October 2, 2004, non-members will have limited access to member profiles. The infomation available to non-registered users of the ENG website is limted to: Your name, email address, "tag line" as entered in your resume, website link and areas of expertise. If you not opted out of displaying your resume to the public on the member profile options page, your entire resume is visible to non-registered users.
