Once information is electronically entered, you are unable to change information through this Site. You will be able to provide updates in person at a Link Staffing office. When you register, we use your information for the purpose of fulfilling your job application with Link Staffing. We may share your information with third parties to process your application or to conduct a background check. We will not conduct a background check without notifying you and first obtaining your specific consent. If you chose not to provide certain information, however, then we may be unable to provide you with all of the features of our online product.

Sharing Your Information
Job Seekers: We share job seeker information, at your request and direction, with prospective employers. We also share job seeker information, after you have consented, to third parties for the purposes, as applicable, of conducting background checks and to determine whether the employer is eligible for tax credits. Once an applicant has been hired, we also may share additional information with your employer for payroll or other administrative functions.
All Personal Information (Job Seekers, Employers, and Other Site Visitors): We may hire vendor companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as payment processing, sending postal and electronic mail, providing technical support, and to assist us in providing the products and services that you request from us. We only provide those service providers with the information necessary to perform the requested service.
We also may engage in joint marketing activities with third parties. If we do so, then we give you an opportunity to opt out of such information sharing.

Link Staffing, however, reserves the right to disclose your personal information if it licenses, sells, or otherwise transfers its technology or business, or a portion thereof, to third parties, including, but not limited to, mergers, acquisitions, and bankruptcy proceedings.
We also may disclose your personal information to protect our rights and property, to prevent against fraud and abuse, and to protect other users of our services. We also may disclose your personal information as permitted or required by law.
