By using our Site or our Services, you agree to allow us to share the Personal Information you provide to us in the ways described below.
With All Site Visitors and Registered Users
If you are a Service Provider, in order to increase your chances of finding a job, we share with Site Visitors and Registered Users the information that is included in your job posting, aside from your contact information, as well as the following registration information, which we may include in your job posting: your first name, first initial of your last name, place of birth, nationality, profile picture, your gender, your age and etc. With certain exceptions, you choose how much detail you want to include in either your job posting; the more information you share, however, the better chance you have of finding a job. We may also share on your job posting you have posted on our Site on our Facebook page.
With other Registered Users and corporate providers
In addition to the information that is provided to all visitors to Universal.sg, Service Provider reviews and references are made available to certain Registered Users. If you are a Service Provider, your phone number will be visible to certain Registered Users if you elect to share it in your profile.
If you are a Employer or a Service Provider, you will appear in search result listings if you match the search criteria used by a Service Provider or Employer, as applicable. Similarly, you may appear in emails sent to Service Providers or Employers in your area. Employers may opt-out of being included in Service Provider search results and in certain emails sent to Service Providers. In addition, if you are an Employer and you view the profile of certain Service Providers, those Service Providers will be able to see that you have viewed their profiles unless you opt-out of that information sharing by dropping us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you connect to Universal.sg through Facebook, we may allow any of your Facebook friends who have connected to Universal.sg through Facebook to see that you are a Registered User. In addition, other Registered Users who have connected to Universal.sg through Facebook will be able to see if you are friends with any of their Facebook friends or if you share certain affinities or interests with them.
If we terminate your registration for any reason, we reserve the right to send a notice of your termination to other Registered Users with whom we believe you have corresponded.

We also share Personal Information with vendors who perform services on behalf of Universal.sg, including without limitation vendors who provide email services, demographic information, or geo-location information, vendors who perform background checks or verification checks, vendors who process credit card payments, vendors who run classified advertising businesses, and vendors who send SMS messages to Registered Users' mobile phone numbers, in each case to the extent applicable. Universal.sg has selected vendors who maintain high standards with respect to privacy and agree to use the Personal Information only to perform specific services on behalf of Universal.sg.
With listings in Google and other public search engines
In an effort to further facilitate the ability for Employers or Service Providers to find a caregiver or job, selected information contained in Employer job postings and Service Provider profiles, which may include photo, first name, first initial of last name, city, state, and job/provider description, may also be shared with third party search engines and other vendors who run classified advertising businesses, and thus may be listed in third party web site search results (e.g., Google), which would make that information available to the public and allow them to link to your Universal.sg posting.
