Privacy Policy

 

Introduction:

Thank you for visiting upotential.org and, if applicable, signing up for our service. This Privacy Policy is written to better explain how we collect and use your information. It also addresses the expectation of our Community Members and Applicants.  This Privacy Policy is a binding contract and you must agree to in order to use our services. By accessing or using any of our services, you signify your consent to this Privacy Policy.  This Privacy Policy constitutes a binding and enforceable legal contract between Untapped Potential Inc. (UP) and you - so please read it carefully.

If you use our services, you do so knowingly. 

 

Community Members:

As a Community Member of UP, we support you in a wide range of connections and activities to support launching and landing in your second stage

career.  Through UP Community Events, you will meet UP Contacts, Clients or UP Pledging Partners  UP will represent your interest with UP Contacts, Clients and Pledging Partners in negotiating a role with a placement fee. Those Contacts curated and educated by UP are in support of our social mission to impact gender equity, diversity and work-life balance by working with UP. By participation in Untapped Potential's Speed Interview Event, you agree to the terms note in our Privacy Policy. If a transactional engagement, whether contractual or employee/employer type, results with these curated clients (not otherwise connected by you prior), such transaction will be facilitated through Untapped Potential Inc. This is such that our offerings are sustainable.  

 

Through the community, we also encourage and support you in a networking plan where you are seeking contacts, interviews and networks elsewhere such that you are successful in finding the right fit for you. We encourage you to define, develop and negotiate those opportunities independently. 

Regarding the Application:

When you submit for a Flexreturn Application, we are actively presenting your information to UP Contacts, Clients and Pledging Parters.  For those Contacts, UP will represent your interest in negotiating a role . Those Contacts, curated and educated by UP, are in support of our social mission to impact gender equity, diversity and workalike balance by working with UP.  As with our community members, we also encourage and support you in a networking plan where you are seeking contacts, interviews and networks elsewhere such that you are successful in finding the right fit for you. We encourage you to define, develop and negotiate those opportunities independently.  Please see our Nominal Agreement (link) which pays a Stipend to defray your costs of participating in UP's short duration engagement offering you a stepping stone to the workplace that yields Contacts, Currency and Confidence. Note that the engagement may vary in duration or level of effort based on Client/Candidate needs and the Stipend is prorated accordingly. In the case where a Direct Hire to the Client is a fit for both Client and Candidate then UP is remunerated by the Client for that Placement Service on your behalf.  In the case where UP connects you to a Client  such a role and such remuneration is not feasible, UP will pre-negotiate a remuneration-in-arrears with you. This remuneration may be in-kind or monetary. There is no obligation on your behalf to take the role.
