How do I control access to my resume and my personal information?

This article tells you how to get total control over your privacy settings and access to your resume

Before you start

Most recruiters get to DoYouBuzz through Google, therefore if you reduce your visibility, you also reduce the chance to be contacted by one.

If you don't want to be indexed that's your choice, but you might also consider hidding only what really matters to your privacy, such as your contacts details which can be done by using the contact form.

Where can you get access to those parameters ?

In order to change your visibility settings, go to your resume, then :

Publish my resume on the web

If you set this up on "OFF", anybody trying to access your CV will see an error message :

After some time, if your CV was indexed, Google will unindex it. If you can't wait, you need to send a removal request to Google.

Get a password protected CV

This option gives you the opportunity to restrict the access to your CV to people who know the password that you set up.

Please note that a password protected CV won't be indexed by search engines.

Index your CV on search engines

If you set this on "ON", DoYouBuzz will let Google and other search engines index your CV. Once your are indexed, it might take a while to get unindexed.

If you set this on "OFF", DoYouBuzz will tell search engines not to index your CV (but visitors who know the URL will still have access). Please note that once your CV is indexed it will take some time before Google unindex it. If you can't wait, you need to send a removal request to Google.
