Registered Users may elect to store an unlimited amount of CVs’s in their ‘CV List’ area, and use those CVs when applying for a job. Deleting a resume from the 'CV List' area will mean it is no longer accessible to the Registered User. Deleted records may still be stored by CV4U in testing or backup systems for a period of time.
