Collection of Your Information
Information may be collected in two ways by websites: anonymous information and personally identifiable information.
- Anonymous Information is used by websites for administration purposes. It is aggregate data that may include your browser type or your Internet Protocol (IP) address. Our Site uses “cookies”, which is a standard procedure on the Internet, to tailor your visits to our Site to your individual preferences which is a time-saving feature for you. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can change your browser to prevent cookies or to notify you whenever you are sent a cookie. If you choose to decline a cookie, you can still access most of the features on our Site.
- Personally Identifiable Information is any information that personally identifies you, such as your name, email address or your telephone number. This personal information may be needed, for example, when you submit a resume or upon contacting us. You may be asked in certain areas of our site to voluntarily supply such items as your name, address, or Email address when you supply comments, suggestions or questions.
Use of Your Information
We collect and use information to operate our Site and assist in improving the quality of our Site. Non-personal and aggregate data may be shared with trusted partners to help us in maintaining and managing information. Any information that is shared in this manner will not contain any Personally Identifiable Information. However, Personally Identifiable Information may be used for site administration and for communications with you. We do not sell, rent or lease any sensitive personal information without your consent. From time to time, we may contract with other parties to assist with the maintenance of information. In those instances, such parties are informed that they are not to retain, store, share or use Personally Identifiable Information for any purpose other than our intended purpose. In the event that we are required to do so by law or if we believe in good faith that such action is necessary, we may also disclose, without notice, Personally Identifiable Information to (a) comply with the law or legal process; (b) protect and defend our rights and property; (c) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our Site; and (d) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety or property of our users or the public.
An IP address is a unique string of numbers that is assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our Site, avoid hacking attacks on the Site’s server, and may use it to gather broad demographic, geographic, and industry information. We do not link IP addresses to any personally identifiable information, even if such information is voluntarily provided by a user.
Our Site incorporates safeguards to protect the security of the information which we collect. We have instituted reasonable precautions to protect information from loss, misuse and alteration, including Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and database encryption. We are concerned about the security of information communicated to us; however, we realize that no security provider can guarantee that transmitted data is 100% secure. As with all other non-encrypted Internet communications, your email may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users without your knowledge and permission while in transit. Therefore, we request that you do not use your email to transmit to us information that you consider confidential. While it is our intent to protect your personal information, we are unable to guarantee the security of any information you may transmit to us or through our Site. Once received, we will use reasonable efforts to maintain the security of your transmitted data on our internal systems.
