Information You Volunteer. We collect the personal information you knowingly and voluntarily provide when you use the Site, for example, the information you provide when you register to use the Site, post any comment on the Site, or when you submit any feedback on the Site. We collect the following information when you register and set up an account on the Site or contact us by email or other means for any reason:
Information Sent to Us by Your Web Browser. We may collect information that is sent to us by your web browser, such as your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, operating system, browser type, domain name, access times, and referring website address. The information we receive depends on the settings on your web browser. The information provided by your browser does not identify you personally. We use this non-personal information primarily to create statistics that help us improve the Site and our business. We may also share some of this information with other users of the Site, such as employers who are our actual or potential customers. In addition, we may review our server logs for security purposes, such as detecting intrusions into our network. If we suspect criminal activity, we reserve the right to share our server logs -- which contain visitors’ IP addresses -- with the appropriate investigative authorities who could use that information to trace and identify individuals.
Information Collected Using “Cookies” and Other Web Technologies. Like many commercial sites, we use “cookies,” pixel tags, and similar technologies to collect information and manage the Site. Pixel tags are very small images or small pieces of data embedded in images, also known as "web beacons" or "clear GIFs,” that can recognize cookies, the time and date a page is viewed, a description of the page where the pixel tag is placed, and similar information from your computer or device. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web server. Cookies cannot be used to install computer programs or deliver viruses to your computer. We may use two types of cookies -- “session cookies” and “persistent cookies.”
A “session cookie” assigns a randomly-generated, unique identification number to your computer when you access the Site or advertisements hosted by us on third party websites. A session cookie expires after you close your browser. Generally, we use session cookies to collect information about the ways visitors use the Site. This information is known as “click-stream information.” Session cookies may also be used to facilitate your interactions with the Site.
A “persistent cookie” does not expire when you close your browser. A persistent cookie will stay on your computer until it expires or you delete it. Each time you visit the Site, our web server will recognize you by “searching” the information contained in these cookies. By assigning your computer a persistent, unique identifier, we are able to create a database of your previous choices and preferences. This permits us to offer you a personalized experience when you use the Site, as well as to enable potential employers to identify suitable job seekers, or for other purposes connected with our business. Assigning your computer a persistent, unique identifier also helps us keep a more accurate account of how many people visit the Site, how often they return, how their use of the Site may vary over time, and the effectiveness of our promotional efforts.
If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer. You may also delete our cookies as soon as you leave the Site. Although you are not required to accept our cookies when you visit the Site, if you set your browser to reject cookies, you may not be able to use all of the features and functionality of the Site.
We may also collect information regarding visits to advertisements or other content that we host on behalf of our clients, which may appear on third party websites. This information may include the number of times an advertisement was viewed, how long the advertisement was viewed, the time of day, and the IP address of the computer that viewed the advertisement (collectively, “Advertising Data”).
Under California Civil Code Section 1798.83 (the “Shine the Light” law), California residents who provide personal information in obtaining products or services for personal, family or household use are entitled to request and obtain from us once per calendar year certain disclosures about the personal information we shared, if any, with other businesses for their own direct marketing uses. If applicable, this information would include the categories of personal information, and the names and addresses of those businesses with which we shared personal information, for the immediately prior calendar year (e.g. requests made in 2016 will receive information regarding 2015 sharing activities). To make such a request, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject line of “Request for California Privacy Information.” Please be aware that not all information sharing is covered by the “Shine the Light” requirements and only information on covered sharing will be included in our response.
In some cases, third parties may be able to collect information about a user’s online activities over time and across different websites when he or she uses our Site or services. Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to the websites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. Because there currently is no industry standard concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals, we currently do not take action in response to these signals.
We respect your right to make choices about the ways we collect, use and disclose your personal information. You may update or modify your information or change your privacy preferences (such as whether you wish to receive promotional offers) at any time by emailing us at email@example.com.
If you wish to have your name removed from any of our mailing or subscription lists, please write to us at our above address or click the “remove subscription” link set forth in the relevant communication (typically provided at the end of such communication). In the event that you contact us with this request, all reasonable efforts will be taken to ensure that you will not receive any further communications from which you have opted-out in the future.
If the e-mail address you provide to us is a wireless e-mail address, you agree to receive messages from us at such address unless and until you tell us not to send messages to that address, by following the instructions in the “Modifying Your Information; Opt-Out Clause” section above. Your wireless carrier’s standard rates will apply as long as you are receiving messages at a wireless e-mail address. If you give us a wireless e-mail address, you represent that you are the owner or authorized user of the device on which messages will be received and that you are authorized to approve the applicable charges.
We have endeavored to put into place reasonable security measures in an effort to protect your personal information while it is under our control. When you send information to us during the registration process or access your account information, we will use a secure server with Secure Socket Layer encryption software that makes unauthorized access more difficult. In addition, your account information is accessible online only through the use of a password. Please be aware, however, that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. Due to the open nature of the Internet, We cannot guarantee that any of your information stored on our servers, or transmitted to or from a us or a user, will be 100% free from unauthorized access, and we disclaim any liability for any theft or loss of, unauthorized access or damage to, or interception of any data or communications. By using the Site, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks.
If you correspond with us by e-mail, or using the “contact us” feature on the Site, you should be aware that your transmission might not be secure. We will have no liability for disclosure of your information due to errors or unauthorized acts of third parties during or after transmission.
If we believe that the security of your information may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we will endeavor to notify you as promptly as possible by e-mail. You consent to our use of your e-mail address as a means of such notification. To protect the confidentiality of personal information, you must keep your password confidential and not disclose it to any other person. You are responsible for all uses of the Site by any person using your password, whether or not you authorized such activity. Please notify us of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security. If you have any questions about our security practices, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You must be at least thirteen (13) years old and a registered user to post to the Site. If you are over thirteen (13) years old but have not yet reached the age of majority, you must have your parent or guardian’s permission to post to the Site.
We do not knowingly collect, use, or disclose personal information from children under the age of 13. We do not authorize individuals who are under the age of 13 to use the Site, nor do we in any way direct our Site to those under 13 years of age. If we are made aware we have collected personal information from a child under 13 years old in a manner that is inconsistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, we will delete this information as soon as possible.
