WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION IS COLLECTED AT OUR WEB SITE AND HOW IS IT USED?
1. Information Collected Through This Website
In order to better provide you with our numerous services, we collect two types of information about our users: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-personally Identifiable Information. Our primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience while using our site.
"Personally Identifiable Information": This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. When you engage in certain activities on this website, Personally Identifiable Information includes, personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including zip code), email address, employer, job title and department, telephone and facsimile numbers, and any information you disclose in conjunction with your resume submission or job posting, including educational background, employment history, professional experience, professional goals, interests and other information, as well as description information (like hobbies, preferences and aptitudes). We collect personal information directly from you to do all the things typically associated with e-commerce websites in order to facilitate the provision of services to you, as requested, and from your resume or job posting.
“Non-personally Identifiable Information”: This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. We gather certain information about you based upon where you visit on our site in several ways, as more particularly described herein. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the website’s Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web. An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks like the Web use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web, allowing web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet.
This information is collected at various places: for instance, when you register an account on the website; submit a resume; conduct searches for job openings; subscribe to email offers; participate in surveys; or browsing through contents of the website. We may combine all of this with information about you that we acquire from our joint marketing partners and from other unrelated third parties.
We also collect information about those you know—when you provide it to us. For example, we collect information relating to contacts for whom you send, forward or receive a job posting from our website.
We use the information we collect to personalize your online experience at our website: process your submissions and applications; communicate with you about our services, job opportunities and candidates for job postings; improve our services; analyze trends and statistics; protect the security or integrity of our website and our business; personalize your online experience with content and opportunities that are tailored to your interests; notify you regarding surveys and contests; enable you to post information on our website; or enable you to interact with third-party content service providers whether by linking to their sites, viewing their content within our web environment, or by viewing our content on third party web environment.
