Types of Information We Collect and How We Collect It
The majority of information posted on our Website is offered without our collecting any personally identifiable information from you. You can browse the Website and view much of our content anonymously.
What personal information do we collect from the people that visit our Website?
There are a few activities on our Website where the collection of personally identifiable information is necessary. Those activities include things like submitting a job application, submitting an inquiry form, or otherwise contacting us through our Website. When we collect personally identifiable information, you will know because you will have to affirmatively enter and provide that information to us. If you submit a job application or an inquiry to us, you will be asked to provide personally identifiable information such as your name and email address, and a resume (which could contain personally identifiable information such as your mailing address, ZIP code, date of birth, email address, telephone number).
Information Collected from You with Technology
Our Website collects some information about you using technology, so it may not be readily apparent to you that it is being collected. For instance, when you visit our Website, we automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information from your browser, such as your internet service provider address, the web page from which you came, and a record of your activity on our Website. We may also collect information about the device from which you are accessing our Website, including the device’s operating system. This information is not personally identifiable. Our Website uses this information collected through technology to make our Website more useful, and to help us maintain and improve the usability of the Website for our users.
When do we collect information?
We collect information from you when you fill out a form or enter information on our Website. How do we use your information?
We may use the information we collect from you in the following ways:
- To evaluate you for possible employment with us, and to contact you regarding employment.
- To allow us to better service you in responding to your customer service requests.
- To send periodic emails regarding your use or possible use of our products and services.
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information, primarily consisting of physical and technologic controls. Only persons who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, human resources) are granted access to personally identifiable information. There are some things that you can do to help protect the security of your information as well. For instance, remember to close your browser window when you finish surfing the web so that other people using the same computer will not have access to your information. Use caution when using public Wi-Fi, which can make your personal information available to others if not properly secured.
Do we use “cookies”?
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser’s Help menu to learn the correct way to modify or disable your cookies.
If you disable cookies, some features of our Website will be disabled, and some of our services may not function properly.
Third Party Disclosure
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information unless we provide you with advance notice. We may provide your personally identifiable information to our parent company, other companies that our parent owns, Website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our Website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety. Non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses without notice to you.
Third party links
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our Website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.
COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of Websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online. We do not specifically market our Website to children under 13, as job applicants must be 18 or older.
Sale of Business
Over the course of our operation, it is possible that at some point we may sell some, all or certain portions of our businesses or assets to other companies. When such an event occurs, visitor information (including personally identifiable information) may constitute a part of the transferred business assets. In the event that we sell substantially all of our assets to another company, visitor information (including personally identifiable information) likely will be considered an asset that will be transferred to the acquiring company.
We last updated this Policy on September 7 , 2016 and the Policy is therefore effective as of that date. We may change the Policy without notice to you, so we recommend that you review this Policy on a regular basis.
If there are any questions regarding this Policy you may contact us using the information below, or submit your question through the “inquiry” form located on the Website.
