On-line privacy concerns focus primarily on the protection of “customer identifiable” information which an individual or other customer reasonably expects to be kept private. As the term suggests, “customer identifiable” information is information that, when associated with an individual identifies that individual, for example, a customer’s name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address.
Collection and Use: the Company will collect and use customer identifiable information for billing purposes, to provide and change service, to anticipate and resolve problems with the User’s service, or to create and inform the User of products, services, and relevant job postings that better meet the User’s needs. This means that the Company may use the User’s customer identifiable information, in conjunction with information available from other sources, to market new services to the User that we think will be of interest to the User. The Company may share the User’s information among each of the Sites in order to advertise opportunities across a wider platform.
The User may opt out of receiving information regarding products, services and relevant job postings at any time. After opting out, the User will no longer receive information from the Company.
When the User accesses the Internet, the computers that host web sites the User visits (“web servers”) automatically receive some anonymous information. This “usage data” may include a record of which pages a web browser has visited. The Company’s servers receive usage data when the User visits the Sites, and when the User visits other sites as well. The Company may use usage data to provide advertising about goods and services that may be of interest to the User, or to provide customized features and services. The Company will not use information about the User’s activities on the Internet together with any information that identifies the User without the User’s consent.
Cross-postings: As a User of the Sites, the User needs to be aware of and agree to the User’s postings on any of the Sites being cross-posted on any other affiliate or subsidiary website of the Sites.
Improper Conduct: the Company may also use customer identifiable information to investigate and help prevent potentially unlawful activity or activity that threatens the network or otherwise violates the customer agreement for that service.
Account Information: the Company honors requests from customers to review all customer identifiable information maintained in reasonably retrievable form, which currently consists of the User’s name, address, e-mail address, telephone number and/or billing information (if applicable), and will correct any such information which may be inaccurate. Customers may verify that appropriate corrections have been made.
