We provide legally required notices of collection and describe our use and sharing of the personal information of our workforce and applicants in greater detail in confidential internal human resource manuals and documents accessible to members of our workforce, or by publication on the proprietary workforce/applicant portals and apps we operate.

In those situations, the legal responsibility to provide notice usually rests with the third party.
Personal Information Collected from Vendors, Business Partners and Affiliates

By using our online and mobile resources, you are signifying to us that you agree with this section of our privacy statement and that we may use and disclose your information as described.
Voluntarily Submitted Information
If you choose to participate in or make use of certain activities and features available via our online and mobile applications, you will need to provide us with information about yourself. The types of personal information you will be submitting to us in those situations is almost always limited to basic identifiers such as your name, email address, mailing address and phone number. Here are some of the ways you voluntarily give us your personal information:
Emails–if you choose to send us an email from our ‘contact us’ link or a similar link, you will be giving us your email address and any other personal information that may be in your message or attached to it. The same is true if you send us a text message.
Creating Accounts–if we make an account creation feature available to the general public (that is, to visitors./users who are not customers or workforce members) you will be giving us at least your email address and potentially other identifiers. The same is true if you sign up to receive a newsletter or other informational or marketing material we publish.
Registering for Events–When you register for events, conferences or programs we may host (rather than outsource to a third-party event manager with its own privacy policies), you will be submitting the types of identifiers described above. If the event requires a fee, we may also ask you to submit a credit card or other financial information.
Social Media and Community Features–Some of our online and mobile resources may offer social media-like community features, letting users post messages and comments and/or upload images or other files and materials. If you choose to make use of these features, the information you post, including your name and any other information, will be in the public domain and not covered/protected by this statement.

This means you shouldn’t participate in the applicable activities or use the applicable features available from our online and mobile resources. Such participation and use are strictly your choice. By not participating, you may limit your ability to take full advantage of the online and mobile resources, but most of the content in our online and mobile resources will be available to you.
Automatically Collected Information
When you visit or use our online and mobile resources, basic information about your internet/electronic activity is automatically collected through your browser via tracking technologies, such as cookies. Cookies are small text files downloaded onto your computer or mobile device that allow us to collect your IP address and recognize your computer or mobile device and store some information about your preferences. Examples include:
- the type of browser and operating system you use.
- the date and time and length of your visit
- the pages visited, graphics viewed and any documents downloaded
- links to other sites you accessed from our online and mobile resources or used to navigate to our online and mobile resources
If you access our online and mobile resources from a phone or other mobile device, the mobile services provider may transmit to us certain information such as uniquely identifiable mobile device information. That in turn allows us to collect mobile numbers and associate them with the mobile device identification information. Some mobile phone service providers also operate systems that pinpoint that physical location of devices and we may receive this geolocation data as well.
When you use our online and mobile resources, we may allow third-party service providers to place their own cookies or similar technologies to engage in the same types of collection we describe above. For example, we use third-party web analytics services such as those offered by Google.
Sharing Your Personal Information
Finally, we may also share your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information we receive, or to otherwise protect our rights.
We do not sell your personal information to third parties (as ‘sell’ is defined in California law). A ‘sale’ would not include a situation where someone is buying all or part of our business (as is explained further below).
We share your personal information with our employees, contractors, consultants and other parties such as affiliates and third party companies that assist us in providing our services, including marketers, customer support and hosting services.
Will by Personal information leave the country?

Personal information may be accessible to governments, courts or law enforcement, national security authorities or and regulatory agencies of these countries in accordance with applicable laws.

In addition, the personal information may have been destroyed, erased or made anonymous in accordance with our record retention obligations and practices.

We may, instead of destroying or erasing your personal information, make it anonymous such that it cannot be associated with or tracked back to you.
Securing Your Personal Information
