Information We Obtain

We obtain personal information about you in various ways, such as when you visit our website (the “Service”). We also may obtain personal information about you offline, such as when you call, email, mail or fax us. The types of personal information we may obtain include:

  • Contact information, such as name, title, company, telephone number and postal and email address;
  • Payment information, including name, billing and delivery address, and payment card details;
  • Professional or employment-related information you submit in connection with a job opportunity; and
  • Other information you choose to provide, such as through emails or other communications, surveys, registrations and sign-up forms.

Where we need to collect personal information by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you choose not to provide that information when requested, we may not be able to provide you with our Service.

Information We Obtain by Automated Means

When you use our Service or open our emails, we may obtain certain information by automated means, such as cookies, pixel tags, server or device logs and other technologies. A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A “pixel tag” (also known as a web beacon), which is a type of technology that is often used in combination with cookies, is placed on a website or within an email to track certain activity, such as views of a website or when an email is opened. These technologies help us (1) remember your information so you do not have to re-enter it; (2) track and understand how you use and interact with the Service; (3) tailor the Service around your preferences; (4) measure the usability of the Service and the effectiveness of our communications; (5) authenticate your identity, protect against fraud and provide our products and services; and (6) otherwise manage and enhance our products and services, and help ensure they are working properly.

We may use these automated technologies on the Service to collect information about your device, browsing actions, and usage patterns. We obtain information about your device and web browser in this manner such as your device IP address, general location information, unique device identifiers, device type and model, device characteristics and settings, browser settings and characteristics, operating system type and version, time zone setting and location, language and country preferences, battery and signal strength, usage statistics, referring emails and web addresses, and other application details. We also may obtain information about your interactions with our Service, such as pages visited (including the webpages you visited before interacting with our Service), links clicked, features used, dates and times of usage, session information, and other information about your use of our Service.

Your browser may tell you how to be notified about certain types of automated collection technologies and how to restrict or disable them. Please note, however, that without these technologies, you may not be able to use all of the features of the Service. For mobile devices, you can manage how your device and browser share certain device data by adjusting the privacy and security settings on your mobile device.

Our Service is not designed to respond to “do not track” signals from browsers.

We also may share the information we obtain about you with third-party vendors and other entities to perform services on our behalf, such as consultants, auditors, attorneys, technology and communications providers, and others. We may share your personal information with social media platforms if you use those services to connect with us.

We may disclose personal information (1) if we are required to do so by law or legal process, such as a court order or subpoena; (2) in response to requests by government agencies, such as law enforcement authorities; (3) to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights; (4) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical or other harm or financial loss; (5) in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity; (6) where you apply for a job, with your references who you have provided to us in connection with your application; or (7) otherwise with your consent or as directed by your representative.

How We Protect Personal Information

We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect personal information against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized access, destruction, loss, alteration, disclosure or use.

Data Retention

To the extent required by applicable law, we keep the personal information we obtain about you for the period necessary to achieve the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, taking into account applicable statute of limitations periods and any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other records retention requirements. We may retain your personal information for a longer period in the event of a complaint or in reasonable anticipation of litigation.

Data Transfers

We may transfer the personal information we collect about you to recipients in countries other than the country in which information was originally collected. Those countries may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the personal information. When we transfer your personal information to recipients in other countries, we will protect that personal information as described in this Privacy Policy.

We are headquartered in the United States and your personal information will be transferred to or accessed by us in the United States for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. Where we transfer your personal information to the United States, or any other jurisdiction that has not been deemed to provide an adequate level of data protection, we will comply with applicable legal requirements regarding the provision of appropriate safeguards for the transfer of personal information to such jurisdictions. These safeguards include entering into EU approved Standard Contractual Clauses and/or the UK Data Transfer Addendum (as applicable) or relying on other appropriate transfer mechanisms permitted by applicable laws.

You may ask for a copy of these safeguards by contacting us using the contact details provided below.

Children’s Privacy

The Service is designed for a general audience and are not directed to children. In connection with the Service, we do not knowingly solicit or collect personal information from children under the age of 13 without parental consent. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without parental consent, we will either seek parental consent or promptly delete that information. If you believe that a child under age 13 may have provided us with personal information without parental consent, please contact us as specified in the How To Contact Us section of this Privacy Policy.
