How We Collect Information.
We receive and store information you give us (either through the Site or in some other way). You may choose, as part of the services available on the Site (the “Services” ) Service, to enter Personal Information, including your name, street address, email address, and phone number. When you create your match profile on the Site, we collect categories of information relevant to your profile, including your contact information, information about your experience, education, desired salary, and travel limitations. When you submit a CV to us, we collect whatever information you include in your CV. We do all of this to help us in our effort to help you, find the right job.
We currently contract with several online partners to help manage and optimize our Internet business and communications. We use the services of a marketing company to help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising and how visitors use our Site. To do this, we use web beacons, clear GIFs and cookies provided by our marketing company on this Site. The information we collect helps us learn things like what kinds of customers our Site attracts, which of our products most interest our customers, and what kinds of offers our customers like to see. Although our marketing company logs the information coming from our Site on our behalf, we control how that data may and may not be used.
An “Internet protocol address” or “IP address” is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet access provider when you use the Internet. In some cases your IP address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer internet access provider, your IP address probably varies from session to session. We track IP addresses solely in conjunction with session cookies to analyze our web page flow.
“Cookies” are small pieces of information that a web site sends to your computer's hard drive while you are viewing a web site. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them). Persistent Cookies can be removed by following Internet browser help file directions.
