In providing our Sites and Services, we collect information that, alone or in combination with other information, can be used to identify you as an individual (“Personal Information”). What Personal Information we collect and process depends on how and why you interact with us.

We also collect information automatically when you browse our Sites, some of which could be considered personal information. The information we automatically collect includes your IP address, what areas of the websites you accessed, browsed, searched for, or used, time spent on our websites and other statistical information. We also collect information about your computer, device, network, and browsing session, including your operating system, browser type, computer or mobile device type (if used), the name of your Internet Service Provider (“ISP”), the date and time of your visit, the amount of time you spend on each page, information about the links you click and pages you view within our websites, referring URL (i.e., the page from which you navigated to our websites), and other actions taken through use of our Sites and Services.

If you provide us with your Personal Information as part of our hiring or employment process, we may use it to evaluate your application, contact you, administer benefits to you, or for other employment-related purposes. If you have visited one of our online “Careers” pages, we may also use your information to send you targeted communications about job opportunities.

- With appropriate authorities if we believe disclosure is necessary to prevent physical, financial, or other harm, injury, or loss, including to protect against fraud or credit risk, if instructed or required by those authorities and applicable laws, or in relation to a legal activity (such as: in response to a subpoena or investigation of suspected illicit or illegal activities; where we believe in good faith that users may be engaged in illicit or illegal activities; or where we are bound by contract or law to enable a network partner to comply with applicable laws);
- With necessary third parties in connection with, or during negotiations for, an acquisition, merger, asset sale, or other similar business transfer that involves all or substantially all of our assets or functions where personal information is transferred or shared as part of the business assets; and

While no one can guarantee your Personal Information is completely secure at all times, we use administrative, organizational, technical, and physical safeguards to protect the Personal Information we collect and process. Our security controls are designed to maintain data confidentiality and integrity, and give us appropriate access to your data. For instance, particularly sensitive data is protected by SSL encryption when it is exchanged between your web browser and our Sites. To protect any data you store on our servers, we regularly audit our system for possible vulnerabilities and attacks and we use a tier-one secured-access data center. However, since the Internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot guarantee, ensure, or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. We strongly advise you not to communicate any confidential information through these means.
“Personal Information” includes information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonable be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household, or as otherwise define by applicable law.
You may obtain access to certain information upon request and also may update your personal information or request a deletion by contacting us at [email protected].

Occasionally information will be shared with third parties and if you make a request regarding your information that will be passed along to any needed third parties to ensure your request is complete. We do not share information that identifies you personally with non-affiliated third parties for their own marketing use without your permission.
