Automatic Collection of Information

As you navigate this Site and use the Services, certain limited information can and may be collected automatically from you without your active involvement, using methods known as cookies and navigational data collection. Some of the information (e.g., type of web browser) does not identify who you are. Other information, such as your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, may identify you indirectly, when supplemented with other commercially available sources of information.

When you visit this Site, we send to your computer one or more cookies, which are small text files containing a string of characters. These cookies uniquely identify your computer to the Site, but do not facilitate the gathering of personal information.  We may use cookies to improve the quality of our service by storing user preferences and tracking user trends. Most web browsers are set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.  However, some features of this Site and the Services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. 

Furthermore, our computer servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. These server logs may include information, such as the portions of the Site accessed, the IP address assigned to your computer, the type of browser used by your computer, the date and time of your access to the Site, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your computer.

Collection, Disclosure, Use and Retention of Information
Except as otherwise stated at the point of collection, we may use your information for improving the content of the Site and the Services, customizing this Site and the Services to your preferences, communicating information to you and subsequently updating such information, internal marketing and research purposes, and as further specified in this Privacy Policy.  We may combine such information with other passively or actively collected information unless we specify otherwise at the point of collection.
The Company may transfer your information, including personally identifiable information, to third parties, including contractors we use to support our business (e.g., marketing services, product retailers, technical support, and financial institutions), in which case we will require such third parties to agree to treat your information in accordance with this Privacy Policy or as you may otherwise have previously consented.  We do not share your personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless you have affirmatively agreed in advance to such a disclosure.
The Company also may transfer such information (i) in connection with the sale, assignment or other transfer of the business function of the Company to which the information relates, in which case we will request any such buyer, assignee or transferee to agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy; (ii) to protect the rights, property or safety of the Company, its employees or visitors to this Site and Users of the Services; or (iii) in compliance with subpoenas or other valid court orders, in response to inquiries and requests from regulatory authorities, in connection with the prevention or detection of fraud, or as otherwise permitted or required by law.  In addition, we will make full use of all information acquired through this Site and the Services or otherwise that is not identifiable to you.

Collection, Disclosure, Use and Retention of Employee Data

This Site also may collect personal information from prospective employees for human resources purposes. The Company furthermore may collect personal information for human resources purposes from current, prospective and past employees through internal sources that are unrelated to this Site.  All such information, regardless of the source, is collectively referred to in this Privacy Policy as “Employee Data.”  Employee Data may be collected, disclosed and used to: 
           

  • Design, evaluate, implement and provide human resources programs and services to fulfill employment arrangements, agreements and otherwise administer employment arrangements, which include but are not limited to staffing, compensation and payroll, benefits, employee education, employee diversity, organizational development.
  • Support employee performance and development assessment programs.

 

  • Fulfill legal, contractual and compliance-related commitments, such as subpoenas, garnishments, investigations and compliance with lawful requests for information from government agencies.
  • Supply our external service providers and business partners with information so that they can administer programs on our behalf, such as any health and welfare, savings plans, pension plans, stock plans, performance incentives, stock awards, life insurance, employment verification, unions and bank direct deposits.

 

  • Supply internal service providers, such as our legal, medical, security, corporate electronic directory and information systems management, among others, with information so they can manage their processes and programs.

The Company will not use Employee Data for any other purposes and will not disclose it to any person except for these stated purposes, unless authorized or permitted by applicable law.

Choices for Disclosure and Use of Personal Information
You may choose to prevent the Company from disclosing or using your personal information under certain circumstances (“opt out”). You may opt out of any disclosure or use of your personal information for purposes that are incompatible with the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected or for which you subsequently gave authorization. Furthermore, even where your personal information is to be disclosed and used in accordance with the stated purposes in this Privacy Policy, you may elect to opt out of such disclosure to and use by a third party that is not acting as an agent of the Company. On the other hand, the Company may disclose your personal information to a third party acting as its agent where this third party agrees in writing to provide at least the same level of privacy protection as is required by this Privacy Policy.  Opting out of the disclosure and use of your personal information may prevent you from being hired or retained as an employee by the Company or participating in certain employee programs.

Access and Correction

To access your personal information in the possession of the Company and correct inaccuracies of that information in our records, please contact us in the manner specified in the “How to Contact Us” section below. We ask individuals to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed and amended before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests in limited circumstances as permitted by applicable privacy legislation.

Security

The Company takes reasonable measures to safeguard your personal information against unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification, whether or not in electronic format. We use industry-standard technological precautions, such as Secure Socket Layer technology in an effort to protect your personal information as you transmit it electronically from your computer to this Site and, furthermore, to protect it from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. Furthermore, the Company requires that employees and third-party administrators/processors access your personal information only on a “need-to-know” basis.
You should keep in mind that no combination of security measures can ever provide guaranteed protection all the time. We caution you that e-mail may be particularly vulnerable to unauthorized interception, eavesdropping, modification and spoofing, and, therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail.  Moreover, where you use passwords, ID numbers or other special access features on this Site or the Services, it is your responsibility to safeguard them.
