THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND USE
Personally-Identifying Information. You do not have to disclose any personally-identifying information to use this website. The only personally-identifying information that we gather is information that you voluntarily provide to us. For example, if you submit an application for employment to us through our General Application Form, we may use your name, email address and any other personally-identifying information you provide to evaluate, and to communicate with you about, your application. We also will keep a record of your application.
Cookies and Web Beacons. To help us tailor our website to the needs and interests of our visitors, we keep track of the pages visited by our users by sending one or more cookies – a small file containing a string of characters – to our visitors’ computers or other devices. Each cookie contains an ID number that allows us to track the pages a user has visited using a particular web browser. We aggregate this data with data about the pages visited by other users to track overall visitor traffic patterns. Cookies do not reveal personally-identifying information and cannot read unrelated data on your hard drive. The “Help” function on most web browsers contains information on how to set your browser to notify you before accepting a cookie or to disable cookies entirely.
To help us count how many users are accessing particular pages within our website, and to analyze how users navigate within our site, we may also place small files called web beacons or “clear gifs” on the pages of our website. Each web beacon delivers a small graphic image (usually invisible) that is rendered by your browser along with the other content of the page on which the beacon is located. When you view a web page containing one of our beacons, our servers record certain information such as whether we have previously set a cookie on your browser, the time and date that the page is viewed, and a description of the page on which the beacon is located. The information we collect through web beacons does not identify you personally. Together with cookies, web beacons help us understand how our visitors use and navigate through our website. We use this information to improve our site by making it more responsive to the needs of our users. When you visit our website, third-party web analytics service providers that we engage may also use web beacons and cookies to collect and analyze anonymous traffic and navigation information on our behalf.
Browser Level Information. Our web servers automatically collect and log limited information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website, including the type of browser software you use, the operating system you are running, the resolution of your computer monitor, the website that referred you, the domain of your Internet service provider and your IP address. (An IP address is a numerical address that identifies your computer to other computers connected to the Internet so that data – such as the web pages you want to view – can be transmitted to you.) We use this information to make our website as useful as we can for as many users as possible.
DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES
LINKS AND FEATURES OFFERED IN CONJUNCTION WITH OTHER PROVIDERS
To the extent we gather information from users of our website, that information is stored on servers maintained in protected environments. No physical or electronic security system is impenetrable, however, and we cannot guarantee the security of the servers or databases used to store information collected on our website. We also cannot guarantee that information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. Any information you provide to us is done at your own risk.
