Here are the types of information we gather:
In addition to the information that we collect from you directly, we may also receive information about you from other sources, including third parties, business partners, our affiliates, or publicly available sources. For example, if you submit a job application, or become an employee, we may conduct a background check.
How We Use Personal Information
We use the personal information we collect from you to fulfill the purpose for which it was provided to us, such as contacting you about our services, evaluating your employment application. We may also use your personal information: (1) to provide you with information, products or services that you request from us; (2) to provide you with email alerts, event registrations and other notices concerning our products or services, or events or news, that may be of interest to you; (3) to improve our website and present its contents to you; (4) for testing, research, analysis and product development; and (5) for any other purpose with your consent.
Although the sections above describe our primary purpose in collecting your information, in many situations we have more than one purpose. For example, if you sign up for services, we may collect your information to complete that transaction, but we also collect your information as we have a legitimate interest in maintaining your information after your transaction is complete so that we can quickly and easily respond to any questions about your services. As a result, our collection and processing of your information are based in different contexts upon your consent, our need to perform a contract, our obligations under the law, and/or our legitimate interest in conducting our business.
Disclosure of Personal Information
In addition to the specific situations discussed elsewhere in this policy, we may disclose personal information we collect from you: (1) if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property or safety of us, our clients or others (2) to contractors, service providers, and other third parties we use to support our business; (3) to fulfill the purpose for which you provide it; (4) to a buyer or other successor in the event of a sale, merger, reorganization or transfer of some or all of our business or assets; (5) for any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information; (6) to comply with any court order, law or legal process, including responding to any government or regulatory request; (7) to carry out our obligations and enforce our rights arising from any contracts entered into between you and us, including for billing and collections; or (8) with your consent. We do not sell or otherwise share personal information with third parties for direct marketing purposes.

Following a request, we will use reasonable efforts to supply, correct or delete personal information about you in our files.
In some circumstances, you may designate an authorized agent to submit requests to exercise certain privacy rights on your behalf.

We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access and disclosure. The use of, and access to, your personal information by us is restricted to employees and contractors who need to know that information to provide services to you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to limit access to your nonpublic personal information.
Unfortunately, no method of transmission of information via the internet or electronic storage is completely secure. Although we use reasonable efforts to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to us through our website or other electronic means. Any electronic transmission of personal information is at your own risk.
