Collection of Personal Information

We may obtain information that you provide directly to us when you interact with the Site (e.g., when you use our contact form or request information). This information may include personal information, which is information that can be used to identify you individually, such as your name, email address, and phone number.

Information collected automatically.

We use various tools and technologies like cookies and web server logs to collect information automatically on the Site. This information may include IP addresses, device identifiers, browser characteristics, operating system details, internet service provider details, language preferences, referring URLs, time and length of visits, and pages viewed.

“Cookies” are small data files stored by your web browser on your computer. Cookies may allow a website to recognize a user’s device, record user preferences, track the pages a user clicks on while visiting the website, and identify the website visited immediately beforehand. Most web browsers accept cookies by default, but you may be able to adjust your browser settings to remove or reject cookies. Please note that blocking cookies may affect the availability and functionality of this Site and other websites. Also, disabling cookies may invalidate opt outs that use cookies to recognize devices that have opted out.

We may combine certain automatically collected information with other information we obtain about you, which may include data we obtain from third parties.

Please note that we or third parties may collect personal information about your online activities over time and across different devices and online properties when you use the Site.

Information collected from other parties.

Our service providers may share with us your personal information that you submit to them. For example, if you apply for a job through the Site, you may submit personal information to one or more of our service providers that may share your information with us. We may combine information that we have about you with information we obtain from other parties. When you submit information to another party, you are subject to that third party’s terms of use and privacy policies, for which we are not responsible.
