Effective Date: January 1, 2007
TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT
At our site, we may collect both personally-identifiable information and aggregate information.
Personally-identifiable information relates to an individual consumer - e.g., name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, etc. We only collect personally-identifiable information from individuals who provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly, such as by registering at our site, or by providing name and address information and requesting follow-up contacts from us. We don't require you to register or provide this information to us in order to view our site or have access to its content.
Aggregate information relates to such things as how many consumers visit the site, which pages they access, what information they download, the type of web browser and operating system you use, the name of your Internet Service Provider (e.g., America Online), and so on. When you visit our site, we automatically collect this information ,and combine it with similar information collected about all other visitors. By collecting this information, we learn how to best tailor our website to our visitors.
HOW INFORMATION IS COLLECTED
As we noted above, personally-identifiable information is collected from you directly and with your knowledge. Thus, when you register on the site, we collect the information you provide. When you apply for a posted position, we collect the information needed for you to participate and for us to fulfill our obligations to you. When you e-mail us, we collect the e-mail address you supply, so that we can respond.
We also collect aggregate, non-personal information on an ongoing basis when you view our website. The collection of this non-personal information is done either through "cookie" technology or with "web beacons" (also called 'single-pixel gifs'), as explained below.
HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
If you specifically agreed to follow-up contacts by us or asked to be put on our mailing list when you registered, we may contact you from time to time. For example, we may send you marketing or promotion materials; we may respond to your comments or requests for information; or we may contact you if needed in the course of processing a product or service you requested through our website.
We don't use your e-mail address for any purpose other than responding to the message you've sent, unless we have your permission.
We also use personal information about you to improve our marketing and promotional efforts; to statistically analyze website usage; and to improve our features and content. We may also use your personal information to deliver content that is customized to your interests as we best understand them from the information you've provided to us and your activities on the site. We do not collect personal information automatically, but we may combine non-personal information collected automatically (through cookies) with your previously submitted personal information.
Shared Services' primary goal in collecting personal information is to give you a meaningful and customized experience while you are using our websites and interactive banner ads.
THIRD PARTIES WHO PROVIDE SERVICES
In the course of doing business, we may employ other companies and individuals to perform a variety of functions on our behalf. For example, we hire agencies to help administer consumer promotions, to analyze data, to fulfill orders you place, and to provide customer service. These agents may have access to personal information if it is needed to perform their functions for us; however, they are prohibited from using it for other purposes and they are required to maintain the information in confidence.
HOW YOU CAN ACCESS OR CORRECT YOUR INFORMATION
You can request to access, review, correct, update or have your personally identifiable information deleted from our database in the following ways:
