How is Personal Information Used?
Information Collected Automatically | Non-PII
We may receive and store certain types of non-PII whenever you interact with the Services. Careerleaf may choose to automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information, and the page you requested.
Careerleaf uses “cookies” to collect non-personal data and information. Cookies are small text files a website uses to recognize repeat users, and is typically placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies contain information that can later be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. The way cookies function is by assigning a number to the user that has no meaning outside of the assigning website.
Sharing of Personal Information
Careerleaf occasionally hires other companies to provide limited administrative and communication services on our behalf, such as hosting websites, the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, or performing statistical analysis of the Services. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only such Personal Information as necessary for them to deliver the service. Those companies are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose. You hereby consent to our sharing of Personal Information for the above purposes.
Security and Protection of Personal Information
We maintain reasonable standards of security and confidentiality and store Personal Information collected in a database. However, while we employ reasonable standards of security, no security system is impenetrable. For most internet sites, it is possible that third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions you submit. As such, Careerleaf cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply won’t be intercepted while being transmitted to Careerleaf over the internet. We recommend that you do not disclose your password or confirmation number (as applicable) to anyone.
Upon registration for events and/or services provided by Careerleaf, we may send you daily or weekly e-mails. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please notify us via our Contact page under the heading “Unsubscribe” and include sufficient information for us to identify your account, including your name, email address and the specifics of your request. However, even if you unsubscribe to cease receiving such e-mails, Careerleaf may still contact you via e-mail for administrative or informational purposes, including messages regarding the administration of your Careerleaf Account and/or any services or events to which you have registered.
