Accordingly, our third-party advertising networks and ad servers will also provide us with information, including reports that will tell us how many ads were presented and clicked on the Services in a manner that does not identify personally any specific individual.
The Usage Data we collect is generally non-identifying, but if we associate it with you as a specific and identifiable person, we will treat it as Personal Data.</p>
<li> Cookies/Tracking Technologies <p>We use tracking technologies, such as cookies, local storage, and pixel tags.</p> Cookies and Local Storage <p>Cookies and local storage may be set and accessed on your computer.

however, if you reject cookies, you will not be able to sign in to the Services or take full advantage of our Services.
Additionally, if you clear all cookies on your browser at any point after setting your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent, you will have to again reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent.</p>
<p>Our Services use the following types of cookies for the purposes set out below</p> Cookies and Local Storage Type of cookie Purpose Analytics and Performance Cookies These cookies are used to collect information about traffic to our Services and how users use our Services.
The information gathered does not identify any individual visitor.
The information is aggregated and therefore anonymous.
It includes the number of visitors to our Services, the websites that referred them to our Services, the pages that they visited on our Services, what time of day they visited our Services, whether they have visited our Services before, and other similar information.
We use this information to help operate our Services more efficiently, to gather broad demographic information and to monitor the level of activity on our Services.
We use Google Analytics for this purpose.
Google Analytics uses its own cookies.
It is only used to improve how our Services works.
You can find out more information about Google Analytics cookies here.
You can find out more about how Google protects your data here.
You can prevent the use of Google Analytics relating to your use of our Services by downloading and installing the browser plugin available here Essential Cookies These cookies are essential to provide you with services available through our Services and to enable you to use its features.
For example, they allow you to log in to secure areas of our Services and help the content of the pages you request load quickly.
Without these cookies, the services that you have asked for cannot be provided, and we only use these cookies to provide you with those services.
Functionality Cookies These cookies allow our Services to remember choices you make when you use our Services, such as remembering your language preferences, remembering your login details, remembering which polls you have voted in and in some cases, to show you poll results, and remembering the changes you make to other parts of our Services which you can customize.
The purpose of these cookies is to provide you with a more personal experience and to avoid you having to re-enter your preferences every time you visit our Services.
Social Media Cookies These cookies are used when you share information using a social media sharing button or “like” button on our Services or you link your account or engage with our content on or through a social networking website such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+.
The social network will record that you have done this.
Targeted and advertising cookies These cookies track your browsing habits to enable us to show advertising which is more likely to be of interest to you.
These cookies use information about your browsing history to group you with other users who have similar interests.
Based on that information, and with our permission, third-party advertisers can place cookies to enable them to show adverts which we think will be relevant to your interests while you are on third-party websites.
These cookies also store your location, including your latitude, longitude, and GeoIP region ID, which helps us show you locale-specific news and allows our Services to operate more efficiently.
You can disable cookies which remember your browsing habits and target advertising at you by visiting here.
If you choose to remove targeted or advertising cookies, you will still see adverts but they may not be relevant to you.
Even if you do choose to remove cookies by the companies listed at the above link, not all companies that serve online behavioral advertising are included in this list, and so you may still receive cookies and tailored adverts from companies that are not listed.
Flash <p>A Flash cookie is a data file placed on a device via the Adobe Flash plug-in that is built into or downloaded by you onto your device.
Flash cookies are used for various purposes, including, without limitation, enabling a Flash feature and remembering your preferences.
For more information about Flash and the privacy choices Adobe offers, visit here.
If you choose to adjust your Flash privacy settings on your device some features of the Services may not function properly.</p> Pixel Tags <p>We also use "pixel tags," which are small graphic files that allow us and third parties to monitor the use of the Services and collect Usage Data.
A pixel tag can collect information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the tag appears.
the URL of the page on which the pixel tag appears.
the time (and length of time) the page containing the pixel tag was viewed.
the type of browser that retrieved the pixel tag.
and the identification number of any cookie previously placed by that server on your computer.</p>
<p>We use pixel tags, either provided by us or by our third-party advertisers, service providers and ad networks, to collect information about your visit, including the pages you view, the links you click and other actions taken in connection with our sites and Services and use them in combination with our cookies to provide offers and information of interest to you.
Pixel tags also enable ad networks to serve targeted advertisements to you when you visit the Services or other websites.</p>
<p>In addition, we use a variety of other technologies that collect similar information for security and fraud detection purposes.</p>
You can also find more information about cookies and how they work, what cookies have been set on your computer or mobile device and how to manage and delete them here and here.</p>

In addition, you are required to provide certain Personal Data when you submit a job application and supporting materials.
You can also choose to submit or we may collect additional information about yourself, such as demographic information (for example your gender, birth date, or zip code) and information about your preferences and interests.
Failure to provide any required Personal Data will prevent us from being able to provide the Services you request (e.g., member registration or submission of job application) or otherwise inhibit our ability to provide the Services.</p>
<p>We refer collectively to all information we collect that is not Personal Data, including Usage Data, demographic data and de-identified Personal Data, as "Non-Personal Data".
<li> Information We Receive From Other Sources <p>We supplement the information we collect with outside records in order to learn more about our users, to better tailor the content and offers we show you, and for other purposes.
We receive this information about you from public sources or third parties, including without limitation consumer data resellers and advertisers.
We combine the information we receive from those other sources with information we collect through the Services.
<li> Information Use <p>We use the information we collect, including Personal Data and Usage Data:</p>
<li>to enable you to use our Services, to create an account or profile, to process information you provide via our Services (including verifying that your email address is active and valid) and to process your transactions;</li>
<li>to provide related customer service and care, including responding to your questions, complaints, or comments and sending surveys (with your consent) and processing survey responses;</li>
<li>to provide you with information, products, or services that you have requested;</li>
<li>to receive and process job applications for jobs with us;</li>
<li>with your consent, to provide you with information, products, or services that we otherwise believe will interest you, including special opportunities from us and our third-party partners;</li>
<li>to tailor content, recommendations, and advertisements we and third parties display to you, both on the Services and elsewhere online;</li>
<li>for internal business purposes, such as to improve our Services;</li>
<li>to administer and process contests, sweepstakes, and promotions;</li>
<li>to comply with regulatory and legal obligations.
<li> Social Network and Platform Integration <p>The Services contain integration with social networks and other platforms in which information is shared between us and such platforms.
For example, if you create or log into your account through a third-party social media site, we will have access to certain information from that site, such as your name, email address, account information, photo and friends lists, and other information in accordance with the authorization procedures determined by such social media site.
<li> Our Information Sharing Practice <ul>
We share Non-Personal Data, including Usage Data, de-identified Personal Data and aggregated user statistics, with third parties in our discretion.
We share User Information, including Personal Data, as otherwise described in this Policy, and under the following circumstances:</li>
<li>(b) Service Providers.
From time to time, we enter into relationships with third parties who provide services to us (for example, analytics companies, advertisers and ad agencies, data management and storage services or credit card processing services, sweepstakes or contest prize fulfillment).
In those circumstances, we disclose User Information so that such service providers perform those services.
These service providers are only permitted to use your Personal Data to the extent necessary to enable them to provide their services to us.
They are required to follow our express instructions and to comply with appropriate security measures to protect your Personal Data.
In particular, our sites use certain Google analytics and other services, and certain pages use the Google AMP Client ID API, each of which enable collection and sharing of your information (including Personal Data) with Google for further use.
<li>(c) Third-Party Marketing.
You will have a choice (opt-in or opt-out) before we share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.
Provided that you have chosen to receive marketing messages from third parties, we share your information (including Personal Data) with third parties for those third parties' own direct marketing purposes.
We also match your email address with third parties with whom you have also consented to share your email address and use such match to deliver custom offers or emails to you on the Services and off the Services provided you have consented to receiving such offers or emails.</li>
<li>(d) Change of Control.
In the event we go through a business transition (such as a merger, acquisition by another company, bankruptcy, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, including, without limitation, during the course of any due diligence process), your Personal Data will likely be among the assets transferred.
By providing your Personal Data, you agree that we can transfer such information in those circumstances without your further consent.
<li>(e) Other Disclosure Scenarios.
We reserve the right, and you hereby expressly authorize us, to share User Information: (i) in response to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish, protect, or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
(ii) if we believe it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, fraud, or situations involving potential threats to the safety of any person or property.
(iii) if we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding significant abuse of the Services infrastructure or the Internet in general (such as voluminous spamming, denial of service attacks, or attempts to compromise the security of information).
(iv) to protect and defend our legal rights or property, our services or their users, or any other party, and to protect the health and safety of our users or the general public.
<li> Anonymous Data <p>When we use the term "anonymous data," we are referring to data and information that does not permit you to be identified or identifiable, either alone or when combined with any other information available to a third-party.
We may create anonymous data from the Personal Data we receive about you and other individuals whose Personal Data we collect.
Anonymous data will include analytics information and information collected by us using cookies.
We make Personal Data into anonymous data by excluding information (such as your name) that makes the data personally identifiable to you.
We use this anonymous data to analyze usage patterns in order to make improvements to our Services.</p>
<li> Public Information <p>If you identify any User Information as public, you are authorizing us to share such information publicly.
For example, you can elect to make certain of your User Submissions (such as your alias, bio, email or photos) publicly available.
Also, there are areas of the Services (for example, message boards, discussion rooms, and other online forums) in which you are able to post information that automatically will be available to all other users of the Services.
By choosing to use these areas, you understand and agree that anyone can access, use, and disclose any information that you post to those areas.</p>
<li> Users Outside of the United States and Consent to Transfer <p>The Services are operated in the United States.
If you are located in another jurisdiction, please be aware that information you provide to us will be transferred to, stored and processed in the United States.
By using the Services or providing us with any information, you consent to this transfer, processing, and storage of your information in the United States, a jurisdiction in which the privacy laws are not as comprehensive as those in the country where you reside or are a citizen such as the European Union.
You understand that the U.S.
government can obtain access to the Personal Data you submit if necessary for investigative purposes (e.g., terrorism investigation).

Therefore, like many websites and online services, the Services do not alter their practices when they receive a "Do Not Track" signal from a visitor's browser.
To find out more about "Do Not Track," please visit here.</p>

unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
As a result, while we strive to protect your User Information, we cannot guarantee its security.
You use the Services and provide us with information at your own initiative and risk.
If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you have with us has been compromised), please immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us using the details in the Contact Us section below.</p>

We will delete such information from our files as soon as reasonably practicable.</p>
<li> Sensitive Personal Data <p>Subject to the following paragraph, we ask that you not send us, and you not disclose, any sensitive personal data as this term is defined under applicable data protection and privacy laws (for example, social security numbers, information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health, biometrics or genetic characteristics, criminal background or trade union membership) on or through the Services or otherwise to us.</p>
If you do not consent to our processing and use of such sensitive personal data, you must not submit such content to our Services.</p>
We will also provide notice to you in other ways in our discretion, such as through contact information you have provided.
However, we will not, without your consent, use your Personal Data in a manner materially different than what was stated at the time your Personal Data was collected.</p>
