A. The information we gather.

TalentDrive gathers two types of information about users:

1. Non-personally identifiable information (information that does not identify a specific individual): When visitors use the Services, we collect and aggregate information indicating, among other things, which pages were visited, the order in which they were visited, and which links were "clicked." Collecting such information involves the collection and logging of IP addresses, operating system, and browser software used by each user of the Services. Although such information is not personally identifiable, we can determine from the IP address a visitor's Internet Service Provider and the geographic location of his or her point of connectivity. The non-personally identifiable information we collect helps us identify the most popular areas of our web site and determine the effectiveness of our promotional activities. In addition, we may disclose some of this information to advertisers to inform them of the number of people who have seen and/or clicked through their advertisements. We collect non-personally identifiable information in part through the use of "cookies"

Log Files - As is true of most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.

Technologies such as: cookies, beacons, tags and scripts are used by TalentDrive and our affiliates. These technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users' movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual as well as aggregated basis.

We use cookies for tracking users' flow through the site. Users can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level. If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some features or areas of our site may be limited.

We partner with a third party to either display advertising on our Web site or to manage our advertising on other sites. Our third party partner may use technologies such as cookies to gather information about your activities on this site and other sites in order to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests. If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you interest-based ads, you may opt-out by clicking here (or if located in the european union click here) please note this does not opt you out of being served ads. You will continue to receive generic ads.

2. Personally identifiable information: In certain areas of the site, we may request that you provide us with certain personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, zip code, profession, or credit card information. We will, in such situations, seek to identify which informational items are required and which are optional. The Services are not available to children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13 years of age. In the event that you encounter any TalentDrive user who is improperly collecting or using information about you or other users, please contact privacy@TalentDrive.com.

B. How we use (and do not use) the information we gather.

Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the different ways we use the information we gather. Keep in mind that, while TalentDrive encourages all third parties involved to adhere to our policies regarding the privacy of our visitors and members and to otherwise handle personally identifiable information in a responsible manner, we cannot and do not assume any responsibility for any actions or omissions of third parties, including the manner in which they use information received either from TalentDrive or independently. Nevertheless, in the event you encounter any third party associated with, or who claims association with TalentDrive, who you feel is improperly collecting or using information about you, please contact privacy@TalentDrive.com. We will be happy to forward your message to the third party or contact the third party on your behalf.

1. How we use (and do not use) non-personally identifiable information: We use non-personally identifiable information in aggregate form to build higher quality, more useful Services by performing statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of our visitors and members, and by measuring demographics and interests regarding specific areas of the Services. We may use the aggregate data to inform these third parties as to the number of people who have seen and clicked through links to their sites.

2. How we use (and do not use) personally identifiable information: TalentDrive does not sell, re-sell or distribute for re-sale your personally identifiable information. We will share your personally identifiable information with third parties only in the ways that are describe in this privacy policy. If you believe that TalentDrive is using your personally identifiable information inappropriately, please notify TalentDrive at privacy@TalentDrive.com. In certain situations, TalentDrive, LLC may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. Please note that TalentDrive reserves the right to disclose information submitted by or concerning any visitor or member as we reasonably feel is necessary to protect our systems or business. Specifically, but without limitation, we reserve the right to disclose such information when a visitor or member is in violation of our Terms and Conditions or other published guidelines, or partakes (or is reasonably suspected of partaking) in any harmful, infringing or illegal activity, even without a subpoena, warrant, or other court order, and to disclose such information in response to court and governmental orders, civil subpoenas, bankruptcy proceedings, discovery requests, and as otherwise required by law, as well as in response to allegations of infringement.

Subject to the foregoing, TalentDrive uses your personally identifiable information in several ways:

In addition to the circumstances described above, TalentDrive may disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties as follows:

3. "Opting In": You may choose to "opt in" to receive promotional materials from TalentDrive.

We will respond to your request for access within 30 days.

Keep in mind, however, that there will be residual information that will remain within TalentDrive databases, access logs, and other records, which may or may not contain such personally identifiable information. The residual information will not be used for commercial purposes; however TalentDrive reserves the right, from time to time, to re-contact former customers or users of TalentDrive.

F. Data Retention.

The security of your personally identifiable information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personally identifiable information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
