THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
There are two kinds of information web sites can obtain about you:
(1) Anonymous Information: Anonymous Information is aggregate data that web sites use to administer their sites. It may include such information as your browser type or your Internet Protocol (IP) address. Vaco may from time to time retain third parties to help us collect and aggregate Site customer information.
IP Addresses. An IP address is unique string of numbers that is assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our Site, avoid hacking attacks on the Site’s server, and may use it to gather broad demographic information. We do not link IP addresses to any personally identifiable information, even if such information is voluntarily provided by a user.
(2) Personally Identifiable Information: Personally Identifiable Information is any information that personally identifies you, such as your name, email address or your telephone number. Sometimes this personal information is needed when you contact us. We may ask you to provide us with personal information on a voluntary basis in certain areas of our Site. In particular, you may be asked to provide the following information:
Email Correspondence. Scattered throughout the Site are links that can be used to contact Vaco so you can comment, send a resume, make suggestions and ask questions. Your email address is required so we can answer your questions, and we want your name, too, so we can address our answer in a mannerly way. Vaco may put information from email on file, but does not currently share, sell, license or transmit this information with third parties without express authorization from you.
Resume Submission. The Site includes links for email submission of your resume to Vaco. Once submitted to Vaco, your resume will be stored on Vaco’s internal servers. Vaco considers your resume and the accompanying Personally Identifiable Information strictly private and will only disclose such information as necessary to consider your resume or as required by law. Vaco will retain your resume unless specifically instructed by you to remove your resume from our server. You may update or modify your resume at any time by submitting a new resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOW WE USE GATHERED INFORMATION
The information you share with us may be used in a few ways:
(1) Anonymous Information: “Anonymous Information” is used internally for Site administration, troubleshooting and to help improve the quality of the web pages. We may share such aggregated, non-personally identifiable information, such as demographics, with existing and prospective business partners and advertisers. We never connect aggregate information with Personally Identifiable Information, and none of the aggregate information we share will contain any information that identifies you individually.
(2) Personally Identifiable Information: “Personally Identifiable Information” collected by Vaco may be used for purposes including administration of the Site and communications with you. In all cases, however, we will only use your information as permitted by law. We also may disclose Personally Identifiable Information if we are required to do so by law or we in good faith believe that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law or with legal process; (b) protect and defend our rights and property; (c) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Site; or (d) protect the personal safety or property of our users or the public. Please note that we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.
Access and Correction
You have a right to know about the personal information that Vaco holds about you, including the right to correct, amend or delete the information that Vaco has on file if it is incorrect. If you wish to exercise these rights please contact us by email or postal mail at the addresses below.
This Site incorporates appropriate safeguards to protect the security, integrity, completeness, accuracy and privacy of any personal information collected. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as required and only authorized individuals have access to the information you provide.
Security of information communicated by or to us over the Internet is of utmost concern to us; unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Please note that your email, like most, if not all, non-encrypted Internet communications, may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users, without your knowledge and permission, while in transit to us. For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use email to communicate information to us that you consider confidential. While we strive to protect your personal information, Vaco cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or through our Site, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we will use reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our internal systems. Depending on the nature of the inquiry, your communication may be discarded or archived. If you wish, you may contact us instead via telephone at the numbers provided throughout our Site.
DISCLOSURE OF CUSTOMER INFORMATION THROUGH BUSINESS TRANSFERS
As we continue to develop our business, we may buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses, and in so doing, acquire customer information. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. Similarly, in the unlikely event that a portion or substantially all of Vaco’s assets are sold or transferred to a third party, customer information (including your email address) would likely be one of the transferred business assets.
Our Commitment to children’s privacy
Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. The Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act of 1998 ("COPPA") defines a "Child" as anyone under the age of 13. Vaco strictly adheres to COPPA. For that reason, we do not collect or maintain information obtained through our Site from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our Site is structured to attract anyone under 13.
