We collect two types of information about our users: Non-Personally Identifiable Information and Personally Identifiable Information.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information: When users 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 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 user’s internet service provider and the geographic location of the user’s point of connectivity.
The non-personally identifiable information we collect helps us identify the most popular areas of our Services and determine the effectiveness of our marketing activities. We collect non-personally identifiable information in part through the use of small text files (“cookies”) placed on the your computer's hard drive that help us determine the type of content and pages to which you link, the length of time you spend at any particular area of the Services, and the Services you choose to use.
Personally Identifiable Information: In certain areas of the Services, such as those in which you create a new account, complete a profile, or post a resume, we may request that you provide us with certain Personally Identifiable Information. Personally Identifiable Information includes, among other things, your e-mail address, name, zip code, profession, or work experience. We will, in such situations, seek to identify which informational items are mandatory and which are optional. If you do not provide the mandatory information with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity. ETSZONE will not collect any personal information from you unless you provide it to us voluntarily.
You should create accounts, profiles, or post resumes to our Services only if you wish such information to be viewed by other users, sponsors, employers. If, after creating an account, profile, or posting a resume you decide you no longer want that information viewed by other users, sponsors, and employers, you may terminate your account by following the instructions here or contacting ETSZONE at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will terminate the account.
Please note that we cannot control the acts of users of the Services. All users should be aware that, when they disclose Personally Identifiable Information, the information may be collected and used by others. In the event that you encounter any user who is improperly collecting or using information about you or other users, please contact email@example.com.
ETSZONE encourages all third parties involved to adhere to our policies regarding the privacy of our users and to otherwise handle Personally Identifiable Information in a responsible manner. However, 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 ETSZONE or independently. Nevertheless, in the event you encounter any third party associated with, or who claims association with ETSZONE, whom you feel is improperly collecting or using information about you, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 users, and by measuring demographics and interests regarding specific areas of the Services. We may provide statistical information based on this data to users and other current and potential business partners. We may also 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.
We do not sell, re-sell or distribute for re-sale your Personally Identifiable Information. Sponsors or employers may only use the information you provided in your resume and profiles to evaluate your qualifications for the open job opportunities. You should be aware, however, that ETSZONE has no way to control how a sponsor, employer, or other user actually uses the service and how they use the resume and profile information.
If ETSZONE is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Services of any change in ownership or uses of your Personally Identifiable Information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your Personally Identifiable Information. ETSZONE reserves the right to assign, sell, license, or otherwise transfer to a third party your Personally Identifiable Information in connection with an assignment, sale, joint venture, or other transfer or disposition of any portion or all of ETSZONE's or its affiliated entities' assets or stock.
ETSZONE may use your Personally Identifying Information:
In addition to the circumstances described above, ETSZONE may disclose your Personally-Identifiable Information to third parties as follows:
You may receive promotional materials from us about our Services, or on behalf of our affiliates, advertisers, or other business partners. You may "opt out" of receiving such materials at any time by using the "opt-out" link included in each email, by changing your subscriptions preferences on the "user settings" page in your account or by contacting us at email@example.com.
All information made available to ETSZONE may be made available to our contractors and consultants, and professional advisors (such as attorneys or accountants), but only to the extent necessary for them to perform services on our behalf, and only under a duty of confidentiality.
You may change any of your Personally Identifiable Information in your account online at any time. We encourage you to promptly update your Personally Identifiable Information if it changes. You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed. However, it may be impossible to completely delete your Personally Identifiable Information without some residual information remaining on backups.
We may, from time to time, send you email regarding our products and services. In addition, if you indicated upon registration that you are interested in receiving information from us and our partners, we may occasionally send you email that we feel may be of interest to you. Only ETSZONE (or agents working on behalf of ETSZONE and under confidentiality agreements) will send you these mailings and only if you indicated that you wish to receive these mailings. If you do not want to receive such mailings, simply tell us when you give us your personal information. Or, at any time you can easily edit your account information to no longer receive such offers and mailings.
You also have choices with respect to cookies. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject all cookies some parts of our site may not work properly in your case.
ETSZONE is committed to keeping the data you provide us secure and will take reasonable precautions to protect your Personally Identifiable Information from loss, misuse or alteration.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personally Identifiable Information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this site cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party.
ETSZONE believes that it is especially important to protect children's privacy online. Our Services are not directed at children and we do not knowingly collect Personally Identifiable Information from children.
