Privacy Policy

The following policy is intended to explain our current Internet privacy practices, but shall not be construed as a contractual promise.

Information we collect

When you access our Web site, routing or client information, essential and nonessential technical information listed below, is automatically collected. No other information is collected through our Web site except when you deliberately decide to send it to us (for example, by clicking on a link to send us an e-mail). The information you might choose to send us is listed below as "optional information."

  • Routing, or client, information: the Internet domain and Internet address of the computer you are using.
  • Essential technical information: identification of the service you are requesting, type of browser and operating system you are using; and the date and time of access.
  • Optional information: when you send us an e-mail, your name, e-mail address, and the content of your e-mail; when you fill out on-line forms, all the data you choose to fill in or confirm.
  • Cookies: Our Web site places a "session-cookie" on your computer during the online job application session, unless your browser is set to reject cookies. The cookie is placed on your computer to facilitate the process of accepting and posting any information that you choose to deliver to us.
  • Nonessential technical information: the Internet address of the Web site from which you linked directly to our Web site, and the "cookie information" described above.

How the collected information is used

Routing information is used to route the requested Web page to your computer for viewing. We send the requested Web page and routing information to our Internet service provider or other entities involved in transmitting the requested page to you. We do not control the privacy practices of those entities. Essential and nonessential technical information helps us respond to your request in a personalized manner and helps us plan Web site improvements.

We do not sell or share your information or otherwise use it to solicit further or other business from you.

Optional information enables us to provide services or information tailored more specifically to your needs.

We may keep your information indefinitely, but we do not try to obtain any information to link it to the individuals who browse our Web site. However, on a rare occasion when a hacker attempts to breach computer security, logs of routing information are retained to permit a security investigation and in such cases may be forwarded together with any other relevant information in our possession to our information technology staff or law enforcement officials, where appropriate. We use this transaction routing information primarily in a statistical summary type format to assess site content and server performance.

Choice to provide information

There is no legal requirement for you to provide any information at our Web site. However, our Web site will not work without routing information and the essential technical information. Failure of your browser to provide nonessential technical information will not prevent your use of our Web site, but may prevent certain features from working. Failure to provide optional information will mean that the particular feature or service associated with that part of the Web page will not be available to you.

We reserve the right to amend our Internet Privacy Policy Statement at any time without notice.
