Information We Collect Automatically. If you merely browse through our websites or download information, our servers will automatically collect certain information from you. This information includes the: (a) name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet; (b) the browser software and operating system you use; and (c) the websites and search engines that have referred visitors to our website. We will use the information that we automatically collect to manage and improve our website to make it as useful as possible for our visitors. LinkUp may also aggregate visitor data to analyze user patterns and generate site statistics. None of the information we automatically collect is tied to personal information you may provide to us.
Information You Choose to Provide to Us. LinkUp gathers and retains personal information about you only when voluntarily submitted by you. For example, if you choose to register on one of our websites, we collect your name and the email address you provide. If you set up Job Alerts, LinkUp will retain the job parameters you submit in order to notify you via email when new relevant job listings become available. You can unsubscribe from any of your existing Job Alerts at any time by going to the Job Alerts page or clicking on the ‘Delete’ link within the email. When you conduct a job search as a registered user, LinkUp saves your job search history. In addition, LinkUp's Saved Jobs feature allows you to bookmark your favorite jobs so you can access and apply to them at a later time. After you have saved a job, you can review your Saved Jobs any time and be notified when a job has been closed by an employer.
Disclosure of Personal Information to Third Parties. LinkUp will not sell, rent, or give away the personal information you provide to us to any third party. In addition, we will not disclose the personal information you provide to us without your consent, except (a) as required by subpoenas, court order, legal process, or other legal obligations and to exercise our legal rights or defend against claims, (b) to our independent contractors who host and maintain our website and e-mail services, (c) to service providers or suppliers if the disclosure will enable that party to perform business, professional, or technical support for us, or (d) to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, or as otherwise required by law.
