Some of the information that you submit may be personal information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, etc.). We use this information for the purposes for which you provide it and for any other purpose described at the time information is submitted by you, as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy, or as permitted or required by applicable law.

We generally collect and use personal information provided to us on the Website and Online Services for the following purposes:

  • to establish, develop, and preserve our business relationships with our customers and other individuals with whom we conduct business, and to respond to your inquiries;
  • to provide our products and services, including, as necessary, to establish or verify the credit of persons who use, or intend to use, our products or services;
  • to allow individuals to apply for employment with us;
  • to authenticate the identity and preserve the privacy of customers or potential customers who contact us by telephone, electronic means, or otherwise;
  • to allow customers and Website visitors to register for and attend training sessions and classes;
  • for quality assurance purposes;
  • to manage our business and ensure the efficiency, reliability, and security of our systems;
  • to meet legal and regulatory requirements and to allow us to meet contractual requirements relating to our products and services;
  • to ensure our records are accurate and protect customers and our business from error and fraud;
  • to understand and assess the interests, wants, and changing needs of our customers and Website visitors with a view to improving our products and services and developing new ones;
  • to provide our customers and Website and Online Services visitors with personalized products and services as well as product recommendations; and
  • to notify our customers and Website visitors about changes to the Website and Online Services or upcoming products and services offered or provided by us, our affiliates, or our business partners that may be of interest to our customers and Website visitors.

PASSIVE INFORMATION COLLECTION

Some of the information we collect depends on the settings on your web browser or mobile device. Please check your web browser or mobile device if you want to learn what information your browser or mobile device sends or how to change your settings. In addition to the information sent by your web browser or mobile device, as you navigate through a website or mobile app, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as navigational data collection.

Like most website operators, we and our approved partners use cookies and similar technologies, local shared objects (or any other successor tracker technology), Software Development Kits, and pixel tags that automatically receive and track certain data about how you and other visitors interact with our Website and Online Services, preferences expressed, and settings chosen. For example, we may collect information about the technology you use (such as browser, type of computer, operating systems, mobile device and network used, and Internet service providers) and server log data (such as access dates and times, online features or pages viewed, system activity, and the third-party site or service you were using before interacting with our Website). These technologies are described in more detail below.

Cookies” are small text files that are stored on your browser or device by websites, mobile apps, online media, and advertisements. There are different types of cookies. Cookies served by the entity that operates the website or app you are visiting or using are called “first party cookies” (so cookies served by us while you are using our Website are first party cookies). Cookies served by companies that are not operating the website or app you are visiting or using are called “third party cookies” (so, a website analytics provider may set a cookie on your computer via our Website while you visit our Website). Cookies may also endure for different periods of time. “Session Cookies” last only as long as your browser or app is open. These are deleted automatically once you close your browser or app. Other cookies are “persistent cookies” meaning that they survive after your browser or app is closed (for example, they may recognize your computer when you re-open our online services).

Local shared objects” (also called Flash cookies or HTML5 cookies) and any other successor technology refers generally to the collection of cookie-like data stored on a browser or computer by web sites, ads, or third parties.

Pixel tags” (also called beacons or pixels) are small blocks of code installed on (or called by) a web page, app, or advertisement which can retrieve certain information about your device and browser, including device type, operating system, browser type and version, web site visited, time of visit, referring web site, IP address, and other similar information (including the small text file (the cookie) that uniquely identifies the device). Pixels provide the means by which third parties can set and read browser cookies from a domain that they do not themselves operate and collect information about visitors to that domain, typically with the permission of the domain owner. “Software Development Kits” (also called SDKs) function like pixels and cookies, but operate in the mobile app context where pixels and cookies cannot always function. The primary app developer can install pieces of code (the SDK) from partners in the app, thereby allowing such partners to collect certain information about user interaction with the app, information about the user device, and network information.

In this Privacy Policy, these and similar technologies are collectively referred to as “cookies and technologies

 

Cookie Types Purpose
Authentication These cookies and technologies tell us when you’re using our Website and Online Services so we can show you the appropriate features and content such as your account information, purchase history, and to edit your account settings.
Security and Website Integrity These cookies and technologies support or enable security features to help keep our Website and Online Services safe and secure. For example, they enable us to remember when you are logged into a secure area of our Website and help protect your account from being accessed by anyone other than you.
Online Service Features These cookies and technologies provide functionality that help us deliver products and services. For example, cookies help you log in by pre-filling fields. We may also use these cookies and similar technologies to help us provide you and others with social plugins (for example, Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn) and other customized content and experiences.
Analytics and Research

These cookies and technologies are used to understand, improve, and research our Website and Online Services, and better understand the interests of people who interact with our Website and Online Services. For example, we and our approved partners may use these cookies and technologies to understand how you are using Website features, and segmenting audiences for feature testing. We and our partners may use these technologies and the information we receive to improve and understand how you use and interact with our Website and Online Services.For example, our Website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies to analyze use patterns and may collect information about your use of our Website. More information on Google Analytics can be found here: www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. If you would like to opt-out of having your data used by these cookies, please use the Google Analytics opt-out available here:

https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM OTHER SOURCES

We may also receive information from other sources and combine it with information we collect through our Website and Online Services. For example, we may obtain information about you from commercially available sources such as data aggregators and public databases (for example, job applicant information received from LinkedIn in connection with our hiring decisions). This information may include your name, demographic information, interests, and public data (such as social media and shopping behavior).

RETENTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

We retain the personal information collected on the Website and Online Services as long as necessary to provide the services, products, and information you request or as permitted by applicable law.

Disclosure of Personal Information

We will not sell or otherwise disclose personal information collected from the Website and Online Services to any third person, except as permitted by this Privacy Policy, as permitted or provided by applicable law, or with your consent.

We may disclose personal information you provide to us via this Website and Online Services or that we collect through your use of the Website and Online Services as follows:

  • to affiliates, business partners, service providers, and contractors who support our business, in which case we will limit the amount of information disclosed to that which is necessary in order for them to provide the services or products we have engaged them to provide. We will strive to protect personal information rendered accessible by contractual agreements requiring confidentiality and security practices that help keep data inaccessible to others;
  • to respond to law enforcement requests, where required by applicable laws, court orders, or governmental regulations;
  • in the event of a sale, merger, liquidation, dissolution, reorganization, assignment, or other transfer of our business to which the information relates, in which case we will require any such buyer to agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy and use it for the same purposes as we are entitled to do so under this Privacy Policy; and
  • to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful, and in situations involving threats of physical safety of any person or when we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect our rights and property.

We are not liable for disclosure of information obtained due to errors in transmission or the unauthorized intervention of third parties.

We may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, online traffic patterns, and related information to reputable third parties, but these statistics will not include any personally identifying information.

We may allow others to provide audience measurement and analytics services for us, to serve advertisements on our behalf on our Website and Online Services and across the Internet, and to track and report on the performance of those advertisements. These entities may use cookies, pixel tags, and other technologies to identify your computer when you use or interact with our Website and Online Services, as well as when you visit other web sites and services. When third-party ad providers collect data on our Website and Online Services for their own purposes (not solely on our behalf), that data collected and maintained by those third-party ad providers will be subject to the terms of use and privacy policies of those providers.

The Website and Online Services may use social media plugins (for example, the Facebook “Share” button, “Share to Twitter”’ button) to enable you to easily share information with others. When you visit our Website, the operator of the social plugin can place a cookie on your computer, enabling that operator to recognize individuals who have previously visited our Website. If you are logged into the social media website (for example, Facebook, Twitter, Google+) while browsing on our Website, the social plugins allow that social media website to receive information that you have visited our Website. The social plugins also allow the social media website to share information about your activities on our Website with other users of their social media website. For example, Facebook social plugin allows Facebook to show your comments on our pages to your Facebook friends. We do not control any of the content from the social media plugins. For more information about social plugins from other social media websites you should refer to those sites’ privacy and data sharing statements.

We may transfer the information described in this Privacy Policy to, and process and store it in, the United States and other countries, some of which may have less protective data protection laws than the region in which you reside. Where this is the case, we will take appropriate measures to protect your information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Nonetheless, your personal information may be subject to foreign laws and may be accessible by foreign government authorities, courts, law enforcement, and regulatory agencies.

  1. Choices You Have About How We Use Your Information

We strive to provide you with as many choices and as much control as possible regarding the personal information we collect about you.

You may send us an e-mail message at elisiecki@alpineitw.com to request access to, correct, or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. To protect your privacy, we will only respond to e-mail messages sent from the e-mail account you used to set up your account.

You have the right to opt-out of marketing communications we send you at any time. You can exercise this right by clicking on the ‘unsubscribe’ or ‘opt-out’ link in the marketing e-mails we send you. To opt-out of other forms of marketing (such as postal marketing or telemarketing), then please contact us using the contact details in Section 6 below.

If you do not wish for us to collect cookies, you may set your browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you do so, please note that some parts of this Website may then be inaccessible or not function properly. Removing or rejecting browser cookies does not necessarily affect third-party Flash cookies (see “Local shared objects” above) which may be used by us or our partners in connection with our Website and Online Services. You may need to take additional steps to delete or disable Flash cookies.

Our Website and Online Services may provide forums and other areas where you can communicate with others and publicly post information. You have no privacy rights in public postings. All information you post will be accessible to anyone with internet access, and any personal information you include in your posting may be read, collected and used by others. Please use caution when posting any personal information.

You can also generally opt-out of receiving personalized ads from third party advertisers and ad networks that honor such requests by visiting: www.aboutads.info/choices (if you are in the United States), http://youradchoices.ca/choices/ (if you are in Canada), or http://youronlinechoices.eu/ (if you are in Europe).

DO NOT TRACK: Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to websites with which the browser communicates. Our Website and Online Services do not currently respond to these “do-not-track” signals.

  1. How We Protect Your Information

We work hard to protect your personal information. All information collected through the Website and Online Services is stored within a secured database that is not accessible to the outside world. Resumes are stored on file systems that are not publicly accessible. Our servers are protected behind both hardware and software firewalls. Low-level access to information is restricted to authorized support personnel only.

The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Never share your password with anyone else, notify us promptly if you believe your password security has been breached, and remember to log off this Website before you leave your computer.

Our Website and Online Services contain links to other websites operated by third parties that may be of interest to you. We cannot control these third-party sites, which may collect personal information from you. When you follow a link and leave this Website or Online Service, you do so at your own risk. We encourage you to read that third party’s privacy policy or contact them directly regarding their privacy practices.
