What About Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies?

When you interact with the Sites, we strive to make your experience easy and meaningful.  We or our third party service providers use cookies, web beacons (including clear GIFs), Flash LSOs, and similar technologies to track user activity and collect website and Application data.  We may combine this data with the personal information we have collected from you. 

 

Cookies.  Cookies allow a web server to transfer data to a computer for recordkeeping and other purposes.  We and our third party service providers may use “cookies” on our Sites to, among other things, better serve you with tailored information and facilitate your ongoing access to and use of the Sites.  There are two types of cookies: session-based and persistent cookies. In addition, we also allow vendors to use cookies on our Sites. 

 

•Session Cookies.  Session cookies exist only during an online session.  They disappear from your computer when you close your browser or turn off your computer.  We use session cookies to allow our systems to uniquely identify you during a session or while you are logged in to the Sites.  This allows us to process your online transactions and requests and verify your identity, after you have logged in, as you move through our Sites.  


•Persistent cookies.  Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you have closed your browser or turned off your computer.  We use persistent cookies to track aggregate and statistical information about user activity, which may be combined with other user information. 


•Third Party Cookies. We may also engage third parties to track and analyze non-personally and personally identifiable website data and to serve advertisements.  To do so, we may permit third parties to apply cookies to users of our Sites, where permitted by law, and, subject to your right to opt-out through the Network Advertising Initiative (as discussed below).  We use the data collected by such third parties to help us administer and improve the quality of the Sites and to analyze site usage.  Such third parties may combine the information that we provide about you with other information that they have collected.  These third parties are required to use your information in accordance with this Policy. 

 

Disabling Cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer you can edit your browser options to block them in the future.  The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your computer from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether.  Visitors to our Sites who disable their web browsers’ ability to accept cookies will be able to browse the Sites; however, many site features, such as the shopping cart, will not function if you disable cookies. 

 

Local Storage Objects.  We and our third party service providers may use Flash Local Storage Objects (“Flash LSOs”) in order to store your Site preferences, to personalize your visit or to display content based upon what you view on our Site.  Flash LSOs are different from browser cookies because of the amount and type of data stored.  In addition, you cannot control, delete or disable the acceptance of Flash LSOs through your browser.  For more information on Flash LSOs, or to learn how to manage your settings for Flash cookies, go to the Adobe Flash Player Help Page, choose “Global Storage Settings Panel” and follow the instructions.  To see the Flash LSOs currently on your computer, choose “Website Storage Settings Panel” and follow the instructions to review and, if you choose, to delete any specific Flash LSO. 

 

Web Beacons, Pixel Tags and Other Technologies.  We use web beacons, such as clear GIFs, web bugs or pixel tags, which are tiny graphics with a unique identifier similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web pages. We may use clear GIFs in connection with our Sites to, among other things, track the activities of website visitors, help us manage content, and compile statistics about website usage. We and our third party service providers also use clear GIFs in HTML emails to our customers, to help us track email response rates, measure the success of our marketing campaigns, identify when our emails are viewed and track whether our emails are forwarded. 

 

Site Analytics.  PrideStaff works with third party service providers that use the technologies described in this section to conduct website analytics to help us track and understand how visitors use our Sites. For example, we use a variety of third party web analytics, to help us improve our Sites’ performance and user experiences.  

 

Third-Party Ad Networks.  We may use third parties such as network advertisers to serve advertisements on our Sites.  Please see the section entitled “Advertisements” for additional information about our practices and your choices with regard to receiving such advertisements.  

 

Advertisements

We display advertisements on our Sites.  Some of the advertisements are based on the collection of personal information and others are based on the collection of aggregate information.  Please see the bottom of this section for opt-out information.

 

We use third parties such as network advertisers to serve advertisements on our Sites.  Network advertisers are third parties that display advertisements based on your visits to our Sites and other websites you have visited.  This enables us and these third parties to target advertisements to you for products and services in which you might be interested.  Third party ad network providers, advertisers, sponsors and/or traffic measurement services may use cookies, JavaScript, web beacons (including clear GIFs), Flash LSOs and other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content to you.  These third party cookies and other technologies are governed by each third party’s specific privacy policy, not this one.  We may provide these third-party advertisers with information about your usage of our Sites and our services, both personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information.

 

You may opt-out of many third-party ad networks. This website provides information regarding this practice by Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) members, and your choices regarding having this information used by these companies, including how to “opt-out” of third-party ad networks operated by NAI members.  You also may contact About Ads at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ for information about opting out of targeted advertising and your choices regarding having information used by About Ads member companies, including how to “opt-out” of third-party ad networks operated by About Ads members.  Opting out of one or more NAI members or About Ad members (many of which will be the same) only means that those members no longer will deliver targeted content or ads to you, but it does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content or ads on our Sites or other websites.  You may continue to receive advertisements, for example, based on the particular website that you are viewing.  Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you visit this opt-out page, or you subsequently erase your cookies, use a different computer or change web browsers, your NAI or About Ad opt-out may no longer be effective. Additional information is available on NAI’s and About Ad’s websites accessible by the above links.

 

Security of Your Information

We want the information that you submit to us to be secure.  We use commercially reasonable techniques and precautions to safeguard the information that you provide to us through our server.  Notwithstanding our commitment to your information, please be aware that there is a risk that others could find a way to thwart our security systems.  As a result, we cannot ensure or warrant the security or privacy of any information that you choose to submit to us.  

 

User Generated Content

Portions of our Sites permit users to submit their own content for blogs or to respond to blog postings.  PrideStaff is not responsible for the privacy of any information that you choose to submit through a public forum, such as a blog, or for the accuracy of any information contained in those postings.  Any information that you disclose becomes public information.  We cannot prevent such information from being used in a manner that may violate this Policy, the law, or your personal privacy.  

 

Third-Party Links

At times, our Sites may contain links to other third-party websites.  Any access to and use of such linked websites is not governed by this Policy, but, instead, is governed by the privacy policies of those third-party websites, and we are not responsible for the information practices of such third-party websites.  You should review the privacy policies of those websites before using them.

 

Children’s Privacy

Our Sites, products and services are not intended for use by children.  PrideStaff does not accept job applications from children under the age of 13, and does not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13.  If we discover that a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personal information, we will delete such information from our systems.
