Collection of your Personal Information on Our Websites
When you visit our websites, we will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it to us voluntarily. We strive to collect only that information that we think is necessary for our legitimate interests consistent with the programs and services offered by and through Kerlan-Jobe. Such information includes personally identifiable information such as your email address, name, home or work address, telephone number, and may include your social security number and such other personally identifiable information which you provide to us to participate in programs or services we offer or which may be offered through or linked to third parties (“Personal Data”).
You are encouraged to review the privacy statements of those websites you choose to link to from the Kerlan-Jobe websites so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. Kerlan-Jobe is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of Kerlan-Jobe or actions by such third parties.
When you visit our websites, there is also information about your computer hardware and software that may be automatically collected by Kerlan-Jobe. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information may be used by Kerlan-Jobe for the operation of the websites, to maintain the quality of the websites, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the websites. It may also be used to determine what services and programs offered by or through Kerlan-Jobe are the most popular. This data may be used to deliver customized content to users of Kerlan-Jobe websites whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
Use of your Personal Data
Kerlan-Jobe collects and uses your Personal Data to operate our websites and deliver the programs or services you have requested and to inform you of other products, programs or services available from Kerlan-Jobe. Kerlan-Jobe may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or programs or of potential new services or programs that may be offered. Kerlan-Jobe may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (email, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party.
Personal Data may be made available to or at the direction of legal or regulatory authorities, without notice to you, if required by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) respond to or be in compliance with legal process served on Kerlan-Jobe; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Kerlan-Jobe; or, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Kerlan-Jobe’ websites or the public.
Like Personal Data you disclose on Kerlan-Jobe’s public message boards or blogs, Social Media Data you post may be collected and used by Kerlan-Jobe and others without limitation. In addition, Social Media Data you submit as part of a sweepstakes may be collected and used by Kerlan-Jobe for any purpose, including marketing efforts. We are not responsible for the privacy of any information you reveal or post in any public forum (e.g., message board, blog, personal page, etc.) or for the privacy practices of websites that are operated or owned by third parties, such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
Kerlan-Jobe websites may use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie may be to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Kerlan-Jobe pages, or register with Kerlan-Jobe websites or services, a cookie helps Kerlan-Jobe to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Kerlan-Jobe website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of Kerlan-Jobe services or websites you visit.
Security Measures and Safety of Children
Safeguarding personal information of children is extremely important. We collect the minimum amount of personal information necessary to provide the services or programs we offer. A child's personal information will always be available for parental inspection, and service of any special content will be terminated upon parental request. We recognize that there are standards in the area of children's privacy that may affect how we process a child's personal information, and we will always comply with the law, and exceed industry standards to protect children. All personal information of minors may only be provided by, or with consent and guidance of, their parents or guardians. The parent or guardian is responsible for supervising the child’s use of, and access to, our websites.
Kerlan-Jobe strives to protect the privacy of the information you provide so that inadvertent disclosure of that information is unlikely. In the event of such an inadvertent disclosure, we will make commercially reasonable efforts to limit and mitigate the disclosure, but Kerlan-Jobe accepts no liability for any unintentional disclosure or a disclosure that occurs due to a security breach of our systems or facilities.
Unsubscribing or Opt-Out or Other Questions or Comments
We are firmly committed to guarding the confidence you have placed in us and to use any information you volunteer responsibly and professionally.
We frequently provide users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us at the point where we request your information. Also, in our email communications, you will find instructions for unsubscribing. Kerlan-Jobe seeks to comply with the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 and will always strive to maintain a good relationship when contacting you.
