Golden Gate America, LLC (“we” or “us”) collects certain information about you through our website. We care about your privacy and this page lays out our policies and procedures surrounding the collection and handling of any information we collect from you.
What information do we collect?
We collect two different kinds of information from you:
Personally Identifiable Information (or “PII”) is information that could be used to identify you as an individual or that could be used to contact or locate you.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information (or “non-PII”) is any other kind of information we collect from you.
How and when do we collect your information?
We collect your information both actively and passively. Active data collection occurs when you enter your information into a form on our website. Passive data collection occurs without your affirmative consent by our site’s use of browser cookies and other analytic and reporting technologies. Browser cookies are small files usually used to persist data between browser sessions by saving certain pieces of non-PII. It allows the browser to “remember” what you did the last time you visited our site.
You may also visit our site anonymously—that is, without explicitly entering your information into our website. If you visit our site anonymously, we will not perform active data collection but we will still perform passive data collection.
Actively collected PII: We collect your email address, your name, your phone number, and your address when you enter it on our website when applying for a job. These data items are considered PII because each of them can be used individually to identify you or to contact you.
Actively collected non-PII: We also collect your date of birth, whether you have a valid driver license, your gender, your employment background and history, the location of your job search, and the kind of job you are looking for. While some of this data may be considered “personal” data, it is still considered non-PII because the use of only one of these items individually cannot be used to identify you or locate you. In addition, no one can look at one piece of this non-PII and be able to determine that it is information pertaining to you as an individual.
Passively collected PII: We will never collect PII from you without your affirmative consent.
Passively collected non-PII: We collect certain anonymous information about your use of our website. Examples of this anonymous information are: your browser type, your device’s operating system, the date and time of your access to our website, geographical information, browser history, and device type. This is not an exhaustive list of the types of passive non-PII we may collect; it merely provides examples of the kinds of data we may collect.
What do we use your information for?
The PII we collect from you may be used only to communicate with you or in the application process for a job for which you wish to apply.
The non-PII we collect from you may be used in any of the following ways:
To improve our website (we continually strive to improve our website offerings based on the information and feedback we receive from you)
To improve customer service (your information helps us to more effectively respond to your customer service request and support needs)
To comply with applicable legal requirements or industry standards.
We will not link your PII with your non-PII in a way that would serve to identify your behaviors on a personal level. For example, we will not keep a record of how may times you have personally used our website. Instead, we may conglomerate your usage statistics with those of other to looks for trends.
How do we protect your information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information. We use reasonable practices and technologies to safeguard your information against legal intrusion and unauthorized access. No security measures are 100% reliable so we can't warranty the security of your PII.
We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied personal information is transmitted via our Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our database only to be accessed by those authorized with special access rights to our systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.
Do we disclose any information to outside parties?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your PII.
We may, however, disclose your PII to trusted third-party service providers who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you. These trusted service providers are not allowed to use your PII for any purposes other than those to which they have been entrusted. We shall use reasonable efforts to ensure these service providers hold your PII in confidence and we shall only disclose your PII to third parties that we believe in good faith practice acceptable privacy and security measures.
We may also release your information when we believe its release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect our or other’s rights, property, or safety.
In addition, we may transfer your PII as part of a sale, merger, acquisition, or other change of control. We may also transfer your PII to protect our legal rights in the unlikely event of a bankruptcy, reorganization, receivership, assignment, or any application of creditor’s rights.
Your non-PII may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
