Types of Personal Information Collected
Viele Consulting Group collects and maintains personal information provided to us by individuals who register with our Site, subscribe to our services or who otherwise send us information. Such information may include a user’s name, business or home address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address, billing information, educational background, employment history, job search information, goals and milestones, resumes, confidential documents, and professional experience, or any other information that a user may give us.
We also collect and store the Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses of individuals that visit our Sites. An IP address provides general statistical information, such as browsing activity, areas of interest on the Sites, general demographic information and other basic information that we will use for system administration. We use such information to make our Sites more interesting and useful to you.
Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
We use the personal information that you disclose to us to allow you to use the Sites, perform the services that you have requested of us, respond to your inquiries and support our customer relationship with you. We may also use your personal information to contact you about updates, industry news and new services.
We also use the information provided through our Site to analyze trends and statistics, to update and improve our Site and the services that we provide. In addition, if you request to be put on our promotional mailing list, we will use the information that you give us to send you announcements and other materials from time to time. Each e-mail you receive from us will give you the option to unsubscribe from our mailing list.
We do not sell or rent personally identifiable information to third parties for marketing purposes.
Financial information provided in connection with subscribing to our services will only be disclosed to third party financial institutions as necessary to process your subscription. We reserve the right to also provide personal information to our employees, contractors, agents and designees to the extent necessary to enable them to perform certain websites-related services (such as web hosting or maintenance services) on our behalf. We cannot guarantee, however, that once disclosed, other parties will not gain access to this information.
We may also disclose information that we maintain when required to do so by law or where reasonably necessary to protect our rights or a third party’s rights, for example, in response to a court order, a subpoena, a request by a law enforcement agency or to respond to claims that any content violates the rights of any third party. We also reserve the right to disclose the information to any third party to prevent, investigate, detect or prosecute criminal offences or attacks on the technical integrity of our websites or our network; and to protect the rights, property and safety of our firm, the users of our websites and the public.
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act imposes certain requirements on websites directed at children under 13 that collect information on those children, and on websites that knowingly collect information on children under 13. Our Site is not directed at children under 13 and does not knowingly collect any personal information from children under 13.
Protection of Personal Information
We make reasonable efforts to maintain the security, integrity and privacy of any personal information you choose to give us. We have security technology and procedures in place to ensure that all information stored on our database is secured against unauthorized access and use.
Information that you voluntarily make available for viewing by third parties online – for example in connection with job or resume postings, blogs, discussion forums, or other community or social networking areas of our Sites – can be seen, collected and used by others besides us. We are not responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information. Although we attempt to limit access to our Sites to legitimate users, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized parties will not gain access. We also cannot control how users store, transfer or use information gathered from our Sites, so you should ensure that you do not post sensitive information to the Sites.
Security of Personal Information on Other Websites
Our Sites may contain links to websites operated by third parties that are not under our control or supervision. Neither we nor our employees, agents or representatives are responsible for the privacy practices of these sites. These websites may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies, or no policies at all. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of the other websites to see how your personal information will be handled on the third party sites before providing them with your personal information.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Changes to the Personal Information We Have Collected
Registered users may update, correct or delete their registration profile information online through the manage account features available on our Sites. Please be aware, however, that even if you delete information from your account, we may, for a time, retain residual information about you in backup and/or archival copies of our database.
