What Personal Data does EXPLORE collect through their products?
In general, EXPLORE collects the minimal amount of information required to ensure safe, fair and complete candidate management and communication is possible.
EXPLORE will only collect Personal Data (such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, employer name, employer address or products and operating systems you use) when it is voluntarily made available to us by you or your organisation.
How might we use Personal Data collected?
We will use this information to provide EXPLORE services to you. We will also use this information to comply with your request for information. For example, if you request technical support assistance, we may ask who you are, which services you are using, and in what computer system environment you are using the services in order to respond to your request as efficiently and effectively as possible.
In addition, from time to time, we may refer to your Personal Data to better understand your needs and how we can improve our products and services. We may use that information to contact you.
We will not sell or otherwise transfer the Personal Data you provide to any third party unless:
- otherwise disclosed to you when you submit your information;
- in connection with the sale of all or substantially all of the assets of a business division of EXPLORE;
- to provide needed information to our Agents, resellers, partners and contractors who may provide products and/or services to you;
- as necessary for processing your credit card transactions or support transactions; or
- for compliance with possible legal or governmental disclosure requirements.
We do not rent, sell or otherwise share information that we gather about our website visitors with outside parties. The bottom line is that all the information that you provide to us will remain with EXPLORE and/or its Agents, resellers, contractors and alliance partners.
We use information in aggregate form to track the total number of visitors to our websites, the number of visitors to each page of our websites, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers. No Personal Data is revealed to us in this process.
How might you direct or restrict the use of your information?
We will provide you with the opportunity to opt-out of (1) any disclosure of your Personal Data to any third party that is not authorized to receive such data (e.g. our Agents); or (2) the use of that data for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected from, or subsequently authorized by you.
Some Personal Data is considered Sensitive Personal Data, such as any Personal Data that reveals race, ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, information that concerns health or sex life, and information about criminal or administrative proceedings and sanctions. We will not disclose Sensitive Personal Data to a third party that is not our Agent or use Sensitive Personal Data for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected from, or subsequently authorized by, you unless we have received your affirmative and explicit consent to do so (opt-in).
For additional information regarding how you may restrict the use of your Personal Data please contact us at [email protected]
What steps will we take before transferring your information to third parties?
How can you access or correct the information held about you?
Upon request, we will provide you with reasonable access to the Personal Data that we hold about you except where the burden or expense of providing this access would be disproportionate to the risks to your privacy in the case in question, or where the rights of persons other than you would be violated by the provision of such access.
We will take reasonable steps to enable you to correct, amend or delete Personal Data related to you in our possession and control that is inaccurate or incomplete.
How will your information be protected?
EXPLORE is committed to protecting the Personal Data entrusted to us. We have implemented appropriate physical, electronic and administrative procedures to safeguard and secure this information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration and destruction.
We will take special care to ensure the security of Sensitive Personal Data. We will use Personal Data only in a way that is compatible with and relevant to the purpose for which it was collected or authorized by you or for other compatible purposes.
To the extent necessary for those purposes, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Data is relevant to its intended use, accurate, complete, current and reliable for its intended use.
