We collect the following Personal Information that you submit to us voluntarily: When you contact us by e-mail with an inquiry, or to apply for a position at Pugh Associates, we will collect your name, e-mail address and any information contained in the e-mail you send us, as well as any documents and materials attached to such e-mail. When you provide us with feedback, we will collect your e-mail address and the feedback that you submit. We collect any information, including Personal Information that you voluntarily provide.
An "Internet protocol address "or "IP Address" is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. In some cases your IP Address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer internet access provider, your IP Address probably varies from session to session. We track IP Addresses solely in conjunction with session cookies to analyze our web page flow.
"Cookies" are small pieces of information that a web site sends to your computer's hard drive while you are viewing a web site. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on the Site. Persistent Cookies can be removed by following Internet browser help file directions. If you choose to disable Cookies, some areas of the Site may not work properly.
Our third-party advertising partners and affiliates may employ a software technology called clear gifs, which is also known as Web Beacons/Web Bugs, that help us better manage content on the Site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personally identifiable information.
In general, Personal Information you submit to us is used by us either to respond to inquiries and requests that you make, to enable us to get in contact with you, or to aid us in providing better services and products to you. We will use resumes that you submit to us to consider you for a position at Pugh Associates..
Regardless of any choices you make regarding your Personal Information (as described below), we may disclose your Personal Information if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on us; or (b) to protect and defend our rights or property or those of third parties. Where your Personal Information has been requested by any governmental entity or other third party pursuant to a subpoena or similar legal process, we will notify you as quickly as practicable before providing any such information, unless we are legally prohibited from doing so or we believe in good faith that disclosure is or may be necessary to protect life, avoid serious physical injury or property loss or damage, or to prevent or investigate an ongoing crime. We will undertake efforts to see that any third party with which we share or otherwise disclose personal data is under an obligation to use the personal data solely for the purposes for which the data was disclosed.
We do not intentionally gather Personal Information about visitors who are under the age of 13.
We are committed to protecting the security of your Personal Information. We use a variety of industry-standard security technologies and procedures to help protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Even though we have taken significant steps to ensure that your Personal Information is not intercepted, accessed, used, or disclosed by unauthorized persons, you should know that we cannot fully eliminate security risks associated with Personal Information. We are not responsible for the security of information transmitted through the Internet.
