5. Cookies and Related Technologies

As noted above, we use cookies and other technologies (like pixels, tags, and web beacons) when you interact with our Sites to improve their quality, store browsing preferences, and track usage trends, among other things. For these technologies to work, third parties collect and/or receive information from our Sites and elsewhere on the internet. These third parties typically collect information in the aggregate and in a way that does not personally identify you

Among other things, we use cookies from Google including Google Analytics. You can learn more about how those cookies work by visiting “How Google uses information from sites or apps that use our services,” located at https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites. We also may use, from time to time, Facebook Advertising, Facebook Pixel Re-Marketing, and related technologies. These features allow us to measure the effectiveness of our Facebook ads. The data collected is usually in the aggregate such that we cannot see personal information of individual users but rather general demographic information that does not identify you. However, as this data is stored and processed by Facebook, Facebook may link this information to your Facebook account and also use it for its own promotional purposes, in accordance with Facebook’s Data Usage Policy located at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. You can opt-out of Facebook’s use of cookies and Facebook Pixel Re-Marketing through settings on your Facebook Account.

We do not control cookies in third party ads, and you are encouraged to check the privacy policies of advertisers and/or ad services to learn about their use of cookies and other technology. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, most browsers allow you to automatically decline cookies or be given the choice of declining or accepting the transfer to your computer of a particular cookie (or cookies) from a particular site. Please note, however, if you do not accept necessary cookies, some website features or services may not function properly. To find out more about cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/.

We recruit and access our Sitess globally, and to provide our services we may transfer your data to other countries and other regions outside of where you are located, such as Korea, the E.U., the U.K., the U.S., Canada, India, and Singapore. However, we may transfer your data to other countries and/or regions to operate the Site and/or to meet legal requirement. By using our Sites and/or applying for a position, if applicable, you acknowledge that your personal information may be processed in a location outside of your own.

For residents of the European Economic Area (“EEA”), if we transfer your data outside of the EEA to a country that is not recognized by the European Commission as ensuring an adequate level of data protection, we endeavor to apply suitable measures to safeguard your personal data in accordance with applicable data protection and privacy laws. These safeguards may include data transfer agreements implementing standard contractual clauses (a form of data transfer agreement pre-approved by the European Commission as providing adequate safeguards for personal data). You may ask for a copy of such appropriate measures by contacting us as set out in this Privacy Policy. We otherwise transfer personal data with consent; to perform a contract with you; or to fulfill a compelling legitimate interest in a manner that does not outweigh your rights and freedoms.

If you visit a third-party website that is linked to our Sites, you should consult that site’s privacy policy before providing any personal information.

Our security controls are designed to maintain data confidentiality and integrity, and give us appropriate access to your data. Among other things, we update and test our security technology on an ongoing basis. We restrict access to your personal data to those employees who need to know that information to provide benefits or services to you. We use professional third party service providers and data centers to provide our Sites, and enter into confidentiality agreements with them where appropriate. Those service providers and data centers implement industry-standard measures to protect the security of the personal information we collect, such as SSL (Secure Socket Layers), firewalls, digital certificates, and encryption.
