We at Protech Staffing Services, Inc. (“Protech,” “we,” “us,” “our”) take your privacy seriously and we are committed to respecting and protecting your privacy.
This policy does not apply to websites or practices of companies that Protech does not own or control, or to individuals that Protech does not employ or manage, including providers of third-party software or content.
INFORMATION WE DISPLAY OR COLLECT
Information You Provide to Us
We receive and store any information you knowingly enter on the Services, whether via computer, mobile phone, other wireless device, or that you provide to us in any other way. This includes information provided in your registration process or that you may submit for the purpose of paying for our Services. This information may include, without limitation, personal information such as your name, user name, email address, phone number, billing and financial information corresponding method of payment (e.g. a credit card number and expiration date or a bank account number), and any other information necessary for us to provide our Services (“Personal Information”).
Information Collected Automatically
We receive and store certain types of usage information whenever you interact with the Services; this information is not Personal Information. For example, Protech automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, Protech cookie information, and the page you requested. We also record the details of your activity on the Services, and the number and frequency of visitors to our site and its components.
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer or mobile device to enable our systems to recognize your computer or device and tell us how and when pages in our site are visited and by how many people. Protech cookies do not collect Personal Information, and we do not combine the general information collected through cookies with other Personal Information to tell us who you are or what your username or email address is. Most browsers have an option for turning off the cookie feature, which will prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, as well as (depending on the sophistication of your browser software) allowing you to decide on acceptance of each new cookie in a variety of ways. We strongly recommend that you leave the cookies activated, however, because you may not be able to log in or use many of the Services’ most attractive features without cookies enabled. The Services may also contain electronic images known as web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) and are used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how the Services are used.
WHAT WE MAY USE IT FOR
When you use the Services, you may set up your personal profile, send messages, perform searches and queries, and transmit information through various channels, depending on the category of user (“User Category”) you are registered as, and as permitted by the functionality of the Services. The information we gather from users enables us to personalize and improve our services and allows users to set up a user account and profile through the Services.
The Personal Information you provide is used for such purposes as responding to your requests for certain information and services, customizing your experience, and communicating with you about the Services. We also use Personal Information for creating your individual account, customizing your experience, and for sending you notifications via the Services (“Notifications”).
Your email address
Protech uses this type of aggregate data to enable us to figure out how often users use parts of the Services, so that we can make the Services appealing and relevant to as many users as possible and customize and improve those Services. As part of our use of information, we may provide aggregate information to our partners (in a non-personally identifiable format) about how our users use our site. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use our partners’ services and the Services to help provide you with an optimal online experience. We may link usage information to Personal Information that we collect through the Services, but we will only use this linked information internally (for example, to customize your experience), and will not disclose it in linked format to third parties.
Resale of Personal Information
We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information; we may share your Personal Information and – in personally identifiable form only as described below. Again, please note that references to “Personal Information”.
Businesses We Do Not Control
We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Examples include sending email, analyzing data, processing payment, and providing user services. Unless we tell you differently, Protech’s agents do not have any right to use Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.
If Protech, or some all of its assets were acquired or otherwise transferred, or in the unlikely event that Protech goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information may be transferred to or acquired by a third party.
Protection of Protech and Others
We may release Personal Information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with the law (such as to comply with a subpoena); enforce or apply our Terms of Service and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Protech, our employees, our users, or others. We will use our best efforts to give you notice if we release information for these reasons, but we reserve the right not to so if it imposes an undue burden or expense, requires us to release confidential commercial information, or requires the disclosure of information relating to another person.
Your Protech account Personal Information is protected by a password for your privacy and security. We also use coding practices which take steps to prevent attack on our Services from web browsers and malicious scripts, by processing all actions through several permission verifications checks.
You may help protect against unauthorized access to your account and Personal Information by selecting and protecting your password appropriately and limiting access to your computer and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account.
When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) in our Credit purchasing process, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
Protech endeavors to keep your information private; however, we cannot guarantee security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information. For additional information about the security measures we use in connection with the Services, please contact us at email@example.com.
Opt Out Policy
You can always opt not to disclose information, even though it may be needed to take advantage of certain of our features.
You may request deletion of your Protech account by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that some unrevised information may remain in our records after revision of such information or deletion of your account, or in cached and archived pages. Some information may remain viewable elsewhere to the extent that it was copied or stored by other users. We may use any aggregated data derived from or incorporating your Personal Information after you delete your information, but not in a manner that would identify you personally.
We will retain your Personal Information for as long as your account is active or as long as needed to provide the Services after which time it shall be deleted, subject to our right to retain and use such Personal Information necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and to enforce our agreements.
Protech is not directed at children under 16. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that their child has provided us with information without their consent, they should contact us at email@example.com, and we will delete such information as soon as reasonably practicable.
Application Outside the United States
Protech adheres to the principles of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016, as amendment (commonly known as the General Data Protection Regulations, or “GDPR”) for personal data that it receives from the EU member countries. If you are a citizen of an EU member country and we received personal data about you, you have the following rights and options in addition to those explained elsewhere in this policy:
- Access. You have the right to ask Protech whether it has received personal information about you from the EU and, if so, what data it has received. We will attempt in good faith to respond to your request, but we may not be able to provide the requested information in all situations. For example, we may not be able to provide the information that you request if it imposes an undue burden or expense, requires us to release confidential commercial information, or requires the disclosure of information relating to another person.
- Correction. You have the right to ask Protech to correct the personal information that we receive about you from the EU. Although we will attempt in good faith to respond to requests to correct information, we may not be able to make the correction in all situations. For example, we may not be able to correct information about you if it would impose an undue burden or expense or require us to change information relating to another person.
- Data Portability. You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, in a ‘commonly used and machine-readable format’, and you have the right to transmit that data to another controller.
- Right to be Forgotten. The right to be forgotten entitles you to have Protech erase your personal data, cease further dissemination of the data, and potentially have third parties halt processing of the data.
- Inquiries and Complaints: Protech has committed to attempt to resolve privacy complaints under the GDPR principles. You may direct any inquiries or complaints concerning our GDPR compliance to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond within 30 days.
