2.  Collection, Use, and Sharing of Information We collect two types of information from visitors to our website:  (1) traffic data, which shows, for example, how many times and which pages are visited, but does not contain personally identifying information; and (2) personal information, which visitors knowingly and voluntarily choose to disclose. Traffic data is collected by data files such as “cookies” and log files. A “cookie” is a small text file placed on a user’s computer hard drive, which allows a website to identify a particular computer when it returns to the site. Personal information includes data such as your name, e-maile-mail address, and other contact information, work experience, educational history, and other resume information, and any login ID or profile information created or submitted by you. If you log in to our website and create a profile, we may use your information to provide you with information regarding employment opportunities and career-related information, and to otherwise provide you with requested information or services. Further details on the collection and use of the information are below.

a.  Traffic Data. When you visit this website we automatically collect information about your computer, server, and browser. This does not personally identify you.
