In this case, our Web server may collect the name, address, the IP address and domain you used to access this Site, the type and version of browser and operating system you are using, and the web site you came from and visit next. This information is used by us and our business partners to measure the number of visits, average time spent, page views, and other statistics about visitors to this Site in general. We may also use this data to monitor site performance for systems administration purposes, to make this Site easier and more convenient to use and to report information in aggregate form to our advisers (e.g. how many visitors log in to this Site).
Tracking user preferences also helps us serve you targeted advertising. Targeted advertisements are probably more interesting for you and are more productive for our advertisers.
Personal Information Collection, Use And Distribution To Third Parties Generally
There are times when we may ask you for or you may choose to provide information about yourself or your business to assist us in meeting your various needs. This information may be used for the following purposes: answering your questions, providing you with services you have requested, giving producers and developers of the Site information that is useful in determining appropriate new features, content and services, to provide advertisers with aggregate, not individual, information about our customers, or informing you of additional services or job opportunities provided by Skill People or by our business partners, that may interest you.
To provide these services, we may need to ask you directly to provide, among other things, your name, mailing address, postal code, email address and phone number ("Registration Information"). You may also elect to apply on-line to a job posting (free of charge) OR to purchase one of our services. Purchasing services with us may require us to gather additional personal information (including credit or debit card information, where appropriate).
At times, we also conduct on-line surveys to better understand the needs, profiles, and experience of our visitors. You will be given the option to participate in such surveys. Unless you request to receive the results of the survey via email, no personal information is requested during such surveys and all information is used on an aggregated basis only. If, during the registration process, you indicate you would like us to keep you updated on new site developments and information about our services or about offerings from Skill People, we will send you these updates by email.
If you contact Skill People we may keep a record of that correspondence. We do not collect the email addresses of those who communicate with Skill People via email. We use the information provided only so that we may respond to the email. We do not knowingly solicit information from children and we do not knowingly market our services to children.
When you provide personal information to us, we may communicate and disclose it to third parties for the purpose of fulfilling, servicing and completing your requests and the transactions related to it. These third parties may be in the UK or in other parts of the world. By registering with Skill People, you agree that your information may be shared with third parties for the purpose of fulfilling, servicing and completing your requests and transactions related to it.
We may also aggregate statistics that we gather about the visitors to the Site, sales, traffic patterns, and services and provide these statistics to third parties; however, when we do, these statistics will not include any personal information that identifies individuals.
