Please read this policy carefully. Should you have any questions about this policy or our data collection, use and disclosure practices, please contact us at the address below.
The term "personal information" as used throughout this policy, applies to any information that identifies or that is used by or on behalf of The RightThing to identify a particular individual.
How does The RightThing collect personal information online?
The RightThing collects personal information online through Web sites and other online resources. The RightThing also offers online resources in collaboration with other online service providers, from which The RightThing may receive personal information about users of such resources. These online collaborations are governed by agreements that require specified measures concerning the protection of personal information. Individuals may access many parts of our Web sites without disclosing any personal information. There are two methods that The RightThing uses to collect personal information online:
1. Information that you provide: The RightThing collects personal information and other data that you may enter into forms or data fields on our Web sites. Such information may include, but not be limited to, contact information (such as your name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number, user ID and password), date of birth, professional credentials, hobbies and interests.
2. Information collected from your computer or other electronic device:
Some of our Web sites and other online resources use tracking technologies, such as cookies to provide additional functionality that enables you to use these resources more effectively. The RightThing uses tracking technologies in ways that do not identify you personally, such as to track accurately numbers of users or referring sites or advertisements to our online resources. The RightThing may use other companies to deliver e-mail communications on our behalf. The RightThing does not control the tracking technologies used by these other companies. If you want to limit anonymous data collection through tracking technologies, please consider the options described below.
In some cases, The RightThing may use tracking technologies in ways that identify you personally, but only after you have entered personal information into a form or data field on our Web sites, or where we have registered you to use our online resources by providing a user ID and password based on information validated through other offline interactions with you. We may use tracking technologies to remember your personal preferences and selections, such as personal information that you have entered into data fields on our Web sites, answers that you have provided in response to our surveys, or sections of our Web sites that you visit frequently. You may choose whether or not you want The RightThing to use tracking technologies to remember you, and/or to provide additional personalized services to you. If you want to limit data collection through tracking technologies, please consider the options described below.
How We Keep Your Information Secure
We use advanced security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Specifically, we use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology for the areas of our site where we ask you to provide personally identifiable information. SSL technology guarantees that the personal information you give us will be transmitted safely because the information is encrypted. Encryption involves systematically scrambling numbers and letters so that if a third party were intercept a packet of information, they would not be able to make sense of it. Although encryption slows the process of sending information across the Internet, it does provide additional security for that information.
You can tell you have entered a secured area when you look at the Universal Resource Locator (URL) in your browser's address bar and see that it has "https://" before the rest of the Web address. The "s" means that the page is hosted from a secured server. We use secured servers for our Candidate Portal pages, and your Account pages. Unsecured pages have URLs that begin with "http://" (without the "s").
You may on occasion encounter a standard warning that many browsers display when a visitor moves from a "secured" page to an "unsecured" page. When you encounter such a warning on our Web site, it usually means that you are moving from an "https://" to an "http://" page. If you see other browser warnings or error messages concerning the security of our site, please Contact Us. Include the specific wording you saw and the URL where you encountered the message. Providing us with these details helps us to know if you have encountered a technical difficulty or a standard warning like the one described above.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small data file that is sent by Web servers to your computer’s hard drive, where your Internet browser files are kept. Cookies enable Web sites to store small bits of information on your computer and retrieve that information at a later time. The RightThing uses two types of cookies: session cookies, which are temporary cookies that are erased from your computer’s memory when you close your Internet browser or turn your computer off, and persistent cookies, which exist on your computer’s hard drive until they expire, unless you delete them at an earlier time.
