PRIVACY POLICY

Updated: February 15, 2020

1.  Overview

Clear Consults values your privacy and we’ve developed this Privacy Policy so you know what information we collect about you, how we use it, who we share it with, how we store it, and how you can control it. 

2.  Collection and Uses of Information

Clear Consults and our affiliates may collect information about you when you use our applications, websites, other products and services, and through other interactions and communications you have with us (collectively "Services"). We use this information to provide, maintain, protect, and improve our Services.

2.1  Personal Information

We may collect "Personal Information", which is data that you provide that could reasonably be used to identify you, such as your name, phone number, email address, mailing address, billing information, or other similar data. You are not required to provide Personal Information, but if you choose not to provide it, we may be unable to deliver our services.

2.2  Content Information

We may collect “Content Information”, which is data that you create and provide while using our Services, such as information about your curriculum vitae, resume, surveys, meetings, messages, uploaded files, actions you take, and other similar types of information. We use Content Information to display to consultants who you have authorized to access such information. 

2.3  Technical Information

We may collect “Technical Information”, which is data about your usage of our Services, such as your IP address, device, browser, and other similar types of information contained in server logs and related sources. We use Technical Information to understand how you and other users are using and interacting with our Services, so we can optimize and improve our Services. We also use this information to protect you and other users from external and inside security threats, and to resolve technical issues that inevitably arise in the context of software development.

2.4  Cookie Information

We may collect information through the use of "cookies" or other similar technologies. We use this information to make your life easier by allowing our Servers to remember your preferences and details you've already entered so you don't have to enter the same information twice and for other similar purposes. We never use cookies to track your web browsing activity after you've left our website and most browsers will allow you to block cookies in the settings options if you'd prefer not to use them.

2.5  Third-Party Information

We may collect and combine information about you from third-party sources in order to personalize and enhance our Services. 

3.  Protection of Information

We are serious about protecting your information and have taken reasonable steps to protect your information from both external and internal security threats.

3.2  Data Encryption

We employ a variety of technical safeguards to protect your information. We encrypt your stored data (data at rest).

3.3  Employee Security

We limit internal access to our Services so employees and consultants can only access information that they need to know. We require all employees and consultants to sign non-disclosure agreements and all consultants are required to meet minimum privacy standards. 

3.4  Vendor Security

We require third-party vendors to sign non-disclosure agreements and/or to meet certain minimum privacy standards. We have also sought to limit our reliance on third-party vendors to the maximum extent possible in order to minimize external risks to your information.
