Non-Personally Identifiable Information is information that cannot alone be used to identify or contact you.

Website log files and Third Party scripts collect information that may include IP addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referral / exit pages, pages viewed, date & time stamps, and other similar information. Log files and Third Party scripts may also collect general demographic information. We use these log files and Third Party scripts to help us analyze traffic patterns & site usage, understand audiences, as well as improve our sites and services.
Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) is information that can be used to identify or contact you. Such information might include your name, mailing address, email address, telephone number, company or job title. PII may be collected when you apply for an employment opportunity on our site, establish a user account for use with our services, register for an event, complete a survey, inquire about employment, correspond with us, or inquire about our service offerings.
Sensitive Personally Identifiable Information is Personal Identifiable Information specifying medical or health conditions, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or information specifying the sex life of an individual. Such information is only collected in the context of an employment relationship as required by law or for employment purposes.
