Challenge Advisory collects personally-identifiable information on certain areas of the Site when users register for or apply for jobs through the Challenge Advisory Recruitment Portal, register for Challenge.org newsletters and alerts, participate in our alumni activities, sign up for conferences and events, and participate in user posting areas (such as bulletin boards, discussion forums and surveys). The personally-identifiable information collected may consist of information that you provide, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, and background information required to apply for a job. For recruiting purposes, the information collected may include other personally identifiable information that you include on your resume and information that you submit as part of your application. In addition, Challenge Advisory collects certain information that you do not visibly enter, such as your IP address, browsing pattern on the Site, click stream data, HTTP protocol elements, and the status of cookies placed on your computer by Challenge Advisory.
Challenge Advisory uses your personally-identifiable information to fulfill your requests for information, publish your letters to the editor or comments, process your requests to participate in conferences and events, evaluate any job applications, recruit personnel, distribute newsletters and alerts to you, personalize content that you view or receive, evaluate and improve our services, and for such other purposes as you may initiate or request. We may keep any of your personally identifiable information on file and use it to contact you.
If you participate in a survey, all of our research results are reported as totals or in other aggregated form, and no information about you as an individual respondent is made public.
You should be aware that whenever you publicly disclose information online, that information could be collected and used by others. Challenge Advisory is not responsible for any action or policies of any third parties who collect information that users publicly disclose in any such forums on the Site.
Challenge Advisory has implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operational security in order to protect personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Only authorized Challenge Advisory personnel and third party vendors are provided access to personally identifiable information, and these employees and vendors are required to treat this information as confidential. Despite these precautions, Challenge Advisory, however, cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will not obtain access to your personally identifiable information.
Challenge Advisory stores personally identifiable information for various purposes as notified to you in this policy. For each of these different purposes, Challenge Advisory only retains the personally identifiable information for so long as it is serving its notified purpose.
