Children should always get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, email addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else. We won't knowingly allow anyone under 13 to provide us any personally identifying information.
The information gathered by WorkReady™ falls into two categories: (1) information supplied by visitors to the site when they register or initiate transactions, and (2) tracking information gathered as visitors navigate through the WorkReady™site. Third party providers featured on or linked to by our website, such as vendors of products and services offered through our site, may be gathering the same kinds of information.
To make use of certain features on our site, visitors need to provide limited information about themselves and their interests so that we can tailor the information we provide to their needs. For example, to help you find the job you want close to home, we need to know your postal code and what kind of job your looking for what skill. We ask you to provide this information when you perform a search. From time to time, WorkReady™ may offer sweepstakes or other promotions on the site. If you enter a sweepstakes or promotional contest, you'll have to provide information about yourself (such as your name, address, and email address) so that we can contact you if you win. We may share this information with any co-sponsor of the contest (identified in the contest rules). If you don't want us to collect the information requested in the contest registration form or to provide it to contest co-sponsors, please do not enter the contest.
If you provide us your email address, we'll send you our monthly newsletter, and, from time to time, other offers we think may be of interest to you. Though we hope you'll find these informative and useful, if you don't, you can always unsubscribe by following the simple instructions included in each email. And you can opt out of receiving the newsletter or other emails at all by indicating, at the time you give us your email address, that you'd prefer not to get our newsletter or receive these offers.
Our web server automatically collects some information about you when you request pages from our server, including your IP address. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers connected to the Internet to identify your computer so that data (such as the web pages you request) can be sent to you. Your IP address does not tell us who you are.
We may occasionally release information about our visitors when release is appropriate to comply with law, to enforce our Visitor Agreement, or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to our site, the public or WorkReady™. As our business grows, we may buy or sell various assets. In the unlikely event that WorkReady™ or substantially all of its assets are acquired by another company, information on our visitors would be among the transferred assets.
All information gathered on the WorkReady™ website is encrypted for storage within a WorkReady™ controlled database. However, as effective as encryption technology is, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply won't be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. And, of course, any information you include in a message you post to any chatroom, forum or other public posting area is available to anyone with Internet access. If you don't want people to know your email address, for example, don't include it in any message you post publicly.
