Ursus Inc. understands the importance of maintaining the confidentiality of your personal information and is committed to safeguarding the privacy of the users (including individuals and organizations) of our Ursus Web sites. Please read the following information that outlines our commitment to privacy and how Ursus will treat your personal information as you use this application.
Collection and Use of Information
When you use or register with this site, Ursus may collect personal information from you including profile information (name, e-mail address, address, zip code, telephone number) and, if applicable, employment information (desired specialty, title, geographic location, compensation). The profile information may be stored indefinitely and may be collected and processed in one or more databases maintained directly or indirectly by Ursus. From time to time, Ursus may also ask you for other information via surveys, such as information regarding your areas of interest, your likes and dislikes regarding the site, your career goals, services that you would like offered on this site, and other such information that will help us improve the service and features made available to you on this site.
As a user of this site, you have the option of submitting or posting your resume to the site in order to apply for an employment opportunity online. By doing so, your resume may be forwarded, transmitted, or ported to third-party clients of Ursus or other third parties for consideration (which may include recruiters or placement consultants).
Ursus collects information about use of this site, such as the pages users visit most frequently, the services users access the most, and the links to other sites that users most often visit. Ursus only uses such data in the aggregate. This information helps us determine what is most beneficial for our users, and how we can improve the services and features provided to the users of our site. We may share this collected information with other sites linked to Ursus.com, but only in the aggregate, so that they too may understand how this site is used, in order to improve the services and features provided to you. Such aggregate information will never contain any identifiable personal information.
An IP (Internet Protocol) address is assigned to your computer each time you establish a connection on the Internet. Ursus uses your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to otherwise administer this site.
Ursus may use “cookies” to maintain and track your sessions on this site.
Disclosure of Information
Ursus may disclose personal information to third parties to perform its services or to comply with applicable laws, legal process served on Ursus, or in legal matters or proceedings where (i) such information is deemed relevant by Ursus, (ii) where Ursus believes that the law requires such disclosure, (iii) where Ursus believes such disclosure is necessary to protect its rights or property or (iv) where Ursus believes such disclose is necessary to prevent a crime, protect the public and/or Ursus personnel, or protect national security. To the extent that you include your personal information (including e-mail address) on any resume you submit or post to the site, Ursus cannot control the use of such information by third-party clients of Ursus or third-party recruiters or placement consultants that obtain your resume from Ursus.
In the event that you transmit e-mail, instant messages or any other message, information, feedback, data, question, comments, suggestions or other items to this site (including the Ursus.com domain), or to any related or affiliated site, such communication shall become the property of Ursus and may be utilized by Ursus in connection with its operations, services and business, and Ursus shall have the unrestricted right to any ideas, concepts, know-how, software, documentation, diagrams, drawings, or techniques contained in your communication in any manner and for any purpose whatsoever including, but not limited to, developing, creating, or marketing our products and services.
Security and Internet Use Considerations
Remember to close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Ursus cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we will endeavor to protect it on our systems by using secure servers behind a firewall.
If at any time you have questions or concerns about Ursus’s privacy commitment or anything contained in this Privacy Statement, please feel free to call +1.415.529.4560 to speak to one of our representatives.
