1. WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
CHILDREN’S ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT COMPLIANCE
We do not collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age. The Site and our services are all directed to people who are at least 13 years old or older. If you are under the age of 13, you are not authorized to use the Site.
a) Information You Give Us
We collect personal information that you voluntarily share with us through the Site. For example, we collect information from you when you apply for an open position with one of the Ford Agency’s clients through the Site.
The personal information you might provide us may include:
Your first and last name
Contact information, including telephone number, email address, and mailing address
Employment, and professional and academic educational history
Language proficiency, and other job-related skills
Professional licenses and certifications
Information about the position being applied for
Any other information you choose to provide The Ford Agency, through a CV, résumé, cover letter or otherwise
b) Information We Collect Through Technology On The Site
We collect information through technology to enhance our ability to serve you. When you access and use the Site, the Ford Agency and, in some cases, our third-party service providers collect information about how you interact with the Site. We describe below methods we use to collect information through technology.
IP Address And Other Connection Information
When you visit the Site, we collect your device identifier, browser information, and Internet Protocol (IP) address. An IP address is often associated with the portal you used to enter the Internet, like your Internet service provider (ISP), company, association, or university. While an IP address may reveal your ISP or geographic area, we cannot determine your identity solely based upon your IP address. We do not link your personal information to device identifier information, browser information, and IP addresses.
If you prefer, you can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off cookies by adjusting your browser settings. If you turn off your cookies, some of the features on the Site may not function properly.
We include small graphic images or other web programming code, called web beacons (also known as "pixel tags", “web bugs” or "clear GIFs"), on the Site. The web beacons are minute graphics with a unique identifier. They are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored in a user's computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.
Some web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” feature (DNT) that signals to the websites that you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Many websites and applications, including our Site, do not currently respond to web browser DNT signals because such signals are not yet uniform. For more information about DNT signals, please visit http://allaboutdnt.com.
We may track your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. For example, we might use web beacons to help us determine what links or advertisers brought you to our Site. We then track your activities on our Site. We do not let third parties use our website to track your online activities across sites and over time.

This includes exchanging personal information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
Corporate Transactions: We reserve the right to disclose and transfer your data, including your personal information:
To a subsequent owner, co-owner, or operator of the Site or successor database.
In connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, the sale of substantially all of our membership interests and/or assets or other corporate change, including to any prospective purchasers.
4. HOW WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
The security and confidentiality of your personal information is important to us. We have technical, administrative, and physical security measures in place to protect your personal information from unauthorized access or disclosure and improper use.
Please note that despite our reasonable efforts, no security measure is ever perfect or impenetrable, so we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information.
