What information do we collect?

Our “Contact” and “Resume Submission” forms collect information such as your name, company name, e-mail address, and phone number. If you choose to correspond further with us via e-mail, we may retain the content of your e-mail messages together with your e-mail address and our responses.

What about website usage information?

Similar to other commercial websites, our website utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” (see explanation below, “What are cookies?”) and web server logs to collect information about how our website is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent on our website, and the websites visited just before and just after our website. This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual.

What are cookies?

Cookies are a feature of web browser software that allows web servers to recognize the computer used to access a website. Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored by a user’s web browser on the user’s hard drive. Cookies can remember what information a user accesses on one web page to simplify subsequent interactions with that website by the same user, or to use the information to streamline the user’s transactions on related web pages. This makes it easier for a user to move from web page to web page and to complete commercial transactions over the Internet. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalized.

Cookies also help us collect important business and technical statistics. The information in the cookies lets us trace the paths followed by users to our website as they move from one page to another. Web server logs enable us to count how many people visit our website and evaluate our website’s visitor capacity. We do not use these technologies to capture your individual e-mail address or any personal information about you.

How do we use the information we collect from cookies?

We use website browser software tools such as cookies and web server logs to gather information about our website users’ browsing activities. This data is used to inform future design decisions and helps us to continually improve our website and better serve our clients and prospective business partners.

How do we use the information you provide?

Broadly speaking, we use personal information for purposes of managing our business: developing relationships with clients and prospective partners; recruiting new talent; notifying you about important services, resources and information we think you will find valuable.

The services employed to distribute such communications are designed to safeguard the security and privacy of your personal information. You will be given the opportunity with each communication to notify us of your desire not to receive ongoing communications.

Gagen MacDonald will never sell, rent, exchange or share your data with any third-parties without your expressed permission, unless required by law.
