This Privacy Policy describes how LeQuest handles personal information that you provide to us or that we collect and maintain about you in connection with your use of our website and any other proprietary websites we may launch from time to time and the services made available through the Websites (“Services”). By using the Services or accessing our Websites, you are acknowledging that you have read and understood this Privacy Policy and consent to the practices described herein.

1. Scope of policy.

This Privacy Policy applies only to information you provide to us online or that we collect from you while visiting or using our Websites or Services. It does not apply to information we obtain offline or through other means. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies LeQuest does not own or control or operators of third party websites that you may access from the Websites or from which you may access the Websites.

2. What information we collect and use.

a) We receive and store information that you voluntarily provide when using the Websites and the Services. For example, when you subscribe to our Services, we require you to provide personal information including your name, email address, company affiliation, and other basic contact information. You may also provide additional personal information to us when you voluntarily communicate with us, such as when you request information, register for email updates, submit application for employment, or when you post information to the user content portion of the Websites.

b) In addition to the information you voluntarily provide to us, we automatically record information from your Internet browser, including your IP address (the Internet address of your PC), your computer’s name, the type and version of your web browser, the Internet addresses of the sites from which you access the Websites (referring addresses) and other generally-accepted log information. We may also record  the presence of LeQuest  software or other third party software on your computer, page views (hit counts) and other statistical and tracking information, which are aggregated with website utilization information from other users in order to understand how our Websites are being used. One or more of the above activities may also be carried out by third parties we have engaged to host certain portions or functions of or otherwise render services in connection with our Websites, such as resume submission, or operating a webcast on our behalf.

c) While accessing and operating LeQuest product, the LeQuest software may record general statistical and tracking information, such as the date and time a client accesses his or her product and the time spent using it. The LeQuest software transfers this information to LeQuest Data’s servers, and such information is used exclusively for internal resource management purposes.

d) Cookies. We use common website management technologies called cookies. A cookie is a small data file, which often includes a unique but non-identifying code that is sent to your browser from a website’s computers and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies can be used to provide you with a tailored user experience and to make it easier for you to use the Websites upon a future visit. LeQuest will also use cookies to recognize you when you return to our Websites.

You should review the online documentation of your browser or consult with the provider of your browser for instructions on how to disable cookies. If you disable cookies on your computer, some parts of our Websites may not be available to you or may not function as intended.

e) Referring Sites. Websites that contain links to our Websites are known as “referring sites.” When you enter our Websites from a referring site, we automatically collect information that identifies the referring site and use this information to analyze which third party services send visitors to our Websites and to present appropriate content to our potential customers. LeQuest tabulates referrer information on an aggregate basis to identify Websites trends and traffic patterns.
