VOYlegal understands the importance users of its website(s) and services place on the confidentiality and privacy of such user's personal, confidential and/or private information. VOYlegal is committed to protecting the privacy of such users, and strives to provide a safe, secure and trustworthy user experience.

This Privacy Policy sets forth the online data collection and usage policies and practices that apply to the VOYlegal website(s). By registering or by using any VOYlegal website, a user explicitly accepts, without limitation or qualification, the collection, use and transfer of the personal information provided by such user in the manner described in this Privacy Policy.

VOYlegal collects the following general types of information about users when such users visit and utilize VOYlegal websites: personal information, demographic information, behavioral information, and indirect information. Sometimes VOYlegal collects combinations of all these types of information. In each case, it is indicated on the website whether any personal or demographic data must be provided to use the requested service or not.

Personal information is information that can be used to identify a user, or any other individual to whom the information may relate, personally. VOYlegal does not collect personal information unless a user chooses to provide it. Some examples of personal information that VOYlegal collects in some areas of its website(s), depending on the services utilized by the user, are:

  1. User's name;

  4. Telephone number;

  5. Other Identifying Contact information;

  6. Resumes;

  7. Academic Transcripts;

  8. Current or Past Employers; and

  9. Information about third parties, such as references or contacts, that you provide to us if you have their express written consent to do so.

Demographic information is information that is not unique to a user in the sense that it refers to selected population characteristics, such as a user's geographic location, ZIP code or postal code, age, employment preferences, gender, race or ethnicity, occupation, academic history, career history, interests and favorites.

Behavioral information is information regarding how users use the VOYlegal websites, the areas of the VOYlegal websites that users visit, what services you access, and information about a user's computer hardware and software including a user's IP address, geolocation, browser and operating system type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is necessary for analyzing the use of resources, troubleshootingproblems, preventing fraud, and improving our services.

In addition, VOYlegal may collect indirect information about users when such users use certain VOYlegal or third party services on the VOYlegal websites. For example if a user provides a title of 'Mrs.' VOYlegal will assume such user is female.

VOYlegal may personalize the advertising that users are shown on the VOYlegal sites or other sites with which VOYlegal has a business relationship. In order to provide this personalization, in addition to information VOYlegal collects about users on the VOYlegal sites, VOYlegal acquires information (including personal, demographic, behavioral and indirect information) about users from third parties who provide it.

VOYlegal stores account usage information and certain account establishment information. VOYlegal uses the information gathered on the VOYlegal website(s) for the purposes of providing services, responding to any queries users may have, operating and improving the web site, fostering a positive user experience and delivering the products and services that VOYlegal offers to jobseekers and employers. VOYlegal's services include the display of personalized products, content, job postings and advertising relating to a user's career experience and interests, either on the VOYlegal websites or other websites with which VOYlegal has a business relationship. The information gathered on any VOYlegal website may be shared within the VOYlegal group of companies on a worldwide basis in order to deliver these products and services.

VOYlegal uses information collected from users for its internal processes only and does not disclose such information to unauthorized persons or entities, unless otherwise agreed to by an applicable user or otherwise in accordance with the terms of use of VOYlegal's website(s). VOYlegal recognizes and complies with applicable personal information privacy laws and collects information only for the purpose of administering its placement services and maintaining the accounts of its users. VOYlegal neither sells nor discloses such information to any unaffiliated party for commercial purposes.

VOYlegal covenants to disclose such information only to certain authorized third parties in accordance with the terms and user agreement of the website. However, VOYlegal reserves the right to use this information for any reason necessary to operate or administer its service or the website. If VOYlegal is required by applicable law or regulation or by legal process to make any disclosure otherwise prohibited hereunder, VOYlegal will provide the user with prompt notice of such requirement prior to disclosure. VOYlegal agrees to furnish only that portion of the personal information that, in the advice of our counsel, VOYlegal is legally compelled to disclose and to use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain confidential treatment of such information disclosed.

VOYlegal may disclose certain personal information to authorized third persons or entities as necessary for VOYlegal to conduct its placement services in accordance with the terms and user agreement of the website. VOYlegal intends and agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that no personal information is distributed to third parties except as described herein or as otherwise required by law.

Each user is responsible for ensuring that such user's log-in credentials (such user's username and password) are kept confidential. VOYlegal is committed to protecting the security of its users' personal information. Accordingly, we have implemented various technical safeguards and managerial processes to secure users' personal information, prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data integrity, and help ensure the appropriate use of information. VOYlegal maintains personal information on secured servers and computers. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Notwithstanding such measures, the Internet is an open system, security and safeguards are not 100% effective, and we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. However, given the currently available technology, VOYlegal agrees to use best efforts to employ up to date and adequate security measures to protect its users' personal information.

VOYlegal will not knowingly disclose personally identifying information to third parties except to authorized parties and as described herein or in accordance with the terms of the website. VOYlegal agrees (i) to keep user personal information confidential and not to disclose any such information to any person or entity other than those employed or retained by VOYlegal who have a legitimate need to know such information for the purpose of evaluating the user's account information or in accordance with the terms of use of the website, (ii) to use such information solely for the purposes described herein or reasonably related to the terms of the website, and (iii) not to disclose to any person or entity other than as otherwise described herein any information about the user

VOYlegal may update its Privacy Policy from time to time as reasonably necessary to maintain standards predicated by the industry.

By using this website, users consent to VOYlegal's then currently existing Privacy Policy as of the date of a user's use.
