Thaxton Leadership - Privacy Notice
The Company (“we” or “us” or “our”) is committed to taking reasonable steps to protect your privacy online and manage your information responsibly. This Privacy Notice is intended to notify you of our online privacy practices, the type of information that may be collected and stored, how the information is used, with whom the information may be shared, what choices are available to you regarding the collection, use and distribution of the information, what kind of security procedures are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control, and who to contact with questions or concerns.
This Privacy Notice does NOT apply to other websites to which we may otherwise link, or to other companies, third-party vendors who provide services to us, or entities who might be listed as third-party contacts on this Website, each of which may be governed by their own privacy policies. This Privacy Notice also does not apply to information we may obtain from other sources about you. By using the Website and/or by contacting us and providing any personal information, you consent to the collection, transfer, storage, disclosure and use of information by us in accordance with this Privacy Notice. If we decide to change our Privacy Notice, we will post those changes on this page.
Why We Collect Information
We collect personal information because it helps us improve our products and services and it helps the end user with efficiency.
How We Collect Information
We collect information in three primary ways:
1. You Give Us Information: We collect information from you when you submit it to us through the Website. Submitting information through the Website would include, for example, when you send us an e-mail using a link or e-mail address provided on the Website; calling us at a number provided on the Website, submitting a resume or CV through the Website, logging in through the Website or submitting/entering any information through the Website.
3. We Collect Information from Other Sources: We may obtain information about you from outside sources. For example, we may obtain commercially available information about you from third parties or purchase e-mail lists from third parties for advertising and marketing purposes
What Information We Collect
We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal data.
Examples include: Information about your visits to and use of the Website, and information you provide to us via the Website. Even if you do not submit personal information through the Website, we may gather navigational information about where visitors go on the Website and information about the technical efficiencies of our Website and services (i.e., time to connect to the Website, time to download pages, etc.) Collecting this information allows us to see which areas of our Website are most visited and helps us better understand the user experience. Additionally, collecting this information helps us improve the quality of the Website by recognizing and delivering more of the features, areas, and services our visitors prefer. In this process of gathering information, we may collect personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information (for example, domain type, browser type and version, service provider and IP address, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and click-stream data).
How We Use the Information We Collect
We use the information we collect in a variety of ways. Generally, using all of the above mentioned, and similar type tools, we may collect, aggregate, and use de-identified information from or about you such as data about the type of browser and operating system used, your geographical location, which webpages you view, the time and duration of your visits to our site, the search queries you may use on this site and any other submissions you may make, whether you clicked on any items or links on the site, whether you have clicked on any links in any emails sent from us, or third-parties on our behalf, whether you have chosen to opt-out of certain services or information sharing, and whether you have viewed or ordered certain products or services.
We may use the information we collect internally in our business for many business purposes, such as to: (i) provide the services or information you may seek; (ii) analyze trends and conduct research; (iii) provide support and respond to questions from our users, Website visitors and customers; (iv) improve our Website or services; (v) learn about users’ and customers’ needs; (vi) contact users for research, informational, and marketing purposes, including customizing our Website for you based upon your information and browsing habits; (vii) track traffic patterns and site usage; (viii) provide customer service and technical support; (ix) correlate information with other commercially available information to identify demographics and preferences to assist us and our customers in our research and marketing efforts; (x) provide specific relevant marketing, promotional, or other information to you; (xi) address information security and/or privacy practices, network functioning, engineering, and troubleshooting issues; (xii) investigate claims and/or legal actions, violations of law or agreements, and compliance with relevant applicable laws and legal process; (xiii) comply with law, or based on our good faith belief that it is necessary to conform or comply with the law, or otherwise to disclose information to prevent fraud to reduce credit risks, to cooperate with police and other governmental authorities, or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to the Website, our partners or customers, or the public; and (xiv) process or engage in a sale of all or part of our business, or if we go through a reorganization or merger. We may also use your personally identifiable information to contact you in ways other than e-mail or regular mail, such as via telephone contact or facsimile. All use of personally identifiable information will be as permitted by applicable law
If the Company sells its business or if substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that the Company goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of the Company may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this Privacy Notice.
Your Choices about the Information We Collect
If you do not consent to the way in which we may use your personal information, please do not submit any personal information to us. Please note that if you do not provide us with certain personal information the Company may be unable to provide you with its services, or those services may not be as good as they otherwise could be.
If you do not wish to receive other marketing materials from us and/or if you do not want us to share your personal information with other entities as stated in this Privacy Notice, please provide us with your exact name and address and advise us that you wish to opt-out for information sharing or receiving information from us or both as the case may be. Please note that de-identified and aggregate data including your personal information may still be shared, but it will not be identified or identifiable to you. Please direct your opt-out request to the following contacts:
