A. Personal Information You Provide. We obtain personally identifiable information about you through our Site only when you elect to transmit such information to us. If you opt to make such a request, you will be asked for your name, email address, and other personally identifying information.

Finally, we may also obtain personally identifiable information about you when you transmit such information to us via email through the Site.
We will use all of this information for the purposes for which it was provided. Specifically, information provided in an application for employment will be used in connection with your actual or possible work placement as well as our assessment of your prospects and suitability; and your email address is used to correspond with you in response to an email that you send to us through the Site.

We use physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards to assist us with endeavoring to prevent unauthorized access to our systems and maintaining data accuracy on our systems.
