As with most sites, the North Highland web site collects information both directly and indirectly:
Direct collection: This refers to information that you intentionally provide us, such as by completing an online form. An example of this is a candidate who enters information in the North Highland Career Center.
Indirect collection: This refers to information that is collected by the technology on which our web site is built. For example, the internet address of every visitor to northhighland.com is recorded in our internet access logs (allowing us to troubleshoot problems and better defend against internet attacks).
North Highland only collects personally-identifiable information if you choose to provide it. Personally-identifiable information generally includes contact information, such as names, mailing address, e-mail address and telephone number. It may also include resume information.
North Highland will only use personal data upon your consent and for the purpose that was specified when the data was collected. Information entered into the North Highland Career Center may be kept on file for future reference, and it may be shared with North Highland’s subsidiaries and affiliates. Upon the closing of the North Highland web site, North Highland will cease to collect or use personal data.
North Highland takes both technical and organizational steps to protect against the loss, misuse, or unauthorized alteration of personally-identifiable information collected through this web site. However, any information transferred across the internet has the potential to be accessed during transmission by unauthorized parties, and North Highland does not warrant the security of data transmissions over the internet.
