Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Site, services, features and content (together, the “Service”) and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Site.
When you visit the Site, whether as a registered user or a non-registered user just browsing the Site (any of these, a “Analyst Market User”), our servers may automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser software version or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Site, pages of our Site that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our Site, access times and dates, and other statistics. In addition, we may use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor and analyze this type of information in order to increase our Site’s functionality and user-friendliness, to better tailor it to our visitors’ needs, and to detect suspicious activity. These third party service providers have their own privacy policies addressing how they use such information. We do not treat Log Data as Personal Information, but we may use it in association with Personal Information, and we may aggregate, analyze and evaluate such Log Data for the same purposes as stated above regarding other Non-Identifying Information.
Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to Analyst Market. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your account ID, login password, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication. For more information about phishing, visit the Federal Trade Commission’s website.
Professional Profiles. If you submit our Professional Registration form, your application is approved and you choose to use the Service as a Professional, your Professional profile will be created. This profile will not be publicly viewable via the Service. Such profile may include information including, but not limited to, name, location, skills, desired hourly pay rates, educational information, work experience, certifications/licenses and feedback/rating information. You may edit your Professional profile via the Edit Profile link when logged in and viewing your profile. Your Professional Profile will not be shared with any Analyst Market User (other than employees of Analyst Market) unless you apply for a project. If you apply for a project, the Organization whose project you applied for will have access to your your full profile. No other Professionals or Organizations will be able to view your profile or know that your profile exists.
Organization Profiles. If you submit our Organization Registration form, your application is approved and you choose to use the Service as an Organization, your Organization profile will be created. This profile will not be publicly viewable via the Service. Such profile may include information including, but not limited to name, location, organization name or job title. You may edit your Organization Profile via the Edit Profile link when logged in and viewing your profile. Your Organization Profile will not be shared with any Analyst Market User (other than employees of Analyst Market) unless you post a project. When you post a project, you will have the option of doing so anonymously, in which case your organization’s name will not appear in the project listing (“Project Listing”). If you do not choose to post your project anonymously, all registered Analyst Market Users will be able to view your organization’s name and description, since your organization’s name and description will appear in the Project Listing. Analyst Market Users who are not registered (for example those just simply browsing the site without logging in) will not be able to view your Organization Profile.
If you choose to post a project via the Service as an Organization, the contents of such Project Listing will be viewable via the Service, but only to registered Professionals and Organizations of the Site. Project Listings may include information such as budget, location, a description of the project, a brief description of the Organization, Organization feedback rating and timing of project performance.
We collect feedback from users about their experience with other users of the Service. Please note that any feedback that you provide via the Service will be viewable via the Service according to the following structure:
If and when an Organization selects a Professional for a particular project, the project will be launched and a Project Tracker will be generated. This Project Tracker will contain information from the profiles of both the Professional and the Organization who are engaged for the project, including but not limited to, contact information and details about the project. The Project Tracker will also contain an hour log that will enable the Professional to record hours spent on the project. This hour log will only be viewable by the Organization who has posted the project and to Analyst Market administrators. Project Trackers will not be made available to anyone other than the Organization who has posted a particular project and the Professional who is completing that project.
We may share aggregated information that does not include Personal Information and we may otherwise disclose Non-Identifying Information and Log Data with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other purposes. Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain your Personal Information.
We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf, to improve our Service and to perform Site-related services (e.g., without limitation, maintenance services, database management, web analytics, payment processing, fraud detection and improvement of the Site’s features) or to assist us in analyzing how our Site and Service are used. These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
Analyst Market cooperates with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of Analyst Market or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.
Analyst Market may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets, including your Personal Information, in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets or in the event of bankruptcy.
All registered Analyst Market Users may review, update, correct or delete the information in their registration profile by contacting us or by making edits while viewing their profiles. If you completely delete all such information or if you delete crucial information such as your education, then your account may become deactivated. If you would like us to delete your account in our system, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to honor your request; however, your Personal Information may remain in our archives. We may retain an archived copy of your records as required by law or for legitimate business purposes. Please bear in mind that neither you nor Analyst Market can delete all copies of information that has been previously shared with others on the Site or through the Service.
Analyst Market is very concerned with safeguarding your information. The security of your personal information is important to us. But remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number or social security number) on our registration or payment screens, that information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL). In some cases, we also encrypt sensitive information where it is stored on our systems. We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored “personal data” (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting on this Site in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, insofar as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
Our Site may contain links to other websites. If you choose to click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s website. The fact that we link to a website is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other sites follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.
This Site is not directed to persons under 18. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with Personal Information without their consent, he or she should contact us at email@example.com. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete such information from our files.
