Last revised and effective as of: January 1, 2016

This Privacy Policy relates to information about you that you submit to or is collected by Zwicker & Associates, P.C. (“Zwicker” or "we" or “us” or “our”) via email or otherwise (with respect to information contained on any employment application submitted to Zwicker).

You should carefully read this Privacy Policy. By submitting information to us or using our website, you are signifying your acceptance of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy, please do not submit information to us or use our website.

WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED AND HOW IT IS USED

If you submit an employment application to us via email or otherwise communicate with us via email or by any other means, we collect whatever information you include in such application or other communications, including the personal information contained in the employment application and your email address. We may use this information to evaluate your credentials for employment and to contact you. In addition, like many websites, we may gather certain information about our site traffic for administrative and analytical purposes. This information may include visitors' Internet protocol addresses, browser types, referring and exit pages, operating systems or dates/times of page views. We may use this information to administer and guide changes to our website, and to gather aggregated demographic information about our website’s user base.

Our website is not designed for or directed to children under the age of 13. We do not collect personally identifiable information from any person whom we know is under the age of 13.

DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES

Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy or our Terms of Use or as specifically authorized by you, we will not disclose any information we gather from you.

Laws and Legal Rights.

We may disclose your information (including personally identifiable information) if we believe in good faith that we are required to do so in order to comply with an applicable statute, regulation, rule or law, a subpoena, a search warrant, a court or regulatory order, or other valid legal process. We may disclose personally identifiable information in special circumstances when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our website terms of use, to detect fraud, for assistance with a delinquent account, or to protect the safety and/or security of others.

Outside Contractors.

We may employ independent contractors, vendors and suppliers (collectively, "Outside Contractors") to provide specific services, such as performing background checks on applicants and hosting and maintaining our website and servers. In the course of providing services to us, these Outside Contractors may have access to collected information, including your personally identifiable information. We require that these contractors agree to (1) protect the privacy of your personally identifiable information consistent with this Privacy Policy, and (2) not use or disclose your personally identifiable information for any purpose other than providing us with the services for which we contracted or as required by law.

Sale of Business.

We reserve the right to transfer information to a third party in the event of a sale, merger or other transfer of some or all of the assets or business of Zwicker or any of its Corporate Affiliates (as defined below), or in the event that we discontinue our business or file a petition or have filed against us a petition in bankruptcy, reorganization or similar proceeding, provided that the third party agrees to adhere to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Affiliates.

We may disclose information (including personally identifiable information) about you to our Corporate Affiliates. For purposes of this Privacy Policy, "Corporate Affiliate" means any person or entity which directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by or is under common control with Zwicker, whether by ownership or otherwise. Any information relating to you that we provide to our Corporate Affiliates will be treated by those Corporate Affiliates in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

SECURITY OF INFORMATION

We want your information (including personally identifiable information) to remain secure. We strive to provide transmission of your information from your email accounts to ours through techniques that are consistent with industry standards and to employ administrative, physical, and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access.

However, you should be aware that there is always some risk involved in transmitting information over the Internet. There is also some risk that others could find a way to thwart our security systems. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security or privacy of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

CHOICES REGARDING THE COLLECTION, DISCLOSURE AND DISTRIBUTION OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION

Except as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy, we will only use personally identifiable information for the purposes described above or as otherwise disclosed at the time we request such information from you. You must "opt in" and give us permission to use your personally identifiable information for any other purpose. You may also change your preference and "opt out" of receiving certain communications from us by contacting privacy@zwickerpc.com.

The term “Do Not Track” refers to a HTTP header offered by certain web browsers to request that websites refrain from tracking the user. We take no action in response to Do Not Track requests.

UPDATING OR CORRECTING PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION

You have the right to request the restriction of certain uses and disclosures of personally identifiable information that you submit to us for the purpose of our evaluation of your employment application, as follows. You can contact us in order to (1) update or correct your personally identifiable information, (2) change your preferences with respect to communications and other information you receive from us, or (3) delete the personally identifiable information maintained about you on our systems (subject to the following paragraph), by contacting privacy@zwickerpc.com. Such updates, corrections, changes and deletions will have no effect on other information that we maintain, or information that we have provided to third parties in accordance with this Privacy Policy prior to such update, correction, change or deletion

You should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to us from our system. The need to back up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of your personally identifiable information may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate. We promise that promptly after receiving your request, all personally identifiable information stored in databases we actively use and other readily searchable media will be updated, corrected, changed or deleted, as appropriate, as soon as and to the extent reasonably practicable.

CHANGES TO OUR PRIVACY POLICY

We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time.  We will not make changes that result in significant additional uses or disclosures of your personally identifiable information without allowing you to “opt in” to such changes. We may also make non-significant changes to this Privacy Policy that generally will not significantly affect our use of your personally identifiable information, for which your opt-in is not required. We encourage you to check this page periodically for any changes. If any non-significant changes to this Privacy Policy are unacceptable to you, you must immediately contact us and, until the issue is resolved, and not send us any additional information or use our website. Your continued submission or information or use of our website following the posting of non-significant changes to this Privacy Policy constitutes your acceptance of those changes.
