Principles of data protection:
1. The Information We Collect.
Information Submitted by You
Information about you. We collect information about you when you use the Services in a variety of ways:
When you create an account, you provide us with information such as your name and email address directly. You can provide additional information to enhance your profile such as your location, industry, bio, picture, and phone number. If you believe that someone has created an unauthorized account depicting you or your likeness, you can request its removal by contacting us.
As part of the review submission process, we will collect your name, company name, and email address for our records, but this information will not be made available to the public.
Information about others. You may provide information about others (e.g. clients). You should obtain the consent of other individuals prior to providing Techreviewer with their information. The information you provide about others is only used in the reference check and review process.
Automatically Collected Information
Cookies are files that websites and online services create and access on your computer or other Internet-connected devices to uniquely identify your browser or to store information or settings on your device to help us recognize you, improve your experience, increase security, and measure the use of our Services. Our Services may use HTTP cookies, HTML5 cookies, Flash cookies, and other types of local storage (such as browser-based or plugin-based local storage). Please note, however, that without cookies or local storage you may not be able to use all of the features of our Services.
We may also collect different types of information about your location, including general information (e.g., IP address, zip code) and more specific information (e.g., GPS-based functionality on mobile devices used to access the Services), and may use that information to customize the Services with location-based information, advertising, and features. For example, if you provide a zipcode that indicates that you live in Washington DC, the Services may be customized with Washington-specific information and advertisements. In order to do this, your location information may be passed along to our agents, vendors, or advertisers. If you access the Services through a mobile device and you do not want your device to provide us with GPS location-tracking information, you can disable the GPS or other location-tracking functions on your device, provided your device allows you to do this. See your device manufacturer’s instructions for further details.
