Effective date: Sep 5, 2017.
We protect your personal information and will only provide it to third parties: (1) with your consent; (2) where it is necessary to carry out your instructions; (3) as reasonably necessary in order to provide our features and functionality to you; (4) when we reasonably believe it is required by law, subpoena or other legal process; or (5) as necessary to enforce our User Agreement or protect the rights, property, or safety of NEWTON , its Members and Visitors, and the public.
We have implemented appropriate security safeguards designed to protect your information in accordance with industry standards.
1. DATA CONTROL
1.2. Profile Information: After you create an account, you may choose to provide additional information on your NEWTON profile, such as professional experience, and educational background and others related to your area of expertise. You can list honors, awards, professional affiliations, companies or individuals that you follow, and other information including content. Providing additional information enables you to derive more benefit from NEWTON by helping you express your professional identity; find other professionals, opportunities, and information; and help recruiters and business opportunities find you.
1.4. Using The NEWTON Sites And Applications: We collect information when you use (whether as a User or a Visitor) the NEWTON websites. If you are logged in on nerwton.ai or another Service or a NEWTON cookie on your device identifies you, your usage information, such as your IP address, will be associated with your account. Even if you’re not logged into a Service, we log information about devices used to access our Services, including IP address.
1.6. Log Files, IP Addresses, And Information About Your Computer And Mobile Device: When you visit or leave NEWTON site (whether as a Member or Visitor) by clicking a hyperlink or when you view a plugin on a third-party site, we automatically receive the URL of the site from which you came or the one to which you are directed. We also receive the internet protocol (“IP”) address of your computer or the proxy server that you use to access the web, your computer operating system details, your type of web browser, your mobile device (including your mobile device identifier provided by your mobile device operating system), and your mobile operating system (if you are accessing NEWTON using a mobile device).
2. HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Content distributed through NEWTON sharing features and third-party integrations may result in displaying some of your personal information outside of NEWTON. For example, when you post content that is open for public discussion, your content, including your name as the contributor, will be displayed in the feed and in the search engine results. Also, if you have bound your NEWTON account to your Facebook, Google + and LinkedIn account, you can easily share content from NEWTON to Facebook, Google + and LinkedIn, in accordance with your applicable account settings (which you may change at any time) and respective Facebook, Google + and LinkedIn policies. Further, NEWTON allows third parties to look-up profile information (subject to your privacy settings) using your email address or first and last name information through its profile API.
2.3. Search: You can search for other User’s, information about companies and employment opportunities. For example, you can find User’s with particular expertise or experience, or other Users that you may know from your industry or profession. You can also find employment opportunities and information about companies. We use personal information from NEWTON, including User´s profiles, User´s content, and Company Pages, to inform and refine our search service.
2.4. Recruiting Solutions: We offer tailored people-search functionality tools as part of our recruiting solution. These services allow subscribers – generally, enterprises and professional organizations - to export limited information from Members’ public profiles, such as name, headline, current company, current title, and location, in order to effectively manage candidate sourcing. You may limit or prevent such subscribers from exporting your profile information by configuring your public profile visibility settings to restrict access to these fields. We do not provide email or other contact information to these subscribers. However, if you post that information as part of your profile it will be available to them and others. A recruiter or other such subscriber may also manage and store information it has independently obtained about you outside of our Services, such as a resume, in connection with NEWTON platform. Any personal information obtained independently of NEWTON services will not be added by NEWTON to your profile and is not under NEWTON´S control but is subject to the policies of the NEWTON recruiting subscriber. We store such information on behalf of such subscriber who can remove it at any time. We do not further process such information.
2.5. Compliance with Legal Process and Other Disclosures: It is possible that we may need to disclose personal information, profile information, or information about your activities as a Member or Visitor when required by law, subpoena, or other legal process, or if NEWTON has a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (1) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies; (2) enforce the User Agreement, investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, or protect the security or integrity of our Service; or (3) exercise or protect the rights, property, or safety of NEWTON, our User´s, personnel, or others. We attempt to notify User´s about legal demands for their data when appropriate in our judgment, unless prohibited by law or court order or when the request is an emergency. In light of our principles, we may dispute such demands when we believe, in our discretion, that the requests are overbroad, vague or lack proper authority, but do not commit to challenge every demand.
3. RIGHTS AND DATA RETENTION
3.1. Rights to Access, Correct, or Delete Your Information, and Closing Your Account: You have a right to (1) access, modify, correct, or delete your personal information controlled by NEWTON regarding your profile, (2) remove your content, and (3) close your account. You can also contact us for any account information which is not on your profile or readily accessible to you. If you close your account(s), your information will generally be removed from the Service within 24 hours. We generally delete closed account information and will de-personalize any logs or other backup information within 30 days of account closure, except as noted below.
