C1W - Privacy Policy


We at Clover Global Solutions, LP ("we" or "Clover") have created this privacy policy to demonstrate our firm commitment to protecting your personal information and informing you about how we handle it. This privacy policy only applies to transactions and activities in which you engage, and data gathered, on any of Clover’s websites (collectively, the "Website") but does not apply to any other site or offline point of contact between Clover, or any other website, and consumers. Please review this privacy policy periodically as we may modify it from time to time. This privacy policy was last revised on March 20, 2009. Each time you visit the Website or provide us with information, by doing so you are accepting the practices described in this privacy policy at that time.


Information Collected by Us


In order to operate the Website and to provide you with information about products or services that may be of interest to you, we may collect "personal information" (i.e. information that could be used to contact you directly (without using the Website) such as full name, postal address, resumes, phone number or email address), "financial information" (i.e. credit card numbers or passwords) or "demographic information" (i.e. information that you submit, or that we collect, that is neither personal information nor financial information; this may include, but is not limited to, zip code, postal code, hometown, gender, username, age/birth date, purchase history information, browsing history information, searching history information, registration history information, and the content of communications between you and other Users over the Website), subject to the rest of this paragraph. Demographic information is divided into two categories: 1) "non-public information", which consists of purchase history information and one-on-one communications between you and other users of the Website; and 2) "public information", which consists of all other demographic information. We ask that you do not enter personal information or financial information into your profile (for example, do not use your address or password as your username, or include your name or address in your written responses), because if you do then it may be posted publicly on the Website, and the information will then be treated as "demographic information" that is "public information." We may use your registration information (e.g. skills, experience, roles, etc.) to enable you and other users to better filter through search results in an effort to help determine whether project requirements and user profiles found are a match for you and other users. Clover does not share your registration information (e.g. skills, experience, roles, etc.) with other users, but we reserve the right to do so at our sole discretion with or without prior notice to you.


Information Collected by Others


On the Website, we place links to other websites operated by other parties. Some of these other websites contain our brand names and trademarks and other intellectual property that we own; others do not. When you click on these links and visit these other websites, regardless of whether or not they contain our brand names, trademarks and other intellectual property, you need to be aware that we do not control these other websites or the business practices of these other websites, and that this privacy policy does not apply to these other websites. Consequently, the operators of these other websites may collect different kinds of information about you, and may use and disclose that information in different ways than we would if it were collected on the Website. We encourage you to review their privacy policies and remind you that we will not be responsible for their actions.


IP Address


An IP address of a user is used by most e-commerce websites to collect demographic data and improve service. We use your IP address, as well as the website you visited prior to our website for much the same purpose. We automatically gather this information after each visit and translate this information into a resource that we can use to identify and correct problems with our website and better understand our users, as well as continually update and expand our offerings.


Cookies & Web Beacons


We may also use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests, to save your password, and if you choose, to save other personal and financial information so you do not have to reenter it each time you visit the Website. Third party advertisers on the Website may also place or read cookies on your browser. If you wish to disable these cookies, the "help" portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how. However, if you set your browser to disable cookies, you may not be able to access certain areas on the Website.

"Web beacons" or clear .gifs are small pieces of code placed on a web page to monitor the behavior and collect data about the visitors viewing a web page. For example, web beacons can be used to count the users who visit a web page or to deliver a cookie to the browser of a visitor viewing that page. We may use web beacons on this site from time to time for this and other purposes.


Use of Personal Information


We use your email address and your other personal information to help us efficiently operate the Website, to contact you in connection with your transactions and other activities on the Website (including, but not limited to, confirmation emails or important news that could affect your relationship with Clover), and to forward messages to you from other Website users. These types of communications are known as "Operational Communications." In some cases, Operational Communications may also contain commercial messages, such as banner ads and special offers.


We also use personal information to send you newsletters, information, offers and other promotional materials for Clover and/or third party goods or services. We attempt to send you offers that are of value to you, such as discounts, exclusive offers or special event information. By registering an account on the Website, you are opting in to receive occasional promotional emails from Clover. To stop receiving occasional promotional email from Clover, please cancel your account.


To operate the Website, including processing your transactions and supporting your activities on the Website, we may share your personal information with our agents, representatives, contractors and service providers so they can provide us with support services such as authorization of credit card transactions, email origination, receipt or support services, customer relationship management services, and order fulfillment. We require these entities not to use your information for any other purpose.


Please read the information below under the heading "Sharing Personal & Financial Information" to learn more ways in which we may share your personal information.


Use of Financial Information


We use your financial information to check your qualifications, to bill you for products and services and to enable you to participate in discount, rebate and similar programs in which you may elect to participate. By making a purchase, or engaging in any other kind of activity or transaction that uses financial information, on the Website, you consent to our providing your financial information to our service providers and to such third parties as we determine are necessary to support and process your activities and transactions, as well as to your credit card issuer for their purposes. These third parties may include the credit card companies and banking institutions used to process and support the transaction or activity. Additionally, you agree that we may use and disclose all such information submitted to such third parties in the same manner in which we are entitled to use and disclose any other information that you submit to us. Please read the information below under the heading "Sharing Personal & Financial Information" to learn more ways in which we may share your financial information.


Sharing Personal & Financial Information


Your personal information or financial information may be passed on to a third party in the event of a transfer of ownership or assets, or a bankruptcy. We may also disclose personal information or financial information when we determine that such disclosure is necessary to comply with applicable law, to cooperate with law enforcement or to protect the interests or safety of Clover or other users to the Website. We also may disclose your personal information or financial information to our subsidiary and parent companies and businesses, and other affiliated legal entities and businesses with whom we are under common corporate control. Whenever personal information or financial information is disclosed under this paragraph, we may also disclose your demographic information along with it, on a non-anonymous basis. All of our parent, subsidiary and affiliated legal entities and businesses that receive your personal information, financial information, or non-anonymous demographic information from us will comply with the terms of this privacy policy with respect to their use and disclosure of such information.


Use of Public & Demographic Information


We may review all demographic information. We may use public information to enable other users to find your profile, to determine whether they are a match for you and to communicate with you. We may use demographic information to tailor the Website and communications to your interests. We may also share demographic information with advertisers on an anonymous and aggregated basis (i.e., without telling the advertisers your identity). One of the reasons we may do this is to increase the likelihood that our advertiser goods and services will appeal to Website users, and so that we may target specific ads at specific demographic groups. Our sharing of demographic information with advertisers is anonymous (i.e., we do not tell advertisers which particular Website users are users of which demographic groups), subject to the rest of this privacy policy. When you respond to an advertisement, however, we ask you to remember that if that ad that is targeted to a demographic group and you decide to give the advertiser your personal information, then the advertiser may be able to identify you as being a user of that demographic group. Please also be aware that we may disclose your demographic information on a non-anonymous basis as described above in the paragraph titled "Sharing Personal & Financial Information." Also, to read further details about how we may use your public information, see our Terms of Use.


Our Security Precautions


The Website has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Our secure server software (SSL) is the industry standard and among the best software available today for secure commerce transactions. We encrypt all of your financial information as it travels over the Internet and we store your financial information on our servers in encrypted form. Your information may be transferred to and maintained on computer networks which may be located outside of the state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction in which you reside, and the country or jurisdiction in which these computer networks are located may not have privacy laws as protective as the laws in your country or jurisdiction.


Updates to Privacy Policy


If at any point we decide to use particular personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email or by providing 30 days notice on the Website. Please note that we will continue to have the right to change our privacy policy and practices, and how we use your personally identifiable information, without notice, as described in the first paragraph of this Privacy Policy, provided that such changes shall only apply to information gathered on or after the date of the change.


Access and Update Personal & Public Information


We give you the opportunity to modify personal information or demographic information you have provided to us, and to hide demographic information from, or make demographic information visible to, the public users of the Website, at anytime by going to the appropriate section of the Website. Please be aware that it may take several hours for the changes you make to take effect on the Website. We thank you for your patience. Please note that changing or deleting your information through the appropriate section of the Website, will only change or delete the data in our database for purposes of future activities on the Website and for managing future communications from Clover. These changes and deletions will not change or delete emails or information that we may have already forwarded to other users or credit card companies or any other third parties, all as provided above in this privacy policy.
