- When you submit your Personal Data to us for any other reasons.
HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT |
We use the information we collect in support of any products or services offered by us. The following paragraphs describe some of the ways in which we may use your Personal Data:
Fulfilling your requests | We may use your Personal Data to respond to your inquiries and fulfil your requests. If you contact us, we may keep a record of your contact information and correspondence, and we may use any information you provide in your message to respond to your inquiry.
Business purpose | We may use your Personal Data for our business purposes, such as audits, internal communication regarding candidates and clients, determining the effectiveness of our promotional activities, administering our products and services, maintaining and securing our infrastructure, and for procurement and financial transactions.
Informational communications | RIVIONT may from time to time send informational e-mails, articles, white papers, proposals, engagement letters, and other information regarding our products and/or services. Occasionally, and with your consent, we may use your Personal Data in press releases and direct marketing materials. We also may use your Personal Data such as e-mail or postal addresses to conduct surveys.
Administrative information | We may from time to time use your Personal Data to send you important information regarding our products and/or services, changes to our terms, conditions, and policies and/or other administrative information. We may also contact you from time to time to verify that your Personal Data that we have collected is accurate and current.
Other activities | In addition, we may use and disclose your Personal Data to enhance the provision of our products and/or services including but not limited to the following:
- Additional activities. In the course of providing our products and/or services, we use personal information that we have collected concerning candidates to identify professional opportunities that we think may be of interest. We may contact potential candidates from time to time regarding such opportunities. We also may contact individuals from time to time to solicit names of, or other personal information regarding, potential candidates in connection with a search that we are conducting and for purposes of market intelligence.
We also use personal information to confirm references and conduct education and background checks, as appropriate. We may further use personal information that we collect for purposes of aggregating and disclosing diversity statistics and other statistical information regarding our candidates and placement activities.

Analytics | We may retain and use information about you, which may include, for example, your personal information, for research, publication, development, benchmarking and norms, validation, longitudinal studies, trend analysis and to improve and enhance our products and/or services or develop and market new products and/or services. Any published end product may or may not refer only to larger aggregations of individuals and will not identify you personally or include any results attributable to you.
Key-coded data | We may key-code your personal information, meaning that such information is stripped of all information that may identify you (direct identifiers) and replaced by a key-code to minimise unwanted or unintended identification. Such key-coded information can be de-coded by the use of the key so that it identifies you again. We may use such information for the purposes described in the paragraph above entitled “Analytics” and as permitted by applicable law.

OTHER INFORMATION WE COLLECT |
RIVIONT collects other information that does not reveal your specific identity (‘Other Information’), such as:
- Information collected through cookies, pixel tags and other technologies;
- App usage data;
- Demographic information and other information provided by you; and
- Aggregated information.
Since Other Information does not reveal your specific identity, we may use it for any purpose. If we combine any Other Information with your Personal Data (such as combining your name with your location), we will treat the combined information as your Personal Data.
We and our third-party service providers may collect Other Information in a variety of ways, including:
Using cookies | We use ‘cookies’ — that is, small text files placed on a visitor’s computer hard drive — and other technologies to help us determine information such as the type of content to which a visitor to our website links, and the length of time each visitor spends at any particular area of our website. RIVIONT cookies are only read by RIVIONT servers and are unable to execute any code or virus. We and our service providers use the information for security purposes, to facilitate navigation, display information more effectively, and to personalise your experience while using our website, products and/or services, as well as for tracking purposes. We also gather statistical information about the usage of our website, products and/or services, in order to continually improve the design and functionality, understand how our website, products and/or services are used and to assist us with resolving questions regarding our website, products and/or services.
You can configure your browser settings to automatically decline cookies, or be given the choice of declining or accepting the transfer to your computer of a particular cookie (or cookies) from a particular site. (Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.) You may also wish to refer to http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/index.html. However, if you do not accept these cookies, you may experience some inconvenience in your use of our website, products and/or services. For example, we may not be able to recognise your computer and you may need to log in every time you visit our website, products and/or services.

Using pixel tags, web beacons, clear GIFs or other similar technologies | These may be used in connection with some of our web pages and HTML-formatted email messages to, among other things, track the actions of the users of our website and email recipients, measure the success of our communications and compile statistics about usage of our website and response rates.
Using Adobe Flash technology (including Flash Local Shared Objects (‘Flash LSOs’)) and other similar technologies | We may use Flash LSOs and other technologies to, among other things, collect and store information about your use of our website, products and/or services. If you do not want Flash LSOs stored on your computer, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash LSO storage using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel. You can also control Flash LSOs by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions (which may include instructions that explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash LSOs, how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your being asked, and how to block Flash LSOs that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time). Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash LSOs may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with the Online Systems.
Tracking data | RIVIONT monitors visitor traffic patterns throughout our website by logging ‘Tracking Data’, which is collected automatically from each visitor to our website.

RIVIONT uses Tracking Data in aggregate form to perform statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behaviour of our visitors, and by measuring demographics and interests regarding specific areas of our website.

We may use your device’s physical location to provide you with location-based services and content.

If you would like to: (i) ask questions about how we handle personal information; (ii) review, correct or update your personal information; or (iii) request that your personal information be removed from RIVIONT’s database, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In that case, your request may need to be directed to your company’s management. We will, however, forward your request to the appropriate person at your company.
We also may need to retain certain information about you, such as your e-mail address, in order to honor opt-out or similar requests. Please keep in mind that this residual information will remain within RIVIONT’s databases, access logs and other records, which may or may not contain personal information about you.
