SUZANNE SKEES and MyJobStories.com’s
Effective Date: 29OCT2014
Like most website operators, SUZANNE SKEES collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. SUZANNE SKEES’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how SUZANNE SKEES’ visitors use its website. From time to time, SUZANNE SKEES may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
SUZANNE SKEES also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. SUZANNE SKEES does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to SUZANNE SKEES’ websites choose to interact with SUZANNE SKEES in ways that require SUZANNE SKEES to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that SUZANNE SKEES gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our forums to provide a username and email address. In each case, SUZANNE SKEES collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with SUZANNE SKEES. SUZANNE SKEES does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, SUZANNE SKEES discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when SUZANNE SKEES believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SUZANNE SKEES, third parties, or the public at large.
