Technologies such as: cookies or similar technologies are used by Bond and our marketing partners, affiliates, analytics or web and customer service providers. These technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual as well as aggregated basis.
As is true of most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve services we offer you, to improve marketing, analytics, or site functionality.
We partner with a third party to either display advertising on our Web site or to manage our advertising on other sites.

Section II: Personal Information collected via our Hosted platform:
We only collect the Customer Information that you (Clients) provide to us or direct us to collect. Customer Information is information that we receive from you, or from a third party at your direction, about your data subjects. In general, Bond International Software may collect personal information about several different types of individuals, including: candidates, employees, business clients, suppliers, and other business partners. Such data may include basic contact information such as name, postal address, e-mail address, and phone number, as well as sensitive personal information such as demographic and employee information.

Notice, Access and Choice:
The EU-US Privacy Shield requires that data subjects must have access to personal information about them that an organization holds, and that they be able to correct, amend, or delete that information where it is inaccurate. We operate under the assumption that (if applicable), it is the data controller’s obligation as data controller to provide your data subjects a means of accessing their data. An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data should direct his query to Bond’s Client (the data controller). If you receive a data-access request from a data subject about whom we host data and you would like our assistance in responding to that request, please contact us as described below. We will respond to requests within 30 days of receipt. Bond collects information under the direction of its Clients, and has no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal data it processes. If you are a customer of one of our Clients and would no longer like to be contacted by one of our Clients that use our service, please contact the Client that you interact with directly. Bond will retain personal data we process on behalf of our Clients for as long as needed to provide services to our Clients. Bond will retain this personal data as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
The EU-US Privacy Shield requires that members offer end users a choice to opt out of uses and disclosures of their data that are incompatible with the purposes for which that data was originally collected or subsequently authorized. We operate under the assumption that (if applicable), it is the data controller’s obligation as data controller to obtain from your data subjects the appropriate consent to transfer their data to us and to process their data using our products for defined purposes. We may transfer personal information to companies that help us provide our service. Transfers to subsequent third parties are covered by the service agreements with our Clients. As your data processor, we will not share, sell, rent, or trade with third parties for their marketing purposes any Customer Information collected by us, unless you direct us to do so and have the appropriate authorization to do so.
Section III: The following section applies to our Hosted platform and our corporate websites:
Confidentiality and Legal Privilege
We may also disclose your personal information:
Bond may disclose Personal Information to business partners and subcontractors as necessary in connection with the performance of requested services or solutions, or as otherwise appropriate in connection with a legitimate business need. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us.
We respect your privacy and will not sell or make available in any way your personal and/or sensitive information except where you have specifically asked us to do so.
Security of your Personal Information
We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. We will safeguard the security of your personal and sensitive data and will comply with the restrictions you specify on its use. We will carefully protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration or destruction. Your data will be stored in a password-controlled database on servers with limited access and will not be shared outside our firm without your permission, except under the conditions explained above. However, electronic transmission and processing of data is inherently insecure, and we cannot absolutely guarantee the security of any data that you disclose on-line. The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number or Social Security Number) on our website or your login credentials on our hosted platform, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
