Privacy Policy

CDL Marketing Group, LLC (d/b/a Career Now Brands) (“Career Now”, “us”, or “we”) operates several websites (“Our Sites”). By using Our Sites, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy. It is our policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating Our Sites. The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to make you aware of how we collect, use, and disclose the information we gather from our users on Our Sites. This Privacy Policy applies only to information collected through Our Sites and not to information we collect offline. By using this website, you signify your assent to our Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with any term in this Privacy Policy, please do not use this site or submit any personally identifiable information.

Personal Information. Certain users will choose to interact with Our Sites in ways that require us to gather certain Personal Information (as defined below), such as your name, date of birth, physical address, and email address, among other things. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction and is always at the discretion of the user. Career Now only collects information we deem necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the user’s interaction with Our Sites. Career Now does not disclose Personal Information other than as described below. Keep in mind that each user may refuse to supply Personal Information, with the caveat that it may prevent us from providing the service requested by the user. For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” means information that can be linked to a specific individual, such as name, postal address, mobile and wired telephone numbers, and email address. Personal information also includes demographic information, location information, and other information about a specific individual, once it is associated with Personal Information. However, Personal Information does NOT include information that we collect but do not associate with you.

Automatic Gathering of Information by Third Parties. When you visit any of Our Sites, third parties can and may collect personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across different websites pertaining to your visit to, or use of, our and others’ websites.

Do-Not-Track Requests. Do-not-track requests are typically made through web browser settings that control signals or other mechanisms that provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. We do not respond to do-not-track signals if enabled by the user.

How Your Personal Information is Used. We use your Personal Information to connect you with third parties who will provide you with the services that you have requested and perform functions as described to you at the time of collection. Therefore, when you submit your Personal Information to us, we use that information to contact you and/or allow a third party or third-party affiliate to contact you, including by use of an automatic telephone dialing system, via email, telephone, postal mail, and mobile device even if the telephone number you submitted appears on any state and/or federal Do Not Call Registry, because your inquiry creates an exception to state and/or federal Do Not Call laws. We also use your Personal Information to respond to your inquiries and/or requests and to send you important information regarding Our Sites. Additionally, your Personal Information can be used to manage your customer relationship and provide you with customer support.

Occasionally, we may send you surveys and marketing communications that we believe may be of interest to you. We use your Personal Information to personalize your experience on Our Sites by presenting advertising/display content and services tailored to you. From time to time, we will also present you with advertisements tailored to you on certain third-party websites.

The use of Personal Information may also allow you to participate in sweepstakes, contests, and similar promotions and to administer these activities. Please note that some of these activities may have additional rules, which could contain additional information about how we use and disclose your Personal Information, so we suggest that you read any such rules carefully.

Finally, we use your Personal Information for certain business purposes, such as data analysis, audits, developing new products, enhancing Our Sites, improving our services, identifying usage trends, and determining and improving the effectiveness of our promotional and advertising campaigns.

How Personal Information is Disclosed. Your Personal Information may be disclosed to third parties for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. If you request information from third parties so that they can provide you with information about their services or needs, we will provide your contact information to them. In addition, we disclose Personal Information to those who provide services such as contact information verification, customer service, data analysis, IT services, marketing and promotional services, email delivery services, and other similar services in order to enable them to provide those services. We are not responsible or liable for third parties’ use of your Personal Information. Other times, we may provide that information to third-party sponsors of sweepstakes, contests, and similar promotions.

If you are seeking educational opportunities through any of Our Sites, by submitting your information, including your Personal Information, to us, you expressly consent to be contacted by us and schools or partners in the Career Now network, or their respective representatives, with materials and information for educational services via email, telephone, or text message, and understand and agree that the calls and messages may be transmitted using an automatic telephone dialing system and/or an artificial or prerecorded voice. If you are seeking employment opportunities through any of Our Sites, by submitting your information, including your Personal Information, to us, you grant us consent to use such information for the purpose of providing it to potential employers and other industry-related organizations, and you are further consenting to the receipt of emails, text messages, and phone calls which may be transmitted using an automatic telephone dialing system and/or an artificial or prerecorded voice from such entities and us and/or their or our respective representatives. Finally, we may also disclose your Personal Information as we believe to be necessary or appropriate: (a) Under applicable law, including laws outside your country of residence; (b) To comply with legal process; (c) To respond to requests from public and government authorities, including public and government authorities outside your country of residence; (d) To enforce our terms and conditions; (e) To protect our operations or those of any of our affiliates; (f) To protect our rights, privacy, safety, or property, and/or that of our affiliates, you or others; and (g) To allow us to pursue available remedies or limit any damages that we may sustain.

How We Collect, Use, and Disclose Non-Personal Information. Non-Personal Information is any information that does not reveal your specific identity, like which browser you use, your language preference, and which operating system you use. We also collect demographic data, like your location and the highest level of education you have completed. Additionally, we collect Non-Personal Information through the use of cookies, pixel tags, web beacons, and other similar technologies. Our purpose in collecting this type of information is to better understand how our users use Our Sites.

IP Addresses. Career Now collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for users of Our Sites. Career Now only uses and discloses user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses Personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy.

Your IP address is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever a user visits Our Sites, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) that were visited. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice on the Internet and is done automatically by many websites. We use IP addresses for purposes such as calculating usage levels of Our Sites, helping diagnose server problems, geographic mapping, and administering Our Sites.

Cookies. A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a user’s computer, and that the user’s browser provides to the website each time the user returns. We use cookies to collect information about your usage of Our Sites. If you do not wish to have cookies placed on your computer, you should set your browser to refuse cookies. However, please note that doing so may make it more difficult to use certain features of Our Sites which may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Third Parties. This Privacy Policy does not cover, and we are not responsible for, the privacy policies of, or the use of your information by, any third parties, including those with links on Our Sites. The inclusion of a link on any of Our Sites does not imply endorsement of the linked site by us or Our Sites.

Ads appearing on any of Our Sites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you.

Our Sites may include social media features from third-party social media websites. These features may collect your IP address, which page(s) you are visiting on our site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. These features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on Our Sites. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing such features.

Security. We use reasonable measures to protect any information we gather from our users. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or data storage system can be guaranteed to be secure. If you have reason to believe that your information has been compromised, please notify us of the problem immediately by contacting us at privacy@careernowbrands.com.

We will only implement such requests with respect to the information associated with the particular email address that you use to send us your request (or that you include in your mailed request), and we may need to verify your identity before implementing your request.

In your request, please state your email address, what information you would like to have changed, and/or whether you would like to have your Personal Information removed from our records. We will comply with your request as soon as reasonably possible.

Use by Minors. Our Sites are not directed to individuals under the age of thirteen (13), and we request that such individuals do not provide Personal Information through Our Sites.Business Transfers. If Career Now, or substantially all of its assets, were to be a part of any reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer, or any other disposition of property, or in the unlikely event that Career Now goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is passed to a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Career Now may continue to use your Personal Information and Non-Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.
