This Privacy Policy is subject to Exiger’s Website Terms of Use (“TOU”) located at www.ddiq.com/terms-and-conditions.

 

Purpose of Collection of Personal Information

On certain areas of its websites, Exiger allows you to provide personal information so that we may fulfill your requests for information or otherwise allow you to interact with us. For instance, personal information may be used to fulfill your requests for Exiger publications, to allow you to publish comments on our website content, or to facilitate our receipt and processing of your career-related inquiries.

 

What types of personal information is collected?

The personally identifiable information or “PII” that may be collected might include your name, address, e-mail address, and telephone number. Additional background information might be collected in connection with career-related inquiries.

 

In addition, Exiger may collect certain types of information that you do not visibly enter, such as your IP address, browsing patterns on our websites, click stream data, and HTP protocol elements. This tracking information is stored in anonymous, aggregated and non-personal format, and is used to understand and analyze trends, to administer the websites, and to learn about user behavior on the websites. However, Exiger may use IP addresses to help identify you when Exiger feels, in its sole discretion, that it is necessary to enforce compliance with this Privacy Policy, to protect its services, websites, systems, information, employees, business partners, subsidiaries, affiliates, users, customers or others, or when required by law or for law enforcement purposes.

 

Information Collected from Cookies and Other Technologies

Exiger’s website, online services, applications, email messages, and advertisements, if any, may use “cookies” and other technologies such as pixel tags and web beacons to collect information about you (pixel tags and web beacons are also known as clear GIFs, action tags or web tags). Please see our Cookie Policy for further information.

 

Disclosure of Personal Information to Third Parties

Exiger will not share personal information collected from you with third parties for purposes other than those in support of Exiger’s operations and as necessary to facilitate the purpose for which you provided it. In some cases Exiger may share the information with its affiliated companies or with third party service providers retained by Exiger to provide services on its behalf. These affiliated companies or third party service providers will use your information only to accomplish the purposes for which the information was collected.

 

Your Personal Information may also be shared under the following circumstances: (i) if Exiger is required to do so by law enforcement authorities or government agencies; and (ii) in connection with investigations or other efforts to prevent illegal activities or pertaining to public safety.

 

Exiger may disclose and transfer your personal information during a merger or during the divestiture of company assets. However, we will require the acquiring organization to agree to protect the privacy of your personal information consistent with this Privacy Notice.

 

Information Security

While Exiger endeavors to protect your personal information, we cannot warrant the security of any personal information, and ultimately you provide your personal information to us at your own risk. Exiger uses industry standard efforts and security practices to safeguard your personal information, and uses commercially reasonable efforts to employ security measures designed to protect your personal information from access by unauthorized persons. Exiger retains your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected, as outlined previously in this Privacy Notice, unless a longer retention period is mandated or permitted by law.

In the event you decide that you want to opt out from Exiger’s use of your personal information that you previously provided to Exiger, you may opt out of our use of your personal information by notifying Exiger by email at: privacy@exiger.com.

 

If you have submitted personal information to Exiger, under most circumstances you have the right to reasonable access to that data to correct any inaccuracies. You can also make a request to update or remove information about you by contacting privacy@exiger.comand we will make all reasonable and practical efforts to comply with your request, so long as it is consistent with applicable law and professional standards.
