The information we collect and how we use such information depends on what you do when you visit the Website.
For all visitors, including those who visit the homepage www.gospicefire.com, we may collect and store non-personally identifiable information, including the name of the domain from which you access the internet, your internet protocol (IP) address, the date and time which you accessed the Website and the internet address (URL) of the website from which you linked directly to the Website. We use the information collected to measure the number of visitors to different sections of the Website, to help make the Website more useful to visitors, to help diagnose problems, to customize the content or layout of the Website for each individual visitor, and to administer the Website. At times, we may share this information with our partners, contractors and affiliates so that they too may understand how the Website users, collectively, use areas of the Website. Spicefire may also use such information to contact you about new Website announcements, enhancements, and general updates.
For job applicants who file a job application using the Careers link on the Website or via email, we may gather specific information about you, including personally identifiable information such as your name, email address, address, phone numbers, profile information, your cover letter, your resume, your portfolios, and any other information that you submit. Additionally, we may collect optional information about you as part of the Voluntary Equal Employment Opportunity Survey, such as your gender, your race, your military service, and your disability, if any. Once submitted, the information will be retained or destroyed in accordance with Spicefire’s record and document retention policies. We may share the information you submit to our partners, affiliates, sister companies, and subsidiaries who may be interested in considering you for positions similar to the ones for which you filed the job application. Except as otherwise provided in this Policy, the information you submit shall not be made available to outside third parties.
We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf, including, but not limited to, hosting our web servers, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, and providing customer service. These companies and individuals may have access to your personal information solely for the purpose and to the extent necessary to perform their functions.
Except as otherwise agreed to by Spicefire, all other feedback, comments, documents, portfolios, messages, and statements that you choose to submit to Spicefire by any means — whether by email, telephone, letter, postings, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn, social media platforms, or any other means of communication — shall be considered non-confidential and Spicefire is free to use such information on an unrestricted basis. Any personal information that you choose to voluntarily disclose online on discussion boards, comment areas, or chat areas, if such features are made available on the Website, now or in the future, are not protected. You are strongly urged not to post any personal information that you expect to be kept private.
We may disclose any and all information we possess in response to subpoenas, court orders, or legal requirements, and such information may be used by the receiving party to determine your identity, your web usage, online behavior, or other things about you. We generally do not inform users of such requests for information, although we may, in our sole discretion, decide to do so in some cases.
If the Website or Spicefire is sold to, or merges with, another company not owned by Spicefire, you should expect that some or all of the information we collect and possess may be transferred to the buyer or surviving company. If so, Spicefire will seek to obligate the acquiring company to use any personal information transferred in a manner that is consistent with this Policy, but Spicefire cannot guarantee that it will be able to impose that requirement or that the acquiring company will comply.
