Philosophy

StartupZone holds the privacy and security of our site visitors and members in the highest regard. The following information explains what kind of information is gathered on our site and how that information is used.

We can be reached via email at startupzone at g mail dot com. Please bring to our attention any instance where you feel these policies have been violated.

What's collected and what's not?

You can visit the public parts of our site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information. While IP addresses (the Internet address of a computer) are logged to track a user's session, the user remains anonymous. Tracking IP addresses gives us an idea of which parts of our site users are visiting and how long they spend there. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that a user's session is tracked, but the user is anonymous. The user's browser also lets us know the type of computer and operating system being used.

In order to access certain subscriber services and restricted areas (the "Restricted Services") within StartupZone, we require that you provide certain identifying information and personal data (the "Registration Data") listed in the online registration forms.  StartupZone reserves the right to request any additional information necessary to establish and maintain your account for use of the Restricted Services.  The Restricted Services within StartupZone can be found in the following areas: "General Users," "Startup Companies," "Job Seekers", and "B2B vendors". As these Restricted Areas are members-only, password-protected Web site areas , naturally, we will know who those visitors are.

We capture the email addresses of only those public site visitors who sign up for one or more of our subscriptions.

How is email information used?

Email addresses are used by StartupZone to send email for the following purposes:  (1) to send Subscriptions to users who have requested that service; (2) to send an initial, one time greeting to each new member; and (3) to send promotional materials to members who have opted-in for such notifications as part of the registration process.  We do not sell, rent, or loan our email lists to outside firms.

How do I remove my name from mailing lists to which I previously subscribed?

If you do not wish to receive any special offers or communications from StartupZone, you have the right to select the "opt out" option during the registration process or at any time afterwards.  You may "opt out" by clicking on Subscriptions in our Registration page or Member login page and placing the appropriate check in the box entitled "I would like to subscribe to StartupZone Newsletter." and/or "I would like to subscribe to StartupZone Promotional E-mail".

Uses of Registration Data

All submitted information including any resumes, personal information, or other data which you post to or transmit through StartupZone site by email or otherwise are and will be treated as non-proprietary and non-confidential. StartupZone reserves the right, and you specifically grant the right, for us to refuse, delete, edit, and modify any submitted information.

StartupZone reserves the right, and you specifically grant the right, for us to collect, refuse, edit, use, store, maintain, transfer, and delete your Registration Data.

Your Resume

Since StartupZone is a career site, we give you the option of placing your resume in our database. There are two ways of doing this:

1) Private feature: You can store your resume in our database, but not allow it to be searchable by potential employers. If you do not allow your resume to be searchable, you can use your resume to apply for a job online but employers will not have access to it through a search of our resume database

2) Public feature: If you allow your resume to be searchable, then all employers and recruiters who pay for access to our resume database will have access to your resume. We use our efforts to grant access to this database only to paying employers, hiring managers, human resource professionals, and selected recruiters, but we cannot guarantee that other parties will not, without our consent, gain access to this database. You may remove your resume from our searchable database at any time. However, employers and recruiters who have paid for access to the database, and other parties who have otherwise gained access to the database, may have retained a copy of your resume in their own files or databases. We are not responsible for the retention, use, or privacy of resumes in these instances, or for the use or privacy of resumes by any of such parties while resumes are in the database.

In both cases, StartupZone may collect Registration Data for use in connection with its operation of an executive search consultancy for senior management professionals and technical professionals. StartupZone may release Registration Data protected by Your User ID and password to StartupZone clients such as potential employers or other third parties such as StartupZone business partners only with your express consent, unless releasing such information is otherwise required by applicable law, statute, regulation, ordinance, or court order. Where StartupZone does release Your Registration Data to StartupZone clients or business partners, StartupZone will first require them to agree to use such Registration Data in accordance with this Privacy Policy and only for the purposes for which it was collected.

Cookies
To enhance your experience at StartupZone, we use a feature on your Internet browser called a "cookie". Cookies are small files that your Web browser places on your computer's hard drive. We use cookies for remembering user names and passwords. You have the option of setting your browser to reject cookies. This policy does not cover the use of cookies by any third-party advertisers whose banner ads appear on this site. StartupZone does not have direct control over or access to any information collected via such banner ads.

What levels of security does StartupZone have?

The Restricted Services are available to only our members, and are password protected.
StartupZone encrypts your credit card number prior to transmission over the Internet using secure socket layer (SSL) encryption technology, which provides data encryption, server authentication, and message integrity. Those parties submitting information to StartupZone that have a security concern sending certain information over the Internet should use one of the three alternative methods of: phone number, fax, or postal mail.

User Access to Information Collected

You may access your Registration Data at any time through the Subscriber services section of the Site.  This area is password-restricted for your protection.  In order for a General User to change or modify its password, and/or user nameand, such user must send an email to the following address: startupzone at g mail dot com.  It will be possible for a Startup or Job Seeker to update, change, or modify all of its detailed Registration Data (other than its password and user name) by accessing the relevant registration page and updating the form from that location.  In order for a Startup or Job Seeker to change or modify its password, user name, and contact information, it must send an email to the following address: startupzone at g mail dot com.

Lost or Stolen Information


If you lose your password, you may re-acquire it from the link found in the upper right-hand corner of the StartupZone home page.  If your password is stolen or used without your permission, immediately notify StartupZone.  Upon notification StartupZone will cancel your password and update its records. You may be unable to access certain services while StartupZone processes the password change.

Cancellation

You may cancel your membership at any time by sending an e-mail to startupzone at g mail dot com. 

Use of Aggregated Information

StartupZone reserves the right to disclose to third parties information about subscriber usage of the StartupZone Web site and any related services, including information gathered during your use of the Site.  Any information disclosed will be in the form of aggregate data (such as overall patterns or demographic reports) that does not describe or identify any individual user.

Updates

StartupZone reserves the right to change or update this Privacy Policy, or any other StartupZone policy or practice, at any time with reasonable notice to users of the Site.  Any changes or updates will be effective immediately upon posting to the Site.
