Cookies and Log Files

Like many companies, we use cookies and log files on our Website. Cookies are small text files that Websites often store on the computer hard drives of visitors to their sites. A cookie contains a unique code, which is used to recognize your computer when a user of your computer returns to a Website that was visited previously. Log files are small text files that websites automatically create when a user visits a site. We use cookies and log files to enhance the online experience of our visitors and to better understand how our site is used. Cookies and log files may tell us, for example, whether you have visited our site before or whether you are a new visitor. The service provider we have retained to help us conduct recruitment-related activities also uses cookies to help process online job applications.

The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new cookie, and how to disable existing cookies. Remember, though, without cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of all Website features, such as submitting a resume online to pursue career opportunities with Iron Vine.

Information We Share

We do not sell, rent, trade or otherwise disclose personal information about our Website visitors, except as described here. We may share the information you provide with companies that are affiliated with Iron Vine. We also share information provided by our Website visitors with service providers we have retained to perform services on our behalf (e.g. to assist with recruiting activities and visitor analytics). In addition, we may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law or legal process, (ii) to law enforcement authorities or other government officials, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity.

We reserve the right to transfer any information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to try to ensure that the transferee uses personal information you have provided through this Website in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Notice.
