FloodGate Privacy Policy

Your confidentiality is important to us, and Floodgate Medical, Inc. ("Floodgate" or "We" or "Us") is firmly committed to protecting the privacy of the users of the Floodgate Service. We do not sell or rent your company or personal information to others. We use customer information only for the purposes of setting up your account, delivering our service, enhancing the operation of our site and administering our systems. Please read this privacy policy before using this site or any services related to it. By using the services provided both online and offline, you are bound by this policy, which may be modified from time to time. If you do not agree to and abide by this policy or any future terms, you may not use the Floodgate Service provided by Floodgate.

FloodGate is the operator of www.floodgatemedical.com, app.floodgatemedical.com and the services related to these websites (collectively referred to as the "Floodgate Service"). This Privacy Policy describes the type of information Floodgate collects when you use the Floodgate Service, what we do with that information, and how visitors can update and control the use of information using the Floodgate Service. This Policy applies solely to our online data collection from the Floodgate Service; it does not describe information collection policies for other data we collect, including data collected on other sites, such as separate sites operated by our Business Partners that we do not control.

Personal Information
"Personal Information" is information that you provide to us which personally identifies you, such as your name, email address or billing information, or other data, which can be reasonably linked to such information by Floodgate. Personal Information is different than Aggregate Non-Personal Information. "Aggregate Non-Personal Information" is information that is recorded about users and collected into groups so that it no longer reflects or references an individually identifiable user. We do not collect any Personal Information from a user of the Floodgate service unless that visitor expressly and intentionally provides it. Floodgate does not collect any Personal Information revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, health, or sex life, unless such information is required to comply with applicable laws or regulations, such as those relating to affirmative action. If you are simply browsing the Floodgatemedical.com site, we do not gather any Personal Information about you. Floodgate may collect Aggregate Non-Personal Information that is not associated with you individually to assist Floodgate in improving the services offered through the Floodgate Service. In some instances, we may combine Non-Personal Information with Personal Information (such as embedding email addresses in cookies). If we do combine any Non-Personal Information with Personal Information, the combined information will be treated by us as Personal Information hereunder as long as it is so combined.

Electronic Resume
We provide functionality on the Floodgate Service that allows you to create an electronic profile, which includes enhanced features determined by FloodGate (each such electronic profile, a "Electronic Resume") and post certain information and materials on your Electronic Resume. Please note that your Electronic Resume, including the Personal Information available in your Electronic Resume, may be accessible to employers when you accept an invitation for a job either directly or through an authorized recruiter. We urge you to exercise discretion and caution when deciding to disclose your Personal Information, or any other information, in your Electronic Resume. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE USE BY OTHERS OF ANY Personal Information YOU DISCLOSE IN YOUR Electronic Resume. You should also be aware that Floodgate may categorize, arrange or summarize certain information differently for different Users of the Floodgate Service. What you see when you use the Floodgate Service may be arranged differently than and contain different information than what other users of the Floodgate Service see.

Automatically Gathered Information
Floodgate automatically collects your browser type and browser software version to tailor the presentation of the Floodgate Service to your platform and to maintain a record of your activity on the site. Floodgate uses cookies to enable Users to specify unique preferences and to track User trends and patterns. Users always have the option of disabling cookies via their browser preferences. If you disable cookies on your browser, please note that some parts of our site may not function or may be considerably slower. As an automatic process, our web server software records a log file of the Internet Protocol ("IP") addresses that access the Floodgate Service. Your IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). This number is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever you visit the Floodgatge Service, along with the time(s) of your visit(s) and the page(s) that you visited. We use your IP address, and the IP addresses of all users, for purposes such as calculating Floodgatge Service usage levels, helping diagnose problems with the Floodgatge Service's servers, and administering the Floodgatge Service. We can and will use IP address to identify a User when we, in our sole discretion, determine that it is necessary to enforce compliance with our Terms of Use or to protect our service, site, customers or others. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice on the Internet and is done automatically by many web sites.

Users of the FloodGate Service
Except as described above, FloodGate does not collect or require users of the Floodgate Service to furnish personally-identifiable information. Like most website operators, FloodGate collects non-personally-identifiable information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. FloodGate's purpose in collecting non-personally identifiable information is to better understand how FloodGate' visitors use the Floodgate Service. From time to time, FloodGate may release non-personally-identifiable information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in usage of the Floodgate Service. FloodGate also automatically collects some computer generated personally identifiable information such as your Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. FloodGate does not use such information to identify its visitors, does not link the information to other personally identifiable information about you, nor does it disclose such information to third parties, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifiable information, as described below, should you decide to identify yourself to us.

Collection and treatment of personal Information
Certain visitors to FloodGate' website choose to interact with FloodGate in ways that require FloodGate and others to know a little bit more about them through personally-identifiable information. The amount and type of information that FloodGate gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, employers wishing to fill jobs through our Floodgate Service must supply a name, company name, address, industry, company website, company size, company description, personal description, telephone number, email address, screen name, etc. Recruiters and others service and business partners who are accepted by FloodGate and become eligible to assist FloodGate in the filling of jobs must supply a name, company name, address, telephone number, fax number, email address, company website, company description, personal description, screen name, password, etc. Potential employees who are seekin jobs must provide name, alias, postal address, telephone number, email address, profession, industry knowledge, and resume information including: contact information, career summary, career objective, work history, educational history, skills, certifications, clearances, references, as well as portfolio information containing Personal Information you may want to attach in your communications including: documents, multimedia items such as video or audio clips or photographs, charts, and external links to Personal Information you wish to reference, only when you voluntarily provide it to us.

In each case, FloodGate collects information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with FloodGate. FloodGate will not disclose sensitive financial information unless required by law. FloodGate does not disclose any other type of personally-identifiable information other than as described below.
