Website Terms of Service and Privacy Policy

Effective Date: August 22, 2006

Introduction
As sole owner of all information collected on this web site, Kaye/Bassman International is committed to protecting the privacy of your personal data. This statement summarizes our web site’s policies regarding the collection, use and transfer of your personal data, the security measures Kaye/Bassman International employs to protect such data and your right to access.

The Information We Collect
Kaye/Bassman International is an executive search firm and collects a variety of personal data necessary to provide such services in a proprietary and highly confidential database accessible only by Kaye/Bassman International. Categories of personally identifiable data include: career history, education history, professional experience, resume/CV and contact information. By choosing to enter your personal information on this web site, you indicate your willingness to disclose this information to Kaye/Bassman International and to be considered, when appropriate, for one of Kaye/Bassman International confidential executive searches. If you do not wish to disclose your personal information, Kaye/Bassman International will be unable to provide you the services offered by this web site, since employment, educational and other personal information is necessary in order to assess your employment opportunities.

It is not Kaye/Bassman International’s policy to seek any sensitive information through our web site unless legally required for recruitment purposes. Sensitive information includes data relating to race or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or similar beliefs, trade union membership, physical or mental health, sexual life, or criminal record. We suggest that you do not provide sensitive information of this nature. If you do wish to provide sensitive information for any reason, Kaye/Bassman International accepts your explicit consent to use that information in the ways described in this Privacy Policy or as described at the point where you choose to disclose.

How We Use and Disclose Personally Identifying Information
In order to present you as a potential candidate to potential employers (Kaye/Bassman International clients), your personal information may be shared with clients and/or transferred between Kaye/Bassman International’s worldwide affiliates, subsidiaries and licensees (Kaye/Bassman International’s licensees are only associated with Kaye/Bassman International and are not affiliated with any other search firm). Each Kaye/Bassman International entity is committed to implementing the appropriate data integrity and security measures required of the country in which it resides in order to protect your information.

By choosing to enter your personal information on this web site you indicate your willingness to share and have your information transferred between Kaye/Bassman International’s worldwide affiliates, subsidiaries and licensees and to be considered, when appropriate, for one of Kaye/Bassman International’s confidential executive searches. A complete list of our offices can be found by visiting our web site at www.kbic.com. If you object to your information being shared and transferred in such manner or if you do not wish to participate in this service and benefit from the executive career searches that Kaye/Bassman International provides, please do not enter your personal information into the web site.

Your personal information is used only for the intended purposes stated at the time of collection. Kaye/Bassman International does not sell or share your personal information for related or unrelated purposes to non-licensee third parties, unless otherwise stated at the time of collection or required by law. If at any time we decide to use personal data in a manner different from that stated as the time it was collected, we will notify you and give you a choice as to whether or not we use your information in this different manner. No notification and choice will be sought, however, if Kaye/Bassman International is compelled or required by applicable law, statute, regulation, ordinance or court order to disclose personal data.

How We Use and Disclose Non-Personally Identifying Information
Your personal information may also be used anonymously and in the aggregate in order to put together industry, marketing and employment statistics. Used in this matter, your personal information becomes non-identifying. Kaye/Bassman International also monitors IP addresses for security purposes, trend analysis, web site administration, user movement tracking and broad demographic information gathering for aggregate use. The IP address of the computer you use to access www.kbic.com is not linked to any personal information you provide on the web site.

Information Security and Integrity
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain accuracy of data and ensure proper use of information, www.kbic.com has put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial security procedures to safeguard all information collected online. In addition to requiring all users to sign in with a unique username and password (used for user authentication only), all sections of the web site in which personal information is submitted or exchanged employ industry-standard SSL encryption and are authenticated by Thawte.

We will not process your personal information in a way that is incompatible with what is outlined in the Privacy Statement, and will use our best efforts to ensure that data is accurate, complete, current and reliable for its intended use. We also will use our best efforts to protect your information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
