Privacy Policy for BenefitsLink

BenefitsLink.com, Inc. ("we" or "BenefitsLink") respects the privacy of our users. We have created this policy in order to demonstrate our privacy commitment to users of BenefitsLink.com ("BenefitsLink").

We will not distribute information that identifies you individually or reveals your identity (herein called "Identifying Information"), such as your email address, unless you give your prior approval in response to a request made by BenefitsLink or unless distribution of that information is permitted under this Privacy Policy.

We can provide Identifying Information to other parties if required by law, court order, or an enforceable request from a government or law enforcement authority.

Identifying Information will be available to other users of BenefitsLink to the extent you choose to post the information onto our message boards, the Speakers Database or another such public forum on BenefitsLink.

We may collect and use information about you and your use of BenefitsLink, including Identifying Information, for our own internal purposes such as, for example, analyzing usage of BenefitsLink in order to improve them. BenefitsLink logs IP addresses for systems administration, diagnostic, and site tracking purposes, and to report aggregate information to advertisers. BenefitsLink does not link IP addresses to information identifying users individually.

We may use or distribute information about you and your use of BenefitsLink in ways that do not identify you individually or reveal your identity.

Companies that advertise on BenefitsLink may ask for Identifying Information from you (e.g., in connection with offers to provide free samples of their goods). If you provide this information to the advertiser, any use of that information by the advertiser is not covered by this Privacy Policy, which does not cover use of Identifying Information by parties other than BenefitsLink.

When you purchase products or services through the BenefitsLink Store, Identifying Information included with your order is provided to the vendors of the products or services (e.g., a book publisher who needs the information to ship a book to you). Such a vendor might choose to make further use of that information, which would not be covered by this Privacy Policy.

In the course of its business, BenefitsLink might buy or sell sites or assets. In these kinds of transactions, customer information (such as Identifying Information) usually is one of the transferred business assets. In the event that BenefitsLink, its subsidiaries or affiliates is acquired, merged, or otherwise combined with another party, customer information (such as Identifying Information) will be one of the transferred assets. We will not engage in such a transaction unless the other party or parties agrees to continue to honor this Privacy Policy with respect to any Identifying Information we have collected through the date of the transaction. (Please note that the Privacy Policy thereafter would be subject to change upon providing proper notice to you, as described elsewhere in this Privacy Policy.)

BenefitsLink may use other companies and persons to perform certain functions for us. These functions might include, for example, processing credit card payments, providing customer service, and sending e-mail. These other companies and persons may have access to customer information (such as Identifying Information) that's needed to perform their functions, but they are not authorized to use it for any other purposes.

Correcting Personal Information
The user is provided with a mechanism to modify any Identifying Information that has been registered with the site.
  • On our message boards, the user's profile can be accessed at http://benefitslink.com/boards/index.php?s=&act=UserCP&CODE=00. After providing his or her message board username and password, the resulting page will display the most current personal information that the user has given us. The user may modify this information by overwriting the text boxes with new data. The new data will be stored as the user's profile in the message boards database. Please be aware that disclosing personally identifiable information online through our message boards makes the information submitted public information; such disclosure may increase your chance of receiving "spam" or unsolicited email. Users should be extra careful and use discretion when disclosing information online.
  • In the listing of Employee Benefits Candidates (resumes) on our EmployeeBenefitsJobs.com sister site, the user's resume can be accessed at http://employeebenefitsjobs.com/jobs/candidates_by_title.html. The user then would click on the link at the top of the resulting page that says "Click here to edit or delete this ad." After providing his or her previously-supplied password, the resulting page will display the most current personal information that the user has given us. The user may modify this information by over writing the text boxes with new data, or may specify via a checkbox that the resume is to be deleted entirely. By clicking the "Click to record changes (or delete)" button on that page, this new information will be stored as the user's resume (or will be deleted, if the appropriate checkbox was checked).
Security
BenefitsLink takes precautions to protect our users' information. When users submit information, it is protected both online and offline. BenefitsLink is hosted on a dedicated server that is not shared with any sites that are not also controlled by us. No persons other than BenefitsLink employees have access to computer files used by BenefitsLink.

If you have questions about security at our website, you can send an e-mail to Dave Baker (click).

Cookies
The message boards use a file called a "cookie" to store the user's username and password so that the user doesn't have to re-enter this information each time he or she visits the message boards. The cookie is used only if a username and password are entered into the form on the the message boards table of contents. Users can remove the BenefitsLink site cookie from their computers by clicking the "Now logged in; click if you need to clear cookies (log out)" link on the message boards table of contents. (If that link does not appear, there is no cookie stored on the user's computer.) Advertisers whose ads appear on BenefitsLink may use their own cookies.
Changes to this Privacy Policy
This Privacy Policy is subject to modification from time to time via the posting of a notice at this URL for at least 30 days that the BenefitsLink Privacy Policy has been changed, except that we will send an email to you 30 days before we implement a change in this Privacy Policy that would provide Identifying Information to persons in a way that is not already described in the Privacy Policy. Should you wish to opt-out of such modifications to the Privacy Policy, you may do so by following the instructions that will appear at this URL or in the aforesaid e-mail.
