We also collect personal data on certain areas of the Sites when you register for or apply for jobs through the GoQuant Recruitment Portal, create a user profile, register for GoQuant newsletters and alerts, participate in our alumni activities through our Alumni Center Website, sign up for conferences and events, and/or participate in public user posting areas (such as bulletin boards, discussion forums and surveys). The personal data collected varies and may include information that you provide, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, and background information required to apply for a job. We may also automatically collect information about the devices you use to interact with our Sites. The information we automatically collect may include IP address, device identifier, web browser, and browsing information collected through cookies, web beacons, pixels, clear gifs, and other similar technologies (collectively “Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies”) on our Sites.

The information automatically collected may be associated with a unique identifier as well as with any other personal data you have provided. GoQuant may also collect personal data about you from third parties, such as data brokers or aggregators, in the course of its business activities including in connection with some client services. This includes demographic, professional and other information that is publicly available online, including information you choose to make public through social media platforms and other public online forums. We may combine this data with existing information we have about you or use it independently, for the purposes of our benchmarking and data analytics activities (e.g., analysis of recruiting practices across an industry, detecting fraud patterns in connection with financial transactions, foot traffic in retail environments). We will always seek to confirm that the third party has provided transparent information about its use of this data, including its disclosure to third parties like GoQuant, in compliance with applicable law.
Our Sites do not track you by collecting personal data about your online activities over time and across third party websites or online services. Accordingly, we do not alter our data collection and use practices in response to “do not track” signals transmitted from web browsers.
In connection with our mobile applications, GoQuant may use third party service providers to analyze user activity to fix errors, monitor usage, and improve the performance of the mobile applications. For example, GoQuant receives reports on some of our mobile applications’ aggregate usage and browsing patterns, including information about the type of device used, posts accessed, and other events occurring within our apps. GoQuant also receives reports on certain errors occurring within mobile applications. In addition, our GoQuant Insights app offers a personalized list of recommendations (called “Insights for you”) directing you to GoQuant content that we think you will find interesting. Recommendations are based solely on what you have viewed in the Insights app. A unique user identifier that is generated by the app helps personalize your app experience and tracks the posts that you read in the app. We do not share your viewing history or trends through the Insights app with other users or any external third parties (i.e., persons or entities that are not affiliates or third party service providers of GoQuant).
