This summary is intended to provide a high-level overview of Salary’s privacy and data collection practices – for more details, please refer to the relevant sections below. The types of data Salary collects and processes fall into two broad categories: data Salary collects for its own purposes through its Websites and other means (“Salary Collected Data”) and data provided by Salary’s Customers in connection with their use of the Service (“Customer Data”).
Customer Data consists of all data uploaded or otherwise submitted into the Service by a Customer. Customer Data may include Personal Information, e.g., information about the Customer’s employees.

2. Salary Collected Data
2.1. What Categories of Information Do We Collect?
As part of your use and access to the Websites and/or the Service, we may ask you to share certain categories of data and we or our partners may collect other categories of data (together, the ”Salary Collected Data”). Salary Collected Data includes:
Personal Information. Personal Information is information that that identifies, relates to, describes, or is reasonably capable of being associated with a particular person, including:
Your name and contact information.
Information about your employment, including compensation.
Payment information. If you purchase a subscription to the Service or any other product or service, Salary may collect and process your payment information, including credit card numbers and billing information, using third party service providers which are PCI-compliant.
Certain information about your use of the Websites, such as your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. (Some jurisdictions consider IP addresses to be Personal information. While an IP address alone does not identify a specific person, it can be used together with other types of information to do so).
Other User Information. We may also collect other, non-identifying information associated with your use of the Websites or the Services, such as browser type, referral source, length of visit and pages viewed, actions taken and pages viewed on the Websites or in the Service, next URL visited (regardless of whether it is a Salary Website), and other similar information. We collect this information using tracking technologies such as cookies or other similar technologies. Please see below for more information.
Third-Party Information. You may also provide information about third parties, such as your employer, your employees, or your employer’s employees.
2.2. How do we Collect Information?

Salary collects information (i) when you fill out information forms, (ii) when you buy or download products or services, (iv) when you use the Services, and (iv) when you interact with us or other customers on or through the Websites or the Services, including on line chat rooms or message boards.

2.2.3. Clear Gifs
Salary and its partners may also employ clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help Salary better manage content on the Websites and in the Service by informing Salary what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.
2.2.4. Log Files
Salary gathers certain information about a visitor's visit, access, and use of the Websites and/or the Service and stores such information in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and click stream data. Salary may use this information to analyze trends, to administer the Websites and the Service, to track visitors' movements around the Websites and the Service and to gather demographic information about our visitor base as a whole.

Salary will ensure that all such service providers adhere to privacy, security, and data handling practices at least as protective as Salary’s own privacy, security, and data handling practices.
You agree that Salary may share the Salary Collected Data with such service providers for the above purposes.
Salary uses reasonable physical, administrative and technical safeguards to help protect the Salary Collected Data from unauthorized access, use and disclosure. For example, when a customer places an order online through any of Salary’s Websites, the customer’s credit card, personal information, employee and related account information is protected through the use of a secure encryption such as the Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) protocol.
