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 type of data Salary collects and processes falls into two broad categories: information and data Salary collects for its own purposes through its Websites and other means (“Salary Collected Data”) and information and data Salary’s Customer’s provided to it for processing in connection with Salary’s Service(s) (“Customer Data”).
Customer Data consists of data provided to Salary by Salary’s Customers including, but not limited to, Personal Information about the Customer’s employees. Customer Data is collected by Salary’s Customers or their agents and is provided to Salary in the course of a Customer’s use of Salary’s Service(s). Salary only uses Customer Data to provide the Service(s) to the applicable Customer, in an aggregated and anonymous format to enrich its market data and compensation databases, and as permitted by the agreement between the Customer and Salary.

1.4. Customer Data
In the course of Salary’s Customers’ use of any Service(s), Customer may load Personal Information concerning their employees, contractors, and/or other individuals into the Service(s) and use the Service(s) to process, handle, or store such information.

You may also provide information about third parties, such as your employer, your employees, or your employer's employees ("Third Party Information") (together with Personal Information, the "Collected Information").

The Collected Information allows Salary to provide the Websites and Service to you, to collect statistics about the usage and effectiveness of its Websites, its Service, and other services, products, and offerings, to determine whether you've opened an email or clicked on a link contained in an email, and to personalize your experience and tailor Salary interactions with you.
2.1.2. 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.

5.1. Service Providers
Salary may employ other companies, individuals, or consultants to provide services to users, customers, and prospects. You agree that Salary may share the Collected Information with such service providers in order to provide information, products, and/or services to you. For example, Salary may use such service providers to host data and information, send and receive emails, analyze data, provide marketing assistance, process credit card payments, and provide customer service. 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.
Salary uses reasonable physical, administrative and technical safeguards to help protect the Collected Information 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.

In order to protect your privacy and security, Salary will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting you access to your Personal Information and may limit or deny access to any information where providing such access would be unreasonable, burdensome, or expensive in the circumstances.
