The following outlines the information collected by our site, how it is used, and how you can change recorded information or have it discarded.
Collection of non-personal information
To measure website usage and to analyze ways to make our site more effective, we collect data about visitors to our website such as browser type, platform type, time and date of visit, and IP addresses. The information collected is not personally identifiable. IP addresses we collect are not traced, pinged, or correlated to individuals. The non-personal information collected on cognosante.com is shared with third-party service providers who provide site usage analysis on our behalf.
Collection of personally identifiable information
Certain visitors to cognosante.com choose to interact with us in ways that require the collection of personally identifiable information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, those who choose to contact us are asked to provide their name and email address. At the current time, downloading material from our website such as white papers does not require user registration; in the future access to such content might first require registration with our site, in which case name and email address (at a minimum) would also be collected. In all cases, we collect such information only as necessary or appropriate to fulfill the specific request or complete the action initiated by the visitor. Cognosante does not disclose personally identifiable information other than as described below.
Cognosante uses the general email addresses, firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, to allow visitors to contact us to send feedback, ask questions, or request additional information. We also use firstname.lastname@example.org to allow applicants for employment with Cognosante to inquire about the status of their applications. Our Contact Us page also allows visitors to contact Cognosante through the use of a contact form. All information provided to us through these communication methods is used to respond to the request. We may store your name, title, company name, address, phone number, fax number, email address, or other contact information. None of this information is disseminated to any third parties. You can correct any of this information, or request that we remove this information from our records, at any time by writing to us at the address above.
The Cognosante website allows visitors to submit their resumes to our company via email or online through our Careers site. Resumes received via either method will be held in confidence and used only for the purpose of considering the submitting party for employment.
