What personally-identifiable information is collected? Omega collects personally-identifiable information on certain areas of the Site when users register for or apply for jobs through the Omega Recruitment Portal, register for Omega.com newsletters and alerts, participate in our alumni activities, sign up for conferences and events, and participate in user posting areas (such as bulletin boards, discussion forums and surveys). The personally-identifiable information collected may consist of 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. For recruiting purposes, the information collected may include other personally-identifiable information that you include on your resume and information that you submit as part of your application. In addition, Omega collects certain information that you do not visibly enter, such as your IP address, browsing pattern on the Site, click stream data, HTTP protocol elements, and the status of cookies placed on your computer by Omega.
How may Omega use my personally-identifiable information? Omega uses your personally-identifiable information to fulfill your requests for information, publish your letters to the editor or comments, process your requests to participate in conferences and events, evaluate any job applications, recruit personnel, distribute newsletters and alerts to you, personalize content that you view or receive, evaluate and improve our services, and for such other purposes as you may initiate or request. We may keep any of your personally-identifiable information on file and use it to contact you.
How are cookies used? Cookies are small packets of information that are stored by your web browser. They are put on your web browser by the websites that you visit. These packets of information do not contain personal information about you but they do allow us to know if you visit the same website twice or if you visit related websites.
The laws in many European Union countries require you to provide a form of consent before cookies are placed on your web browser unless the cookie is necessary for the website to work.
There is no agreed standard for how companies comply with these laws. We do the following:
To administer our website and for research purposes, Omega has also contracted with third parties to track and analyze anonymous usage and volume statistical information from our visitors and members. Such information is shared externally only on an anonymous, aggregated basis. These third parties use persistent cookies to help us to improve the visitor experience, manage our site content, and track visitor behavior.
Omega has also contracted with a third party to send e-mail to our registered members. To help measure and improve the effectiveness of our e-mail communications, the third party sets cookies. All data collected by this third party on behalf of Omega is used solely by or on behalf of Omega and is shared externally only on an anonymous, aggregated basis.
Omega Recruitment Portal / Omega Retention Program To assist Omega with its staffing and recruitment, Omega has partnered with SalesForce.com to provide the Omega Recruitment Portal. If you provide information through the Recruitment Portal, your personally-identifiable information will be held on servers located in the US, managed by SalesForce.com. SalesForce.com has agreed to provide the same level of privacy and data protection that you enjoy when interacting with this Site and Omega generally.
Through the Omega Recruitment Portal, job candidates can apply for positions with Omega or sign up for the Omega Retention Program where you can be notified of any potential job openings or other similar opportunities that might be of interest to you.
Omega frequently visits recruiting websites and social networks such as LinkedIn. Where users of those websites have made their personally-identifiable information publically available, Omega sometimes collects this information for the Omega Retention Program. If you do not want Omega to retain your personally-identifiable information collected in this way, please opt-out of the Omega Retention Program when notified that your personally-identifiable information has been collected.
Mobile Applications In connection with applications that we make available for mobile devices, Omega may use third-party services to track and analyze nonpersonally identifiable user activity in order to fix errors, monitor usage, and improve the performance of the applications. In particular, Urban Airship tracks whether a user opened an application in response to a specific push notification. Omniture tracks and reports on some of our mobile applications’ usage and browsing patterns, including information about the type of device used, articles accessed, and other events occurring within our apps. Crittercism tracks certain errors occurring within mobile applications. None of these third parties gathers information in a manner intended to identify any particular user personally.
In addition, our Omega Insights app offers a personalized list of recommendations (called “Recommended for you”) pointing out Omega content we think you'll find interesting. Recommendations are based solely on what you've viewed in the Insights app. A unique user identifier that is generated by the app helps by personalizing your experience and tracking the articles you read. We do not share your viewing history or trends with other users or any third parties.
Our mobile applications may include integration with various social-networking sites, including Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, and Twitter. If you enable and use these features within an application, the extent to which your activities and information are tracked is governed by the relevant user agreement you have in place with such a third party.
The Alumni Center, Newsletters, and Alerts By registering with our Alumni Center or for recurring Omega newsletters or alerts, you agree to receive on occasion other correspondence from Omega related to the subscribed newsletters and other Omega news and information that you consented to receive during registration. This type of information is shared externally only in anonymous, aggregated form for generalized user analysis or to enable third party agents to send e-mails to you on our behalf. You will be contacted by e-mail or otherwise only by Omega or it agents.
We ask for your e-mail address at registration. We will send e-mails to this address to confirm your registration, to provide newsletters or alerts and to contact you for any other reason. In addition, we may contact you regarding your account status. If you sign up to receive any of our newsletters, alerts, or surveys, you may on occasion receive other correspondence from Omega. Your e-mail address will not be shared with any third party other than an agent who has agreed to send e-mails on our behalf.
The Site also includes a feature that enables Omega to send links to its content through e-mail at our users' request. The e-mail address(es) that you supply in connection with this service will be used only to send the requested content. They will not be stored or reused for any purpose.
Is personally-identifiable information disclosed to third parties?
Surveys If you participate in a survey, all of our research results are reported as totals or in other aggregated form, and no information about you as an individual respondent is made public.
You should be aware that whenever you publicly disclose information online, that information could be collected and used by others. Omega is not responsible for any action or policies of any third parties who collect information that users publicly disclose in any such forums on the Site.
