Staffparty may also collect certain non-personally identifiable information relating to you and/or your use of the Staffparty Services (“Non-Personally Identifiable Information”), including aggregated, anonymized information concerning your use of the Staffparty Services. For example, Staffparty may collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information regarding the pages and services that you access through the Staffparty Services, and information concerning the browser(s) and Internet platform service provider(s) used to access the Staffparty Services. For more information, see Use of De-Identified Information and Aggregated User Data below.
How We Use the Personal Information We Collect:
Staffparty's uses of Personal Information:
- to administer, monitor, moderate, and improve the Staffparty Services

- to implement and provide you with Staffparty Services customized to your needs
- to send important notices or other communications to you about the products and services offered by Staffparty and our selected partners
- to update terms, conditions, and policies
- for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis and research, to improve our content and advertising, and to develop, deliver, understand performance, and improve the Staffparty Services, customer communications, internal market research, project planning, troubleshooting problems, and to detect and protect against error, fraud or other criminal activity
- to administer any promotions or other activities that you are involved in using the Staffparty Services
- to create aggregated anonymous analytical data
We may also disclose your Personal Information as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, bankruptcy proceedings, or similar legal process when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request. Your Personal Information could be transferred to or acquired by a third-party in the event of a Staffparty merger or acquisition. You will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on the Site, of any change in ownership, uses of your Personal Information, and choices you may have regarding your Personal Information. We may also disclose your Personal Information to any other third-party with your prior consent.
User Access and Choice
If your Personal Information changes, or if you no longer desire our Staffparty Services, you may correct, update, amend, delete/remove, ask to have it removed from a public forum, directory or testimonial on our Site or deactivate it by making the change on our member information page or by emailing our Customer Support at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe.
We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you the Staffparty Services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
Staffparty and our analytics providers use technologies such as cookies, beacons, tags, and scripts, to analyze trends, administer the Site, track users’ movements around the Site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual and aggregated basis.
We may also occasionally use “web beacons” (also known as “clear gifs,” “web bugs,” “1-pixel gifs,” etc.) that allow us to collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information about your response to our email communications, and for other purposes. Web beacons are tiny images, placed on a web page or email that can tell us if you have visited a particular area of the Site. For example, if you have given us permission to send you emails, we may send you an email urging you to use a certain feature of the Site. If you do respond to that email and use that feature, the web beacon will tell us that our email communication with you has been successful. Because web beacons are used in conjunction with persistent cookies (described above), if you set your browser to decline or deactivate cookies, web beacons cannot function.
Internet Protocol (“IP”) Address
We collect the IP address of all visitors to our website. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help us diagnose problems with our server, administer our website, analyze trends, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use to improve our site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to Personal Information. As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include IP addresses, browser type, ISP, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data.
We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve the services we offer you, to improve marketing, analytics, or site functionality.
How Staffparty Uses Email
We may use a third-party vendor to help us manage some of our email communications with you. Although we may supply this vendor with email addresses of those,we wish them to contact, your email address is never used for any purpose other than to communicate with you on our behalf. When you click on a link in an email, you may temporarily be redirected through one of the vendor’s servers (although this process will be invisible to you) which will register that you have clicked on that link, and have visited our Staffparty Services. We never share any information, other than your email address, with our third-party email vendor, which does not share these email addresses with anyone else. You may opt-out at any time by clicking on the Unsubscribe link at the bottom of these emails.
User Profiles and Submissions
Certain user profile information, including your name, location, and any video or image content that you upload to the Staffparty Services may be displayed to other users to facilitate user interaction within the Staffparty Services. You may limit the profile information that can be seen by others by adjusting your account privacy settings. Please remember that any content you upload to your public user profile, along with any Personal Information or content that you voluntarily disclose online in a manner other users can view (on discussion boards and in messages, etc.) becomes publicly available, and can be collected and used by others. Staffparty reserves the right to delete any comments it deems inappropriate, at Staffparty's sole discretion. Your user name may also be displayed to other users if and when you send messages or comments through the Staffparty Services, and other users can contact you through messages and comments.

Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy
Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. The Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”) defines a “Child” as anyone under the age of 13. Staffparty strictly adheres to COPPA. For that reason, we do not collect or maintain information obtained through the Staffparty Services from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our Site is structured to attract anyone under 13.
Although we work hard to protect personal information that we collect and store, no program is 100% secure and we cannot guarantee that our safeguards will prevent every unauthorized attempt to access, use or disclose personal information. Staffparty maintains security and incident response plans to handle incidents involving unauthorized access to private information we collect or store.
