BoardReady Privacy Policy

Introduction

BoardReadyIndex, LLC, doing business as BoardReady (“BoardReady”) is committed to protecting your privacy. BoardReady’s goal is to use data and intelligent data science techniques to help drive corporate boardroom diversity.  We have prepared this Privacy Policy to describe to you our practices regarding the personal information we collect from users (“User(s)”) of our website located at www.boardready.io (the “Site”). This Privacy Policy only applies to this BoardReady website. 

Types of Data We Collect

Information You Provide to Us

The purpose of our Site is to provide information about BoardReady, provide BoardReady’s Talent Vault service offering which helps entities find qualified diverse candidates for consideration for executive and board-level positions (the “Services”), and a means for a User to contact us for further information or follow up.   

If you participate in the Services, we will collect any personal information you provide about yourself, including your education background, demographics, your job history, accomplishments, and other information relevant to your seeking an executive-level or board-level position. This information may further be updated through email, phone, or in-person interaction between you and BoardReady. 

If you provide us feedback or contact us via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail, to send you a reply.

We may also collect personal information at other points in our Service that state that personal information is being collected.

Information Collected via Technology

Log Files. 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, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We may use third parties to analyze trends and User movement around the Site, administer the Site, gather demographic information about our User base, and better tailor our Site to our Users’ needs.

Cookies. Like many online services, we may use cookies to collect information. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our Site. This type of information is collected to make the Site more useful to you and to tailor the experience with us to meet your special interests and needs.

Traffic Analytics. We use a limited number of third-party service providers to help analyze how users use the Site (“Analytics Companies”). These Analytics Companies use Cookies to collect information such as how often users visit the Site, and what other sites they used prior to coming to the Site. We use the information we get from these Analytics Companies only to improve our Site. These Analytics Companies collect only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit the Site, rather than your name or other personally identifying information. We may combine the information generated through the use of our Analytics Companies with your personal information. Although these Analytics Companies may plant a persistent Cookie on your web browser or mobile device to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit the Service, the Cookie cannot be used by anyone but the Analytics Company that placed the applicable Cookie. This Policy does not apply to and we are not responsible for the Cookies used by these Analytics Companies.
