Your Privacy is Very Important to Us.

At Skill Set Connect, you come first. For all the decisions we make, and in everything we do, we take you into consideration and make sure we understand as best as possible how our actions may affect you. This includes our approach to privacy.

We respect your privacy and it is one of our top priorities to protect it. Our policy stipulates that:

We protect your personal information and will only provide it to third parties: (1) with your consent; (2) where it is necessary to carry out your instructions; (3) as reasonably necessary in order to provide our features and functionality to you; (4) when we reasonably believe it is required by law, subpoena or other legal process; or (5) as necessary to enforce our User Agreement or protect the rights, property, or safety of Skill Set Connect, our members and visitors, and the public.

We may modify this Privacy Policy from time to time, and if we make material changes to it, we will provide notice through our Service, or by other means so that you may review the changes before you continue to use our Services.

If you object to any changes, you may discontinue use of this website. Continuing to use our Services after we publish or communicate a notice about any changes to this Privacy Policy means that you are consenting to the changes.

Customer Service
We collect information when you contact us for customer support.

When you contact our customer support services, we may have to access your contributions to our Services and collect the information we need to categorize your question, respond to it, and, if applicable, investigate any breach of our User Agreement or this Privacy Policy. We also use this information to track potential problems and trends and customize our support responses to better serve you. We do not use this information for advertising.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to ‘remember’ you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a ’session cookie’) or for multiple repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as ‘first party cookies’), or by other websites who serve up content on that site (‘third party cookies’).

We use cookies and similar technologies to collect information. We use cookies and similar technologies, including mobile application identifiers, to help us recognize you across different Services, remember your website preferences, improve your experience, increase security, measure use and effectiveness of our Services, and serve advertising. You can control cookies through your browser settings and other tools.

Skill Set Connect visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Skill Set Connect websites, with the drawback that certain features of Skill Set Connect websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

We may make use of cookies for a variety of different purposes. These include those that are ‘strictly necessary’ for technical reasons; those that enable a personalized experience for visitors and registered users; and those that allow the display of advertising from selected third party networks. Some of these cookies may be set when a page is loaded, or when a visitor takes a particular action, such as clicking the ‘like’ or ‘follow’ button on a post. Some cookies are only set if a visitor is a registered user, whilst others are set for all visitors upon certain actions.

By visiting our Services, you consent to the placement of cookies and beacons in your browser and HTML-based emails in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

We target (and measure the performance of) ads to Members, Visitors and others both on and off of our Services through a variety of ad networks and ad exchanges, using the following, whether separately or combined:

Advertising technologies on and off of our Services, like web beacons, pixels, ad tags, cookies, and mobile identifiers as permitted by mobile platforms;
Member-provided account and contact information and categories, along with profile information (for example, location, affiliations, or more);
Information from 3rd parties (e.g. advertising partners, publishers and data aggregators) which we use in addition to the information from our cookies (and similar technologies), your profile and use of our Services.
We do not share your personal information with any third-party advertisers or ad networks for advertising without your separate permission. Note that, your username name is visible to other Members and through public search. Also, advertising partners may associate personal information collected by the advertiser directly from you with our cookies and similar technologies.

Sponsored content will be labelled. If you take social action (for example, if you “like” or “comment” on the sponsored content), your action may be seen by your network and other Members who are shown the sponsored content after you have acted on it.
