Telamon Corporation

Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy discloses the privacy practices for www.telamon.com (“TELAMON”), www.telamonenergy.com (“TELAMON ENERGY”), and any other sites that display authorized links to this policy, including all mobile websites (collectively with TELAMON and TELAMON ENERGY, each a “Site”), provided by Telamon Corporation  (“Telamon Corp.”, “we” or “us”). For individuals in the EU using the Site or Application, Telamon Corp., located at 1000 East 116th Street, Carmel, IN  46032, is considered to be the controller of your data.

This Privacy Policy governs our collection, use, and disclosure of information from and about you, including through your use of the Sites. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully so that you understand our privacy practices. By browsing a Site; installing, downloading, or using any data on the Sites; and/or providing your information to us in any other way, you understand that we will collect, use, and disclose your information in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy. Questions regarding privacy issues should be directed to us at privacy@telamon.com or at the address above.

Types of Information We Collect

The information we gather falls into two categories: (1) information voluntarily supplied by users; (2) information automatically gathered; and (3) information we collect from third parties.

Information You Provide to Us

We collect and store information that you voluntarily supply to us.

When you provide your information on the “Contact Us” webpage, we collect information including your name, e-mail address, and any message contents that you wish us to receive.

When you provide your information in response to a job opening posted on TELAMON or TELAMON ENERGY, we collect the information you provide to us, including your name, e-mail address, physical address, resume, and answers to questions relating to the job posting.

When you sign up for our electronic newsletters, we collect your e-mail address.

When you respond to our surveys, we will collect all the information requested in the surveys, including any applicable contact information and demographic information such as your e-mail, first name, last name, location, place of employment, type of employment, industry, household income, race, age, and gender.

You do not have a statutory obligation to provide us with your information. You do not have a contractual obligation to provide us with your information under this policy, but if you do not, we may not be able to provide you with services you have requested or you may be limited in your use of our services (e.g., if you do not provide us with your e-mail address, we will not be able to send you newsletters).

Information Automatically Collected

We also may collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate through our Sites.

To make our Sites more useful to you, our servers (which may be hosted by a third-party service provider) may collect information from your computer or device, including but not limited to:

  • The date and time of your visit and the web pages and content you view and links you click on while navigating within our Sites or Applications;
  • Information about the type of content accessed via our Sites or Applications;
  • The site you visited before and after visiting our Sites;
  • Your Internet Protocol (IP) address (a numerical address assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so that other computers connected to the Internet can communicate with you online) that can sometimes be used to derive your general geographic area;
  • Search terms you enter using our Sites or Applications;
  • Unique identifiers, including non-global mobile device identification numbers;
  • Information about your computer device such as your device type, screen size, browser type, language and other settings, memory capacity, plug-ins, Internet domain, TCP configuration parameters, operating system, carrier code, time zone and the names, versions and package IDs of software installed on your device; and
  • Information collected through cookies, pixel tags and other tracking technologies (see additional descriptions of these terms below).

Information Collected from Third Parties

We may also collect information about you through non-affiliated third parties, such as market research firms and public sources. Depending on the source, this information collected from third parties could include information such as demographic information and brand and media consumption information. We may combine information that we collect about you through the Sites and Applications with information that we obtain from such third parties.

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

To help make the Sites more responsive to the needs of users, we employ a standard software feature, called a “cookie,” to assign each user a unique, random number that resides on a user’s computer or device. The cookie by itself does not personally identify the user; it merely identifies the computer or device with which the user accesses a Site or Application. Cookies help us track user trends and patterns. They also prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of a Site where you have entered preference information before.

When we post videos, third parties may use local shared objects, known as flash cookies to store your preferences for volume control or to personalize certain video features. Flash cookies are different from cookies because of the amount and type of data and how the data is stored.

We also may use web beacons (also known as “pixel tags”) to access cookies and to count users who visit our Sites. Pixel tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, that are used to track online movements of our users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, pixel tags are embedded invisibly in web pages and e-mail messages.

Analytics Services

We use third-party analytics services (“Analytics Services”), to help analyze how users use our Sites. The information generated by the cookies or other technologies about your use of our Sites (the “Analytics Information”) is transmitted to the Analytics Services. The Analytics Services use Analytics Information to compile reports on user activity. The Analytics Services may also transfer the Analytics Information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process Analytics Information on their behalf. Each Analytics Service’s ability to use and share Analytics Information is restricted by such Analytics Service’s terms of use and privacy policy. By using a Site or Application, you consent to the processing of data about you by Analytics Services in the manner and for the purposes set out above. For a full list of our Analytics Services, please contact us at privacy@telamon.com.

We also collect anonymized, cookie-based demographics data from third parties to analyze the composition of our audience.

Notice Concerning Do Not Track

Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. We are committed to providing you with meaningful choices about the information collected on our website for third party purposes, and that is why we provide the variety of opt-out mechanisms listed above. However, we do not currently recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals.

Use of Information

We use the information we collect about you to:

  • measure and analyze audience traffic, including tracking user interests, trends, and patterns;
  • identify you as a user in our system;
  • perform market research to understand the interests and preferences of our existing users;
  • provide enhancements and improvements to our advertisements, Sites and Applications;
  • provide the products and services you request;
  • create new products and services;
  • measure and analyze audience traffic, including tracking user interests, trends, and patterns;
  • respond to your inquiries related to Telamon, employment opportunities, and other questions and requests;
  • send newsletters, surveys, offers, and other promotional materials and for other marketing purposes;
  • help recognize you as a previous visitor and save and remember your preferences and settings;
  • understand whether our users read e-mail messages and click on links within those messages;
  • prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities, comply with applicable law and enforce our Terms of Service; and
  • for any other purposes disclosed to you at the time we collect your information or pursuant to your consent.

We may create aggregated or de-identified records based on information we collect about you (such as by removing your name). We reserve the right to use such data for any purpose and disclose such data to third parties in our sole discretion. For instance, when you respond to a survey, we may use, disclose and/or publish the responses you provide to us. However, we will not publish or disclose your name in connection with your response without your prior consent.

Legal Bases for Use of Your Information

The laws in some jurisdictions require companies to tell you about the legal ground they rely on to use or disclose your personal data. To the extent those laws apply, our legal grounds for processing your personal data are as follows:

  • Legitimate Interests. In many cases, we handle personal data on the ground that it furthers our legitimate interests in commercial activities such as the following in ways that are not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the affected individuals:
  • Customer service; marketing; personnel and property; analyzing and improving our business; and managing legal issues.
  • Legal Compliance. We need to use and disclose personal data in certain ways to comply with our legal obligations.
  • Where required by law, and in some other cases, we handle personal data on the basis of consent. Where we handle your personal data on the basis of consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent.
Disclosure of Information

Please also keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your information available for viewing by third parties online — for example on message boards, through e-mail or web logs, or in chat areas — that information can be seen, collected and used by others besides Telamon Corp. We cannot control who reads your postings or what other users may do with the information that you voluntarily post, so it is very important that you do not put data such as private contact information which you do not want to make available to the public in your posts. Once you have posted information publicly, while you may still be able to edit and delete it on our, you will not be able to edit or delete such information cached, collected, and stored elsewhere by others (e.g., search engines).

We may share some or all of your information with our parent company, subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under a common control (“Affiliates”), in which case we will require our Affiliates to honor this Privacy Policy.

We may share some or all of your information in connection with or during negotiation of any merger, financing, acquisition or dissolution transaction or proceeding involving sale, transfer, divestiture, or disclosure of all or a portion of our business or assets. In the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership, information may also be transferred as a business asset. If another company acquires our company, business, or assets, that company will possess the information collected by us and will assume the rights and obligations regarding your information as described in this Privacy Policy.

Some features of our Sites or Applications may enable you to post content to social networking services (“SNSs”). If you choose to do this, we will provide information to such SNSs in accordance with your elections. You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for your use of those websites and that it is your responsibility to review the terms of use and privacy policy of the third party provider of such SNSs. We will not be responsible or liable for: (i) the availability or accuracy of such SNSs; (ii) the content, products or services on or availability of such SNSs; or (iii) your use of any such SNSs.

Regardless of any choices you make regarding your information (as described below), we may disclose information if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary (a) in connection with any legal investigation; (b) to comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on Telamon Corp.; (c) to protect or defend the rights or property of Telamon Corp. or users of our Sites; and/or (d) to investigate or assist in preventing any violation or potential violation of the law, this Privacy Policy, or our Terms of Service.

Security

We have implemented administrative, technical, and physical security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and/or alteration of your information. These safeguards vary based on the sensitivity of the information that we collect and store. However, we cannot and do not guarantee that these measures will prevent every unauthorized attempt to access, use, or disclose your information since despite our efforts, no Internet and/or other electronic transmissions can be completely secure.

Data Retention

We will hold your information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes set forth in this Privacy Policy or as long as we are legally required or permitted to do so. Information may persist in copies made for backup and business continuity purposes for additional time.

Transfers of Information

Our Sites and Applications are operated in the United States. If you are located outside the United States, please be advised that any information you provide through our Sites and Applications will be transferred to the United States, which may not have a similar standard of for data protection as the laws of your jurisdiction for processing, hosting, and storage by us or our service providers.

Third-Party Sites

Our Sites and Applications may include links to third party websites and applications whose privacy policies we do not control. Once you leave our Sites, any information you provide at another site or application will be governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you are visiting or application you are using. We encourage you to review the privacy policy of any site or application that you use.

Children’s Privacy

The Sites and Applications are not directed to children under the age of thirteen and we do NOT knowingly collect personal information, as that term is defined in the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) from children under the age of thirteen. If we discover that a child under 13 has submitted personal information to us, we will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible.

We do not knowingly process data of EU residents under the age of 16 without parental consent. If we become aware that we have collected data from an EU resident under the age of 16 without parental consent, we will take reasonable steps to delete it as soon as possible. We also comply with other age restrictions and requirements in accordance with applicable local laws.

If you believe that we might have collected any personal information from a child under 13 or a resident of the EU who is under 16, please contact us at privacy@telamon.com.

Rights for Individuals in the EEA

Individuals in the EEA and other jurisdictions have certain legal rights to obtain confirmation of whether we hold personal data about them, to access personal data we hold about them, and to obtain its correction, update, amendment, or deletion in appropriate circumstances.
