TERMS OF USE

PRIVACY STATEMENT AND TERMS OF USE

Effective Date: May 2017

Introduction

Kearney & Company, P.C. is a certified public accounting (“CPA”) firm that provides financial management services exclusively to the Federal Government. This Privacy Statement and Terms of Use (collectively, “Privacy Statement”) outlines our general policy and practices for protecting personal information that we may collect through our website at www.kearneyco.com and other websites (each, a “Site”) or downloadable applications access from mobile devices (“Mobile Apps”) that we operate and which post this Privacy Statement. This Privacy Statement explains the types of information we gather through our Sites, how we use that information, and the choices individuals may exercise regarding our use of, and their ability to correct, that information.  Please read these disclosures and policies (“Terms”) carefully before using this Site.   By using this Site you indicate that you acknowledge and accept these Terms, and by submitting personal information to us, you are consenting to use of your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Statement.

Notice, Choice, and Use

In order to use this Site, you do not need to send us any personal information. You may voluntarily provide us with personal information, such as your name and contact information, e.g., by submitting requests through our “Contact Us” mailbox. If you choose to apply for job openings through our Site, we may collect additional information such as name, address and other contact information, work and educational experience, licenses and certifications, and other personal information.

We do not seek sensitive personal information on our Sites except where we are required to do so as part of the recruitment process. Your decision to submit such information is entirely voluntary.  We may use the personal information you submit through the Site to respond to your requests, send you administrative information or notices, send you information about our services, and for our internal business purposes.

If you apply for job openings through our Sites, we may use this information to process and evaluate your application for employment and to communicate with you about employment opportunities. We may also retain and use this information to identify and communicate with you about future potential employment opportunities with us. If we elect to make an offer of employment, this information may become part of the employee file and may be used for other employment and work-related purposes.

We retain personal information for only so long as necessary for the intended purpose, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law or our document retention policies.

Cookies and Similar Technologies

As is the case with many commercial websites, Kearney automatically logs certain information about user access to the Site, which may include a user’s internet protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, operating system, as well as date and time stamps. We also use “cookies” which are small data files stored on a user’s computer to enhance your on-line experience when visiting our Site. The use of “cookies” is common practice for most websites; however, most Web browsers include settings that allow users to decline cookies.  The Site and Mobile App collect standard Internet log information including your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring website addresses. To ensure that the Site and Mobile App are well managed and to facilitate improved navigation, we or our service provider(s) may use cookies or Web beacons (electronic images that allow the website to count users who have accessed a particular page and to access certain cookies) to collect aggregate data.  Other third party tools and widgets may be used on our individual Sites or portions of the Sites to provide additional functionality.  Use of these tools or widgets may place a cookie on your device to make their service easier to use, and to ensure your interaction is displayed properly.  Depending on the specific Web page of the Site or Mobile App you are using, such information may consist of your name, current job title, company address, email address, telephone and fax numbers, correspondence with you, which newsletters you subscribe to, and other information you provide to us.

When using a Mobile App, in addition to contact information, we may also collect information relating to your devices, including your device model, operating system, browser type, unique device identifier, IP address, mobile phone number, mobile network carrier, location, and the way you are using the Mobile App. The information collected will depend on the functionality of the specific Mobile App you are using. If any other information is collected in connection with your use of a Mobile App, such information will be specified in the Mobile App.

We may also collect personal information if you register for the Site using a third party social network account (e.g., LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter). For example, the Site or a Mobile App may allow you to login using your social network account credentials. We may collect the user name associated with that social media account and any information or content you have permitted the social media network to share with us, such as your profile picture, email address, and birthday. The information we collect may depend on the privacy settings you have with the social network site, so please review the privacy statement or policy of the applicable social network site. When you access the Site through your social network account, you are authorizing us to collect and use your information in accordance with this Privacy Statement.

The Site may also collect content that you provide, including postings on blogs, forums, wikis and other social media applications and services that we may provide.

By accessing or using our Sites, you agree that we, or a third party acting on our behalf, can place these cookies on your computer or internet-enabled device. 

 Do Not Track Signals

Some Web browsers incorporate a “do-not-track” or similar feature that signals to websites with which the browser communicates that a visitor does not want to have his or her online activity tracked. As of the Effective Date of this policy, not all browsers offer a “do-not-track” option and “do-not-track” signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, Kearney does not currently respond to “do-not-track” signals.

 Disclosures and Transfers

Kearney will not disclose an individual’s personal information to third parties, except as set forth in this Privacy Statement, when we have the individual’s permission to make the disclosure, or as necessary to fulfill the purpose for which the information was submitted. We also may use or disclose personal information as we believe to be necessary or appropriate (a) under applicable law (including to meet a national security or law enforcement requirement), (b) to comply with legal process or professional standards, (c) to protect our rights, privacy, safety or property and/or those of our affiliates or clients; or (d) in a merger, acquisition or asset sale.

Kearney may use third-party service providers to provide administrative or operational support to Kearney, or to provide engagement team resource services. Such entities may be located within or outside the United States. We require all such service providers to protect the information we entrust to them and to use such information only as necessary to provide services to us.

Additionally, Kearney may disclose and transfer personal information to service providers, within Kearney, or among its affiliates, and this transfer may result in data passing from one jurisdiction to another, including to and from the United States of America. Because privacy laws vary from one jurisdiction to another, personal information may be transferred to a jurisdiction where the laws may differ from the laws in the jurisdiction in which the information originated.

User Obligations

 Materials on the Site. Unless otherwise indicated, the Site and the material on the Site, including but not limited to all text, HTML code, graphics, button images, and the Site design and “look and feel,” are owned or licensed by Kearney and are protected pursuant to U.S. and foreign copyright, trademark, and other laws. No intellectual property or other rights in or to this Site or its contents are transferred to you. This Site and the material on this Site may not be modified, copied, distributed, republished, downloaded, uploaded, or commercially exploited in any manner without our prior written consent, except that you are permitted to download a copy of any of the materials on this Site on a single computer for personal, noncommercial use, provided no copyright, trademark or other proprietary notices are removed. The information provided on the Site is provided solely for illustrative and/or informational purposes and does not create any business, contractual, or employment relationship. Any and all services marks or trademarks used on the Site are the registered and/or unregistered service marks or trademarks of Kearney or its licensors. The use of these or any other service marks or trademarks on the Site is prohibited without express written permission from us and/or the owner of any such service mark or trademark.

Third-Party Linking / Hyperlinks. We grant you limited and revocable permission to create a hyperlink to the home page of this website so long as (i) the hyperlink or your linking website does not portray us or any of our products or services in a false, misleading, derogatory, or otherwise offensive matter; (ii) your linking website complies with all applicable laws and does not otherwise violate the rights of others; and (iii) your linking website has, maintains, and follows a privacy policy no less protective of user data than the privacy policy of our website.

You may not use any of our logos or other proprietary graphics or marks as part of the hyperlink or linking website without our express written permission. By providing you permission to hyperlink to our website, we are not granting you any rights in any of our logos or other proprietary graphics or marks beyond the permission to display the link to identify our website.

Third-Party Sites. This Privacy Statement does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy, information, or other practices of any third parties, including any third party operating any website or service to which the Site links. The inclusion of a link on the Site does not imply endorsement of the linked site or service by us or by our affiliates.  We encourage users to review the privacy policy of each site visited before disclosing any personal information.  IN NO EVENT WILL KEARNEY BE LIABLE, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, TO ANYONE FOR ANY DAMAGES OR LOSSES ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO ANY USE OR RELIANCE ON ANY PRODUCTS, SERVICES, OR OTHER CONTENT RELATING TO ANY THIRD-PARTY WEBSITE OR THE OWNER OR OPERATOR THEREOF.

Data Security

The security of your personal information is important to us. We seek to use reasonable physical (e.g. key card office entry, locking doors), technical (e.g. password protection, network firewalls, laptop encryption, authentication mechanisms), and administrative safeguards (e.g. confidentiality agreements, training, procedures that limit access to and use of data) to protect the information we process. However, no method of transferring data over the Internet or storing electronic data is completely secure. Therefore, while we strive to use reasonable and appropriate means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee absolute security.

 Data Integrity

We process personal information only in ways compatible with the purpose for which it was collected, as subsequently authorized by the individual, or as otherwise permitted by applicable law. To the extent necessary for such purposes, we take reasonable steps to make sure that personal information is accurate, complete, current, and otherwise reliable with regard to its intended use.

Merger, Change in Ownership, and Other Business Transitions

In the event Kearney goes through a business transition, such as a merger, or the acquisition or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your personal information may be among the assets transferred.

Kearney understands the importance of protecting children’s privacy in the interactive, online world.  Kearney’s Sites are not designed for or directed at persons 13 years of age or younger, and we do not intentionally collect information from anyone under the age of 13.
