Digital Market Research, Inc. - Privacy Statement

Digital Market Research, Inc. (DMR) is committed to respecting the privacy of our users. We strive to provide a safe, secure user experience. This Privacy Statement sets forth the online data collection and usage policies and practices that apply to DMR's Web site. By using DMR's Web site, you consent to the policies and practices described in this Statement.

Your data will be stored and processed in whole or in part in the United States. If you access DMR's Web site outside the United States, your usage of that site constitutes consent to the transfer of your data out of your country and to the United States.

Our site may contain links to other Web sites over which we have no control. DMR is not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of other Web sites to which you choose to link from a DMR Web site. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of those other Web sites so you can understand how they collect, use and share your information. This Privacy Statement applies solely to the information we collect on a DMR Web site, and does not apply to information we collect in any other fashion.

Collection and Retention of Information

In some areas of our Web site, DMR requests or may request that you provide personal information, including your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number credit card number, social security number, contact information, billing information and any other information from which your identity is discernible. In other areas, DMR collects or may collect demographic information that is not unique to you such as your ZIP code, age, preferences, gender, interests and favorites. Sometimes we collect or may collect a combination of the two types of information. Examples of areas on DMR Web sites where we collect personal or combined personal and demographic data are pages where you can post or email a resume.

We also gather or may gather certain information about your use of our site, such as what areas you visit and what services you access. Moreover, there is information about your computer hardware and software that is or may be collected by DMR. This information can include without limitation your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses.

DMR may sometimes afford you the opportunity to provide descriptive, cultural, behavioral, preferential and/or life style information about yourself, but it is solely up to you whether you furnish such information. If you do provide such information, you are thereby consenting to the use of that information in accordance with the policies and practices described in this Statement. For example, such information may be used for the purpose of determining your potential interest in receiving email or other communications about particular job openings or available products or services.

Please remember that if you post any of your personal information in public areas of DMR, such as in online forums or chat rooms, such information may be collected and used by others over whom DMR has no control. We are not responsible for the use made by third parties of information you post or otherwise make available in public areas of DMR.

Since we believe that managing your career is a life-long process, we retain indefinitely all the information we gather about you in an effort to make your repeat use with us more efficient, practical, and relevant.

Use of Information by DMR

We use the information we gather on a DMR Web site, whether personal, demographic, collective or technical, for the purpose of operating and improving the DMR Web site, fostering a positive user experience, and delivering the products and services that we offer.

We may also use the information we gather to inform you of other products or services available from DMR or its affiliated companies or to contact you about your opinion of current products and services or potential new products and services that may be offered. (The term "affiliated companies" is defined in the section of this Statement entitled "Contact Information.")

We may use your contact information in order to send you e-mail or other communications regarding updates at the DMR site, such as new DMR opportunities and additional listings which may be of interest to you. The nature and frequency of these messages will vary depending upon the information we have about you. In addition, you may have the option to elect to receive additional communications, information and promotions including without limitation free informational newsletters from DMR relating to topics that may be of special interest to you, such as career management advice.

We have an area where you can submit feedback. Any feedback you submit in this area becomes our property, and we can use such feedback (such as success stories) for marketing purposes or contact you for further information.

Disclosure of Information to Others

We do not disclose to third parties your personal information, combined personal and demographic information or information about your use of a DMR Web site (such as the areas you visit or the services you access), except as set forth in the following subparagraphs.

  1. We may disclose such information to third parties if you consent to such disclosure. For example, if you indicate that you would like to receive information about the products or services of third parties, we may supply your contact information to third parties such as employers, recruiters, data aggregators, marketers or others for the purpose of sending you e-mail or otherwise communicating with you. We may use data we have about you (such as the interests and preferences you have expressed) to determine whether you might be interested in the products or services of a particular third-party

  2. We may disclose such information to companies and individuals we employ to perform functions on our behalf. Examples may include hosting our Web servers, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. These companies and individuals will have access to your personal information as necessary to perform their functions, but they may not share that information with any other third party.

  3. We may disclose such information if legally required to do so, if requested to do so by a governmental entity or if we believe in good faith that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process; (b) protect the rights or property of DMR or its affiliated companies; (c) prevent a crime or protect national security; or (d) protect the personal safety of users or the public.

  4. We may disclose and transfer such information to a third party who acquires all or a substantial portion of DMR's business, whether such acquisition is by way of merger, consolidation or purchase of all or a substantial portion of our assets. In addition, in the event DMR becomes the subject of a bankruptcy proceeding, whether voluntary or involuntary, DMR or its trustee in bankruptcy may sell, license or otherwise dispose of such information in a transaction approved by the bankruptcy court.

DMR may also share aggregated anonymous information about visitors to its Web sites (for example, the number of visitors to DMR's Immediate Openings area) with its clients, partners and other third parties so that they may understand the kinds of visitors to DMR's site and how those visitors use the site.

DMR supplies recruitment information to leading companies for the purposes of candidate presentment. Personal and/or demographic information supplied by you as private label recruitment becomes part of the DMR database, but it is not accessible by anyone other than you, DMR and the company concerned without your consent.

Information gathered as private label recruitment, may become the property of the other company or of both DMR and the other company. In that instance, the use of such information by the other company may be subject to the privacy policy of that company and, in any event, DMR is not responsible for that company's use of your personal or demographic information.

If you apply for a position, you may be asked to provide information on your age, gender or race.  Some employers are required by law to gather this information from job applicants for reporting and record keeping requirements.  You should understand that if provided, this information will be used by employers only in accordance with applicable law and will not be used in making any employment decisions.  All information provided will be kept separate from your expression of interest in any job opportunity.   Providing this information is strictly voluntary and you will not be subject to any adverse action or treatment if you choose not to provide this information.


Since DMR is a placement firm with a career site, we give you the option of submitting your resume to DMR for entry into our database. We store your resume in our database, but not allow it to be searchable by potential employers.  Not allowing your resume to be searchable means that you can use it to apply for a job online, but employers and recruiters will not have access to search it through our resume database product.  We limit access to our resume database (or copies thereof) only to DMR Personnel, recruiters, hiring managers, headhunters, and human resource professionals, and when requested, to law enforcement and national security agencies.  You may request that your resume be removed from our database at any time. However, employers, recruiters and others who have already received a copy of your resume during the course of the placement process may have retained a copy of your resume in their own files or databases. We are not responsible for the retention, use or privacy of resumes in these instances.

Use of Cookies

DMR uses "cookies" to help personalize and maximize your online experience and time online.  A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard drive by a Web page server. Cookies are not used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer.  Cookies are uniquely assigned to your computer, and can only be read by a Web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time.  The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page.  For example, if you personalize DMR pages, or register for services, a cookie helps us to recall your specific information (such as user name, password and preferences).  Because of our use of cookies, we can deliver faster and more accurate results and a more personalized site experience. When you return to the DMR site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the features that you customized. We also use cookies to track click streams and for load balancing.

You may have the ability to accept or decline cookies.  Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline all cookies if you prefer. Alternatively, you may be able to modify your browser setting to notify you each time a cookie is tendered and permit you to accept or decline cookies on an individual basis.  If you choose to decline cookies, however, that may hinder performance and negatively impact your experience on the DMR Web site.

Use of Web Beacons

DMR Web pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) that allow us to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services.  Web beacons are not used to access your personally identifiable information on DMR; they are a technique we use to compile aggregated statistics about our Web site usage

Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the Web beacon resides.


DMR has implemented reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure.  However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes.


DMR is not intended for children under 13 years of age.  We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13.
