1.4 Cookies, Web Beacons, and Other Info Collected Using Technology.

Career Snatch currently uses cookie and web beacon technology to associate certain Internet-related information about an individual with information about the individual in our database. Additionally, Career Snatch may use other new and evolving sources of information in the future (together, "Technology Information").

(a) Cookies. A cookie is a small amount of data stored on the hard drive of the individual's computer that allows Career Snatch to identify the individual with his or her corresponding data that resides in Career Snatch's database. You may read more about cookies at http://cookiecentral.com. Individuals who use the Website need to accept cookies in order to use all of the features and functionality of the Website.

(b) Web Beacons. A web beacon is programming code that can be used to display an image on a web page (by using an programming function -- see http://truste.org for more information), but can also be used to transfer an individual's unique user identification (often in the form of a cookie) to a database and associate the individual with previously acquired information about an individual in a database. This allows Career Snatch to track certain web sites an individual visits online. Web beacons are used to determine products or services an individual may be interested in, and to track online behavioral habits for marketing purposes. For example, Career Snatch might place, with the consent of a Third Party website, a web beacon on the Third Party's website where basketball products are sold. When Joe, an individual listed in Career Snatch's database, visits the fishing website, Career Snatch receives notice by means of the web beacon that Joe visited the basketball products site, and Career Snatch would then update Joe's profile with the information that Joe is interested in basketball. Career Snatch may thereafter present offers of basketball related products and services to Joe. In addition to using web beacons on web pages, Career Snatch also uses web beacons in email messages sent to individuals listed in Career Snatch's database.
