Williams & Company Privacy Statement

Effective Date: December 4, 2015

Thomas E. Williams & Company, LLC (“Williams & Company”, “we” or “our”) understands that you are concerned about privacy, so we’ve provided this privacy statement (the “Privacy Statement”) to disclose how we collect, use, share, and store your information. This Privacy Statement applies to all websites that we own or operate, including “williamscompany.net”.


Personally Identifiable Information

As appropriate, Williams & Company may collect personally identifiable information from you when you voluntarily provide it to us, including, for example, when you register as a candidate, submit a resume, respond to employment opportunities, or communicate with us via email, social media, postal mail or phone. This information may include your name, address, telephone number, email address, resume, information about your current employment (potentially including your current salary, if you provide it), information about your professional accomplishments, information about your career objectives, and any other information you choose to provide to us. We may also collect personal information about you from third parties, including, for example, when a reference you identify provides information about you, or from other sources such as public or private databases and social media platforms. We may also collect information about you such as your use of our website and communication preferences. To the extent we are able to do so, we may link non-personally identifiable information relating to you with your personally identifiable information. We may also link information collected online with information we collect offline or that is collected online by third parties. We collect this information in order to identify potential candidates for employment opportunities, to improve the delivery of our services, and to improve the relevance of the information we provide on our website.

Non-personally Identifiable Information

We do not collect personally identifiable information from your computer when you browse this website and request pages from the servers. Unless you voluntarily and knowingly provide us with personally identifiable information, we will not know your name, your email address, or any other personally identifiable information simply from your browsing activity. We do, however, collect automatically certain non-personally identifiable information. For example, we collect information about the devices you use to connect to our website, such as the IP address of your computer or numeric identifier of your mobile device and about how and when you use our website (as noted above, this information does not identify you personally unless you choose to identify yourself to us).


We use cookies and similar technologies to collect additional website usage information and to improve our website and services. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer or mobile device. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with our website and to monitor aggregate usage by our users. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You may set your browser to block cookies (consult the instructions for your particular browser on how to do this), although certain portions of our website may not function properly if you do so. In addition to cookies, Williams & Company may use other now known or later developed technologies to assist Williams & Company in observing the behavior of users visiting our website.


William & Company’s website uses Google Analytics (and in the future may use other similar sites or services), a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”), to assist us in understanding how the website is used. Google Analytics, in addition to other technologies Google may use, will place cookies on your computer and will generate non-personally identifiable information that we select about your use of our website, including your computer’s IP address. That information will be transmitted to and stored by Google. The information will be used for the purpose of evaluating visitor’s use of our website, compiling reports on website activity for Williams & Company ‘s use, and providing other services relating to website activity and usage. The collection of information by Google Analytics is covered by Google’s privacy policy.


With your consent, Williams & Company may share your personal information with prospective employers for their consideration of your candidacy for employment. We may disclose your personal information, without your consent, to: (1) enforce our Terms of Use or other policies; (2) protect and defend the rights or property of Williams & Company, our website, customers, or others; (3) comply with a court order or other legal process or other legal requirements of any governmental authorities; (4) governmental authorities, in the sole discretion of Williams & Company, in exceptional circumstances, such as a national emergency, security concern, or other situation in which Williams & Company deems such disclosure prudent; (5) a person who in the reasonable judgment of Williams & Company is seeking the information on your behalf; or (6) a third party or parties, where disclosure is required or permitted by law. We may also transfer your personal information, without your consent, to any other entity that acquires all or a portion of our organization by merger, reorganization, operation of law, or a sale of some or all of Williams & Company’s assets.

Additionally, Williams & Company may provide your personal information, without your consent, to service providers or contractors to perform functions on our behalf, including, but not limited to, companies or individuals hired to: communicate news; deliver Williams & Company’s promotional materials via email and direct mail; promote Williams & Company’s social media presence and activities; to develop, enhance, market, or provide any of Williams & Company’s services; and to assist Williams & Company otherwise with sending communications and performing other marketing and support functions. These parties are contractually prohibited from using personally identifiable information for any purpose other than for the purpose Williams & Company specifies. Also, Williams & Company may use third-party social media platforms, including third-party social media websites, to communicate with you. We also provide non-personally identifiable information to certain service providers for their use on an aggregated basis for the purpose of performing their contractual obligations to us.


The Williams & Company website may contain links to third-party websites or other online services, including social media platforms. Such third parties have their own policies that govern their collection, use, and disclosure of information. In the case of social media platforms, the privacy settings you have chosen for those individual social media platforms will affect whether and what personal information of yours is made public. Williams & Company has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our website and to read the privacy statements of each and every website or online service that they visit and to consciously select their privacy settings on any social media platforms they use.


Your browser and other mechanisms may permit you to send do-not-track signals or other similar signals to express your preferences regarding online tracking. To the extent you employ such browser do-not-track signals or other similar mechanisms, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to honor such requests received by us to the extent we have the capacity and resources to identify and process your request. Due to the potential for rapid and diverse developments of technology in this area, we cannot guarantee that we can process every type of request that exists or may be developed in the future. As noted above, third parties may collect data that relates to you. We cannot control third parties’ responses to do-not-track signals or other such mechanisms. Third parties’ use of data relating to you and responsiveness to do-not-track signals is governed by their respective privacy policies.


It is our intention to send you only email communications that will be useful to you and that you want to receive. These communications will relate to Williams & Company’s services. We use a third-party email service provider to send emails. This service provider is prohibited from using your email address for any purpose other than to send Williams & Company related email. When you receive an email, you will be provided the choice to opt-out of future emails by following the instructions provided in the email.


Williams & Company utilizes commercially reasonable safeguards to maintain the security and privacy of personal information that you provide to us. Nonetheless, Williams & Company cannot guarantee the security of any data transmitted over the Internet. Once your information reaches Williams & Company, we use systems designed to block reasonably foreseeable intrusions by unauthorized third parties. Information collected on the sites covered by this Privacy Statement is generally processed and stored in the United States.


Williams & Company does not knowingly or intentionally collect any personally identifiable information from, or market to, individuals under the age of 18. If Williams & Company learns that, despite these measures, a child under the age of 13 has submitted personally identifiable information to Williams & Company through the website, we will take reasonable measures to delete such information from our records and to not use such information for any purpose (except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as required by law).
