Sources of Personal Data
QMI and certain third-party providers of tools utilized in the Services collect personal data from various sources, including:
- From Cookies and Tracking Technologies: When you use the Services, we or our third-party providers may automatically collect personal data from you through tracking and similar technologies that tells us which pages were visited and by how many users, the order in which pages were visited, and which hyperlinks were "clicked." Collecting this data may involve the collection of IP addresses, device IDs, and other online identifiers, operating system and browser software used by each user. Although such information is not personally identifiable, we or our third-party providers can identify the city and country in which a user is based, and we may be able to determine additional geographic location data.
The data we collect automatically from you helps us diagnose problems with our server, administer the Services, identify the most popular areas or features of the Services, identify where our users are coming from and determine the effectiveness of our promotional activities.
Log Data: When you access the Services, our servers automatically record data that your browser or mobile device sends whenever you visit the Web site or our mobile applications. These server logs may include information such as your web request, IP address, device ID, geolocation, browser type, browser language, your computer operating system, email patterns, your mobile device and mobile operating system, the name of your internet service provider or your mobile carrier, the date and time of your request, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.
Geolocation Data: QMI may collect data about your geolocation when you access any of our mobile applications. If you do not enable the service to use your geolocation data or if the app does not have that feature, we will not collect or store your geolocation data.
- Directly From You: QMI and certain third-party providers of tools utilized in the Services collect personally identifiable information through voluntary submissions you make via the Services.
- Certain features of the Services and third-party tools utilized in the Services, such as inquiries submitted through our “contact us” page and careers or job pages, requests for information from us and registration, may require that you provide personally identifiable information (including, for example, mailing address, zip code, gender, age, date of birth, income, phone number and e-mail address). We and our third-party provider may have access to this data.
- When registering to set up an account or to use certain aspects of the Services such as e-mail, chat or messenger features, and forums, or to receive certain alerts, newsletters or specifically targeted information, we or our third-party provider do require that you provide a valid e-mail address, date of birth and zip code. Additional personally identifiable information may also be voluntarily provided by you. We and our third-party provider will have access to this data.
- From Third Parties: We work with third-party service providers in connection with our Services. Such third-party services may include payment partners, website hosting, marketing, website usage analytics, and monitoring and maintaining the Services. In working with our service providers we may share your personal data with them and receive data back from them so that we may provide the Services to you.
How We Use Data
QMI uses the data we collect from you for the following business purposes:
- To evaluate your employment inquiry or application.
- In the event we offer account features, we may use data collected from you to identify you when you sign in to your account and to create and maintain your account and profile.
- To respond to your questions or inquiries.
- E-mail address, social media username, or other contact information to deliver newsletters, alerts and other information requested by you. QMI limits our own e-mail contact and solicitations to those customers who have "opted in" to receiving such communications. The solicitations are limited in that they, among other things, will clearly indicate the originator of the e-mail and provide the customer with a method of "opting out" of receiving future communications of a similar nature.
- To "pre-populate" forms, which are displayed for the purpose of collecting individual data by us and/or our sponsors.
How We Share and Disclose Personal Data
QMI may share or disclose your personal data to the following parties and under the following circumstances. Please also review the chart above related to categories of third parties.
- During the registration process or during other interactions with the Services, you may choose to "opt in" to receiving promotional materials from us and/or our affiliates. If you "opt in" to receiving such promotional materials, QMI reserves the right to release any personally identifiable registration information regarding you to third parties who provide goods or services that we believe may be of interest to you. If you decide that you would like to discontinue receiving promotional information from such third parties, please contact those third parties directly, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Your personal information provided through the Services may also be an asset of QMI’s business transferred to a third party in the event of a sale, merger or other business combination involving QMI.
- We may also share your personal data (a) to comply with a law, regulation, or other governmental request, for example, to comply with subpoenas, court orders, legal process, or requests by law enforcement or governmental entities, (b) to investigate or defend against third-party claims against QMI, (c) to detect, prevent, or investigate fraud or other illegal activity or to enforce the Terms, (d) to respond to a request by you to disclose the information, (e) with your knowledge and consent, and (f) to address emergencies or acts of god.

Additional California User Rights and Choices
California residents only have the following additional rights and choices under the CCPA:
Right to Know. You have the right to know the personal data we have about you. When you request that we provide you with the data we collect or disclose we will provide you with an individualized response about our collection and use of your personal data over the past 12 months. That response will include:
- Specific pieces of personal data we have collected about you
- The categories of personal data we have collected (see chart above)
- The sources from which we have collected your personal data
- If we sell personal information, our business purpose for collecting or selling personal data
- The categories of third parties to whom we have disclosed or sold personal data
- Whether we have disclosed or sold your personal data for a business purpose.
You may only exercise this right twice within a 12-month period.
Right to Request Deletion. You have the right to request deletion of personal data we have about you. When you request that we delete your personal data, we will delete personal data we maintain about you from our records as of the date of your request subject to certain limitations. We will also request that any service providers that we know maintain your data on our behalf also delete your personal data. In some cases, deletion may be accomplished through de-identification of the information.
Please note that certain information may be excepted from your deletion request. For example, we may keep your information where necessary to detect and resolve issues related to system security and fraud detection.
Exercising Your Right to Know or Right to Request Deletion. To exercise the right to know and request deletion described above please initiate a verifiable consumer request through the web portal link provided below or by calling toll free 844-957-1731. You may also contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions about your right to know or deletion described above, you may contact us at email@example.com.
We cannot respond to your right to know or deletion if we cannot verify your identity or the authority of your agent to make the request and confirm that the personal data we maintain that relates to you. When you make a request, we will verify your identity by matching two or three data points that you provide with data points that we maintain and have determined to be reliable for the purposes of verification (e.g., telephone number and email address).
You must also describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. If we have questions regarding your request you must make an effort to respond to our inquiries. If we do not understand your request we may not be able to comply.
Response Timing and Format. Where possible, we will respond to a verified right to know or delete request within 45 days of receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and the need for an extension.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verified consumer request's receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal data that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information to another entity.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
Right to Opt-Out of Sale of Personal Information. QMI does not sell personal data collected through the Services.
Authorized Agents. You may designate an authorized agent to make requests on your behalf. We will require verification that you did in fact give that person your authorization. Unless the law requires otherwise, your authorized agent must provide contact details for you. We will contact you to confirm that you authorized the agent to act on your behalf. Once you confirm, we will promptly respond to the rights request.
Non-Discrimination.We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of the rights listed in this section. Specifically, we will not:
- Deny you Services, except to the extent that not having personal data prevents us from providing any aspect of the Services.
- Provide you a different level or quality of Services, except to the extent that not having personal data limits our ability to provide any aspect of the Services.
- Charge or suggest that we will charge you different prices or rates for the Services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.

We use standard physical, technical and administrative measures designed to reduce the risk of loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure or modification of your personal data. These security measures include Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology data transmission. However, no method of transmitting or storing data is completely secure. As a result, although we strive to protect the personal data we collect about you, we cannot guarantee the security of any information we collect through the Services. If you have reason to believe that your personal data is no longer secure, please notify us immediately by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
QMI will retain your personal information collected through the Services for as long as QMI deems reasonably necessary or desirable, unless you make a verifiable request to delete your personal data or unless a different retention period is required by any applicable law, rule, or regulation.
